"Don't Make Fun of Daddy's Voice" as written by and Steven Patrick/whyte Morrissey....
Long ago when he was young and restless
Suddenly Daddy saw the beckoning finger of fate

Don't make fun of Daddy's voice
Because he can't help it
When he was a teenage boy
Something got stuck in his throat

When you are young you crave affection
And it can come from the strangest direction

Don't make fun of Daddy's voice
Because he can't help it
When he was teenage boy
Something got stuck in his throat

Don't make fun of Daddy's voice
Because he can't help it
When he was teenage boy
Something got stuck in his throat

No te divertes con Papi
No te divertes con Papi
No te divertes con Papi
No te divertes con Papi
No te divertes con Papi
No te divertes con Papi
No te divertes con Papi
No te divertes con Papi

    General CommentTo the above comment: The gay connotations are obvious and if you don't hear them then it would make sense that YOU are as stupid as your implication that "gays are sick" is. On to more important matters, I think this song is fun, hillarious and meaningful. It can definately be taken as described above (by our more intelligent postersm, not "somnians") -- a late blooming realization that one is gay or it can also be seen as Morrissey's own recognition of his place as older statesman of alternative rock. Given all of the bands that have imitated his and the Smiths work -- it is an aknowledgement, almost Sunset Blvd-esque in it's campiness, of his place as an icon, or "Daddy"

    General CommentBono sings the way he does because he got his teeth punched out as a teenager - maybe related to this song?

    And Bono is an elder statesman of rock :P

    General CommentI thought the "something got stuck in his throat" was a double entendre meaning getting the gay accent and oral sex. Don't you think? Like getting a 'bone' stuck in your throat! I thought this song was hilarioius!!

    General CommentI was thinking about the double entendre too, and I think that could be it too.

    General CommentWhy should it be sick? Homosexuals references are regularly made in Morrissey's lyrics, just like allusions to criminals, romantics and perverts (hey!)

    I watched "Who Put the 'M' in Manchester?" and I automatically thought he was referring to oral sex/lisp. His gestures even seems to rather support that idea.

    My InterpretationYes...when I first heard it, I wondered if it was autobiographical, i.e. did something like this happen to young Morrissey. "When he was a teenage boy
    Something got stuck in his throat." I've picked up his autobiography and wondered if he discloses anything close to an experience like this. No spoilers please! I have not gone that far into the book yet.
