"Half A Person (The Smiths cover)" as written by Johnny Marr and Steven Patrick Morrissey....
Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent six years on your trail

Six full years
On your trail

Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent six years on your trail

Six full years of my life on your trail

And if you have five seconds to spare
I'll tell you the story of my life:

Sixteen, clumsy and shy
I went to London and I

I booked myself in at the Y.W.C.A
I said: "I like it here - can I stay?
(I like it here - can I stay?)

I like it here - can I stay?
(I like it here - can I stay?)

And do you have a vacancy
for a back-scrubber?"

She was left behind, and sour
And she wrote to me equally dour

She said: "In the days when you were
hopelessly poor
I just liked you more..."

And if you have five seconds to spare
I'll tell you the story of my life:

Sixteen, clumsy and shy

I went to London and I
I booked myself in at the Y.W.C.A

I said: "I like it here - can I stay?
(I like it here - can I stay?)

I like it here - can I stay?
(I like it here - can I stay?)

And do you have a vacancy
for a back-scrubber?"

Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent too long on your trail

Far too long
chasing your tail
