"Bigmouth Strikes Again" as written by and Steven Patrick/marr Morrissey....
Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
When I said I'd like to smash every tooth
In your head

Oh, sweetness, sweetness, I was only joking
When I said by rights you should be
Bludgeoned in your bed

And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
Now I know how Joan of Arc felt
As the flames rose to her roman nose
And her Walkman started to melt
Oh

[Chorus]
Bigmouth, la, bigmouth, la
Bigmouth strikes again
And I've got no right to take my place
With the Human race

Oh, bigmouth, la, bigmouth, la
Bigmouth strikes again
And I've got no right to take my place
With the Human race

And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
Now I know how Joan of Arc felt
As the flames rose to her roman nose
And her hearing aid started to melt

[Chorus: x4]

    General CommentI read in an interview that this song is about how one of Morrissey's previous friends was obsessed with Dr Who, and how it drove him crazy. The first two paragraphs show the violent urges he feels towards this friend. “Bigmouth” referring to his friend's continuous talk about Dr Who. Finally Morrissey makes a personal insult towards the Doctor himself, with the line “And I've got no right to take my place With the Human race” referring to the doctors inability to fit in with humans, and other social failures.
