"Used To Be A Sweet Boy" as written by and Steven Patrick/whyte Morrissey....
Used to be a sweet boy
Holding so tightly
To Daddy's hand
But that was all
In some distant land
Blazer and tie
And a big bright healthy smile
Used to make all
Of our trials worthwhile

Used to be a sweet boy
And I'm not to blame
But something went wrong
Something went wrong
And I know
I'm not to blame
Something went wrong
Can't be to blame
Ah

    General CommentThis is a hidden gem on Vauxhall and I. A beautiful tune. Is this song about Morrissey himself...
    As a parent whose children have gone a stray in life this song will mean a lot. The early pride in your son - his promise, an d then it all to go wrong... is it his or your fault. powerful.

    General Comment"Is this song about Morrissey himself"

    I believe it's one of his most personal songs, adressing his own strained relationship with his father.

    General CommentA song about everyone. As a youth, you had so much promise. Then you became an adult and did things you never thought you would. Dad, get me out of this.
