"Best Friend on the Payroll" as written by and Steven Patrick/whyte Morrissey....
I turn the music down; and I don't know why, this is my house
I turn the music down; and I don't know why, this is my house
The best friend on the payroll
No, no, no, it's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out
No, no, no, no
The best friend on the payroll
Oh, no, no, no, it's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out

More breakfast in bed, and I'll bring the paper in later
The best friend on the payroll
Oh, no, no, no, it's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out
No, no, no, no
The best friend on the payroll
Oh, no, no, no, it's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out

More breakfast in bed, and I'll bring the paper in later
The best friend on the payroll
No, no, no, it's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out
No, no, no, no
The best friend on the payroll
No, no, no, no, it's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out

    General CommentIt's actually well documented in several biographies, that this song is about Jake, Morrissey's one time "personal assistant" around the time of 'Vauxhal and I." Like other Morrissey associates Jakes time came and went, and this song was Morrissey's way of telling Jake it was time for him to be on his way. Jake was a scary looking guy who had the letters MOZ tattoes across his six pack as seen on the 'Boxers' single.
