Trudging slowly over wet sandIn "Viva Hate" where the song originally appeared, the lyrics were transcribed slightly differently. The following are transcribed in light pink as they appear in the latter album and are reproduced here without permission. Variations between the printed lyrics and what is sung by Morrissey are indicated in darker text for additions and omissions are deleted.
Trudging slowly over wet sand1 For a certain time on the Kill Uncle tour in 1991, Morrissey sang "back down to the bench where your clothes were stolen".
2 In most live performances on the Kill Uncle tour, Morrissey sang "I do believe this is the coastal town". He did this now and then in 2004 and 2007.
3 On a few dates in the middle of the 2007 Greatest Hits tour Morrissey extended this line to "come Armageddon come, soon, please!".
4 In all live performances of this song Morrissey actually sang "scratch on a postcard". On the You Are The Quarry tour he sometimes followed the line with "dear Mum I dearly wish I was not here", "Mama! how I dearly wish...", "Mummie how I dearly wish...", "Oh God! how I dearly wish..." or "Jesus! how I dearly wish..." Near the end of that tour he settled on "Oh Mama! how I dearly wish I was not here" and this is the way he would keep on doing the song in 2006. Then in early 2007 this became "Oh Mama! how I dearly wish I had never been born". Later in 2007 and in 2008 he reverted to "Oh Mama! how I dearly wish I was not here".
5 In most if not all live performances of this song on the Kill Uncle and 2002 tours and on a few dates during the first American leg of the Your Arsenal tour, Morrissey actually sang this as "please come, please come nuclear bomb". He did this a few more times as well in early 2007. Then later in 2007-2008 on the Greatest Hits tour "please come, please come nuclear bomb" was almost standard.
6 In live performances Morrissey often sings or mumbles a few words after this line. These words have yet to be deciphered. On some dates he would just hum those words or sing something that sounded like "bum, ba-dum, ba-dum".
7 Now and then on the first leg of the 2007 Greatest Hits tour Morrissey changed this line to variations such as "on your face, God bless your face", "on your face, your sweet little face" and "on your face, your strong face".
8 In live performances of this song, after the final line "everyday is silent and grey", Morrissey added a few lines of "... when you're on your own, on your own, on your own". When he started doing the song live in 1991, this addition was often mumbled or hummed, but later it was sung more clearly. In 2002 he would sometimes sing "...especially when you're on your own". In the latter half of 2004, late 2006 and in 2007 this became "...at least when you're all alone, when you're on your own, when you're all alone" or a variation on that.
