      The Smiths - Paint A Vulgar Picture Música y Letra, MP3 GRATIS

      At the record company meeting
      On their hands - a dead star
      And oh, the plans they weave
      And oh, the sickening greed
      
      At the record company party
      On their hands - a dead star
      The sycophantic slags all say :
      "I knew him first, and I knew him well"
      
      
      Re-issue ! Re-package ! Re-package !
      Re-evaluate the songs
      Double-pack with a photograph
      Extra Track (and a tacky badge)
      
      
      A-list, playlist
      "Please them , please them !"
      "Please them !"
      (sadly, THIS was your life)
      
      
      But you could have said no
      If you'd wanted to
      You could have said no
      If you'd wanted to
      
      
      BPI, MTV, BBC
      "Please them ! Please them !"
      (sadly this was your life)
      
      
      But you could have said no
      If you'd wanted to
      You could have walked away
      ...Couldn't you ?
      
      
      I touched you at the soundcheck
      You had no real way of knowing
      In my heart I begged "Take me with you ...
      I don't care where you're going..."
      
      
      But to you I was faceless
      I was fawning, I was boring
      Just a child from those ugly new houses
      Who could never begin to know
      
      
      Who could never really know
      Oh ...
      
      
      Best of ! Most of !
      Satiate the need
      Slip them into different sleeves !
      Buy both, and feel deceived
      
      
      Climber - new entry, re-entry
      World tour ! ("media whore")
      "Please the Press in Belgium !"
      (THIS was your life...)
      
      
      And when it fails to recoup ?
      Well, maybe :
      You just haven't earned it yet, baby
      
      
      I walked a pace behind you at the soundcheck
      You're just the same as I am
      What makes most people feel happy
      Leads us headlong into harm
      
      
      So, in my bedroom in those 'ugly new houses'
      I danced my legs down to the knees
      But me and my 'true love'
      Will never meet again ...
      
      
      At the record company meeting
      On their hands - at last ! - a dead star !
      But they can never taint you in my eyes
      No, they can never touch you now
      
      
      No, they cannot hurt you, my darling
      They cannot touch you now
      But me and my 'true love'
      Will never meet again
