It is a modern day version of Rolf Harris's Two Little Boys, written to reflect the attitude of modern Britain or America:
(Verse 1 - Sung in a posh voice)
Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wrap of horse
Daily they scored each summer's day
Smack heads both of course
One little chav then had a mishap
Got nicked and went away
Wept for his gear and lived in fear
Until a new cellmate came
(Chorus 1 - Sung with an urban street voice)
Did yer fink I would leave you sweating
I've got horse up my arse for two
Let's shoot up 'ere, Jack now don't be snivelling
I 'ave also got blow and glue
When we grow up we'll both be dealerz
We'll have pit bulls and hoes for joy
And I wonder if we'll remember
When we woz two little boyz
(Verse 2 - posh voice)
Long years past, let out at last
Hoods up, they dealt away
Guns shot out, a gangland shoot out
Wounded and dying lay
Up goes a shout, a Hummer screeches out
Out from the local crew
Drives away, to where Joe lay
Then came a voice he knew
(Chorus 2 - urban voice)
I'm afraid I must leave you dying
Dare's no room in me whip for you
Stay down dare Joe, I hear the sirens
I must go or they'll bag me too
Did you say Joe I'm all a tremble, perhaps it's the siren's noize
But I think it's the drugs we did bruv, when we woz two little boys
(Chorus 3 - urban voice)
Anyway, enough of my lyrical genius, back to Moz. There would appear to have been no Superhero antics in book stores yesterday, although the incident from Sunday with the fainting old lady WAS apparently true, and has been reported on various internet sites. It would appear that Morrissey was on his own, browsing through the old photography section, when the woman lost her senses and fell to the floor. Our hero knelt down next to the woman, and offered to get her a glass of water or to call for help, but apparently she declined. Moz is also reported to have picked up the lady's stray belongings. She is alleged to have stroked his cheek as a way of thanks, and went on her way, not knowing who her saviour was, as did Moz (go on his way that is, he knows of course who he is!).
"THAT WAS MORRISSEY? OH SHIT, I SHOULD'VE ASKED FOR RADIO CITY TICKETS, THEY'RE LIKE FRIGGING GOLD DUST "
Yesterday, it was reported on Twitter that Morrissey visited 'Second Hand Rose Records', a record shop in Greenwich Village. It looks like a great shop, and I'm gutted that I didn't find it when I was in New York. It wasn't reported if a purchase was made.
SECOND HAND ROSE RECORDS - 48 EAST 12TH STREET - HOW DID I MISS IT?
The tweeter who reported the sighting in the resord shop was '@EmanuelleMiller', who stated, "Am pretty sure I just saw Morrissey and an unknown petite dark haired gal exit Second Hand Rose Records in Greenwich Village NYC. Sweeet!" Emanuelle later added, "I was behind them on the sidewalk as they were leaving the store. They got into a car that was waiting by the curb." So, who was the mystery woman? Could Moz have been out and about with True-To-You owner, Julia Riley?
IS THIS MORRISSEY & JULIA IN NEW YORK YESTERDAY?
I am slightly concerned that my reporting of Morrissey out and about in New York, is bordering on stalking. I started this blog (a year ago tomorrow by the way) as a way of showing my excitement at discovering MorrisseysWorld, but have I now gone too far? Is it time to stop this blog, or should I perhaps just write something when it is relevant to either MW or the Blue Rose Society? I DON'T want to be an internet stalker, and Morrissey shopping with a friend is a private affair, ISN'T IT? Maybe I should only write about such things in parody form. Please let me know your thoughts.
Morrissey has given two interviews by email in recent days (which reminds me, Our Mozzer HASN'T yet answered the rest of MY interview questions *coughs politely*), and there is some brilliantly witty Mozzisms. The first interview is with ThePheonix.com, and has the following brilliance:
ABOUT OTHERS: "It's not my business to make anyone else's life worse, although, God knows, I've tried."
ON ARTISTS: "At first you acknowledge that the artist's view is wider than your own, otherwise you would not be entranced by them. The second stage is normal despondency because they haven't actually noticed you on a personal level. The third stage is assassination. It all amounts to a particularly poor form of love." This surely is aimed at Morrissey's misguided 'fans' on Solow?
ON NEW DRUMMER ANTHONY BURULCICH: "Yes, he's good with his fists...and I don't just mean as a drummer. This helps when you're in the Morrissey Band because small kids tend to pick on you...with legitimate reason." Hahahahaha
ON BOSTON: "I have no interest in Boston's history. Just get me to a bar with an Internet jukebox." Is this a reference to The Twitterdilly Arms?
ALSO ON BOSTON: "Fifty years ago, I did a signing at the old Tower Records for the album Vauxhall and I. We were five blocks away from the store and already we were passing the queue. I couldn't believe it. I said, 'Those people are queueing for me?" I started crying. I expected 22 people at most." Rosy Mires tweeted to say that the mention of "22 people" could be 'a sign'. She pointed out that I had written about 22 followers on Day 70 of my blog. God knows how she remembered that, I had long since forgotten. Personally, I don't think it's 'a sign', I think it's a genuine coincidence, but tomorrow I shall be blogging more about signs, and I shall also be looking at that 'original 22', to see where they stand now on MorrisseysWorld.
THE 'ORIGINAL 22' FROM DAY 70 - WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM? FIND OUT TOMORROW
The other Morrissey interview to surface is with the Australian news.com.au. It's a really good interview, but this blog entry of mine has now gone on for far too long, so I shall go through it in detail tomorrow.
Moz Factor continues to go well in The Twitterdilly Arms, and it would appear that Heather Cat has discovered a future star, by the name of Erin Merle Wallace (@ErinMerle). Her versions of 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out' and 'Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself' are beautiful, but her version of Sparks 'I Married Myself' is even better. Watch next Tuesday's chart at 12.45pm on twitter with @UpThePier to see if Erin makes the big time.
Finally Esther, it has today been announced that the singer Andy Williams has died. I grew up listening to Williams because my mum was a huge fan. We used to always watch the Andy Williams Show, and I used to love the cookie monster. Andy Williams's song 'So Little Time' featured in The Blue Rose/ Twitterdilly Arms Top 10 just two weeks ago. The lyrics now seem so VERY apt for Andy.
*Goes off singing* So little time to let you know, how much I love you, so little time, to let you know how much I care, and though I try to make believe this love of ours will last forever, it's just my heart that I deceive, because I know, oh yes I know, this sad old world, when we are gone, will go on spinning, these very stars, when we are gone, will shine as bright, so hold me in your arms until tomorrow, for there's so little time, so little time, tonight.
ANDY WILLIAMS 1927-2012
