Morrissey Lyrics

The First of the Gang To Die

Transcribed from listening to live appearance on Craig Kilborn, not from any official source but they should be right as lyrics are very clear

First of the Gang to Die mp3

You have never been in love
Until you’ve seen the stars
Reflect in the resevoir
And you have never been in love
Until you’ve seen the dawn rise
Behind the home for the blind

We are pretty petty thieves
And you’re standing on our streets
Where Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die
Oh my
Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die

Oh my

You have never been in love
Until you’ve seen sunlight thrown
Over smashed human bone

We are the pretty petty thieves
And you’re standing on our streets
Where Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time
The first of the gang to die
Such a silly boy

Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And a bullet in his gullet
The first lost lad to go
Under the sod

And he stole from the rich and the poor
And the not very rich and the very poor
And he stole all hearts away
He stole all hearts away
He stole all hearts away
A-hay a-hay a-hay
Way a-hay
He stole all hearts away
A-way
He stole all hearts away
A-hay a-hay a-hay
Way a-hay
He stole all hearts away
A-way
He stole all hearts away
A-hay a-hay a-hay
Way a-hay
He stole all hearts away
A-way
