Morrissey – Human Being lyrics

Uno due tres

Well, if you don't like it
Go ahead, find yourself a saint
Go ahead now, try to find a boy
Who's gonna be all the things I ain't

What you need is a plastic doll
With a fresh coat of paint
Who's gonna sit through the madness
And always act so quaint, oh yeah, yeah, yeah

With your new friends
You're really making a scene
I've seen you bouncing around
From machine to machine

And you know they're never real
They're never what they seem
And you can try to generate some warmth
And you'll see just what I mean, oh yeah, yeah, yeah

And if I'm acting like a king
Well, that's 'cause I'm a human being
I want too many things
And that's 'cause I'm a human being

And if I've got to dream
I said well, I'm a human being
And if it gets to be obscene
Yeah, I'm a human being

And I just go around
With my head hung down
Just like a human being
And all those human beings
I can hold my head so high
Just like a human
I'm a riff raff human being

Won't you give me a little sip?
Why don't you try me on a drag of that cigarette
Why don't you try to give me something
That I'll never ever forget

But now don't you blow it all
On a million dollar bet
Because you're liable to lose it
On the best lovin' you've had yet, oh yeah, yeah, yeah

And if I'm acting like a king
Well that's 'cause I'm a human being
And if I want too many things
That's 'cause I'm a human being

And if I've got to dream
I said well, "I'm a human being"
And if it gets to be obscene
Yeah, I'm a human being

And I just go around
With my head hung down
Just like a human being
And all those human beings
I can hold my head so high
Just like a human
I'm a riff raff human being

In fact I'm talking about the human race
Trying to cover up the big disgrace, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, oh yeah

Well, I may think that this whole scene
Is too appalling for me
Or I may be the type who is just mad
About everything that I see

But I can't cover this with history
Or make it just what I want it to be
I'm blowing my change on the fan magazines
With all the Hollywood refugees, said, "Yeah, yeah, oh yeah

And if I'm acting like a king
That's 'cause I'm a human being
And if I want too many things
That's 'cause I'm a human being

And if I've got to dream
I said well, "I'm a human being"
And if it gets to be obscene
Yeah, yeah, I'm a human being
