Morrissey – Tony The Pony lyrics

Still drinking on the corner
Just don't say I didn't warn you
Always nagging big brother
He's only looking out for you

Tony the pony
Tony the pony

You're still standing on the corner
Just don't say I didn't warn you
Old and jealous big brother
You had your time and you spent it
Crying

Now, tony the pony
Tony the pony
So, that's what they call you now?
When you're free outside
So cold and hard and in control
And...
There's a free ride on
Tony the pony

Oh, why do you always wanna stop me
From doing the things in life that make me happy?
And when I'm outside with friends, laughing loudly
Why do you always wanna stop me?

Oh, I would never
I would never

But you will carry the can for anyone
The free ride on
Gullible tony

You're drunker quicker
And you're sicker even quicker
For something heavy is gonna fall on you
Oh...

And what do they call you now?
When you're free outside
So cold and hard and in control
And, oh... Been a lark
There's a free ride on
Fucked-up tony

I will never say I told you so
Or how I knew that something bad
Would happen to you
I don't wanna say I told you so
Oh, but tony, I told you so!!!
I told you so
