PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, LET ME GET WHAT I WANT

Good times for a change
See, the luck I've had
Can make a good man
Turn bad

So please please please
Let me, let me, let me
Let me get what I want
This time

Haven't had a dream in a long time
See, the life I've had
Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time
Lord knows, it would be the first time


Primary source material for Smiths copyists Gene, this acoustic guitar-led little ditty is a suitable end to a fine compilation. Stupidly long title, stupidly short song.
The score of this song, as released by Warner Bros, features an intro that is not on the released version, which leads to speculation that an intro was recorded, then edited out. Hmm.
