I DON'T OWE YOU ANYTHING (SHAW)

Bought on stolen wine
A nod was the first step
You knew very well
What was coming next

Bought on stolen wine
A nod was the first step
You knew very well
What was coming next

Did I really walk all this way
Just to hear you say :
"I don't want to go out tonight" ?
"Oh, I don't want to go out tonight"

But you will
For you must

I don't owe you anything at all
But you owe me something
So repay me now

You should never go to them
Let them come to you
Just like I do
Just like I do

You should not go to them
Let them come to you
Just like I do, oh
Just like I do

Did I really walk all this way
Just to hear you say :
"I don't want to go out tonight" ?
"No I don't want to go out tonight"

But you will
For you must

I don't owe you anything at all
But you owe me something
Repay me now

Too freely on your lips
Words prematurely sad
Oh, but I know what will make you smile tonight

Life is never kind
Life is never kind
Oh, but I know what will make you smile tonight


Starting with an added guitar intro, this lazily charming version of the album track features Sandie Shaw on vocals. Sandie Shaw, a 60's singer, unfortunately most famous for the dire Eurovision entry "Puppet On A String", was one of Morrissey's heroes of his childhood.
This song is notable for lacking any Morrissey vocal.
This song was recorded at the same sessions that produced the hit Shaw version of Hand In Glove.
