The Smiths, Paint a Vulgar Picture

At the record company meeting / On their hands – a dead star
And oh, the plans they weave / And oh, the sickening greed 
 

At the record company party / On their hands – a dead star
The sycophantic slags all say: “I knew him first, and I knew him well”
 

Re-issue ! Re-package ! Re-package ! / Re-evaluate the songs
Double-pack with a photograph / Extra Track (and a tacky badge) 
 

A-list, playlist / “Please them , please them!”
“Please them!” / (sadly, THIS was your life) 
 

But you could have said no / If you’d wanted to
You could have said no  / If you’d wanted to…

 

RIP Amy.
