​Barbarism Begins At Home

This song is by The Smiths and appears on the album Meat Is Murder (1985).

Unruly boys who will not grow up
Must be taken in hand
Unruly girls who will not settle down
They must be taken in hand

A crack on the head
Is what you get for not asking
And a crack on the head
Is what you get for asking

No ... a crack on the head
Is what you get for not asking
And a crack on the head
Is what you get for asking

A crack on the head
Is just what you get
WHY ? Because of who you are!
And a crack on the head
Is just what you get
WHY ? Because of what you are!
A crack on the head
Because of
Those things you said
Things you said
The things you did

Unruly boys
Who will not grow
Must be taken in hand
Unruly girls
Who will not grow
They must be taken in hand
