​You've Got Everything Now

This song is by The Smiths and appears on the album The Smiths (1984) and on the compilation album Hatful of Hollow (1984).

As merry as the days were long
I was right and you were wrong
Back at the old grey school
I would win and you would lose
But you've got everything now
You've got everything now
And what a terrible mess I've made of my life
Oh what a mess I've made of my life

No, I've never had a job
Because I've never wanted one
I've seen you smile
But I never really heard you laugh

So who is rich and who is poor
I cannot say

You are your mother's only son
And you're a desperate one
But I don't want a lover
I just want to be seen
In the back of your car

A friendship sadly lost
Well, this is true and yet it's false
But did I ever tell you, by the way
I never did like your face
But you've got everything now
You've got everything now
And what a terrible mess I've made of my life
Oh what a mess I've made of my life

No, I've never had a job
Because I'm too shy
I've seen you smile
But I never really heard you laugh

So who is rich and who is poor
I cannot say

You are your mother's only son
And you're a desperate one
But I don't want a lover
I just want to be tied
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
To the back of your car
