The second single taken from Your Arsenal surely contains one of the laziest ever Morrissey lyrics:-
You're the one for me, fatty
You're the one I really, really love
And I will stay
Promise you'll say
If I'm in your way
All over Battersea
and some despair
Repeated umpteen times with the occasional Buddy Holly impressions(a-hey) thrown in for padding.
It preceeded the album by three weeks and had me a bit worried about how it was all going to turn out. As it was, Fatty was one of the poorest tracks on the LP and was soon a candidate for frequent use of the skip button on the CD player.
Sometimes disappointing singles get rescued by decent tracks on the b-side, but sadly these efforts are quite forgettable.

At least the cover was a cracker.....another Linder Sterling photo taken at a concert in Chicago in 1991.
But my opinions weren't shared by the general public....it was a single that climbed higher in the charts than any of those taken from Kill Uncle, hitting #19 in July 1992.
Having said that, looking at the great man doing so many interviews this week to promote his new LP, maybe all of us should sing it back to him at the forthcoming concerts........
