Rubber Ring Lyrics

by The Smiths

A sad fact widely known
The most impassionate song
To a lonely soul
Is so easily outgrown

But don't forget the songs
That made you smile
And the songs that made you cry

When you lay in awe
On the bedroom floor
And said
"Oh, oh, smother me Mother"

No, rubber ring, rubber ring
Rubber ring, rubber ring
Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring

No, rubber ring
Rubber ring, rubber ring

The passing of time
And all of its crimes
Is making me sad again

The passing of time
And all of its sickening crimes
Is making me sad again

But don't forget the songs
That made you cry
And the songs that saved your life

Yes, you're older now
And you're a clever swine
But they were the only ones
Who ever stood by you

The passing of time
Leaves empty lives
Waiting to be filled

The passing of time
Leaves empty lives
Waiting to be filled

I'm here with the cause
I'm holding the torch
In the corner of your room
Can you hear me ?

And when you're dancing and laughing
And finally living
Hear my voice in your head
And think of me kindly

No, rubber ring, rubber ring
Rubber ring, rubber ring
Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring

No, rubber ring
Rubber ring, rubber ring

Do you love me like you used to ?
Rubber ring, rubber ring
Rubber ring, rubber ring

You're clever
Everybody's clever nowadays
You're clever
Everybody's clever nowadays

You are sleeping
You do not want to believe
You are sleeping
You do not want to believe

You are sleeping
You do not want to believe
You are sleeping
