mozzer monday - why don't you find out for yourself

In a 1994 interview with Q Magazine's Stuart Maconie asked Morrissey, "As a lyricist, are you peerless?"
Well, the obvious answer is yes, but as people read these lines they would hate me for saying so, particularly those people who make music and perhaps think they are peerless. But I say it with the maximum concern for the future of pop music and, let's face it, it doesn't really have one. Although I will go home tonight and play music very loudly and get very excited, I rarely hear lyrics sung by others which motivate me in any way. Even the people I quite like are quite silly, really, lyrically.
He's just being Mozzer.
