The Ordinary Boys is a song interpreted by Morrissey, released on the album Viva Hate in 1988.

The Ordinary Boys lyrics

Ordinary boys, happy knowing nothing
Happy being no one but themselves
Ordinary girls, supermarket clothes
Who think it's very clever to be cruel to you?

For you were so different, you stood all alone
And you knew that it had to be so

Avoiding ordinary boys
Happy going nowhere, just around here In their rattling cars
Ordinary girls, never seeing further
Than the cold, small streets that trap them

But you were so different, you had to say "No"
When those empty fools tried to change you and claim you

For the lair of their ordinary world
Where they feel so lucky
So lucky, so lucky
With their lives laid out before them
They are lucky
So lucky, so lucky
So lucky, so
