Lyrics

Is it wrong to want to live on your own? No, it's not wrong, but I must know How can someone so young Sing words so sad?

Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear And don't go home tonight Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you The one that you love and who loves you

Oh Is it wrong not to always be glad No, it's not wrong, but I must add How can someone so young Sing words so sad

Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear And don't go home tonight Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you The one that you love and who loves you

Take my hand and off we stride Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la You're a girl and I'm a boy La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la la, la, la, la, la

Take my hand and off we stride Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la I'm a girl and you're a boy La, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la

Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow La, la, la, la, la, la Throw your homework onto the fire

Come out and find the one that you love Come out and find the one you love

"Sheila Take a Bow" is a song by the English rock band the Smiths. Released in April 1987, it reached No. 10 in the UK Singles Chart, the joint highest chart placing of any single by the Smiths during the band's lifetime. It was one of the band's many "between album" singles, and not included on any of the studio albums. It was, however, featured on Louder Than Bombs. The single's two B-sides, Peel Session versions of "Is It Really So Strange?" and "Sweet and Tender Hooligan", are also featured on Louder Than Bombs.
