Action Is My Middle Name

  • This song finds Morrissey delivering typically witty lyrics about death: "I can't waste time anymore," he croons in his ringing baritone. "Everybody has a date with an undertaker. A date that they can not break." The former Smiths frontman first unveiled the track during Janice Long's BBC Radio 2 show on June 14, 2011 and performed it for the first time on TV during Late Show With David Letterman on January 8, 2013.
