Both tracks were released on Morrissey Central this week under the title “Lost Demo,” with full lyrics shared for both songs.
On ‘Once Upon A Woman’s Body’, he sings: “Once upon a time there was a woman’s body, you softened up too early and she said ‘it’s okay, I’m going to find someone who … isn’t you'”.
‘If Saturday Ever Comes’, meanwhile, sees him reflect on death as he sings: “There is a bell tolling the death knell and an urn awaiting your turn / there is a drunken boneyard to overflow, don’t worry!”
It is not known at what point in Morrissey’s solo career the two new demos were taken.
Listen to both songs, uploaded to YouTube by Morrissey’s nephew Sam Etsy Rayner, below:
Meanwhile, earlier this month, Morrissey appeared to rank all of his solo and Smiths albums from best to worst on his website.
At the top of the list, which lists all of the singer’s 30 studio and live records, both solo and with the Manchester band, is his 2014 solo LP “World Peace Is Not Your Business.”
At number two is “Ringleader of the Tormentors” from 2006, while at number three is “You Are The Quarry”.
The highest-ranked Smiths album on the list is the 1984 compilation album “Louder Than Bombs”, with the group’s fourth and final studio album “Strangeways, Here We Come” (1987) a place below.
Earlier this year, Morrissey shared details of a new studio album titled “Bonfire Of Teenagers,” which he called “best album of my life” when it was announced.
