Sex Pistols The Great Rock n Roll Swindle Lyrics

[Verse 1]
People said we couldn't play
They called us foul-mouthed yobs
But the only notes that really count
Are the ones that come in wads
They all drowned when the air turned blue
Cause we didn't give a toss
Filthy lucre, isn't nothing new
But we all get cash from the chaos

[Chorus]
The time is right to do it now
The greatest rock and roll swindle
The time is right to do it now

[Verse 2]
E.M.I. said you are out of hand
And they gave us the boot
But they couldn't sack us, just like that
Without giving us the loot
Thank you kindly A & M
They said we were out of bounds
But that isn't bad for two weeks work
And 75,000 pounds

[Chorus] [x2]

[Verse 3]
I just want to play with my band
Are you good enough for me
Hiya boys I'm the chosen one
Can't you fucking see
I'm a jealous god and I want everything
And I love you with a knife
I'll take you, if you're ready for me
And I'll give you my life

[Chorus]

[Outro]
The time is right for Nickey's Special
The greatest rock and roll star
The time is right for me now
I kill
Elvis Presley died in 1959
Chuck Berry you're a big ugly fucker
Ian Dury Cockney Fraud
Mick Jagger white nigga
Bob Dylan got a parking ticket stuck to his arsehole
David Bowie you are a bloody cunt
Malcolm Mc
Rod Stewart‘s got a luggage label tied to his tonsils
Elton John hair transplant
Sid Vicious Rock and Roll Cliché
Paul Cook bare bones
Johnny Rotten-ah his days are even numbered
Rock and roll swindle
Swindle
It's a swindle!
