Sex Pistols Great Rock `n` Roll Swindle Lyrics    [  Edit Lyrics  ]
People said we couldn`t play
The called us foul-mothed yobs
But the only notes that really count
Are the ones that come in wads

They all drowned when the air turned blue
`Cos we didn`t give a toss
Filthy lucre, ain`t nothing new
But we all get cash from the chaos

The time is right to do it now
The greatest rock`n`roll swindle
The time is right to do it now

E.M.I. said you`re 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 ain`t bad for two weeks work
And 75,000 pounds

The time is right to do it now
The greatest rock`n`roll swindle
The time is right to do it now

The time is right to do it now
The greatest rock`n`roll swindle
The time is right to do it now

I just wanna play with my hand
Are you good enough for me
Hiya boys I`m the choosen 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

The time is right to do it now
The greatest rock`n`roll swindle
The time is right to do it now

The time is right for Nickey`s Special
The greatest rock`n`roll star
The time is right for me, now!
