Sex Pistols God Save the Queen (Symphony) Lyrics    [  Edit Lyrics  ]
My name is Malcolm McLaren I have brought you many things in my time But the most successful of all was an invention of mine they called "punk rock".

(Anarchy!! Anarchy!!)
Ahh...lemmie start from the beginning. Find four kids, make sure they hate each other, make sure they know the plan.

There was Steve Jones, 18 years of age. A brilliant cat burglar. I nominated him guitarist.

There was another fellow...Old Cook. 17 years of age. A phenomenal acrobat. Under one condition, he always had to provide the bait.

And if not for his green hair, I would have thought him something out of David Copperfield. I took the opportunity of confronting him. He pretended to think me an idiot. Pushed me aside. When I learned he was Irish, Steve saw his green teeth...We called him, Johnny Rotten.

Then there was Sid..Sidney. With a natural talent for working in the clubs. And every one of them ended up an unpredictable bloody mess. Bashing and jumping all about..He invented the Pogo. I called them The Sex Pistols.

With the lineup complete, we immediately set about to put our plan into effect. To swindle our way to the top of the rock n' roll industry. It was a plan, within two years was to bring us close to a million £'s.
