Sex Pistols The 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 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

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

Rock n roll swindle
Rock n roll swindle (repeat til end)
