Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle Songtext

People said we couldn′t play
The 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
But 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

EMI said you′re out of hand
And they gave us the boot
But they couldn′t sack us, just like that
They're 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 (fuck it) do it now
The greatest rock'n′roll swindle
The time is right to do it now

The time is right to (fuck it) 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 ya 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!


I′d kill...
Elvis Presley died in 1959
Chuck Berry is a (?) fucker
Ian Dury cockney fraud
Mick Jagger white nigger
Bob Dylan with a parking ticket stuck to his arsehole
David Bowie is blessed curse
Rod Stewart's got a luggage label tied to his tonsils
Elton John: hair transplant
Sid Vicious, a rock'n′roll cliche
Paul Cook (?)
Rock and roll
Johnny Rotten his days are even numbered (?)

Rock n roll swindle
Rock n roll swindle (repeat til end)
Rock ′N' Roll Swindle... Swindle? It′s a Swindle!
