The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle

Standard

The great rock ‘n’ roll swindle
Starring The Sex Pistols
Thrust into the limelight….and worshipped like gods
“The only notes we care about come in wads”
They weren’t the most talented band in history
They stuck 2 fingers up at authority
When Johnny Rotten sang “God Save The Queen”
They said these boys are sick and obscene
But they revolutionised the music scene
Malcolm mcClaren was no beginner
He knew he was on to a real winner
Sadly, Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen paid the ultimate price
The way their story ended wasn’t at all nice
But what about the great rock ‘n’ roll swindle
Those boys sure knew how to make a bundle
And ‘though they weren’t around that long
And you could hardly accuse them of writing classic songs
You’ve got to hand it to the audacious Sex Pistols
For they pulled off the scandalous, great rock ‘n’ roll swindle
