Annotationen

Der Songtitel wurde zu einem geflügelten Wort, das den exzessiven Lebensstil von Rockmusikern bezeichnet. Ironischerweise ist der Song eine Anweisung zum alternativen Leben: Tue nichts, was du nicht gerne tust! Passe dich nicht an den Durchschnitt an! Lass dich nicht von Sonderangeboten verführen, gönne dir stattdessen etwas Exklusives!
Wurde unter dem Namen Ian Dury veröffentlicht. Von den Blockheads sind nur Gitarrist Chas Jankel und Saxofonist Davey Payne auf der Aufnahme zu hören. Spätere Singles und LPs kamen unter dem Namen Ian Dury And The Blockheads heraus.

Lyrics

Sex and drugs and rock and roll Is all my brain and body need Sex and drugs and rock and roll Are very good indeed Keep your silly ways or throw them out the window The wisdom of your ways, I've been there and I know Lots of other ways, what a jolly bad show If all you ever do is business you don't like Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Is very good indeed Every bit of clothing ought to make you pretty You can cut the clothing, grey is such a pity I should wear the clothing of Mr. Walter Mitty See my tailor, he's called Simon, I know it's going to fit Here's a little piece of advice, you're quite welcome, it is free Don't do nothing that is cut price, you know what that'll make you be They will try their tricky device, trap you with the ordinary Get your teeth into a small slice, the cake of liberty Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex and drugs and rock and roll Sex, drugs, rock, roll Sex, drugs, rock, roll
