The Worst Band In The World
by 10cc

Album: Sheet Music (1974)
  • It's one thing to know it but another to admit
    We're the worst band in the world
    But we don't give a

    If Garbo played guitar with Valentino on the drums
    Then we'd be nothing more than a bunch of darma bums
    So tune up, tune up

    Well we've never done a days work in our life
    And our records sell in zillions
    It irrigates my heart with greed
    To know that you adore me
    Up yours, up mine
    But up everybody's that takes time
    But we're working on it
    Working on it (Ooh)

    We never seen the van - leave it to the roadies
    Never met the roadies - leave them in the van
    All because of circumstances way beyond control
    We became the darlings of this thing called rock and roll, ooh

    Here I am a record on a jukebox
    A little piece of plastic with a hole, ooh
    Play me
    Buy me and you play me then my plastic turns to gold

    Here we are together on your hi-fi
    A little piece of plastic with a hole, oh
    Fade me, fade me, fade me, fade me Writer/s: GRAHAM GOULDMAN, LOL CREME
