  • I get violent when I'm fucked up
    I get silent when I'm drugged up
    Want excitement, don't get none, I go wild

    I don't know what can be done about it
    If you play the game you get nothing out of it
    Find out for yourself try bein' a goody-goody

    You better cheat-cheat
    No reason to play fair
    Cheat-cheat or don't get anywhere
    Cheat-cheat if you can't win

    Nobody knows what they are doing
    It's beyond your control, an' Friday night's a ruin
    If you want to survive you better learn how to lie

    You better cheat-cheat
    No reason to play fair
    Cheat-cheat or don't get anywhere
    Cheat-cheat if you can't win

    Don't use the rules
    They're not for you, they're for the fools
    And you're a fool if you don't know that
    So use the rules, you stupid fool Writer/s: JOE STRUMMER, MICK JONES, PAUL SIMONON, TOPPER HEADON
