Lyrics

No One Is Innocent

God save the sex pistols 
They're a bunch of wholesome blokes
They just like wearing filthy clothes and swapping filthy jokes

God save television 
Keep the programmes pure
God save William Grundy from falling in manure

Ronnie Biggs was doing time until he done a bunk
Now he says he's seen the light and he sold his soul to punk

God save Martin Boorman 
And nazis on the run
They wasn't being wicked God that was their idea of fun

God save Myra Hindley 
God save Ian Brady
Even though he's horrible and she ain't what you call a lady

Ronnie Biggs was doing time until he done a bunk
Now he says he's seen the light and he sold his soul to punk
Ronnie Biggs was doing time until he done a bunk
Now he says he's seen the light and he sold his soul to punk

God save politicians 
God save our friends the pigs
God save Idi Amin and god save Ronald Biggs

God save all us sinners 
God save your blackest sheep
God save the Good Samaritan and God save the worthless creep
