"Fodderstompf" as written by Keith Levene, John Wardle, John Lydon and James Walker....
Be bland
Beano
Be boring
Be really, really, y'know nothing a void, zilch, zero, nought, nothing, vacuum

Be in love
We wanted to be loved
We wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

Oh love
Love makes the world go round
We only wanted to finish the album with the minimum amount of effort
Which we are now doing very successfully

We only wanted to be loved
We only
Love
We wanted to be accepted by society
We wanted to be accepted
We wanted to be accepted as people

We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
Love
We wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

I'm just gonna go get a cigarette do you want one
Yes please
won't be a second
Okay

Be bland
Be dull
Be boring
Be in love

Only wanted to be loved
Only wanted to be loved
Only wanted to be loved
Only wanted to be loved
Love

Every time I walk up and down the street
I look at people and I think why don't you love me
Why don't you love me
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

Oh thank you wrong end
I'm in love
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

We need love
We need love like the water
Like the air we breathe, luvy
You know what I mean, like where I cum from
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

Only love can satisfy us
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

No one understands us
Nobody cares
No one loves us
Love makes the world go round
Oh, it does that as well without any mistake whatsoever
Love does make the world go round

I don't know what these punk rockers get up to
Y'know these punk rockers with their spitting and their antics
Don't they realize that love makes the world go round
Realize that love makes the world go round
Don't they realize that love makes the world go round
Round

We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

Fucking hell thirsty work in'it being famous
This traffic's dragging on
Do you think it'll ever end

What did you think of that engineer looking through the glass window
I think he looks rather suspicious
He looks very suspicious to me
Very dubious to me with that long hair
They don't realize that love makes the world go round

We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

I will show the frustration with our society by picking up that fire extinguisher and spraying it into the mic.
We only wanted to be loved
We only wanted to be loved

It's blue
Oh no

We only wanted to be loved
Go on John tickle the old Joanna
We only wanted to be loved
Loved, loved

    General CommentIt's a jam session. Like the "we only wanted to finish the album with the minimum amount of effort, which we are now doing very suc-cess-fully" line implies - they needed one more longish song to complete the album and give it the required running time, so they just started screwing around in the studio late one evening and came up with this.

    Much to John Lydon and the rest of the bands' amusment, it became a big hit in the discos of America...
