"This is Not a Love Song" as written by and Levene Lydon....
This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song

Happy to have, not to have not
Big business is very wise
I'm crossing over into
E-enter-prize

Love song
Love song
Love song
Love song

I'm going over to the other side
I'm happy to have not to have not
Big business is very wise
I'm inside free enterprise

I'm adaptable
I'm adaptable

I'm adaptable and I like my new role
I'm getting better and better
And I have a new goal
I'm changing my ways where money applies

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song

Now are you ready to grab the cradle
That tunnel vision-not television
Behind the curtain-out of the cupboard
YOu take the first train-into the big world
Now will I find you-now will you be there

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song

    General Commentwas a response to record company execs want ing a hit, telling Mr. Lydon to write a love song, so he came back with this is NOT a love song to take the piss out of them, and ironically it was a hit

    General CommentI think that the live version of this song is better, performed by the sex pistols if i am not wrong.. By the way, there is a nice (more than just nice actually) movie which has the same name as this song, not suprisingly because all it has as its soundtrack is that song.. I suggest you watch that movie.

    General CommentGreat song and great title because I am so sick of every song seeming to be about love or relationships and just something pan to do with a man or a woman. This is definitively something John Lydon would have written. I also too think the live version is better.
