"Satellite" as written by Glen Matlock, Paul Thomas Cook, Steve (gb 1) Jones and John Lydon....
Suburban kid, ya got no name
Two ton(e) baby and ya got no brain
I bet you're only happy in suburbian dreams
But I'm only laughing cause you ain't in my scheme

Hey baby
I love you
I love you
I love you

I only ever listen when you're on the phone
From your safety where you sit at home
When I got nothin' better to do
Then there is always you
Cause you're good for my shoe

Hey baby
I love you
I love you
I love you

I'm in love
Yeah in love
Oh, can't you feel it?

No I don't like where you come from
It's just a satellite of London
And when you look me in the eye
Just remember that I wanna die

Hey baby
I love you
I love you
I love you

You're the name but you can't tell
Lookin' like you just came outta hell
How did ya figure that'd you'd any use?
All you're gonna get is my abuse

Hey baby
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

    General CommentI think this song is about a man [propably John] phoning his gf, that he wants not to cares about but still does anyway.

    Song MeaningAccording to the punk77.co.uk website the song is about Nipple Erector Shanne Bradley:

    "Shanne was an early fan of the Pistols and face on the punk scene round the Roxy etc. A one time beau of Johnny Rotten he wrote the song Satellite about her (tho whether that is a good thing or not is debatable)."
