Be bland
Be dull
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 suc-cess-fully

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 and get a cigarette do you want one
Yes please
Wont 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 lovedddd

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 realise that love makes the world go roooond
Realise that love makes the world go roooond
Don’t they realise that love, that love, that love makes the world go
roooond
roooond

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 track is dragging on
Do you think it’ll ever end

One more time?
What did you think of the engineer looking through that glass window?
I think he's rather suspicious
He looks very suspicious to me
Very dubious guy with that long haired hippy roadie next to him
I think these long haired chaps...
I don't really think much of them, but don't you like their jokes?
They don’t realise 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 our frustration at society by picking up that fire extinguisher over there and spraying it at the mic

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

It’s blue
Oh no
Oh yes!

We only wanted to be loved

Go on John tickle the old Joanna

We only wanted to be loved
Loved, loved

    General CommentIt's basically poking fun at their record company and the genre of disco while emulating the latter It was drawn out so absurdly long to fill their album time quota with zero effort. On the whole pretty funny, really.

    Why has no-one bothered to comment on this band?
