State control and rock and roll
Are run by clever men
What they sell is selling very well
And the price is up again
State control and rock and roll
Are run by clever men
What you know is what they show
So it all goes round again

State control and rock and roll
Are run by clever men
Politics are ultra chic
And wars are in again
State control and rock and roll
Are run by clever men
Revolution's this year's thing
We're on the streets again - and again

State control and rock and roll
Are run by clever men
It's all good for business
They're in the charts again - and again
State control and rock and roll
Are run by clever men
They build you up
And they break you down
Then you're on the dole again
And again

You know it's true but what can you do
Look for a gap and get out of the trap
It's a vicious circle try and break loose
Break out of the trap
Get out of the noose
You know it's true but what can you do
Cos what you're feeling
Is a human being
Not this year's thing or last year's thing
This year's thing or next year's thing...
State control and rock and roll
Are run by clever men
It's all good for business!

State control and rock and roll
Are run by clever men
And anarchy is this year's thing...
