"Poptones" as written by John Lydon, Keith Levene and John Wardle....
Drive to the forest in a Japanese car
The smell of rubber on country tar
Hindsight done me no good
Standing naked in this back of the woods

The cassette played pop tones

I can't forget the impression you made
You left a hole in the back of my head
I don't like hiding in this foliage and peat
It's wet and I'm losing my body heat

The cassette played pop tones

This bleeding heart
Looking for bodies
Nearly injured my pride
Praise picnicking in the British countryside

Pop tones
