Who has seen the flick Sid & Nancy?

Remember this?

I need a job I need a job I need a GOOD JOB
I need a job I need a job that pays
I need a job I need a job I need a GOOD JOB
One that satisfies....
My artistic needs!

Whaddya think, Johnny?

F**k off!

My current theme song

"Career Opportunities" by The Clash:

They offered me the office, offered me the shop
They said I'd better take anything they'd got
Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

I hate the army an' I hate the R.A.F.
I don't wanna go fighting in the tropical heat
I hate the civil service rules
And I won't open letter bombs for you

Bus driver....ambulance man....ticket inspector
They're gonna have to introduce conscription
They're gonna have to take away my prescription
If they wanna get me making toys
If they wanna get me, well, I got no choice


Ain't never gonna knock

From the 1977 album The Clash, co-written by Joe Strummer and Mick Jones.

Rest in peace, Joe, and thank you so much for the tunes....
