Cheat

This song is by The Clash and appears…

This song has been covered by Rancid under the title "Cheat".
I get violent when I'm fucked up
I get silent when I'm drugged up
Want excitement
Don't get none, I go wild

I don't know what can be done about
If you play the game and you get nothing out of it
Find out for yourself
Try being a goody-goody

You better cheat cheat, no reason to play fair
Cheat cheat, or don't get anywhere
Cheat cheat, if you can't win

Nobody knows what they are doing
Beyond your control, finding life's a ruin
If you want to survive, you better learn how to lie

You better cheat cheat, no reason to play fair
Cheat cheat, or don't get anywhere
Cheat cheat, if you can't win

Don't use the rules
They're not for you, they're for the fools
And you're a fool if you don't know that
So use the rules, you stupid fools

Written by:

Mick Jones and Joe Strummer
