COMMERCIAL SUICIDE MAN I made you a formal offer I said I’ll do what I can I gave you this use of an office So you can establish your brand 
And to save you from getting the brush off 
I put you on the road in a van But to make people buy your records boy? I don’t know who you think I am - What we gonna do about it Robert? - What we gonna do about it Robert? - What we gonna do about it Robert? Well I might rigmarole for the babies And I might ‘Coal Not Dole’ now and then But I won’t score a goal with the ladies And I won’t pigeonhole with the men 

Ah, but if we make it come across natural The press will call it a scam To make it sell for are we not A pair of also-rans?

 - What we gonna do about it Victor? - What is the gnu about it Victor? - Can you see the clue within the picture?

 Once upon a time ‘twas a pleasure Could never be a thing that’d hurt But as the days roll by and more people die 
It gets a little rough in the dirt Well my career is on an upward curve now Decades overdue So why do I struggle to find a way To separate the blues from you?

 - What’s there to misconstrue about it Robert? 
- What we gonna do about it Robert? - You gotta love what you’re doing Love, love, love - You gotta love what you’re doing Love what you doing or you don’t. Lyrics by Vic Godard Edited, tarted up and added to by Robert Lloyd

Together, they tried to set alight The Jam's Union Jack backdrop during the White Riot Tour . . . while The Jam was still on stage.

Now, forty years after jamming with The Slits on "No More Rock & Roll For You", the two have reunited to make this surly & kick-ass 7" EP.
