About the single[]

Steve Jones wrote and also performed vocals on the song, with John Taylor playing bass.

The verse is vocally-oriented, with sharp, punky palm-muted guitar and a tight rhythm giving way to loose strumming on the chorus. The guitar solo has a Sex Pistols feel with Chuck Berry-style double stops, that recall the 1970s "God Save The Queen" single.

Lyrics[]

I don't mind, I don't really mind
Take your time, take your precious time
You're so blind, you're severly blind
But never you mind, 'cause I just came to grind

You're a bitch, I'm a jerk
I don't think that we can work
You're a prat, I'm a prick
I don't think that we will stick
I'm a cat, you're a chick
I think you deserve one more lick

Come on down
Come on down
Come on down

Be yourself, please be yourself
You're so mean do you know what I mean?
You're unkind, you're so not my kind
I need time, I need time to unwind

You're a bitch, I'm a jerk
I don't think that we can work
You're a prat, I'm a prick
I don't think that we will stick
I'm a cat, you're a chick
I think you deserve one more lick

Come on down
Come on down
Come on down

I got the big e
From the queen bee
She don't love me, she don't want me
I'm so blind, I'm so fucking blind
She's blown away my mind, she's blown away my stupid mind

You're a bitch, I'm a jerk
I don't think that we can work
You're a prat, I'm a prick
I don't think that we will stick
You're a cunt, I'm a cock
Are you ready, ready to rock?

Come on down
Come on down
Come on down
