We're So Pretty, Oh So Pretty

Sex Pistols
"Pretty Vacant"
Listen | Buy

NOTES: I remember when I was a teenager that all of the music I listened to (Bauhaus, Black Flag, the Sex Pistols) seemed so subversive. I used to walk around singing the Dead Kennedys' "Holiday In Cambodia" thinking I was really cool. My friends and I used to sing the chorus of this song - "We're so pretty, oh so pretty - we're vacant!" without a trace of irony. God we were dumb.

Incidentally, I'm looking for a copy of Wire's "12XU" if anyone has it.

There's no point in asking, you'll get no reply
Oh just remember I don't decide
I got no reason it's all too much
You'll always find us
Out to lunch

Oh we're so pretty, oh so pretty
We're vacant

Don't ask us to attend. 'cause we're not all there
Oh don't pretend 'cause I don't care
I don't believe illusions, and too much is real
So stop your cheap comments
'Cause we know what we feel

Oh we're so pretty, oh so pretty
We're vacant

And we donít care

We're pretty - pretty vacant
