london calling – The Clash


London Calling

[Strummer /Jones]

London calling to the faraway towns

Now war is declared and battle come down

London calling to the underworld

Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls

London calling, now don’t look to us

Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust

London calling, see we ain’t got no swing

‘Cept for the reign of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun’s zooming in

Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin

Engines stop running but I have no fear’

Cause London is burning and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone

Forget it brother, you can go at it alone

London calling to the zombies of death

Quit holding out and draw another breath

London calling and I don’t wanna shout

But while we were talking I saw you nodding out

London calling, see we ain’t got no high

Except for that one with the yellowy eyes

The ice age is coming, the sun’s zooming in

Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin

A nuclear error but I have no fear’

Cause London is drowning and I, I live by the river

The ice age is coming, the sun’s zooming in

Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin

A nuclear error but I have no fear’

Cause London is drowning and I, I live by the river

Now get this, London calling, yes, I was there, too

And you know what they said? Well, some of it was true

London calling at the top of the dial

And after all this, won’t you give me a smile?

London Calling

I never felt so much alike
