The Clash, “London calling”

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 / Except for the ring of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in / Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin / Engines stop running, but I have no fear / Cause London is drowning and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone / Forget it brother, you can go it alone / London calling to the zombies of death / Quit holding out and draw another breath / London calling and I don’t want to shout / But while we were talking I saw you noddin’ 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 is 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 is 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…
