London's Calling

www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfK-WX2pa8c

 

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 the 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 drowning

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 nodding out

 

London calling, see we ain't got no high

Except for that one with the yellowy eye

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

Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin

A nuclear era, but I have no fear

'Cause London is drowning

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 era, but I have no fear

'Cause London is drowning

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?

I never felt so much alike, alike, alike, alike

 

Songwriters: Joe Strummer / Mick Jones / Paul Simonon / Topper Headon
