 +
 +Tonight they'​re closing up the world
 +N' sweeping smoke from cigarettes
 +And what is that funk multi-national
 +Anthem rocking from a thousand
 +King Kong cassette decks
 +Then a shyboy from Missouri
 +Boots blown off in a '60s war
 +Riding aluminium crutches
 +Now he knows the welfare kindness n'
 +Agent Orange color blindness
 +As we works from door to door
 +The violence in the carpets
 +The mirror of his wife
 +Drives the slum-bum dweller
 +To grind his hunting knife
 +In homesteads of cigar box-radios
 +Hive like bees
 +The body in the ice
 +Box has no date for freeeeeze
 +
 +In a car jam
 +
 +Selling is what selling sells
 +But only saints of the 7 avenues can sell
 +The hells
 +Fanning the drug afflicted leperizing acne
 +Once inisde the executive
 +He never leaves his home
 +Gorillas drag their victiims
 +Hyenas try to sue
 +Snakes find grass in concrete
 +There is no city zoo by
 +Ventilation units where towers
 +Meet the streets
 +The ragged stand in bags
 +Soaking heat up through their feet
 +
 +This was the donly kindness
 +And it was accidental too
 +
 +In a car jam
 +
 +Now shaking single engined planes
 +Traffik-king stereos from Cuba
 +Buzzed the holy zealot mass
 +
 +And drowned out Missa Luba (x2)
 +I thought I saw Lauren Bacall (x2)
 +I swear

 +Strangling through the night shades
 +
 +The thief of life
 +Moved onwards and outwards to love

 +In a one stop only motel

 +The killer of love
 +Caught the last late Niagara bus
 +
 +By chance or escaping from misery
 +Bu suddeness or in answer to pain
 +Smoking in the dark cinema
 +You could see the bad go down again
 +
 +And the clouds are high in Spanish mountains
 +And a Ford roars through the night full of rain.
 +
 +The killer'​s blood flows
 +But he loads his gun again

 +==== Cheapskates ====
 +
 +I have been a washer up
 +An' he has been a scrubber up
 +An' I seen him a picking up
 +Dog ends in the rain
 +An' he has never read a book
 +Though I told him to take a look
 +He lifted his poolhall cue
 +For another game
 +But it ain't no modern miracle
 +That we found the golden rule
 +What you can't buy you gotta steal
 +An' what you say can't steal you better leave
 +
 +I don't like to hang about
 +In this lonely room
 +'Cos london is for going out
 +And trying to hear a tune
 +But people come pouncing up to me
 +And say what are you doing here
 +You're supposed to be a star
 +Not a cheapskate bleeding queer
 +
 +Like a load of rats from a sinking ship
 +You slag us down to save your hip
 +But you don't give me the benfit
 +Of your doubt
 +'Cos I'll bite it off and spit it out
 +
 +We're cheapskates anything'​ll do
 +We're cheapskates what are we supposed to do?
 +An' we can rock
 +Hey hey let's roll
 +An' we can walk
 +An' do the stroll
 +
 +Just because we're in a group
 +You think we're stinking rich
 +'N we all got model girls
 +Shedding every stitch
 +'N You think the cocaine'​s flowing
 +Like a river up our noses
 +'N every sea will part for us
 +Like the red one did for Moses
 +
 +Well I hope you make it one day
 +Just like you always said you would some day
 +And I'll get out my money and make a bet
 +That I'll be seein' you down the launderette

 +==== All the Young Punks ====
 +
 +Hanging about down the market street
 +
 +I spent a lot of time on my feet
 +When I saw some passing yabbos
 +We did chance to speak
 +
 +I knew how to sing
 +y' know an
 +They knew how to pose
 +An' one of them had a Les Paul
 +Heart attack machine
 +
 +All the young punks
 +Laugh your life
 +Cos there ain't much to cry for
 +All the young cunts
 +Live it now
 +Cos there ain't much to die for
 +
 +Everybody wants to bum
 +A ride on the rock '​n'​ roller coaster
 +And we went out
 +Got our name in small print on the poster
 +Of course we got a manger
 +Though he ain't the mafia
 +A contract is a contract
 +When they get 'em out on yer
 +
 +You gotta drag yourself to work
 +Drag yourself to sleep
 +You're dead from the neck up
 +By the middle of the week
 +
 +Face front you got the future shining
 +Like a piece of gold
 +But I swear as we get closer
 +It look more like a lump of coal
 +But it's better than some factory
 +Now that's no place to waste your youth
 +I worked there for a week once
 +I luckily got the boot
 +

 +London Calling
 +
 +London calling to the faraway towns
 +Now that war is declared-and battle come down
 +London calling to the underworld
 +Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
 +London calling, now don't look at us
 +All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
 +London calling, see we ain't got no swing
 +'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing
 +
 +The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
 +Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
 +A nuclear error, but I have no fear
 +London is drowning-and I live by the river
 +
 +London calling to the imitation zone
 +Forget it, brother, an' go it alone
 +London calling upon the zombies of death
 +Quit holding out-and draw another breath
 +London calling-and I don't wanna shout
 +But when we were talking-I saw you nodding out
 +London calling, see we ain't got no highs
 +Except for that one with the yellowy eyes
 +
 +The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
 +Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
 +A nuclear error, but I have no fear
 +London is drowning-and I live by the river
 +
 +Now get this
 +London calling, yeah, I was there, too
 +An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
 +London calling at the top of the dial
 +After all this, won't you give me a smile?
 +
 +I never felt so much a' like

 +Oh, please, leave the vendanna open
 +Fredrico Lorca is dead and gone
 +Bullet holes in the cemetery walls
 +The black cars of the Guardia Civil
 +Spanish bombs on the Costa Rica
 +I'm flying in a DC 10 tonight
 +
 +Spanish bombs, yo tequierro y finito
 +Yote querda, oh mi corazon
 +Spanish bombs, yo te quierro y finito
 +Yo te querda, oh mi corazon
 +
 +Spanish weeks in my disco casino
 +The freedom fighters died upon the hill
 +They sang the red flag
 +They wore the black one
 +But after they died it was Mockingbird Hill
 +Back home the buses went up in flashes
 +The Irish tomb was drenched in blood
 +Spanish bombs shatter the hotels
 +My senorita'​s rose was nipped in the bud
 +
 +Spanish bombs, yo tequierro y finito
 +Yote querda, oh mi corazon
 +Spanish bombs, yo te quierro y finito

 +The hillsides ring with "Free the people"​
 +Or can I hear the echo from the days of '39?
 +With trenches full of poets
 +The ragged army, fixin' bayonets to fight the other line
 +Spanish bombs rock the province
 +I'm hearing music from another time
 +Spanish bombs on the Costa Brava
 +I'm flying in on a DC 10 tonight
 +Spanish songs in Andalucia, Mandolina, oh mi corazon
 +Spanish songs in Granada, oh mi corazon

 +Say, where did I see this guy?
 +In Red River?
 +Or a place in the sun?
 +Maybe the Misfits?
 +Or From Here to Eternity?
 +
 +Everybody say, "Is he all right?"​
 +And everybody say, "​What'​s he like?"
 +Everybody say, "He sure look funny."​
 +That'​s...Montgomery Clift, honey!

 +New York, New York, New York, 42nd Street

 +Monty Clift is recognized at dawn
 +He ain't got no shoes and his clothes are torn
 +
 +I see a car smashed at night
 +Cut the applause and dim the light
 +Monty'​s face is broken on a wheel
 +Is he alive? Can he still feel?
 +
 +Nembutol numbs it all
 +But I prefer alcohol
 +
 +He said go out and get me my old movie stills

 +Lost in the Supermarket
 +
 +
 +I'm all lost in the supermarket
 +I can no longer shop happily
 +I came in her for that special offer
 +A guaranteed personality
 +
 +I wasn't born so much as I fell out
 +Nobody seemed to notice me
 +We had a hedge back home in the suburbs
 +Over which I never could see
 +
 +I heard the people who lived on the ceiling
 +Scream and fight most scarily
 +Hearing that noise was my first ever feeling
 +That's how it's been all around me
 +
 +I'm all lost in the supermarket
 +I can no longer shop happily
 +I came in her for that special offer
 +A guaranteed personality
 +
 +I'm all tuned in, I see all the programmes
 +I save coupons from packets of tea
 +I've got my giant hit discoteque album
 +I empty a bottle and I feel a bit free
 +
 +The kids in the halls and the pipes in the walls
 +Make me noises for company
 +Long distance callers make long distance calls
 +And the silence makes me lonely
 +
 +I'm all lost in the supermarket
 +I can no longer shop happily
 +I came in her for that special offer
 +A guaranteed personality

 +What are we gonna do now?
 +Taking off his turban, they said, is this man a Jew?
 +'Cause they'​re working for the clampdown
 +They put up a poster saying we earn more than you!

 +Let fury have the hour, anger can be power
 +D'you know that you can use it?

 +The voices in your head are calling
 +Stop wasting your time, there'​s nothing coming
 +Only a fool would think someone could save you
 +The men at the factory are old and cunning
 +You don't owe nothing, so boy get runnin'​
 +It's the best years of your life they want to steal
 +
 +You grow up and you calm down
 +You're working for the clampdown
 +You start wearing the blue and brown
 +You're working for the clampdown
 +So you got someone to boss around
 +It makes you feel big now
 +You drift until you brutalize
 +You made your first kill now
 +
 +In these days of evil presidentes

 +But they told no one where they had begun-four horsemen

 +And all the instant promises of immortality
 +Buyt they bit the dust screamin'​ insanity!-four horsemen

 +One was over the edge, one was over the cliff

 +
 +But you!
 +You're not searching, are you now?

 +Have nothing to say on judgment day?
 +
 +I've been beat up, I've been thrown
 +Out but I'm not down, I'm not down
 +I've been shown up, but I've grown up
 +And I'm not down, I'm not down
 +
 +On my own I faced a gang of jeering in strange streets
 +When my nerves were pumping and I
 +Fought my fear in, I did not run
 +I was not done

 +When we were close
 +I'll remember these things the most
 +I see all my dreams come tumbling down
 +I won't be happy without you around
 +
 +So all alone I keep the wolves at bay
 +There is only one thing that I can say
 +
 +Did you stand by me
 +No, not at all
 +Did you stand by me
 +No way
 +
 +You must explain why this must be
 +Did you lie when you spoke to me
 +
 +Did you stand by me
 +No, not at all
 +
 +Now I got a job
 +But it don't pay
 +I need new clothes
 +I need somewhere to stay
 +But without all these things I can do
 +But without your love I won't make it through
 +
 +But you don't understand my point of view
 +I suppose there'​s nothing I can do
 +
 +Did you stand by me
 +No, not at all
 +Did you stand by me
 +No way
 +
 +You must explain why this must be
 +Did you lie when you spoke to me?
 +
 +Did you stand by me
 +Did you stand by me
 +No, not at all
 +Did you stand by me
 +No way
 +Did you stand by me
 +No, not at all
 +Did you stand by me
 +No way

 +They cried the tears, they shed the fears,
 +Up and down the land,
 +They stole guitars or used guitars
 +- So the tape would understand,
 +Without even the slightest hope of a 1000 sales
 +Just as if, as if there was, a hitsville in U.K.,
 +I know the boy was all alone, til the hitsville hit U.K.

 +Junco Partner
 +
 +Down the road came a Junco Partner
 +For he was loaded as can be
 +He was knocked out, knocked out loaded
 +He was a'​wobblin'​ all over the street
 +
 +Singing 6 months ain't no sentence
 +And one year ain't no time
 +I was born in Angola
 +Serving 14 to 99
 +
 +Well I wish I had me $1 million dollars
 +Oh one million to call my own
 +I would raise meat and say, "grow for me baby"
 +I would raise me a tobacco farm
 +
 +Well I wish I would have me a great deal of money
 +Yeah and mighty good things all over town
 +Now I ain't got no more money
 +All of my good friends are putting me down
 +
 +So now I gotta pawn my rifle and pistol
 +Yeah I'm gonna pawn my watch and chain
 +I would have pawned my seat Gabriella
 +But the smart girl she wouldn'​t sign her name

 +Ivan Meets G.I. Joe
 +
 +So you're on the floor, at 54
 +Think you can last - at the Palace
 +Does your body go to the to and fro?
 +But tonight'​s the night - or didn't you know
 +That Ivan meets G.I. Joe
 +
 +He tried his tricks- that Ruskie bear
 +The United Nations said it's all fair
 +He did the radiation - the chemical plague
 +But he could not win - with a cossack spin
 +
 +The Vostok Bomb - the Stalin strike
 +He tried every move - he tried to hitch hike
 +He drilled a hole - like a Russian star
 +He made every move in his repertoire
 +
 +When Ivan meet G.I. Joe
 +
 +Now it was G.I. Joe's turn to blow
 +He turned it on - cool and slow
 +He tried a payphone call to the Pentagon
 +A radar scan - a leviathan
 +
 +He wiped the Earth - clean as a plate
 +What does it take to make a Ruskie break?
 +But the crowd are bored and off they go
 +Over the road to watch China blow!
 +
 +When Ivan meets G.I. Joe
 +
 +
 +
 +Leader
 +
 +Atom secrets, secret leaflet
 +Have the boys found the leak yet?
 +The molehill sets the wheel in motion
 +His downfall picks up locomotion
 +
 +The people must have something good to read on a Sunday
 +
 +The leader'​s wife takes a government car
 +In the dark to meet her minister
 +But the leader never leaves his door ajar
 +As he swings his whip from the Boer War
 +
 +He wore a leather mask for his dinner guests
 +Totally nude and with deep respect
 +Proposed a toast to the votes he gets
 +The feeling of power and the thought of sex!
 +
 +Now the girl let the fat man touch her
 +Vodka fumes and the feel of a vulture
 +The driver waited in the embassy car
 +The fat man's trap was set for capture
 +So the girl let the thin man touch her
 +Mixing questions, drunken laughter
 +The ministry car was waiting there
 +A minister knows his own affair
 +
 +The people must have something good to read on a Sunday
 +
 +
 +
 +Something About England
 +
 +They say immigrants steal the hubcaps
 +Of the respected gentlemen
 +They say it would be wine an' roses
 +If England were for Englishmen again
 +
 +Well I saw a dirty overcoat
 +At the foot of the pillar of the road
 +Propped inside was an old man
 +Whom time would not erode
 +When the night was snapped by sirens
 +Those blue lights circled fast
 +The dancehall called for an' ambulance
 +The bars all closed up fast
 +
 +My silence gazing at the ceiling
 +While roaming the single room
 +I thought the old man could help me
 +If he could explain the gloom
 +You really think it's all new
 +You really think about it too
 +The old man scoffed as he spoke to me
 +I'll tell you a thing or two
 +
 +I missed the fourteen-eighteen war
 +But not the sorrow afterwards
 +With my father dead and my mother ran off
 +My brothers took the pay of hoods
 +The twenties turned the north was dead
 +The hunger strike came marching south
 +At the garden party not a word was said
 +The ladies lifted cake to their mouths
 +
 +The next war began and my ship sailed
 +With battle orders writ in bed
 +In five long years of bullets and shells
 +We left tem million dead
 +The few returned to old Piccadily
 +We limped around Leicster Square
 +The world was busy rebuilding itself
 +The architects could not care
 +
 +But how could we know when I was young
 +All the canges that were to come?
 +All the photos in the wallets on the battlefield
 +And now the terror of the scientific sun
 +There was masters an' servants an' servants an' dogs
 +They taught you how to touch your cap
 +But through strikes an' famine an' war an' peace
 +England never closed this gap
 +
 +So leave me now the moon is up
 +But remember all the tales I tell
 +The memories that you have dredged up
 +Are on letters forwarded from hell
 +
 +The streets were by now deserted
 +The gangs had trudged off home
 +The lights clicked off in the bedsits
 +An' old England was all alone
 +
 +
 +
 +Rebel Waltz
 +
 +I slept and I dreamed of a time long ago
 +I saw an army of rebels, dancing on air
 +I dreamed as I slept, I could see the campfires,
 +A song of the battle, that was born in the flames,
 +and the rebels were waltzing on air.
 +
 +I danced with a girl to the tune of a waltz
 +that was written to be danced on the battlefield
 +I danced to the tune of a voice of a girl
 +A voice that called "Stand till we fall
 +we stand till all the boys fall."
 +
 +As we danced came the news that the war was not won
 +5 armies were coming, with carrige and gun
 +Through the heart of the camp
 +swept the news from the front
 +A cloud crossed the moon, a child cried for food
 +We knew the war could not be won.
 +
 +So we danced with a rifle, to the rhythm of the gun
 +in a glade through the trees i saw my only one
 +Then the earth seemed to rise hell hot as the sun
 +The soldiers were dying, there was tune to the sighing.
 +The song was an old rebel one.
 +
 +As the smoke of our hopes rose high from the field
 +My eyes played tricks through the moon and the trees
 +I slept as I dreamed I saw the army rise
 +A voice began to call, stand till you fall
 +The tune was an old rebel one.
 +

 +==== Crooked Beat ====
 +
 +Start the car lets make a midnight run
 +Across the river to South London
 +To dance to the latest hi-fi sound
 +Of bass, guitar and drum
 +Seeking out a rhythm that can take the pressure off
 +Stepping in and out of that crooked crooked beat
 +
 +Take a piece of cloth, a coin for thirst
 +For the sweat will start to run
 +With a cymbal splash, a word of truth
 +And a rocking bass and drum
 +Seeking out a rhythm that can take the pressure on
 +Stepping in and out of that crooked crooked beat
 +
 +So one by one they come on down
 +From the tower blocks of my home town
 +Stepping with the rhythm of the rockers beat
 +Drowning out the pressure of the crooked beat
 +Seeking out a rhythm that can take the tension on
 +Stepping in and out of that crooked crooked beat
 +
 +It has crooked past this crooked street
 +Where cars patrol this crooked beat
 +Badges flsh and sirens wail
 +They'​ll be taking one and all to jail
 +
 +Prance! Prance! You want a law to dance?
 +
 +
 +
 +==== Somebody Got Murdered ====
 +
 +Someone lights a cigarette
 +While riding in a car
 +Some ol' guy takes a swig
 +And passes back the jar
 +But where they were last night
 +No-one can remember
 +Somebody got murdered
 +Goodbye, for keeps, forever
 +
 +Somebody got murdered
 +Somebody'​s dead forever

 +I been very tempted
 +To grab it from the till
 +I been very hungry
 +But not enough to kill
 +
 +Somebody got murdered
 +His name cannot be found
 +A small stain on the pavement
 +They'​ll scrub it off the ground
 +As the daily crown disperses
 +No-one says that much
 +Somebody got murdered
 +And it' left me with a touch
 +
 +Somebody got murdered
 +Somebody'​s dead forever
 +Sounds like murder!
 +Those shouts!
 +Are they drunk down below?
 +
 +It's late, and my watch stopped
 +Some time ago
 +Sounds like murder!
 +Those screams!
 +Are they drunk down below?
 +
 +
 +

 +There'​s no need to, brothers everybody can see
 +That its one more time in the ghetto you know
 +One more time if you please now
 +One more time to the dying man
 +They say one more time if you please
 +
 +The old lady kicks karate
 +For just a little walk down the street
 +The little baby he knows kung fu
 +He tries it on those he meets
 +Cos its a one more time!

 +Watch when Watts town burns again
 +The bus goes to Montgomery

 +==== Lightning Strikes (Not Once But Twice) ====
 +
 +Now lightning strikes in old New York
 +It may be dark but I wanna talk
 +It might rain, it might snow
 +Too many things I got to know
 +If this is spring than it's time to sing
 +Never mind the l'il birdies wing
 +Look out, look out, old New York
 +New York's coming an' New York talks
 +Hey! Strike! Not once...
 +Strike! But twice!
 +
 +Get out your money - peel a slab
 +Roll some notes an' hail a cab
 +Drive in church drive in back
 +Drive down Seventh in a tank
 +Take in the sights, feel the breeze
 +See New York's one and only tree
 +It can be found in Garbage park
 +But don't inspect it after dark
 +Strike! New York! Lightning!
 +Not once but twice.
 +
 +Accidental hike in the transit strike
 +Roller skate or ride a bike
 +Three to a car, Brooklyn Bridge
 +You won't get far if you're privileged
 +Graffiti Jack sprays in black
 +An Englishman can he read it back?
 +Deli Joe he ought to know
 +He runs the gang on Pastrami Row
 +Strike! Lightning strike!
 +
 +Because glass to glass, street to street
 +Buildings touch St. Peter'​s feet
 +From car to bar, prez to shah
 +Everything is in the jar
 +The 4 winds blow cos the 4 winds know
 +Takes a special hustle to make a roll
 +Honey girl on her feet
 +I wish everything to make her sweet
 +Strike! Twice! OK so roll!
 +From Harlem! Strike one!
 +
 +Harlem slum to penthouse block
 +On every door I already knocked
 +There wasn't anybody that I didn't leave alone
 +Somebody lying under every stone
 +Everything that a man could need
 +In a bag down by my knee
 +That looks good, this ain't got seeds
 +Cheaper than booze down in the bowery
 +Lightning strike! Old New York!
 +Everything'​s light! Strike!
 +
 +Hey ho such a night
 +I'll see y'all when the lightning strike
 +A polaroid caught in the act
 +You're married too and that's a fact
 +But I won't peek and I won't squeek
 +Down by the trucks on Christopher Street
 +It's Cuban Day - Oi Vey
 +Chinese New Year let's call it a day
 +Tootsie! Hey Chi man!
 +That melody is Puerto Rican
 +Hey Chi man is what he's speaking
 +An' there'​s the road down into London Town
 +Where many cars get broken down
 +It's the Westway from Ladbroke Grove
 +Runs down to Old Hounslow
 +Just thought I'd mention the new extention
 +That run's down the 59th street intersection
 +Did you hear the news y'all?
 +London Town on the Broadway!
 +
 +
 +
 +==== Up In Heaven (Not Only Here) ====
 +
 +The towers of London, these crumbling rocks
 +Reality estates that the hero's got
 +And every hour's maked by the chime of a clock
 +And whatcha gonna do when the darkness surrounds?
 +You can piss in the lifts which have broken down
 +You can watch from the debris the last bedroom light
 +We're invisible here just past midnight
 +
 +The wives hate their husbands and their husbands don't care
 +Their children daub slogans to prove they lived there
 +A giant pipe organ up in the air
 +You can't live in a home which should not have been built
 +By the bourgeoise clerks who bear no guilt
 +When the wind hits this building this building it tilts
 +One day it will surely fall to the ground...
 +
 +Fear is just another commodity here
 +They sell us peeping holes to peek when we hear
 +A bang on the door resoundingly clear
 +Who would really want to move in here?
 +The children play faraway, the corridors are bare
 +This room is a cage its like captivity
 +How can anyone exist in such misery?
 +
 +It has been said not only here
 +
 +"​Allianza dollars are spent
 +To raise the towering buildings
 +For the weary bones of the workers
 +To go back in the morning
 +To be strong in the morning"​

 +
 +==== Corner Soul ====
 +
 +Is the music of grove skin rock
 +Soaked in the diesel of was boys war?
 +Blood, black gold and the face of a judge
 +Is the music calling for a river of blood?
 +
 +Beat the drums tonight, Alphonso
 +Spread the news all over the grove
 +The big meeting has decided
 +That total was must burn on the grove
 +
 +Does it mean I should take my machete
 +To chop my way through the path of life?
 +Does it mean I should run with the dog pack
 +Is that the way to be the one to survive?
 +
 +Never need a gun says Tai Chi
 +Move on up to dragon snaps his tail
 +Fall back on still waters
 +Hammer with his eye on the nail
 +
 +Spread the word tonight please, Sammy
 +They'​re searching everyhouse on the grove
 +Don't go alone now, Sammy!
 +The wind has blown away the corner soul

 +
 +==== Let's Go Crazy ====
 +
 +Summon up the mas! Play on the pan!
 +Staring dreads are jerking their locks
 +As the white star liner sank in the docks
 +But on the drummers face, there is a look of dread
 +As he drums away 400 years of dread
 +The dancer man-in the power of mas
 +Is smoking ti the mighty sparrow'​s blast
 +
 +But you better be careful
 +You still got to watch yourself
 +
 +You wanna be crazy

 +The lawful force are here of course
 +For special offenders for the special court
 +But the young men know when the sun has set
 +Darkness comes to settle the debt
 +Owed by a year of S.U.S. and suspect
 +Indiscriminate use of the power of arrest
 +
 +They'​re waiting for the sun to set
 +
 +The mighty observer who keeps his cabinets hot
 +A great meeting of rhythm and face
 +A humming of values and a children'​s place
 +But the sticks man gives the copper good excuse
 +To shut off the ganja and control the juice
 +
 +To control the juice
 +
 +So you wanna go crazy? Then let's go crazy
 +So take it on crazy! So they get all crazy
 +Bricks and bottles corrugated iron
 +Shields and helmets carnival time

 +'Cos tonight the sailor boys have hit Shanghai
 +The kick-out traffic goes creaking by

 +My drummer friend comes shooting by
 +He said Errol Flynn will never die
 +Oh no! Who am I to question why?
 +And are you lonesome tonight
 +And do ya need a country cowboy

 +Well there ain't no better blend
 +Than Joe Ely and his Texas Men
 +Where the wind blows

 +You can see from a bus if you pay the price

 +Wave my arms around
 +Flag one of those taxi's maybe
 +I saw a girl somewhere somehow
 +Forever sticks in my mind somehow
 +I've just got three lines
 +And a pair of two's
 +Like a lucky roll of dice that you

 +==== Sound of the Sinners ====
 +
 +As the floods of God
 +Wash away sin city
 +They say it was written
 +In the page of the Lord
 +But I was looking
 +For that great jazz note
 +That destroyed
 +The walls of Jericho
 +
 +The winds of fear
 +Whip away the sickness
 +The messages on the tablet
 +Was valium
 +As the planets form
 +That golden cross Lord
 +I'll see you on
 +The holy cross roads
 +
 +After all this time
 +To believe in Jesus
 +After all those drugs
 +I thought I was Him
 +After all my lying
 +And a-crying
 +And my suffering
 +I ain't good enough
 +I ain't clean enough
 +To be Him
 +
 +The tribal wars
 +Burning up the homeland
 +The fuel of evil
 +Is raining from the sky
 +The sea of lava
 +Flowing down the mountain
 +The time will sleep
 +Us sinners by
 +
 +Holy rollers roll
 +Give generously now
 +Pass the hubcap please
 +Thank you Lord

 +
 +Worried for my friend
 +As he shows me round the flat
 +Where I don't wanna find him
 +His lips an' eyelids black
 +He don't believe my speech
 +That lines can and should be drawn
 +Lke if he had a shotgun
 +The barrels would be sawn
 +
 +Swallowed by the river
 +Swollen by the rains
 +That leakin'​ ol' computer
 +Of fingerprints and names
 +Swimming in the river
 +That floods the neighborhood
 +I would call to you
 +But it would do no good
 +
 +Voting for the law
 +That's the general occupation
 +First comes the public safety

 +The lawyers work in shifts
 +
 +'N speaking of the devil
 +He ain't been seen for years
 +'Cept every 20 mins

 +Proud city fathers used to watch them
 +Tears in their eyes

 +For Castro is a colour,
 +Is a redder than red,
 +Those Washington bullets want Castro dead
 +For Castro is the colour...
 +...That will earn you a spray of lead
 +
 +For the very first time ever,
 +When they had a revolution in Nicaragua,
 +There was no interference from America
 +Human rights in America
 +
 +Well the people fought the leader,
 +And up he flew...
 +With no Washington bullets what else could he do?
 +
 +'​N'​ if you can find a Afghan rebel
 +That the Moscow bullets missed
 +Ask him what he thinks of voting Communist...
 +...Ask the Dalai Lama in the hills of Tibet,
 +How many monks did the Chinese get?
 +In a war-torn swamp stop any mercenary,
 +'​N'​ check the British bullets in his armoury
 +Que?

 +Groovy Times

 +THE HIGH STREET SHOPS ARE BOARDED UP
 +AN' THE TERRACE IT IS FENCED IN
 +SEE-THROUGH SHIELDS ARE WALLED ACROSS
 +THE WAY THAT YOU CAME IN
 +BUT THERE'​S NO NEED TO GET EXCITED

 +AS THE LORRIES BRING THE BACON IN
 +'COS THE HOUSEWIVES ARE ALL SINGING
 +GROOVY TIMES ARE HERE AGAIN

 +OUT OF THE BROKEN GLASS
 +YES IT'S NUMBER ONE, THE RADIO SAID
 +GROOVY TIMES HAVE COME TO PASS!

 +==== Gates of the West ====
 +
 +I would love to be the lucky one on chill avenue
 +Who could keep your heart warm when ice has turned it blue
 +But with the beggin'​ sleeping losers as they turn in for the night
 +I'm looking back for home and I can see the lights
 +
 +I should be jumpin'​ shoutin'​ that I made it all this way
 +From Camden town station to 44th and 8th
 +Not many make it this far and many say we're great
 +But just like them we walk on an' we can't escape our fate
 +Can't you hear the sighing
 +Eastside Jimmy and Southside Sue
 +Both say they needed something new
 +
 +So I'm standing at the gates of the west
 +I burn money at the lights of the sign
 +The city casts a shadow of the perfect crime
 +I'm standing at the gates of the east
 +I take my pulse and the pulse of my friend
 +The city casts a shadow, will I see you again?
 +
 +The immigrants an' remnants of all the glory years
 +Are clustered around the bar again for another round of beers
 +Little Richard'​s in the kitchen playing spoons and plates
 +He's telling the waitress he's great
 +
 +Ah say i know somewhere back'​n'​forth in time
 +Out on the dustbowls, deep in the roulette mine
 +Or in a ghetto cellar only yesterday
 +There'​s a move into the future for the USA.
 +
 +I hear them crying
 +Eastside Jimmy and Southside Sue
 +Both said they needed something new
 +
 +Standing at the gates of the west
 +In the shadow again
 +I'm standing at the gates of the west
 +In the shadow again

 +This time I think
 +So what the hell
 +There'​s that female
 +I know too well
 +
 +Why should I lean
 +Get out my mind again
 +I ridin' in the back alone
 +The stranger rides again
 +
 +To see my lovely town
 +That always brings you down
 +Where every drifter drifts
 +For many miles around
 +
 +We take a casual drive
 +For two miles up the road
 +The cops pull us over
 +And search right through our clothes
 +
 +They give him hell
 +They check him on the air
 +I sit there with the drugs in my hair
 +
 +As soon as I get home
 +I call Heathrow
 +Want a standby fare to Borneo

 +==== Long Time Jerk ====
 +
 +Gonna scrape the trouble off my boots!
 +
 +As they were dancing in the evening
 +And the light shone through the trees
 +This girl my eye was following
 +Asked the band to play her a beat
 +
 +Singin'​ she'd do that long time jerk
 +She hit me where it hurts
 +Ohhh your heart
 +Now my heart will burst
 +Oh no
 +
 +Ah, but it took me back to that wonderland
 +I witnessed long ago
 +Babbling words of preachers
 +Sayin'​- "​Don'​t bury me no more"
 +
 +Ohh...
 +
 +And I've forgotten how to worry
 +And I don't know how to run
 +Against the odds I realize
 +This struggle could be won!
 +
 +We dance
 +
 +Long time jerk
 +She did it to me first
 +Ohhh my heart
 +With that long time jerk
 +
 +Ah! Say..... Do that long time jerk.
 +
 +Bring on those tapes from the past
 +They make you look better in a mirror
 +Feel that long time jerkin'​
 +Between the taker and the giver
 +
 +Feel that...
 +
 +Long time jerk
 +She hit me where it hurts
 +Oh I felt my heart
 +Now my heart will burst
 +
 +I've forgotten how to worry
 +And I don't know how to run
 +Against the odds I realize
 +This struggle could be fun!
 +
 +Oh, through lanes and streets and houses
 +And reversing rush of time
 +She made me re-invent the world
 +Before inventing time
 +(Before inventing time)
 +
 +Long time jerk

 +SOME GAZE AT THE SOUL
 +FROM THE TIERS AND THE HEIGHTS
 +GO FOR THE FIFTEENTH FLOOR STROLL
 +
 +IT'S IMMEDIATELY OBVIOUS;
 +ANYBODY STAR-GILT
 +WOULD HAVE LEFT THIS CLUB
