~ 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
Phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
'Cept for the reign of that truncheon thing
CHORUS
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 burning - 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 running out
London calling, see we ain't got no high
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes
CHORUS x2
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 - I, I live by the river
Now get this
London calling, yes, I was there, too
An' 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, like-a, like-a...
By Strummer and Jones, The Clash and not by The Ruts

probably both :>)

I didn't note the site but I would have cut and paste so it would seem the Ruts claim to have written it.

Thanks for your comment :>)

Grin, well as a pedant I would have to say that it was Strummer and Jones who wrote it, those naughty little Ruts ;-)

Love your blog btw.

I changed the post, you're sure you're right?

I think I only got the Album wrong in Babylon's Burning. See I was waiting for you all along;>)
