    London Calling

    Written by Joe Strummer and Mick Jones
    Performed by The Clash

    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
