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


For the outro just play the last line of the chorus.

short third verse

Now get this
London Calling and I was there too
well 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 London Calling
never felt so much like it like it
