Clash – Guns on the Roof

Guns on the Roof

I swear by Almighty God
To tell the whole truth
And nothing but the truth

Guns guns
They torture all the women and children
Then they’ve put the men to the gun
‘Cos across the human frontier
Freedom’s always on the run

Guns guns a-shaking in terror
Guns guns killing in error
Guns guns guilty hands
Guns guns shatter the lands

A system built by the sweat of the many
Creates assassins to kill off the few
Take any place and call it a court house
This is a place where no judge can stand

Sue the lawyers and burn all the papers
Unlock the key of the legal papers
A jury of a billion faces
Shouted out condemned out of hand

Guns guns, and nobody’s kidding
Guns guns, or foolin’ around
Guns guns, the violence is singing
Guns guns, a silence the sound

‘N I Iike to be in Aferica
A-beatin’ on the final drum
‘N I like to be in U.S.S.R.
Makin’ sure these things will come
‘N I like to be in U.S.A.
Pretending that the wars are done
‘N I like to be in Europa
Saying goodbye to everyone

Guns guns there’s guns on the roof
Guns guns they’re made to shoot

Clash – Groovy Times

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

THEY DISCOVERED ONE BLACK SATURDAY
THAT MOBS DON’T MARCH THEY RUN
SO YOU CAN EXCUSE THE NERVOUS TRIGGERMAN
JUST THIS ONCE FOR JUMPING THE GUN
AS THEY WERE PICKING UP THE DEAD
OUT OF THE BROKEN GLASS
YES IT’S NUMBER ONE, THE RADIO SAID
GROOVY TIMES HAVE COME TO PASS!

GROOVY TIMES GROOVY TIMES GROOVY TIMES

THE INTAKE IS ON THE UPTAKE
THE ACCELERATION’S PRETTY GRIM
I CAN REMEMBER HIS FIRST APPEARANCE
NOW LOOK WHAT’S HAPPENED TO HIM
SO THEY PUT HIM IN A DOG SUIT
LIKE FROM 1964
THE KING OF EARLY EVENING TV
GROOVY TIMES FOREVER MORE

GROOVY TIMES
