Clampdown Lyrics - The Clash

Review The Song (2)



(Strummer/Jones)

1-2-3-4!
Hey, hey!
Ooh!
the kingdom is ransacked
the jewels all taken back
and the chopper descends
they're hidden in the back
with a message on a half-baked tape
with the spool going round
saying im back here in this place
and i could cry
and there's smoke you could click on

What are we gonna do now?
Taking off his turban, they said, is this man a Jew?
’Cos working for the clampdown
sponsored links
They put up a poster saying we earn more than you!
When we're working for the clampdown
We will teach our twisted speech
To the young believers
We will train our blue-eyed men
To be young believers

The judge said five to ten but I say double that again
I'm not working for the clampdown
No man born with a living soul
Can be working for the clampdown
Kick over the wall 'cause government's to fall
How can you refuse it?
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

But, you grow up and you calm down and
You're working for the clampdown
You start wearing the blue and brown and
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
Working for the clampdown
But lately one or two has fully paid their due
For working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!
Working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!
Working for the clampdown

Yeah I’m working hard in Harrisburg
Working hard in Petersburg
Working for the clampdown
Working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong
Begging to be melted down
Gitalong, gitalong
Work
Work
And I give away no secrets – ha!
Work
More work
Work
Work

who's barmy now ?

Just sayin | Reviewer: W Bradford | 4/19/13

we got the clampdown here today in boston.
they had to do it.... to protect us all..
Stay off the streets those police told us..
dont be seen.. cops from everywhere..
FBI HOMELAND Sec ATF State and Local
and every imaginal attack weapon...
all in a lockdown......
They finally found the boy.. bleeding and
holed up in a boat...
We lost liberties today.. The boys fault of course

ITS ONLY ROCK AND ROLL???? | Reviewer: Stevedotc | 4/9/13

30 PLUS YEARS ON AND STILL RELEVANT......
THE BEST ROCK AND ROLL BAND EVER???
ROCK WITH ATTITUDE?
WHO HOLDS THIS MANTLE NOW?
THEY EVEN SING ABOUT CUPS OF TEA AND LONG DISTANCE TELEPHONE CALLS......
