Somebody Got Murdered Lyrics - The Clash

Review The Song (2)

Someone lights a cigarette
While riding in a car
Some ol' guy takes a swig
And passes back the jar
But where they were last night
No-one can remember
Somebody got murdered
Goodbye, for keeps, forever

Somebody got murdered
Somebody's dead forever

And you're minding your own business
Carrying spare change
You wouldn't cosh a barber
You're hungry all the same
I been very tempted
To grab it from the till
I been very hungry
But not enough to kill

Somebody got murdered
His name cannot be found
A small stain on the pavement
They'll scrub it off the ground
As the daily crowd disperses
No-one says that much
Somebody got murdered
And it' left me with a touch

Somebody got murdered
Somebody's dead forever
Sounds like murder!
Those shouts!
Are they drunk down below?

It's late, and my watch stopped
Some time ago
Sounds like murder!
Those screams!
Are they drunk down below?

I saw The Clash. Be not jealous, Joe Strummer said he did not think The Clash made a difference!, I humbly disagree.
And the above reviewer is WRONG. Nothing "saved" Sandanista fyi, It was never lost, It was DESTINED to be what it is. Remembered WELL, And still making a difference in mens hearts and thoughts. ZoH

This song saved the "Sandinista" album. If it wasn't for this gem, I wouldn't have recognized this as a Clash album. The song still sounds as fresh and poignant today as it did when it was released nearly 30 years ago.
