The Clash Red Angel Dragnet Lyrics

I come from a long way away
And I know a fine thing when I see it.
For the same reason no one ever
Pointed a telescope at the sun
Talking about the Red Angels of N. Y. City
Who shot the shot?
Who got shot tonight?
Not even five enforcement agencies can save their own.
Never mind the people
Tonight it's raining on the Angels of the City
Did anyone prophesize these people?
Come in Travis
One of these days I'm gonna get myself organized.
All the animals come out at night.
Queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick venal.
Some day a real rain will come and wash all the scum off the streets.
Thank god for the rain to wash the trash off the sidewalk. Listen you screwheads:
Here is a man who would not take it anymore.
A man who stood up against the scum, the filth.
Now I see clearly.
Personally I know the alley
Where Jack feeds on the birds of night
Not even bobbies on bicycles 2x2
Can stop the blood and feathers flying
Wearing overalls and for once and for all
What is the dream?
I'll tell it
To live like they do in the movies
San Juan you listening?
Yeah I bet you are
Hands up for Hollywood
I hear you
Snappy on the air
Hang in their
Wall to wall
You saved the world
What else? You saved the girl
Champagne on ice
No stranger to Alcatraz
Or strip it down
Chop it a little
Just freedom to move
For women to take a walk in the park at midnight
Hey, but this is serious
She can't even get back home
I come from a long way off
And I know a lifegiver over a lifetaker
For the same reason no-one ever pointed
A gun at a policeman
Talking about the Red Angels of New York City
