The Call Up Lyrics - The Clash

Review The Song (3)



It's up to you not to heed the call-up
'N' you must not act the way you were brought up
Who knows the reasons why you have grown up?
Who knows the plans or why they were drawn up?

It's up to you not to heed the call-up
I don't wanna die!
It's up to you not to hear the call-up
I don't wanna kill!

For he who will die
Is he who will kill

Maybe I wanna see the wheatfields
Over Kiev and down to the sea

All the young people down the ages
They gladly marched off to die
Proud city fathers used to watch them
Tears in their eyes

There is a rose that I want to live for
Although, God knows, I may not have met her
There is a dance an' I should be with her
There is a town - unlike any other

It's up to you not to hear the call-up
'N' you must not act the way you were brought up
Who give you work an' why should you do it?
At fifty five minutes past eleven
There is a rose...
Yeah!

great song | Reviewer: Rafael Höptner | 9/12/2008

Maybe I don´t understand the lyrics at all because english is not my mother tongue. But I feel that this special song gives something to me.
"It's up to you not to hear the call-up
'Nnnn' you must not act the way you were brought up
Who gives you work an' why should you do it?
Fifty five minutes past eleven"
Timeless...



The Call-up , it's absolutely timeles | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/10/2008

The track 'the call-up' has something very special. The way he sings 'who knows the reasons why you have grown up' reminds me of the proud melancholy of Morrissey for example, it carries such a magical atmosphere in it. Many ,many thanks to Joe and the boys....



The greatest album! | Reviewer: Myke | 7/20/2007

I love just about everything The Clash has done, and contrary to what a lot of critics say, I feel that Sandinista! is the best record of 'em all. What, 36 songs? Amazing. I'm also a huge fan of Dub, and there's plenty of it here. Paul's influence on the band I think is underestimated.
Cheers!
