The Clash Robber Dub Lyrics


My Daddy was a bankrobber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money
Some is rich and some is poor And that's the way the world is, But i don't believe in lying back And saying how bad your luck is
So we came to jazz it up Never loved the shovel
Break your back to earn your pay
And don't forget to grovel
Daddy was a bankrobber But he never hurt nobody He just loved to live that way And he loved to take your money An old man spoke up in a bar
He said I never been in prison
A life time serving one machine Is ten times worse than prison
Imagine if all the boys in jail Could get out now together Whaddya think they'd wanna say to us While we was being clever
Someday you'll meet your rocking chair
Cos that's where we're spinning
There's no point to wanna come your hair When it's grey and thinning

Yeah

My daddy was a bankrobber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way And he loved to steal your money
And so we came to jazz it up We've never loved the shovel Break your back to earn your pay And don't forget to grovel Hey
Get away, get away, get away, get away, get away, get away, get away
Yeah daddy was a bankrobber But he never hurt nobody He just loved to live that way And he loved to steal your money
Hey Run Rabbit Run Strike out boy For the hills
I can't find that hole in the wall
I know that they never will
Daddy was a bankrobber
But he never hurt nobody He he he Get away, get away, get away, get away Money He loved to steal your Money
