Lyrics

London calling to the faraway towns Now that war is declared and battle come down London calling to the underworld Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls London calling, now don't look at us All that phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust London calling, see we ain't got no swing Except for the ring of that truncheon thing The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin Engines stop running, but I have no fear Because London is drowning and I, I live by the river London calling to the imitation zone Forget it, brother, and go it alone London calling upon the zombies of death Quit holding out and draw another breath London calling and I don't want to shout But when we were talking I saw you nodding out London calling, see we ain't got no highs Except for that one with the yellowy eyes The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin Engines stop running, but I have no fear Because London is drowning and I, I live by the river Now get this London calling, yeah, I was there, too And you know what they said? Well, some of it was true! London calling at the top of the dial After all this, won't you give me a smile? I never felt so much alike
