The Lyrics Are Below

City of the Dead

(Strummer/Jones)

 

THIS IS THE CITY OF THE DEAD

AS WE LIE SIDE BY SIDE IN BED

I'D DO SOMETHING ELSE INSTEAD

BUT IT IS THE CITY OF THE DEAD

 

WE WENT OUT KICKIN' AROUND

BUT YOU GOT DRUNK AN' FALLEN DOWN

AN' I WISHED I COULD BE LIKE YOU

WITH THE SOHO RIVER DRINKING ME DOWN

 

IN THE CITY OF THE DEAD

FALL IN LOVE AN' FALL IN BED

IT WASN'T ANYTHING YOU SAID

EXCEPT I KNOW WE BOTH LIE DEAD

 

DON'T YOU KNOW WHERE TO COP

 

THAT'S WHAT NEW YORK JOHNNY SAID * * * *

YOU SHOULD GET TO KNOW YOUR TOWN

JUST LIKE I KNOW MINE

 

WHILE ALL THE WINDOWS STARE AHEAD

AN' THE STREETS ARE FILLED WITH DREAD

EVERY NATION IN THE WORLD

SLINKS THROUGH THE ALLEY AFTER GIRLS

 

WHAT WE WEAR IS DANGEROUS GEAR

IT'LL GET YOU PICKED ON ANYWHERE

THOUGH WE GET BEAT UP WE DON'T CARE

AT LEAST IT LIVENS UP THE AIR

 

BUT SOMEDAYS WE HIDE INSIDE

ALL COURAGE GONE AND PARALYSED

SNIFF THAT WIND OF UGLY TENSION

TODAY THE JERKS HAVE GOT AGGRESSION

 

IT IS THE CITY OF THE DEAD

 

*JOHNNY THUNDERS
