Song Lyrics, The Clash (Cover) : Washington Callin
by Jemma Hawtrey
Age Group: Adult
Washington calling to the faraway towns
Now that war is declared-you will come on down
Washington calling to the rest of the world
Come down off the fence, all you boys and girls
London responding, now whats all this fuss?
All that phoney terror-mania will soon bite the dust
Washington calling, see your gonna swing
if you don’t wanna sing what we want you to sing
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running and the kids are growing thin
the politicians error, we’re living in fear
The world is drowning-and I cry me a river
Berlin calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone
Washington calling upon the Muslims of Death
Quit holding out until your last breath
Washington calling-and I don’t wanna shout
But when I was talking-I saw you walking out
Paris calling, see we wont fall for your lies
fresh from that one with the yellowy eyes
Now get this
Madrid calling, yeah, I was there, too
An’ you know what they said? well, none of it was true!
The World calling at the top of the dial
After all this, would you ever wanna smile?
I cry me a river….

Author's Notes: This is another one resulting from my sojourn at the Colchester Hole in the Wall pub last night.
With this one I have tried to stay true to the rhythm and meter of the song while putting in the different countries points of view...
Disclaimer: I am *NOT* bashing Muslims or the Islamic faith before anyone starts.
Thanks to the Clash for penning & singing the original. Its one of my favourite songs.
greets to all the usual ppl
walk in light
