Johnny Clash

I’ve got a mate who lives in Vermont
He couldn’t find the music he wants
Sick and tired of the corporation
Started his own little radio station

Now he’s on the air each day
Telling folks about a different way
He plays Billy Bragg and a bit of Green Day
And “I’m So Bored With the U.S.A.”

Oh, people are on the move
Oh, people got a lot to prove

I’ve got a buddy who delivers the post
Up and down the northeast coast
When The Clash came to town he never missed ’em
He still wants to bust the system

But he has to go to work
That doesn’t mean he’s some kind of a jerk
Put food on the table, you know how that feels
Doesn’t mean he’s lost his ideals

Oh, people are on moving on
Oh, George Bush will soon be gone

The clampdown is still coming down hard
Police and thieves all over my yard
But these heavy manners don’t worry me
‘Cause I’m an heavier dude than I used to be

Oh, people are on moving on
Oh, Tony Blair will soon be gone

Cooperation, not competition
Cooperation, is not sedition

If you want all of your problems solved the
Answer is to have these people deported
Oh, Adolf Eichmann won’t you please go home
To the dustbin of history, ’cause that’s where you belong
With your big lie

Jesus Christ was a white man with blond hair
He had no time for peaceniks, he was for the Iraq War
Oh, Joseph Goebbels won’t you please go home
To the dustbin of history, ’cause that’s where you belong
With your big lie

The British National Party is led by
A man who believes six million Jews did not die
Oh, Adolf Hitler won’t you please go home
To the dustbin of history, ’cause that’s where you belong
With your big lie
Big lie
Big lie
