Em Em                     C C
London calling to the faraway towns
Now that war is declared-and battle come down
Em Em C C
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
Em Em C C
London calling, now don't look at us
All that phoney beatlemania has bitten the dust
Em Em C C
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
'cept for the ring of that truncheon thing


Em Em G G
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Em Em G G
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
Em Em G G
A A nuclear error, but I have no fear
Em Em D D Em Em
London is drowning-and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, an' go it alone
London calling upon the zombies of death
Quit holding out-and draw another breath
London calling-and I don't wanna 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
