"Street Fighting Man" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
Everywhere I hear the sound of marching feet, boy
Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
But what can a poor boy do
'Cept to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No !

Hey ! Think the time is right for a palace revolution
But where I live the game to play is compromise solution
Well, what can a poor boy do
'Cept to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No ! No ! No !
Get down !

Hey ! Said my name is called disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail at all his servants
Well, what can a poor boy do
'Cept to sing in a rock 'n' roll band
Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No ! No ! No !

    General CommentI love at the start when Noel's like "Fucking hell! Motherfuckin' thing doesn't work. What the fuck?" Or something like that but either way it's just fuckin' hilare!

    General CommentThis is perfect for travelling with your headphones really loud. There is such bluster to this song, everything is so loud, probably due to the time it was recorded (Be Here Now Era).
    A good cover nonetheless.
