"Goodmorning Sodom and Gomorra
Goodmornig sinners
No that wasn`t your radio set on the bleep again"

Sodom and Gomorra
Let the DJ play
`Cos I`m only gone tomorrow and here today

Lotta rockheads on the block
Dougie died and Sue got frocked
If the stove is hot then I ain`t lost
And Rosa says my star is crossed
Little Jamie writes V. Thirteen
Comes in by the door goes out by screen
He don`t listen to me he knows everything
Girls on the avenue ask me to sing

Sodom and Gomorra
Let the DJ play
`Cos I`m only gone tomorrow and here today

The paper drags and folds me down
Like a paper cup I fly around
I`ve been eating food that ain`t been checked
And the Russian rain is beating down my neck
Screen blackout on the southern war
Cue talk breakdown on point forty four
There must be a place the preacher say "I guess"
But a drifter will tell you no place is best

Shout for all the people who have nothing to say
`Cos were only gone tomorrow and here today

Was a one off dirt jam when England came good
One night in a thousand they`ve played knock on wood
We used to go roamin` go roamin` around
When you don`t look for something it`s sure to be found

Sodom and Gomorra
Let the DJ play
`Cos I`m only gone tomorrow and here today
Shout for all the people who have nothing to say
`Cos were only gone tomorrow and here today
Sodom and Gomorra
Let the DJ play
`Cos I`m only gone tomorrow and here today
Yes I`m only gone tomorrow and here today

"Sodom and Gomorra this is London gov."

    General CommentCan't believe no one has said anything about this song yet. I love the lyrics to this song. And it marked the return of Strummer/Jones. These lyrics scream Joe Strummer to me. I love the line "Let the DJ play cause I'm only gone tomorrow and here today". Life is short so make it a party!

    General CommentV13 is a type of train in Englatera. Little Jamie (rides?) V13. If BAD sang about cholo mobsters, you'd know it.

    General CommentAll I know is that V13 was a cholo gang from venice california—suicidal tendencies co-opted their look.
