"Joe Strummer" as written by Mitchell Allan Scherr, Paul Sanchez, Sonia Tetlow, John Thomas and Fred Le Blanc....
She had all the tattoos and the piercings
Hates everything says everybody's wrong
She dressed like she slept with Guns n´ Roses
But I busted her singing all the boyband songs

She had to go simply because and I let her go like
she never was cause I didn't know and I don't
care what she does she had to go cause she
didn't know who Joe Strummer was Hey!

At night when we stood in line for hours waiting
to see my favorite punk rock band I played with
the passion and the power but she's only there
for all the fashion trends with her clueless friends

She had to go, she had to go simply because,
simply because, and I let her go, I let her go like
she never was, like she never was cause I didn't
know, cause I didn't know and I don't care what
she does, simply because, she had to go cause
she didn't know who Joe Strummer was, Joe
Strummer was, Joe Strummer was

She started talkin' bout me and my life but why
would I wanna be with someone who doesn t
know the Clash save my life

It's not that she didn't rock my casbah it's not that
I couldn't burn her London down, it's just that she
kept on disappearing whenever the Sandinistas came to town and burned it down

She had to go simply because,
I let her go like she never was, cos i didn´t know and i don't care what
she does, she had to go cause
she didn't know who Joe Strummer was, Joe
Strummer was, Joe Strummer was, Joe Strummer
was, Joe Strummer was, Joe Strummer was, Joe
Strummer was, Joe Strummer was
