"Slant Six" as written by and Joe/schloss Strummer....
Youth, money, success and power
Expressing your soul to critical acclaim
Now you're insatiable--there's no stopping you
If something lasts for a minute--it's scored a hit with you
What are you gonna do for an encore?
C'mon baby after an act like that
People are gonna scream for more

You've got Juan-Les-Pins
You got the needle and the deep cellar wine
You've got the slow boat to China
You own part of South Carolina

How about wrapping your slant six
Around Inspiration Point?
Or I wanna be alone
That's your other choice
You've got Juan-les-Pins
You've got the needles and the deep cellar wine
You've got the slow boat to China
You own part of South Carolina

That's what you were to the crowd
The imprint is indelible
Who the hell cares what you are now
The soundtrack is too loud
And everything's sweet except for
Avoiding books and magazines
What a fate to be imprisoned
At the height of your dreams

You've got Juan-les-Pins
You've got the needles and the deep cellar wine
You've got the slow boat to China
You own part of South Carolina.
