London calling to the faraway towns
Now war is declared and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come outta' the cupboard, ya' boys and girls
London calling, now don't look at us
Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun's zoomin' in
The engines stop running, the wheat is growin' thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
London is drownin', and I, live by the river

(London calling) to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone
(London calling) to the zombies of death
Quit holdin' out and draw another breath
(London calling) and I don't want to shout
But when we start talking I saw you nodded out
(London calling), see we ain't got no high
'Cept for that one with yellowy eyes

The ice age is coming, the sun's is zoomin' in
The engines stop running, the wheat is growin' thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
London is drowning, and I, I live by the river

The ice age is coming, the sun's is zoomin' in
The engines stop running, the wheat's growin' thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
London is drowning, and I, I live by the river

(London calling) I was there, too
And ya' know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
(London calling) at the top of the dial
And after all this, won't you give me a smile?
(London calling, London calling, London calling, London calling)
I never felt so much alike alike alike
