"Life Is Wild" as written by Joe Strummer and Bernard Rhodes....
Hey anybody got a cigarette?

Has anybody got a cigarette
Haven't you declared a disaster zone
Ho! Your car is a total wreck
And I just can't go back home

My girl if she had the dope
We'd get the messieurs on the phone
I still got to get up and go home
Don't start driving on my headstone

Go!
Life is wild life is free
Make him want to stop, gonna fall on me
Life is wild life is free
Make him want to stop, gonna (???) me

Here's to all of my kindred souls
He got a life but ain't got no style
Well heard that your story goes
You nearly broke down after half a mile

Hey that is the way it goes
You better keep a note on file
You'll have to reap what I suppose
Gets you a floor and a (???)

Life is wild life is free
Make him want to stop, gonna fall on me
Life is wild life is free
Make him want to stop, gonna (???) me

Somebody got a cigarette?
A guitar or a blank cassette
Hey! The last thing he'd expect in his bar
Gonna chart the rise of my star

Life is wild life is free
Make him want to stop, gonna fall on me
Life is wild life is free
Make him want to stop, gonna (???) me

    General CommentNo one has commented on this song. Since it's a Clash song, even a Cut the Crap song, it deserves at least one comment. Personally I have no idea what this song sounds like, I must have listened to it at least once since I have a copy of Cut the Crap and have listened to it exactly once. So yeah.... As for the meaning, the repeated line "Has anybody got a cigarette?" seems to suggest that the speaker wants to smoke, unfortunately no one appears to have a cigarette to spare as his request is repeated several times. Sucks for him.

    My InterpretationThis is one of my favorite songs by the Clash, it always lifts me up. I think this song is about all the problems and hard times in this world, life can still be fun "wild and free". Even when your feeling like crap or when things go wrong don't let people get you down its gona happen, that's my interpretation anyways.
