The Clash - Bankrobber


MY DADDY WAS A BANKROBBER

BUT HE NEVER HURT NOBODY

HE JUST LOVED TO LIVE THAT WAY

AND HE LOVED TO STEAL YOUR MONEY

SOME IS RICH, AND SOME IS POOR

THAT’S THE WAY THE WORLD IS

BUT I DON’T BELIEVE IN LYING BACK

SAYlN’ HOW BAD YOUR LUCK IS

SO WE CAME TO JAZZ IT UP

WE NEVER LOVED A SHOVEL

BREAK YOUR BACK TO EARN YOUR PAY

AN’ DON’T FORGET TO GROVEL

THE OLD MAN SPOKE UP IN A BAR

SAID I NEVER BEEN IN PRISON

A LIFETIME SERVING ONE MACHINE

IS TEN TIMES WORSE THAN PRISON

IMAGINE IF ALL THE BOYS IN JAIL

COULD GET OUT NOW TOGETHER

WHADDA YOU THINK THEY’D WANT TO SAY TO US?

WHILE WE WAS BEING CLEVER

SOMEDAY YOU’LL MEET YOUR ROCKING CHAIR

COS THAT’S WHERE WE’RE SPINNING

THERE’S NO POINT TO WANNA COMB YOUR HAIR

WHEN IT’S GREY AND THINNING

RUN RABBIT RUN

STRIKE OUT BOYS, FOR THE HILLS

I CAN FIND THAT HOLE IN THE WALL

AND I KNOW THAT THEY NEVER WILL
