6. THE CALL UP (Sandinista!) 1980

It’s up to you not to heed the call-up
‘N’ you must not act the way you were brought up
Who knows the reasons why you have grown up?
Who knows the plans or why they were drawn up?

It’s up to you not to heed the call-up
I don’t wanna die!
It’s up to you not to hear the call-up
I don’t wanna kill!

For he who will die
Is he who will kill

Maybe I wanna see the wheatfields
Over kiev and down to the sea

All the young people down the ages
They gladly marched off to die
Proud city fathers used to watch them
Tears in their eyes

There is a rose that I want to live for
Although, god knows, I may not have met her
There is a dance an’ I should be with her
There is a town – unlike any other

It’s up to you not to hear the call-up
‘N’ you must not act the way you were brought up
Who give you work an’ why should you do it?
At fifty five minutes past eleven
There is a rose…
Yeah!

7. STRAIGHT TO HELL (Combat Rock) 1982

If you can play on the fiddle
How’s about a British jig and reel?
Speaking King’s English in quotation
As railhead towns feel the steel mills rust
Water froze
In the generation
Clear as winter ice
This is your paradise
There ain’t no need for ya
There ain’t no need for ya
Go straight to hell boys
Go straight to hell boys
Wanna join in a chorus, of the Amerasian blues?
When it’s Christmas out in Ho Chi Minh city
Kiddie say papa papa papa papa papa-san take me home
See me got photo, photo, photograph of you
And mamma mamma mamma-san
Of you and mamma mamma mamma-san
Lemme tell ya ‘bout your blood bamboo kid
It ain’t coca-cola it’s rice
Straight to hell boys
Go straight to hell boy
Go straight to hell boys
Go straight to hell boys
Oh papa-san
Please take me home
Oh papa-san
Everybody they wanna go home
So mamma-san says
«You wanna play mind-crazed banjo
On the druggy-drag ragtime U.S.A?
In Parkland international
Hah, Junkiedom U.S.A
Where procaine proves the purest rock man groove
And rat poison»
The volatile Molatov says
Straight to hell
Can you cough it up loud and strong
The immigrants, they wanna sing all night long
It could be anywhere
Most likely could be any frontier
Any hemisphere
No man’s land
There ain’t no asylum here
King Solomon he never lived ‘round here
Straight to hell boy
Go straight to hell boy
Go straight to hell boys
Go straight to hell boys

8. HITSVILLE UK (Sandinista!) 1980

They cried the tears, they shed the fears
Up and down the land
They stole guitars or used guitars
So the tape would understand.
Without even
The slightest hope
Of a thousand sales
Just as if
As if there was
Hitsville in UK
I Know the boy was all alone
Till the Hitsville hit UK.
Remember
They say true talent
Will always emerge in time
When lightening hits small wonder
It’s fast rough factory trade
No expense accounts
Or lunch discounts
Or hypeing up the charts
The band went in
And knocked ‘em dead
In two minutes fifty-nine
I know the boy was all alone
Till the Hitsville hit UK
So hit it
No slimy deals
With smarmy eels
In Hitsville UK
Let’s shake and say
We’ll operate
In Hitsville UK
I know the boy felt all alone
Till the Hitsville hit UK
The mutants, creeps and muscle men
Are shaking like a leaf
It blows a hole in the radio
When it hasn’t sounded good all week
A mike ‘n’ boom
In your living room
In Hitsville UK
No consumer trials
No A.O.R.
In Hitsville UK
I know the boy felt all alone
Till the Hitsville hit UK
Now the boys and girls are not alone
Now the Hitsville hit UK.
I know the boys and girls are not alone
Now the Hitsville hit UK.
I know the boys and girls are not alone
Now the Hitsville hit UK.
I know the boys and girls are not alone
Now the Hitsville hit UK.

9. DIRTY PUNK O WE ARE THE CLASH (Cut The Crap) 1985

Gonna be a dirty punk
Gonna crowd your neighbourhood
To the sound of rebel funk
Turn it up loud, like it should
I could hear your mama scream
She’s gonna waste herself away
When your daddy smashed that TV screen
I understood what he had to say
I’m going to get me a big, big, big, big, big car
Then I’m gonna drive, drive, drive, I’m gonna drive so far
Up your boulevard, up your boulevard
So far, up your boulevard
Gonna be a dirty punk
While my brother dresses clean
He used to be the local hunk
The girls all ride in my machine
How about the time I made them drunk
And they insult my brotherhood
I shout: «I am a dirty punk
Gonna rock your neighbourhood!»
Gonna to get a big, big, big, big, big car
Then I’m gonna drive, drive, drive, drive so far
Up your boulevard, up your boulevard
So far, up your boulevard
Gonna to get a big, big, big – go faster!
Then I’m gonna go, this ghetto blaster
Up your boulevard, up your boulevard
Go so far, up your boulevard
Gonna drive my a big, big, big, big, big car
Gonna drive, drive, drive, drive so far
Up your backyard, down the boulevard
So far, down the boulevard

10. SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO (Combat Rock) 1982

Darlin’ you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?
If you say that you are mine
I’ll be here ‘til the end of time
So you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

It’s always tease tease tease
You’re happy when I’m on my knees
One day is fine and next is black
So if you want me off your back
Well come on and let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
And if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know

This indecision’s buggin’ me (esta indecisión me molesta)
If you don’t want me, set me free (Si no me quieres, librame)
Exactly whom I’m supposed to be (Dime! ¿Qué tengo ser?)
Don’t you know which clothes even fit me? (No sabes que ropas me queda)
Come on and let me know (Pero tienes que decir)
Should I cool it or should I blow? (¿Me debo ir o quedarme?)

Split

(Doble! ¿Me frío o lo soplo?)
(Esperda)
(Rrattarrattarrattaa…)

Should I stay or should I go now? (Yo me enfrio o lo soplo)
Should I stay or should I go now? (Yo me enfrio o lo soplo)
If I go there will be trouble (Si me voy, va a haber peligro)
And if I stay it will be double (Si me quedo, es doble)
So you gotta let me know (Pero que tienes que decir)
Should I cool it or should I blow? (¿Me frío o lo soplo?)
Should I stay or should I go now? (¿Me frío o lo soplo?)
If I go there will be trouble (Si me voy, va a haber peligro)
And if I stay it will be double (Si me quedo, es doble)
So you gotta let me know (Pero que tienes que decir)
Should I stay or should I go
