The Clash Lyrics
6. Guns on the Roof
I swear by Almighty God To tell the whole truth And nothing but the truth Guns guns They torture all the women and children Then they've put the men to the gun 'Cos across the human frontier Freedom's always on the run Guns guns a-shaking in terror Guns guns killing in error Guns guns guilty hands Guns guns shatter the lands A system built by the sweat of the many Creates assassins to kill off the few Take any place and call it a court house This is a place where no judge can stand Sue the lawyers and burn all the papers Unlock the key of the legal rapers A jury of a billion faces Shouted out condemned out of hand Guns guns, and nobody's kidding Guns guns, or foolin' around Guns guns, the violence is singing Guns guns, a silence the sound 'N I Iike to be in Aferica A-beatin' on the final drum 'N I like to be in U.S.S.R. Makin' sure these things will come 'N I like to be in U.S.A. Pretending that the wars are done 'N I like to be in Europa Saying goodbye to everyone Guns guns there's guns on the roof Guns guns they're made to shoot
