Ghost Town
The Specials Lyrics


This town is coming like a ghost town
All the clubs have been closed down
This place is coming like a ghost town
Bands won't play no more
Too much fighting on the dance floor

Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town?
We danced and sang and the music played in natty-boom town

This town is coming like a ghost town
Why must the youth fight against itself?
Government leaving the youth on the shelf
This place is coming like a ghost town
No job to be found in this country

Can't go on no more
The people getting angry

This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town

This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town

"Do you remember the good old days/Before the Ghost Town?"
Heard this song back in 1981, just before the major riots took
place around the country. Nearly forty years later, the theme of
this song is an eerie summary of London right now due to the
outbreak of coronavirus. There was hardly anybody about, when
I went out yesterday evening.


Still creepily brilliant after all these years.
