The Guns of Brixton
The Clash Lyrics


When they kick at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun?

When the law break in
How you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting in death row
You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'd have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton

The money feels good
And your life you like it well
But surely your time will come
As in heaven, as in hell

You see, he feels like Ivan
Born under the Brixton sun
His game is called survivin'
At the end of "The Harder They Come"

You know it means no mercy
They caught him with a gun
No need for the Black Maria
Goodbye to the Brixton sun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
oh, the guns of Brixton

When they kick at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun?

You can crush us
You can bruise us
And even shoot us
But oh, the guns of Brixton

Shot down on the pavement
Waiting in death row
His game was survivin'
As in heaven as in hell

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'd have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton
Oh, guns of Brixton
Oh, guns of Brixton
Oh, guns of Brixton

Cool to see a punk band use different genres on their album.

Pote Serieux

They’re not just a punk band, they’re an extremely versatile musical ensemble who’s unique sound will forever be engraved in the collective memory of music lovers. Great music, man.

willie luncheonette

IMO Stiff Little Fingers were as adept as the Clash in playing reggae and reggae influenced ....Check out their tremendous renderfing of Bunny Wailer's, Roots Radics Reggae and their sublime Safe As Houses. Their long Johnny Was, Bob's song, ain't no chopped liver either.

jimbojamesIV

clearly a tribute to reggae and marley and tosh and the Irie I
