News of the World
The Jam Lyrics

Pop, pop (pop, pop, pop, pop)
Power, pop (power, power, pop, pop)

Read about the things that happen throughout the world
Don't be believe in everything you see or hear
The neighbors talk day in day out about the goings on
They tell us what they want, they don't give an inch

Look at the pictures taken by the cameras they cannot lie
The truth is in what you see, not what you read
Little men tapping things out, points of view
Remember their views are not the gospel truth

Don't believe it all
Find out for yourself
Check before you spread
News of the world

Never doubt
Never ask
Never moan
Never search
Never find
Never know

News of the world
News of the world

Each morning our key to the world comes through the door
More than often it's just a comic, not much more
Don't take it too serious, not many do
Read between the lines and you'll find the truth

Read all about it, read all about it
News of the world, news of the world
Read all about it, read all about it
News of the world, news of the world

Am I the only one who can understand Bruce's singing more clearly than Paul? :L Great song though, great band and great channel :) Cheers


I think the jam were one of the few genuine mod bands I say this because pete townshend said the who wasn't mod but they were adopted by the mods, I think you can say the same about the small faces and the kinks

Mrs Teresa McCavana

The Jam were a lot of things....mod...punky...r& wave....the lot.
Took it all....gelled it all and produced....the best band! Soulful.
