London calling to the faraway towns
Now war is declared, and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look to us
Phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

[Chorus 1:]
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin
Engines stop running, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone
London calling to the zombies of death
Quit holding out, and draw another breath
London calling, and I don't wanna shout
But when we were talking, I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain't got no high
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes

[Chorus 2: (x2)]
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I.. I live by the river!

Now get this:

London calling, yes, I was there, too
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
And after all this, won't you give me a smile?
London calling

I never felt so much alike [fading] alike alike alike


Lyrics as seen in the liner notes:

London calling to the faraway towns
Now that war is declared-and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look at us
All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
London is drowning-and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, an' go it alone
London calling upon the zombies of death
Quit holding out-and take another breath
London calling-and I don't wanna shout
But when we were talking-I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain't got no highs
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes

The ice age is coming...

London calling, yeah, I was there, too
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
After all this, won't you give me a smile?


Vanilla Tapes demo lyrics:

London Calling to the fools in the crowd
I would call it dangerous to gee your weight around

London Calling - we're the kings of the South
Hated all over, kings of the mouth

London calling, and we ain't got no swing
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

London Calling at the news o'clock nine
Evacuate the city appearing kind

CHORUS
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
The paper is dry, the wheat is getting thin
Meltdown expected reactor turning
London is drowning and I live by the river

London Calling to mods on the run
Stomp out forecast seaside fun
London Calling, the past is a cult
The wrong kind of jacket proof of that (?)

London C-c-c-call...

Ahh-ah-ah-ahhhh!

Never felt so much like..

London Calling
