The Clash Somebody Got Murdered Lyrics

Someone lights a cigarette

While riding in a car

Some ol’ guy takes a swig

And passes back the jar

But where they were last night

No-one can remember

Somebody got murdered

Goodbye, for keeps, forever

Somebody got murdered

Somebody’s dead forever

And you’re minding your own business

Carrying spare change

You wouldn’t cosh a barber

You’re hungry all the same

I been very tempted

To grab it from the till

I been very hungry

But not enough to kill

Somebody got murdered

His name cannot be found

A small stain on the pavement

They’ll scrub it off the ground

As the daily crown disperses

No-one says that much

Somebody got murdered

And it’ left me with a touch

Somebody got murdered

Somebody’s dead forever

Sounds like murder!

Those shouts!

Are they drunk down below?

It’s late, and my watch stopped

Some time ago

Sounds like murder!

Those screams!

Are they drunk down below?
