The Clash Wiki

I searched through the drinkers
Each propped over his glass
I ran through each bar
Till I found Guy at last

"Guy, you've been to the doctor
No, I don't think it wise"
Took one of his pills -
Boiled the blood in my eyes!

"When you played your master mix
To the company man
Took three million worldwide
To make him understand"

"You don't work for peanuts
But they'll push you to
It's that company trick
We're all jumping through"

"You worked day and nights though
Rocking out of Ham Yard
Oh, skip that fandango
Bring the Blues back down hard!"

Though Chuck would never admit it
At the door of the jail
There stood Guy Stevens
And he was waving the bail

"Guy, you've finished the booze
And you run out of Speed
But the wild side of life
Is the one that we need!"
