The Clash Wiki

We met when we were in school
Never took no shit from no one, we weren't fools
The teacher says we're dumb
We're only having fun
You know, we piss on everyone
In the classroom

When we got thrown out I left without much fuss
And weekends we go dancing down Streatham on the bus
You always made me laugh
Got me in bad fights
Play me pool all night
Smoking Menthol

I practised daily in my room
You were down The Crown planning your next move
Go on a nicking spree
Hit the wrong guy
Each of you get three
Years in Brixton

I did my very best to write
How was Butlin's, were the screws too tight?
When you lot get out
We're gonna hit the town
We'll burn it fucking down
To a cinder!

'Cause years have passed and things have changed
I move anyway I wanna go
And I'll never forget the feeling I got
When I heard that you'd got home

And I'll never forget the smile on my face
'Cause I knew where you would be
And if you're in The Crown tonight
Have a drink on me!

But go easy
Step lightly
Stay free!
