The Clash - Junkie Slip

I wasn't going that far

The junkie slip!

I said I wasn't doin' it

The junkie slip!

Yea thought I'd find a rhythm in the junkie town

Thought I'd find a rhythm when the junkies hang around

Thought I'd go out walking to the junkie kind of beat

Setting on those bars that the junkies meet

The junkie slip!

Nail it down

The junkie slip!

This side of town

The junkie slip!

And whatcha knowing before you's a doin

The things they's a-knowing

You pawn your coat and your car

Pawned your cigar and your old guitar

You pawned your guitar and your saxaphone

You're pawning everything in your mother's home

Cos it's a junkie slip!

Just like rock n' roll

A junkie slip!

Like Johnnny did the stroll

And you know it feels alright

But what's that feeling on a Saturday night?

You're itching itching itching in your pillow in the day

You're itching itching itching and you gave your coat away

Itching itching itching and then in your sleeping bag

There's a little packet that youthought you never had

It's a junkie slip!

Every night

Junkie slip!

Cold water fright

It's a junkie slip

And an old spoon cooky cooky cooky kooky afternoon

All afternoon and in the middle of the night

You're worse for the difference and it don't sleep tight

Don't pull the curtains fon't put on the light

C-c-c-cos it's a junkie slip!

What's goin' on?

Was early night

I lit the fire

Finish alright

Yeh Edi-Edi-Edi-Yeh Edi-Juan

Him going to live with indian

Come in the car, it's an old machine

Riding from Brookway on a magazine

Be on that corner with a magazine

Do ya do ya do ya follow your friends?

Do I hear you saying that you're going back again?

It's a junkie slip!

Where? Did it end?

But did it ah did it did it ever end?

When did it ever end?

Don't ask me when on a Wednesday night

Don't ask me when on a Thrusday night

I said oh? Who the hell are you?

You said oh! Well you met me

I said I can guess why
