The Clash

The Clash - Long Time Jerk

Gonna scrape the trouble off my boots!

As they were dancing in the evening

And the light shone through the trees

This girl my eye was following

Asked the band to play her a beat

Singin' she'd do that long time jerk

She hit me where it hurts

Ohhh your heart

Now my heart will burst

Oh no

Ah, but it took me back to that wonderland

I witnessed long ago

Babbling words of preachers

Sayin'- "Don't bury me no more"

Ohh...

And I've forgotten how to worry

And I don't know how to run

Against the odds I realize

This struggle could be won!

We dance

Long time jerk

She did it to me first

Ohhh my heart

With that long time jerk

Ah! Say..... Do that long time jerk.

Bring on those tapes from the past

They make you look better in a mirror

Feel that long time jerkin'

Between the taker and the giver

Feel that...

Long time jerk

She hit me where it hurts

Oh I felt my heart

Now my heart will burst

I've forgotten how to worry

And I don't know how to run

Against the odds I realize

This struggle could be fun!

Oh, through lanes and streets and houses

And reversing rush of time

She made me re-invent the world

Before inventing time

(Before inventing time)

Long time jerk

Oh, she hit me where it hurts

Ohhhhh my heart

Long time jerk

Long, long, long, long, long

Long time

Long time jerk
