The Clash

The Clash - North And South

(Strummer/Rhodes)

And so we say

We ain't got life

Don't want a cardboard cut-out

Don't want a plastic knife

Now I know, time can march

With it's chargin' feet

Now I know, words are only cheap

It's gonna be a burn out

All around this town

The South is up

But the North is down

There's gonna be a killin'

Of a woman and a man

Trying to feed that child

Without a coin in their hand

And so we say

Have you no use

For eight million hands

And the power of youth

Now I know, time can march

With it's chargin' feet

Now I know, words are only cheap

It's gonna be a burn out

All around this town

The South is up

But the North is down

There's gonna be a killin'

Of a woman and a man

Trying to feed that child

Without a coin in their hand

It's gonna be a burn out!

And so we say

We ain't diggin' no graves

We're diggin' a foundation

For a future to be made

Now I know, time can march

With it's chargin' feet

Now I know, words are only cheap

It's gonna be a burn out

All around this town

The South is up

But the North is down

There's gonna be a killin'

Of a woman and a man

Trying to feed that child

Without a coin in their hand

It's gonna be a burn out!
