The Prisoner (囚徒) - The Clash (碰撞樂隊)

The prisoner meets the muppet hi-fi


North of watford junction


We get in but we don't have fun

An' we leave before the truncheons

So it's back to watch the day to day

Saga of working people


Hanging out the washing and clipping coupons

And generally being decent


Johnny too bad meets johnny be good

In the charing cross road

That's the only thing that happened today

Says the west end jungle code

And all the germans and all the french

Jam themselves down the tube


And re-enact the second world war


While the rude boys get rude


And i look to my left


And i look to my right


And i'm looking for a man


I'm looking for a sign


I don't wanna be the prisoner


The prisoner lives in camden town

Selling revolution

The prisoner loads his tracking arm up

With self-disillusion

Your mother does the washing up

Your old man digs the garden


You're only free to dodge the cops

An' bunk the train to stardom
