Joe Strummer - Jewellers & Bums Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Check into a car wash, eat out at the Bowlmore
  • Go buy a rose at the movies on a train
  • Get married by a biker, go hang a priest
  • Walk tall with a dwarf and you'll find relief
  • Leaning strategically on a Desoto at muscle beach
  • A four thousand car pileup made the freeway screech
  • Not talking about rubber but stereos
  • And the loudest one drilling was for Oreos
  • Where was I gonna find you,
  • Where was I supposed to look?
  • In some glittering diamond in the valley,
  • Or in the harpoons of your opium hooks?
  • Standing in line renting a toothpick
  • There were three armed raids on the bank
  • And would there be a kiosk at the gates of heaven
  • For sinners like me and Hank?
  • Saturday night you were dreaming city hospital
  • The band set up in the morgue
  • And while you was doing the Dashing White Sergeant
  • You cut your feet on the swords
  • The broken down old cab out on Concrete Row
  • With its dead-beat drivers and ghost in tow
  • Took a nowhere boulevard out to the desert sun
  • Fired a repeating six asking anyone
  • Not jewellers bums barflops or nuns
  • Saw anything moving or anything creeping
  • Setting down to drinking while they're still sleeping
  • Whole place makes death valley look like Eden
  • Where was I gonna find you,
  • Where was I supposed to look?
  • In some glittering diamond in the valley,
  • Or in the harpoons of your opium hooks?
