Joe Strummer

Tiden er på speed og i dag, d. 22. december, er det allerede 4 år siden Joe Strummer, strålende lys og tidligere frontfigur i The Clash, faldt for hjerteslag, kun 50 år gammel. Hans musik er dog stadig så levende, at vi i anstændighedens navn markerer både den og Joe Strummer selv her.

THE CALL UP

Its up to you not to heed the call-up
You must not act the way you were brought up
Who knows the reasons why you have grown up?
Who knows the plans or why they were drawn up?

Its up to you not to heed the call-up
I dont wanna die!
Its up to you not to hear the call-up
I dont wanna kill!

For he who will die
Is he who will kill

Maybe I wanna see the wheatfields
Over Kiev and down to the sea

All the young people down the ages
They gladly marched off to die
Proud city fathers used to watch them
Tears in their eyes

There is a rose that I want to live for
Although, God knows, I may not have met her
There is a dance an I should be with her
There is a town unlike any other

Its up to you not to hear the call-up
You must not act the way you were brought up
Who give you work an why should you do it?
At fifty five minutes past eleven
There is a rose…
Yeah!
