Joe Strummer – Boogie With Your Children lyrics

Boogie with your children
In peace and love
Sing Marvin Gaye
To the Lord above

Souls that never wear
Are shoes that last forever

I'm yelling at my children
The straitjacket express
I need to find an atom of love
Inside this mess

I, I want to groove

Selling refrigeration
From door to door
Called the signifying monkey
About the killing floor

Grooving is a state of mind
Can you spare a dime?

Boogie with your children
In peace and love
Sing Marvin Gaye
To the Lord above

High high in the sky
Your feets won't feel far from the ground

Well I wait by the signal
Where the traffic go right
You think I'm waiting for a quarter
And you may be right
Well I watch 'em brake and accelerate
Then I watch'em smash into the interstate
I do believe that you don't hear me
Boogie with your children in peace and love
Sing Marvin Gaye to the Lord above.
