Joe Strummer – Dum Dum Club lyrics
This is New York, boy
We wanna hear you talk, boy
This is New York, boy
You ain't never gonna walk

Downtown they got some guy
Shot forty-seven people on a PCP high
Uptown they got a team from Queens
Busy beating people through a mean machine, yeow

You had a shot at a thing called love
In the Hollywood hills
You can't help but follow that love
Even if it kills

This is New York, boy
Murder one in court, boy
This is New York, boy
You ain't ever gonna walk

You were a rebel in a drum town, son
Somebody loaded up the plastic gun
I seen that monkey got you shooting in your blood
Using bullets from the dumb dumb club

You had a shot at a thing called love
In the Hollywood hills
You can't help but follow that love
Even if it kills

You had a shot at at thing called love
Like shooting up on pills
You can't help but follow that love
Even if it kills

You can't make this deal son
This means your life is ruined
You can't play with knives
The junkie's still alive

You had a shot at a thing called love
In the Hollywood hills
You can't help but follow that love
Even if it kills

You had a shot at a thing called love
Like shooting up on pills
You can't help but follow that love
Even if it kills

You gotta follow that love
You gotta follow that love
Yes, follow that love
Follow that love, yeow

Even if it kills
Even if it kills
Hey, even if it kills
