Joe Strummer – Get Down Moses lyrics
Once I got to the mountain top, everywhere I could see
Prairie full of lost souls running from the priests of iniquity
Where the hell was Elijah
What do you do when the prophecy came was true

You cannot take the walls of Jericho
Put your lips together and blow
To the very top
Sayin' the truth crystallizes it like jewels in the rock, in the rock

Get down Moses - part another sea
Carve another tablet out of L.S.D.
Get down Moses - out in Tennessee
Get down Moses - down in the street
The blood washing down all the gravel to our feet
Get down Moses - down in the pit

Lying in a green, cross bound field
Crashing on a downtown strip
Looking in the eyes of the diamonds and the spies and the hip
Who's sponsoring the crack ghetto
Who's lecturing who's in the know and in the don't know

You better take the walls of Jericho
Put your lips together and blow
Goin' to the very top
Where the truth crystallizes like jewels, in the rock, in the rock

Get down Moses - from the eagle eyrie
You gotta to make new friends out of old enemies
Get down Moses - back in Tennessee
Get down Moses - down with the dreads
They got a lotta reasoning in a dread head
Get down Moses - down in the street
Get down Moses

Get down Moses - part another sea
Carve another tablet out of L.S.D.
Get down Moses - out in Tennessee
Get down Moses - down in the street
The blood washing down all the gravel to our feet
Get down Moses - down in the pit
Get down Moses
Get down Moses
Get Down Moses

We need to eat, we gotta chew it over with our wisdom teeth
Get down Moses
