The Lyrics

London's boring, we're aware of that now
now the residents there, all want to get out
London's boring, best place in the world?
to most other cities, it doesn't compare
London's boring, cool Britannia sucks
and the talk of Beatlemania, in Liverpools trust
London's boring, claiming it as your thing
nobody thinks they're taking it in

olympics ain't coming, the moneys going in
Lottery-mess-up, there's no funding in the tin
expensive money, just buying a beer
London is frowning and I'm sick of the river

London's boring, the congestion charging zone
forget the vehicles, they move too damn slow
London's boring, big businesses are left
clearing up when those protesters make mess
London's boring, those outside can't work out
they're sure the capitals not what they care about
London's boring, and newspapers decide
thats what people want to hear 'bout in Carlisle

olympics ain't coming, the moneys going in
Lottery-mess-up, there's no funding in the tin
the whole things an error, the Dome 2 we fear
London is frowning and I'm sick of the river

London's boring, it's only too true
I'm sure I'd have left, if only I could do
London's boring, and I'm nearly outside
stuck on Car park known as 'M25'

(there's never been that much I like)

Shouldn't the original be "London's Calling"? Must have been a freudian slip. Or else we know what your next parody will be already! ;-)

I think the Clash have another song on their first album called "London Burning" (Im not going to go through my CDs to check but I think its on the first album)....unfortunatly, this is not a parody of that, this is a parody of "london Calling" of the album with the same name...good job though

I liked it JimA. Specially the line about newspapers deciding what Carlisle needs to know!

Yeah, there is a song called "London's Burning" on the first album...I have it on vinyl. It's a great song.

NONONONONO!!! You were right! It's "London Calling." It's the first track on the album of the same name. The song "London's Burning" was on their first album.
