The Lyrics

Oh man, you got to let us know
Why he really had to go.
If you say that you don't know
I won't believe you, no, no, no
So you gotta let us know
Why he really had to go.

Give truth, truth, truth
dar verdad, verdad, verdad
Before I give you a boot
Yo dar una patada
You say one thing and then another
Tu decir una cosa y en otro mas
I say this with the fans the others
Yo decir este con hinchas
Well come on and let us know
Nosotros tenemos que desir
Why he really had to go
Por que el pasa enfilar

Why did Strummer have to go now?
Why did Strummer have to go now?
He was here and there was trouble
Now that has increased to double
So come on and let us know
Why he really had to go

This question is now bugging me
Esta interrogante me molesta
It will never set me free
Lo estare nunca librame
What was the cause supposed to be?
Que causa supponer estar?
Well that answer won't fit me
Respuesta no me tomar
Give the truth and let us know
Nosotros tenemos que desir
Why he really had to go?
Por que el pasa enfilar

Why did Strummer have to go?
Yo tengo conocer
He was here and there was trouble
El aqui y alli problema
Now that has increased to double
Que pasar incremento doble
So you gotta let us know
Nosotros tenemos que desir
Why he really had to go?
Yo tengo conocer

A fitting tribute to a true punk pioneer. Happy holidays!

Joe Strummer will be missed...when i heard he died on Monday, I listened to London Calling at least 5 times in a row (And thats not a short album!)

Next month will mark the first anniversary of Strummer's death. On the date, I will huddle in a corner and cry whilst playing "The Clash" nonstop all day. I'll probably wear out the vinyl by day's end.

Joe Strummer was an original punk pionner, but too bad he isn't around anymore. He Will be sadly missed by his followers and the people around him, even me. I could not believe he died, although my mother told me last year in Dec.2002 or Jan.2003.
