garageland lyrics – clash

back in the garage with my bullsh*t detector
carbon monoxide makin’ sure it’s effective
people ringin’ up makin’ offers for my life
but i just wanna stay in the garage all night
(wanna stay)

we’re a garage band
(aah)
we come from garageland
(aah, aah)

meanwhile things are hottin’ up in the west end alright
contracts in the offices, groups in the night
my b*mmin’ slummin’ friends have all got new boots
someone just asked me if the group would wear suits

we’re a garage band
(aah)
we come from garageland
(aah, aah)

i don’t wanna hear about what the rich are doing?
i don’t wanna go to where, where the rich are going?
they think they’re so clever, they think they’re so right
but the truth is only known by guttersnipes

we’re a garage band
(aah)
we come from garageland
(aah, aah)

twenty two singers
one microphone
back in the garage
five guitar players
one guitar
back in the garage
complaints, complaints
what an old bag?
back in the garage

back in the garage
back in the garage
