I don't think I ever heard this song before. Never had a copy of my own of Give 'em Enough Rope.

Here's a live video of them performing it 1980 in New Jersey.

Stay Free.


We met when we were in school
Never took no shit from no one, we weren't fools.
The teacher says we're dumb
We're only having fun
We piss on everyone...
In the classroom

When we got thrown out I left without much fuss
An' weekends We'd go dancing
Down Streatham on the bus

You always made me laugh,
Got me in bad fights,
playing pool all night,
Smokin' Menthol

I practiced daily in my room
You were down the Crown planning your next move
Go on a nicking spree,
Hit the wrong guy,
Each of you get three...
Years in Brixton!

I did my very best to write
How was Butlins?
Were the screws too tight?
When you lot get out,
We're gonna hit the town,
We'll burn it fuckin' down...
To a cinder!

'Cos years have passed and things have changed
And i move anyway i wanna go!
I'll never forget the feeling i got
When i heard that you were home!
An' I'll never forget the smile on my face
'Cos i knew where you would be!
An' if you're in the Crown tonight,
Have a drink on me,
But go easy... Step lightly... Stay free...

I think this is the song that Mick Jones is singing in a studio in the movie Rude Boy. Great song.

That's because he's trolling. Ruined the whole forum.

She's embarrassing herself, not pissing people off. Now quit ruining the damn forum so all the quitters can finally return home. It'll be just like the old days!

I doubt they will return, they will go from one message board to the next, consuming everything the find & leave behind something the would never want to look at ever again.

Kadoos to you tho! Very Happy
