Living In Fame - The Clash

words to study

So you've got to live up to your name

Or else I'll put you to shame... Listen!

If you say you a selector

You a fe have good selection

A-and I say if you say you a de special

Man I say I want to know your potential

You a say you a madness

You a say you a de best

But when I put you 'pon you feet

A-some a-some a say you can't play de beat

And I hear you say a Clash a you ruler

Say a Clash sound cooler, eh!

Say a Clash sound sweeter

And now-a-days man a measure mile in a metre, eh!

Live up to your name

Or else you die in shame

A-and a so me say fe live up to your name

A so me tell you say you die in shame

Some a dem a bodysnatcher

Some a dem a barracuda, eh!

But who a know fe me Jah Jah

Fe me Jah a me creator, eh!

Flying saucers, rock-and-roll

Natty Dread a fe be in control

It's all in the whirlwind

I say you've gone with the blockhead

A-and I say me say dat some a dem a Sex Pistol

Nipple erectors
