quando o rap ainda o não era, joe strummer escreveu um...
e a banda mais improvável de todas gravou os 7 magníficos

Ring! Ring! It's 7:00 A.M.! 
Move y'self to go again 
Cold water in the face 

Brings you back to this awful place 
Knuckle merchants and you bankers, too 
Must get up an' learn those rules 
Weather man and the crazy chief 
One says sun and one says sleet 
A.M., the F.M. the P.M. too 
Churning out that boogaloo 
Gets you up and gets you out 
But how long can you keep it up? 
Gimme Honda, Gimme Sony 
So cheap and real phony 
Hong Kong dollars and Indian cents 
English pounds and Eskimo pence 
You lot! What? 
Don't stop! Give it all you got! 
You lot! What? 
Don't stop! Yeah! 
Working for a rise, better my station 
Take my baby to sophistication 
She's seen the ads, she thinks it's nice 
Better work hard - I seen the price 
Never mind that it's time for the bus 
We got to work - an' you're one of us 
Clocks go slow in a place of work 
Minutes drag and the hours jerk 
"When can I tell 'em wot I do? 
In a second, maaan...oright Chuck!" 
Wave bub-bub-bub-bye to the boss 
It's our profit, it's his loss 
But anyway lunch bells ring 
Take one hour and do your thanng! 
What do we have for entertainment? 
Cops kickin' Gypsies on the pavement 
Now the news - snap to attention! 
The lunar landing of the dentist convention 
Italian mobster shoots a lobster 
Seafood restaurant gets out of hand 
A car in the fridge 
Or a fridge in the car? 
Like cowboys do - in T.V. land 
You lot! What? Don't stop. Huh? 
So get back to work an' sweat some more 
The sun will sink an' we'll get out the door 
It's no good for man to work in cages 
Hits the town, he drinks his wages 
You're frettin', you're sweatin' 
But did you notice you ain't gettin' anywhere? 
Don't you ever stop long enough to start? 
To take your car outta that gear 
Don't you ever stop long enough to start? 
To get your car outta that gear 
Karlo Marx and Fredrich Engels 
Came to the checkout at the 7-11 
Marx was skint - but he had sense 
Engels lent him the necessary pence 
What have we got? Yeh-o, magnificence!! 
Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi 
Went to the park to check on the game 
But they was murdered by the other team 
Who went on to win 50-nil 
You can be true, you can be false 
You'll be given the same reward 
Socrates and Milhous Nixon 
Both went the same way - through the kitchen 
Plato the Greek or Rin Tin Tin 
Who's more famous to the billion millions? 
News Flash: Vacuum Cleaner Sucks Up Budgie 
(fucking long, innit?)
