London Calling 70705
London calling! London calling! It’s a “Terror Alert”!
Many people are dying! Many people are hurt!
Someone blew up some train cars! They blew up a bus!
Still most of this story’s too secret to discuss…
“Well, the job will be easy, and the pay will be great!
You’ll be helping your country fight the terrorist hate…
You’ll just come to the city, and ride where we say
You’ll be paid when you start and at the end of the day…
You’ll just come from the suburbs like you normally would
You won’t tell nobody from your neighborhood…
Dress like you’re going shopping, sight-seeing around
With a pack on your back to the old ‘Underground’”… (*British subway)
Chorus – Instrumental
“You must keep it all secret, and do your part right!
It’s only a drill… So be cool and polite…
Half your pay’s at the start. You’ll get the rest when you’re done
Tax free cash in two envelopes… It’ll be easy and fun!
Plenty money for travel, for school and things new!
Help your family and friends… That part’s all up to you…
You’ll be helping your country, if you do your job right
You’ll be richly rewarded by the end of the night…”
Were the bombs on the bottom or in the back-packs?
Who were these young Muslims? Did they do the attacks?
Was it like 9/11? Were there drills that went “live”?
We’d like to ask these boys questions… But they did not survive…
There are agents and “assets” in the spy world, it’s true
To gather “intelligence” and to do what they do…
There are “false flag” and “psy war” operations, it’s said
And the only good “patsies” are the ones who are dead!
Change the last line in the last chorus to:
Since it’s “national security”, leave all the questions to us…
