  • Down on the corner under the railway
    I hear the old people saying
    It was better without you babe
    It was better without

    You want to live on Shouting Street
    Watch your Punjabi
    You want to bop it on Shouting Street
    Lay off me Biriani

    Now take my motor - Now that's a bargain
    No M.O.T ans the what sit needs welding
    Tell ya who's a-gonna fix it for you
    Tell ya who's a-gonna fix it for you

    Take it down to Shouting Street
    There'll be a geezer
    He's gotta shack on Shouting Street
    One greasy geezer

    He's got a real sideline from Scandinavia
    Where they understand things of that nature
    Don't a-tell that you got it from him
    Oh don't tell that you got it from him

    Say you got it out on Shouting Street
    Say you found it in the garbage
    Say you got it out on Shouting Street
    Say you got it from Jim Jarmusch

    Let me rock it out on Shouting Street
    Just like Eddie Cochran
    We've see rough boys born of this manor
    Always doing their nuts when they ain't got spanners

    But just you wait till they've been away
    Just you wait till they've been away
    They'll be back down Shouting Street
    Selling lady shavers

    They'll be back on Shouting Street
    They got good behavior
    Oh let me rock it out on Shouting Street
    And borrow money from me neighbors

    Oh let me rick it out on Shouting Street
    In fifty seven flavors Writer/s: JOE STRUMMER, LONNIE JOSEPH MARSHALL, ZANDER SCHLOSS
