  • Yes, it's time for the Dr. Goebbels
    Show!

    There's a tower in the heart of London
    With a radio station right at the top
    They don't make the city beat
    They're making all the action stop

    A long time ago there were pirates
    Beaming waves from the sea
    But now all the stations are silenced
    'Cos they ain't got a government license

    Wanna tell your problems
    Phone in from your bedsit room
    Having trouble with your partner
    Let us all in on the news

    If you wanna hear a record
    Get the word from Aiden Day
    He picks all the hits to play
    To keep you in your place all day

    Capital radio
    In tune with nothing
    Don't touch that dial Writer/s: J. STRUMMER, M. JONES, PAUL SIMMON, TOPPER HEADON
