  • Back in the garage with my bullshit detector
    Carbon monoxide making sure it's effective
    People ringing up making offers for my life
    I just want to stay in the garage all night

    We're a garage band (oh, oh, oh)
    We come from garageland (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

    Meanwhile things are hotting up in the West End, alright
    Contracts in the offices, groups in the night
    My bumming slumming friends have all got new boots
    And someone just asked me if the group would wear suits

    We're a garage band (oh, oh, oh)
    We come from garageland (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

    I don't want to hear about what the rich are doing
    I don't want to go to where, where the rich are going
    They think they're so clever, they think they're so right
    But the truth is only known by guttersnipes

    We're a garage band (oh, oh, oh)
    We come from garageland (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

    Twenty-two singers, but one microphone
    Back in the garage
    Five guitar players, but one guitar
    Back in the garage
    Complaints, complaints, what an old bag
    Back in the garage, back in the garage
    Back in the garage Writer/s: JOE STRUMMER, MICK JONES, PAUL SIMONON, TOPPER HEADON
