Hateful

Album: London Calling (1979)
  • Well, I got a friend who's a man
    What man?
    The man who keeps me from the lonely, the only
    He gives me what I need
    What you need? What you got?
    I need it all so badly

    Oh, anything I want he gives it to me
    Anything I want he gives it, but not for free
    It's hateful
    And it's paid for and I'm so grateful to be nowhere

    This year I've lost some friends
    Some friends? What friends?
    I dunno, I ain't even noticed

    You see, I gotta go out again
    Again? My friend
    I gotta see the main man

    Oh, anything I want he gives it to me
    Anything I want he gives it, but not for free
    It's hateful
    And it's paid for and I'm so grateful to be nowhere

    Oh, anything I want he gives it to me
    Anything I want he gives it, but not for free
    It's hateful
    And it's paid for and I'm so grateful to be nowhere

    I killed all my nerves
    My nerves? What swerves?
    And I can't drive so steady, and already

    I've lost my memory
    My mind? Behind!
    I can't see so clearly

    Oh, anything I want he gives it to me
    Anything I want he gives it, but not for free
    Anything I want, anything I want, anything I want, anything I want, anything I wantWriter/s: Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, Topper Headon

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
