London calling to the faraway towns
Now war is declared and battle come down London calling to the underworld Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls London calling, now don't look to us Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust London calling, see we ain't got no swing 'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in Meltdown expected, the wheat is growin' thin Engines stop running, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I, I live by the river  London calling to the imitation zone Forget it, brother, you can go it alone London calling to the zombies of death Quit holding out and draw another breath London calling and I don't want to shout But when we were talking I saw you nodding out London calling, see we ain't got no high Except for that one with the yellowy eye

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in Engines stop running, the wheat is growin' thin
A nuclear era, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I, I live by the river 
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in Engines stop running, the wheat is growin' thin
A nuclear era, but I have no fear London is drowning, and I, I live by the river 
Now get this
 London calling, yes, I was there, too
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true! London calling at the top of the dial
And after all this, won't you give me a smile?

I never felt so much a' like a'like a'like
