Bankrobber Lyrics

Artist: The Clash
Album: Clash On Broadway

(Strummer/Jones)

MY DADDY WAS A BANKROBBER
BUT HE NEVER HURT NOBODY
HE JUST LOVED TO LIVE THAT WAY
AND HE LOVED TO STEAL YOUR MONEY

SOME IS RICH, AND SOME IS POOR
THAT'S THE WAY THE WORLD IS
BUT I DON'T BELIEVE IN LYING BACK
SAYlN' HOW BAD YOUR LUCK IS

SO WE CAME TO JAZZ IT UP
WE NEVER LOVED A SHOVEL
BREAK YOUR BACK TO EARN YOUR PAY
AN' DON'T FORGET TO GROVEL

THE OLD MAN SPOKE UP IN A BAR
SAID I NEVER BEEN IN PRISON
A LIFETIME SERVING ONE MACHINE
IS TEN TIMES WORSE THAN PRISON

IMAGINE IF ALL THE BOYS IN JAIL
COULD GET OUT NOW TOGETHER
WHADDA YOU THINK THEY'D WANT TO SAY TO US?
WHILE WE WAS BEING CLEVER

SOMEDAY YOU'LL MEET YOUR ROCKING CHAIR
COS THAT'S WHERE WE'RE SPINNING
THERE'S NO POINT TO WANNA COMB YOUR HAIR
WHEN IT'S GREY AND THINNING

RUN RABBIT RUN
STRIKE OUT BOYS, FOR THE HILLS
I CAN FIND THAT HOLE IN THE WALL
AND I KNOW THAT THEY NEVER WILL

"the shit", MARK, is an american slang term for something great...thusly, this song is "the shit" and I'll never forget the first time I heard it. IT ROCKS!!!
by Che on 2/6/2009 1:00pm
Song is good...but RockNRolla is just a pale copy of Lock, stock an 2 smokin barels, Snatch and Revolver...
by jonny rotten you cheeky bastard on 2/8/2009 9:03pm
good song... fueled by drugs and the 3 instruments to keep it going... all and all jhonny is a real ROCKINROLLA
by khekshial on 2/12/2009 5:39am
michael is the ultimate fucking shit
by Viktor on 2/12/2009 7:40am
@ lifeslong: You're so right! Actually it was from that movie i found this song. I've listened to clash for a very long time but didn't know that they've done this song. Perfect in every way!
by Tbilisi on 2/17/2009 11:47am
one of my fav songs, and Guy Ritchie is very good in selecting music for the movies, even though in my opinion RocknRolla can't be compared to lock stock or even snatch.. its still OK....
by C9 on 2/28/2009 12:48pm
Classic Clash tune, always loved their reggae influence. Joe Strummer was The MAN!
by DOC on 3/1/2009 3:48pm
