Someone lights a cigarette while riding in a car
Some ol' guy takes a swig and passes back the jar
But where they were last night no one can remember
Somebody got murdered, goodbye, for keeps, forever

Somebody got murdered
Somebody's dead forever

And you're minding your own business carrying spare change
You wouldn't cosh a barber, you're hungry all the same
I've been very tempted to grab it from the till
I've been very hungry but not enough to kill

Somebody got murdered
Somebody's dead forever

Somebody got murdered his name cannot be found
A small stain on the pavement, tey'll scrub it off the ground
As the daily crowd disperses, no one says that much
Somebody got murdered and it left me with a touch

Somebody got murdered
Somebody's dead forever

Sounds like murder, those shouts, are they drunk, down below?
Sounds like murder, those screams ,are they drunk, down below?
It's late, and my watch stopped some time ago
Sounds like murder, those screams, are they drunk, down below?

Songwriters
STRUMMER, JOE / JONES, MICK
