rrRoad Trip Mixed Tape: Car Jamming


Get an earful of this one from Sullivan McPig of Pearls Cast Before a McPig

and they say Lauren Bacall is in this one...


Car Jamming
performed by The Clash

Tonight they're closing up the world
N' sweeping smoke from cigarettes
And what is that funky multi-national
Anthem rocking from a thousand
King Kong cassette decks
Then a shyboy from Missouri
Boots blown off in a '60s war
Riding aluminium crutches
Now he knows the welfare kindness n'
Agent Orange color blindness
As we works from door to door
The violence in the carpets
The mirror of his wife (In a car jam)
Drives the slum-bum dweller
To grind his hunting knife (In a car jam)
In homesteads of cigar box-radios
Hive like bees (In a car jam)
The body in the ice
Box has no date for freeeeeze (In a car jam)

[Chorus]
In a car jam

Selling is what selling sells
But only saints of the 7 avenues can sell
The 7 hells
Fanning the drug afflicted leperizing acne
Once inside the executive
He never leaves his home
Gorillas drag their victiims
Hyenas try to sue (In a car jam)
Snakes find grass in concrete
There is no city zoo by (In a car jam)
Ventilation units where towers
Meet the streets (In a car jam)
The ragged stand in bags
Soaking heat up through their feet (In a car jam)

This was the only kindness
And it was accidental too

[Chorus]
In a car jam
In a car jam

Now shaking single engined planes
Traffik-king stereos from Cuba
Buzzed the holy zealot mass

And drowned out Missa Luba
And drowned out Missa Luba
And drowned out Missa Luba
And drowned out Missa Luba
I thought I saw Lauren Bacall
I thought I saw Lauren Bacall (in a car jam)
I swear
Hey fellas
Lauren Bacall (in a car jam)
In a car jam
Yeah I don't believe it
In a car jam
Ah yeah positively absolutely

[Chorus]
In a car jam
In a car jam
In a car jam
In a car jam
In a car jam
