The Prisoner

This song is by The Clash and appears…

The Prisoner meets the Muppet hi-fi
North of Watford junction
We get in but we don't have fun
And we leave before the truncheons
Back to watch the day to day
Saga of working people
Hanging out the washing, clipping coupons
And generally being decent

Johnny Too Bad meets Johnny B. Goode
In the charing cross road
The only thing that happened today
Says the west end jungle code
And all the Germans and all the French
Jam themselves down the tube
And re-enact the second world war
While the rude boys get rude

And I look to my left
And I look to my right
And I'm looking for a man
I'm looking for a sign
I don't wanna be the Prisoner
I don't wanna be the Prisoner
I don't wanna be the Prisoner
I don't wanna be the Prisoner

The Prisoner lives in Camden town
Selling revolution
The Prisoner loads his tracking arm up
with self disillusion
Your mother does the washing up
Your old man digs the garden
You're only free to dodge the cops
And bunk the train to stardom

And I look to my left
And I look to my right
And I'm looking for a man
I'm looking for a sign
I don't wanna be the Prisoner
I don't wanna be the Prisoner
I don't wanna be the Prisoner
I don't wanna be the Prisoner
