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

    I was walking down the street in East L.A. singing this one day and some kid looked at me sadly and said, "Thanks a lot, I was having a nice day." Sorry about that.

    Sandinista is full of good songs, including this one.

    "Only good song on Sandanista. Discuss." The Call Up is better. And so is the Police on My Back cover. Other than that though -- you're right.

    I finally listened to Sandinista! all the way through recently. It was only then that I realised how good it actually was (warts and all)

    "Only good song on Sandanista. Discuss." That is just ignorant. I could name you 15 - 20 great songs on that album.

    Underrated track, definitely a Clash top 15 song candidate.

    bullshit-for a triple album it had loads of great songs. more good than bad definitely. but think about that-36 songs on one album!
