Intro and Verse:



Listen to the song to work out the change in tempo


Yes, it's time for the Dr. Gobbles Show!

There's a tower in the heart of London
With a radio station right at the top
They don't make the city beat
They're making the action stop

A long time ago there were pirates
Beaming in waves from the sea
But now all the stations are silent
'Cos they ain't got a government licencse

Wanna tell your problems
Phone in from your bedsit room
Having trouble with your partner
Let us all in the good news

If you wanna hear a record
Get the word from A to Z
He picks all the hits to play
To keep you in your place all day

(Capital Radio)
In tune with nothing
(Capital Radio)
In tune with nothing
(Capital Radio)
-Funny noise from Strummer, not actual word-
(Capital Radio)
In your place all day
(Capital Radio)
Just a-lazing around all day
Capital Radio
Ba-ba-ba-ba-bummin' all day
Backstreet a-hear us out
Grab attention go and go against the town
It's such a crime
Is it a game
We ain't got no rights
Slippin' off, slipping off
Slippin' off, slipping off
Slippin' off, slipping off
[Capital Radio backing vocal ends here]
Don't touch that dial!
Don't touch that dial!
Don't touch that dial!
Don't touch that dial!

About the artist behind Capital Radio Tab:

The Clash were an English punk rock band, active from 1976 to 1986, part of the original wave of UK punk.[1][2] Along with punk rock, they experimented with reggae, funk, rap, dub, rock and roll and rockabilly among other roots musics.[3][4] For most of their recording career, The Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar), Paul Simonon (bass) and Nicky "Topper" Headon (drums, percussion).[5] The group disbanded in early 1986, owing to lack of creative control and the loss of Headon in 1982 and Jones in 1983 due to internal friction.

The Clash were a major success in the UK from the release of their debut album. Their third album, London Calling, released in the UK in December 1979, brought them popularity in the United States when it came out there the following year. It received wide critical acclaim; a decade later Rolling Stone magazine declared it the best album of the 1980s.[6]

The Clash's style and rebellious attitude, along with their music, had a far-reaching influence on rock, alternative rock in particular.[7] Their record label's A&R director dubbed them "The Only British Band That Matters," which fans picked up and transformed into "The Only Band That Matters". In January 2003 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[8] The band wanted to play at the event, but were prevented by Joe Strummer's death in December 2002. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked The Clash #30 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[9]
