Safe European Home
The Clash

Well, I just got back and I wish I'd never leave now (where'd ya go?)
Who dat Martian arrival at the airport, yeah? (where'd ya go?)
How many local dollars for a local anesthetic? (
where'd ya go?
)
The Johnny on the corner wasn't very sympathetic (where'd ya go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe European home
Don't want to go back there again

Wasn't I lucky, wouldn't it be loverly? (where'd ya go?)
Send us all cards, have a laying-in on Sunday (where'd ya go?)
I was there for two weeks, so how come I never tell, now? (
where'd ya go?
)
That natty dread drink at the Sheraton hotel, yeah (where'd ya go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe European home
Don't want to go back there again

They got the sun, and they got the palm trees (where'd ya go?)
They got the weed, and they got the taxis (where'd ya go?)
Whoa, the harder they come, the home of ol' bluebeat (
where'd ya go?
)
I'd stay and be a tourist but I can't take the gunplay where'd ya go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe European home
Don't want to go back there again

What?
Rudie come from Jamaica, Rudie can't fail
Rudie come from Jamaica, Rudie can't fail
Rudie come from Jamaica, 'cause Rudie can't fail
Rudie come From Jamaica, Rudie can't fail (European home)
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can't fail (European home)
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can't fail (
European home
)
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can't fail (European home)
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can't fail (European home)
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can't fail (
European home)
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can't fail (European home)
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can't fail (
European home)
Rudie come From Jamaica, Rudie can't fail (
explosive European home
)
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can't fail (twenty-four track European home)
Elder come and a-Rudie go, no one knows where the policeman's go
