lyrics

Desperate times are approaching
Beatlemania’s come undone
Ziggy has fled to Hamburg
And Sammy has purchased his guns

Blue Hawaii is over now
And disco is at our front door
All the kids in the streets have gone
To the club out on 54th

In their polyester shirts
And their Travolta suits and ties
They’re taking all we hold sacred
And they're hanging it out to die

Ring the bells, tell the people
His majesty has fallen
And the torch will be passing
100 punks are calling

The Heads are at CBGB’s
In the UK it’s Strummer and Jones
Then there is Mr. Rotten out
With a few dozen of his punk clones

Blue Hawaii is over now
And disco is at our front door
All the kids in the streets are gone
And they’re dancing at ‘54

And on a Memphis summer
Crying ‘God save the King’
In mourning the death of rock n ‘roll
A thousand of them all sing

Ring the bells, tell the people
His majesty has fallen
And the torch will be passing
100 punks are calling

He’s fallen down, he’s fallen down
His majesty has fallen
He’s fallen down, he’s fallen down
Off the Graceland throne

But they’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
They’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
They’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
They’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘Go kill the disco Queen’
Yeah

Oh they’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
They’re crying out, they’re crying out ‘God Save the King’
