Kobo Town

Joe the Paranoiac

LYRIC

[Verse 1]
Come let me tell you about my friend Joe
He spends all day sitting by the radio
Tell him to come out but he won't go
He only waiting for the bomb to blow
He said some weapons missing and they don't know where
They went and one of them might be nuclear
And unconfirmed reports have confirmed his fears
That today is the day something go happen here

[Chorus]
Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling
You hear the sirens sing
Run for cover the walls are tumbling
Dong-a-long, dong-a-long
Shout it round the town
The ground is shaking and the sky is falling down
Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling
You hear the sirens sing
Run for cover the walls are tumbling
Dong-a-long, dong-a-long
Shout it around
The ground is shaking and the sky is falling down

[Verse 2]
They have a satellite watching above his head
A next camera set up by his bed
When he talks on the phone they know what he said
You feel all this would have the man upset
But he says this he happily endures
Because nothing else will help him sleep secure
And the whole while he feeling reassured
I feel that Joe is mistaking the disease for the cure

[Chorus]
Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling
You hear the sirens sing
Run for cover the walls are tumbling
Dong-a-long, dong-a-long
Shout it round the town
The ground is shaking and the sky is falling down
Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling
You hear the sirens sing
Run for cover the walls are tumbling
Dong-a-long, dong-a-long
Shout it around
The ground is shaking and the sky is falling down

[Verse 3]
You think Joe would have felt a fool
When the bomb he found was just a plumber's tool
When the noise in the night was the neighbor mule
The training camp he reported was a Sunday school
When the anthrax he took down to the police
Turned out to be an old hunk of mouldy cheese
You think this would put the man mind at ease
But he can smell a dirty bomb in a plate of rice and peas

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 4]
Joe is sure that his neighbor Samuel
Belongs to a sleeper cell
And when he talks with Ramlogan in the road
He feel he giving orders in a secret code
And if you hesitate them to believe
He will declare you and them to be in league
And from then on watch your tail
Or you might be going Guantanamo on a holiday

[Chorus]
Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling
You hear the sirens sing
Run for cover the walls are tumbling
Dong-a-long, dong-a-long
Shout it round the town
The ground is shaking and the sky is falling down
Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling
You hear the sirens sing
Run for cover the walls are tumbling
Dong-a-long, dong-a-long
Shout it around
The ground is shaking and the sky is falling down
