Small town, small minded
Live well within your means
But don't cross forbidden barriers
Stay cosy in your "Green Belt" dreams
Beware cos in amongst you
Modern thinkers strain to break the ties
Ignore them - How can the see cleary with such youthful eyes?

London calling - London calling
On a waelength of its own
This is London calling
Into the twilight zone
London calling - London calling
Across the hinterlands
This is London calling
Try a taste of city life young man

Controlled - Contented
You're theirs to call their own
The prospects looming large
Must go there - Can't be shown
A generations's young and hungry minds
Are drawn together in one place
Arriving eager from the stations
And the motorways

London calling - London calling
On a wavelength of its own
This is London calling
Into the twilight zone
London calling - London calling
Across the hinterlands
This is London calling
Try a taste of city life young man

London calling - London calling
On a wavelength of its own
This is London calling
Into the twilight zone
London calling - London calling
Across the hinterlands
This is London calling
Try a taste of city life young man
