Altered Lyrics : The Clash : I'm Not Drowned
All altered lyrics by Zoe O'Brien zobrien@rocketmail.com

I'm Not Drowned
(I'm Not Down , from London Calling)

I like singing this version.

If it's true, a rich man is the plumber
He overcharges, from day to day
Then what do all the poor do when their pipes
Begin to spray, and they can't pay?

I've been flooded out, I've been washed 'bout
But I'm not drowned, no, I'm not drowned
Toilet's backed up, floor's messed up
And I'm not drowned, I'm not drowned

On my own I faced a sink of stinking
Sewage spills, oh
When my pumps quit pumping and I saw my feet in...
I sure did run, it was not fun

I've been flooded out, I've been washed 'bout
But I'm not drowned, no, I'm not drowned
Toilet's backed up, floor's messed up
And I'm not drowned, I'm not drowned

And I've lived that kind of day
When none of water will drain away
It goes round and round all on the floor
Round and round and round some more
Depression
But I know there'll be some day
When I can sweep everything out of the way
Like my carpets, all drying up
Nice clean floor, I'm not giving up

So you walk around and think that you're the driest
In the world, the whole wide world
But you're floors away from where it gets all flooded
You ain't been here.
