Intro F

               F 
The sirens' risin'
                      A#
There's a distant blues dance on a crowded street
                        F 
The temperature's a-risin'
A#      
Soon you're gonna be runnin' down 

                   F 
Those burnin' streets, come on
                                          A#                    
The century that's hardly on its feet
                                      F
And the late news breaks early
                                                        A#
Does the sun rise from the west or from the east?
F                                        D#                      A#  F
An' it takes every day to be survivin' in the city


F 
London is burnin'; don't tell the Queen
    A#
Somebody tried to speak garage and they burnt down Bethnal Green
F                
Piccadilly's yearning, like a reggae beat 
A#
Soon you're gonna be runnin' down

                  F
Those burnin' streets, come on
                                                     A#
And you're waitin' for your flag to be unfurled
                                        F
And the late news breaks early
                                                   A#            G#          
So how should life be lived around the world?    (If London is burnin')


An' it takes every day to be survivin' in the city
A#                                                     F
Ready to face that dawn with no pity, come on! 
                   A#  G#                F
Yeah, ah-come on  (London is burnin') 
                   A#  G#                F
Yeah, ah-come on  (London is burnin')

F
  (Soon you're gonna be runnin’ down)
                                              
  (Soon you're gonna be runnin’ down)
                     F
Those burnin' streets, come on!
                                       A#
Does the universal cop have a beat?
                                       F
And the late news breaks early
                                             A#
Did you ever buy that bar on Lucky Street?


F                                      D#
An' it takes every day to be survivin' in the city
A#                                                   F
Ready to face that dawn with no pity, come on!
                   A# G#                F
Yeah, ah-come on (London is burnin')
                   A# G#                F
Yeah, ah-come on (London is burnin')


F                                        A#
Too many guns in this damn town

At the supermarket, you gotta duck down
F                                                A#   G#           
Baby flak jackets on the merry-go-round    (London is burnin')
F                                                A#   G#          
There's too many guns in this damn town    (London is burnin')
F                                                A#   G#          
Baby flak jackets on the merry-go-round    (London is burnin')
F                                        A#     G#          
Too many guns in this damn town        (London is burnin')
F                                                A#   G#          
Baby flak jackets on the merry-go-round    (London is burnin')
