You’ve Got To Let Me Know

signThere is another blogger who I think has a similar background in music to me. We often seem to know the same bands. When I saw the theme for today’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY, I thought we might double up with this song. But as that blogger has chosen a completely different track…I could not resist sharing this song with you.

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: COULD/MIGHT/SHOULD/WOULD

I hardly know what to say about this song, except that it is brillllllllliant! It is kind of an anthem nowadays. I am sure you will know it well! But if you don’t – where have you been?

I delighted to feature one rip-roaring, guitar heady, punkalicious phenomenal track! “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?” from The Clash! Are you ready for this?

Darlin’ you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?
If you say that you are mine
I’ll be here ’til the end of time
So you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

It’s always tease tease tease
You’re happy when I’m on my knees
One day is fine and next is black
So if you want me off your back
Well come on and let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
And if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know

This indecision’s buggin’ me (esta indecisión me molesta)
If you don’t want me, set me free (Si no me quieres, librame)
Exactly whom I’m supposed to be (Dime! ¿Qué tengo ser?)
Don’t you know which clothes even fit me? (No sabes que ropas me queda)
Come on and let me know (Pero tienes que decir)
Should I cool it or should I blow? (¿Me debo ir o quedarme?)

Split

(Doble! ¿Me frío o lo soplo?)
(Esperda)
(Rrattarrattarrattaa…)

Should I stay or should I go now? (yo me enfrio o lo soplo)
Should I stay or should I go now? (Yo me enfrio o lo soplo)
If I go there will be trouble (Si me voy, va a haber peligro)
And if I stay it will be double (Si me quedo, es doble)
So you gotta let me know (Pero que tienes que decir)
Should I cool it or should I blow? (¿Me frío o lo soplo?)
Should I stay or should I go now? (¿Me frío o lo soplo?)
If I go there will be trouble (Si me voy, va a haber peligro)
And if I stay it will be double (Si me quedo, es doble)
So you gotta let me know (Pero que tienes que decir)
Should I stay or should I go

    1. This was Jack’s choice:

      But I told him I had already planned to use it in a post. I think it was today’s post actually. It makes me think of my time alone with him so much.

      We love this song. We have a good friend who has sang this on stage as part of her live performances. She nails it! One of our favourite singers.
