Techno D-Day
(Strummer/Glenn)

Well it was a techno D-day out on Omaha beach
I was a reserve D.J playing Columbian mountain beats
Andres Landero, Ay mi sombrero
Hold onto your hats because we gotta go...

Because the noise inspectors with the sound detectors
Were coming on down the beach
And the councellors wanna pounce on us
There we go disturbing the peace
And the cornish sun had only just begun
To sink into the western sea
So to keep it low so the cops dont know
I spun my Harry Belafonte

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

On a techno D-day, a techno D-day
Out on Omaha beach
Where the troops believe in a life of freedom
And this is all about free speech

The day became night by the campfire light
The crowd began testifying
Using the headphones for a mike, for tenor saw's delight
I sang another new sound is dying

On a techno D-day, a techno D-day
Where the long arm of the law cannot reach
On a techno D-day, a techno D-day
We waited on Omaha beach..
We waited, And we waited

Behind me in the booth was the techno crew
Ready with the crucial beats
Still they said keep it low, spin your calypso
We're still waiting for Babylon to retreat
The crowd was ready to riot, They were sick of being quiet
We're still waiting for the signal to go
Then the walkie talkie spat out the all clear
And the boys hit the decks in full flow, G G G Go Go

On a techno D-day, a techno D-day
Out on Omaha beach
Where the troops believe in a life of freedom
And this is all about free speech
On a techno D-day, a techno D-day
Out on Omaha beach
Where the troops believe in a life of freedom
And this is about free speech
Go Go techno D-day, Go techno D-day
Sometimes you have to get out of reach
It was a techno D-day, a techno D-day
And this is all about free speech
