[Verse 1]

C                       F       C
Last night the kids set London alight
               F                 G
Started out in Tottenham and the flames spread through the night
         F               G                    C      CM9/B      F
But they didn't burn the banks down, and they didn't fight the cops
          F                     G                   C
They just burned down their own ends and robbed the shops.

[Verse 2]

C               F                    C
Most of us just stood and watched it burn
     C        F               G
Just ordinary people, who are working hard to earn
        F             G                 C        CM9/B     F
Earning money for the weekend, and some peace to see their folks
         F                   G            C
And last night we watched it all go up in smoke

[Bridge 1]

        Dm                    C             G
Make no mistake this ain't no bullshit insurrection
     C                CM9/B           Am
It's anger mixed with greed without a plan
          Dm                   C             G
But don't pretend you're not a part of the solution
    F                                     G
You can't just keep your head down in the sand

[Chorus 1]

            F                   G
So fuck the cops, and fight the thieves
     F              G          C
Step up defend your own communities

[Verse 3]

      C                F              C
And today don't expect Westminster to care
              C                 F
They pass the laws then hit the suburbs
Where they breathe the cleaner air
      F            G                   C    CM9/B F
In an atmosphere unsullied, by burning cars or by hate
       F                      G            C
To the post codes where there are no sink estates

[Verse 4]

       C                  F          C
But it shouldn't be their problem anyway
                     F                 G             
It's a battle on our doorsteps, and it won't just go away
          F             G              C    CM9/B     F
So if you give a single damn about the city where you live
       F               G                C
You'll step up now and ask what you can give

[Bridge 2]

              Dm                C                   G
Because these kids they are our neighbours, and our children
    C                CM9/B             Am
And if they say that they don't give a damn
     Dm          C                G
It's up to us to show them it's a problem
   F                                       G
To steal the shit you want just 'cause you can

[Chorus 2]

            F                G
So fuck the cops, forget the thieves
     F              G          Am
Step up defend your own communities


         F               G          C     CM9/B  F
Tomorrow we stand together oh we're never on our own
    F                   G           C
Put out the fires, this city is our home
