"Garageland" (1977)

I don't wanna hear about what the rich are doing,
I don't wanna go to where, where the rich are going,
They think they're so clever, they think they're so right,
But the truth is only known by guttersnipes.

Lyrics by Joe Strummer & Mick Jones (The Clash)

From a book review

"Osman's etymologies uncover social and economic prejudices, suggesting that the legacy of slavery remains in the strata of the words we speak." (p. 252)
