This song describes a boy whose father robs banks, but refuses to harm anybody in the process; he simply loves to live life as a criminal. Unfortunately many people took these lyrics literally, prompting sniffy critics to point out that Joe Strummer's dad was a foreign office diplomat and not actually a bankrobber. 'Bankrobber is an interesting one," Clash guitarist Mick Jones told Daniel Rachel, author of The Art of Noise: Conversations with Great Songwriters. I think my dad was a bankrobber's assistant. There was talk of him driving getaway cars. He was a cab driver but he drove for other people. The songs are like folk songs. They've become like traditional songs.
