Midnight to six man

for the first time from jamaica

dillinger and leroy smart

delroy wilson cool operator


ken boothe

for uk pop reggae

with backing band sound system

and if they've got anything to say

there's many black ears hear to listen


but it was four tops all night

with encores from stage right

there's charges from the bass

knives to the treble


but on stage they ain't got no roots rock rebel

but on stage they ain't got no

roots, rock and rebel


cause it won't get you anywhere

fooling with the gun

the british army is waiting out there

and it weighs 1500 tons


white youth, black youth

better find another solution

why not phone up, robin hood

and ask him for some, wealth distribution


punk rocker, in the uk

they won't notice anyway

they're all too busy, fighting

for a good place, under the lighting


the new groups are not concerned

with what there is to be learned

they got burton suits

huh, you think it's funny?

turning rebellion into money


all over people changing their vote

just like their overcoats

if adolph hitler, rode in today

they send a limousine anyway


i'm the all night

drug prowling wolf

who looks so sick in the sun

i'm the white man, in the palais

just going, looking for fun


only looking for fun

oh, please mister, just leave me alone


i'm only, looking for fun
