i went out late to have some fun
the pub was dark and empty
beauty this place i didn’t know
so i got to know Wendy
a smell like death, teeth like a horse
her bra was made in hell
yelling voice, hairy legs
man i love that girl

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

i ordered her a coffee
she couldn’t read the menu
so i said to her let’s find another venue
she farted but i didn’t mind exotic smells
digging in her nose she rang my bell

a smell like death, teeth like a horse
her bra was made in hell
yelling voice, hairy legs
man i love that girl

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

woke up by her smoking - i had no choice
wanted to escape - i was caught by her voice
hey man, do you feel alright?
girl i’m fine, but bring on the night

a smell like death, teeth like a horse
her bra was made in hell
yelling voice, hairy legs
man i love that girl

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

you know i don’t care
about the colour of your hair
hey babe, it’s alright
if you turn down the light

here is the band this is our song
we’ll have a party all night long
smoking drinking all night thru’
we act as people expect us to

here today to rock this town
dancing acting like a clown
and what you see is what you get
girls we want your t-shirts drenched in sweat

pretty girls are everywhere
about their guys we don’t care
so you all came to see the show
there’s one thing that we wanna know

are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or alive? - take a chance take a dance
are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or are you alive

we do our job by day and night
we’ve seen all bars and kentucky fried
a thousand miles in a row
just to play tonight’s show

speed tickets cause drunken nights
police controls we don’t like
girls if you like us give us a kiss
tell your boys to take a piss

pretty girls are everywhere
about their guys we don’t care
so you all came to see the show
there’s one thing that we wanna know

are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or alive? - take a chance take a dance
are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or are you alive

pretty girls are everywhere
about their guys we don’t care
so you all came to see the show
there’s one thing that we wanna know

are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or alive? - take a chance take a dance
are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or are you alive

are you dead or alive?
are you dead or alive?
are you dead or alive?
are you dead? are you alive?

dead? are you alive?
dead? are you dead or alive?

i’m not an ordinary boy
but i could be your little toy
just bring me little honey
and i will stick on you

(ich klebe an dir fest)

don’t want no zero-bonds
nor do i need some investment-fonds
no golden rings
just give me candy
and i will stick on you

(ich klebe an dir fest)

i get my kicks out of crispy pan cakes
i would die for a custard cream
and if you wanna catch my milka heart
there’s only one thing you have to do

just bring me little muffins
or a marshmallow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

biscuit cake
or a delicious season’s flake
just add a little honey
and i will stick on you

(ich klebe an dir fest)

salt and vinegar chips
bewitch me more than politics
and if they’re spicey and red hot
i will stick on you
i get my kicks out of crispy pan cakes
i would die for a custard cream
and if you wanna catch my milka heart
there’s only one thing you have to do

just bring me little muffins
or a marshmallow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

candy
just bring me a little honey
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

chocolate chips
make me go out of my mind my dear
be careful if you have some honey
cause i might stick on you

(ich klebe an dir fest)

i’m a maniac
if you play with my cherry cake
i would rob just for a donut
or a hot chocolate

i get my kicks out of crispy pan cakes
i would die for a custard cream
and if you wanna catch my milka heart
there’s only one thing you have to do

just bring me little muffins
or a marshmallow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

candy
just bring me a little honey
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

muffins
or a marshmellow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

candy
just bring me a little honey
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

muffins
or a marshmellow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

summertime is back in town
time to get your scooter out
winter days are far away
you're take it for a ride

show them all your custom bits
get your chromate gats polished
seaside runs will come again
and you will meet all your friends

your scooter looks just like a mess
although you tried your very best
somebody stole your pork pie hat
your girlfriend moved to switzerland
and i beg she?s got a new boyfriend

soundsystems are back in town
blasting out the sharpest sound
club events and all-nighters
getting dressed up really cool

having fun and getting pissed
is what you have so long missed
take your chance and join the fun
and keep on dancin' all night long

your scooter looks just like a mess
although you tried your very best
somebody stole your pork pie hat
your girlfriend moved to switzerland
and i beg she?s got a new boyfriend

summertime is back in town

i’m going pissed to church and sing
the russian national hymn
i like to fart in libraries
and i do it with a grin

fuck fuck fuck my best friend’s girl
and tell him she’s a slag
and in a crowded aeroplane
i love to use the bag

i’m mean, i’m bad, i lie to you
i never tell the truth
set fire to your bed at night
and i shit into your boot

so if you ever should think for yourself
how nice it would be oh so nice
rip off your sister’s teddy-bear
stay rude - that’s my advice

selling dope to teenage kids
is the biggest fun
the money i get out of it
enough to buy a gun

i steal old ladies handbags
and I drink the last beer
i nick my bosses’ jaguar
and sell it much to dear

i’m mean, i’m bad, i lie to you
i never tell the truth
set fire to your bed at night
and i shit into your boot

so if you ever should think for yourself
how nice it would be oh so nice
rip off your sister’s teddy-bear
stay rude - that’s my advice

have you heard the news today?
can you believe what they say?
the truth from the screen is hard to find
so come on click on your mind
you suck those informations in
tv terror, video games
there’s always noise and trouble all around
so clean up your voice and shout out loud

talk
you can’t come together if you refuse to talk
you remain a stranger
friendship is a lie
if you don’t talk

nothing in life is sure
everything can happen all the time
as long as silly people rule the world
this advice can’t be so wrong

talk
you can’t come together if you refuse to talk
you remain a stranger
friendship is a lie
if you don’t talk (if you don’t talk)

express it with your body
dance with your brain
speak with your heart
open up your mind

and talk
you can’t come together if you refuse to talk
you remain a stranger
friendship is a lie
if you don’t talk (if you don’t talk)

have you heard the news today?
can you believe what they say?
the truth from the screen is hard to find
so come on click on your mind

talk
you can’t come together if you refuse to talk
you remain a stranger
friendship is a lie
if you don’t talk (if you don’t talk)

if you don’t talk
you can’t come together if you refuse to talk
you remain a stranger
friendship is a lie
if you don’t talk

if you don’t talk
if you don’t talk
if you don’t talk
if you don’t...

we did ska and bluebeat and you were going nuts
you might think ska music is all we've got
this goes out to funk and soul
to hip-hop, punk and socca
blue suede shoes and reggae roots
get down do the ska

folks you love to skank down that's okay
but don't forget there's lots of styles today
we are just a nutty tribe
of one great musical nation
jazz and blues and rock'n'roll
they gave us inspiration - inspiration

rude vibrations, vibrations - get off your seat
rude vibrations, vibrations - listen to the beat
rude vibrations, vibrations - give yourself a treat
rude vibrations, vibrations - move your skanking feet

porkpie hats and dms that's okay
we guess rude-boy-style is here to stay
and if your neighbour is a coloured guy
take things as they are
punks and dreads and teddy boys
dig this crazy skaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

rude vibrations, vibrations - get off your seat
rude vibrations, vibrations - listen to the beat
rude vibrations, vibrations - give yourself a treat
rude vibrations, vibrations - move your skanking feet

we are just a nutty tribe
of one great musical nation
jazz and blues and rock'n'roll
they gave us inspiration

rude vibrations, vibrations - get off your seat
rude vibrations, vibrations - listen to the beat
rude vibrations, vibrations - give yourself a treat
rude vibrations, vibrations - move your skanking feet

rude vibrations, vibrations
rude vibrations, vibrations
rude vibrations, vibrations
rude vibrations

i met her on a party on a summernight
i couldn’t believe my eyes she looked so nice
but all she did was playing hard to get
dancing to the rhythm she drove me mad

i tried so hard but all in vain
she looked so fine
i knew i should make her mine

rude girl - so what’s your game
rude girl - i didn’t know your name
rude girl - it could have been my chance
rude girl - but all i could do was dance

a pair of black loafers on her feet
with her dark hair cut so neat
she knew all the songs and danced around
the most beautiful girl to be found

i tried so hard but all in vain
she looked so fine
i knew i should make her mine

rude girl - so what’s your game
rude girl - i didn’t know your name
rude girl - it could have been my chance
rude girl - but all i could do was dance

i couldn’t stand it any longer
so i made up my mind - took me another pint
i’ll always remember how she smiled at me
and how we then kissed finally

i tried so hard but not in vain
she looked so nice
i knew now that she is my

rude girl - so what is your game
rude girl - i didn’t know your name
rude girl - it could have been my chance
rude girl - but all i could do was dance

mickey mouse in Moscow pornos sold at GUM’s
the russians all go crazy, their government went punk
gorbatchev wears DMs, gromyko looks real mosh
instead the international hymn Bob Marley and Peter Tosh

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

police are growing dreadlocks, the army’s on vacation
the KGB smokes homegrown grass like the rest of the soviet nation
red square full of burger kings, komsmolski kids on dope
gimme gimme vodka all the russians sing, abandon any hope

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

meanwhile back in the western block russian fashion’s up to date
join your local brioska shop before it is too late
throw away your trendy clothes, get yourself new gear
furcoats, feltboots, furcaps - perestroika is here

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

you say you’re in – and you’re out
i can’t trust you there’s no doubt
when you say you call me i can’t be sure you don’t
you say you’re sick – when you’re well
you say you love me and you sell
the ring i gave you, and what’s this all about

i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
oooh, i can’t take this anymore

you say you drive and then you drink
you say my best friend is a wimp
and then i find his wallet in your car

you say you never go out at night
but when we go out side by side
they know your name in every bar

i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
oooh, i can’t take this anymore

i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
oooh, i can’t take this anymore

you say you’re in – and you’re out
i can’t trust you there’s no doubt
when you say you call me i can’t be sure you don’t

i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
oooh, i can’t take this anymore

i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
oooh, i can’t take this anymore

i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
i wanna know what’s going on behind your door
