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?

rum and coca-cola all day long
calypso and reggae till the morning comes
i get all the girls and i don’t tell you no trash
life ain’t a bore if got some cash

i’m fine all day just feeling cool
splishing and splashing in my swimming pool
the butler brings the telephone
my friends deliver fifty pounds of cocaine round noon

rum and coca-cola all day long
calypso and reggae till the morning comes
i get all the girls and i don’t tell you no trash
life ain’t a bore if got some cash

the mafia dudes pop in for lunch
how they earn their bucks, hey, i’ve got no hunch
the news say another addict died today
sad world out there - but my account’s o.k.

rum and coca-cola all day long
calypso and reggae till the morning comes
i get all the girls and i don’t tell you no trash
life ain’t a bore if got some cash

me i like to party on my country estate
the chicks all love me and i’m feeling great

rum and coca-cola all day long
calypso and reggae till the morning comes
i get all the girls and i don’t tell you no trash
life ain’t a bore if got some cash

rum and coca-cola
oh rum and coca-cola
rum and coca-cola
oh rum and coca-cola

sweetheart i see you everyday
baby but i don’t know what to say

girl you’re my sweet desire
angel i’m burning like fire
sweetheart sleepless nights without you

life ain’t much fun these days
in such a peaceful place
it’s boring everywhere i go
it’s hard to see a fight
what can i do tonight
i really need a splatter show

the old romans used to know what’s good
live shows in the circus men as lion’s food

skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
sadists have more fun get yourself a gun

skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
sadists have more fun get yourself a gun

the middle age was great
burning witches iron maids
people had a real good time
on the market place
people died in many ways
and all for free - ain’t that fine?

the old romans used to know what’s good
live shows in the circus men as lion’s food

skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
sadists have more fun get yourself a gun

skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
sadists have more fun get yourself a gun

some get excited watching sex
i get excited watching legs
when they’re ripped off lying on the street
accidents on motorways
people dying in a race
that gets me into heat

the old romans used to know what’s good
live shows in the circus men as lion’s food

skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
sadists have more fun get yourself a gun

skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
sadists have more fun get yourself a gun

skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
skank it up do the chainsaw reggae
sadists have more fun get yourself a gun

tell me if i'm dreaming
ooh i can't believe my eyes
or is it just an illusion
is my brain telling me lies

ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
walking down the street
ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
she's got everything i need

and my heartbeat's going fast
but i'm not the only one
at the windows in the neighborhood
the panic's going on

ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
walking down the street
ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
she's got everything i need

watching every step she makes
is like lightning in the sky
the perfect way she moves her body
makes me wanna cry

ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
walking down the street
ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
she's got everything i need

ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
walking down the street
ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
she's got everything i need

sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl

i go out to dance all night
sniff cocaine cause that’s alright
drink champagne my girls are nice
i dress up like miami vice
my car is fast my glasses are black
lobster is my favourite snack

so life goes by and i bore myself to death
there is that one thing that i need to have

i want more fun
i want more fun
i want more fun
i want more fun

surfing drinking skiing dancing
got no time left for romancing
driving cars till they are crashed
when i’ve been smoking to much hash
i’ve got some yacht in italy
i’ve got a house right by the sea

so life goes by and i bore myself to death
there is that one thing that i need to have

i want more fun
i want more fun
i want more fun
i want more fun

surfing drinking skiing dancing
got no time left for romancing
driving cars till they are crashed
when he’s been smoking to much hash
he’s got some yacht in italy
he’s got a house right by the sea
his car is fast his glasses black

i want more fun - more fun

i want more fun

come on let’s cross the USA
where cars drive slow not fast
come on let’s get arrested
and lay down in the grass

the way up to chicago
is nice all quiet and peace
sometimes you get kicked in your butt
by the illinois state police

you know this is our goddamn job
and we do as we please
you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

get pulled over to the side
get pointed with a gun
cause you might be or you could be
a gangster on the run

and now as you are a suspect
you won’t get no release
cause you got into trouble
with the illinois state police

you know this is our goddamn job
and we do as we please
you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

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

everytime i think of you
it makes me wanna cry
girl you came into my life
like a thief in the night
you took my lonely heart with you
and ran away
on my knees i'm begging you

take me home tonight
take me home tonight

your kisses are burning on my lips
like the pain is in my heart
my mind is only set on you
and it's tearing me apart
don't you play no games with me
or with my heart
on my knees i'm begging you

take me home tonight
take me home tonight

don't you feel the same
don't you feel the same i do
can't you see what you have done to me
you stole my heart
you're a gangster of love

everytime i think of you
it makes me wanna cry
girl you came into my life
like a thief in the night
you took my lonely heart with you
and ran away
on my knees i'm begging you

take me home tonight
take me home tonight

don't you feel the same
don't you feel the same i do
can't you see what you have done to me
you stole my heart
you're a gangster of love

your kisses are burning on my lips
like the pain is in my heart
my mind is only set on you
and it's tearing me apart
don't you play no games with me
or with my heart
on my knees i'm begging you

take me home tonight (9x)

big traffic jam today on highway #9
everybody will be late on highway #8
there’s gonna be a party on highway #7
but the girls with all the tricks are on highway #6

a millon cars are in a row
ain’t no place for you to go
you will miss the late night show

you can’t go ahead - throw your car away
you can’t go ahead - traffic is the word
you can’t go ahead - you never will arrive
on the way to nowhere no-one will survive

we’re skankin’ n the middle of highway #5
the cars are getting more on highway on highway # 4
that’s why you feel the luxury on highway #3
hysteric women next to you on highway #2

a millon cars are in a row
ain’t no place for you to go
you will miss the late night show

you can’t go ahead - throw your car away
you can’t go ahead - traffic is the word
you can’t go ahead - you never will arrive
on the way to nowhere no-one will survive

can’t believe your eyes when you see what’s going on
backseet love affairs on highway #1
but never take the highway when you don’t know where to go
cause highway #0 is the end of the show

a millon cars are in a row
ain’t no place for you to go
you will miss the late night show

feeling like a fool thinking of the fuel
sitting in your seat dreaming of full speed

you can’t go ahead
you can’t go ahead
you can’t go ahead

it was a night to hot to sleep
we went to town where people meet
we had a drink or two
and everything was oh so nice

she came along with two of her kids
agatha was her name she said
and i’m ashamed to say that we thought they were mice

she turned and said hello
and for a slice of bread she’d stay
we said "how’s your family?"
and she said "well they’re ok"

her name was agatha
her tail was long and red
and though it’s oh so sad
agatha the rat is dead

white powder they sold in that place
maybe she liked the taste
she found a little snack
and now it seems she had too much

her kids sold what was left of the dope
and then they moved out of town
i never heard of them
but i still remember their mom

she turned and said hello
and for a slice of bread she’d stay
we said "how’s your family?"
and she said "well they’re ok"

her name was agatha
her tail was long and red
and though it’s oh so sad
agatha the rat is dead

but now he’s changed he found his sight

but now she’s changed she found her luck

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
