Midnight to six man
For the first time from Jamaica
Dillinger and Leroy Smart
Delroy Wilson, your cool operator

Ken Boothe for UK pop reggae
With backing bands sound systems
And if they’ve got anything to say
There’s many black ears here to listen

But it was Four Tops all night with encores from stage right
Charging from the bass knives to the treble
But onstage they ain’t got no roots rock rebel
Onstage they ain’t got no roots rock rebel

Dress back jump back, this is a bluebeat attack
‘Cause it won’t get you anywhere
Fooling with the guns
The British Army is waiting out there
An’ it weighs fifteen hundred tons

White youth, black youth
Better find another solution
Why not phone up Robin Hood
And ask him for some wealth distribution

Punk rockers 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, ha, you think it’s funny
Turning rebellion into money

All over people changing their votes
Along with their overcoats
If Adolf Hitler flew in today
They’d 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 lookin’ for fun

I’m only
Looking for fun

I’m only
Looking for fun

  1. For everyone asking, rest of the song is against artists who are singing only for money and because of which companies like Vevo earn their profit. That's why they censored it.

  2. Seeing them play this on the Guns On The Roof tour, Suicide and The Coventry Automatics…soon to become The Specials supporting. Those Target badges thrown out into the crowd…Summer of 78 was as good as the year before.

  3. I'm 13 and one of my dreams is to make films. I want to be behind the screen rather then in front and I feel like if I ever made a movie, I would want to add this song in like 10 times…
