rude boys have a go wail

// 007 (Shanty Town), by Desmond Drekker (1967); Kingston, Jamaica

0-0-7, 0-0-7
At ocean eleven
And now rude boys have a go wail
‘Cause them out of jail
Rude boys cannot fail
‘Cause them must get bail
Dem a loot, dem a shoot, dem a wail (a shanty town)
Dem a loot, dem a shoot, dem a wail (a shanty town)
Dem rude boys get a probation (a shanty town)
And rude boy bomb up the town (a shanty town)

This shit is profound. I’m educating myself in more early ska, rocksteady, and etc. as it was in Jamaica and before exported. I’ll probably be writing about this topic for a bit until I have to get other kicks experiencing, thinking, and analyzing other stuff.
