Fishy Swa Ska 


I feel like I'm being assassinated by boredom or something
I need some excitement, some adventure, some of that...
You know that "Je ne sais quoi"
I need some... some Fishbone

Day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year !
Your political leaders take it the ear for a beer and say :
"Hey ! As long as I've got my diamonds & pearls & free plane rides to Europe,
Let the poor be poorer and the underprived be underpriviledge, huh !"
A dog crosses the street
A butcher cuts his meat
C'mon you rebels, dance your blues away !
The Fishy Swa Ska, that's what I say !

And further more...

Call me a poser, call me a fake
I'd like to pour diarhea in your vanilla milkshake !
Rude boy, rude boy ! There's a hint you can take !
You wear your clothes and I wear mine
So don't give me a job !
You prejudice swine
So what if I wear mismatched monkey boots
Pajama bottoms and a suit made of poison ivy ?
For 6 million days ? Oh !
A bird drops a turd
A lot of cows make a herd
This mission I say will never be done
So why should I bother to move my tongue
C'mon you cats, c'mon you chicks !
Dance your blues away !

And furthermore...

See the preachers preach
But the devil deceits
So why should I let those bad guys stray me from my F-Bone beliefs !
I'm the one who experiments with the bullets and the sharks !
I'm the cause for the cross-over
For the brand new start in the dark
Yeah ! Radio man I'm talking to you !
And you machine beat junkies that have locked your doors
Will get diseased by the Rock-n-Roll Whore
If I dared not to get rude and make a fuss
This groove would be minor and riding in the back of a bus
No one cares about progression
So fuck you !
Cause if you did, you'd be making a confession
That's true !
But as the narrowminded say : "So near and far,
It'll never happen, it's too bizarre !"

Yeah ! But don't you fret ?...
There will be a movement in the light yet
So c'mon you cats, c'mon you chicks !
Dance your blues away !
The Fishy Swa Ska, that's what I say !

And furthermore...
