Rudie Can’t Fail – Clash

Sing, Michael, sing
On the route of the 19 Bus!

We hear them sayin’
How you get a rude and a-reckless?
Don’t you be so crude and a feckless
You been drinking brew for breakfast
Rudie can’t fail, no, no

So we reply
I know that my life make you nervous
But I tell you that I can’t live in service
Like the doctor who was born for a purpose***
Rudie can’t fail

Okay, I went to the market to realise my soul
Cos what I need I just don’t have, oh no
First they cursed then they pressed me ’till I hurt
We say Rudie can’t fail

Woah, first you must cure your temper
Then you find a job in a paper
You need someone for a saviour
Then Rudie can’t fail, oh no

We reply
Now we get a rude and a reckless
We been seen lookin’ cool an’ a speckless
We been drinking brew for breakfast
Rudie can’t fail oh, no, no

I went to the market to realise my soul
Cos what I need I just don’t have – ah!
First they cursed then they pressed me ’till I hurt
Saying Rudie can’t fail

Okay! okay
So where you wanna go today?
Hey boss man! Hup-yeah
You’re looking pretty smart
In your chicken skin suit
With your chicken

You think you’re pretty hot
In the pork pie hard
In your pork pie hat
Look out, look out…
Sky juice!…10 cents a bottle!
But…Rudie can’t fail
Oh yeah
Rudie can’t fail
Yeah, yeah
Rudie can’t fail
Bring it back, bring it back, bring it back
Yeah, Rudie can’t fail
Yeah Rudie can’t fail
Rudie can’t fail
Yeah-hey-hey-hey-hey
Rudie can’t fail
Yeah-hey-hey-hey-hey
Rudie can’t fail
Rudie can’t fail
Rudie can’t fail
Rudie can’t fail
Chicken skin shoes!
