Are you ready?

New wave, new rave
New wave, new wave, new rave
Let me tell you, we're going to a party
And I hope you are hardy
So please don't be naughty
For it's a punky reggae party
New wave, new rave
New wave, new rave

Tell you what, take a joyful sound
To make the world go 'round
Come with your heart and soul
Come-a, come-a and rock your boat
'Cause it's a punky reggae party
And it's tonight
It's a punky reggae party
And it's alright

Oh-oh-oh?

Rejected by society (do re mi fa)
Treated with impunity (so la te do)
Protected by their dignity (do re mi fa)
I face reality (so la te do)

New wave, new rave
New wave, new wave, new rave

Wailers be there
The Dammed, The Jam, The Clash
Maytals will be there
Doctor Feelgood too, ooh
No boring old farts, no boring old farts, no boring old farts
Will be there
No boring old farts, no boring old farts, no boring old farts
Will be there

And it's a punky reggae party
And it's tonight
Punky reggae party
And it's alright

Oh-oh, ah

A tip from a gypsy (do re mi fa)
She said man, you got a tipsy (so la te do)
Hidin' from reality (do re mi fa)
In your world of hypocrisy (so la te do)

In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy

Let me tell you, a bubble, a bubble, a bubble, a bubble
A bubble, we a bubble
We ain't lookin' for no trouble
So if you trouble-trouble
We'll give it to you double

New wave, new rave
New wave, new wave, new rave

Said we gonna punk, punk, punk, punk, punk, punk
Punk, punk, punk, punk, punk, punk
Punk, ah aaah-aah-aah
(Punk, punk, punk, punk, punk, punk)
(Punk, punk, punk, punk, punk, punk)
(Punk, punk, punk)

Eh, it takes a joyful sound 
To make the world, make the world go 'round
It takes a joyful sound
Come-a, come-a rock your boat

It's a punky reggae party
And it's tonight
Punky reggae party
And it's alright

Roots, roots, roots!

(Do re mi fa)
(So la te do)
(Do re mi fa)
(So la te do)
(New wave, new rave)
(New wave, new wave, new rave)

Said we gonna punk, punk, punk, punk, punk, punk
Ah aaah-aah-aah
