Rude Boys Back in Town
by Michael Franti



So unique

Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa

The rude boys back in town
The rude boys back in town
I tell ya that
The rude boys back in town
The rude boys back in town

See I was walking down the street about a quarter to four
It was early in the morning from the night before
Met a woman on the corner said yo come in my door
Heard the rhythm of the music pumping up from through floor

When I walked through the party it was ready to go
There were punk rockers reggae rockers all in a row
Windin' and a grindin' through the DJ show
The woman from the corner I was getting to know

The rude boys back in town
The rude boys back in town
I tell ya that
The rude boys back in town
The rude boys back in town

I see ya whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa

Damn I say Micheal Michael where you been
You been eating out you know you look a little thin
I been out in japan just chillin' Tokyo man
I toked up on the train to Hiroshima and then
I jump into the water and I started to swim
Shanghai Ho Chi Minh city and then
Darundi Indonesia where I hook with some friends

I visit tamaita down in tohor again
I jumped across the byron out of springs

Down to cape town where I be doing my thing
Then I be gone to uganda tanzania
Off to sudan and glad to see em

Jerusalem, Mumbai, Istanbul
Then down to Rio Sebala Brazil

Up to Guadalajara Kingston way
Stop off in Havanah and I'm back to the bay

The rude boys back in town
The rude boys back in town
I tell ya that
The rude boys back in town
The rude boys back in town

We callin' out from itune underground
I come to tell you
The rude boys back in town

Are you rocking rocking
Are you rolling rolling
Are you whining
Are you grinding grin

Do you want to rock a party to the morning morning
When the police come in, give a warning warning

I'm the drummer but feel like I pick up a mic
And when I rock the party you can do what you like
Get ready for the rhythm where we come here to sine
From la in the morning we wont stop until light
All night long we just rocking along
Dance to the dj we be singing a song
Hold to your lover if your loving is strong
Dance to the bass line all night long

The rude boys back in town
The rude boys back in town
Let me tell ya that
The rude boys back in town
The rude boys back in town

Whoa whoa whoa whoa
So unique
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
So unique
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
So unique
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
So unique

The rude boys back in town
