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)

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)

Police get taller (a shanty town)
Soldier get longer (a shanty town)
Rude boy a weep and a wail (a shanty town)
Rude boy a weep and a wail (a shanty town)
