At ocean eleven 
And now rudeboys have a go wail 
Cause them out of jail 
Rudeboys 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 rudeboys get a probation 
A Shanty Town 
And rudeboy bomb up the town 
A Shanty Town
