“Now everywhere is War!”

“It’s up to you to not heed the Call Up!”


“Come on all Rude Boys unite
Stop That Train because
every morning you meet at the Bus Stop
but you know not where you’re goin’
or what you’re doin’
’cause you only see the clock on the wall
because you have to go to work
to work for your boss
who rule you and use you for a wage
from 9 to 5 Monday through Friday
all over the world
livin’ in fear of losin’ your job
because you don’t know the value which is in you
therefore you become somebody’s tool
so come on Rude Boys
let’s catch that Train To Skaville!”
