    Lyrics:

    Stop your messing around
    Better think of your future
    Time you straighten right out
    Creating problems in town
    Rudy
    A message to you, Rudy
    A message to you
    Stop your fooling around
    Time you straighten right out
    Better think of your future
    Else you'll wind up in jail
    Rudy
    A message to you, Rudy
    A message to you
    Stop your messing around
    Better think of your future
    Time you straighten right out
    Creating problems in town
    Rudy
    A message to you, Rudy
    A message to you, Rudy
    Oh, it's a message to you, Rudy
    Yeah, it's a message to you, Rudy

    Lyrics:

    This town (town) is coming like a ghost town
    All the clubs have been closed down
    This place (town) is coming like a ghost town
    Bands won't play no more
    Too much fighting on the dance floor
    Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town?
    We danced and sang as the music played in any boomtown
    This town (town) is coming like a ghost town
    Why must the youth fight against themselves?
    Government leaving the youth on the shelf
    This place (town) is coming like a ghost town
    No job to be found in this country
    Can't go on no more
    The people getting angry
    This town is coming like a ghost town
    This town is coming like a ghost town
    This town is coming like a ghost town
    This town is coming like a ghost town

    Lyrics:

    You're working at your leisure to learn the things you'll need
    The promises you make tomorrow will carry no guarantee
    I've seen your qualifications, you've got a Ph.D.
    I've got one art O level, it did nothing for me
    Working for the rat race
    You know you're wasting your time
    Working for the rat race
    You're no friend of mine
    You plan your conversation to impress the college bar
    Just talking about your Mother and Daddy's Jaguar
    Wear your political T-shirt and sacred college scarf
    Discussing the worlds situation but just for a laugh
    You'll be working for the rat race
    You know you're wasting your time
    Working for the rat race
    You're no friend of mine
    Working for the rat race
    You know you're wasting your time
    Working for the rat race
    You're no friend of mine
    Just working at your leisure to learn the things you don't need
    The promises you make tomorrow will carry no guarantee
    I've seen your qualifications, you've got a Ph.D.
    I've got one art O level, it did nothing for me
    Working for the rat race
    You know you're wasting your time
    You're working for the rat race

    Lyrics:

    You've done too much
    Much too young
    Now you're married with a kid
    When you could be having fun with me
    Oh no, no gimme no more pickni
    You've done too much
    Much too young
    Now you're married with a son
    When you should be having fun with me
    We don't want, we don't want
    We don't want no more pickni
    Ain't he cute?
    No he ain't
    He's just another burden
    On the welfare state
    You've done too much
    Much too young
    Now you're married with a kid
    When you could be having fun with me
    No gimme, no gimme, no gimme no more pickni
    Call me immature
    Call me a poser
    I'd love to spread manure in your bed of roses
    Don't want to be rich
    Don't want to be famous
    But I'd really hate to have the same name as you
    You've done too much
    Much too young
    Now you're married with a kid
    When you could be having fun with me
    Gi we de birth control, we no want no pickni
    You've done too much
    Much too young
    Now you're chained to the cooker
    Making currant buns for tea
    Oh no, no gimme no more pickni
    Ain't you heard of the starving millions
    Ain't you heard of contraception
    Do you really a program of sterilization
    Take control of the population boom
    It's in your living room
    Keep a generation gap
    Try wearing a cap

    Lyrics:

    Hello and how are you and how do you do?
    And who is that girl standing right next to you?
    And what is her name and what does she do?
    I'm looking at her while I'm talking to you
    Her love must be sweeter than candy
    Must be stronger than brandy
    Why does she like you not me?
    Can I buy you a drink?
    You seem a decent chap
    I'm friendly to your face but behind your back
    What I like most about you is your girlfriend, it's true
    Her love must be sweeter than candy
    Must be stronger than brandy
    Why does she like you not me?
    I agree with what you say, I think that it's true
    Your girlfriend has only got one fault, that's you
    What I like most about you is your girlfriend, it's true
    When will we meet again and where will it be?
    Why don't you both come over to my house for tea?
    I'd rather she came round on her own, yes it's true
    Your girlfriend is what I like most about you
    What I like most about you is your girlfriend, it's true
    What I like most about you is your girlfriend, it's true
    What I like most about you is your girlfriend, it's true
    What I like most about you is your girlfriend, it's true

    Free Nelson Mandela
    Free, Free, Free, Nelson Mandela
    Free Nelson Mandela
    Twenty-one years in captivity
    His shoes too small to fit his feet
    His body abused but his mind is still free
    Are you so blind that you cannot see
    I say Free Nelson Mandela
    I'm begging you
    Free Nelson Mandela
    He pleaded the causes of the ANC
    Only one man in a large army
    Are you so blind that you cannot see
    Are you so deaf that you cannot hear his plea
    Free Nelson Mandela
    I'm begging you Free Nelson Mandela
    Twenty-one years in captivity
    Are you so blind that you cannot see
    Are you so deaf that you cannot hear
    Are you so dumb that you cannot speak
    I say Free Nelson Mandela
    I'm begging you
    Oh free Nelson Mandela, free
    Nelson Mandela I'm begging you
    begging you Please free Nelson Mandela
    free Nelson Mandela
    I'm telling you, you've got to free Nelson Mandela

    Lyrics:

    An icy wind blows through the door
    You feel like you've been here before
    You tremble and you start to sweat
    The symptoms of withdrawal
    Alcohol
    Why do you do it?
    Why do you keep beating me?
    You give some people a real good time
    But you cause some untold misery
    Heroin
    Why do you do it?
    I don't like what I've seen
    You promise someone a real good time
    And then you take them from their family
    You tremble and you start to sweat
    You don't want to withdraw
    And when your flesh begins to crawl
    You'd rather not be here at all
    Alcohol
    How do you do it?
    Please don't do it to me
    You give some people a real good time
    But you cause some untold misery
    Alcohol
    Why do you do it?
    You ain't gonna do it to me
    You give some people a real good time
    And you cause some untold misery

    The Special AKA - Free Nelson Mandela (Original Promo/ 12 Version) (1984) (HD)

    If you're a lifelong Specials fan then like me you've probably still to this very day got some strong feelings on the split of the band way back in the day. Good or bad there's no denying though that after the split this track was the best thing that came of it all...

    It's not often a chart song comes along that contributes to changing the world and it's history and this one is one of the handful that did just that and that's something that can't be taken away from it...

    Often wonder if this one would ever have came about if The Specials had never split !!! Who knows really but with all that said then there no denying this one is a classic no matter which way you may feel about what happened in the past to our favourite band of all time...

    Only thing I've never quite got about the video is... What's with all the Hip Hop & Breakdancing in it !!! What's that all aboot !!! :-o

    ReMastered, ReDubbed, Sharpened Up & extended to fir the 12 Version... enjoy... :-)
