Sublime - Jailhouse Lyrics


sponsored links
And I won't give it up to you
And I feel love, feel love

Jailhouse gets empty
Rudy gets plenty
The baton stick gets shorter
Rudy gets taller
Can't fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong and we're rude rude people
Can't fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong and we're rude rude people

When I was a youth in 1983
Was the best day of my life, had the 89 vision
We didn't fuss or no fight
When all the little daughters wanna be my wife
It was playin' on my guitar, on my guitar

I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there

When the rhythm playin'
I know that I'm gonna be there yeah
Bud Gaugh will be singing there
And Eric Wilson will be bangin' up there, yeah
Oh and we'll be all singin', with version, with version, reggae version, reggae version, version, oh

What has been told to the wise and up-rooted
Yeah, it's gonna be revealed unto, and Sublime
Rudy Rudy Rudy
Can't fight against the youth, right now
Them are rude, rude people
Can't fight against the resistance, oh right now
Them are rude, rude people

We gonna rule this land among children
We gonna rule this land

'Cause when that rhythm it was playin' on my guitar
On my guitar

I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there

When I was a youth it was the best day
It was the best day of my life
We had the 89' vision

We didn't fuss or no fight
When all the little daughters wanna be my wife
When that rhythm it was playin' on my guitar
On my guitar

I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
Had to be there

Jailhouse gets empty
Rudy gets plenty
Baton stick gets shorter
Rudy gets taller, taller
And fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong, and we're rude, rude people
Can't fight against the youth
