Punky punky punk
Said your gonna punky punky punk

Said im goin to a party
And i hope you are hearty
So please don't be naughty
For it's a punky reggae party

New wave, new phrase
New wave, craze

Its takes joyful sound
To make the world go round
Come with your heart and soul
Come and rock your bone

Its a punky reggae party
And it's tonight
Its a punky reggae party
And it's alright

What did you say?

Rejected by society
Treated with impunity
Projected by my dignity
I search for reality

New wave, new craze
New wave, new wave, new phrase

Im sayin
The Wailers will be there
The Damned, the Jam, the Clash
Maytals will be there
Dr. Feelgood too

No boring old farts, no boring old farts, no boring old farts
Will be there!
No boring old farts, no boring old farts, no boring old farts
Will be there!

Well it's a punky reggae party
And it's tonite
Its a punky reggae party
And it's alrite

A tip from a gypsy
She said "man you gettin tipsy"
Hiding from reality
In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy

Let me tell you

It takes a joyful sound
To make the world go round
It takes a joyful sound
So come and rock your bone

Cause it's a punky reggae party
And it's tonite
Well it's a punky reggae party
And it's alrite

A tip from a gypsy
She said "man you gettin tipsy"
Hiding from reality
In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy
Hidin from reality
In your world of hypocrisy
In your world of hypocrisy

A bubble, a bubble
Were looking for no trouble

New wave, new phrase
New wave, new wave, new craze

    When he says the wailers will be there i feel he is talking about heaven, its beautiful, were all invited, and literally the wailers will be there, its joyous. It makes me want to cry for joy when i think of heaven and actually being there with the wailers, in perfect fredom in joy and in christ.
