Stolen from an Africa land, chased out with a knife
With a face like Bob Marley and some mouths like a motor bike
Oh, but the bars are always open and the time is always right
And if God's good word goes unspoken and the music goes all night

If I was Bob Marley, I said could you be loved
If I was half pint, I'd ball the lord up above
If I was Mike Tyson, I'd look for a fight
If I was a Boomtown Rats, I would be stayin' up all night
If I was the king Ad-Rock, I would get stupid dumb
If rhymes were Valiums, I'd be comfortably numb

If I had a shotgun, you know what I'd do
I'd point that shit straight at the sky and shoot heaven on down for you
Because the bars are always open and the time is always right
And if God's good word goes unspoken and the music goes all night

And it goes, I want a lover but I can't find the time
I want a reason but I can't find the rhyme
And I want to start some static but I can't afford
Just lay on the ground like I fell off my skateboard
Now a days as clear as you please
Strap with protection or strap with disease

'Cause laughter, it's free any time just call me
439-0116 when your down with Sublime you get

Stolen from an Africa land, I was chased out of the bar
I saw my best friend tonight so don't push me too far

I'm gonna run come down with the new lyrics
Get hit, get hip, don't slip you knuckle heads
Racism is schism on a serious tip
You don't believe me that I won't bust your lip

Because I am a mountain and it hard to climb
Ruffle the rhythm and it must be Sublime
[Incomprehensible], it right on time
We got cricket with the quickness, it's got the bassline

People wanna come up and they wanna tell me
Smokin' crack cocaine better than sensi
You're pumpin' that shit, yo we're sick of it
You're teakin' every weekend and we just can't take
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, it we don't want plastic
