Desmond Dekker – 007 (Shanty Town) lyrics
007, 007
At ocean eleven
And now rudeboys them a wail
'Cause them out of jail
Rudeboys cannot fail
'Cause them must get bail

Oh, dem a loot, dem a shoot, dem a wail
At shanty town
Dem a loot, dem a shoot, dem a wail
At shanty town

Dem rudeboys out on probation
At shanty town
Dem a rude when they come up to town
At shanty town

007, 007
At ocean eleven
And now rudeboys them a wail
'Cause them out of jail
Rudeboys cannot fail
'Cause them must get bail

Oh, dem a loot, dem a shoot, dem a wail
At shanty town
Dem a loot, dem a shoot, dem a wail
A shanty town

Dem rudeboys out on probation
At shanty town
Dem rude when they come up to town
A shanty town

Police get taller
At shanty town
Soldier get longer
At shanty town

Rudeboy a weep and a wail
A shanty town
Rudeboy a weep and a wail
A shanty town
