I want to talk to you today about Moon Records
I sent them a tape that I had made about a month ago
I said that the band is breaking up
I'm trying to go solo
the man on the phone call back to say
that Mr. Bucket said no

he don't know if the rude boys - like you boys
will like my stuff, but he know
the one man show will never go
and the tape it sounds too rough

I know it's true, they'll never like
what they never get to hear
it's been that way for ska over the years
but why should the ska world cover its ears
to the sounds of my blood, sweat and tears

when I want to play ska
I want to play ska for all of you
I want to play ska for all of you
cos ska is what I do

and so I've come down to New York
to demonstrate to you
that Venice Shoreline Chris
is paying respect to the roots
so clap your hands, sway your hips
get into a soulful groove
hear this music straight from my heart to you

I want to play ska
I want to play ska for all of you
I want to play ska for all of you
cos ska is what I do

I want to play ska
I want to play ska for all of you
I want to play ska for all of you
cos the ska is what I do

and I think that the rude boys - like you boys
might like my stuff, and I know
the one man show
is here we go
and the tape sounds just raw enough
