Lyric "Jailhouse"

GO!
And I won't give it up to you
But I feel love, feel love, oh yea

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 the rude rude people
Can't fight against the youth
Casuse we're strong and the rude rude people
Baby get down
When I was a youth in 1983
It 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

[Hook]

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, yea
And we'll be all singin', with version, with version, reggae version, reggae version, version, ohhhhh

What has been told to the wise and up-rooted
Its 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

[Hook]

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

[Hook]

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, them are rude, rude people
Can't fight against the youth

America

Sublime was an American ska punk band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988. The band's line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Eric Wilson (bass) and Bud Gaugh (drums). Lou Dog, Nowell's dalmatian, was the mascot of the band. Michael 'Miguel' Happoldt and Marshall Goodman "Ras MG" contributed to and co-wrote several Sublime songs. Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996. In 1997, posthumous songs such as "What I Got", "Santeria", "Wrong Way", "Doin' Time", and "April 29, 1992 (Miami)" were released to U.S. radio
