Safe European Home lyrics

Well, I just got back an’ I wish I never leave now
(Where’d you go?)
Who that Martian arrival at the airport, yeah?
(Where’d you go?)

How many local dollars for a local anesthetic?
(Where’d you go?)
The Johnny on the corner was very sympathetic
(Where’d you go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
An’ sitting here in my safe European home
Don’t wanna go back there again

Wasn’t I lucky, wouldn’t it be lovely?
(Where’d you go?)
Send us all cards and have a lay in on Sunday
(Where’d you go?)

I was there for two weeks, so how come I never tell now
(Where’d you go?)
That natty dread drinks at the Sheraton Hotel, yeah?
(Where’d you go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
An’ sitting here in my safe European home
Don’t wanna go back there again

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

They got the sun and they got the palm tress
(Where’d you go?)
They got the weed and they got the taxies
(Where’d you go?)

Whoa, the harder they come and the home of ol’ Bluebeat
(Where’d you go?)
I’d stay and be a tourist but can’t take the gun play
(Where’d you?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
An’ sitting here in my safe European home
Don’t wanna go back there again

What? Rudie come from Jamaica, Rudie can’t fail
Rudie come from Jamaica, Rudie can’t fail
Rudie come from Jamaica, 'cause Rudie can’t fail
Rudie come From Jamaica, Rudie can't fail

Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can’t fail
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can’t fail
A-Rudie loot and a-Rudie shoot and a-Rudie come up then back down

Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, come up then back down
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie can’t fail
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie he can’t fail

Nice guy European home
Explosive European home
And twenty-four Track European home
