The Rebel Black Dot Song of This Day: SKAfter Party

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, "The Rascal King" from The Impression That I Get (The Last Angry Rude Boy)

"Crooked was the path,
And brazen was the walk,
A cocky swagger up the ladder,
And could he ever talk!…

"The love of God,
In constant contradictions,
And just a smile, wink, and nod,
What's stranger: fact or fiction?…

"A legendary character
Where only there, when only there.
(Do it again!)
A hero or a hooligan?
Well, that part's never clear.
(Do it again!)
What a shame, it's all the same,
(Do it again!)
Who's innocent and who's to blame?
(Do it again!)
Politics or just a game?
Well, iffy if they knew his name…"
