The Rebel Black Dot Song o' the Day: SKAfter Party

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, "Royal Oil" from Let's Face It (Rude Boy Mike Papa Whiskey)

"Royal oil, come on bubble and boil,
Stabs like a dagger, makes you stagger on the hot tin foil,
Mind your mind or it will surely spoil,
Then you sleep down in the soil.
Nothing comes from nothing, come on Royal Oil.

"When you smoke or poke the poison,
You loose the chance to be tomorrow,
(Don't lose your chance!)
Look out on the horizon,
See the sadness, the pain, and the sorrow…

"Royal Oil has cut many down to size,
Spikes gonna strike the weak and strong alike,
And then forever and ever close those eyes.
Make up your mind to keep your mind up and to your life be loyal…"
