Bob Marley & The Wailers - Ruddie (aka Jailhouse)

Jailhouse keeps empty (ruddie gets healt'y)
Baton sticks get shorter (ruddie gets taller)
Can't fight against the youth now,
'Cause they so wrong (yout' a good, good ruddie)
Can't fight against the youth now,
'Cause 'e is strong (yout' a good, good ruddie)
Prediction, them people are going wild
(oh yeah - dem a rude, rude people)
Dem peegoo a goin' wil' (dem a rude, rude people)
Shake 'er one time for me sir, right now (she a rude, rude people)
Shake 'er one time for me sir, right now (she a rude, rude people)

The message: we're gonna rule this land. (ooh yeah)
We're gonna rule this land, common children, (right now)
We're gonna rule this land. (right now)
Can't fight against prediction. (right now)
Can't fight against prediction. (wise, wise ruddie)

Jailhouse keeps empty (ruddie gets healt'y)
Baton sticks get shorter (ruddie gets taller)
Can't fight against the youth (yout' a good, good ruddie)
What has been hid from the wise and the prudent,
Has been revealed to the babes the suckling.
Oh, Ruddie, Ruddie, be wise..
