Track Name: Knock Back That Whiskey
Bitch, Don't come around here, killing my vibe.
I got nothing but good feelings all on my mind.
Girl by my side, yeah she's lookin' real fine,
I'm gonna knock back that whiskey,
Gonna knock back that wine.

Don't want to slave for my boss, working 9 to 5,
I'm going to head down to Hailstone, make them kids jive,
Yeah the sweat gonna drip, yeah them hips are gonna grind,
Gone to my head, we're getting down to down tonight.

Couldn't pay rent, landlord kicked me out on my ass,
Headfirst out the door, threw my guitars on the grass.
Writing this here album to make up the cash,
Don't want to sell my guitars, to get my bond back.

But I'm feeling so good...
I'm feeling alright,
I'm going to show you how I do it baby.

Got my shoes in hard rubbish, but they ain't got no soles,
Got some superglue and cardboard, gonna patch up them holes,
Ain't no rainy weather going to, break my stride
Gonna knock back that whiskey, getting down tonight
Track Name: Red Rocksteady
Let me tell y'all about a guy I know.
Sometimes find him on my couch or sometimes on the floor.
He's a bad son of a bitch, better watch your back get ready.
I'm gonna tell y'all folks, about Red Rocksteady...

Now Red ain't the biggest boy in town,
But if you hear his bark, he's gonna turn you right around.
He don't care what any strangers say,
Beats his own drum and walks his own way.
Better kneel boy, say you're sorry and pray,
Red Rocksteady, he's on his way.

He's the kinda guy, draws the card he choose,
Stand and flip the table he knows you're born to lose.
Don't have to lock up your daughter, lock up your wife,
'Cos we took him to the vet, cut his balls off with a knife.
Bitches beg, scream, holler and howl,
Red Rocksteady he's on the prowl...

Wait, wait.. What is this?
'He's chewed by best volleys'!
Not his volleys! You don't chew a man's volleys!

He's got a friend called Justice, but that's just her name.
Trouble they get up to is worthy of fame.
He'll turn twice for food, just you catch him in a bad mood,
Wake up in the morning and you'll find your shoes chewed.
Better kneel boy, say you're sorry and pray,
Red Rocksteady he's on his way...

He's a dog!
