Big Five

Album: Working Class 'Ero (1974)

Songfacts®:

  • This very short Judge Dread ditty is not to be confused with the simply obscene Prince Buster song of the same name. It is basically a nursery rhyme which employs the same formula as "The Four Letter Words", allowing the listener to do his own dirty work. Although it contains only one very mild swear word (in the last line "you're bloody well wrong"), it was still banned from airplay, as were most or all of the white reggae star's records. >>
