Whole Southside been up in your guts Don't know how to describe how much you suck And it's not just you, but everyone of you plus Follow each other around like a bunch of ducks Just turn the music up and get dumb Stretch your skin around the biggest drum Born from a neighborhood of click and run And already gave away my stick of gum Just find a torch and light the ceiling Life's too short to fight the feeling I get a little paranoid for no reason When the jukebox plays "Don't Stop Believin'" My level dries like a rebel But it's alright, it's a rental Your consent is so incidental We want what we want, we ain't trying to settle We last forever through the echo Some say special, some say essential Went to hell to threaten the devil And separate the horns like bass and trebel
Wrote my name on blocks of cinder Kissed my name on top of winter Say my name when you're in denial But not too many times, it might dim your smile And if it's all the same I'm a flood that thin little train that you call a lane Knocked down any walls that remain I'll bring the balls and y'all bring the chains When I'm dead you can flip the mattress Put me in a jar and kiss my ashes Or put my body in the middle of traffic Buttnaked in a glasscasket, what? Minneapolis, got love for the advocates Y'all the baddest bitch, so passionate Let me hear you say fuck the establishment Say it, show me a player that's mad at this And I'mma show you a hater and a masochist Y'all think that I got a damn to give Do I look like I drive a fucking ambulance?
Whole Southside Whole Southside Biddie bye bye, biddie bye bye, biddy bye bye, what?

Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
