*** Pablo's Shebeen ***

There used to be a shebeen
Next to the laundry mat where I used to live
In London town, in London town
If you know what I mean

And there was an old man
Who used to bring up the sounds
And he kept those beats, he kept those beats
From when Prince Buster was around

Well now this old man Georgie
Was well respected in the days of old
And when Prince Buster would play
He'd skank old night and leave the London cold

Now with the Vespa's outside
And with a rude girl I was rocking steady, steadily steadily
And we would skank to the morning
Cause that's the way we do in the London city

So I say, if you can
Come on and get up and skank
If your a rude boy do some drop legs with me
If you can, if you can
It's quite easy, just pump your feet and do it cool and deadly!

There used to be a shebeen
Beside the laundry mat where I used to live
In London town

And on a Saturday night
Old man Georgie would string up the sound
Yes he would, yes he would

And I said, just for a pound a
Said you could get in and drop legs all night, all night, all night
And if there wasn't a fight, then everyone would be feeling alright

So I say if you can
Come on and get up and skank
If your a rude boy do some drop legs with me
If you can if you can
It's quite easy
Just pump your feet and keep it cool and deadly
If you can if you can...
