The Specials – Concrete Jungle | Gangsters

Concrete Jungle

I’m going out tonight
I don’t know if I’ll be alright
Everyone want’s to hurt me
Baby danger in the city

I have to carry a knife
Because there’s people threatening my life
I can’t dress just the way I want
I’m being chased by the national front

Concrete jungle, animals are after me
Concrete jungle, it ain’t safe on the streets
Concrete jungle, glad I got my mates with me

I won’t fight for a cause
don’t want to change the law
Leave me alone, just leave me alone
I want to get out on my own

I’m walking home tonight
I only walk where there’s lots of lights
In the alleys and the doorways
Some throw a bottle right in your face

Concrete jungle, animals are after me
Concrete jungle, it ain’t safe on the streets
Concrete jungle, glad I got my mates with me

I’m walking home tonight
I only walk where there’s lots of lights
In the alleys and the doorways
Some throw a bottle right in your face

I won’t fight for a cause
I don’t want to change the law
Leave me alone, just leave me alone
I want to get out on my own

Concrete jungle, animals are after me
Concrete jungle, it ain’t safe on the streets
Concrete jungle, glad I got my mates with me

The Specials – Gangsters

Bernie Rhodes knows Don’t Argue

Why must you record my phone calls?
Are you planning a bootleg LP?
Said you’ve been threatened by gangsters
Now it’s you, that’s threatening me

Can’t fight corruption with con tricks
They use the law to commit crime
And I dread, dread to think what the future will bring
When we’re living in gangster time

Don’t call me scar face

Can’t interrupt while I’m talking
Or they’ll confiscate all your guitars
and catch 22 says if I sing the truth
they won’t make me an overnight star

Don’t offer us legal protection
They use the law to commit crime
I dread to think what the future will bring
When we’re living in gangster time
