For the first time from Jamaica
Villager and a Lee Right Smart
Do Right Wilson, a cool operator

Camp boots a UK pop reggae
With backing fine sound systems
And if they've got anything to say
There's many blacks in television

My body was fucked up so nice with uncool stage fright
Dancing from the bass line to the trouble
But onstage they ain't got no roots rock rhythm
Onstage they ain't got no...roots rock hello-ooooo

Vespa, vespa. This is a booby in a tank
'Cos it won't get you anywhere
Fooling with the cunts
The British Army is waiting out there
An' it weighs fifteen hundred tons
:mrgreen:
We reach the parts other combos cannot reach
We beach the beachheads other armies cannot beach
We speak the tongues other mouths cannot speak

I always heard "Oxcars on stage nine" instead of "Encores from stage right."

Of course there's the classic "Fucked up all night" for "Four tops all night"

Yep...and of course, my all time favorite "Got a rake? Sure!" in CC.

I swear to god he says "Four and six" not "Burton suits".
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I had no idea what he said their until I read a lyric sheet, but once I did, it sounds like Burton suits, clear as a bell.

My hearing: "We can try to understand that Ewan Turner's a Vector man.
Real lyric: "We can't try to understand the New York Times' affect on man."

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.
