"Sock it to 'em JB" as written by and Clayton/holman Dunn....
Are you ready for this?
I told you he was coming, who?
J.B., and he's ready to sock it to ya one time

Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em

Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em

Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em

Dr. No, from Russia with love, gold finger
Thunder ball, Casino Royal

Soul jerk, shake your hips
Shake your body line to the ground, J.B. style
Soulful, oh mamma you doin' it good
You doin' it right, you doin' it J.B. style
Soulful

Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em

Diamonds are forever, Moon raker
Man with the golden gun
Live and let die
Spy who loved me, you only live twice

J.B's got you doin' the bossanova
J.B's got you doin' the scratch
So let me see you rock
And let me see you shake it to J.B's rock
Soulful

Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em

Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
Sock it to 'em, sock it to 'em
J.B

    General CommentThis is the all-time most shagadelic mod '60s song ever recorded. But we need to make a couple of corrections to BeautifulDisaster's lyrics:

    *In the fourth verse, Neville shouts out, "Soul-Fool," not "Soulful."

    *In the third to the last verse, JB's got you doin' the SHRUG, which was a popular dance in the mid-60s (not the "scratch")

    Anyway - kudos for posting this one. It' one of the most underappreciated songs in The Specials' repertoire.
