"Jailhouse" as written by and Peter Tosh Bob Marley....
Jailhouse keeps empty
(Rudie gets healt'y)
Baton sticks get shorter, oh yeah
(Rudie gets taller)

Can't fight against the youth now 'cause they so wrong
(Yout' a good, good rudie)
Can't fight against the youth now 'cause 'e is strong
(Yout' a good, good rudie)

Prediction, them people are going wild
(Oh, yeah dem a rude, rude people)
Dem peegoo a goin' wil'
(Dem a rude, rude people)

Shake 'er one time for me sir, right now
(She a rude, rude people)
Shake 'er one time for me sir
(Right now, she a rude, rude people)

The message, we gonna rule this land
(Oh, yeah we gonna rule this land)
Come on children
(Right now, we gonna rule this land)
Right now, we gonna rule this land

Can't fight against prediction
(Right now, we gonna rule this land)
Can't fight against prediction
(Wise, wise)
Be a wise, wise rudey

Jailhouse keeps empty
(Rudie gets healt'y)
Baton sticks get shorter, oh yeah
(Rudie gets taller)

Can't fight against the youth
(Yout' a good, good rudie)

What has been hid from the wise
And the polluted is how me feel so clean and
(Yout' a good, good rudie)
Oh, rudie, rudie, rudie be wise
(Yout' a good, good rudie)
