Elvis made a record it was really something Special,
Taught us about the scene and what to say and what to do,
Now I won’t make a comment if you think I got Bad Manners,
You might think it’s Madness but this is just the way I’m gonna stay.

I wouldn’t change it for a million (or 2Tone)
A lottery prize or extended loan,
We say ‘pick it up’, but they just put it down,
But I wouldn’t change my checkered past now.

So we made a plan to get it all together,
We played the best, we made the rest, as long as it is true,
Now this is where it started, ahh The Beat is bouncin’ up and down,
I love this sound and it’s coming from me to you!

(I wouldn’t change it for a million (or 2Tone)
A lottery prize or extended loan,
We say ‘pick it up’, but they just put it down,
But I wouldn’t change my checkered past now.) x 2

Like my heart I wear my influences out upon my sleeve,
And my past and my future has to be seen to be believed,
Now there’s too much pressure to be a stereotype,
My past is checkered, check the record, its there in black and white!

(I wouldn’t change it for a million (or 2Tone)
A lottery prize or extended loan,
We say ‘pick it up’, but they just put us down,
But I wouldn’t change my checkered past now.) x 2
