"DJ's" as written by and Bradley James Nowell....
All of the DJ's surely have taken a lesson
Start talking trash and I'll come with my Smith and Wesson

A little competition comes my way (billy bye)
But it always winds up the same
But the stone that the builder refused
Shall be the head corner stone
Ah, but there ain't nothin' wrong
Ain't nothin' right
And still I sit and lie awake all night

Oh, all of the DJ's surely have taken a lesson
Try talkin' trash and I'll come with my Smith and Wesson
(Enough DJs come with) enough, enough style
(But when I bust my lyrics we all know it's) wicked and wiley

'Cause there
Ain't nothin' wrong
Ain't nothin' right
And still I sit and lie awake all night

Oh, You better strapped with your gat if you wan' walk with me
I bound to come down with the new style
Rockin' rubadub known as reggae music
Gonna come down with the new lyrics
'Cause it just ain't no thing
Oh, I said it's been a real long time

Oh, but there
Ain't nothin' wrong
Ain't nothin' right
And still I sit and lie awake all night

Oh yeah
Rubadub blender a new mixer, go
I am the one DJ with enough flava
It go here I go, here I'm come, heara the dubbed down DJ
Lord have his grilled cheese
I mean ah, I am Jamaican but I ain't no freak
I caught the man Eno with a ten pound bag o' tweak (eazy, "damn")
And we called him ghost rider
Every time you see him he fulfill the danger

Ain't nothin' wrong
Ain't nothin' right
And still I sit and lie awake all night

Oh, oh
Dreddy got a job to do
And we might fulfill the mision
To see his pain would be his greatest ambition
But ah, we will survive in this world of competition
Shooting guns and our ammunition

Bo, bo, bo, bo, bo, bo, bo
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go

I won't wait so long, mmm
I said I won't wait so long for you
Oh, oh, yeah mmm mmm ooh oh
Hard to get so much
Stop your messin' around, ah ah ah
Better think of your future, ah ah ah
Time you straighten right out, ah ah
Or you'll wind up in jail

    General CommentI love this song! The very end reminds me of my best friend and I, we never get caught seperately, but once we're together we get into so much trouble....smoking weed, smoking dirty, belly dancing, sneaking out and chillin....all we do is listen to sublime (it's all we can agree on)!

    General CommentFucking amazing song. You can't beat the energy in this song. It's got such a lively feel to it. Bradley was a legend, and I wish the mainstream music world would recognize him as such. Some people do, but he's never on any top 100 lists, at least not on MTV or VH1. He was so great, such a charismatic front-man, and the other two guys could play instruments really well. Eric Wilson and his awesome bass lines. Bud Gaugh and his drumming... How they came together is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I doubt there will be a band in their genre(s) ever again that has music anywhere near as good and diverse. Brad was the master DJ, and nobody could touch him.

    General CommentThe very end of this song is in fact the beginning of "A message to you Rudy" by The Specials. That's a very funny band who makes..humm..well..(very difficult to describe) English Ska. Yes, English Ska! And I advise everybody who likes Ska listenning to this pretty good song (and the rest of the album).

    General Comment"The very end of this song is in fact the beginning of "A message to you Rudy" by The Specials."

    and the "dreddy got a job to do" verse and "stone that the builder refused" are both from Ride Natty Ride by Bob Marley.

    I wouldn't be suprised if this whole song was pieced from various ska/regae songs
