In '82 I was the young one in the bunch
Initation started and ended with a punch
As I got older I got scars to prove my worth
More times than others I fell face first in the dirt
Wo ho ho can't you see, you'll never take the gang outta me.
Runt in a pack of wolves
I was nosed up to the front
I preyed on the weekend soldiers who couldn't take the hunt
Like Julius Caesar waited for the knife stuck in his bike
I stood so proud and tall and I won't go out like that.
Wo ho ho can't you see -- you'll never take the gang outta me.
Well all the kings before I cut down with my axe
I stoop atop this world alone without a scratch
With another victory I basked right under the sun
My war was over but a new one has begun
Wo ho ho can't you see -- you'll never take the gang outta me!

    General CommentSkunx was a term used for people heavily into the Oi! scene. What do we know about the older oi scene? It was very violent. Gangs formed, generally skins (not always racist skins, mind you). London had its London Skinz, and the Bay Area had the Skunx. A gang of little violent kids who took the oi scene as gospel.

    General Commentany1 who thinks a skinhead is a racist needs to have a fucking assbeating so leave me ur address if u leave a comment saying that. skunx is skinhead punks. ussualy skins that listen heavily into oi and punk and less to reagge and ska. there are crews (not gangs u fukhat) of skunx that will fight people for fun. much like in the hardcore scene you have the scenesters in their girls pants and banadas, and then you have fsu who will fight the poser fagots

    Skinheads aren't racist. Neo-nazis are. Read into it.
