Everyday I get up and pray to Jah
And he increases the number of clocks
By exactly one
Everybody's coming home for lunch these days
Last night there were skinheads on my lawn

[Chorus]
Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling
Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling

Some people say bowling alleys
got big lanes
(Got big lanes)
(Got big lanes)
Some people say that bowling alleys
all look the same
(Look the same)
(Look the same)
There's not a line that goes here
That rhymes with anything
(Anything)
(Anything)
Had a dream last night
But I forget what it was
(What it was)
(What it was)

[Chorus: x2]

Had a dream last night
About you my friend

Had a dream
I wanted to sleep next to plastic
Had a dream
I wanted to lick your knees
Had a dream
It was about nothing

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentThis song for me is a general poke at racism and the white middle classes. The first verse is about the futility of religion and says that life continues in a kind of mundane way anyway. It also hints at the paranoia and complacency of suburbia.

    The second verse is about racial stereotypes.

    The last verse is a reference to Martin Luther King's 'I have a dream' speech and bemoans how diluted the message has become.
