Rudie Can't Fail
Sing, Michael, sing
On the route of the 19 bus
We hear them saying

How you get a rude and a reckless?
Don't you be so crude and a feckless
You've been drinking brew for breakfast
Rudie can't fail (no, no)

We reply,
I know that my life makes you nervous
But I tell you that I can't live in service
Like the doctor who was born for a purpose
Rudie can't fail (okay)

I went to the market to realize my soul
'Cause what I need I just don't have (oh no)
First they curse, then they press me 'til I hurt
(We say) Rudie can't fail

First you must cure your temper
Then you find a job in the paper
You need someone for a savior
Rudie can't fail

We reply,
Now we get a rude and a reckless
We been seen looking cool and speckless
We been drinking brew for breakfast
Rudie can't fail (no no no)

I went to the market to realize my soul
'Cause what I need I just don't have
First they curse, then they press me 'til I hurt
Rudie can't fail

So where you wanna go today?
Hey boss man!

So you think you're pretty smart
(In the chicken skin suit) With your chicken skin suit
You think you're pretty hot
(Pork pie hat) With the pork pie hat

Rudie can't fail
Rudie can't fail
