Well, I just got back and I wish I never leave now (where'd you go)
Who that marshal arrival at the airport, yeah (where'd you go)
How many local dollars for a local anesthetic (where'd you go)
The Johnny on the corner wasn't very sympathetic (where'd you go)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe European home
Don't wanna go back there again

Wasn't I lucky and wouldn't it be lovely (where'd you go)
Send us all cards, and have a lay-in on a Sunday (where'd you go)
I was there for two weeks, so how come I never tell now (where'd you go)
That natty dread drinks at the Sheraton Hotel, yeah (where'd you go)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe European home
Don't wanna go back there again

They got the sun, they got the palm trees (where'd you go)
They got the weed, they got the taxis (where'd you go)
Whoa, the harder they come, and the home of old blue beat (where'd you go)
I'd stay and be a tourist, but I can't take the gunplay (where'd you go)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe European home
Don't wanna go back there again

Oh, Rudie come from Jamaica, Rudie can't fail
Rudie come from Jamaica, Rudie can't fail
Rudie come from Jamaica, Rudie can't fail
Rudie come from Jamaica, Rudie can't fail

Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie
Rudie can't fail
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie
Rudie can't fail

Rudie loot and Rudie shoot
Rudie come up, then come back down
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie
Come up, then come back down

Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie
Rudie can't fail
Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie
Rudie can't fail

Rudie come up, but he's a big guy
(Nice guy, European home)
Cause Rudie can't fail
Rudie come up, but he's a big guy
(Explosive European home)
Cause Rudie can't fail

Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie, Rudie
(Twenty-four track European home)
Rudie can't fail
Elvis come and Rudie go
No one knows what Rudie knows
