(Nuff respect to my bredda Kali)

Rub-a-dub radio, cyan play low
Turn it up loud so they hear it down the road
Out on the balcony, playing dominoes
Drink a likkle heineken, smoke a likkle smoke
Big up to everyone in the studio
Yes DJ, play that song I know!
Briggy, Sugar Minott, Yami Bolo
Frankie Paul, Tenor Saw, Luciano
Shabba and Buju and the man Yellow
Scratch Perry, U-Roy, days of old
Slengteng riddim, man, me love it so
Way in my brain it jus echo and flow
Bubble down straight from the head to the toe
Deep in the chest, you could hear the drum roll
Pulse like a heartbeat, bass control
So we flow like the river Nile or Congo

Rub-a-dub radio
Rub-a-dub radio
Rub-a-dub radio
Fe the dread on the go, dread on the go

Rub-a-dub style, turn up my disco
Total niceness pon the microphone
Roll pon the riddim like tire pon a road
Cling to the riddim and never let go
Run a nex dub plate, mash up the show
Mix in a new track, make the people know
Wheel it back one time, bring it in slow
Then pick up the pace like you a true maestro
Afternoon, evening, or the late night show
On my headphones, or in a blocko
Speaker stack up from the ceiling to the floor
See we nice up  session like a jam back home
