Gangsters
The Specials Lyrics


Bernie Rhodes knows don't argue

Why must you record my phone calls?
Are you planning a bootleg LP?
Said you've been threatened by gangsters
Now it's you, that's threatening me

Can't fight corruption with con tricks
They use the law to commit crime
And I dread, dread to think what the future will bring
When we're living in gangster time

Don't call me scar face

Can't interrupt while I'm talking
Or they'll confiscate all your guitars
And catch 22 says if I sing the truth
They won't make me an overnight star

Don't offer us legal protection
They use the law to commit crime
I dread to think what the future will bring
When we're living in gangster time

Bernie Rhodes knows don't argue

The Specials was the darkest next to The Selecter, compered to the others.

"You can't fight corruption with politics. They use the law to commit crimes. I dread to think what the future will bring..." As a citizen of the future they worried about, I can say their concerns were valid.

"Con tricks" apparently, but not really any different at times.

Daz Auto

1979 to 1981. They were the best band on the planet. No one could touch them.
