Jailhouse
Sublime Lyrics


And I won't give it up to you
And I feel love, feel love

Jailhouse gets empty
Rudy gets plenty
The baton stick gets shorter
Rudy gets taller
Can't fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong and we're rude rude people
Can't fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong and we're rude rude people

When I was a youth in 1983
Was the best day of my life, had the 89 vision
We didn't fuss or no fight
When all the little daughters wanna be my wife
It was playin' on my guitar, on my guitar

I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there

When the rhythm playin'
I know that I'm gonna be there yeah
Bud Gaugh will be singing there
And Eric Wilson will be bangin' up there, yeah
Oh and we'll be all singin', with version, with version, reggae version, reggae version, version, oh

What has been told to the wise and up-rooted
Yeah, it's gonna be revealed unto, and Sublime
Rudy Rudy Rudy
Can't fight against the youth, right now
Them are rude, rude people
Can't fight against the resistance, oh right now
Them are rude, rude people

We gonna rule this land among children
We gonna rule this land

'Cause when that rhythm it was playin' on my guitar
On my guitar

I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there

When I was a youth it was the best day
It was the best day of my life
We had the 89' vision

We didn't fuss or no fight
When all the little daughters wanna be my wife
When that rhythm it was playin' on my guitar
On my guitar

I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
Had to be there

Jailhouse gets empty
Rudy gets plenty
Baton stick gets shorter
Rudy gets taller, taller
And fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong, and we're rude, rude people
Can't fight against the youth

Go!
And I won't give it up to you
And I feel love, feel love, love, love

[Pre-Chorus]
Jailhouse gets empty
Rudy gets plenty
The baton stick gets shorter
Rudy gets taller

[Chorus]
'Em fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong
Them are rude, rude people
Can't fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong
'Em are rude, rude people

[Verse 1]
Now, when I was a youth in 1983
It was the best day of my life
Had the 89 vision
We didn't fuss or no fight
When all the little daughters wanna be my wife
A vision
It was playin' on my guitar, on my guitar
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
And the rhythm playin'
I know that I'm gonna be there, yeah
Bud Gaugh will be singing there
And Eric Wilson will be bangin' out there, yeah
And we'll be all singin', with version, with version
Reggae version, version, version, version, oh

What has been told to the wise and up-rooted?
It's gonna be revealed unto you babes, and Sublime

Rudy, Rudy, Rudy

[Chorus]
Can't fight against the youth
Right now, them are rude, rude people
Can't fight against the resistance
Oh, right now, 'em are rude, rude people

We gonna rule this land among children
We gonna rule this land

[Verse 2]
'Cause when that rhythm, it was playin' on my guitar
On my guitar
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
Oh, when I was a youth, it was the best day
It was the best day of my life
We had the 89' vision
We didn't fuss or no fight
When all the little daughters wanna be my wife
When that rhythm, it was playin on my guitar
On my guitar
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
I had to be there
Had to be there

[Solo]

[Pre-Chorus]
Jailhouse gets empty
And Rudy gets plenty
Baton stick gets shorter
Rudy gets taller, taller

[Chorus]
'Em fight against the youth
'Cause we're strong
Them are rude, rude people
Can't fight against the youth

I’m 30, my 18 month baby girl is asleep inside and I’m sunning, swimming, and rocking out to Sublime Gold playlist on YouTube. If I could tell my 13 year old self I’d still be doing this as a mom I don’t know if she’s believe me... But she would, because Sublime is forever imprinted in my soul from the first moment I heard them. I’ll never forget it- My oldest of 3 older brothers (whose 6 years my elder) just came home with his drivers license. He was 16 I was 10 and we were a music family. He said me and my other 2 brothers should all go for a drive with him. I somehow got shotgun, he said “Sara, you’ll love this band”. Lord was he right. I was hooked. All I could listen to for years. Wish you were still here Bradley, wish we could have heard all the genius music inside your soul that was waiting to come out. I hope to hear it someday at a concert in heaven with you and Lou and all your true fans💜 RIP

@Brian Onesko still a legend. I'm getting nostalgic chills all over my entire body and tears in my eyes.
