Celebrate The Bullet
The Selecter Lyrics


Celebrate the bullet,
Put your finger on the trigger,
But you don't have to pull it,
'Cos you know it won't bring them,
Back to you, back to you.

Celebrate the bullet,
But you have to snigger,
You told 'em all to shove it,
'Cos you know it won't bring them,
Back to you, back to you.

Celebrate the bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet.
Celebrate the bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet.
Celebrate the bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet.
Celebrate the bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet.

Celebrate the bullet,
Put your finger on the trigger,
But you don't have to pull it,
'Cos you know it won't bring them
Back to you, back to you.

Celebrate the bullet,
It all seems to get much bigger,
Do you really have to prove it,
'Cos you know it won't bring them,
Back to you, back to you.

Celebrate the bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet.
Celebrate the bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet.
Celebrate the bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet.
Celebrate the bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet, bullet.

@ katoness: Yeah somone once suggested that to me but if it was the case then surely one of first things you learn in school is how to abbreviate/ shorten words and they'd never have taught anyone in school to say "should of" or "could of" which when abbreviated in their proper forms from "Should have" and "Could have" would be "should've" and "could've"...

It makes no sense why people say it even if they are taking it from what they hear being said as you can't "of" something so surely they should realise when they type that it makes no sense or logic and doesn't even look right !!!

For example: Take the following sentences...
"I should have taken that free ticket I was offered" or "I could have taken that free ticket I was offered"...

Which abbreviated would be...
"I should've taken that free ticket I was offered" or "I could've taken that free ticket I was offered"...

But when people say instead...

"I should of taken that free ticket I was offered" or "I could of taken that free ticket I was offered"

Then how on earth do you "of" a ticket (or anything for that matter) !!!

Guess I'll never quite understand why people actaully say that and fail to realise that what they are typing doesn't make the slightest bit of sense or logic even if they are mistakenly hearing it when spoken as sounding like "of"... :-/

Tis a strange modern day phenomena of the internet generation and apparently a poor reflection on what youngsters are being taught in schools in the UK these days (or rather not being taught it would appear)... :-(

Fucking brilliant. The bass, the guitars...the haunting vocals. The Selecter was the most underrated band of its era.

Always thought this should be a Bond song and title

Nice Idea.Perhaps a Bond movie with all background music by the Selecter.

It's a shame this album sank without a trace upon its release during 1981. The 2 Tone boom was fading and various synth pop acts were beginning to emerge. I'd say this album and The Beat's Wha'ppen are the two lost classics of 1981.

A lotof dj's refused to play including mike read because the death of john lennon was still very raw

Couldn't agree more mate. The 2 best albums from the '2-tone' era for me

SoulStylistJukeBox My mum and aunt were fans so this got regular plays at our house. I'd put on shows for them and this tune and The Stranglers "Peaches" were faves to be performed. Good times and great memories 😎

Hauntingly beautiful, it speaks to me even more all these years later.

That fantastic guitar riff, that bass (WTF?!), the tuning of the snare drum, love it all.

George Roughneck

Such a great freaking song. And it still hold up till this day
