Smell Yer Ska

lyrics

If your life is empty, sad and lonely
And other people are controlling you
If you've never felt so down and alone
Don't you worry, gadgie, cos we're here for you

If someone is giving you a stresser
Well, gadgie you've just gotta get them telt
Cos you know that life is for livin' and lovin'
And there is ska to be smelt...

You can smell yer ska (smell yer ska)
You can smell yer ska sisters and brothers

Gadgie, has your woman gone and left you?
And did she turn out just to be a belter?
Did she break your heart and shatter your dreams?
But wouldn't listen to a word you telt her?

And if you seek salvation in a bottle
Cos nothing that you touch ever turns out right
Don't you give up cos the journey is dark
We're here to help you find the sunlight...

You can smell yer ska (smell yer ska)
You can smell yer ska sisters and brothers

No-one can take that away

If you think that everyone's your enemy
And that people love to see you fail
And that it feels like you v the world
Don't you worry, gadgie, cos we've been there
If you cannae get your head together
And some days you just can't shake the guilt
There ain't no shame in having some fun
And there is ska to be smelt
If you feel like arguing with idiots
Dinnae do it, it'll twist yer melon
We got your front and we got your back
And there's your ska to be smelt...

You can smell yer ska (smell yer ska)
You can smell yer ska sisters and brothers
Smell yer ska
