The Banana Republic Song
By Selwyn Duke

Jail-bro, Jail-ail-ail-bro
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Jail, me say jail, me say jail, me say jail
Me say jail, me say jail-ail-ail-bro
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

Play all night and sittin' like a bum
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Whack opponents till the tyranny come
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

Come, Mister tax man, tax the "man" now
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Come, Mister tax man, drain their accounts now
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

It's jackboot, jackboot, on-the-neck CRUNCH!
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Jackboot, jackboot, jail 'em by the BUNCH!
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

Jail, me say jail-ail-ail-bro
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Jail, me say jail, me say jail till they fail
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

A federal punch, the "man" is ripe now
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Chide the deadly white spider
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

It's jackboot, jackboot, on-the-neck CRUNCH!
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Jackboot, jackboot, eat 'em for LUNCH!
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

Jail, me say jail-ail-ail-bro
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Jail, me say jail, me say jail till they wail...
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

Come, Mister tax man, start tax plan now
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Come, Mister tax man, tax 'em down low
Darkness come and me hate ma' home

Jail-bro, jail-ail-ail-bro
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
Jail, me say jail, me say let 'em all flail
Me say jail, me say jail-ail-ail-bro
Darkness come and me hate ma' home
