"Rudie Can't Fail" - The Clash

Hear them sayin'!
A    A    A     A        D   A    A      
How you get a rude and a reckless?
A     A     A      A        G   A   A
Don't you be so crude and a feckless
A      A    A      A       F#m F#m
You been drinking brew for breakfast
A  D  A     A
Rudie can't fail

So we reply
I know that my life make you nervous
But I tell you that I can't live in service
Like the doctor who was born for a purpose
Rudie can't fail

A            E       F#m
I went to market, to realise my soul
A          E                  F#m
Cos what I need, I just don't have
A          E                F#m
First they curse, then they press me 'til I hurt
A  E    A
Rudie can't fail!

We hear them sayin'!
Now first you must cure your temper
Then you find a job in the paper
You need someone for a saviour
Oh Rudie can't fail

We reply
Now we get a rude and a reckless
We been seen lookin' cool and a speckless
We been drinking brew for breakfast
So Rudie can't fail

So where you wanna go today?
Hey, boss man!
You're looking pretty smart
In your chicken skin suit
You think you're pretty hot
In your pork pie hat
But...Rudie can't fail

D E         F#m    
Rudie can't fail
D E         F#m    
Rudie can't fail
D E         A 
Rudie can't fail
