To see a star player spit
A message to you, Dioufy

Notes

Apologies to The Specials for associating their sublime song with such a despicable act.

But it was first penned as a warning song, and that’s also the intention with this adaptation.

Inspired by last night’s showing of ‘Two Tone Britain’ documentary on Channel 4.

Of course, the original song was from Jamaica, first performed by Dandy Livingstone, before The Specials brought it to our attention.
