about

"Spaghetti Skank" is Shots' third album. Released in september 2008, blends the ska-original sounds of previous album with new funk and soul contamination, yet it keeps close to the foundation ska that ignite the band's core.

Including 8 original songs and four covers (two from the Skatalites, one from Elvis Presley and one from Lee 'Scratch' Perry), Spaghetti Skank was a smash hit in the Italian Ska Scene, defining Shots in the Dark as one of the most representative bands of Italian Ska.

The download includes the full digital booklet with full lyrics and memorabilia from latest 10 years of Shots' life.

Track Name: Rising!
(ahh, can't you see we're rising?)

Hey you, can't you see we're rising up?
We can't stand no more
of you fuss and fighting now!

Yo, hey sir, put down your gun now
no police allowed into this yard now
soldiers out of this Babylon
the only shots we want are the one we play loud!

Hey you, can't you see we're rising up?
We can't stand no more
of you fuss and fighting now!

Yo, hey sir, put down your gun now
no police allowed into this yard now
soldiers out of this Babylon
the only shots we want are the one we play loud!

You gotta protest the war
of you freedom fighters
no matter what,
we gotta stand united!
Track Name: Heartbreaker
You're no good! You heartbreaker,
you won't have the chance to break my heart again,
that's enough! You heartbreaker,
you won't have the chance to break my heart again.

I don't know why I did belive and what can I do,
I used to live out of trouble,
but since I met you baby I've got a question for you:
&lquot;What have I done to deserve this trouble?&rguot;

You're like poison in my drink,
you hypnotize me with your moves
with all your drugs baby I can't think,
but it's a matter of fact that you can only loose...

You're no good! You heartbreaker,
you won't have the chance to break my heart again,
that's enough! You heartbreaker,
you won't have the chance to break my heart again.

You are unordinary, girl, you're wasting my time
and I know that, oh yeah,
You are unnecessary, so come on and carry all your things
and leave me like that...

You're no good! You heartbreaker,
you won't have the chance to break my heart again,
that's enough! You heartbreaker,
you won't have the chance to break my heart again.
Track Name: If you're not around
If you're not around it sounds better to me!
blem blem blem my music I've still got my riddim
(it's a) long long long long long time you don't join my session
and your face is not saying that you are having fun to me Ye-he-he-hea!

If you're not around it sounds better to me!
blem blem blem my music I've still got my riddim
(it's a) long long long long long time you don't join my session
and your face is not saying that you are having fun to me Ye-he-he-hea!

I found my therapy in a sweet soul music,
Nobody can not drop me down now,
Somebody stole my words oh yeah they want my music,
I'm gonna take it back in town!
If you're not around!

If you're not around it sounds better to me!
blem blem blem my music I've still got my riddim
(it's a) long long long long long time (that) you don't join my session
and your face is not saying that you are having fun to me Ye-he-he-hea!

That's why I don't want you around I don't want you around now!
This music, we still back in town, I still back in Town now!

I found my therapy in a sweet soul music,
Nobody can not drop me down now,
Somebody stole my words oh yeah they want my music,
I'm gonna take it back in town!
If you're not around!
Track Name: My funny Palestine
Blazing buildings, tanks are taking over,
no man in the streets but behind the windows
there is an increasing rage, people callin' justice,
there is a growing hate, people fightin'

Right to be shoot, right to be blame
Right to be a people robbed of their place
Right to be angry night and day

Right to be accused, right to be blamed
Right to be a people searchin' for a bed
Right to be angry night and day
Track Name: In the city
How much can you get when you’re down in the city?
I’m going out to mess up this town!
How much can get when you’re down in the city?
I’m taking back what they steal from my hands.

Use you uptown then they hyde you downtown now!
They placed you there n you’ll be standing alone, now...
Take me downtown where they’re burning it all down,
I bust you all with my Rudical sound wouh!

Chain chain you hear when you’re locked in the city!
Bang bang you hear when you’re down on the ground.
He’s dead my god, oh my god whatta pitty...
He still a rebel comin out from downtown!

How much can you get when you’re down in the city?
I’m going out to mess up this town!
How much can get when you’re down in the city?
I’m taking back what they steal from my hands.

How much can get when you’re down in the city?
This you can get oh god whatta pitty!
Bang!
Track Name: Life
People wish they go to heaven,
but I would keep my feet on earth!
My music keeps me going, fellow,
don't you come with me,
don't you go with me on earth!

Please stand, to your right!
And look to the flag!
Start rallin'!
Alright! Alright! Goodbye!

Hidden here today in a different way,
monday, tuesday, everyday!
Waitin' for the miracle to knock on that door,
(But) nobody sounds and nobody shows!

People wish they go to heaven,
but I would keep my feet down earth!
Somebody would tell me that's better
Won't you follow me
Don't you come with me on earth!

Please stand, to your right!
And look to the flag!
Start rallin'!
Alright! Alright! Goodbye!

I've dried out some brews and I can even feel better
Hey chico hasta la vista 80 cent por cerveza
Done defending money instead of deliver
Drink some of this juice and you'll go trough this hell now

Hidden here today in a different way,
monday, tuesday everyday!
Waitin' for the miracle to knock on that door,
But nobody sounds and nobody shows!

People wish they go to heaven,
but I would Keep my feet on earth!
Somebody would tell me that's better
Won't you follow me
Don't you come with me on earth!
Track Name: Return to sender
I gave a letter to the postman,
He put it his sack.
Bright in early next morning,
He brought my letter back.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.
We had a quarrel, a lovers spat
I write Im sorry but my letter keeps coming back.

So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special d.
Bright in early next morning
It came right back to me.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such person, no such so.

This time Im gonna take it myself
And put it right in her hand.
And if it comes back the very next day
Then Ill understand - the writing on it

Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.
Track Name: Just keep it up
you once told me
how you loved me
and told me things that
made me shake inside

how you loved me
how you need me
but now you turn your back
on the love we once shared

your love will drain out
just wait and see
that your loving heart
belongs to me

just keep it up
you heartbreaker
just keep it up
you love faker
just keep it up
and see what happens

your love will drain out
just wait and see
that your loving heart
belongs to me

then you will wake up
and realize
your kind of love
can come to mine

just keep it up
you know i'm talking to you
just keep it up
you heartbreaker
just keep it up
and see what happens

just keep it up
you heartbreaker
just keep it up
you love faker
just keep it up
and see what happens
