The Specials; ‘Stereotype’ Lyrics

Here are the full lyrics to The Specials' song, ‘Stereotype’ (parts one and two). I couldn't seem to find the lyrics to the second part anywhere (and the first part was often transcribed wrong as well), so I thought I'd have a go myself. I think they're fairly accurate, but some bits I just couldn't work out for sure. Anyway, here they are:

He's just a sterotype.
He drinks his age in pints.
He has girls every night,
He doesn't really exist.

He spends his weekends with a loads of blokes.
He forgets the punch line when he tells a joke.
He wants to stay out, he don't want to go home,
'till his nicotine-fingers are stuck down his throat

He's just a sterotype.
He drinks his age in pints.
He drives home pissed at night,
and he listens to his stereo.

He blamed his fiancée when he caught VD.
The doctor said no drink for seventeen weeks.
He wants to go out, but he has to stay home,
sit in and watch colour TV on his own.

He's just a sterotype.
He drinks his age in pints.
He drives home pissed at night,
and he listens to his stereo.

The tablets are finished, the cure is complete.
He hasn't had a drink now for seventeen weeks.
Seventeen pints, tonight is the night,
it goes straight to his head, he ends up in a fight.
  <Police officer: X-ray, Tango, Delta, 5-1-8, Hotel: stand-by>

The police chase him home through the dark rainy night.
Fluorescent jam sandwhich with flashing blue light.
His mum's waiting up, she hopes he's alright,
but he's wrapped 'round the lampost on Saturday night.

He's just a sterotype.
He drinks his age in pints.
He has girls every night,
He doesn't really exist.


Me uncle joe bucky doe,
For he never have a stereo.
So I buy a little stereo and I want to check out da girl.
So I said to this girl, ‘Step up on my yard, we go check out my stereo’.
So me go sly; me go say,
Me take the little girly na me yard,
Me show her little system.
‘Hey girl me system bad, gonna listen to me stereo y'know?’.
I want a little piece, and just touch dis.
I want a <toot' suck>, and just touch dat.

All I want is me stereo
All I want is me stereo
I don't drink no beer.
I don't drink no something called whiskey,
'cause I don't want so feel frisky.
All I smoke is my 'erbs.
'Erbs, and my stereo.

T'ings get from bad to worse, I can't even walk down the street.
I don't feel easy, because what they call me,
they call me ‘the stereotype’.
‘He's the one who's got the stereo’, stereo.

My uncle joe told me 'bout my stereo
For him bucky doe.
Uncle joe. Uncle joe.
He never have a stereo. Bucky doe.

Leave me girl.
I don't want you,
I don't need no drink,
I don't want no whisky to feel so frisky;
All I want is my stereo.
So here is what I say,
Come down town today and buy you stereo.

If you don't want to drink or go to pub.
'Cause I tell you something,
you drink and drive you bound to get kill.

Oh, so say you stop into you flat,
and you feel so relaxed, with you stereo.
And don't forget the thing, call the, call the, call the ‘weed’.

I don't need no speed to make me go fast,
Just give me little 45 and 33,
'pon me stereo.
I want to be free, stereo.

I'm, I'm, I'm a stereotype.
I'm a stereotype. Ahh.
And that's no joke.
You got no feeling as I watching you switch on tonight, ahhh.

I feel the stereo.
More bass. More bass. More bass. More treble.

Leave me girl, I don't want this now.
I just want me stereo.
And, ah music be, oh lord[?look].
Stereo, stereo, stereo, stereo, stereo, 'till it's sore, stereo.

Leave me.
Just leave me and my stereo,
because I am a stereotype.
And that's the way I wanna to be;
I don't want to be hyped.

Move your, ahh[?]. Bring.[?]
Leave my, leave my stereo alone.
Leave my stereo.
Don't turn my stereo off.
