Hit me with your rhythm stick

Ian Dury, NYC 1978

In the deserts of Sudan and the gardens of Japan,
From Milan to Yucatan, ev’ry woman, ev’ry man.
Hit me your rhythm stick, hit me, hit me
Je t’adore, ich liebe dich
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Hit me with your rhythm stick
Hit me slowly, hit me quick
Hit me, hit me, hit me!
In the wilds of Borneo
And the vineyards of Bordeaux
Eskimo, Arapaho
Move their body to and fro
Hit me with your rhythm stick, hit me, hit me
Das ist gut, c’est fantastique
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Hit me with your rhythm stick.
It’s nice to be a lunatic
Hit me, hit me, hit me!
Hit me, hit me, hit…. !
In the dock of Tiger Bay
On the road to Mandalay
From Bombay to Santa Fe
O’er the hills and far away
Hit me with your rhythm stick, hit me, hit me
C’est si bon, mm? Ist es nicht?
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Hit me with your rhythm stick.
Two fat persons, click, click, click
Hit me, hit me, hit me!
Hit me, hit me, hit me!
Hit me! (repeat)

It’s not always about computers….
