oi to the punks and oi to the skins

This got mentioned in comments, and it turns out that Youtube has both versions. So, without further ado--

"Oi To The World" by the Vandals

"Oi To The World" as covered by No Doubt



Haji was a punk just like any other boy
And he never had no trouble till he started up his oi band
Safe in the garage or singing in the tub
Till Haji went too far and he plugged in at the pub

T'was a cold christmas eve when Trevor and the skins
Popped in for a pint and to nick a pack of crisps
Trevor liked the music but not the unity
He unwound Haji's turban and he knocked him to his knees

If God came down on Christmas day
I know exactly what he'd say
He'd say oi to the punks and oi to the skins-
But oi to the world and everybody wins!

Haji was a bloody mess, he ran out through the crowd
He said we'll meet again we are bloody but unbowed
Trevor called his bluff and told him where to meet
Christmas day on the roof down at 20 Oxford Street

If God came down on Christmas day
I know exactly what he'd say
He'd say oi to the punks and oi to the skins
But oi to the world and everybody wins!

On the roof with the nunchucks Trevor broke a lot of bones
But Haji had a sword like that guy in Indiana Jones

Police sirens wailing, a bloody dying man
Haji was alone and abandoned by his band
Trevor was there fading and still so full of hate
When the skins left him there and went down the fire escape

Oi! oi!

But then Haji saw the north star shining more then ever
So he made a tourniquet from his turban saving Trevor
They repelled down the roof with the rest of the turban
And went back to the pub where they bought each other bourbon



If God came down on Christmas day
I know exactly what he'd say
He'd say oi to the punks and oi to the skins-
But oi to the world and everybody wins!

Oi! oi!
