Buster bowl me over with your bogus dance
Shuffle me off my feet
Even though I'll keep on runnin'
I'll never get to Orange street
Although Prince Buster’s success had completely dried up by the mid-seventies, he was about to be saved.
With Madness, and the other prominent bands in the 2Tone ska revival — The Specials, The Selecter — his old standards received enough reverence that he experienced something of a second life.
The success of Madness and this tribute saved him, at least financially.
