Lyrics

Ahh Ahhh, Ahh Ahhh
You better beware, you better take care
You better watch out if you’ve got long black hair
Keep looking behind, you’ll go out of your mind
You better not go, you never know what you’ll find
Ahh Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahhh

Don’t look into his eyes, you’ll be surprised
If don’t know what going on behind his disguise
Nobody knows where Buster goes
He’ll steal your woman out from under your nose

Does anyone know the way, did we hear someone say
(We just haven’t got a clue what to do)
Does anyone know the way, there’s got to be a way
To blockbuster

The cops are out, they’re running about
Don’t know if they’ll ever be able to blockbuster out
Just got to be caught, he’s got to be taught
Cause he is more evil then anyone here ever thought

Does anybody know the way, to hear someone say
(We just haven’t got a clue what to do)
Does anybody know the way, there’s got to be a way
To blockbuster

Does anybody know the way, to hear someone say
(We just haven’t got a clue what to do)
Does anybody know the way, there’s got to be a way
To blockbuster

Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahh
Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahh
Buster buster blockbuster
Buster buster blockbuster
(fade ’til end)

Songwriters: CHAPMAN MICHAEL DONALD / CHINN NICHOLAS BARRY
