Lil' Dub Chefin'

Lil' Dub Chefin' is a reggae reworking of M1 A1. It is the most reworked track on Laika Come Home, and is the only one to feature any new vocal tracks (all the vocals on the track are new). It also features vocals from Specials legend Terry Hall. A great slice of popular reggae and probably the standout track on Laika Come Home. The title is a joke on the title of M1A1 - the restaurant chain 'Little Chef' is very big in the UK at motorway service stations, up until about 10 years ago it was virtually omnipresent with no alternative. Thus, lil' chefin' , would call to mind driving up and down motorways and roads. Add the 'dub' for reggae flavour and you have the song title.

Lyrics:

[Damon]
M1 A1
Thousand miles an hour
Gorillaz got the bass drum
Gorillaz say want some, some

M1 A1
Thousand miles an hour
Gorillaz got the bass drum
Gorillaz say want some, some

La la la la la la la la la hey
La la la la la la la la la hey
La la la la la la la la la hey

[Terry Hall / Damon]
M1 A1
Thousand miles an hour
Gorillaz got the bass drum
Gorillaz say want some, some

M1 A1
Thousand miles an hour
Gorillaz got the bass drum
Gorillaz say want some, some

La la la la la la la la la hey
La la la la la la la la la hey
La la la la la la la la la hey

M1 A1
Thousand miles an hour
Gorillaz got the bass drum
Gorillaz say want some, some

M1 A1
Thousand miles an hour
Gorillaz got the bass drum
Space Monkeyz say want some
