Dekker's own songs did not go to the extremes of many other popular rude boy songs, which reflected the violence and social problems associated with ghetto life, though he did introduce lyrics that resonated with the rude boys, starting with one of his best-known songs, "007 (Shanty Town)". He recorded an album called Black & Dekker (1980), which featured his previous hits backed by The Rumour, Graham Parker's backing band and Akrylykz (featuring Roland Gift, later of Fine Young Cannibals). A re-recorded version of "Israelites" was released in 1980 on the Stiff label, followed by other new recordings: Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers to Cross" and "Book. Dekker's next album, Compass Point (1981), was produced by Robert Palmer. The Song We Used to Sing" (1970) – Trojan. Licking Stick" (1971) – Trojan. It Gotta Be So" (1972) – Trojan.

The Best of Desmond Dekker. Desmond Dekker – Israelites. Desmond Dekker said he wrote the song while walking home as he overheard a couple arguing about money, the man couldn't make enough money to provide for his wife and kids aka "Babylon". keeping poor people poor, while they struggle just to survive doing whatever menial work they can find. This how I heard it used, but the Jamaican-English Dictionary spells it "gyou" and states other meanings altogether: as a noun falsehood, pretentiousness - as a verb to act pretentiously. They also say it's of Scottish origin. Perhaps, like many words it passed into Jamaican slang with a different meaning.
Desmond Dekker (16 July 1941 – 25 May 2006) was a Jamaican ska, rocksteady and reggae singer-songwriter and musician. Together with his backing group the Aces (consisting of Wilson James and Easton Barrington Howard), he had one of the earliest international reggae hits with Israelites (1968). Other hits include 007 (Shanty Town) (1967), It Mek (1969) and You Can Get It If You Really Want (1970). Popular Desmond Dekker songs.
