Hun debuutalbum verscheen in 1985, Play The Game Right. Hun grootste succes was het album Fallen Is Babylon, waarmee ze een reggae Grammy Award wisten te bemachtigen in 1998.

Songtekst

Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing now
Look who's dancing
Oh look who's dancing
Look who's dancing now

Well, first the dance floor
Was like a forbidden land
Where people would never dare to go
But now everyone's doing it
I said it's a dance galore

Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing now
Look who's dancing
Oh look who's dancing
Look who's dancing now

And some are dancing on their feet
Some are jumping off the floor
And look at old Granny "B"
She got the, she caught the, she knows the groove for sure

Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing now, right around
Look who's dancing
Who is dancing
Look who's dancing now, get on the floor

Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing now, around the world
Look who's dancing
Oh look who's dancing
Look who's dancing now

And some are dancing on their feet
Some are jumping off the floor
And look at old Tauter him
He got the, he got the, he got the, he got the beat for sure

Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing
Look who's dancing now
Look who's dancing
Check the dancing
Look who's dancing now, get on the floor

Do the ska, the rock steady, the ridim and blues
And if you catch them, then you do the della move
It nuh mek nuh sense to sit down, when you know you can groove
Any type of dance you do, you neither win or lose

And if your choice is reggae, you don't need nuh dancing shoes
Suh listen to the message, and you know you won't lose
Look who come, come dancing pow we dancing floor again
Some a dem a enemy, some a dem a friend

Some a dem a mother and father, some a dem a children
Some a dem a loafer who a follow the trend
And some a dem a just dey ya as we good brethen

That's why we ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff and rugged
Ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff and rugged
Ra ra ra ragga muffin
Ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff and rugged

That's why we ra ra ragga
That's why we ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff and rugged
Ra ra ra ragga muffin
So we ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff and rugged
Ra ra ra ragga muffin

That's why we flash certain dancing style, it sound well wicked
If a guy woulda really try, so you know him stupid
Exorcism, devilism we nuh deal wid
Our faith in jah jah man, it well, well, well solid
So pray every day and ask for strength and knowledge

That's why we ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff and rugged
That's why we ra ra ra ragga muffin
That's why we ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff and rugged
