"Rude" is the debut single by Canadian reggae fusion band Magic! from their debut studio album, Don't Kill the Magic.

"Rude" was named after the reggae term "rude boy" and originally based on a real-life situation. The lead singer of Magic!, Nasri, had been in an unhealthy relationship with a previous girlfriend. One day after an argument erupted and she became harsh, Nasri began singing the lines "Why you gotta be so rude/ don't you know I'm human too" in what he describes as a "dark vibe." However, the concept did not work with the band well so it was revised and eventually changed so that Nasri was still dating her, and was asking her father if he could propose to her.

Saturday morning jumped out of bed
And put on my best suit
Got in my car and raced like a jet
All the way to you
Knocked on your door with heart in my hand
To ask you a question
Because I know that you're an old fashioned man
Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes, because I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing
Till the day I die
Tough luck my friend
But the answer is no
Why you got to be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you got to be so rude?
I'm going to marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah, no matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you got to be so rude?
I hate to do this
You leave no choice
I can't live without her
Love me or hate me
We will be boys standing at that altar
Or we will run away
To another galaxy, you know
You know she's in love with me
She will go anywhere I go
Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes, because I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing
Till the day I die
Tough luck my friend
Because the answer is still no
Why you got to be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you got to be so rude?
I'm going to marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
No matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you got to be so rude?
Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes, because I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing
Till the day I die
Tough luck my friend
But no still means no
Why you got to be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you got to be so rude?
I'm going to marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
No matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you got to be so rude?
Why you got to be so rude?
