Default Unknown Two-tone, song Please help

The following lyrics are to a two-tone Ska song with male vocalists that came out pre 1997, it is a fun upbeat song with trumpet, guitar and vocals (and a slide whistle). I have the tune on aÖgasp - mix tape, but have no idea who sings it, the title, nor on which album it can be found. I originally thought Letís Go Bowling or maybe even Toasters, but, on which album? I would eventually like to acquire the song on CD. Anyway, here are the lyrics, and thanks in advance.
Scootering, in the summertime and Iím
Scootering with girls on my mind and Iím
Scootering with of friend of mine today
Hup hup hup
Scootering, fun in the sun cuz Iím
Scootering, playing Ska on my walkman, Iím
Scootering, with a friend of mine todayÖ
Gonna drag my dusty old Vespa out of the garage
Call up all my Scooter club friends and weíre gonna rally up north, stay the weekendÖstay at some lodge
Scootering, my friends and me, weíre just
Scootering, gotta see what there is to see
Scootering, in the summer sun today
Scootering, yeah I havenít a care cuz Iím
Scootering, my best friendís got no hair!
Scootering, in the summer sun today
Letís go
Hup Hup Hup
Scootering in the summertime and Iím
Scootering, Rude girls on my mind and Iím
Scootering with a friend of mine today
Scootering, were having fun in the sun cuz weíre
Scootering, playing Ska on my walkman and Iím
Scootering, in the summer sun today
Riding all night (on by?) the sunís going down and itís time to stop for the night, my rude girl by my side we prepare for the mornings ride. Taking it all in I know where Iíve been and this boyís not about to give in. So let me go! Iíve got to go while this road is calling me on. So Bye ByeÖ
Hup Hup Hup
Then the lyrics get a little fast for me to transcribe, but he mentions feeliní Ire and visiting New York, Florida (Mickey Mouse), Mardi Gras fest with Zydeco music, being happy with his Rude girl by his side and listening to Ska on his Sony walkman then it wraps up.
