And here’s a little message for the ladies in France

Huh huh

Je m’appelle, Melle Mel

Donne moi la petit mademoiselle

Donne moi cinq, donne moi six

Donne moi huit, neuf, dix

I’m seein this girl that I just adore

I’m seein this girl that what I never saw before

The way she was swaying and doing the swing

I had to let her know just about my thing

I’m the M, R, N E-Double S

Come on, ah fly girl, and put me to a test

And I’ll rock you, until you give me the rest

I keep on it, until you start to fess

Rahiem, in your life, what more can you ask

I bet you can’t think of a greater task

I make my light shine on your cloudy days

You can surf if you want to, on my waves

I caress your soft body on those mellow nights

A continuous thing, to the morning light

It’s reality, it’s not a dream

It’s nothing less than the best when it’s from Rahiem

Now it’s my turn so understand

That I’m the Kid Creole, and I’m a ladies man

I don’t, have a lot of women hangin on my steez

Only one fine lady that you better believe

I say Annette’s her name, and that’s the truth

I give a lot of things up, before I turn her loose

It’s just her, and that’s simple and plain

And that’s the only way I run my game

Well I’ma, Cowboy and I’m the real McCoy

I’m chocolate all over like an Almond Joy

Bowlegged cool brother and you will agree

On top of the world for the ladies to see

Gonna hip gonna hop gonna rock the spot

Gonna make everybody wanna rock rock rock

Gonna do it to the East, wanna do it to the West

Gonna make you relax right upon your chest

Grandmaster Flash, is willing and able

He’s the king of the cuts on two turntables

He’s the GRAND, GRAND, the master man

He’s so nice with his hands he don’t need no band

Rocks 45’s, and 33’s

Rocks boys men women and young ladies

He can slice so precise it’s almost fun

And he makes better love than a mick makes money

Slick Rick, Slick Rick, Slick Rick, Slick Rick

Slick Rick, Slick Rick (ha ha hah hah hah), hooooooo-ho!!

Owwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five World War III

Life is a game of business

And in the end we sight (swear to god)

The new and old are bought and sold

And everybody thinks they’re right

War is a game of business

A game we shouldn’t play (swear to god)

Cause men with guns killed all our sons

They blew us all away

They called it

World (paranoina!)

War (it’s almost over)

3 (cause nobody hears what the people say)

Realistically the bombs are ready

Technically, nuclear by name

Capability of total destruction

Radioactive death and flame

There is talk of a firey doom

Prophesied since the dawn of time

In a world of bloodshed, mass confusion

Killer diseases, pollution and crime

Man is in conflict with nature

And that is why there’s so much sin

Mother nature’s delicate balance will fix it so nobody wins

In world (catastrofic)

War (reaganomic)

3 (and nobody hears what the people say)

World (it’s atomic)

War (catastrofic)

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

A thousand miles away from home

A mortally wounded soldier dies

And on the blood stained battlefield

His life flashes before his eyes

Before he dies the man saw Jesus

And Jesus Christ took his hand

And on the soldier’s dying breath

The good lord took him to the promised land

Cause there’s.. No (people living)

More (people dying)

Pain (everybody disappeared)

After world (people living)

War (people crying)

3 (ha ha ha ha)

Breakdown, pain…

1984, see the world at war

Your darkest fears of reality are knockin’ down your door

Drones and mutations, clones and deviations

And there’s no one that can escape the nuclear revelation

Because

War is a game of business

And in the end we sight (swear to god)

The new and old are bought and sold

And everybody thinks they’re right

World (paranoina!)

War (it’s almost over)

3 (ha ha ha ha)

The silver moon, the midnight stars, Jupiter collides with mars

And out of the darkness spirits roar

To cast revenge on the earth once more

The leaders of the world are hypnotized

By wizards, dark and in disguise

Brought to earth by an evil hand

To devour souls in a brand new land

They let the leader think that war brings peace

And out come the one with the mark of the beast

There’s evil behind closed doors

In the year of 1984

Life is a game of business

And in the end we sight (swear to god)

The new and old are bought and sold

And everybody thinks they’re right

War is a game of business

A game we shouldn’t play (swear to god)

Cause men with guns killed all our sons

They blew us all away

World (catastrofic)

War (reaganomic)

3 (ha ha ha ha)

Long ago and all too soon

2 different wars fought on the moon

One put (creators[?]) on it first

Then we blew futher in the universe

Both of these were nuclear wars

Breaking universal laws

Then falling stars and meteorites

Dropped to earth by day and night

Twisters, earthquakes, hurricanes

Volcanos, drops and torrential rain

Then one day, the UFO’s

Came to see the whole world explode

We will pay the ultimate price

And a lesson is to be learned

When we play with nuclear fire

Everybody’s gonna get burned

War is a game of business

A game we shouldn’t play (swear to god)

Cause men with guns killed all our sons

They blew us all away

Pain! Pain! (so let the music play on)

Between the boundaries of time and space

Was the planet earth and the human race

A world alive and centuries old

With veins of diamonds, silver and gold

Snow capped mountains over looked the land

And the deep blue sea made love with the sand

Full grown strands of evergreen hair

Kissed the sky with a breath of air

Where exotic fish once swam in the sea

And the eagles soared in the sky so free

But the foolish clan that walked the land

Was the creature, that they called man

They’re cannibalistic, paranoid fools

Tricking each other with games and rules

Training their men to kill and fight

Moving and stearing their mechanized might

Only thought that man had in mind

Was to conquer the world and the rest of mankind

And with the thought that they were right

They gave you permission to take a man’s life

The ones you killed fought just as hard

Then you even had the nerve to pray to god

But god don’t wanna hear all your mess

When you ain’t the one that he laid to rest

The devil’s children with no disgrace

Crushed and killed the human race

While they got rich off the games and war

What in the hell were you fighting for

A silly ass metal, a stupid parade

For all those innocent people you slaid

And after that, you couldn’t even get a job

Cause fighting that war made you a slob

A sergeant and major, a corporal, Lieutenant

Titles and positions were all invented

You, and me, and all this mess

Are just a bunch of pieces in a game of chess

It’s all the same, a third world war

A blood thirsty massacre just like before

It’s genocide, three billion tears

Feeding on a war every twenty years

Then one day we heard the sound

Of the whole damn world tumbling down

Just one big boom, and what do you know

The world is a ghetto, high and low

Crumbling buildings all around

Man’s creation burned to the ground

Chaos, panic, fear and pain

Days of radioactive rain

Grotesque figures burned alive

Miraculously seem to survive

Everything of reality is the science fiction on TV

Mutant dog and sabertoothed rats

Eat men with guns and baseball bats

The dead won’t die, the (rudie[?]) won’t cry

And everybody’s asking the question “why”

Until swarms of millions walk from the city

And thousands more went underground below

With their head held down in their own pity

Wondering where, they do not know

Cause in this game we had a chance

But we blew it for cheap thrills and romance

Maybe one day we’ll get another play

But until then remember what I say

Life is a game of business

And in the end we sight (swear to god)

The new and old are bought and sold

And everybody thinks they’re right

War is a game of business

A game we shouldn’t play (swear to god)

Cause men with guns killed all our sons

They blew us all away

Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five Step Off

[Chorus:]

Step, step, step, step, step off

Because you got to get lost because you know you’re soft, uh-huh

Step, step, step, step, step off

Because you got to get lost because you know you’re soft, uh-huh-huh

Step, step, step, step, step off

Because you got to get lost because you know you’re soft

I was sittin’ on the corner just a-wastin’ my time

When I realised I was the king of the rhyme

I got on the microphone and what do you see?

Huh, the rest was my legacy

I was born to be the king of the be-bop swing

To have stallions and medallions, big diamond rings

I own a castle and a yacht, two million in gold

Because rap is the game that I control

I’m like Shakespeare, I’m a pioneer

Because I made rap somethin’ people wanted to hear

See, before my reign, it was the same old same

“To the bop with the bop”, that street-talk game

So if you ever, let me make this clear

If you ever think that we’re steppin’ out of here

You ever think you’re gettin’ up, down, around or in

Huh huh, you better think again, my friend

Because the door is closed and we’re in town

And the only place you can go is dowwwwwwwwwwn!

(Oohweeoohweeoohweeooooooooooooooooooooooohh

Step, step, step, step, step off.)

Well, I’m Keith Cowboy and you’re my cow

So what you MC’s gonna do now?

It’s gonna be a slaughter and here’s my plan

You won’t even get bread and water, my man

Gonna put you on the racks like a pair of slacks

With another wack rapper tied to your back

And if you wanna hang yourself out to dry

It’s the beautiful round-up in the sky

I’m the carry-out kid when my trigger’s in cock

I’ll be carryin’ out bodies stiff as a rock

Carryin’ out a million dollars in my pockets and hand

But I carry out orders from no man

Cause anything you wanna do, I already did

You used to see me rock the house when you was a kid

But in my MC school, my class is packed

And tricks are for kids so I left your ass back

The bow-legged brother, there’ll never be another

I buy a mansion for my mother

The 24/7, the Kool-Aid smile

Say, “Hey, crack a lemon and look at my pile.”

[Chorus]

Come on

Now you know just who I am

And what I do because I’m in demand

Because I look good

Do you hear, my man?

And if you can’t take that, you chump your old hand

One girl at a time gettin’ MC

So how could you think that you rank with me?

If you only did your homework, you would surely find

When Scorp’ get girls, they all be fine

And the only girl that you could take of mine

Is the one that I left way behind

And plus you’re cheap, you’re petty, your music is trash

You need to go to the bank and get some cash

Because talkin’ don’t pay, you’re driftin’ away

When I see you on the stage, I’m-a blow you away

You’re right

There is no diff’ between me and you

Except I look good and you look through

Take that

Step, step, step, step, step off

Because you got to get lost because you know you’re soft

Little pieces of a dream is all you mean

Since the day you stepped into the MC scene

Bitin’ your moves, takin’ fake awards

Sayin’ everyone else is perpetratin’ the frauds

But you’re nothin’ but a clone of a flesh and bone

Now you’re tryin’ to play gone on the microphone

But I tell you ’bout a night and you know I’m right

When you listen to us rockin’ to the broad daylight

And then you looked in the sky and you started to cuss

But then you prayed to God that you could be like us

Then God was great and God was true

And he tried to show you how to be like you

But you still didn’t get where you wanted to go

When you gathered in a group and got your own show

Cause without the source, the force won’t survive

For eternity, the source is alive

You forgot the words of your creator

And now he’s made you a perpetrator

Forever in a world of you and a girl

A few grams in a pipe to make your head swirl

You must spread the words of the master teacher

You die by the rhymes and the streets’ll eat you

The words are a gift we will never flaunt

That’s why we’re gonna get everything we want

Just like a shadow in the night on a sight unseen

And I’m the bonafide vocal master supreme

And I’m here to run it down for the ladies and gents

For my rhymes make dollars plus they make sense

See, you’re down with Cowboy, you’ll be rockin’ the show

With King Lou, Tommy Gun and, huh, Scorpio

Kami Kaze, Clayton Savage and Eazy Mike

And goin’ down in the books is the king of the night

So if you’re ever in a battle, I’m-a make you my slave

And I’m-a give you a shovel so you can dig a grave

Leave behind all your fame and wealth

So you can say one rhyme, then bury yourself, huh

I may sound possessed, but you know I’m blessed

With the will to make sense of all this mess

I’m the power of the sun that shines in the sky

And I’m the only MC that’ll never die

So just rock and don’t stop ’til you hit the top

But when you see Mellie Mel, you’re gonna have to drop

ROCK!

And not only that

Step, step, step, step, step off

Because you got to get lost because you know you’re soft, uh-huh

Step, step, step, step, step off

Because you got to get lost because you know you’re soft, uh-huh-huh

And for all you MC’s, you heard my story

On my super-fly, cold-crushin’ fame and glory

How I rocked the children and the young ladies

I even rocked the country that was overseas

Cause I can rock anybody from any crew

Because I did it to Chaka, I’m-a do it to you

I’m-a show you how I rocked it, y’all, all night long

But when I rocked with Chaka Khan, I just said

“Chaka Khan, let me rock you, let me rock you, Chaka Khan.”, I said

“Let me rock you, that’s all I wanna do

Chaka Khan, let me rock you, let me rock you, Chaka Khan.”, I said

“Let me me rock you cause I feel for you

Chaka Khan, won’t you tell me what you wanna do?

Do you feel for me the way I feel for you

Chaka Khan, let me tell you what I wanna do

I wanna love you, wanna hug you, wanna squeeze you too

So let me take me in your arms, let me fill you with my charms, Chaka

Cause you know that I’m the one to keep you warm, Chaka

I’ll make you more than just a physical spell

I wanna rock you, Chaka baby, cause my name is Melle Mel.”

Say what, y’all

Say what

To the DJ scratch, the metro match

Cause we’re comin’ out fresh with a brand new batch

So takin’ you off into the galaxy

Is Vicious, Vicious, VICIOUS LEE!

Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five Superappin’

It was a party night, everybody was breaking

The highs were screaming and the bass was shaking

And it won’t be long till everybody knows when that

Flash was on the beat box going that

Flash was on the beat box going that

Flash was on the beat box going

And and and and

Sha na na

Italian, Caucasian, Japanese

Spanish, Indian, Negro and Vietnamese

MCs, disc jockeys to all the fly kids and the young ladies

Introducing the crew ya got to see to believe

We’re one, two, three, four, five MCs

I’m Melle Mel and I rock it so well

And I’m Mr. Ness because I rocks the best

I’m Rahiem in all the ladies’ dreams

And I’m Cowboy to make ya jump for joy

I’m Creole, solid gold

The Kid Creole playing the role

Dig this, we’re the Furious Five plus Grandmaster Flash

Giving you a blast and sure enough class

So to prove to ya all that we’re second to none

We’re gonna make five mcs sound like one

Ya gotta dip dip dive, so so socialize

Clean out your ears then open your eyes

And then pay at the door as a donation

To hear the best sounds in creation

He’s a disco dream of a mean machine

And when it comes to size, ya see what we mean

Ya see his name is not found in the hall of fame but he’ll shock

And amaze ya and make ya feel shame

He takes a lime from a lemon

And from a lemon to a lime

He cuts the beat in half the time

And as sure is 3 times 2 is 6

You’ll say Flash is the king of the quick mix

We’re five mc’s and we’re on our own

And we’re the most well known on the microphone

And we throw down hard and we aim to please

With finesse to impress all the young ladies

We got rhymes galore and that’s a fact

And if the satisfaction’s guaranteed to cause a heart attack

We are the best as you can see

So eliminate the possibility

That to be an e-m-c-e-e

Is not a threat to society

Say step by step

Stride by stride

I know the fly young lady would like to ride

In my mercedes, ‘young ladies’

In my mercedes, ‘young ladies’

If my Mercedes breakdown and dull my grill

I will drive up in a new Seville

If my Seville break down, I take it back

I will dull my grill in a new Cadillac

If my Cadillac break down, it’s too much

I will shock your mind in a new Star Stutz

And if a Stutz break down, I make another choice

I will dull my grill in a new Rolls Royce

And if a Royce break down, I’ll be out in the rain

And then forget it, forget it, forget it, forget it, forget it

Huh, take the train

Take the train, take the train

Can’t, won’t, don’t stop rockin’ to the rhythm

Cause I get down, cause I get down, cause I get down

Ladies who don’t know my name

And you fellas who don’t know my game

Yes I’m called the prnce of soul

But others call me the Kid Creole

The mc delight, young ladies bite

When I’m on the mike and I rock the house right

I’m the dedicated prince, heart of solid gold

Rockin to the rhythm while I’m playing the role

A cool calm customer, the master plan

It takes a sucker’s man to try to jump my hand

And the things I do and what I say

Affect a lot of people in the strangest way

Makes them clap their hands and say ‘all right’

Creole to the broad daylight

Mr. Ness, my mellow, what he look like

With ya on the mike

Let’s rock y’all, a let’s rock the house

Because the Furious Five are gonna turn it out

So young ladies, if you think ya heard

You heard the best rap, you heard the best word

Yes, it’s true that we gotta fuss

Because it can’t be the best unless it came from us

There’s five of us and we take no stuff

We coming through the city, we coming through rough

We number one ain’t nothin’ you can do

And if you wanna get down we’ll rock you too

So free-formin y’all, ya don’t stop

Come on, come on and let me see ‘a rock rock

Cowboy, they say you’re from the bronx

So why don’t you rock the beat and add a little spunk

Yes yes, y’all and ya don’t stop

Come on fly girls, I wanna hit the top

I am the c-o-w-b-o-y

Why the man so bad that ya deny

You better watch your woman cause I’ll tell you why

Cause I’m Cowboy, I might give her a try

They call me Keith Keith

The young ladies’ relief

Know as the man of romance to make you dance

Can any of you ladies stand a chance?

I’m Cowboy and I’m shockin the house

Ya say, ya say 1, 2, 1 more is 3

And Melle Mel, come on, whatcha got for me?

To the hip hop, a hip hop, a don’t stop, don’t stop that body rock

Just get off your seat, get ready to clap

Because Melle Mel is starting here to rap

Ever since the time at my very first party

I felt I could make myself somebody

It was something in my heart from the very start

I could see myself at the top of the chart

Rapping on the mic, making cold cold cash

With a jockey spinnin for me called DJ Flash

Signing autographs for the the young and old

Wearing big time silver and solid gold

My name on the radio and in the magazine

My picture on the TV screen

It’s ain’t like that yet, but -huh- you’ll see

I got potential and you will agree

I’m coming up and I got a step above the rest

Cause I’m using the ladder they call success

You say 1-2-3-4-5-6-7

Rap like hell and make it sound like heaven

A 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 come on Rahiem come and get some

Yes yes y’all, ya don’t stop, come on, come on, huh

All you fly girls that don’t know my game

Come up and talk to me and we’ll tell you all the same

When ya wake up in the night in a hell of a dream

You know ya been possessed by the voice of Rahiem

In all the ladies’ dreams

And makin’ more currency than any mc

And if the dream will turn to reality

And Melle Mel’ll be makin’ money

Mr. Ness, make makin’ money

Cowboy , make makin’ money

Creole, makin’ money

Hit it

Take your time and you will agree

That Black Door got good security

So when you walk through the door, just do me a favor

Be sure to be on your best behavior

Young man, what do you wanna do

When the party is through

And a lady wanna go home with you

You search your pocket, ya soon aware

That you don’t have enough for cab fare

So you say to yourself what a mistake you made

Your heart start pumpin’ right on Kool-Aid

When she walks to you and starts to say

‘Call one-double-o’ get down with o.j

And you pave the way….

Young ladies a lot, young ladies galore, young ladies, we do adore

Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five White Lines

[Hook:]

(White Lines) Visions, dreams of passion

(Blowing through my mind) And all the while I think of you

(High price) A very strange reaction

(For us to unwind) The more I see, the more I do

(Something like a phenomenon) Baby!

(Telling your body to come along, but white lines blow away)

(Blow! Rock it! Blow!)

Ticket to ride, white line highway

Tell all your friends, they can go my way

Pay your toll, sell your soul

Pound-for-pound costs more than gold

The longer you stay, the more you pay

My white lines go a long way

Either up your nose or through your vein

With nothing to gain except killing your brain

[Hook]

(Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock!)

Higher, baby

Get higher, baby!

Get higher, baby!

And don’t ever come down! (Freebase!)

Rang dang diggedy dang di-dang

Diggedy dang di-dang diggedy dang di-dang

(Pipeline) pure as the driven snow

(Connected to my mind) and now I’m having fun, baby!

(High price) it’s getting kinda low

(Cause it makes you feel so nice) I need some one-on-one, baby!

(Don’t let it blow your mind away) Baby!

(And go into your little hideaway ‘cause white lines blow away)

(Blow! Rock it! Blow!)

A million magic crystals, painted pure and white

A multi-million dollars almost overnight

Twice as sweet as sugar

Twice as bitter as salt

And if you get hooked, baby

It’s nobody else’s fault, so don’t do it!

[Hook]

(Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock! Freeze! Rock!)

(Ahhh) Higher, baby

(Ahhh) Get higher, baby!

(Ahhh) Get higher, baby!

And don’t ever come down! (Freebase!)

(Don’t you get too high) don’t you get too high baby!

(Turns you on) you really turn me on and on

(Cause you gotta come down) my temperature is risin’

(When the thrill is gone) no, I don’t want you to go

A street kid gets arrested, gonna do some time

He got out three years from now just to commit more crime

A businessman is caught with 24 kilos

He’s out on bail and out of jail

And that’s the way it goes, raah!

(Cane! Sugar! Cane! Sugar! Cane!)

Athletes rejected, governerds corrected

Gangsters, thugs and smugglers are thoroughly respected

The money gets divided

The women get excited

Now I’m broke and it’s no joke

It’s hard as hell to fight it, don’t buy it!

[Hook]

Little Jack Horner sitting on the corner

With no shoes and clothes

This ain’t funny, but he took his money

And sniffed it up his nose

(Hey man, you wanna cop some blow?)

(Sure, what you got, dust, flakes or rocks?)

(I got China White, Mother of Pearl, Ivory Flake, What you need?)

(Well yeah, well let me check it out man, just let me get a freeze)

(Go ahead man, stuff I got should kill ya!)

(Yeah man th-that’s that’s raw, woah..)

Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five It’s A Shame

Yo Flash! This time cut it mellow!

Hey teacher!

-What?

-Talk to me!

-About what?

-Peace!

-There is no peace!

-Why?

-Who wants to know?

-We do!

-Cause men love money!

-Why?

-Greed!

-Why not share?

-I know

-Why?

-Why not?

-Cause to share shows that you care for ev’rybody!

It’s a shame that all people won’t stick together

Don’t they know that deep inside we need each other?

There are places in our world, where kids are starving

Don’t you know they should not starve, cause they’re the future!

-Hey, preacher!

-What?

-Talk to me!

-About what?

-Hope!

-There is no hope!

-Why?

-Who wants to know?

-We do!

-Cause men are greedy!

-Why?

-Money!

-Why not share?

-I know

-Why?

-Why not?

-Cause to share shows that you care for ev’rybody!

It’s a shame that men at war won’t stop the fighting

Don’t you know they should not fight, cause they are dying!

There are places in our world, where bombs are dropping

Even though they know it’s wrong, they’ll never stop it!

It’s a shame. It’s a shame

It’s a shame. It’s a shame

It’s a dirty, dirty world!

They call me the Kid Creole

I’m the C.O.W.B.O.Y. (why)

The man’s so bad that you can’t deny

And when you act the cowboy to play

I’m Cowboy, I never ran away

No other cool brother than Keith Cowboy

Went a eight and a half, 29 ways

A medium search take a look at my face

Till you hip hop the shoobop dobop take a look on your arm [fade]

Grandmaster Flash And The Furious Five New York, New York

[Melle Mel:]

Ah New York New York big city of dreams

And everything in New York ain’t always what it seems

You might get fooled if you come from out of town

But I’m down by law and I know my way around, too much

Ah too many people, too much – a ha hah

Too much, too many people, too much, rrrrrrrah!

A castle in the sky, one mile high

Built to shelter the rich and greedy

Rows of eyes, disguised as windows

Lookin down on the poor and the needy

Miles of people, marchin up the avenue

Doin what they gotta do, just to get by

I’m livin in the land of plenty and many

But I’m damn sure poor and I don’t know why

Too much, ah too many people, too much

Too much, too many people, too much!

[Duke Bootee:]

A man’s on a ledge, says he’s gonna jump

People gather round, said, “He won’t he’s just a chump”

Cause he lost his job, then he got robbed

His mortgage is due and his marriage is through

He says he ain’t gonna pay no child support

Because the bitch left him without a second thought

He got nothin to eat, no shoes on his feet

She even left his clothes, out in the street

He keeps hearin noises when he’s at home

He always hears voices when he’s all alone

His wife took the kids, the car and the crib

In this man’s world, so much for women’s lib

New York New York big city of dreams

But everything in New York ain’t always what it seems

You might get fooled if you come from out of town

But I’m down by law, and I know my way around

Down in the Village, you might think I’m silly

But you can’t tell the women from the men sometimes

They’re sugar and spice and everything nice

But when you get em home ain’t no tellin what you find

Right next door is a little old man

I seen him eatin dog food out of a can

He says, “I got to eat, when I can’t afford meat

I barely can stand, on my own two feet”

I got a bad habit and I just can’t break it

Somethin’s on my mind and I just can’t shake it

I need some time, and I want some space

I gotta get away from the human race

[Melle Mel:]

Too much, ah too many people, too much… a-ha hah

Too much, ah too many people, too much! Rrrrrrrah!

Stand at a skyscraper reachin into heaven

When over in the ghetto I’m livin in hell

Just play ball or be an entertainer

Cause niggas like me can’t read too well

Nobody loves me, nobody cares

I dreamed about a life but I’m livin in a nightmare

Paranoid schitzo, set back, snowbound

Bad news psycho, heart attack, breakdown!

If only I could sleep just ten more minutes

I might find the strength to make another day

If I didn’t have to get up, and do my thing

I would probably sleep my whole life away

I messed up a nice dream, somethin bout ice cream

Whipped cream fruits and a cherry on top

Now I gotta get up and face the world, huh

The pressure is on it ain’t never gonna stop

I sho’ gotta learn to use my mind

I don’t wanna be kissin nobody’s behind

Just standin on line lookin like a jerk

Gotta get off my butt and do a full day’s work

I ran into a pothole, got into a car crash

Shoulda been thinkin and tried to fake whiplash

A crowd gathered round, they’re callin me fat

Who you lookin at wit a face like that?

New York New York big city of dreams

Everything in New York ain’t always what it seems

You might get fooled if you come from out of town

But I’m down by law and I know my way around

On 42nd Street, lookin for some action

Women standin on the corner sellin satisfaction

One young punk just leanin on the fence

Tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen cents

Really is a prankster, tried to be a gangster

Real big wheel when a gun is in his hands

Just did a stick-up, just got picked up

One dead punk, killed by the man

New York New York big city of dreams

And everything in New York ain’t always what it seem

You might get fooled if you come from out of town

But I’m down by law and I know my way around

Too much, too many people, too much… ah ha hah hah

Too much, too many people, too much! HUAHH!

A baby cries and a mother dies

And the tears fall from the doctor’s eyes because

In this room, on this day

The Good Lord has giveth, and taketh away, huh

The gift of life really means a lot

And in the ghetto your life is all you got

So you take to the streets, tryin to exist

In the trash and slime of a world like this

What you watch, on TV

A tells you what life is supposed to be

But when you look outside the only thing you see

Is the poverty stricken, reality, heh

Abandoned places, angry faces

Much hate and hunger throughout the races

You say, “I’m grown and I’m on my own

So why don’t everybody just leave me alone!”

Now you stay at home, talkin on the phone

Doin ninety miles an hour in the fifty mile zone

They never took the time to tell you bout sex

So you had to learn about it in the discotheques

Nine months later, the baby is there

And the nigga that did it said, “I don’t care!”

You don’t have enough money to help feed two

So you have to choose between the baby and you

The sky was cryin, rain and hail

When you put yo’ baby in the garbage pail

Then you kissed the kid and put down the lid

And you tried to forget what you just did, huh

The muffled screams of a dyin baby

Was enough to drive the young mother crazy

So she ran in the rain tryin to ease the pain

Huh huh, and she drove herself insane

New York New York big city of dreams

But everything in New York ain’t always what it seem

You might get fooled if you come from out of town

But I’m down by law and I know my way around

Ah too much, too many people, too much… ah ha hah hah

Too much, too many people, too much! HUHHH!

New York New York big city of dreams

But everything in New York ain’t always what it seems

You might get fooled if you come from out of town

But I’m down by law and I know my way around

Too much, too many people, too much… ha hah hah hah

Too much, too many people, too much
