RUN DMC lyrics - King Of Rock

King Of Rock

Original and similar lyrics
I'm the king of rock, there is none higher Sucker MC's should call me sire To burn my kingdom, you must use fire I won't stop rockin' till I retire Now we rock the party and come correct Our cuts are on time and rhymes connect Got the right to vote and will elect And other rappers can't stand us, but give us respect They called us and said we're gettin iller There's no one chiller It's not Michael Jackson and this is not Thriller As one def rapper, I know I can hang I'm Run from Run-DMC, like Kool from Kool and the Gang Roll to the rock, rock to the roll DMC stands for devestating mic control You can't touch me with a ten foot pole And I even made the devil sell me his soul Now we crash through walls, cut through floors Bust through ceilings and knock down doors And when we're on the tape, we're fresh out the box You can hear our sound for blocks and blocks For every living person we're a purple treat It's me and DMC, Jay where's the beat Now we're the baddest of the bad, the coolest of the cool I'm DMC, I rock and roll. I'm DJ Run, I rock and rule It's not a Trick or Treat and it's not a April Fool It's all brand new, never ever old school You got the music in your body and you can't comprehend When your mind won't wiggle and your knees will bend Music ain't nothin but a people's jam It's DJ Run-DMC rockin without a band Now I walked on ice and never fell I spent my time in a plush hotel I stood on many stages, held many mics Take airplane flights, at huge heights So all you sucker MC's, you gotta say please Cause when he jumps high, I'm pulling down weeds Got a song so strong, it's knocking down trees Is it hard to believe it's Run-DMC I am from, around the way And Run goes to school, every day And Jay plays the records he has to play And we get down with no delay, HEY! I rock the party with the words I speak And Run says the rhymes that are unique And Jay cuts the records every day of the week And we are the crew that can never be beat So don't try to diss me, try to be my friend Cause if you do, you'll get yours in the end The rhymes we say, shall set a trend Because a devestating rap is what we send Every jam we play, we break two needles There's three of us but we're not the Beatles My name is Darryl, you can call him D You can call me Darryl Mack, or you can call him DMC People always ask, 'DMC, what does it mean' D's for never dirty, MC for mostly clean Like we said before, we rock hardcore I'm DJ Run, I can scratch. I'm DMC, I can draw And now we got the knack, to attract Our rhyme's an aphrodisiac We'll reign on your brain and rock your knot When it comes to rock, give it all we got To be MC's, we got what it takes Let the poppers pop and the breakers break We're cool cool cats, it's like that That's the way it is, so stay the hell back We're causin hard times, for sucker MC's Cause they don't make no songs like these PERIOD!

Strictly Business

EPMD "Strictly Business"
Try to answer to the master on the MC rap artists No joke on the lyric -it's hard to be modest I knew I was the man with the master plan To make you wiggle and jiggle like gelatin Just think while I sing and to the brain structure Don't sleep on the E -- 'ya see, something might rupture I don't take time for me to blow your mind It takes a second to wreck it because you're dumb and blind So just lounge . . . 'Cause you're a MC clown Or join the circus . . . EPMD's in town Total chaos -- no mass confusion Rhymes so hypnotizing known to cause an illusion Like a magician who draws a rabbit out a hat, son I'm drawin' more, like a 44-Magnum MC's please stop, look, and listen and try to imagine it's travellin' the speed of lighjt, but everything' motion it's frightening Plus the thought of you alone You now enter the dimension called the Twilight Zone You're terrified . . . plus you can't bear the thought You and I one-on-one in the land of the lost You start to shiver . . . then you scream, my friend You wake up, Muttley, because you're dreamin' again Next time I'm on the scene . . . do not try to diss us Keep your mouth suckered up, because I'm Strictly Business This is the rap season . . . when the E starts pleasin' Girls around the world no need to be skeezin' When I roll I stroll, Cool always pack a 2 Just in case . . . a brother acts a fool I've got the energy to put the girlz in a frenzy Put a shock when I rock even though I'm not stingy Make sure I don't bore when I'm on the dance floor . . . Get busy, boy . . . like you never saw before Rhyme flow . . . good to go . . . After the show . . . I'll pull your hoe, boy Do you sniff blow?? -- Hell no Got my whole life ahead of me, no time to be sniffin' And if my parents find out, then they start riffin' So I stay, A-OK 'Cause I'm the E . . . the R-I-C-K MC's look me in the face and their eyes get weak Pulse rate descends . . . heart rate increases It's like beam me up, scotty, I control your body I'm as deadly as AIDS when it's time to rock a party With all due respect, when I say mike check I let a sucker slide once . . . then I break his neck So when I say jump, you'll reply How high? Because I'm takin' no prisoners, so don't play hero and die You're just a soldier . . . and I'm a Green Beret I do not think twice about the MCs I slay So if you want to battle, i highly recommend this: Bring your dog, mom, and dad . . . because I'm Strictly Business Yo, yo, you're still pickin' on that four-leaf clover? Bring in the sandman, sucker . . . because it's over My name is Eric Sermon and I'm back again I see the head's still turnin' of my so-called friends They smile in my face -- behind my back they talk trash, Mad and stuff - because they don't have cash Like the E-Double . . . or the Pee-MD He drives a Corvette, I drive a semi-iroc Suzuki I'm the locksmith . . . with the key to fame Never high on myself, always stay the same Play a lot because I'm hot and like a horse I trot Around the track and back, fatigued?? No, I'm not I'm the mellow, the fellow, the one that likes to say hello To a fly girl that is good to go With the slow tempo and the off-beat rhyme flow 'Cause when I am in action, there is no time for maxin' or relaxin Just reactin' and subtractin' On a sucker MC who's mouth keeps on yappin' and flappin' I lose my cool, then I'll be start slappin' and smackin' You on a roll, then I'll be start jackin' and cappin' No time to lounge, I'm packin' and strappin' At my point attack I soar at you like an eagle, I'm the sheriff, and bitin' is illegal So next time in town, I highly recommend this, You gots to chill, because I'm Strictly Business

Long Live Rock N Roll

Steel Dragon
At the end of a dream If you know where I mean When the mist just starts to clear In a similar way At the end of today I could feel the sound of writing on the wall It cries for you It's the least that you can do Like a spiral on the wind I can hear it screaming in my mind Long live rock and roll Long live rock n roll Long live rock and roll In a different time When the words didn't rhyme You could never quite be sure Then on with the change It was simple but strange And you knew the feeling seemed to say it all It cries for you It's the least that you can do Like a spiral on the wind I can hear it screaming in my mind Long live rock and roll Long live rock n roll Long live rock and roll Getting as good as you give Sleep with the devil and then you must pay Sleep with the devil And the devil will take you away Look away from the sea I can take you anywhere Spend a vision with me A chase with the wind Move closer to me I can make you anyone I think you're ready to see The gates of babylon The power fo what has been before Rises to trap you within A magic carpet ride A genie maybe more A city of heavenly sin Sleep with the devil The devil will take you away Black gates of babylon The devil is me And I'm holding the key to the gates of sweet hell Babylon

The Marshall Plan

BLUE OYSTER CULT "Cultösaurus Erectus"
In a dark horse town, in the middle of the west Where Friday takes so long to arrive Johnny wakes up dreaming turns on the radio The he jumps up plays his guitar in the mirror Starts his day with a rock and roll pose Tonight's the night that Susie and he Are going to a rock and roll show Tonight! I'm gonna see some rock and roll! Yeah, my favorite group is playing! Tonight! I'm gonna see some rock and roll! Well it's showtime and he's caught up in the crowd He hates the crush but he loves the music loud He reaches out and Susie's disappeared, Now Johnny's standing on a corner after the show Looking for his Susie dear But there goes his Susie - in the band's limousine! Yeah, well that's the way it goes at these rock and roll shows That's the way it goes - it's rock and roll That's the way it goes - it's rock and roll Now Susie's gone, and Johnny hears the thunder As he rolls another number and he counts He counts the times he's felt himself to be the hero 'Cause ever since he was a boy He's heard about adventure As he looks into the mirror now he knows He must be the star and play guitar like thunder Find Susie at his rock and roll show Boy, if I only had a good guitar and a big amp Boy, it wouldn't be somebody else taking my girl away...tell ya I know what I should do...I'll put an ad in the paper Get a few other guys who want to play as much as I do Tell ya, I ain't playin' no surf music I'm gonna play some heavy music I'm gonna play bad I'm gonna play loud I know just what I want it to sound like It's gonna sound like...

I've Been Everywhere

JOHNNY CASH "Unchained"
I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road, When along came a semi with a high an' canvas-covered load. "If you're goin' to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride." And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside. He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand. And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every road in this here land!" [Chorus:] I've been everywhere, man. I've been everywhere, man. Crossed the desert's bare, man. I've breathed the mountain air, man. Of travel I've had my share, man. I've been everywhere. I've been to: Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota, Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma, Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma, Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo, Tocapillo, Baranquilla, and Perdilla, I'm a killer.
