Song Lyrics

Kings from Queens from Queens come Kings

We`re raisin` hell like a class when the lunchbell rings

The king will be praised and hell will be raised

S s s s*ckers try to faze `im but D won`t be fazed.

So what`s your name DMC the king is me

Your Highness or His Majesty

Now you can debate ci ci ci concentrate

But you can`t imitate DMC the Great!

Dissin' all devils causing havoc in hell

At a very high level bass and treble shall yell

Heard in the heaven of a sound supreme,

So clear to the ear it is sometimes seen!

So loud like a cloud with thunder and lightning

So proud to the crowd it is somewhat frightening

No calm in a storm like a beast unleashed

There's no stoppin' cause the rockin' cannot cease!


You see it's harder than hard, not one bit soft

Courageous and contageous so you better break North

Not a cold on a roll did you hear me cough?

Just listen while I`m dissing cause you`re p*ssin` me off

Cold betting its spreading all across your face

You can`t take when I break and if that`s the case

I go on and on and kick the bass

So back up off the cup while I take my taste...

It`s highly appraised when the hell is raised

So demanding and commanding that you all stand dazed

The unbelieving receiving prophecies so true

I cut the head off the Devil and I throw it at you.

My mighty mic control already brought his soul

The rock King is so bold when he rocks and roll

A black hat is my crown, symbolizing the sound,

signifying, we won`t play around.


Rhymin` and climbin` beat makin` every day

No synthesizer sound so silence when I say

I am great get it straight cause that`s my fate

My name is Run I`m number 1

That`s how I rate

He`s in the place with the bass and styl`n grace

His name is J he`s here to play and win this race

He`s off the wall on the ball his name is D

Kind of tall yes y`all he`s down with me

From the mountain valley to the deep blue sea

The word is heard as told by D

I don't sing, I bring much delight

Like a star shining bright in the darkest night

If you are cold I`ll bring you heat

Like I brought the world my funky beat

Mysterious so serious I ain`t no joke

Fire from the depths of hell and you can smell the smoke.

Kickin` and tickin` while you`re havin` a ball

Like chicken finger lickin` I`ll be flick`n you all

So do the bird have you heard did they give you a call

Just me and DMC cold shakin` the walls

There`s no fearin` when hearin` sound of this kind,

across the land every man is going out of his mind.

On the face of the earth spreadin` like disease

contaminating, infiltrating like a horde of bees!

Lord of Lyrics, Duke of Discussion,

Ruler of rock, the King of Col` Crushing.

Ruler of people, controller of crowds

Lingering lyrics long lasting and loud

Left y`all ah to the left y`all

because I rock upon the mic real def y`all

And to the right y`all ah to the right y`all

because I rock upon the mic all night y`all

You see I want respect if I`m correct

They`re all like a ball that I have checked

And the shots they take have no effect

Some punk tried to dunk but he broke his neck

Cause I rock harder and I get farther

You want to battle D hey please don`t bother

To waste your time messin with my rhyme,

The only kick you`ll get out of it is in your behind!
