Lyrics King of Rock

I'm the king of rock
There is none higher
Sucker MCs 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
But give us respect
They called us and
We're gettin' iller
There's no
One chiller
It's not
Jackson and this is not Thriller 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
Devastating 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
Ceilings, 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
It's me and DMC
We're a verbal treat
Jay where's the beat
Jay where's the beat
Now we're the baddest of the bad
I'm DJ Run, I rock and rule
The coolest of the cool
I'm DMC, I rock and roll
It's not a Trick or Treat and it's not a April Fool
And it's not a April Fool
It's all brand new
Never old school
Ever old school
You got the music
In your body
Comprehend and you can't
Mind won't wiggle
When your mind and your knees will bend
Music ain't nothin' but a people's jam
It's DJ Run
Rockin' without a band
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
I'm pullin' down ree's
'Cos when he jumps high
Got a song so strong it's knockin' down trees
Is it hard to believe it's
Run MC
I am from around the way
And Run goes to school every day
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
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
Be my friend 'cos if you do you'll get yours in the end
You'll get yours in the end
The rhymes we say
Because a devastating rap
Shall set a trend
Is what we send 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
D's for never dirty
DMC what does it mean
MC for mostly clean
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
Our rhyme's an aphrodisiac
We'll reign on your brain
We'll reign on your brain and rock your knot
Give it all we got
When it comes to rock
To be MC's
We got what it takes
Let the poppers pop
Let the poppers pop and the breakers break and the breakers break
We're cool cool cats
We're cool cool cats
It's like that
That's the way it is
That's the way it is
So stay the hell back
We're causin' hard times
We're causin' hard times for sucker MC's for sucker MC's
'Cos they don't make no songs like these
