Afrika Bambaataa – Renegades Of Funk (12" Vocal Version) lyrics

No matter how hard you try
You can't stop this now
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop this now

Renegades of this atomic age
This atomic age for renegades
Renegades of this atomic age
This atomic age for renegades

Prehistoric ages
And the days of ancient Greece
On down through the middle ages
When the earth kept going through changes

There's a business going on
Cars continue to change
Nothing stays the same
There were always renegades

Like Chief Sitting Bull, Tom Payne
Like Martin Luther King, Malcolm X
They were renegades
Yes, the renegades

Of the atomic age
So many renegades
Hand clap, now hand clap
The renegades

From a different solar system
Many many galaxies away
We are the force of another creation
A new musical revelation

And we're on this musical message
To help the others listen
Improve momentum and
Seek the electronic chance

Like astrology
Like technology
Like God's creation
Like Zulu's nation

Like to the nation
Like destroy all nations
Like militants
Like down in sand

Like through changes
Nothing stays the same
Oh, renegades
Ah, yes I know

Now renegades are the people
With their own philosophies
They change the course of history

Everyday people
Like you and me
You know they have
Their secret notions

And time is a endless motion
All people of the moderate ages
Here in this twentieth century

You have to keep up in time
With the moderate time
Have a state of mind and a sense of pride
Oh renegade, yes a renegade

Of this time and age
So many renegades
Who's that, now hand clap
The renegades

We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

We're the renegades of funk
(Yeah, poppin', sockin', rockin')
(With a side of hip-hop)
We're the renegades of funk
(Because where we're goin'
(There ain't no stoppin')

Yeah, poppin', sockin', rockin'
With a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin'
There ain't no stoppin'

Oh yes, we're poppin', sockin' rockin'
With a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin'
There is really no way

Poppin', sockin', rockin'
With a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin'
There ain't no stoppin'

You know we're poppin', sockin', rockin'
With a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin'
There is no stoppin'

Yes we're poppin', sockin', rockin'
With a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin'
There ain't no stoppin'

Poppin', sockin', rockin'
With a side of hip-hop
Poppin', sockin', rockin'
With a side of hip-hop

Oh yeah, yes we're poppin', sockin', rockin'
With a side of hip-hop
Poppin', sockin', rockin'
With a side of hip-hop

We're teachers of the funk
And not of empty popping
We're blessed with the force
And the sight of electronics

With the bass and the treble
The horns and our vocals
You know everytime we pop into the beat
We get fresh

There was a time when our music
Was something called the 'Bay Street beat
People would gather from all around
To get down on the 'Bay sound'

You had to be a renegade those days
To take a man on the dance floor
Like Afrika Bambattaa
And the Soulsonic Force

We're talking about Mr. B, Pow Wow, G L O B E
Was a renegade, yes, a renegade of the atomic age
So many renegades, what's that
It's a hand clap, the renegade

Just jam sucker
(Jam sucker)
Say jam sucker
(Jam sucker)

Say groove, sucker
(Groove sucker)
Say groove, sucker
(Groove sucker)

Say dance, sucker
(Dance sucker)
Say dance, sucker
(Dance sucker)

Now move, sucker
(Move sucker)
Now move, sucker
(Move sucker)

Everybody say, we're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

Shake that thing
That makes me swing
I got some great
He's a renegade of funk

Mr. Biggs, he's a renegade of funk
Bambaataa, he's a renegade of funk
Pow Wow, he's a renegade of funk
And mc Globe, he's a renegade of funk
