Listen people can't you hear the voices that are crying out
There's a hunger burning in the heart of their souls
Maybe now that I got you let me tell you what I'm talking 'bout
Stand up and shout tonight we'll lose control

I been down and mistreated
Now we're standing undefeated

[Chrous:]
I'm the King of the Mountain
I'm the King of the Hill
I'm the King of the Mountain
I'm the King of the Hill

You spend your life working 9 to 5 it's like doing time
Boss man says "Hey boy, you'll never be no good"
With the night there's a magic in the air that makes us come alive
Tonight's the night they can't put you down, no one could

I been down and mistreated
Now we're standing undefeated

[Chorus]

Listen people can't you hear the voices that are crying out.
There's a hunger burning in the heart of their souls.
Maybe now that I got you let me tell you what I'm talking 'bout
Stand up and shout tonight we'll lose control

I been down and mistreated
We won't be cheated
Now we're standing undefeated...

[Chorus]
