Woah
We're young and fresh
You know we don't do that, we impress
Yeah
Yeah
Wooh oooh, yeah (x4)

Hey grandma, say what's that noise
It's a lot of hot girls and a bag of boys
Come meet us, better join us now
Cause the city won't sleep till we shut it down
Woah street life, it's like I ain't got no home
We got speakers, and some cd decks
Now let's go turn some heads

[Bridge]:
And take it to the street
Kicking all of the doors down
Nothin these can't save us now
Cause even grandma want to bounce
So let's go crazy, yeah
(O-o-over now)


[Chorus]:
When the beat snare's drumming away
And the melody's happy to play
Say DJ take it away
Start a sweet riot in the city, yeah, uh huh huh

Sweet sweet riot, uh huh huh, uh huh huh, uh huh huh
Sweet sweet riot, uh huh huh, uh huh huh, uh huh huh
Start a sweet riot in the city, yeah, uh huh huh

Wooh ooh, yeah (x4)

And get stupid and pass it round
Yeah that's what community's all about
(We're all in together now)
Place the bass, and tell mum and dad give me that dubstep face
And go oooh, so don't you bluff there's a little bit of crazy in all of us
And t-t-t-trust me, when we get down
There's a party that will turn the street upside down
I know that you love me
See I know that you love me
Yeah I know that you love me
Ohhh (and I ain't done yet)

[Bridge]:
Kicking all of the doors down
You know I'm a sucker for trouble
So this city will never sleep
Cause we're too crazy
(O-o-over now)
[Chorus]:
When the beat snare's drumming away
And the melody's happy to play
Say DJ take it away
Start a sweet riot in the city
Sweet sweet riot, uh huh huh, uh huh huh, uh huh huh
Sweet sweet riot, uh huh huh, uh huh huh, uh huh huh
Sweet sweet riot, uh huh huh, uh huh huh, uh huh huh
Sweet riot in the city uh huh huh

Let's get a little crazy baby
I'm losing my mind
Always tryna play it safe
Now it's time to fly
Doubting, going, over the edge
Doubting, going, over the edge

So my fellow friends and citizens
In the name of our originators
We rise against the machine
(We rise against the machine)
And take what's rightfully ours
(And take what's rightfully ours)
The moshpit generation, lets go

[Chorus]:
When the beat snare's drumming away
And the melody's happy to play
Say DJ take it away
Start a sweet riot in the city
Sweet sweet riot, uh huh huh, uh huh huh, uh huh huh
