Lyrics:
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now We're the renegades of this atomic age This atomic age of renegades Renegades of this atomic age This atomic age of renegades Since the Prehistoric ages and the days of ancient Greece Right down through the Middle Ages Planet earth kept going through changes And then the Renaissance came and times continued to change Nothing stayed the same but there were always renegades Like Chief Sitting Bull, Tom Paine Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X They were renegades of their time and age So many 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 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 mission to help the others listen And groove from land to land singin' electronic chants like Zulu nation Revelations Destroy our nations Destroy our nations Now renegades are the people with their own philosophies They change the course of history Everyday people like you and me We're the renegades we're the people With our own philosophies We change the course of history Everyday people like you and me C'mon We're the renegades of funk We're the renegades of funk We're the renegades of funk We're the renegades of funk Poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip-hop Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin' Poppin', sockin', rockin', puttin' a side of hip-hop Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin' Poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip-hop 'Cause we're poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip-hop Poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip-hop 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 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 'Cause every time I 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 to the big sound You had to be a renegade in those days To take a man to the dance floor Say jam sucker (jam) Say jam sucker (jam) Say groove sucker (groove) Say groove sucker (groove) Say dance sucker (dance) Say dance sucker (dance) Now move sucker (move) Now move sucker (move) [x2] We're the renegades of funk
