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
We're 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 no 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, Malcom 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

Destroy our nations
Destroy our nations
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

We're poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip hop
'Cause where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
Poppin', sockin', puttin' a side of hip hop
'Cause where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'

Poppin' n' sockin' n' rockin' n' 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 everytime I pop into the beat, we get fresh

C'mon
C'mon

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 those days
To take a man to the dance floor

Say jam sucker, jam
Say jam sucker, jam
Say groove sucker, groove
Now groove sucker, groove

Say dance sucker, dance
Say dance sucker, dance
Now move sucker, move
Now move sucker, move

Say jam sucker, jam
Say jam sucker, jam
Say groove sucker, groove
Now groove sucker, groove

Say dance sucker, dance
Say dance sucker, dance
Now move sucker, move
Now move sucker, move

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
