Soundsystem Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

The sound of the weapon called a microphone
Bring the revolution on
Broadcasting till the early morn' and
Pirate radio rockin' it on

Revolution on the dance floor
Tell me what you're fightin' for
Because this DJ gonna keep you alive
Forget about your troubles and your 9 to 5

With the rhythm of the funk
The pump the bump, people have you arrive
From the place you left, trying to forget
All the things you sweat

The jobs, the bills, the phone, the spills
Somebody hand you a hand full o' pills
So you hold em up, pop 'em down

Your head's like record going gonk a gonk
The beat keeps bumping pound for pound
And the whole wide world try to beat you down

But soundsystem, here's a warnin'
Soundsystem turn it on
And soundsystem microphone
And Babylon system soon come down

Soundsystem, here's a warnin'
Soundsystem turn it on
And soundsystem microphone
And this system gonna rock this town

Drug dealers teachers preachers
Are all believers, stock brokers
Law inforcers, late night cokers
Arms dealers, man stealers

Big wheelers, three piece stealers
Also politicians
Ha, ha, everybody's on a mission
Choose your poison, girls, boys
All make your choice

And call the doctor
He ain't never on a vacation
Gonna send medication knows
You jonesion' disco addiction

Mainline, bass line
Show me what your working with
Show me what your workin' with

Soundsystem, here's a warnin'
Soundsystem turn it on
And soundsystem microphone
And Babylon system soon come down

All night long from the day you're born
All night till the early morning
All night from your born
All night till the day you're gone

All night from the day you're born
All night to the early morning
All night from the day you're born
This system gonna rock this town

Bedroom putting on a uniform
Dialing the numbers on a xylophone
Starin' at the mirror, watching you transformin'

Making sure they all know you alone
Rollin' up a twenty, gonna blow the horn
Late night ticket for the unicorn
Everybody looking for the same old porno

Could a DJ save or soul now?
Show me what your working with
Show me what your working with

Soundsystem, here's a warnin'
Soundsystem turn it on
And soundsystem microphone
And Babylon system soon come down
