    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

    Renegades of this atomic age
    This atomic age for renegades
    Renegades of this atomic age
    This atomic age for renegades

    Prehistoric ages and the days of ancient Greece
    On down through the Middle Ages
    When the earth kept going through changes
    There's a business going on, cars continue to change
    Nothing stays the same, there were always renegades
    Like Chief Sitting Bull, Tom Payne
    Like Martin Luther King, Malcom X
    They were renegades of their time and age
    So many renegades

    Hand clap, hand clap, the renegades

    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 message to help the others listen
    Improve momentum and seek the electonic chance
    Like astrology
    Like technology
    Like God's Creation
    Like the Zulu station
    Like to the nation
    Like destroy all nations
    Like militants
    Like down in sand
    Like through changes ,nothing stays the same
    Oh renegades

    Now renegades are people with their own philosophy
    They change the course of history
    Everyday people like you and me
    You know they have their secret notions
    And time is endless motion
    All people of the moderate ages here in this twentieth century
    You have to keep up in time with the moderate time
    A state of mind and a sense of pride
    A renegade, yes a renegade
    Of this time and age
    So many renegades
    Who's that
    Now hand clap
    The 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
    Poppin', sockin', rockin' with a side of hip-hop
    Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
    You know we're poppin', sockin', with a side of hip-hop
    Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
    Poppin', sockin', rockin' with a side of hip-hop
    Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
    (Repeat)

    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
    You know everytime we 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 on the Bay sound
    You had to be a renegade those days
    To take a man on the dance floor
    Like Afrika Bambattaa and the Soulsonic Force
    We're talking about Mr. B, Pow Wow, G-L-O-B-E
    Was a renegade, yes, a renegade of the atomic age
    So many renegades
    What's that
    It's a hand clap
    The renegade

    Just jam sucker
    Say jam sucker
    Say groove, sucker
    Say groove, sucker
    Say dance, sucker
    Say dance, sucker
    Now move, sucker
    Now move, sucker

    Everybody say
    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

    Shake that thing
    That makes me swing
    I got some great
    He's a renegade of funk
    Mr. Biggs
    He's a renegade of funk
    Bambaataa
    He's a renegade of funk
    Pow Wow
    He's a renegade of funk
    And MC Globe
