"Renegades Of Funk" as written by Ellis Williams, John B Miller, Robert Durrell Allen, John Robie, Arthur Henry Baker and Afrika Bambaataa....
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 time and age
This is the time and age of renegades
Renegades of this time and age
This is the time and 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
The mighty 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 all nations
Destroy all nations
Destroy all nations
Destroy all nations
Destroy all nations
Destroy all 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
Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
Poppin', sockin', 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 Big 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 sucker)
Say jam sucker (jam sucker)
Say move sucker (move sucker)
Say groove sucker (move sucker)
Say dance sucker (dance sucker)
Say dance sucker (dance sucker)
Now move sucker (move sucker)
Now move sucker (move sucker)

Say jam sucker (jam sucker)
Say jam sucker (jam sucker)
Say move sucker (move sucker)
Say groove sucker (move sucker)
Say dance sucker (dance sucker)
Say dance sucker (dance sucker)
Now move sucker (move sucker)
Now move sucker (move sucker)

A weh weh weh weh woer
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

A weh weh weh weh woer
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

A weh weh weh weh woer
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

A weh weh weh weh woer
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

    General CommentHello! the meaning is in the song

    "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"

    General CommentRage didn't even write this song. It was originally done by Afrika Bambaataa in 1986. All the songs on the Renegades CD were covers.

    General CommentSometimes I like to pretend they never made this CD. It's no wonder they broke up after releasing it. They are still the best band ever, but what were they thinking with this CD?
