"Breaking The Rules" as written by Olivia Gray and Willy Viteka....
Black sheep and a renegade
Hot feet in the cool of the shade
The street jungle and the tough childhoods
Examinations done no good
Got crow bars and hot wired cars
Sneak thieves and cheap cigars
No rebellion, not today
I get my kicks in my own way, right OK

Just keep on breaking the rules
C'mon get ready to rule
Just keep on breaking the rules
C'mon get ready to rule

Tough breaks in the neighborhood
A hard case who's up to no good
Living like trash, a society rash
Ready to break and ready to dash
A bad deal and a real rough ride
Ain't doing time on the other side
No rebellion, not today
I get my kicks in my own way, right OK

Just keep on breaking the rules
C'mon get ready to rule
Just keep on breaking the rules
C'mon get ready to rule
Tough breaks

They got the regulation ties, regulation shoes
Those regulation fools with their regulation rules
Just keep on breaking the rules
C'mon get ready to rule
Just keep on breaking the rules
C'mon get ready to rule
Just keep on breaking the rules, breaking the rules
Get ready
You just keep on breaking the rules
C'mon get ready, get ready, get ready
Ready to rule
Take off your ties and your regulation shoes
You're nothing but a bunch of regulation fools, yeah
And your damn regulation rules
I'm gonna do things my own way, everyday, everyday, everyday
In every way, I ain't gonna pay no attention to your rules

    General CommentThis is clearly a metaphor. Yes, literally the lyrics describe breaking rules of society, however the metaphor is well known. "Rule breakers" are those that think outside the box and innovate. Breaking the rules is a generally a positive behavior: think of any recent innovation that the current generation has developed (that wouldn't be possible without disregarded the previous generation's rules).
