LL Cool J is hard as hell
Battle anybody I don't care who you tell
I excel, they all fail
Gonna crack shells, Double-L must rock the bells

You've been waitin' and debatin' for oh so long
Just starvin' like Marvin for a Cool J Song
If you cried and thought I died, you definitely was wrong
It took a thought, plus I brought Cut Creator along
Thinking of E-Love down with the Cool J Force
Specializin' in the rhymin' for the record of course
I'm a tower full of power with rain and hail
Cut Creator scratch the record with his fingernail
Rock the bells

The king of crowd rockers finally is back
My voice is your choice as the hottest wax
True as a wizard, just a blizzard, I ain't taken no crap
I'm rhymin' and designin' with your girl in my lap
The bass is kickin' always stickin' 'cause you like it that way
You think it's hotter plus it's def 'cause it's by Cool J
Cut Creator on the fader, my right-hand man
We rock the bells so very well 'cause that's the name of this jam
Rock the bells

Some girls will like this jam and some girls won't
'Cause I make a lot of money and your boyfriend don't
LL, go to hell, gonna rock the bells
All you washed up rappers wanna do this well
Rock the bells

Now I'm world-wide known, whether you like it or not
My one man band is Cut Creator a.k.a. Philpot
He'll never skip it, only rip it when he's on the fader
What's my DJ's name, (Cut Creator!)
Now you know the episode who's on the wheels
He'll drive the cross fader like a cut mobile
So precise with a slice that you know he's greater
What's my DJ's name, (Cut Creator!)
What you know, what do you know, Earl roles the weed
I go to the store and get Old Gold
So all you crappy lookin' nappy headed girls get back
'Cause there's a ten to one chance that you might get smacked
Rock the bells

The bells are circulatin' like the blood in your veins
Why are girlies on the tip, (LL's your name)
Cut Creator's (good), Cool J. Is (good-good)
You bring the Woodpecker, I'll bring the wood
The bells are wippin' and rippin' at your body and soul
Why do you like Cool J (it ain't Rock 'N' Roll)
'Cause it ain't the glory days with Bruce Springsteen
I'm not a virgin so I know I'll make Madonna scream
You hated Michael and Prince all the way, ever sense
If their beats were made of meat, then they would have to be mince
Rock the bells

So listen to the rhyme the lines, I rhyme on time
He'll cut the record in a second, make your DJ Look blind
So all you Jheri Curl suckers wearin' high-heel boots
Like ballerinas, what I mean is you're a fruit-loop troop
All you gonna-be, wanna-be, when will you learn
Wanna be like Cool J you gotta wait your turn
Some suckers don't like me, but I'm not concerned
Six G's for twenty minutes is the pay I earn
I'm growin' and glowin' like a forest blaze
Do you like Michael Jackson? (We like Cool J!)
That's right, I'm on the mic with the help of the bells
And no delayin' what I'm sayin' as I'm rockin' you well
Rock the bells

    General CommentThese are not the lyrics to the "Rock the Bells" I know and love as LL's first single. The song begins;

    Been waitin' and debatin' for oh so long
    Just starvin' like Marvin' for a Cool J song

    Maybe these are from "Rock the Bells 2000" or something.

    The one released in 1985 or so had awesome lyrics, particularly good for the then-17 year-old LL:

    'Cuz these ain't the Glory Days of Bruce Springsteen
    I'm not a virgin so I know I'll make Madonna scream
    You hated Michael and Prince all the way ever since
    And if these beats were made of meat then they would have to be minced...
    Rock the Bells!
