It started many years ago, out of the black country
The seed became the embryo, for all on earth to see
Like stealth the word spread mouth to mouth, all corners of the land
And soon the thing began to grow, and get right out of hand

From the concrete jungle
The smoke, the dirt, the grime
Could not contain the hunger
It grew and grew in time, into a

Monster. Monster of rock
They could never bind it
It vowed to reach the top
Monster. Monster of rock
They could never bind it
Impossible to stop

Took the sound across the seas, the people stood in awe
At last the sound had come to them
That they'd been waiting for

And millions roared, and millions cheered
This spectacle on stage
And everyone went crazy as it bellowed out in rage

From the concrete jungle
The smoke, the dirt, the grime
Could not contain the hunger
I grew and grew in time, into a

Monster. Monster of rock
They could never bind it
It vowed to reach the top
Monster. Monster of rock
They could never bind it
Impossible to stop

From the concrete jungle
The smoke, the dirt, the grime
Could not contain the hunger
It grew and grew in time, into a

Monster. Monster of rock
They could never bind it
It vowed to reach the top
Monster. Monster of rock
They could never bind it
Impossible to stop

    Song MeaningIn my opinion Judas Priest here clearly pay tribute to the black Americans who brought from Africa to America -through the blues and rythms- the basic musical structures of "rock and roll" music and of course later of classic rock and heavy metal.《It started many years ago, out of the black country, the seed became the embryo, for all on earth to see》.《From the concrete jungle
    The smoke, the dirt, the grime》.《 Took the sound across the seas, the people stood in awe
