    There are 8 million stories in the naked city

    8 million stories [x4]

    [verse one: Kurtis blow]

    There are 8 million stories in the naked city
    Some ice cold and told without pity
    About the mean streets and the guetto culture
    The pimps,the pushers,the sharks and vultures
    Things that happen when it reaches dark
    And all the things you hear about Central Park
    You got to be down,you got to have strenght
    If you're gonna survive past 110th
    Well it ain't no thing when blood is spilled
    The emergency ward is capacity filled
    And nothin' ever comes as a big surprise
    And the naked city never closes its eyes
    A new story every day
    Told a thousand different ways
    That's how it is and that's how it goes
    The city with the 8 and six big O's

    New York is a crazy city man.....

    Yo, my home boys Run DMC

    [verse two: Run DMC]

    A young girl seemed to be gaining weight
    Her parents all thought it was the food she ate
    Their attitudes were all la-de-da-de
    But little did they know there's a baby in the body
    She tried to hide it,but they'll soon know
    Because sooner or later that baby's got to show
    Can her daddy just accept it as a fact
    That it wasn't the meals and it wasn't the snack
    Then there's another girl,her name is Vicki
    The girl is fine,but sho'nuff tricky
    Vicki's fine,,but then she's not very kind
    She'll lay you down and then she'll rob you blind
    You wake up in the morning and you're feelin' blue
    Because Vicki is gone and your money is too
    She's more sinister than Peter Lorre
    And this is just two of 8 million stories

    8 million stories [x12]

    [verse three: Kurtis Blow]

    Fresh kid and the stories complete
    Born on a dim lit ghetto street
    Father unknown,mother astray
    He learned about life the real hard way
    Wearin' pretty things for all the ladies to see
    Funky fresh diamonds and gold jewelry
    Spent all his time just counting his bank
    Because he's a fly muh-ha-ha,now fill in the blank
    Because he's a fresh kid and his money's long
    Been the subject of a ghetto song
    Poor kids admire,ladies desire
    They say water can't put out this fire
    Because he's a fresh kid,yeah he's alright
    Grew up with the pushers and the pimps of the night
    And you could measure or even treasure
    The thought that cocaine became his pleasure
    Puruvian rock never cut with speed
    And he gets skied untill his nose would bleed
    And that was just one weakness,must admit
    That when he took a hit he could never quit
    Because he's one slick pusher livin' day by day
    When the crazy thing happened along the way
    You know he started to base at a hell a pace
    And now it's a disgrace,he's got the pipe in his face
    For twenty-four seven a terrible Jones
    Didn't take care of business,didn't answer the phone
    He stayed home alone all in the twilight zone
    Just bittin' on a pipe like a dog on a bone
    Turnin' blue in the face,by holdin' his breath
    With the white cloud bullshit stuck in his chest
    But then he tried to stop,but it never worked
    And then the ladies started calling him a freebase jerk
    Just to break it all down,you know he's not very slick
    Because he spent all his money and he spent it real quick
    He lost his car,his house,his friends and his wife
    And basing cocaine made him lose his wife
    Because he bought some on credit and couldn't pay
    And then the pusher looked for him and blew him away
    In a blaze of glory in his own territory
    8 million stories sad but all real stories

    8 million stories [x12]
