[Intro]
Ebm7
 
[Verse 1]
Ebm7
Starvation is the creation of the devil, a rebel
Ebm7
I'm bringin' food to the people like a widow
Ebm7
Bringin' flowers to a grave in the middle
Ebm7
Of the city isolation is a riddle
Ebm7
To be surrounded by a million other people
Ebm7
But to feel alone like a tree in a desert
Ebm7
Dried up like the skin of a lizard
Ebm7
But full of color like the spots of a leopard
Ebm7
Drum and bass pull me in like a shepherd
Ebm7
Scratch my itch like a needle on a record
Ebm7
Full of life like a man gone to Mecca
Ebm7
Sky high like an eagle up soaring
Ebm7
I speak low but I'm like a lion roaring
Ebm7
Baritone like a Robeson recordin'
Ebm7
I'm givin' thanks for bein' human every morning
 
[Chorus]
            Gb
Because the streets are alive with the sound of
F7
Boom Bap Can I hear it once again
Bbm7
Boom Bap tell your neighbor tell a friend
     Abm7                   Dbm7
Every box gotta right to be boomin'
            Gb
Because the streets are alive with the sound of
F7
Boom Bap Can I hear it once again
Bbm7
Boom Bap tell your neighbor tell a friend
       Abm7                    Dbm7
Every flower got a right to be boomin'
 
[Verse 2]
Ebm7
Be resistant
Ebm7
The negativity we keep it at a distance
Ebm7
Call for backup and I'll give you some assistance
Ebm7
Like a lifesaver deep in the ocean
Ebm7
Stay afloat here upon the funky motion
Ebm7
Rock and roll upon the waves of the season
Ebm7
Hold your breath and your underwater breathin'
Ebm7
To be rhymin' without a real reason
Ebm7
Is to claim but not to practice a religion
Ebm7
If television is the drug of the nation
Ebm7
Satellite is immaculate reception
Ebm7
Beaming in they can look and they can listen
Ebm7
So you see don't believe in the system
Ebm7
To legalize you or give you your freedom
Ebm7
You want rights ask em', they'll read em'
Ebm7
But every flower got a right to be bloomin'
Ebm7
Stay human
 
[Chorus]
            Gb
Because the streets are alive with the sound of
F7
Boom Bap Can I hear it once again
Bbm7
Boom Bap tell your neighbor tell a friend
     Abm7                   Dbm7
Every box gotta right to be boomin'
            Gb
Because the streets are alive with the sound of
F7
Boom Bap Can I hear it once again
Bbm7
Boom Bap tell your neighbor tell a friend
       Abm7                    Dbm7
Every flower got a right to be boomin'
Cm7
All the freaky people make the beauty of the world
Ebm7
All the freaky people make the beauty of the world
Abmaj7
All the freaky people make the beauty of the world
G7
All the freaky people make the beauty of the world
       Cm7
Because All the freaky people make the beauty of the world
Bbm7     Ebm7
Ahh ha
Abmaj7
All the freaky people make the beauty of the world
Ab       Db7
Stay Human
 
[Verse 3]
Ebm7
You see Y2K ya know is a moment
Ebm7
In time we find that we can open
Ebm7
Up a heart that's locked or been broken
Ebm7
By the pain of words not spoken
Ebm7
Or shot by guns a still smokin'
Ebm7
Cartwrights out on the Ponderosa
Ebm7
Or drive by bang in Testarossa
Ebm7
We need to heed the words of Dalai Lama
Ebm7
Or at least the words of yo mama
Ebm7
Take a mental trip to the Bahamas
Ebm7
Steam your body in a stereo sauna, sauna, comma
 
[Chorus]
            Gb
Because the streets are alive with the sound of
F7
Boom Bap Can I hear it once again
Bbm7
Boom Bap tell your neighbor tell a friend
     Abm7                   Dbm7
Every box gotta right to be boomin'
            Gb
Because the streets are alive with the sound of
F7
Boom Bap Can I hear it once again
Bbm7
Boom Bap tell your neighbor tell a friend
       Abm7                    Dbm7
Every flower got a right to be boomin'
            Gb
Because the streets are alive with the sound of
F7
Boom Bap Can I hear it once again
Bbm7
Boom Bap tell your neighbor tell a friend
     Abm7                   Dbm7
