The boys and the Dukes are ready to rumble
The word on the street some heads are gonna tumble
Blades gonna flash when streets gang clash
In the avenue tonight

When the lightning strikes
Zip gun Johnny's finger is itchin'
The lid's gonna blow up in hell's kitchen
It's an eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
It's so ruthless when they fight

When the lightning strikes
And it's free for all in the parking lot
And who'll rule the street
