The boys and the Dukes are ready to rumble
Blades gonna flash when streets gang clash

Zip gun Johnny's finger is itchin'
It's an eye for an eye
It's so ruthless when they fight
When the lightning strikes
And who'll rule the street
When the cops bring down the heat
And the chains they crash like thunder
Gotta draw first blood

It's dog eat dog when you meet your rival
Gonna get last licks on a suicide blitz
When the lightning strikes
And it's free for all in the parking lot
And the night explodes

While the weak ones all retreat
Or they'll read your funeral rights
Oh, oh
When the lightning strikes
Lightning and thunder
