Lyrics to Flying Steps' "Breakin' It Down" - 5 Cents
Posted by: Paul Nichols

21 Nov 2011


The Internet has been pretty successful. But one thing it doesn't have is the real lyrics to the best breakdancing video ever. That's Flying Steps' "Breakin' It Down." It's really quite surprising that these lyrics don't exist in their correct form anywhere. I'm going to attempt it here. Please listen to the video and let me know what I missed. The 4th and 5th lines of the first verse? The last two lines of the second verse? At least this gets us going in the right direction.

 

 



Flying Steps - Breakin' It Down

 

See the rocking nation breakin' it down

Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Rockin' nation break it down

Breakin' it down

Rockin' nation

I'm back on track although it's been quite a while

for me to rock the microphone in B Boys style
See it doesn't really make a difference what you like
'cause I'm about to satisfy you and I'll host tonight

So get down to the band, bang the boogie, the beat

turn up the boom box walking down the street

I'm giving you what you need when I am in your town

now get ready for the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Come on

See the rockin' nation breakin' it down
Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

See the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Yeah

 

Yo

Word up

We're gonna rock you.

Wait

Try this one.

 

Word up

We're gonna rock you.

Wait

Try this one.

 

Lay your ears on the speakers and feel the bass

blow the dust off your sneakers get back in the race

People rockin' never stoppin' hip hoppin' the place

I got this smile on my face it's like I'm back in the day

Old school homies see me recognize my face

say the same hip hop words in mysterious ways

I quit my day time job to make hip hop plays

but making money with the microphone is not the game

Come on

See the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Go, go

See the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Yeah

 

Rockin' nation

 

See the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Go, go

See the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Yeah

See the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Go, go

See the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Here's the rockin' nation breakin' it down

Corrections
 
Perhaps: "So get down to the bass, band the boogie, the beat." It's not either what's posted above or this, but some combination...

And I think this is it:
"I quit my daytime job, today hip hop pays,
but making money with the microphone is not the game." Maybe that last word is case or something else? King? Cake?

Still need help on this line:
"'cause I'm about to satisfy you and I'll host tonight." Those last four words are incorrect.
