Lightning Strikes
( R. Supa )



The boys in the Dukes are ready to rumble
The word on the street some heads are gonna tumble
Blades gonna flash when the street gangs clash
On this Avenue at night

When the lightning strikes

Zip gun Johnny's finger is itchin'
Oh the lid's gonna blow up in Hell's Kitchen
It's an eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
They're so ruthless when they fight

When the lightning strikes... Ooooo

And it's a free for all in the parking lot
Tell me who will rule the street
And the night explodes
When the cops bring down the heat

And the chains they crash like thunder
While the weak ones all retreat
Gotta draw first blood
Or they'll read'chor funeral rights

When the lightning strikes

Uum... it's dog eat dog when you're meetin' your rival
In the combat zone it's a means of survival
Don't get last licks on a suicide blitz
On a cloak and dagger night

When the lightning strikes

Ooo... it's a free for all in the parking lot
Over who'll rule the street
And the night explodes
When the cops bring down the heat

And the chains they crash like a thunder
While the weak ones all retreat
Gotta draw first blood
Or they'll read your funeral rights

Oooo ooo...

When the lightning strikes
When the lightning strikes
When the lightning strikes
Can'tcha hear the thunder
When the lightning strikes
Can'tcha hear the thunder
When the lightning strikes
Cant'cha cant'cha cant'cha hear the thunder
When the lightning strikes
Cant'cha cant'cha cant'cha hear the thunder
When the lightning strikes
Cant'cha cant'cha cant'cha hear the thunder
When the lightning strikes
Cant'cha cant'cha cant'cha hear the thunder
When the lightning strikes

SO much confusion about the first line but...
I recently contacted Richie Supa on facebook...
yes, the very same Richie Supa who wrote the song
for the boyz... here's his reply...

"Hey Tommy... this is the first line to
Lightning Strikes. 'The boys in the Dukes are
ready to rumble.' That's official coming from me!
Best, Richie"

Too fuckin' cool of him to reply right!!
Thanx Richie from ALL of us... for clearing that up.
