  • Song Lyrics:
    Clap your hands everybody
    If you got what it takes
    'Cause I'm Kurtis Blow and I want you to know
    That these are the breaks

    Brakes on a bus, brakes on a car
    Breaks to make you a superstar
    Breaks to win and breaks to lose
    But these here breaks will rock your shoes
    And these are the breaks
    Break it up, break it up, break it up!

    If your woman steps out with another man
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    And she runs off with him to Japan
    And the IRS says they want to chat
    And you can't explain why you claimed your cat
    And Ma Bell sends you a whopping bill
    With eighteen phone calls to Brazil
    And you borrowed money from the mob
    And yesterday, you lost your job
    Well, these are the breaks
    Break it up, break it up, break it up

    Throw your hands up in the sky
    And wave 'em 'round from side to side
    And if you deserve a break tonight
    Somebody say alright!
    (All right) Say ho-oo!
    (Ho-oo!) And you don't stop
    Keep on, somebody scream!
    (Owwwww!) Break down!

    Breaks on a stage, breaks on a screen
    Breaks to make your wallet lean
    Breaks run cold and breaks run hot
    Some folks got 'em and some have not
    But these are the breaks
    Break it up, break it up, break it up!
    Break down!

    To the girl in brown, stop messing around
    (Break it up, break it up)
    To the guy in blue, whatcha gonna do?
    To the girl in green, don't be so mean
    And the guy in red, say what I said
    Break down!

    Brakes on a plane, brakes on a train
    Breaks to make you go insane
    Breaks in love, breaks in war
    But we got the breaks to get you on the floor
    And these are the breaks
    Break it up, break it up, break it up!
    Break down! Yo!

    Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!
    Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!
    Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!
    Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!

    You say, last week you met the perfect guy
    (That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
    And he promised you the stars in the sky
    He said his Cadillac was gold
    But he didn't say it was ten years old
    He took you out to the Red Coach grill
    But he forgot the cash and you paid the bill
    And he told you the story of his life
    But he forgot the part about...his wife! Huh! Huh!
    Well, these are the breaks!
    Break it up, break it up, break it up!
    Break down!
    (I B Emerson)
