  • featuring Run D.M.C.
  • (intro)
  • There are 8 million stories in the ***** city
  • 8 million stories (x4)
  • (verse one Kurtis blow)
  • There are 8 million stories in the ***** city
  • Some ice cold and told without pity
  • About the mean streets and the guetto culture
  • The pimps the pushers the sharks and vultures
  • Things that happen when it reaches dark
  • And all the things you hear about Central Park
  • You got to be down,you got to have strenght
  • If you're gonna survive past 110th
  • Well it ain't no thing when blood is spilled
  • The emergency ward is capacity filled
  • And nothin' ever comes as a big surprise
  • And the ***** city never closes its eyes
  • A new story every day
  • Told a thousand different ways
  • That's how it is and that's how it goes
  • The city with the 8 and six big O's
  • New York is a crazy city man.....
  • Yo, my home boys Run DMC
  • (verse two Run DMC)
  • A young girl seemed to be gaining weight
  • Her parents all thought it was the food she ate
  • Their attitudes were all la-de-da-de
  • But little did they know there's a baby in the body
  • She tried to hide it,but they'll soon know
  • Because sooner or later that baby's got to show
  • Can her daddy just accept it as a fact
  • That it wasn't the meals and it wasn't the snack
  • Then there's another girl,her name is Vicki
  • The girl is fine,but sho'nuff tricky
  • Vicki's fine,,but then she's not very kind
  • She'll lay you down and then she'll rob you blind
  • You wake up in the morning and you're feelin' blue
  • Because Vicki is gone and your money is too
  • She's more sinister than Peter Lorre
  • And this is just two of 8 million stories
  • 8 million stories (x12)
  • (verse three Kurtis Blow)
  • Fresh kid and the stories complete
  • Born on a dim lit ghetto street
  • Father unknown,mother astray
  • He learned about life the real hard way
  • Wearin' pretty things for all the ladies to see
  • Funky fresh diamonds and gold jewelry
  • Spent all his time just counting his bank
  • Because he's a fly muh-ha-ha,now fill in the blank
  • Because he's a fresh kid and his money's long
  • Been the subject of a ghetto song
  • Poor kids admire,ladies desire
  • They say water can't put out this fire
  • Because he's a fresh kid,yeah he's alright
  • Grew up with the pushers and the pimps of the night
  • And you could measure or even treasure
  • The thought that cocaine became his pleasure
  • Puruvian rock never cut with speed
  • And he gets skied untill his nose would bleed
  • And that was just one weakness,must admit
  • That when he took a hit he could never quit
  • Because he's one slick pusher livin' day by day
  • When the crazy thing happened along the way
  • You know he started to base at a hell a pace
  • And now it's a disgrace,he's got the pipe in his face
  • For twenty-four seven a terrible Jones
  • Didn't take care of business,didn't answer the phone
  • He stayed home alone all in the twilight zone
  • Just bittin' on a pipe like a dog on a bone
  • Turnin' blue in the face,by holdin' his breath
  • With the white cloud bullshit stuck in his chest
  • But then he tried to stop,but it never worked
  • And then the ladies started calling him a freebase jerk
  • Just to break it all down,you know he's not very slick
  • Because he spent all his money and he spent it real quick
  • He lost his car,his house,his friends and his wife
  • And basing cocaine made him lose his wife
  • Because he bought some on credit and couldn't pay
  • And then the pusher looked for him and blew him away
  • In a blaze of glory in his own territory
  • 8 million stories sad but all real stories
  • 8 million stories (x12
