  • * also appears on the compilation
  • "80's Underground Rap: Can I Kick It?" by Rhino Records
  • [Kurtis Blow]
  • Huh-huh-huh, UH UH
  • Uh-huh, huh, huh, mm mmm
  • .. mm mmm
  • Yes yes y'all
  • The best y'all, yes yes y'all
  • Huh, huh, huh, huh.. yes y'all
  • If I ruled the world, was king on the throne
  • I'd make peace in every culture, build the homeless a home
  • I'm not runnin, for Congress or the President
  • I'm just here, to tell the world, how my story went
  • You see - first it was a dream, I was livin in Rome
  • And then I moved to London, bought a brand new home
  • And everywhere I went, I drew lots of attention
  • Like a stretch limousine, one of those new inventions
  • It took a few years 'fore the day had come
  • But I was ruler of the WORLD ranked number one
  • So I headed towards Washington to claim the crown
  • Let the whole world know that, the King was in town
  • As I, arrived, the crowd started to cheer
  • and then someone yelled out, "The King is here!"
  • So I headed toward stage, to make a speech
  • about the new style of living I was gonna teach, uh-huh
  • If I ruled the world..
  • Huh-huh, huh-huh uh-huh uh-huh
  • I'd love all the girls.. I love em love em baby!!
  • Black diamonds and pearls.. ooh yeahh yeahh
  • If I ruled the world..
  • People started flowin as they reached for my hand
  • I said, "Thank you for bringin me to the Promised Land
  • but now I must go, say goodbye to everybody
  • Tonight I'll see you all at my Super Dinner Party"
  • And late that night, at my Super Dinner Party
  • I was dancin to the beat and entertainin La-Di-Da-Di
  • The music started endin, it was time for a speech
  • The crowd started sittin as I rose from my feet
  • And this was once a dream; I explained to the crowd
  • but now, I rule the world, and I feel, so very proud
  • Excuse me please, for stoppin this show
  • I just had to thank you all, huh, and me so
  • my first day in office, the King on the throne
  • I spent my first three hours on the telephone
  • You know with newsmen reporters, and votes too
  • I had so many calls, I didn't know what to do
  • You know out that office I continued to work
  • I signed so many papers, my fingers started to hurt
  • Then I shook off the pain, say this ain't no thing
  • Cause there's nothin in the world like bein number one KING!
  • If I ruled the world..
  • Huh huh huh huh, huh-huh huh-huh
  • I'd love all the girls.. I love em love em baby!!
  • Black diamonds and pearls.. ooh yeahh yeahh
  • If I ruled the world.. whoawowaahhhyeahhhhhhhh
  • .. if I ruled the world
  • {AJ Scratch cuts up the track for a bit
  • Now I rule the world and now, I'm on top
  • And I'm rollin with folks that could never be stopped
  • And I'm here to let you know this is where I belong
  • And to you sucker MC's that sing my song
  • And it's a song that's STRONG about right and wrong
  • And I'm rock it to you baby baby all night long
  • And it's a song about love, and happiness
  • in a world of peace, and you know that's fresh
  • Now I'm the KING, and I want you to know
  • that I'm the Master Blaster Rapper who's runnin the show
  • And to all of you rappers in every country
  • you better stop what you're doin, and listen to me
  • Cause we gotta stop war, and use unity
  • to fight crime and hunger and poverty
  • Cause the African baby is dyin overseas
  • while you sucker mission politicians bustin out Z's
  • Huh, twenty million people all unemployed
  • while the rich man try to play Pretty Boy Floyd
  • While the working class just struggles hard
  • Try to make ends meet against all odds
  • While the poor man can't even deal with life
  • You know he tried to escape, and smoked the coke on the pipe
  • And it's time for a CHANGE, to a better way
  • Cause the sun has GOTTA shine through the cloudy day
  • So LISTEN UP world, while I teach this class
  • and take heed to the message or we ain't gonna last
  • Cause I know, the solution, is the contribution
  • of woman and man to just join the revolution
  • that'll take your brain to a higher plane
  • and help you deal in a world that's gone insane
  • with the problems that I know we can stop
  • from the ruler of the world and the man on top
  • But the years went by, and time was up
  • And the ruler of the world had ran out of luck
  • And all the people at the time who said they were my friends
  • didn't know me when my job had come to an end
  • They came up to my face, as happy as can be
  • He was running his mouth like, Muhammad Ali
  • So I shook his hand calmly as I headed to the door
  • On my way to the ghetto to treat once more
  • If I ruled the world..
  • A-huh-huh-huh, a-huh-huh-huh
  • I'd love all the girls.. I love em love em baby!!
  • Black diamonds and pearls.. ooh yeahh yeahh
  • If I ruled the world.. yeahhhhhhhh
  • If I ruled the world.. if I ruled the world
  • I'd love all the girls.. I'd love em love em baby!!
  • Black diamonds and pearls.. ooh yeahh yeahh, oh yeah yeah
  • If I ruled the world.. whoahahayeahhhhhhhh
  • If I ruled the world.. yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah
  • yea yea yea, yea yea yea
  • I'd love all the girls.. you know I'd love em love em baby!!
  • Black diamonds and pearls.. ooh yeahh yeahh, oh yeah yeah
  • If I ruled the world.. yeayeah yeayeah baby babyyyyyyy
  • If I ruled the world.. if I ruled the world..
  • I'd love all the girls.. yes you, you, you and you
  • Black diamons and pearls.. where those diamonds, where those pearls?
  • If I ruled the world..
  • Huh-huh, huh-huh, a-heh-heh-huh-huh
  • If I ruled the world..
  • Heh-heh, heh-heh
  • I'd love all the girls.. I'd love em love em baby..
