it’s tricky lyrics – run dmc

[intro]

this speech is my recital, i think it’s very vital
to rock (a rhyme), that’s right (on time)
it’s tricky is the t*tle, here we go…

it’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
it’s tricky…it’s tricky (tricky) tricky (tricky)
it’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
it’s tricky…tr-tr-tr-tricky (tricky) trrrrrrrrrrricky

[verse 1]

i met this little girlie, her hair was kinda curly
went to her house and bust her out, i had to leave real early
these girls are really sleazy, all they just say is please me
or spend some time and rock a rhyme, i said “it’s not that easy”

it’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
it’s tricky…(how is it d?) it’s tricky (tricky) tricky (trrrrrricky)
it’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
it’s tricky…tricky (tricky) tricky

[verse 2]

in new york the people talk and try to make us rhyme
they really (hawk) but we just (walk) because we have no time
and in the city it’s a pity cos we just can’t hide
tinted windows don’t mean nothin’, they know who’s inside

it’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
it’s tricky…(how is it d?) tricky (tricky) tricky (tricky)
it’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
it’s tricky…tricky (tricky) tricky (tricky) huh!

[verse 3]

when i wake up people take up mostly all of my time
i’m not singin’, phone keep ringin’ cos i make up a rhyme
i’m not braggin’, people naggin’ cos they think i’m a star
always tearin’ what i’m wearin’, i think they’re goin’ too far
a girl named carol follows daryll every gig we play
then d dissed her and dismissed her, now she’s jockin’ jay
i ain’t lyin’, girls be cryin’ cos i’m on tv
they even bother my poor father cos he’s down with me

it’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
it’s tricky…(how is it?) tricky (tricky) tricky (tricky)
it’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
it’s tricky…tr-tr-tr-tr-tr-tricky (tr-tr-tr-tricky) tr-tr-tr…

[verse 4]

we are not thugs (we don’t use drugs) but you *ssume (on your own)
they offer c*ke (and lots of dope) but we just leave it alone
it’s like that y’all (y’all), but we don’t quit
you keep on (rock!) shock! cos this is it…
