  • [Chorus 2X: DMC]
    The Cadillac cars we're supposed to drive
    The supersonic jet we're supposed to fly
    Things they advertise we're supposed to buy
    But the truth about life is we never die

    [DMC]
    Up in the morning hit the treadmill
    Read the morning paper, get the head filled
    Eat a little breakfast for the {?} thrill
    My son started illin so I said chill
    A man can't live on bread and water alone
    But by every word proceding out the microphone
    My wife woke up, turned the radio on
    My son said daddy, they're playing your song
    Just another day in the life life
    Coolin with my kids and my wife wife
    I got a little problem, I got to solve
    You see me seekin knowledge as the world revolves
    You might not care, but I despair
    over which color shell-toe Adidas to wear
    But that's alright, hey that's okay
    Cause it's the same little problem that I have every day

    [Chorus]

    [DMC]
    The L-I-E, is {?} again
    And life is a battle, will I ever win?
    And you know what they say, over in L.A.
    That the four-oh-five is the same damn way
    People don't realize we're really alike
    But they like to see things in black and white
    But they don't know, we're all the same
    It's all about your throw and how you play, the game
    People think times won't be so hard
    If they just get down, and pray to God
    But I came here, to keep it real
    You gotta do a whole lot more than just kneel
    Don't hesitate to investigate
    Take time out, to meditate
    As long as I see things goin on
    I'm gonna keep spreadin knowledge with a song, now

    [Chorus]

    [DMC]
    I walk outside to my pickup truck
    I see the five-oh and I say whassup?
    Mr. McDaniels what's goin on?
    Are you workin out cause you're lookin kinda strong
    I try to keep the mental and the physical
    Correct in respect to my spiritual
    I try to keep the message really clear for you
    So listen to the questions that I'm askin you

    [repeat 2X]
    Do you believe, in rock'n'roll?
    Cause if you do it'll save your soul
    It helps you gain when you lose control
    If you believe in rock'n'roll

    [Chorus]

    [DMC]
    Rock rock rock rock rockin on heaven's door
