No Sleep Til Brooklyn Lyrics

Artist: Beastie Boys
Album: Licensed To Ill

(chorus) No sleep 'til - Brooklyn

Foot on the pedal - never ever false metal
Engine running hotter than a boiling kettle
My job's ain't a job - it's a damn good time
City to city - I'm running my rhymes
On location - touring around the nation
Beastie Boys always on vacation
Itchy trigger finger but a stable turntable
I do what I do best because I'm illing and able
Ain't no faking - your money I'm taking
Going coast to coast - watching all the girlies shaking
While you're at the job working nine to five
The Beastie Boys at the Garden - cold kickin' it live

(bridge) No sleep 'til -

Another place - another train
Another bottle in the brain
Another girl - another fight
Another drive all night
Our manager's crazy - he always smokes dust
He's got his own room at the back of the bus
Tour around the world - you rock around the clock
Plane to hotel - girls on the jock
We're thrashing hotels like it's going out of style
Getting paid along the way cause it's worth your while
Four on the floor - Adrock's out the door
M.C.A.'s in the back because he's skeezin' with a whore
We got a safe in the trunk with money in a stack
With dice in the front and Brooklyn's in the back

(repeat bridge)

(repeat chorus)

Ain't seen the light since we started this band
M.C.A. - get on the mic my man
Born and bred Brooklyn - U.S.A.
They all me Adam Yauch - but I'm M.C.A.
Like a lemon to a lime - a lime to a lemon
I sip the def ale with all the fly women
Got limos, arena, TV shows
Autograph pictures and classy hos
Step off homes - get out of my way
Taxing little girlies form here to L.A.
Waking up but I get to sleep
Cause I'll be rocking this party eight days a week

(repeat chorus)

and they toured with madonna in 1985 during her virgin tour. and they were boo'ed off the stage each time. beastie boys worked at danceteria in nyc in the early 80s where madonna got her break.

It's "another plane - another train"

and it's "waking up before I get to sleep"

I don't care how you spell it, but it is a lyric site so get that right.

by Beastie Boys #1 Fan on 11/14/2012 10:58pm
line: we've got a safe in the trunk with cash in a stack with dice in the front and brooklyns in the back - so KICKASS - R.I.P. MCA your greatly missed by all your fans
by Lethal on 2/19/2013 8:14pm
To all the dumb fucking cunts who come on here to just say "ENJOY THE SONG!", I would like you to educate yourselves on the irony of coming onto a LYRICS SITE, and bitching about how people want the lyrics to be right. Or because some people enjoy finding the little meanings behind lyrics. Don't hate just because we are more educated than you and we decide to show it. If you want to just enjoy the goddamned song, then YOU just go enjoy the goddamned song and leave the rest of us to our business.

Brooklyns in the back- is that a fridge of the NY beer? Did not get that when I was just 13 at a gig- but my mum fn loved the 21ft high hydraulic dick stage prop.
