"The Bridge (Album Version)"


You love to hear the story, again and again
Of how it all got started way back when
The monument is right in your face
Sit and listen for a while to the name of the place

"The Bridge"
"Queensbridge"

Hip hop was set out in the dark
They used to do it out in the park
Every place they said his name it rang an alarm
Otherwise known as Mean Teen Tom
A brother who's known for his rap
Jabby Jack, Larry Lah, third least not last
A cool brother by the name of Gas
Face Brothers made you get loose
They was down with the brother called Cousin Bruce
They used to jam in the center
You had to pay so you could enter
Go to the door, get frisked
Just in order to get in
And if you wasn't from this town
Then you couldn't fight and win
But everytime they had a jam
They couldn't get no peace
So that's why the jams out there
In the parks, they had to cease
Cause you was in

"The Bridge"
"Queensbridge"

Dimples D, the girl, she was great
Her and Marley Marl went and cut a plate
They used to rock it out in the place
And the title of it was 'Sucker DJ's'
And then he strolled along one day
And then he walked into a girl named Shante
Third in line, you know it's me
MC Shan, ha ha, in the place to be
MC Man, he made them beg
He is the man who is known as Craig
The newest member out to get loose
Now he is down with us and he got the Juice
This is the place where stars are born
And we are the only ones that can't be worn
Out by any place, any part of the world
And while I'm out on tour keep your hand off my girl
While she's in

"The Bridge"
"Queensbridge"

Dead dreams, bought and sold
You gotta try and receive your goal
However you do it, however you may
Don't ever listen to what nobody say
Cause I will tell you the deal
You gotta go by what your heart feel
Cause if you don't, you'll be misled
By stupid little things put inside your head
By someone else that you will see
They're trying to lead your destiny
Grab hold of your heavy chain
Which people always pull and always trying to restrain
You heard just what I said
They're always pulling you back when you wanna get ahead
They pull you back cause they're not with it
You talk about school, they talk about 'quit it'
Soon you'll see that time does fly
But you spent most of it out gettin high
Thought about it, much, much later
Could've went to school and been much greater
But you chose to lead that fate
Now you're sucking on a bone when it should've been steak
The whole purpose of the story I told
Was mainly to inspire you to reach your goal
Stop walking through life as if you were blind
You should reach for your goal cause I'm reaching for mine
And I'm from

"The Bridge"
"Queensbridge"
