N.C.
Clap your hands everybody
N.C.
If you got what it takes
N.C.
Cause I'm Kurtis Blow and I want you to know
N.C.
That these are the breaks

Bm7                    Bm7   Bm6   Bm
1     +     2    +     3     +     4     +

Bm7                    Bm7         A

[Verse]
  Bm7              Bm7   Bm6   Bm
Brakes on a bus, brakes on a car
  Bm7                 Bm7   A
Breaks to make you a superstar
  Bm7               Bm7  Bm6  Bm
Breaks to win and breaks to lose
      Bm7                   Bm7        A
But these here breaks will rock your shoes

[Bridge]
      G             A
And these are the breaks
         G                  A
Break it up, break it up, break it up

[Verse]
         Bm7             Bm7   Bm6   Bm
If your woman steps out with another man
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
         Bm7            Bm7   Bm6   Bm
And she runs off with him to Japan
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
        Bm7         Bm7   Bm6   Bm
And the IRS says they want to chat
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
         Bm7               Bm7  Bm6    Bm
And you can't explain why you claimed your cat
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)

[Verse]
         Bm7               Bm7  Bm6    Bm
And Ma Bell sends you a whopping bill
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
     Bm7       Bm7  Bm6    Bm
With 18 phone calls to Brazil
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
         Bm7           Bm7  Bm6  Bm
And you borrowed money from the mob
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
     Bm7           Bm7  Bm6    Bm
And yesterday you lost your job
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)

[Bridge]
        G             A
Well, these are the breaks
         G                  A
Break it up, break it up, break it up

[Chorus]
N.C.
Throw your hands up in the sky
N.C.
And wave em round from side to side
N.C.
And if you deserve a break tonight
N.C.
Somebody say alright!
N.C.
(All right) Say ho-oo!
N.C.
(Ho-oo!) And you don't stop
N.C.
Keep on, somebody scream!
N.C.
(Owwwww!) Break down!

[Verse]
  Bm7               Bm7  Bm6    Bm
Breaks on a stage, breaks on a screen
  Bm7                Bm7    A
Breaks to make your wallet lean
  Bm7               Bm7  Bm6    Bm
Breaks run cold and breaks run hot
 Bm7                    Bm7       A
Some folks got 'em and some have not

[Bridge]
      G             A
But these are the breaks
         G                  A
Break it up, break it up, break it up!

You say last week you met the perfect guy

(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
         Bm7             Bm7  Bm6    Bm
And he promised you the stars in the sky
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
    Bm7        Bm7  Bm6    Bm
He said his Cadillac was gold
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
        Bm7             Bm7  Bm6    Bm
But he didn't say it was 10 years old
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
    Bm7                Bm7  Bm6    Bm
He took you out to the Red Coach grill
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
           Bm7               Bm7  Bm6    Bm
But he forgot the cash and you paid the bill
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
        Bm7           Bm7  Bm6    Bm
And he told you the story of his life
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
           Bm7           Bm7  Bm6    Bm
But he forgot the part about...his wife!
  Bm7                 Bm7        A
(That's the breaks, that's the breaks!)
