[Verse]
 Fm
Way Out West from way back east
         Bb
Coming from a place you'd expect the least
       Db                Eb
There came a stranger, dressed in black
        Fm
From a Harlem Town, a long way back

[Verse]
        Fm
Had a Stetson hat with a band of gold
Bb
Eyes like steel, make your blood run cold
       Db                 Eb
Had a microphone hanging by his side
      Fm
Just ready to be amplified

[Verse]
     Fm
Rode into town on a big black steed
         Bb
Lookin' for a man named Ganamede
    Db                 Eb
"I hear the dude just won't get down
      Fm
If I rock this world I can rock this town!"

[Verse]
      Fm
And when they asked him for his name
          Bb
He said "Kurtis Blow, I play the rappin' game
       Db               Eb
I can do the do, I can do the deed
       Fm                            Eb  Db  Fm
And tonight I'm gonna rock Ganamede!"

[Verse]
     Fm
Now Ganamede thought he was cool
      Bb
Wore Gucci shoes, had a fancy school
   Db                      Eb
A fancy job in a big corporation
 Fm
Fancy girls all across the nation

[Verse]
       Fm
Fancy car, fancy clothes
 Bb
Fancy friends and fancy dough
Db                 Eb
Only one thing he wouldn't do
    Fm
Is let himself get down with you

[Verse]
       Fm
The stranger went to the old saloon
  Bb
Grabbed his mike and spun a tune
    Db                Eb
And everyone in the whole darn place
       Fm
Said "Do the rap and set that pace!"

[Verse]
    Fm
He rapped 'em down and he rapped 'em out
    Bb
He made 'em dance and he made 'em shout
    Db                Eb
He said "If you like Kurtis Blow
      Fm
Then let me hear you all say...

[Bridge]
      Fm
A say ho-oo! Ho-oo!
    Bb
Hi-yo! Hi-yo!
     Db      Eb
Say Kurtis! Kurtis!
     Fm
Say Kurtis Blow! Kurtis Blow!

[Verse]
    F#m
At midnight Ganamede came in
    B
To watch the dancers move and spin
    D                E
He took a seat over by the bar
      F#m
And started smokin' a big cigar

[Verse]
      F#m
"I admit the stranger is not bad
       B
But tonight I'm gonna make him sad
       D              E
'Cause I don't care about the groove
       F#m
There ain't no dude gonna make me move!"

[Verse]
     F#m
The joint was jumpin' hard at one
     B
But Ganamede was havin' none
  D                  E
Things were really fly at two
       F#m
The stranger rapped and the tension grew

[Verse]
     F#m
But Ganamede maintained his cool
       B
"I'll make the stranger play the fool
       D              E
'Cause I don't care about the groove
       F#m                              D   E   F#m
There ain't no dude gonna make me move!"

[Verse]
      F#m
The showdown came at three o'clock
       B
The stranger said, "I'm gonna make you rock
           D                        E
I'm gonna make you move, I'm gonna make you dance
         F#m
They're gonna take you out in an ambulance

[Verse]
    F#m
Now everybody lend a hand
     B
I'm gonna make you be the band
      D                  E
There ain't no jive, no superstition
       F#m
We're gonna have a little demolition
     F#m
Get down!

[Chorus]
N.C.
Now stomp your feet
N.C.
To the funky beat
N.C.
Just clap your hands
N.C.
And let the beat expand
N.C.
Let me here the bass
N.C.
Put it in my face
                   F#m7
Let the guitar play
                   F#m7
Just put it away
     F#m7              F#m7
And now I think we've got the groove
    F#m7                 F#m7    D   E   F#m
So Ganamede, get up and move!"

[Verse]
    F#m
Now everyone looked at the bar
        B
At the lonely man with the big cigar
    D                 E
He began to move, he began to shake
      F#m
He'd had as much as he could take

[Verse]
    F#m
He took his body to the floor
      B
And then the crowd began to roar
       D               E
The stranger just had done the deed
     F#m
And rocked the house with Ganamede

[Verse]
     F#m
From three to four he couldn't stop
      B
From four to five he just had to rock
      D              E
From five to six he let it loose
    F#m
At seven he still had the juice

[Verse]
   F#m
At eight o'clock he was goin' strong
 B
Gettin' down with every song
    D               E
At nine o'clock he couldn't dance
     F#m
And someone called an ambulance

[Interlude]
F#m                    F#m         E     D
1     +     2    +     3     +     4     +
C#7                    C#7
1     +     2    +     3     +     4     +
C#7                    C#7         D     E
1     +     2    +     3     +     4     +
F#m                    F#m
1     +     2    +     3     +     4     +

[Verse]
Fm7
As they put him in the back
         Bb
Of that big white shiny Cadillac
           Db           Eb
He said "Please get me Kurtis Blow
  Fm
There's something that he ought to know"

[Verse]
    Fm7
He said "I thought I'd make my name
    Bb
By beatin' you at the rappin' game
     Db          Eb
But you beat me fair and square
    Fm
And anyway, I just don't care."

[Verse]
       Fm7
The stranger asked him what he meant
      Bb
Said Ganamede, "I am content
   Db            Eb
I never used to catch a groove
    Fm
I never used to dance or move

[Verse]
    Fm7
But it's more fun to play the fool
       Bb
Than tryin' hard to be real cool
   Db              Eb
So anytime you're back in town
     Fm                                  Eb  Db  Fm
I'm gonna get up and I'm gonna get down!"

[Verse]
       Fm7
The stranger watched him drive away
  Bb
Knowing what he'd done that day
      Db                Eb
And then he went right back inside
    Fm
To make the dancers slip and slide

[Verse]
    Fm7
To rock 'em out, to rock 'em in
    Bb
To make 'em rock it down again
     Db              Eb
And he said "If you like my sound
 Fm
Let me hear you all say...

[Verse]
       Fm7
Throw down! Throw down!
         Bb
At the showdown! At the showdown!
       Db          Eb
Say Throw down! Throw down!
         Fm
At the showdown! At the showdown!

[Chorus]
N.C.
Now stomp your feet
N.C.
To the funky beat
N.C.
Just clap your hands
N.C.
And let the beat expand
N.C.
Let me here the bass
N.C.
Put it in my face
                   F#m7
Let the guitar play
                   F#m7
Just put it away
           F#m7
A-rock on!
