    The Beastie Boys

     

    No sleep ‘til

     

    / E5 - - (G5) / (A5) - B5 G5 / E5 - - (G5) / (A5) - B5 G5 /

                                                        Brooklyn!

    / (rest) - - - - /

    Foot on the pedal, never ever false metal

    / (rest) - - - - /

    Engine running hotter than a boiling kettle

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    My job ain't a job, It's a real good time

    / (rest) - - B5 G5 /

    City to city I'm-a running my rhymes.

     

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    On location, touring around the nation

    / (rest) - - - - /

    Beastie Boys always on vacation

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    Itchy trigger finger but a stable turntable

    / (rest) - - B5 G5 /

    I do what I do best because I'm willing and able.

     

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    Ain't no faking, your money I'm taking

    / (rest) - - - - /

    Going coast to coast to watch all the people shaking.

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    While you're at the job working nine to five

    / (rest) - - - - /

    The Beastie Boys at the Garden cold kickin' it live.

     

    / E5 - - (G5) / (A5) - B5 G5 / E5 - - (G5) / (A5) - B5 G5 /

                             No sleep ‘til

                    

    / E5 - - (G5) / (A5) - B5 G5 /

    Another plane, Another train, Another bottle in the brain,

    Another fan, Another fight, Another drive all night

     

    / (rest) - - - - /

    Our manager's crazy, He always smokes dust

    / (rest) - - - - /

    He's got his own room at the back of the bus.

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    Tour around the world, you rock around the clock

    / (rest) - - B5 G5 /

    Plane to hotel’s just a 5 minute walk

     

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    We're trashing hotels like it's going out of style

    / (rest) - - - - /

    Getting paid along the way 'cause it's worth your while.

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    Four on the floor Ad-Rock's out the door

    / (rest) - - - - /

    M.C.A.'s in the back because he gotta lotta chores.

     

    / E5 (rest) - - - /

    We got a safe in the trunk with money in a stack

    / (rest) - - - - /

    With dice in the front and Brooklyn's in the back.

    Born and bred Brooklyn, the USA

    / (rest) - - - - /

    They call me Adam Yauch but I'm MCA

    / (rest) - - - - /

    Like a lemon to a lime, a lime to a lemon
