Clap your hands, everybody If you got what it takes 'Cause I'm Kurtis Blow and I want you to know That these are the breaks
Breakes on a bus, brakes on a car Breaks to make you a superstar Breaks to win and breaks to lose But these here breaks will rock your shoes And these are the breaks Break it up, break it up, break it up!
If your woman steps out with another man (That's the breaks, that's the breaks) And she runs off with him to Japan And the IRS says they want to chat And you can't explain why you claimed your cat And Ma Bell sends you a whopping bill With eighteen phone calls to Brzil And you borrowed money from the mob And yesterday you lost your job Well, these are the breaks Break it up, break it up, break it up
Throw your hands up in the sky And wave 'em 'round from side to side And if youdeserve a break tonight Somebody say alright! (All right) Say ho-oo! (Ho-oo!) And you don't stop Keep on, somebody scream! (Owwwww!) Break down!
Breaks on a stage, breaks on a screen Breaks to make your wallet lean Breaks run cold and breaks run hot Some folks got 'em and some have not But these are the breaks Break it up, break it up, break it up! Break down!
To the girl in brown, stop messing around (Break it up, break it up) To the guy in blue, whatcha gonna do? To the girl in green, don't be so mean And the guy in red, say what I said Break down!
Brakes on a plane, brakes on a train Breaks to make you go insane Breaks in love, breaks in war But we got the breaks to get you on the floor And these are the breaks Break it up, break it up, break it up! Break down! Yo!
Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it! Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it! Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it! Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!
You say last week you met the perfect guy (That's the breaks, that's the breaks) And he promised you the stars in the sky He said his Cadilac was gold But he didn't say it was ten years old He took you out to the Red Coach grill But he forgot the cash and you paid the bill And he told you the story of his life But he forgot the part about...his wife! Huh! Huh! Well, these are the breaks! Break it up, break it up, break it up! Break down!

Fall Out Boy's "The Kids Aren't Alright" song title is not a reference to The Offspring's 1998 single of the same name. It actually alludes to The Who's 1979 rockumentary film called The Kids Are Alright.
