The boys and the Dukes are ready to rumble 
The word on the street some heads are gonna tumble
 Blades gonna flash when streets gang clash 
In the avenue tonight

When the lightning strikes
Zip gun Johnny's finger is itchin'
The lid's gonna blow up in hell's kitchen 
It's an eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth 
It's so ruthless when they fight 

When the lightning strikes
And it's free for all in the parking lot
And who'll rule the street 
And the night explodes
When the cops bring down the heat

And the chains they crash like thunder  While the weak ones all retreat  Gotta draw first blood
Or they'll read your funeral rights

When the lightning strikes
It's dog eat dog when you meet your rival 
And the combat zone it's your means of survival  Gonna get last licks on a suicide blitz
With a broken dagger knife 
When the lightning strikes

And it's free for all in the parking lot
And who'll rule the street 
And the night explodes
When the cops bring down the heat

And the chains they crash like thunder  While the weak ones all retreat  Gotta draw first blood
Or they'll read your funeral rights

Oh, oh
When the lightning strikes
When the lightning strikes
When the lightning strikes
 Lightning and thunder 
When the lightning strikes
