  • Song Lyrics:
    So you think you're bad, with your rap
    Well, I'll tell ya, pilgrim. I started the crap
    When you were in diapers and wetting the sheets
    I was at the Ponderosa rapping to the beat

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    Sure, I rustled some cattle and tended the sheep
    But my main concern was rapping to the beat
    I don't bother nobody, I'm a real nice guy, kinda
    laid back like a, dead fly

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh
    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    I'm talkin', here and now
    Later for the cattle and rustlin' the cow
    If I had a chance to do a repeat
    You can bet your sweet bippy I'd be rappin' to the beat

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    Que pasa, amigos? Not a *pasa* I see
    Two hundred punks? Well, what ya gonna do?
    I got two six shooters that'll see me through
    That's, twelve dead...
    and a hundred and eighty-eight pallbearers

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    What I do on your grave won't pass for flowers, either

    Now Kurtis Blow, Run-D.M.C.
    You haven't heard of rap, 'til ya heard it from me
    I'm the baddest rapper in history
    And there'll be no more, after me

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch
    Santa Barbara that is
    Swimmin' pools, and movie stars
    Well, the first thing ya know ol' Ron's the President
    The kinfolk said, "Ron, move away from there"
    Said, "In The White House is where you wanna be"
    So he loaded up the Lincoln and he moved to D.C.

    Washington, that is
    Politicians taking a sip
    Foreign dignitaries taking a trip
    High tax and plenty Cadillacs

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh
    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    Now ya see me in my movies, doin my thing
    But deep in my heart, I've wanted to sing
    "Wayyyy dowwwn, upon the swannnny riverrrrrr
    Farrrr, farrr awayyy
    Titwillow, titwillow, titwillow"
    I don't think, that's your style
    But I'll tell ya pilgrim, I'm versatile
    Aretha Franklin, Aretha Franklin
    Aretha Franklin let me rock ya let me rock ya Aretha Franklin
    Let me rock ya Aretha Franklin; that's all I wanna do
    Aretha Franklinnnnnn

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh
    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    I'm feeelin' the groove now, pilgrim
    Party, over here
    Party, over there
    There's nothin to it, the way we do it
    Woop woop!
    East coast, West coast
    Texas

    Every time I put on pants
    I tell ya pilgrim, I wanna dance
    I put a quarter, in the juke'
    Then I commence, to doin the Duke

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh
    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    It's pretty easy, if you can see
    Just move your arms kinda freely
    Do a pause, and take a step
    And just make sure the beat is kept

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    I was at the Ponderosa rappin' to the beat
    Tryin' to cool off from the desert heat
    I discovered somethin, really neat
    The Duke has moves, with his feet

    Da haahh... da haahh
    Da haahh... da haahh

    I won plenty of ladies, with my charms
    But they like me the most for the moves of my arms

    Woahhh... woahhh

    I'm gonna rap, in the East
    Gonna rap, in the West
    I'll show ya pilgrim, who's the best
    Nothin' to it, the way we do it
    Skiddely-be-bop, we-bop, Scooby Doo
    Guess what, America, we love you

    Da hahhhh, da hahhhh, da hahhhh
    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh
    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

    Everybody

    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh
    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh
    Da haahh, da haahh
    Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh...
