    •  I've been... (9+ / 0-)

      ...singing In the Still of the Night to myself for three days now.  I need more doo wop in my life.

      I haven't listened to Sugar Hill Gang in years.  However, I do got a color teevee, so I can see, the Blazers play basketball.

      ;-P

      Well, if they play this year.  Argh.

    •  Rappers Delight was the first one I ever learned (3+ / 0-)

      Back in college, I had a friend who had rap records (yes, actual vinyl records), Sugarhill Gang, Grandmaster Flash, stuff like that.

      Later on, I went to see Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five play in London, and I think I was one of the few people in the audience who knew most of the lyrics, not just the hits. Of course, hip hop hadn't quite hit the UK yet, so I had the home field advantage.

      Here you go!

      Rapper's Delight

      I said a hip, hop, the hippie the hippie
      to the hip hip hop, an you dont stop
      the rock it to the bang bang boogie,
      say up jumped the boogie
      to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat

      now what you hear is not a test--I'm rappin to the beat
      and me, the groove, and my friends
      are gonna try to move your feet
      see I am Wonder Mike and I like to say hello
      to the black, to the white, the red, and the brown,
      the purple and yellow
      but first I gotta bang bang the boogie to the boogie
      say up jump the boogie to the bang bang boogie
      let's rock, you dont stop
      rock the riddle that will make your body rock
      well so far you've heard my voice but I brought two friends along
      and next on the mike is my man Hank
      come on, Hank, sing that song...

      check it out, I'm the c-a-s-an-the-o-v-a
      and the rest is f-l-y
      ya see I go by the code of the doctor of the mix
      and these reasons I'll tell ya why
      ya see I'm six foot one and I'm tons of fun
      and I dress to a t
      ya see I got more clothes than Muhammad Ali
      and I dress so viciously
      I got bodyguards, I got two big cars
      that definitely ain't the wack
      I got a Lincoln Continental and a Sunroof Cadillac
      so after school, I take a dip in the pool
      which really is on the wall
      I got a color TV so I can see
      the Knicks play basketball
      hear me talkin bout checkbooks, credit cards
      more money than a sucker could ever spend
      but I wouldnt give a sucker or a bum from the rucker
      not a dime 'til I made it again
      ya go hotel, motel, whatcha gonna do today
      (say what)
      ya say im gonna get a fly girl gonna get some spankin'
      drive off in a def oj
      everybody go, hotel, motel, Holiday Inn
      say if your girl starts actin' up,
      then you take her friend
      Master Gee, am I mellow
      its on you so what you gonna do?

      well it's on n on n on on n on
      the beat dont stop until the break of dawn
      I said M-a-s, t-e-r, a G with a double e
      I said I go by the unforgettable name
      of the man they call the Master Gee
      well, my name is known all over the world
      by all the foxy ladies and the pretty girls
      I'm goin' down in history
      as the baddest rapper there could ever be
      now I'm feelin' the highs and ya feelin' the lows
      the beat starts gettin' into your toes
      ya start poppin' ya fingers and stompin' your feet
      and movin' your body while you're sittin' in your seat
      and the damn ya start doin' the freak
      I said damn, right outta your seat
      then ya throw your hands high in the air
      ya rockin' to the rhythm, shake your derriere
      ya rockin' to the beat without a care
      with the sureshot MCs for the affair
      now, I'm not as tall as the rest of the gang
      but I rap to the beat just the same
      I got a little face and a pair of brown eyes
      all I'm here to do ladies is hypnotize
      singin' on n n on n on n on
      the beat don't stop until the break of dawn
      singin on n n on n on on n on
      like a hot buttered a pop da pop da pop dibbie dibbie
      pop da pop pop ya don't dare stop
      come alive y'all, gimme what ya got
      I guess by now you can take a hunch
      and find that I am the baby of the bunch
      'but that's okay I still keep in stride
      cause all I'm here to do is just wiggle your behind
      singin on n n on n on n on
      the beat don't stop until the break of dawn
      singin on n n on n on on n on
      rock rock y'all, throw it on the floor
      I'm gonna freak ya here I'm gonna freak ya there
      I'm gonna move you outta this atmosphere
      cause I'm one of a kind and I'll shock your mind
      I'll put t-t-tickets in your behind
      I said 1-2-3-4, come on girls, get on the floor
      a-come alive, y'all a-gimme what ya got
      cause I'm guaranteed to make you rock
      I said 1-2-3-4, tell me Wonder Mike,
      what are you waitin' for?
      I said a hip hop the hippie to the hippie
      the hip hip hop, an' you don't stop
      the rock it to the bang bang boogie
      say up jumped the boogie
      to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat
      skiddlee beebop a we rock a scoobie doo
      and guess what? America, we love you!
      'cause ya rock and ya roll with so much soul
      you could rock till you're a hundred and one years old
      I don't mean to brag I don't mean to boast
      but we like hot butter on our breakfast toast <-[best line!]
      rock it up baby bubbah
      baby bubbah to the boogie da bang bang da boogie
      to the beat beat, it's so unique
      come on everybody and dance to the beat

      I said a hip hop the hippie the hippie
      to the hip hip hop, a you don't stop
      rock it out baby bubbah to the boogie da bang bang
      the boogie to the boogie da beat

      I said I cant wait til the end of the week
      when I'm rappin' to the rhythm of a groovy beat
      and attempt to raise your body heat
      just blow your mind so that you can't speak
      and do a thing but a rock and shuffle your feet
      and let it change up to a dance called the freak
      and when ya finally do come in to your rhythmic beat
      rest a little while so ya don't get weak
      I know a man named Hank
      he has more rhymes than a serious bank
      so come on Hank sing that song
      to the rhythm of the boogie da bang bang da bong

      well, I'm imp the dimp, the ladies pimp
      the women fight for my delight
      but I'm the grandmaster with the three MCs
      that shock the house for the young ladies
      and when you come inside, into the front
      you do the freak, spank, and do the bump
      and when the sucker MCs try to prove a point

      we're treacherous trio, we're the serious joint
      a from sun to sun and from day to day
      I sit down and write a brand new rhyme
      because they say that miracles never cease
      I've created a devastating masterpiece
      I'm gonna rock the mike 'til you can't resist
      everybody, I say it goes like this
      well I was comin' home late one dark afternoon
      a reporter stopped me for a interview
      she said she's heard stories and she's heard fables
      that I'm vicious on the mike and the turntables
      this young reporter I did adore
      so I rocked a vicious rhyme like I never did before
      she said damn fly guy, I'm in love with you
      the Casanova legend must have been true
      I said by the way baby, what's your name?
      said I go by the name of Lois Lane
      and you could be my boyfriend, you surely can
      just let me quit my boyfriend called Superman
      I said he's a fairy I do suppose
      flyin' through the air in pantyhose
      he may be very sexy or even cute
      but he looks like a sucker in a blue and red suit
      I said you need a man who's got finesse
      and his whole name across his chest
      he may be able to fly all through the night
      but can he rock a party 'til the early light?
      he cant satisfy you with his little worm
      but I can bust you out with my super sperm
      I go do it, I go do it, I go do it, do it , do it
      an I'm here an I'm there,
      I'm big bang Hank, I'm everywhere
      just throw your hands up in the air
      and party hardy like you just don't care
      let's do it don't stop y'all, a tick-tock y'all, you don't stop
      go hotel, motel, what you gonna do today
      (say what)
      I'm gonna get a fly girl, gonna get some spank,
      drive off in a def oj
      everybody go hotel, motel, Holiday Inn
      you say if your girl starts actin' up,
      then you take her friend
      I say skip, dive, what can I say
      I cant fit em all inside my oj
      so I just take half and bust them out
      I give the rest to Master Gee
      so he could shock the house
      it was twelve o'clock one Friday night
      I was rockin to the beat and feelin' all right
      everybody was dancin' on the floor
      doin all the things they never did before
      and then this fly fly girl with a sexy lean
      she came into the bar, she came into the scene
      as she traveled deeper inside the room
      all the fellas checked out her white Sassoons
      she came up to the table, looked into my eyes
      then she turned around and shook her behind
      so I said to myself, it's time for me to release
      my vicious rhyme I call my masterpiece
      and now people in the house, this is just for you
      a little rap to make you boogaloo
      now the group ya hear is called Phase Two
      and let me tell ya somethin' we're a helluva crew
      once a week we're on the street
      just a-cuttin' the jams and making it free
      for you to party ya got to have the movies
      so we'll get right down and give you the groove
      for you to dance you gotta get hype
      so we'll get right down for you tonight
      now the system's on and the girls are there
      ya definitely have a rockin affair
      but let me tell ya somethin there's still one fact
      that to have a party, ya got to have a rap
      so when the party's over you're makin' it home
      and tryin' to sleep before the break of dawn
      and while ya sleepin' ya start to dream
      and thinkin' how ya danced on the disco scene
      my name appears in your mind
      yeah, a name you know that was right on time
      it was Phase Two just a doin' a do
      rockin' ya down cause ya know we could
      to the rhythm of the beat that makes ya freak
      come alive girls, get on your feet
      to the rhythm of the beat to the beat the beat
      to the double beat beat that it makes ya freak
      to the rhythm of the beat that says ya go on
      on n on into the break of dawn
      now I got a man comin on right now
      he's guaranteed to throw down
      he goes by the name of Wonder Mike
      come on Wonder Mike, do what ya like!

      like a can of beer that's sweeter than honey
      like a millionaire that has no money
      like a rainy day that is not wet
      like a gamblin' fiend that does not bet
      like Dracula with out his fangs
      like the boogie to the boogie without the boogie bang
      like collard greens that don't taste good
      like a tree that's not made out of wood
      like goin up and not comin down
      is just like the beat without the sound no sound
      to the beat beat, ya do the freak
      everybody just rock and dance to the beat

      have you ever went over a friends house to eat
      and the food just ain't no good?
      I mean the macaroni's soggy, the peas are mushed
      and the chicken tastes like wood
      so you try to play it off like you think you can
      by sayin' that you're full
      and then your friend says Momma, he's just being polite
      he ain't finished uh uh that's bull
      so your heart starts pumpin' and you think of a lie
      and you say that you already ate
      and your friend says Man, there's plenty of food
      so you pile some more on your plate
      while the stinky foods steamin'
      your mind starts to dreamin'
      of the moment that it's time to leave
      and then you look at your plate
      and your chicken's slowly rottin'
      into something that looks like cheese
      oh so you say that's it, I got to leave this place
      I don't care what these people think
      I'm just sittin here makin myself nauseous
      with this ugly food that stinks
      so you bust out the door while its still closed
      still sick from the food you ate
      and then you run to the store for quick relief
      from a bottle of Kaopectate
      and then you call your friend two weeks later
      to see how he has been
      and he says I understand about the food
      baby bubbah but we're still friends

      with a hip hop the hippie to the hippie
      the hip hip a hop a you don't stop the rockin
      to the bang bang boogie
      say up jump the boogie to the rhythm of the boogie the beat
      I say Hank can ya rock
      can ya rock to the rhythm that just don't stop
      can ya hip me to the shoobie doo
      I said come on
      I go to the halls and then ring the bell
      because I am the man with the clientele
      and if ya ask me why I rock so well
      a big bang, I got clientele
      and from the time I was only six years old
      I never forgot what I was told
      it was the best advice that I ever had
      it came from my wise dear old Dad
      he said sit down punk I wanna talk to you
      and don't say a word until I'm through
      now there's a time to laugh a time to cry
      a time to live and a time to die
      a time to break and a time to chill
      to act civilized, or act real ill
      but whatever ya do in your lifetime
      ya never let a MC steal your rhyme
      so from sixty six 'til this very day
      I'll always remember what he had to say
      so when the sucker MCs try to chump my style
      I let them know that I'm versatile
      I got style finesse and a little black book
      that's filled with rhymes and I know you wanna look
      but there's a thing that separates you from me
      and that's called originality
      because my rhymes are on from what you heard
      I didn't even bite and not a goddamn word
      and I say a little more later on tonight
      so the sucker MCs can bite all night
      a tick-tock y'all a beat beat y'all
      a lets rock y'all ya don't stop
      ya go hotel, motel, whatcha gonna do today?
      (say what)

      to the beat that it makes you freak

      at the age of five, I didn't take no jive
      with the Master Gee its all the way live
