The Lyrics

Never thought that I would do an epic rap song about a yo-yo... What have you done to me Drake?
Toy is freaking grand! You don't have one, do ya?
Little money at Toys R Us and you'll have a new one
Goes up, down even sideways twists
Don't have tops twirl, Those are lame you won't have fun
From Ancient Greece to modern living rooms
It's the star, All the children put this thing to use
Wrist shakes, I'm a pro though made some mistakes
Drive me insane, The string breaks, Such headaches
Spin that wheel! Spin that wheel! Spin that wheel!
You will thrive, Playing and you will find thrills, Uh!
Skills you are building, Don't leave it on your shelf
Try the "Breakaway", Turing heads when that toy sways, Okay
It's so great, Rhode scholars will have their jaws drop
Made from wood or scrap metal at the toy shop
Use two, Screw one, That is way too easy
Why not do three? Then you really will appease me
Pogs, frisbees, pogo sticks in the dumpster
From adult to youngster, Joined the club filled with wonder
I can do that trick "Brain Twister" without blisters
You can tweet about it up on Twitter, I am such a trickster
Yeah, You'll see me reel it!
Just like a fishing reel!
With this toy that I hold, I have got some clever skills
Make it look like it floats
This is how I pay the bills
When you learn the "Tsunami" I'll hear you squeal
I'm the teacher, You're stumped

You can play this solo
Check that Duncan logo
You can be a dunce and still be pro with Yo-Yo
That's the toy with which we play, which we play, which we play
In your fist that thing is clenched you can throw LEGOs away
Watch it sway, watch it sway, Made out of plastic or clay
I'm famous as an athlete getting paid
On my finger, Shoots up

Fun times, Such fun times
I'll do the "Mach 5" and "Atom Smasher"
"Forward pass" is a stunt
Butterfly types are trusty but you can try the puck
Made it glide at the contest
Did it while I stood with mad skillz I am blessed
And it's unstringed, y'all, That's why I am the best!
Greet ya with "Yo!" won't say "Hi" that's a mess
Won't fly up, Stays down
String's twisted, Dangit!
Not fluid, Knot's in the thread
Fixed that now I rock, More tricks are spread! YEAH!
Show you "Spaghetti" and I can "Walk the Dog"
See me "Rock the Baby"
Maybe it's crazy but my moves are cooler
I don't cheat, Fingers in the strings so super
I... Can pull the "Robin Hood"
Shoot, shoot, fake arrows good
"Pop N Fresh's" tricky, Must be a nut!

You can be a Bozo
Complete utter dodo
Once you have this clutched you can score the chicks with Yo-Yo
And you can rock it till it's frayed, till it's frayed, till it's frayed
In your sweat you're getting drenched from some intense kind of play
Make it stay, make it stay, With that "Lindy Loop" you aced
I know you're not a dummy, You've got grace
On your finger, Shoots up, shoots up, shoots up

On your finger, Shoots up, shoots up, shoots up

Come down to my dojo
I'll enhance your mojo
You think it's too tough, You can't be a wimp to Yo-Yo
Cause I'm at the master stage, master stage, master stage
Can you smell that stench? The smell of Yo-Yo swag
In the bag, in the bag, You will have this in the bag
Now screaming for your mommy, Soon you'll brag
On your finger, Shoots up (Shoots up, shoots up)

Now I gotta go look up what 'Pop N Fresh' is...555 for you for the simple fact that Yoyos and Drake actually go together. Who knew?! :)

Technical virtuosity on the yoyo AND parody writing. This cries for a demonstration video...let's see you do it, man!

(Artistry) Ah, this gives me memories of those expert yo-yo people who came to school and got everyone to buy a yo-yo to try and do all the awesome stuff they did. I could never get the damn thing to come back up. Clearly I didn't have an iota of the yo-yo skills the singer in this awesome parody possesses! 555 revolutions!

Surprisingly, a nice piece of work here (not surprisingly from you, but a surprise based on the topic and original artist combination). A lot of good lines and that pacing was pretty solid. Good job!

(Artistry) You really know your yo-yo info. I liked this a lot. Pacing was good, and I liked the swagger of the character. Very fun. I liked the "I only greet you with 'yo'" line.
