"Rap Artists Can't Sing"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

You're scratching records and shouting words obscene
Rap artists can't sing
I hope you agree. That crap bugs me

Jay-Z is no Stevie Wonder. Ice-T's no Al Green
They do not please me. Bad, gramatic'ly

They prize bling possessions, lyrics get me down
No vocal inflections, violent drones make me frown

I've found the most annoying sound there is
Rap artists can't sing
Gangsta rap, you see, is a crime to me

Eminem has spoken. He mis-uses nouns
Beach Boys or the Tokens, singin' rounds? I'll be 'round!

You rappin' bout yo' guns, or yo' gangs or sex?
Not a classy thing
That stuff, musically, makes me queasy
Parody by Mason "bad rap" Resnick

Mason - lol..."bad rap" indeed. I guess it's better to be serving a bum rap than be listening to a rap bum! ;D

"Rap" is a three-letter abbreviation for a four-letter word.

Thanks OMRibber, Pat, Micey and TT! After listening to Eminem's latest screech-fest (I have two teenage daughters who are into his rap, as it were) I felt compelled to do this one...
