The Lyrics

The Beatles White Album was remade and "rapped" and renamed the "Grey Album". Needless to say, Beatles fans were very upset by this (including me).
Hey Rapper Jay-Z
Don't do this to me
Rapper Jay-Z

He's taking the White Album and he's rapping all the songs
He's taking Sexy Sadie and he's singing it all wrong
What can we do except hope it won't last too long

Everybody see?
Hey Rapper Jay-Z
Don't do this to me
Rapper Jay-Z

Deep in New York City where the Imagine Circle lies
Jay and his entourage were ambushed on the sly
And Paul and Ringo zapped him right between the eyes

Everybody sing
Hey Rapper Jay-Z
You thought it could be
Rapper Jay-Z

We all told him Beatles rap was just not right
Let it go and find some other songs to write
If you do this, they'll never see the light

Everybody sing
Hey Rapper Jay-Z
It's not going to be
Rapper Jay-Z

You show my man some respect! True, it wasn't the best album he ever made, but then again, it wasn't his idea anyway.

Credit where it's due: The "Grey Album" was created by DJ Q-Bert, who immediately got his album pulled thanks to lawyers for Jay-Z and The Beatles. I'd love to hear it myself.

I believe you can get it off the Internet. I know of a lot of people who have been downloading it. And Beyonce, it might not have been his idea but he was going along with it. The Beatles weren't meant to be rapped. Wrapped? Yes. Rapped? Never.
