The Lyrics

A plea for understanding for those of us who just can't relate to urban music.....
Mem'ry's hazy
Who is Jay-Z?
Why don't I get rap?

Not a Snoop fan
What's a ho, man?
Why don't I get rap?

Never been to Compton, never heard of "bling"
Emma Nem and 20 cent, why don't these folks just sing?

This may sound rude
Where's the tune, dude?
Why don't I get rap?

What the heck's a drive-by? What's a Wu-Tang Clan?
This P. Diddy just sounds silly, what is up with "Stan"?

Word up, sucker (wha??)
Motherf****r (huh??)
I just don't get rap

Well, I think rap gets a bad one, because it's far more diverse than the crap the radio stations often play, but 5's anyway...

I like rap if it's funny and catchy and doesn't make me think someone wants to kill me. Anyway, well done.

Thanks for comments, guys. This was one of my 15 minute train of thought parodies. I don't hate rap that much- but it is parody fair game!

After spending 9 hours trying to download some Eminem song so I could vote in the last parody contest I said to myself "No way after all that are you gonna listen to this song and then dump it. Dammit, you are gonna listen to it and LIKE it!" Hee hee - you can like anything if you go thru enough trouble for it... Come to think of it, I'll take Eminem over Presley or the Beatles any a wide margin. ;-) Funny parody tho'. :-)

Kristof - Been to Compton, some parts of it are pretty nice, actually. Wear no 'bling' and don't like rap in the least. Fine job here 5's across.
