The Lyrics

I chose to put a rap-influenced parody to this song because I feel that Bread is about as opposite of hip-hop as one can get. Hope that you enjoy the irony!
Who rocks the shows and gets the hos?
Baby it's the hip hop man
Who's wearin' all the ice that's nice?
Baby it's the hip hop man

He can get you ill, he can get you hype
He'll tear up the club, then he'll pass the pipe
Somethin' keeps him drinkin' 'yak and Crown each day
Or a bottle of Alize

Night after night whose rhymes are tight?
Baby it's the hip hop man
Who's on the radio with beeped lyrics?
It's the hip hop man

Then on BET, he shows off his grill
You might get those fronts if you had his skill
Somethin' keeps him buyin' Caddie Escalades
Or a Navigator trade

Then you listen to the music and you like to blast it loud
You want to intimidate all the upper-crusty crowd
Then you find yourself some lyrics and some words to improvise
Or plagiarize

He can get you ill, he can get you hype
He might hurt your ears, if rap's not your type
Somethin' keeps him smokin' blunts bursting with indo
How it really makes him go

Then critics start an attack and his sales become a joke
The style begins to get whack and the crowds are screaming "Choke!"
But he doesn't have to worry, he can just go on
"The Surreal Life Sixteen"…
With Mean Gene…
Brian Austin Green…
Ben Vereen…
And Mr. Bean…
