The Lyrics

A boy was born -- a talented young brother
His name was Sean, but soon he took another
As well you know, a name collector is he -
'Puff' had to blow, so now he's called 'P. Diddy'
One name's not enough, not enough for the 'Did-da-a-a-a-ay'

For his career, he entered into hip-hop
Got into gear, and climbed right to the tip top
He ventured out to clothing, film and t.v.
Despite his clout, it seems that nothing's really
Ever quite enough, quite enough for the 'Did-da-a-a-a-ay'

He's got one girl who is his baby's momma
And 'round the world, his J.Lo fling was drama
He's got a crew of cheezy video hos
But here's the truth that even cheezy hos know:
One girl's not enough, not enough for the 'Did-da-a-a-a-ay'

He vowed to run - they said "he's photo-op-ing
Before he's done, we're sure that he'll be dropping"
He kept his vow, and he preserved his honor
So he is now a New York Marathoner
Money's not enough, not enough for the 'Did-da-a-a-a-ay'

He's widely known, from Aberdeen to Zagreb
Abroad or home, he's got a 'does it all' rep
Does what he wants in fabulous or flawed way
No wonder 'Sean' is starring now on Broadway
Fame is not enough, not enough for the 'Did-da-a-a-a-ay'

The man of fame and wealth and girlfriends pretty
Should change his name -- he's moved on from 'P. Diddy'
Though some I know, would find the name conceited
It's apropos to change his name to 'E. Did'
Cuz 'e did it all, did it all, in the cit-a-a-ay

Is DIddy the Esther of hip-hop? Loved the lines with "Zagreb" and "rep." 5s for this dandy Diddy ditty.

Diddy is yesterday's news. And even yesterday, he wasn't news.
