The Lyrics

Remember Al Sharpton? Tawanna Brawley? This should bring back some fond memories of old Reverend Al!
This man walks on the street, they say "Why is he huge in the middle?"
Yeah, "Why is he huge in the middle?...when his brain it seems so small?"
He loves a photo opportunity; He likes to shout about redemption.
Reminds me of a cartoon in a Mad Magazine
He's a Gold digger! Gold digger!
See him on the news tonight!
Far removed from the Baptist preacher
Mr. Big Belly, Big Belly,
Get him the %$#@ away from me
You know, I don't find his crap amusing anymore...

(he says:)
"I have 20 bodyguards, & we can boycott your hotel.
Most folks call me Reverend, but homey, when you call me you can call me Al."

This man walks on the street, he gets lots of attention
There's no shortage of attention cause his God Damn mouth is so big..
Does he have a wife & family?
Why don't he stay there?
Will he be your role model? Then all respect for you will be gone, gone...
He put attention from the media on some wholly innocent little NY girl
and it was wrong, wrong! It was a fabricated incident...
full of lies & allegations!

(he says)
"I have 20 bodyguards, & we can boycott your hotel.
Most folks call me Reverend, but homey when you call me you can call me Al."
Call me Al.....

When he walks down the street, it turns into a strange world.
A really bizarre world every time he comes around
Ebonics is his language, he speaks it fluently...
He's an outspoken man....
He is surrounded by the sound, the sound....
of prattle in the media
Picketing the colleges;
He looks around, around, sees his own face on the TV screen.
Basking in celebrity, He says "Amen" , "Hallelujah"!

"I have 20 bodyguards, & we can boycott your hotel.
Most folks call me Reverend, but homey, when you call me you can call me Al."
