Ugly Duckling

Ugly Duckling - Cardiff

rate me

(And now ladies and gentlemen)

Here we go with an energy burst

Disbursed into a room like

We're gonna be in your town soon

So if you wanna hear a rap band

Who can drop the bomb like the Gap Band

Then we got you covered like an afghan

Half man, half cat, raps off the hinges

A knuckle head cringes as if I had syringes

I'm not a doctor but I brought the right dosage

To mend 'em and send 'em on their way like postage

I got the audience noddin their head

Like a foreigner pretending that he knows what I said

With both mics checked, two Tech's and a Vestax

Blowin up the set, make it hard for the next act

Never in the daylight, call me Dracula

Flippin like a spatula once I get the stage mic

Wouldn't leave a page white, I write on

And the crowd stays hype even when I'm gone

I wish I was in Cardiff, they know how to rock

But what about Austin, they were goin off

Don't forget Belfast, they were top notch

So come on everybody let's flop

Einstein, what you doing

(I keep diggin, I keep scratchin)

Oh, well where'd you get this record then huh

(Searched everywhere)

Like where

(I searched for the one in Ohio)

Where else, where else

(New York City, Dallas, and Chicago)

Got the music coming straight out of the mind

Of the Young Einstein

He signed to find beats For my rhyme design

I'm searching for some inventiveness

Within my sentences, rhythm is the genesis

Forming like photosynthesis

Infinite, limitless

As never before

Getting so fly you'll shut the screen door

From mop tops and sock hops

To hot shots with stock ops

To Don Knotts and Sasquatch

Put this in your lock box

I saturate breaks, evaporate tapes

And I made dates in different shaped states

Drove eight hours straight, leavin dents in the vents

Makin sure the show is worth every penny we spent

Livin on per diems, US and European

Mike pack the merchandise (what) believe it

Even when promoters give us the cold shoulder

It wasn't that way in Minnesota (that's true)

But I wish I was in Boston, they know how to rock

But what about Bristol, they were goin off

Don't forget Burlington, they were top notch

So come on everybody let's flop

But wait, before we do, let me say thank you

To every single person who supported the crew

Like the DJ's, the writers, and college radio

But most of all the cats who helped us out at the show

Some even took us out to eat and let us sleep in their house

I got the bed, I got the floor, well then I'll crash on the couch

With all the people that we've met

And all the places we've been

Yo we gotta give it up

Then let me run it again

I wish I was in Berlin, they know how to rock

But what about Boulder, they were goin off

Aberdeen, Eugene, they were top notch

So come on everybody let's flop

Yeah I gotta say hello to my man Tyler

And the big red posse out in Lincoln

I wanna say hey to Molly and Brandon out in Brooklyn

And I wanna send a big "how arrre ya"

Out to Brian at UMass, Boston

Yo I wanna say what's up to my man Rob and Jeremy

From Lawrence, Kansas, what's up

My man Young O for puttin us up in Albuquerque

My man Chad from Chapel Hill, North Carolina

What's up, this is large Meezy

I wanna shout out to Thes One

Yo, if you don't got my money I'm a put you under the stairs

Manchester baby, give it up to Toronto

What's up Dublin Ireland, Tempe Arizona, Catalina

Long Beach California, Humboldt County

Yeah man, yo man I gotta ask you one last question

Before we get outta here

Where we taking this jam too (Compton)
