Rapper's Delight
The Sugar Hill Gang

I said a hip hop, hippie to the hippie

The hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it

To the bang bang boogie, say, up jump the boogie

To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat

Now, what you hear is not a test, I'm rappin' to the beat

And me, the groove, and my friends are gonna try to move your feet


See, I am Wonder Mike, and I'd like to say hello

To the black, to the white, the red and the brown

The purple and yellow, but first, I gotta

Bang bang, the boogie to the boogie

Say up jump the boogie to the bang bang boogie


Let's rock, you don't stop

Rock the rhythm that'll make your body rock

Well, so far you've heard my voice but I brought two friends along

And the next on the mic is my man Hank

C'mon, Hank, sing that song


Check it out, I'm the C A S A, the N O V A

And the rest is F L Y

You see I go by the code of the doctor of the mix

And these reasons I'll tell you why

You see, I'm six foot one, and I'm tons of fun


When I dress to a T

You see, I got more clothes than Muhammad Ali

And I dress so viciously

I got bodyguards, I got two big cars

That definitely ain't the wack

I got a Lincoln Continental and a sunfoofed Cadillac


So after school I take a dip in the pool which is really on the wall

I got a colour TV, so I can see the Knicks play basketball

Hear me talk about checkbooks, credit cards, mo' money

Than a sucker could ever spend

But I wouldn't give a sucker or a bum form the Rucker


Not a dime 'til I made it again, everybody go

Hotel, motel, whatcha gonna do today?

(Say what?)

'Cos I'm a get a fly girl


Gonna get some spank n' drive off in a def OJ, everybody go

Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn

Say if your girl starts actin' up, then you take her friend

Master Gee! My mellow

It's on to you, so whatcha gonna do?


Well, it's on an' on an' on, on an' on

The beat don't stop until the break of dawn

I said M A S T E R a G with a double E

I said I go by the unforgettable name

Of the man they call the Master Gee


Well, my name is known all over the world

By all the foxy ladies and the pretty girls

I'm goin' down in history

As the baddest rapper there ever could be


Now I'm feelin' the highs and you're feelin' the lows

The beat starts gettin' into your toes

You start poppin' your fingers and stompin' your feet

And movin' your body while, while you're sitting in your seat

And then damn! Ya start doin' the freak, I said

Damn! Right outta your seat


Then you throw your hands high in the air

Ya rockin' to the rhythm, shake your derriere

Ya rockin' to the beat without a care

With the sureshot MC's for the affair

Now, I'm not as tall as the rest of the gang

But I rap to the beat just the same


I got a little face, and a pair of brown eyes

All I'm here to do, ladies, is hypnotize

Singin' on an' on an' on, on an' on

The beat don't stop until the break of dawn

Singin' on an' on an' on, on an' on

Like a hot buttered pop da pop da pop dibbie dibbie


Pop da pop pop, don't you dare stop

Come alive y'all, gimme whatcha got

I guess by now you can take a hunch

And find that I am the baby of the bunch

But that's okay, I still keep in stride

'Cos all I'm here to do is just wiggle your behind


Singin' on an' on an' on, on an' on

The beat don't stop until the break of dawn

Singin' on an' on an' on, on an' on

Rock rock, y'all, throw it on the floor


I'm gonna freak you here, I'm gona freak you there

I'm gonna move you outta this atmosphere

'Cos I'm one of a kind and I'll shock your mind

I'll put TNT in your behind, I said

One, two, three, four, come on, girls, get on the floor


A-come alive, y'all, a-gimme whatcha got

'Cos I'm guaranteed to make you rock

I said one, two, three, four, tell me, Wonder Mike

What are you waiting for?


I said a hip hop, the hippie to the hippie

The hip hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it

To the bang bang boogie, say up jump the boogie

To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat

A Skiddleebebop, we rock, scooby doo

And guess what, America, we love you

'Cos you rocked and a rolled with so much soul

You could rock 'til a hundred and one years old


I don't mean to brag, I don't mean to boast

But we like hot butter on our breakfast toast

Rock it up, Baby Bubba!

Baby Bubba to the boogie da bang bang da boogie

To the beat, beat, it's unique

Come on everybody and dance to the beat


A hip hop, the hippie to the hippie

The hip hip a hop and you don't stop, rock it

Rock it out, Baby Bubba to the boogie da bang bang

The boogie to the boogie, the beat

I said, I can't wait 'til the end of the week

When I'm rappin' to the rhythm of a groovy beat

And I attempt to raise your body heat


Just blow your mind, so you can't speak

And do a thing but a-rock and shuffle your feet

And let it change up to a dance called the freak

And when you finally do come into your rhythmic beat

Reast a little while so you don't get weak


I know a man named Hank

He has more rhymes than a serious bank

So come on Hank, sing that song

To the rhythm of the boogie, the bang bang da bong!


Well, I'm Imp the Dimp, the ladies' pimp

The women fight for my delight

But I'm the grandmaster with the three MCs

That shock the house for the young ladies

And when you come inside, into the front

You do the freak, spank, and do the bump


And when the sucker MC try to prove a point

We're a treacherous trio, we're the serious joint!

A-From sun to sun and from time to time

I sit down and write a brand new rhyme

Because they say that miracles never cease

I've created a devastating masterpiece


I'm gonna rock the mic 'til you can't resist

Everybody, I say it goes like this

Well, I was walking home late one afternoon

A reporter stopped me for an interview

She said she's heard stories and she's heard fables

That I'm vicious on the mic and the turntable


This young reporter I did adore

So I rocked some vicious rhymes like I never did before

She said, Damn, fly guy, I'm in love with you

The Casanova legend must have been true

I said, By the way, baby, what's your name?


Said, I go by name of Lois Lane

And you could be my boyfriend, you surely can

Just let me quit my boyfriend called Superman

I said, He's a fairy, I do suppose

Flyin' through the air in pantyhose

He may be very sexy, or even cute

But he looks like a sucker in a blue and red suit


I said, You need a man, man who's got finesse

And his whole name across his chest

He may be able to fly all through the night

But can he rock a party 'til the early light?

He can't satisfy you with his little worm,

But I can bust you out with my super sperm


I go do it, I go do it, I go do it, do it, do it

An' I'm here an' I'm there, I'm Big Ban Hank, I'm everywhere

Just throw your hands up in the air

And party hardy like you just don't care

Let's do it, don't stop, y'all, a tick tock, y'all, you don't stop!


Go hotel, motel, whatcha gonna do today?

(Say what?)

I'm gonna get a fly girl, gonna get some spank

Drive off in a def OJ, everybody go

Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn


You say if your girl starts actin' up, then you take her friend

I say skip, dive, what can I say?

I can't fit 'em all inside my OJ

So I just tak half, and bust 'em out

I give the rest to Master Gee so he can shock the house


It was twelve o'clock one Friday night

I was rockin' to the beat and feelin' all right

Everybody was dancin' on the floor

Doin' all the things they never did before

And then this fly girl with a sexy lean

She came into the bar, she came into the scene


She travelled deeper inside the room

All the fellas checked out her white Sassoons

She came up to the table, looked into my eyes

Then she turned around and shook her behind

So I said to myself, it's time for me to release

My vicious rhyme I call my masterpiece


And now people in the house, this is just for you

A little rap to make you boogaloo

Now the group you hear is called Phase Two

And let me tell you somethin', we're a helluva crew

Once a week, we're on the street

Just to cut in the jams and look at your feet

For you to party, you gotta have the moves

So we'll get right down and get you a groove


For you to dance, you got to be hot

So we'll get right down and make you rock

Now the system's on and the girls are there

You definitely have a rockin' affair

But let me tell you somethin', there's still one fact

And to have a party, you got to have a rap


So when the party's over, you're makin' it home

And tryin' to sleep before the break of dawn

And while you're sleepin', you start to dream

And thinkin' how you danced on the disco scene

My name appears in your mind

Yeah, a name you know that was right on time


It was Phase Two just doin' a do

Rockin' you down 'cos you knew we could

To the rhythm of the beat that makes you freak

Come alive girls, get on your feet

To the rhythm of the beat to the beat the beat

To the double beat beat that makes you freak

To the rhythm of the beat that says you go on


On 'n' on into the break of dawn

Now I got a man comin' on right now

He's guaranteed to throw down

He goes by the name of Wonder Mike

Come on, Wonder Mike, do what you like!


I say a can of beer that's sweeter than honey

Like a millionaire that has no money

Like a rainy day that is not wet

Like a gamblin' fiend that does not bet

Like Dracula without his fangs


Like the boogie to the boogie without the boogie bang

Like collard greens that don't taste good

Like a tree that's not made out of wood

Like goin' up and not comin' down

Is just like the beat without the sound, no sound

To the beat beat, you do the freak


Everybody just rock and dance to the beat

Have you ever went over a friends house to eat

And the food just ain't no good?

The macaroni's soggy, the peas are mushed

And the chicken tastes like wood

So you try to play it off like you think you can

By saying that you're full

And then your friend says, Mama, he's just being polite

He ain't finished, uh-uh, that's bull!


So your heart starts pumpin' and you think of a lie

And you say that you already ate

And your friend says, Man, there's plenty of food

So you pile some more on your plate

While the stinky food's steamin', your mind starts to dreamin'

Of the moment that it's time to leave

And then you look at your plate and your chicken's slowly rottin'

Into something that looks like cheese


Oh, so you say, That's it, I gotta leave this place

I don't care what these people think

I'm just sittin' here makin' myself nauseous

With this ugly food that stinks

So you bust out the door while it's still closed

Still sick from the food you ate


And then you run to the store for quick relief

From a bottle of Kaopectate

And then you call your friend two weeks later

To see how he has been

And he says, I understand about the food

Baby Bubba, but we're still friends


With a hip hop the hippie to the hippie

The hip hip a hop, a you don't stop the rockin'

To the bang bang boogie

Say up jump the boogie to the rhythm of the boogie the beat

I say, Hank, can ya rock?

Can ya rock to the rhythm that just don't stop?

Can ya hip me to the shoobie doo?

I said, Come on, make, make the people move


I go to the balls and then ring the bell

Because I am the man with the clientele

And if ya ask me why I rock so well

A Big Bang, I got clientele

And from the time I was only six years old

I never forgot what I was told

It was the best advice I ever had

It came from my wise, dear old dad


He said, Sit down, punk, I wanna talk to you

And don't say a word until I'm through

Now there's a time to laugh, a time to cry

A time to live and a time to die

A time to break and a time to chill

To act civilized or act real ill

But whatever you do in your lifetime

You never let an MC steal your rhyme


So from six to six 'til this very day

I'll always remember what he had to say

So when the sucker MCs try to chump my style

I let them know that I'm versatile

I got style, finesse, and a little black book

That's filled with rhymes and I know you wanna look

But the thing that separates you from me

And that is called originality


Because my rhymes are on from what you heard

I didn't even bite, not a go word

And I say a little more, later on tonight

So the sucker MCs can bite all night

A tick a tock, y'all, a beat beat, y'all

A let's rock, y'all, you don't stop


Ya go, Hotel, motel, whatcha gonna do today?

(Say what?)

Ya say, I'm gonna get a fly girl, gonna get some spank

And drive off in a def OJ

Everybody go, Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn


Ya say if your girl starts actin' up, then you take her friends

A like that, y'all, to the beat, y'all

Beat beat y'all, ya don't stop!

A Master Gee, my mellow

It's on to you so whatcha gonna do?


Well, like Johnny Carson on the Late Show

A like Frankie Crocker in stereo

Well like the Barkay's singin', Holy Ghost

The sounds to throw down, they're played the most

It's like my man Captain Sky

Whose name he earned with his super sperm


We rock and we don't stop

Get off, y'all, I'm here to give you whatcha got

To the beat that it makes you freak

And come alive, girl, get on your feet

A like a Perry Mason without a case

Like Farrah Fawcett without her face

Like the Barkays on the mic


Like gettin' down right for you tonight

Like movin' your body so you don't know how

Right to the rhythm and throw down

Like comin' alive to the Master Gee

The brother who rocks so viciously

I said the age of one, my life begun

At the age of two I was doin' the do


At the age of three, it was you and me

Rockin' to the sounds of the Master Gee

At the age of four, I was on the floor

Givin' all the freaks what they bargained for

At the age of five I didn't take no jive

With the Master Gee it's all the way live


At the age of six I was a-pickin' up sticks

Rappin' to the beat, my stick was fixed

At the age of seven, I was rockin' in heaven

Don'tcha know I went off

I gotta run on down to the beat you see

Gettin' right on down, makin' all the girls


Just take off their clothes to the beat the beat

To the double beat beat that makes you freak

At the age of eight, I was really great

'Cause every night, you see, I had a date

At the age of nine, I was right on time

'Cause every night I had a party rhyme


Going on an' on an' on, on an' on

The beat don't stop until the break of dawn

A sayin' on an' on an' on, on an' on

Like a hot buttered de pop pop de popcorn
