You know what I'm saying?



I said, a hip hop the hippie the hippie to the hip hip hop, a you don't stop The rock it to the bang, bang boogie Say up jumped 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 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 riddle that will make your body rock

Well so far you've heard my voice But I brought two friends along And next on the Mike is my man Hank Come on, Hank, sing that song



Check it out, I'm the C A S N the O V A And the rest is F L Y Ya see I go by the code of the doctor of the mix And these reasons I'll tell ya why

Ya see I'm six foot one and I'm tons of fun And I dress to a 'T'

Ya see I got more clothes Than Muhammad Ali and I dress so viciously 

Everybody go Ho-tel, Mo-tel, 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 Ho-tel, Mo-tel, Holiday Inn, Say if your girl starts actin' up, then you take her friend.

 Wonder Mikeのパートに変わる辺りのチョイスは秀逸。まぁどちらも同じ局の看板番組ですし、クローズド・キャプションが普及しているアメリカではその単語自体の映像部分を探すのはウェブ検索と同じくらい簡単なはずですので、良く出来ているというよりも(いや、良く出来てるんですけどね)「ラップってそういう事だよね!」っていう原点を見たような気がします。
 ちなみにコレが流れた"The Tonight Show"は(個人的には第一期ジェイ・レノ世代ですが)60年も続く番組で、今月からジミー・ファロンに司会が変わった日本で言えば「徹子の部屋」に「タモリ倶楽部」のエンターテインメント性を融合させた「SmaSrtation」(時間帯っていう意味で)みたいな番組って言えばわかりやすいですかね(笑)?
