I Luv Rap Music

from the album "Sacred Cows: The Songs That Helped Us"

Originally Performed by DC Talk

Some people out there givin' rap a bad name
But as the young people say, I ain't down with that

Rap music, the sound of the times
Ya sorta talk lyrics to rhythm and rhyme
And then deliver in the various ways
You know, some sorta preachin', and some sorta play
Nevertheless, there's some common ground
Ya know the def hip hop sound
Hyped up bass and the tiny snare
The subwoofer makes your neighbor stare
Hey but

I luv rap music
I always have, and I always will

Now rap started as the voice of the street
A sorta politics to a ghetto beat
Then rappers started braggin' all about their gold
And the girlies, and the beepers
And the big, black Olds-mobile
In '83, the beatbox hit
Makin' funky drum sounds from out ya lips
But takin' on nu forms, rap has moved from the block
Now some mix it with soul and some mix it with rock
I don't care how ya do it, 'cos..

I luv rap music
I always have, and I always will
There's no other kinda music in all the world
That can make me feel quite as chill Brrrrr!
I luv rap music
Ya know, it's sittin' on the top of my list
So if ya wanna hang with me, ya better believe
You'll be jammin' to a hip hop mix

Concert time in my part of the town
Ya know, I brought my mom cause she was... well she was feelin' down
She was flat groovin', but couldn't understand
How they makin' music when there ain't no band
And then she said "James!" everybody stared
She heard a James Brown sample "Ow!" and thought he was there
She got home, shook her head and said,
"Kids these years"
But then again, we think the Beatles are weird
Those loony mop tops...

I luv rap music
I always have, and I always will
There's no other kinda music in all the world
That can make me feel quite as chill Brrrrr!
I luv rap music
Ya know, it's sittin' on the top of my list
So if ya wanna hang with me, well ya better believe
You'll be jammin' to a hip hop mix

Is it just me or are we all gettin' crazy here?

I luv rap music
Ohhh... that feels good!

Today some rappers boast, some are makin' me ill blah!
And those obscene lyrics you gotta agree are overkill
But I started M.C.'in way back in the day
And since then there's been a serious change
Ya know, I asked the Lord to come into my heart
And He gave me a brand new start
And on top a dat, He gave me my dreams
Doin' hip hop music with a Christian theme
Ya know

I luv rap music
I always have, and I always will
There's no other kinda music in all the world
That can make me feel quite as chill

(Improvise yourself silly. Have fun with it. Make the song your own.)
