[Brett:]I'm the mother flippin' Rhymenocerous
My beats are fat and the birds are on my back
And I'm horny
(I'm horny! )
If you choose to proceed you will indeed concede
Cos I hit you with my flow
The Wild Rhymo Stampede.
I'm not just wild,
I'm trained, domesticated
I was raised by a rapper and rhino that dated
And subsequently procreated
That's how it goes
Here's the Hiphopopotamus
The hip hop hippo

[Jermaine:]They call me the Hiphopopotamus
My lyrics are bottomless...
(Clear throat)...

[J:]They call me the Hiphopopotamus
Flows that glow like phosphorous
Poppin' off the top of this esophagus
Rockin' this metropolis
I'm not a large water-dwelling mammal
Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?
Did Steve tell you that, perchance?
Steve.

[B:]My rhymes and records they don't get played
Because my records and rhymes they don't get made
And if you rap like me you don't get paid
And if you roll like me you don't get laid.

[J:]My rhymes are so potent that in this small segment
I made all of the ladies in the area pregnant
Yes, sometimes my lyrics are sexist
But you lovely bitches and hoes should know I'm trying to correct this.

[B:]Other rappers dis me
Say my rhymes are sissy.
Why?
[J:]Why?
[J&B:]Why?
[B:]What?
[J:]Why exactly?
[B:]What? Why?
[J:]Be more constructive with your feedback, please. Why?
[B:]Why?

[B:]Why, because I rap about reality?
Like me and my grandma drinking a cup of tea?
There ain't no party like my nanna's tea party.
Hey! Ho!

[B:]I'm the motherflippin'
[J:]I'm the motherflippin'
[B:]I'm the motherflippin'
[J:]Who's the motherflippin?
[B:]I'm the motherflippin'
[J:]I'm the motherflippin'
[B:]I'm the motherflippin'
[J&B:]Motherflippin'

    They totally forgot a portion of the song! After jermaine has his first goof up with "my lyrics are bottomless... ", brett follows up with another verse. "sometimes my rhymes are polite, like thank you for dinner, that was very delicious, good night. Sometimes they may seem like a pornographic scene, nc-17 with ladies in a stream of margarine. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, yeah. Some margarine. "

    It's a modern reworking of the romulus & remus story, with bret and jemaine trying to establish their place in the ranks of feral children of mythography. Clearly jemaine is the remus figure.

    Its a deep representation of modern society and what its all really about. When writing this song, they had experiences with nature and stuff. It was deep and meaningfull. Catalyst.

    The hiphopopotamus represents the desire of brett to encourage world peace and gender equality. His epistemology is similar to his ontology in his methodology.

    Third unregistered person is amazing and believes in sherlock holmes.

    Also this song is clearly about the difficulties faced by hippos and rhinos in america.
