Harlem World Crew – Rappers Convention lyrics

(Feat. Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde)

[Dr. Jeckyll]
Good evening everybody, yes, I'm glad you're here
To all the people in the front and the people in the rear
Well, you're gonna have fun, did you expect to see
The number one master of the ceremony?
Don't care if you [?]
Don't care if you're 10, 20 years old
But when you hear this record you have a smile on your face
Cause we're the men that's gonna rock the place
We're like a peel of a lemon, juice of a lime
The same Bat channel, the same Bat time
Like the cold, cold ice that'll make you slip
I dibby-dibby-dive and I dive and I dip
Like the green for go, the red for stop
First we rock the hip and then we rock the hop
Like that merry-go-round or the rollercoaster ride
You listened to Jeckyll, now here is Hyde

[Mr. Hyde]
Now Carter's winnin the race right now, and Kennedy's not far behind
But they run into a new problem for the very first time
It seems Iran's holdin 50 people and will not let them go
They want the Shah in return, but Carter's sayin no
So they raised the price on gasoline for the American car
And while Khomeini's busy takin a nap the Shah goes to Panama
You see, he's a slick old man,
Can't ya understand, he's got too much money to die
He's makin Ayatollah Khomeini so mad the old man want to cry
Yes, we been easy on Iran and we love to retaliate
But we love to pick from the fruit of love and not
Bite from the apple of hate
But we Americans gettin sick and tired of this political gong show
So we're sendin our message over to Iran: Let our people go
Now we been pushed around a lot but we're not afraid of war
And Iran, your little cat and mouse game has really become a bore
So we're tellin this to you nice and slow, so you can understand
I walked, he walked, I jogged, he jogged, Iran, Iran, Iran, Iran

[Mr. Hyde]
Well, we are known from home to home
[Dr. Jeckyll]
And we're known around the world
[Mr. Hyde]
Yeah, we're known to fight the fellas
[Dr. Jeckyll]
And we're known to love the girls
So we hang out all night till broad daylight
[Mr. Hyde]
So we're known for sleepin late
[Both]
But when it's 9 o'clock and we begin to rock
[Dr. Jeckyll]
We're known to be the great
[Mr. Hyde]
So to the girls on the left
[Dr. Jeckyll]
The girls on the right
[Both]
To the girls right over there
[Dr. Jeckyll]
You just remember one thing when you hear us sing
[Mr. Hyde]
That we've got your love affair
And we want you to know that we're ready to go
[Dr. Jeckyll]
And we're set for a little romance
And when we rock the microphone can't leave us alone
[Both]
Cause we'll put you in a trance
[Mr. Hyde]
He's the J-e-c-k-y-double l
[Dr. Jeckyll]
And he's the H-y-d-e
[Mr. Hyde]
Better now we got show and tell
[Dr. Jeckyll]
We got clientele
[Both]
And originality
[Mr. Hyde]
So come on y'all let's have a ball
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Let's all have some fun
Baby doll, just remember one thing when you hear us sing
[Both]
That you've got the number one
[Mr. Hyde]
Well I think it's time for Dr. Jeckyll to rock
So come Doc, it's your turn to rock

[Dr. Jeckyll]
I got a Ph. D. And a doctor's degree and I've studied around the world
Baby doll, but one thing I've read and I've always
Said, that I can only examine the girls
So when the [?] comes and you catch a cold and you come down with the flu
You just have no fear, my lovely dear, cause Dr. Jeckyll knows what to do
I pick ya up and I fix ya up, I put you right back on your feet
So when Friday night rolls around again you be rockin to the beat
So if you want the best cure in the nation, look me up in my new location
I got a brand-new spot on 116th, it's called Harlem World
Where the dj's rock and the fellas get loose and the
Girls let down their curls
So just take a walk down the corridor and you will not miss my door
Cause I am the good doc, just like Betty Crocker they
Always come back for more
So when you look around for my office door you see
My name in big golden speckles
Says Chief Of Service In Charge Of Staff, the incredible Dr. Jeckyll
So when you come to my office you walk through the
Door, please remember to close the gate
Baby doll, cause when you come to see Dr. Jeckyll, get ready to operate
So go on, go on, go on, go on, aw, hey, go on
You just work the body, work, work the body
Baby, rock that body, freak, freak the body
If you could stop you would stop
But since you can't stop you don't stop
[Both]
So you don't stop the body rock
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Females
[Mr. Hyde]
Don't stop that body rock
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Fly guys
[Mr. Hyde]
Don't stop the body rock
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Everybody
[Mr. Hyde]
Don't stop that body rock
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Cause I'm mean, I'm keen, baby, always good
I do my thing [?] neighborhood
I'm just standin here, I'm chillin, I'm doin my thing
Cause I'm well off like the Burger King
But I don't peddle burgers or sell french fries
I'm just here, baby doll, to make your nature rise
Go 1, 2, 3, 4, Mr. Hyde, what you're waitin for?

[Mr. Hyde]
For those of you who don't know me well, hello, it's Mr. Hyde
I rock so hard, don't need credit cards, cause I'm known nationwide
I got a Cadillac Seville, two 89's and even a Rolls Royce
I got money in the bank, the girls in check and I got a vicious voice
[Both]
Now when we feel what we feel
[Mr. Hyde]
It's hard for us to tell you so
Cause you may not be in the mood, girl, you just may not want to go
[Both]
But when you feel what you feel
[Mr. Hyde]
You wanna keep yourself for me
Cause you may have a boyfriend that you don't want me to see
Now a lot of girls say it's a waste of time
[Both]
Tryin to get Jeckyll and Hyde
[Mr. Hyde]
But if you keep us happy, girl
[Both]
We'll keep you satisfied
[Mr. Hyde]
And it won't matter to us, girl, what your friend might say
Cause if you [?]
[Both]
We'll give your friend the play
[Mr. Hyde]
Now every day that passes by, every night I spend with you
You could teach me how to punk rock
[Both]
And we'll show you how to Patty Duke
[Mr. Hyde]
And he may say sweet things and promise you security
But can he rock the microphone like Dr. Jeckyll and me?

[Dr. Jeckyll]
Well, before we go we just want you to know
[Mr. Hyde]
Better who you been listenin to
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Check it out now, baby, baby doll, while I tell you, hah
[Mr. Hyde]
Who we are and what we do
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Well I am Dr. Jeckyll
[Mr. Hyde]
You know what girls, I am Mr. Hyde
We stay up all night till the broad daylight
[Both]
Just makin our vicious rhymes
[Mr. Hyde]
We're two fly, fly guys and if you give us a try
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Girls, you'll be satisfied
Cause on the license plates of our 89
[Both]
It says "Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde"
[Dr. Jeckyll]
So a lot of people often wonder why we're the number one
[Mr. Hyde]
Is while the other mc's try their best to please
[Both]
While we're just havin fun
[Dr. Jeckyll]
So go up, down, round and round and then you slip and slide
[Mr. Hyde]
And just remember one thing when you hear us sing,
You are rockin with Jeckyll & Hyde
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Females you are rockin with Jeckyll & Hyde
[Both]
Fly guys you are rockin with Jeckyll & Hyde
[Dr. Jeckyll]
Everybody
[Both]
You are rockin with Jeckyll & Hyde
So turn the record to the flipside
