Run-d.m.c. – Peter Piper lyrics

Now Peter Piper picked peppers but Run rocked rhymes.
Humpty Dumpty fell down that's his hard time.
Jack B. Nimble was nimble and he was quick
But Jam Master was faster Jack saw Jay's dick.
Now little Bo Peep cold lost her sheep
And Rip van Winkle fell the hell asleep.
And Alice chillin somewhere in Wonderland
Jack servin' Jill, bucket in his hand.
And Jam Master Jay is making out our sound
The turntables might wobble but they don't fall down.

Now Doctor Seuss and Mother Goose both did their thing.
But Jam Master's gettin' loose and DMC's the king.
Cause he's adult entertainer, child educator,
Jam Master Jay, king of the crossfader.
He's the better of the best, best believe he's the baddest.
Perfect timin' when I'm climbin', I'm rhymin' apparatus
Lot of guts, when he cuts, girls move their butts.
His name is Jay, hear the play, he must be nuts.
And on the mix, real quick, and I'd like to say
He's not Flash but he's fast and his name is Jay!

It goes a one, two, three and...

Jay's like King Midas, as I was told,
Everything that he touched, turned to gold.
He's the greatest of the great, get it straight he's great.
Playing fame cause his name is known in every state.
His name is Jay to see him play will make you say:
"Goddamn, that DJ made my day!"
Like the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,
He's a maker, a breaker, and a title taker.
Like the little old lady who lived in a shoe.
If cuts were kids he would be through
Not lying, y'all, he's the best I know,
And if I lie, my nose will grow
Like the little wooden boy named Pinochio,
And you all know how the story goes!

Trix are for kids he plays much gigs.
He's the big bad wolf and you're the three pigs.
He's the big bad wolf in your neighbourhood,
Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good!

There it is...

Well Run-Dmc, got a beef to settle.
D's not Hansel, he's not Gretel.
Jay's a winner, not a beginner.
His pocket gets fat, others get thinner.
Jump on Jay like cow jumps moon,
People chase Jay like dish and spoon.
And like all fairytales end
You'll see Jay again my friend!
