Micky's First Rap Song

Rap On Bro!

You know I like the Rhymes.

It’s a sign of all the times.

When the rappers take the stages

It goes back through all the ages

Rapping’s cause for celebration

It’s not “Just My Imagination”

“I Aint Too Proud To Beg”

I long for my Temptations

“How I wish it would Rain”

Won’t cause nobody no pain

You know they rocked my world

Every time they sang “My Girl”

My “Papa Was A Rolling Stone”

Though that might be true

If your sound isn’t smooth

“I Can’t Get Next To You”

Spinners

The Spinners were winners

The O’Jays found the ways

Show me the Corsair faces

Let’s meet in “Smoky Places”

Let’s talk about Smoky and the Miracles

While we try get a bit lyrical

Please give me your ears

And let’s hear the Danleers

“One Summer Night”

Can make it just right.

Hey how about “Hey Paula”

It’s done by Paul and Paula

It’s hard to decide which ones are the best

How about “Sixteen Candles” with the Crests

I even like “Bread and Butter”

I like toast and jam

The New Beats are great

“But she’s eatin’ with another man”.

Platters

Send me some “Platters”

When nothing else matters

It’s not a big surprise

That “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”

Drifters

My girlfrend’s heavy and I can’t lift her

But I love her because she’s stuck on the Drifters.

“There Goes My Baby”

Will she “Save The Last Dance For Me”

Maybe she and I can just talk

Is she “Up On The Roof” or “Under The Boardwalk”

Eddie Floyd

Eddie Floyd  makes it all good

When he tears up “Knock On Wood”

Otis Redding

“I’ve Been Loving You Too Long”

“Sittin’ On the Dock Of  The Bay”

And I might “Try A Little Tenderness”

As Otis Redding comes our way

Fats Domino

I don’t know where to go

As “I’m Walkin” with Fats Domino

“You broke my heart

When you said we’d part”

“Ain’t That A Shame”

Maybe I’m to blame

Four Tops

Be aware, but don’t get me wrong

“I Can’t Help Myself” “It’s The Same Old Song”

"Sugar Pie Honey Bunch"

It’s because I really do care

I said “I Need Your Loving”

“Reach Out I’ll Be There”

When the Four Tops came my way

They had a song for every day

Percy Sledge

What memories I can dredge

Just listening to Percy Sledge

“When A Man Loves A Woman” it’s easy to see

How nice it can be if you “Stand By Me”

Who in the world can complain

When Aretha sings “Chain, Chain, Chain”

Did Gladys Knight make Stevie Wonder

Did Diana Ross make Marvin Gaye

You know the Supremes

Filled my nightly dreams

And what can one say

About my Brother Ray

James Brown

“Please, Please, Please” “I Feel Good”

With the King of Soul, James Brown

In a “Man’s Man’s Man’s World”

And he’s world renowned

I forgot so many as I’m getting old

Like Wilson Picket who was solid gold.

I drove my “Mustang Salley” In the “Midnight Hour”

Down “Funky Broadway” with my favorite flower.

Elton John

All of these artists I can call upon

Even a little Elton John

Cause “That’s Where We Meet

At The Club At The End Of The Street”

So the next time you’re smokin’ chronic

Put on a little Delphonics

When you’re having some music sessions

Get the right “Impressions”

Doo-wop, gospel, soul, and a little R&B

Can fill an empty hole and do it all for me

I hope I don’t sound rash,

But there’s no need to shake my dash

And make me say Dear God

I wish he’d get an IPod

Please stick it in his ear

So the rest of us can hear

Turn down that stereo

Quit using that word Ho!

Your message may be true

And I ain’t dissin’ you

But while I’m busy chillin’

I don’t want to hear about no killin’

There ain’t no need to spread

Everything that's in your head

Let’s treat each other right

As we listen to Rufus Wainwright

Let’s be kind to one another

Cause “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”

Peace out!

Excellent! I'm getting so spoiled that I expect perfection from you and get it!!

Every time I read the song, I could hear it playing. This needs to be performed that way at the Grammy's. You need an agent.

Kick'n it ole skool!!! Gone are the days of songs of love, peace and happiness. We now suffer the vocal strains of hate and disrespect, visuals that are no more than soft porn. Gone is the dance music that made you just want to have fun, not kill somebody. Excellent hub my friend.

You're right Pmccray. I miss the sounds of the Temptations the most. There was so much sweet music and that soft fuzzy sound! Thank you Ma'am!

I had not seen this before and I love it - I always think rapping is poetry and since my son writes some and I've dabbled in a few poems - have to love it. Plus the artists - sigh - classic!

I will continue to litsen to His voice and not be distraught by the negativity that triesto creep in. Continue praying and asking for the guidance of the Holy Spirit and to useme as a servant.When I feel tired, I rest but quoting Lord give me strength and forgiveme for my sin for I am weak but you make me strong .
