Who's that? Brooown!

Brown Elvis, I can't help it
Brown Larry Birdie on the '97 Celtics
All brown everything, better than you ever seen
Never have you ever seen anything like it
Do you like it? Oh, I think you like it
Maybe you should buy it, you should probably buy it
I swear I sell like wet sell, sell like sex sell, smell like sex smell
I swear I go like cars go, move like cargo, so retardo
Always move forward, never sleep, like a shark, bro
Always with my people like Yarborough, y'all glo

Who's that? Brooown!

Well who's that, brown, downtown like Julie
Mixed-race British chicks let me in they coochie
Like who he? Heems? Yeah, he a'ight though
Ball like Michael, life's vicious cycle
Chickety choco, the chocolate chicken
Half Choco Taco, quarter Chippewa Indian
Black-tinted Jewish Mel Gibson
Kool A.D. juice man, sounded like Simpson

Who's that? Broown!
Now what can brown do for you?
What has brown done for me lately?

Now some may, I say, call me Heems
The word is the herb and I'm deep like cream
The truth like Bruce, yes Baker and Clapton
Cruisin' down the block I'm ridin' shotty in a Magnum
Internets celebrity like Dallas Penn and Raffi
Person of color, you can't see me, copy?
Murder the beat, yes instrumental Nazi
Poppy, smoke that shit that come from poppy seeds
This is Greedhead E-N-T-E-R-T-A-I-N-M-E-N-T
MT3, MP3, so you PC or M-A-C?
Yeah, that's a Macbook

What can brown do for you?
What has brown done for me lately?
Who's that? Brooown!
What can brown do for you?
What has brown done for me lately?
Who's that? Brooown!

    My InterpretationI love this song! It's about how awesome Das Racist is! Now what can brown do for you?

    General CommentI've thought about these lyrics a lot lately, in the slightly satirical context Das Racist exists in. My hypothesis is that this is a statement about the tendency of the media to declare "ethnic" versions of certain trends to be the "ethnic" version of "______"; e.g. the "Black Elvis," or "the Mexican Spielberg," the Chinese "Frank Sinatra." It gets sort of abstract at the end though; if anyone can comment on "what can brown do for you?" that lyrics befuddles mean. Unless it's just a simple reference to UPS, in which case...

    General CommentThe song is sort of an explanation of their musical prowess, but it also plays homage to another song called "Scenario" by "A Tribe Called Quest". The title and chorus of this song actually comes from the phrase "Who's That? Brown!' which is repeatedly stated in the song "Scenario". Also the phrase "Chickety choco, the chocolate chicken" comes from the song "Scenario". Both songs are also very similar in subject matter implying that Das Racist is actually paying homage to A Tribe Called Quest with an equally awesome song.
