whether I'm a yellow puerto rican or husayn (?)
it really doesn't matter cause it's all the same and
white boys, brown boys, blah blah blah
you give me your number, I call you up
yo, you know who you look like?

shorty said I look like Carlos Mencia
like Carlos Mencia, fuck Carlos Mencia
I said take notice, and Ma, please focus
I look like him but (?) mixed with George Lopez
shorty said I look like Mario Lopez
with no lats and no traps and no pecs
and no abs, shorty said I look like Cro-Magnon man,
that's a caveman
she told me I was racist at the rave, man.

yeah shorty said I look like the Cro-Mag too man
she said I'm half rasta, half pasta, no Ragu man
shorty said I look like Slash with no hat on
she asked if I had a spot where we could get our smash on
shorty said I look like Devendra Banhart
shorty said I look like that dude from Japan's art
you know the dude who did the Kanye album covers?
shorty said I look just like Egyptian Lover

yeah we was kickin it, I said you chillin Ma?
shorty said I look like a chubby Jake Gyllenhaal
I said this ain't Brokeback, and i'm a broke mack
type so hard and i'll type it on a broke macbook air
well girl you look here
I look real fly, and we fly high
I'm like the latino cop on CSI aye-aye

shorty said I look like the guy who did that song called La Bamba
what was his name? ay, caramba
I don't even know, shorty wanna do the rhumba
I said that was dumb though
wait, shorty said I look like Osama
plus Obama, minus the drama
shorty wanna meet my mama
shorty said I look real calm and maybe I got good karma

shorty said I look like (?)
(?) or Deepak Tijorit
maybe John Abraham or Shahrukh Khan
(?), Salman Khan
Aamir Khan, Kader Khan
Genghis Khan, no Irrfan Khan

I just wanna (?) all night long
shorty said I look like the dude from the Passion of the Christ,
Jesus Christ
shorty said I smell like beans and rice
shorty said I look like the dude from the Passion of the Christ
yeah shorty said it twice, shorty said I was nice
yeah shorty bit my ear like Mike Tys
shorty said I look like Bob Weiss
shorty said I look like (?) minus the ice
shorty said I'm nice, yeah shorty said it twice

shorty said I look like Sean Bridgmohan
I said maybe I might look like just mohan, brohan
or maybe Rohan
shorty said the ninja that she with ain't this
and shorty said I act like a gay David Banner on acid
shorty said I look like I work in a garage
shorty said I'm Turtle from Entourage
and she look like Sloan
and when we bone
shorty don't say much, yeah shorty just moan
that's cause I'm a freak yo
shorty said I look like Richard Grieco

Grieco or Greco?
shorty said I look kinda like Art Gecko
shorty said I look like the gecko from GEICO commercials
plus the caveman too, she hurt me
she hurt you too? man, she hurt a lot of fools
oh my god, she meant a lot to a lot of fools
shorty said I look like the dude who cuts her roses
she forgets his name but she supposes it was Moses
wait, Moises?
shorty asked why all the voices from those places have such strange names or faces
I told her das racist

I told her das racist, she like me cause I'm tasteless
I gave her bracelets and we hit it in her mama's basement
adjacent to it in your sister's darkroom
shorty said I look like a cartoon
like a dude throwin a harpoon at a whale and shit

    General CommentThe first line of the chorus goes, 'whether I'm a yellow puerto rican or -haitian-', not 'husayn'

    Good job though, transcribing Das Racist lyrics can be painful.

    Lyric CorrectionThe first line is "I like em brown, yellow, Puero Rican or Hatian". They are quoting A Tribe Called Quest's "Electric Relaxation". Also, they say "black boys, brown boys, blah, blah, blah", not white boys.
