Ladies and gentlemen
The most exciting stage show you've ever witnessed
Appearing live
Doug E. Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew

R: Excuse me, Doug E. Fresh?
D: Yes!
R: Have you ever seen a show with fellas on the mic
with one minute rhymes that don't come out right? They bite
D: They never write
R: That's not polite - am I lying?
D: No, you're quite right
R: Well tonight on this very mic you're about to hear
B: We swear, the best darn rappers of the year
R: So!
D: So!
R: Cheerio!
D: Yell
R: Scream
B: Bravo! Also, if you didn't know this is called The Show

R: A-yo, Doug
D: What?
R: Put your Bally's on
D: Yo, Rick, I was about to but I need a shoehorn
R: Why?
D: Because these shoes always hurt my corns
R: Six minutes, six minutes, six minutes, Doug E. Fresh, you're on
Uh uh on, uh uh on, uh uh-uh uh-uh uh uh on
Uh uh on, uh uh on, uh uh-uh uh-uh uh uh on
Oh oh oh, uh uh on

Told them the time - oh, I forgot the date

Here we go, come on
Here we go, did we miss the show?

Excuse me Doug E., excuse me Doug E.
Excuse me Doug E. Fresh, you're on
Uh uh on

D: Well it started up on 8th Avenue
When I made up the name called the
G: Get Fresh Crew!
D: It was me, my two DJ's, Chill Will and Barry B, and my right hand man, Ricky D
I used to rap and sing, makes sounds and things
And for example, here's a telephone ring
R: Hello? Is Doug E. Fresh in?
D: No, he's not in right now
D: But anyway, no more delay
Just check out the new style I display
Now you got to be (fresh)
To rock with (fresh)
And I'm D.O.U.G.I.E. (fresh)
And I'm known for the . . . [Doug E. Fresh style beatbox]
Not for the . . . [Fat Boys style beatbox]
The human beatbox or the entertainer
No other title could fit me plainer
In a passing generation I am a remainder
And I'm also known as the beatbox trainer
Cashing checks, make sound effects
And after I finish rocking Slick Rick is on next
R: Ya know it
D: Slick Rick
R: Well, here's a little something that needs to be heard
Doug, I was going downtown
D: Word, Rick?
R: Word
D: Sure
R: All alone, no one to be with
Stepped on the D-train at 205th
I saw a pretty girl
D: So?
R: So I sat beside her
Then she went [roar] like she was Tony the Tiger
I said, "Oh no, there's been a mistake
Honey, my name's Slick Rick, not Frostie Flakes"
D: Oh, golly wally
R: She was raising hell
She said, "Oh, my name is Maggie but call me Michelle"
Michelle, ma belle
Sont les mots qui vont, tres bien ensemble
Tres bien ensemble
Bust a move, we show and prove
A-yo Doug, do that record Jam on the Groove

D: As you can see, most definitely
We are (fresh)
Chill Will (fresh)
Barry B is (fresh)
Ricky D is (fresh)
And I am, the Original Human Beatbox
The Entertainer, Doug E. . . . (Fresh)
