"Wordy Rappinghood" as written by Tina Weymouth, Christopher Frantz, Laura Elizabeth Weymouth, Lani C. Weymouth and Steven J.c. Stanley....
What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words

Words in papers, words in books
Words on TV, words for crooks
Words of comfort, words of peace
Words to make the fighting cease
Words to tell you what to do
Words are working hard for you
Eat your words but don't go hungry
Words have always nearly hung me

Ram sam sam, a ram sam sam
Guli guli guli guli guli ram sam sam
Haykayay yipi yaykayé
Ahou ahou a nikichi

What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words

Words of nuance, words of skill
And words of romance are a thrill
Words are stupid, words are fun
Words can put you on the run

Mots pressé, Mots sensé
Mots qui disent la verité
Mots maudits, mots mentis
Mots qui manquent le fruit d'esprit

Ram sam sam, a ram sam sam
Guli guli guli guli guli ram sam sam
Haykayay yipi yaykayé
Ahou ahou a nikichi

What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words

It's a rap race, with a fast pace
Concrete words, abstract words
Crazy words and lying words
Hazy words and dying words
Words of faith and tell me straight
Rare words and swear words
Good words and bad words

Ram sam sam, a ram sam sam
Guli guli guli guli guli ram sam sam
Haykayay yipi yaykayé
Ahou ahou a nikichi

What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words

Ram sam sam, a ram sam sam
Guli guli guli guli guli ram sam sam
Haykayay yipi yaykayé
Ahou ahou a nikichi

What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words

Words can make you pay and pay
Four-letter words I cannot say
Panty, toilet, dirty devil
Words are trouble, words are subtle
Words of anger, words of hate
Words over here, words out there
In the air and everywhere
Words of wisdom, words of strife
Words that write the book I like
Words won't find no right solution
To the planet earth's pollution
Say the right word, make a million
Words are like a certain person
Who can't say what they mean
Don't mean what they say
With a rap rap here and a rap rap there
Here a rap, there a rap
Everywhere a rap rap

Rap it up for the common good
Let us enlist the neighbourhood
It's okay, I've overstood
This is a wordy rappinghood, okay, bye

Ram sam sam, a ram sam sam
Guli guli guli guli guli ram sam sam
Haykayay yipi yaykayé
Ahou ahou a nikichi

What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words

What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words

What are words worth?
What are words worth? Words

He don't stop, he don't stop
He don't stop and he don't stop
He don't stop, he don't stop
He don't stop and he don't stop
He don't stop, he don't stop
He don't stop and he don't stop
He don't stop, he don't stop
He don't stop and he don't stop
He don't stop, he don't stop
He don't stop and he don't stop
He don't stop, he don't stop
He don't stop and he don't stop
He don't stop, he don't stop
He don't stop and he don't stop
He don't stop

    General CommentIs this song just a catchy-but-silly throwaway? Or does it, perhaps, describe the Human condition down to its very core?

    Words are like a certain person
    Who can't say what they mean
    Don't mean what they say

    My vote is for the core thing. Nothing less than transcendental!

    General Commentthis is a very loopy song, which is great fer me, cause i've been so loopy of late. anyway, the part "It's okay, I've overslept" sounds an awefull bit more like "i've overstood" i know that's all weird, but that what it sounds like to me!
    later!

    My InterpretationI always thought that the lyric:

    "Words are like a certain person
    Who can't say what they mean
    Don't mean what they say"

    was them having a jab at David Byrne.
