My Party Piece
Jeez louise I have to thank Jedward and X Factor's George Michael/Wham! week for reminding me of when I used to sing the Wham Rap at school (I randomly remember standing on a desk), I even auditioned for Fiddler on the Roof with the Wham Rap and got called back for the principal cast. Really rather morto! but I'm actually proud of what a deluded yet rather confident 13 year old I was. I might sing/rap/shout this at singing class for a laugh next week to break up everyone else's Mariah Carey and Westlife renditions but I won't be jumping on any tables! Try and sing/ rap/ shout the below or just think of me in my wine uniform and odd socks...
Hey everybody take a look at me,
I've got street credibility,
I may not have a job,
But I have a good time,
With the boys that I meet "down on the line"
I DON'T NEED YOU
So you don't approve,
Well, who asked you to?
HEY, JERK YOU WORK
This guy's got better things to do
I ain't never gonna work, get down in the dirt
I choose, to cruise
I'm a soul boy - I'm a dole boy -
Take pleasure in leisure, I believe in joy!
JOB OR NO JOB
YOU CAN'T TELL ME THAT I'M NOT
ENJOY WHAT YOU DO?
One, two, three, rap!
C'mon everybody, DON'T NEED THIS CRAP!
IF YOU'RE A PUB MAN
OR A CLUB MAN
MAYBE A JET BLACK GUY WITH A HIP HI-FI
A WHITE COOL CAT WITH A TRILBY HAT
MAYBE LEATHER AND STUDS IS WHERE YOU'RE AT
MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY DAY
DON'T LET HARD TIMES STAND IN YOUR WAY
GIVE A WHAM GIVE A BAM BUT DON'T GIVE A DAMN
'COS THE BENEFIT GANG ARE GONNA PAY!
Now reach up high and touch your soul
The boys from Wham! will help you reach that goal
It's gonna break your mama's heart (so sad)
It's gonna break your daddy's heart (too bad)
Just throw the dice and take my advice
'Cos I know that you're smart
Can you dig this thing? (YEAH!)
Are you gonna get down? (YEAH!)
Say Wham! WHAM!
Say Bam! BAM!
Do you wanna work
Are you gonna have fun
Do you wanna be a jerk
Are you gonna stay young
Everybody say WHAM!
Everybody say WHAM!
Say WHAM! BAM!
