Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenosorus lyrics(from HBO show)

Postby The_Elefunk » Fri Jul 06, 2007 12:40 am

I noticed that the lyrics are a bit different from the show than from the stage. So here I go. I hope they're right:

BRET: I'm the mother-flippin' Rhymenosorus. My beats are phat and I have birds on my back and I'm horny, I'm
BOTH: HORNY!
BRET: If you choose to proceed, you will indeed concede, 'cause i hit you with my flow, the wild, rhino stampede.
I'm not just wild, I'm trained, domesticated, I was raised by a rapper and writer-they dated, and subsequently procreated, that's how it goes, here's the Hiphopopotamus, the hip hop hippo
JEMAINE: They call me the Hiphopopotamus, my lyrics are bottomless...(clears throat)
JEMAINE: They call me the Hiphopopotamus, flows, they glow like phospherus, popping of the top of this esophagus, rocking thIS metropolis. I'm not a large water dwelling mammal. Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis. Did Steve tell you that perchance?...Steve...
BRET: My rhymes and records, they don't get played, because my records and rhymes, they don't get made, and if you rap like me you don't get paid and if you roll like me you don't get laid
JEMAINE: My rhymes are so potent that in this small segment, I made all of the ladies in the area pregnant. Yeah, sometimes, my lyrics are sexist but you lovely bitches should know that I'm trying to correct this.
BRET: Other rappers diss me. Say my rhymes are sissy
BOTH: Why? Why? What...why?
JEMAIME: Why exactly? Be more constructive with your feedback. Please. Why?
BRET: Why, 'cause I rap about reality like me and my grandma drinkin a cup of tea. There ain't no party like my nana's tea party. Hey! Ho!
BRET: I'm the mother-flippin.
JEMAINE:I'm the mother-flippin.
BRET: I'm the mother-flippin.
JEMAINE: Who's the mother-flippin?
BRET: I'm the mother-flippin.
JEMAINE:I'm the mother-flippin.
BRET: I'm the mother-flippin.
BOTH: Mother-flippin.

Wow. That was long.
You'll notice a lot the lyrics are different from the stage show.

Here is the Stage Version I wrote down for comparison:

I wrote this directly from the HBO version, so it's pretty dang accurate if I say so myself. NOTE: The What, What, Why part is not as precise as this and goes on for a bit longer. Also in that part, throw in a couple of "Yeahs" every once in a while.

"Hipopopotamus Vs. Rhymenocerus"


Key
R: Rhymenocerus
H: Hipopopotamus

R: They call me the, Rhymenocerus not because I'm fat, not 'cause I got birds on my back but because I'm horny, (w/ H) I'm Horny! When I'm on the mic I'm like global warming you can't ignore me, in bedroom, I'm the gentleman the ladies come before me, check your Yellowpages I'm the richest Rhymenocologist now I'm passing over the mic to the, Hipopopotamus!

H: Yeah they call me the Hipopopotamus, my lyrics are bottomless....

R: Sometimes, my rhymes are polite like, "Thank you Mrs. Johnson for dinner that was delicious, goodnight." And other times they are obscene like a pornographic R 18 dream, about bitches smothered in margarine, haa haa haa haa, haa, pckew pckew pckew...

H: They call me the Hipopopotamus, I got flows that glow like phosphorous, popping off of the top of this esophagus, I'm not a water-dwelling mammal from Africa that has moved to the metropolis that's been taught how to break dance, where did you get that preposterous, hypothesis, did Steve tell you that? What's he got to do with it? What kind of rapping name is Steve? Steve...

R: Other rappers (w/ H) Dis Me, say my rhymes are (w/ H) Sissy..

R: What?
H: What
R: Why?
H: What?
R: What?
H: Why?
R: Why exactly?
H: Why?
R: What?
H: Be more constructive with your feed back. Why?
R: What?
H: What?
R: Why?
H: What?
R: Why?

R: What because I rap about reality? Like, Me and my Grandma having a, cup of tea.

TOGETHER: There ain't no party like my Nana's tea party, Hey! Ho!

(Suggested Freestyle)

R: Freestyle! Hipopopotamus! Freestyle, Hipopopotamus Style!

H: I'm Freestylin'! Just saying what comes into the top of my head! Like it's just, R-Random! R-R-Random! Umm, Oooooh! Ooooh! There's a picture of New York! There's a picture of New York! There's a big, fat, crazy picture of New York! I'm just free- New York! Fre-Freestyling this- Picture of New York! Freestyling! Sometimes When I freestyle, I loose confidence....

(End Freestyle)

H: My rhymes are so potent there in this small segment, I made all of the ladies in the first two rows pregnant. Yeah that's right sometimes my lyrics are sexist, but you lovely bitches should know that I'm trying to correct this...

R: When I say "Oooh" all the ladies go "Ahh", "Oooh" ("Ahh"), "Oooh" ("Ahh"), When I say "Oooh" all the fellows go "Arf Arf", "Oooh", ("Arf Arf"), "Oooh", ("Arf Arf"), but keep it really sexy fella's, (Repeat Ooohs and Arf Arf's) That's my dawgs.... When I say "Oooh" all the ladies got "Oooh, Flight of the Conchords, You're so Big!", "Oooh", (People trying to say their line)... Ooh, Wow. Thank You, Wow.

H: Thank you ladies. You didn't have to say that...
