Now Peter Piper picked some peppers
And Jesus may have healed the lepers
But only Beck knows where it’s at
With two turn tables and Abe Lincoln’s hat
“Dirty rat”
Living in the abandoned hotel
The kid’s bringing in the brain for show and tell.
Trippin’ off the last puff
He plays too rough
With the cheap stuff
Smoking out in the wind and the rain
Underneath the billboard of T-Pain.
TV’s asking “Where Are You Scooby Doo?”
But he’s helping Napoleon at Waterloo,
Saving all his money in a high heeled shoe
Stealing Christmas from Cindy Lou Who.
Put on your gloves so you can box the kangaroo
No one’s out there but the Radley named Boo
And he says he’s going to make it flow
Teenage ho
Don’t go slow
Make it grow
Whoa!
GI Joe
Pissing in the black snow
Wishing he was back in the last row
But you can’t go back, cuz you got no home
All burned down like a pitchfork and a garden gnome.
The government helped make sure those Twin Towers fell,
 God rested on the day the devil snuck outta hell
Crackheads wondering , “just what in the world is that smell?”
And the porcelain turtle has got a crack on it’s shell.
Don’t talk to Captain Kirk while he’s yelling at Kahn
Or he’ll make sure your space suit isn’t turned on
“It happened so fast I wasn’t sure what I’d seen,”
Dr. Khalifa thinks this whole world’s going Nineteen.
Know what I mean?
