Lyrics

I know this story is a week old, but I just will never be able to accomplish the turnaround times of some of the other jinglers. I usually don't even have time to listen to the podcast from the show until after the jingle about the story has already aired the next day. Anyway, I think I mostly just do this for the three people that will actually listen to a rap parody and maybe take the 30 seconds to provide a congenial comment.

A parody of Kanye West's "Gold Digger."


Now I won’t say you’re gullible mister
But now she’s got you buying gold bridges
Now I won’t say you’re gullible mister
But now she’s got you buying gold bridges
Give up dude, come on, give up
Give up dude, come on, give up
Give up dude, come on, give up
Give up dude, come on

Feeling defeat, it happened and I couldn’t believe
My Michelle just broke up with me now I’m trying to grieve
She said “I can tell it’s hard, it wasn’t you it was me”
So I find a psychic and she says that a diamond ring
Is what she needs to protect her energy so I paid her
I tell her ‘bout my ex, “I’d pay anything to date her!”
Maybe, you’d say I’m a whale, call her Ishmael
But a fake funeral? I don’t see how that will fail
We need a time machine? Let’s H.G. Wells the thing
30k is what you need? I am in marketing
I think that I can swing that much to get a watch
Wait, now you say the time travel was botched?
That’s okay, cause Michelle kicked the bucket
My psychic said we’ll reincarnate another
But this new woman doesn’t even act like the other
If my psychic’s always wrong, does that mean I can’t trust her?

Now I won’t say you’re gullible mister
But now she’s got you buying gold bridges
Now I won’t say you’re gullible mister
But now she’s got you buying gold bridges
Give up dude, come on, give up
Give up dude, come on, give up
Give up dude, come on, give up
Give up dude, come on

By the way, rob, the inspiration hit while I was running and a different Kanye song (Through the Wire) came on my headphones. EPMD didn't even cross my mind at the time but that would have totally worked too.

2/3 so far! judofuse your Kanye song was great. Didn't realize there were so many unaired gems here until somewhat recently. I'm down for anything. I think we could possibly pull of turning a two-person rap into three parts too.

I love it dude. "Gullible mister" is perfect for that rhyme. (Proud to be the other Kanye song on the site with this one.) I'm totally in for more hip-hop stuff - De La Soul is cool.

i guess i'm one of those three, and in fact i thought this was EPMD before i jumped inside to see it was Kanye, which is weird because i was listening to You Gots To Chill driving around on sunday and wondering what other groups go three ways on the mic besides the Beastie Boys for you Jason and I to maybe work on another track at some point. De La Soul was all I came up with. but this is your game on here. nobody does or CAN do this genre better than you, and your writing is always good.
