lyrics

BOB SAVAGE:
This Savage Shakes-Spears, you're Wordsworth nothing
I'll leave a chick screaming shes E.E. Cummings
No bluffing, I Can't Bury Tales like Chaucer
Your daughter came back for more like Ollie Twist saucer
Caught the metaphors? Man listening after 'em
Allegorical raps, Hans Christian Anderson
Literature raps for you illiterate cats
Sick like medical books, hear the ligaments snap
Oh, my life is more Orwellian
Than policeman ringing on your doorbell again
Tolkien about another Mordor hell again
Library raps not your store selling 'em
Elegant prose, you man all act funny
We're poetical pros, like Carol Ann Duffy
Some Dickensian ghosts of the past who act scummy
Scrooge with the zoots no scams to stack money
Oh yo... it's autobiographical
Getting top Marx and you know Das Kapital
Bust Atlas Shrugged rappers, dumb man n backpackers
Wack rappers, dealing with the Jack Kerouac rappers
Tryna take on more rappers
1984 rappers
No means no Julian Assange rappers
No Logo, no Naomi Klein rappers
Say Cheese 'n Die it's the RL Stine rappers
No Ayn Rand Mein Kampf rappers
No Thatcherites we strike like Minecraft rappers
War 'n Peace rappers, oughta teach rappers
3 chapters deep now you fall asleep rappers
... So fuck all the thick rappers
Choke in my Fight Club, Chuck Palahnuik rappers
Fuck your lawbooks, fuck your rulebooks, fuck your schoolbooks
Now you're all in the nick rappers
Abu Jamal, no Andy McNab rappers
Life sentencers get randy n shag rappers
Brasseye rappers, Day Today rappers
Black and white rap, no Shades of Grey rappers
Looking like Twilight, they be pale rappers
Pride and Prejudice like Daily Mail rappers
Crime and Punishment from a lot of toff rappers
Spitting like toddlers, Spot the Dog rappers
Meg and Mog rappers, it's pretend rappers
Who don't Tickle me like Mr Men rappers
...Listen then rappers, younger whippersnappers
QELD are Grimm Brothers plus some Hungry Caterpillar rappers
Take joints from a rapper, Point Horror rappers
Looking like Where's Wally, point out a rapper
...Stay annoyed at you rappers
Just mother fuckers like Freudian rappers
