I used to rap and sing, makes sounds and things
And for example, here's a telephone ring...

R: Hello? Is Doug E Fresh in?
D: No, he's not in right now

D: But anyway, no more delay
Just check out the new style I display
Now ya gotta be (fresh)
To rock with (fresh)
And I'm D.O.U.G.I.E (fresh)
And I'm known for the... [fx: Doug E style beatbox]
Not for the... [fx: Fat Boys style beatbox]
The human beatbox or the entertainer
No other title could fit me plainer
In a passing generation I am a remainer
And I'm also known as the beatbox trainer
Cashin' checks, make sound FX
And after I finish rockin' Slick Rick is on next
R: Ya know it
D: Slick Rick...
R: Well, here's a little somethin' that needs to be heard
Doug, I was goin' Downtown
D: Word Rick?
R: Word
D: Sure
R: All alone, no-one to be with
Stepped on the D-train at 205th
I saw a pretty girl
D: So?
R: So I sat beside her
Then she went [fx: roar] like she was Tony the Tiger
I said, oh no, there's been a mistake
Honey, my name's Slick Rick not Frostie Flakes
D: Oh, golly wally
R: She was raisin' hell
She said, oh my name is Maggie but call me Michelle
Michelle, ma belle
Sont les mots qui vont, tres bien ensemble
Tres bien ensemble
Bust a move, we show and prove
A-yo Doug, do that record Jam on the Groove

Outro
D: As you can see, most definitely
We are (fresh)
Chill Will (fresh)
Barry be is (fresh)

And I am, the Original Human Beatbox
The Entertainer, Doug E.... (Fresh)
