Big Daddy Kane

<Staple Singers: oh! Big Daddy!>

Hear ye, hear ye, from far and near

The one they call the Big Daddy Kane is here

To deliver a message to everyone everywhere

So listen up party people cause this you should hear

It's a story of a far-away atmosphere

That you will find very rare and far beyond compare

All is sincere and rather debonair

So let's all gather around, because...

<Hmm...yeah...I'll take you there...oh!> (x4)

Off to a place you thought was unreal

Where people of the world do know how to chill

Everything remains cool and calm where you are

And if you ask about crime, they all'll say, <Hah?!>

They wouldn't even know what you mean

Cause it's a different program, y'all know the routine

Where people work hard for a decent buck

And you can wear truck jewelry without being stuck

Never wondering whether your house is all right

So go leave your VCR on the porch overnight

And as for the people they all stand proud

Senior citizens party with the hip-hop crowd

You can hang at a jam till the break of dawn

And leave without your Bally shoes getting stepped on

Everyone walks around in their right mind and all

Because crack ain't nothing but a hole in the wall

So those who wish to live with glare and flair

There's a place that this can be done, and yo...

<Hmm...yeah...I'll take you there...oh!> (x4)

What I discovered may just only seem

As something that you find in your wildest dream

But! on the real tip, you will see

I'm not playing, what I'm saying is reality

There is a place people live with joy

That the next man cannot come along and destroy

No one faces problems, no one says sorry

And war ain't nothing but a game on Atari

This message also applies to other nations

Like Africa for instance, where there's starvation

But if you come with me, you're sure to see

Ethiopians can eat in Red Lobster for free

And people that you saw before that were poor

Will never ever see the situation no more

Cause in this world everyone's a millionaire

<Is there WIC?>

Are you sick?

And what the hell is welfare?

Fashions are smashing for all to flaunt

And we can get anything that we want

So don't think you can't afford expensive design

Because fresh Gucci wear is only $5.99

So come ye all and attend this affair

As we journey to the promised land, and...

<Hmm...yeah...I'll take you there...oh!> (x3)

Since I'm the type of guy that laughs and jokes

This may sound funny, but seriously folks

It's a shame that people today must live

In a world that's operating oh so negative

But I found a place designed especially for you

Where peace and harmony is everyone's culture

So let's all gather around before this world corrupts

And we don't even need Scotty to beam us up


<Hmm...yeah...I'll take you there...oh!> (x4)

<Big Daddy! Oh...hmm!> (x9)

<I'll take you there...all right> (x4)
