Anyhoo, this little ditty was born out of a email that one Jeff Scronce sent around to me and a coupla pals. Jeff linked us to this site, featuring a guy rapping about the Federal Emergency Management Agency. It was amazingly stupid and funny. Ethan Kaye then responded by saying
Well, for some reason I found that inspiring, so in the next fifteen minutes or so I wrote the following lyrics:Sounds like that old-school 80's hip-hop. "My name is XXXXX
and I'd like to say..."
Problem is, when I got home, I was still thinking about the stupid thing. Aaaaaaand I ended up recording it.My name is *FEMA*, and I'd like to say,
I can rap about disasters in a *MILLION* ways!
Hurricanes, tornados, and a big ol' flood,
Fema gonna be there in yo' neighborhood!
Dolin' out cash for b-boys and b-girls
Helpin' y'all while the turntable twirls
The F is for "Fresh", 'cause we're cool like dat,
The E is for "Excitin'", 'cause we're the hot cats,
The M is for "Da Most", most from coast to coast,
And the A is for "Awesome" like butter on toast!
Wave your hands in the air, 'cause you know we really care!
The roof! The roof! The roof has been repaired!
And here it is! The cool thing about Box.net is you can either download it or play it right in the browser! (You can also get the file here.)
