Da Boogie Down

Mi Blog's still on an ever-so-long break from its interactive glory, but in da meantime an' in between time, here's some special 'K' for your listenin' pleasure!

KRS-One: False Pride (from Da Sneak Attack album)

Kris' Intro: Okay now, listen to this:

A Mystical Teacher sat by the seaside
It was about 5 o'clock cause we heard the free ride
Anyway, The Teacher was talking in stride
Sitting upon a rock that was quite wide
And warning against false pride
"Come to where I reside!" a woman cried
And The Teacher replied, "Do you serve your fish fried?"
"Yes," she replied, "with potato salad on the side."
And The Teacher would comply, so, "Where do you reside?"
She said, "Up on the hillside, it's not a far ride.
If you came to have dinner, I would be so gratified."
The Teacher replied, " It's six o'clock or seven o'clock, you decide."
She replied, "Seven o'clock, do you like stir-fried?"

She was mystified and felt so dignified
The Teacher was coming to the house where she resides
So she purified with pesticides
Called up her friends nationwide
Some of her friends were tongue-tied; they felt so glorified

She made steamed fish, baked fish, fish that was fried
Soup, steamed vegetables, potato salad on the side
You could smell the bread in the oven, far and wide
Natural juices and water purified
Organic fruits brought from the countryside
With silver forks and knives placed side by side
You could not be dissatisfied
Looking out the window staring at the mountainside
You would have died

At 6:59 she's swollen with pride
As the moment intensified,
There was a knock from outside
She opened the door, "The Teacher has arrived!"
But to her surprise, it was a bum who cried
"Please, I smelled the bread from outside!
One piece, please" and then she replied
"The Teacher is coming, He's soon to have arrived.
You're making me look bad, come on now, step aside!"
The bum then replied,"When I say I'm hungry I haven't lied.
Give me some of that chicken you just fried."
She replied, "Chicken? Fried?
No! That's for The Teacher, you're not purified"
Then she slammed the door and went back inside
She sat on the couch with the TV Guide.

She looked at the clock, it was 7:09,
then 7:30; He still hasn't arrived
Eight o'clock, she's on the downside
Nine o'clock, by now she's teary-eyed
She's pissed off and her anger multiplied
She cried, then fell asleep dissatisfied

Next day she woke up, and was preoccupied
With meeting The Mystical Teacher who lied
Where could He hide?
She ran down by the seaside
He was there teaching about false pride

"You lied!" she decried, "You lied!
You said you'd be there at seven o'clock, but you lied!"
He replied, "No I have not lied. I came at 6:59,
And you told me to move aside.
I asked for bread and the chicken that was fried
And you said that I wasn't purified."
Stupefied, she replied, "I wasn't notified!
I had no idea that you wuz da bum that cried!"
And The Teacher sighed, then He replied,
"This concludes our lesson on false pride!!"
