De La Soul – Intro Lyrics
Hey all you kids out there! Welcome to Three Feet High and Rising! Now, here's what we do. The following contestants... how are you doing, contestants?
(General babble, inc. 'Okay', 'Alright', 'Yo Mama')
So fellas, tell us a little bit about yourselves. Contestant number one!
[Contestant #1 (Dove)]
How ya doin', Al. Just came all the way down from Wichita just to be on this show. You know it's gonna be swell and I wanna win all the money. I wanna win all the money. See ya
All right, contestant number 2
[Contestant #2 (Mase)]
Excuse me, um, my name is, um, P.A. Mase, I'm from Australia, and I'm just glad to be here
Okay, contestant number 3
[Contestant #3 (Pos)]
Hello, my name is, uh, Plug One, and um... Let me tell you a little bit about myself, I like Twizzlers and um, I like the Alligator Bob, and my favorite drama movie is Bloodsucking Freaks, just like your mama
Okay, and contestant number 4
[Contestant #4 (Prince Paul)]
Hello, my name is Prince Paul and I'm just... glad to be on the show. Thank you
Okay, and now we've met our contestants, let's get to the game!
I'm going to ask an amount of four questions, and you'll try to answer them correctly. Now, you out there in the audience can answer along with them!
How many feathers are on a Purdue chicken?
How many fibers are intertwined in a Shredded Wheat biscuit?
What does 'Touche et lele pu' mean?
How many times did the Batmobile catch a flat?
Now that we know the questions, we'll let the contestants think them over, and we'll return right after these messages
