Wyclef Jean – Intro/Court/Skit Lyrics
Bring your ass, Pump the positivity
From the people who brought you "Nappy Heads" in '94, "The Score" in '96
(as Wyclef sings Mamacusa-mamacumucumusa)
Now WYCLEF presents "The Carnival", feel the excitement, taste the culture, know who you are...
Starring, Wyclef as 'Big Nigger'
Featurin' Lauryn Hill as MOM OF THE BEAT?
This wig ain't gonna cut it
Also Prakazrel as Haitian Harry
Yard mon harry, Yard bomba-clot mon harry
John Forte as Trey-wud
And he just kept fondlin' me right there
Melky Sedeck as House Nigger
Y'all get off from 'round there!!!!!
All rise for the Honorable Judge Bartholomew Holda-niggadown
The 3d, federal case #B3946006
The US Government VS. The efforts of He'cliff
Yeah, yeah, you know what I am talking about, whatever!
Yeah, your honor, here today the DA's office
Proved to the jury beyond a reasonable doubt
That this son-of-a-bitch here is not only a player
He's a definite bad influence and is capable of inciting MANY riots
Your honor! He's a god-damn revolutionary
HAy-yo, your Honor!
This case is pure bishop, ok!?
This is a waste of taxpayers money, an' waste of your time
I'll prove to you of without a'chateau (shadow) of a doubt....
...that my clientele is innocent!
Yeah, wha-whatever, your Honor
I not only have tapes of him, incriminating his god-damn self..
But I got witnesses of diverse ethnic backgrounds who will testify today...
TODAY! That Wyclef is NOT innocent, your Honor.(pas possible!)
Hand me the tape
Your Honor, I'd like to enter this as Exhibit A\
Play the tape!
[Las Vegas Announcer]
Ladies and Gentlemen!!!!!....
Right about now
If you drivin' in your car you stuck in traffic
I beg you turn off your radio
We are not stopping for no red lights tonight
Blow your horns
Close the bar down cuz we are coming to drive you
Ladies, we beg you--hide your purses!
Soldiers, lighters in on the air tonight
YES MAN, Arrival of the Carnival, NEW BEATS WE NEVER RECYCLE!
Big up more like Wyclef, more like Prakazrell a.k.a. Dirty Cash
More like John Forte, L Joogie, more like Jerry Wonder
Soldiers, lighters in on the air, we are not stopping for no red light tonight
There is no guest list TONIGHT.........................
