"MC Escher"

[ from the album "The Little Red Songbook" (1998) ]

Lyrics

MC Escher
The impossible rapper
Ain't nobody does it better
Under pressure
MC Escher
He's so clever
Gives you pleasure
Forever

The conventions of rap dictate that every MC who takes the mic
Claims to be the best, fills his set with hype
It's O.T.T.

But if we imagine a world where every MC really is badder and fresher
Than every other, it just gets madder and madder
One of those rooftop salmon ladders
Drawn by .....

MC Escher
The impossible rapper
Ain't nobody does it better
Under pressure
MC Escher
He's so clever
Gives you pleasure
Forever

So watch the water flow round and round
Without the need for pressure
This world of perpetual motion
Is just a beautiful illusion

MC Escher
The impossible rapper
Ain't nobody does it better
Under pressure
MC Escher
He's so clever
Gives you pleasure
Forever

Karl Marx and Biz Markie would probably agree
Equality has yet to make much of a mark on the world of the MC

MC Escher
The impossible rapper
Ain't nobody does it better
Under pressure

Spin the turntable round and round
He's got a Boss Dr Sample underground
He's got a bag full of patterns to give the ladies pleasure
It's the rise and fall and rise of the house of Escher

Ain't nobody does it better

Not MC Eric Satie or MC Franz Kafka
Gives you pleasure forever

MC Escher
The impossible rapper
Ain't nobody does it better
Under pressure
MC Escher
He's so clever
Gives you pleasure
Forever
