Lyrics (Extended album Versions)

Let's Get Groovy, Baby


INTRO

Gabby
What’s that groovy music?

Mayor
Excuse me, I was talking here --

Slang
(slyly)
Hello, Mayor... We meet again.

Mayor
(intoning as a hero does when meeting his nemesis, like Voldemort)
Slang...

Gabby
Well, this interview just got more interesting...

Mayor
Who let Slang and his Band Of Too Many Guitar Players into the studio?

Gabby
Slang, give us your take on this battle of words.

Mayor
(aghast and offended)
What? I’m the guest of honor!...

VERSE 1

Slang
Sometimes talkin’ wrong is cool
Sometimes there are just no rules
Things you learn outside o’ school
Slang

Sometimes things are totally rad
When you rock a new doodad
Sometimes when you say “that’s bad”
...It’s good
Groove me

CHORUS 1

Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get...

Mayor
Okay, that’s enough -- get them out of here.

Slang
Turn his mic off, Gabby.

Mayor
How dare you, I’m the Mayor --
(Mic goes silent)

VERSE 2

Slang
My brother said to Gramma
Dinner was a barforama
And so now he’s on the lam-a
From Mom
Cause that’s wrong

Baby, mama’s gonna cook his goose
Don’t ruffle feathers of who rules the roost
She’s gonna hold him up by his caboose
And go all soccer mom
On his punk baditude

CHORUS 2

Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get...
Slang

Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get groovy, baby
Let’s get...
You rang?

BRIDGE

I get a bad name
When people curse
Please do not swear
My reputation gets worse
Those words are lazy
There’s so much more to me
Use your creativity to
Make Slang phrases soar...

Mayor
Oh please, we’re supposed to feel for this guy?

Slang
Zip it, Mayor
And don’t make it shabby, Gabby...

Gabby
So I’m the lady, yo
On the radio
Givin’ you the scoop
Keepin’ you in the loop
Your redonkulus host
I’m ear candy to most
Lady Gabby Verbose
I be sick -- not to boast
But I’m phat
I’m all that and a bag o’ chips
Hear the skinny, bo binny, come straight from my lips...
Not

Mayor
Please, don’t!

Gabby
Turn him off...
These be airwaves, not scarewaves
Your sweet mental fairways
Bananas bomb diggity
Lickety splickety
Slammin’ and jammin’
Now don’t you be spammin’
I be off the heezie fo sheezie
Not wheezy
No illin’, just chillin’
Yo’ mind I be fillin’
‘Cause I ain’t be shillin’ no nothin’ but superfly...
Slang

Mayor
Please, no!

Gabby
Take it easy, Mayor

VERSE 3

Slang
What the Mayor doesn’t see
Is that Slang is creativity
You can bend the rules and roll with me
OMG!
Zapa-gamma, babe
I just made that up

CHORUS 3

Let’s get groovy, baby

Gabby
Let’s get groovy

Slang
Let’s get groovy, baby

Gabby
It’s a doozy

Slang
Let’s get groovy, baby

Gabby
Sing and soothe me

Slang
Let’s get...

Gabby
Slang

(Repeat Chorus)

Mayor
Dang!

OUTRO

Slang
Let’s get groovy, baby
Slang makes me crazy
LOL, li’l lady
Slang makes me crazy
Wicked cool, yeah it rules

(The Outro fades out very gradually underneath the following dialog...)

Slang
Gabby, my hip cat...
Doctor Noize, my homey...
My brotha from anotha motha and sista from anotha twista...
I’m skeedaddlin’ outta here, babes
Mayor -- keep on stickin’ it
You got your function, and I got mine, my nemesito...
Until we met again --
Cowabunga dudes...

Mayor
Finally, he’s leaving
Okay, now we can get back to our interview

Gabby
And that’s our show for today. We’re out of time.

Mayor
--What? Please...

Gabby
I’d like to thank today’s guest, the incredibly charismatic Mr. Slang --

Mayor
-- Don’t you mean the Mayor Of Grammaropolis and Doctor Noize?

Gabby
Oh yeah, those guys were here too... We hope you’ll join us for tomorrow’s show. We’ll devote the hour to the question that’s been on my mind:

Slang: The coolest hipster in music today, or the coolest hipster EVER?

Until then, I’m Gabby Verbose with Hot Air, sayin’ a shoo-bee-doo-bop and don’t u be illin’ on my wavelength. Peace out groove on stink it up. This is Grammatical Public Radio on WNOT, Grammaropolis.
