DUNKED ON

Froggy Fresh

a game of two on two

Me and Mike vs. James and his boy, Big Blue.

We headed off to Kevin's house right after school Out on the court for a game of two on two

Me and Mike vs. James and his boy, Big Blue.

We headed off to Kevin's house right after school

'Cause he got that new Lifetime basketball hoop.

We game ready, we came ready to play

We came ready to win and bring the trophy home that day

Big Blue said – you ain't bringing home that W

"How you gon score when I'm standing here in front of you?"

I grabbed the ball and I passed it in to Mike

Mike caught the pass, faked left and went right

He broke through the line and he threw it off the glass

I couldn't believe my eyes, he was running so fast

Caught the pass in midair then he threw that boy down

Nobody could believe it, James fell over on the ground

He started cryin, put his hands on his head

And Big Blue looked at me and Mike and he said

Why is James cryin? – Cuz he just got dunked on

I ain't even lyin – yo, he just got dunked on

Yep yep, he was standin in the way

So I jumped up in the air and I dunked it on his face

Why is James cryin? – Cuz he just got dunked on

I ain't even lyin – yo, he just got dunked on

Yep yep, he was standin in the way

So I jumped up in the air and I dunked it on his face

James was mad, I could see it in his eyes

James never gets dunked on and James don't ever cry

He stood up, beat his fist on his chest

Looked at me and Mike and ran his thumb across his neck

He grabbed the ball, squared up to the hoop

Took a hard right step and then he slipped in dog poop

Me and Mike started laughing and he deserved it too

For the rest of the day we called him Captain Poopy Shoe

Then the ball bounced right over to me

Big Blue was so big I could barely even see

I took the ball and I threw it in the air

Although I couldn't see a thing I had a feelin' Mike was there

He grabbed the ball and did an alley-oop dunk

Right on top of James, he made him look like a punk

Then James' girlfriend walked by

She stopped right there and looked me square in the eye

She said

Why is James cryin? – Cuz he just got dunked on

I ain't even lyin – yo, he just got dunked on

Yep yep, he was standin in the way

So I jumped up in the air and I dunked it on his face

Why is James cryin? – Cuz he just got dunked on

I ain't even lyin – yo, he just got dunked on

Yep yep, he was standin in the way

So I jumped up in the air and I dunked it on his face

For the rest of the game, the lead went back and forth

It was all tied up when I checked the score board

There was only 10 seconds left on the clock

James went in for a layup but his shot got blocked

Wat? And then I duked out Big Blue

With the spin move, I was headin straight for the hoop

I looked at Mike, put my hand up in the air

James was standin in the way but you know I didn't care

Mike threw a perfect pass and I jumped so high

I was way up in the sky, dog it felt like I could fly

I grabbed the ball and I threw it down hard

Right on top of James, I felt like a superstar

That's how me and Mike won the basketball game

We beat Big Blue and Big Bad James

'Cause me and Mike are the number one team

And we heard James cry and we heard his mom scream

She said…

Why is James cryin? – Cuz he just got dunked on

I ain't even lyin – yo, he just got dunked on

Yep yep, he was standin in the way

So I jumped up in the air and I dunked it on his face *

Why is James cryin? – Cuz he just got dunked on

I ain't even lyin – yo, he just got dunked on

Yep yep, he was standin in the way

So I jumped up in the air and I dunked it on his face

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Yea, you come up in here - you're gonna get dunked on

Python and Kim

Penny and Shaq

Pippen and Jordan

Boy, me and Mike are back

Out on the court for

'Cause he got that new Lifetime basketball hoop.

We game ready, we came ready to play

We came ready to win and bring the trophy home that day

Big Blue said – you ain't bringing home that W

"How you gon score when I'm standing here in front of you?"

I grabbed the ball and I passed it in to Mike

So I jumped up in the air and I dunked it on his face he is showing his mad skill

Why is James cryin? – Cuz he just got dunked on- James is crying because he is a baby.

So I jumped up in the air and I dunked it on his face- He is showing that he can dunk on people.

Concrete Jungle

Bob Marley

No sun will shine in my day today (no sun will shine)

The high yellow moon won't come out to play

(that high yellow moon won't come out to play)

I said (darkness) darkness has covered my light,

(and the stage) And the stage my day into night, yeah.

Where is the love to be found? (oh-oh-oh)

Won't someone tell me?

Cause my (sweet life) life must be somewhere to be found

(must be somewhere for me)

Instead of concrete jungle (la la-la!),

Where the living is harder (la-la!).

Concrete jungle (la la-la!)

Man you got to do your (la la-la!) best. Whoa, yeah.

No chains around my feet,

But I'm not free, oh-ooh!

I know I am bound here in captivity;

G'yeah, now (never, never) I've never known happiness;

(never, never) I've never known what sweet caress is

Still, I'll be always laughing like a clown;

Won't someone help me? 'Cause I (sweet life)

I've got to pick myself from off the ground

(must be somewhere for me), he-yeah!

In this a concrete jungle (la la-la!)

I said, what do you cry for me (la-la!) now, o-oh!

Concrete jungle (la la-la!), ah, won't you let me be (la la-la!), now.

Hey! Oh, now!

I said that life (sweet life) it must be somewhere to be found

(must be somewhere for me)

Oh, instead, concrete jungle (la-la!) collusion (la-la!)

Confusion (confusion). Eh!

Concrete jungle (la-la!) baby, you've got it in.

Concrete jungle (la la-la!), now. Eh!

Concrete jungle (la la-la!).

What do you stand for me (la-la!), now?

The high yellow moon won't come out to play- Moons do not play , humans do.

I said (darkness) darkness has covered my light,- Darkness does not cover anything but humans do cover things like light.

Wasted Youth

Jim Steinman

I remember everything!

I remember every little thing as if it happened only yesterday.

I was barely seventeen and I once killed a boy with a Fender guitar

I don't remember if it was a Telecaster or a Stratocaster,

but I do remember that it had a heart of chrome and a voice like a horny angel!

I don't remember if it was a Telecaster or a Stratocaster,

but I do remember that it wasn't at all easy.

It required the perfect combination of the correct power chords,

and the precise angle from which to strike.

The guitar bled for a week afterward and the blood was - ooh -

dark and rich like wild berries.

The blood of the guitar was Chuck Berry red.

The guitar bled for about a week afterward but it rung out beautifully,

and I was able to play notes that I had never even heard before.

So, I took my guitar and I smashed it against the wall,

I smashed it against the floor,

I smashed it against the body of a varsity cheerleader,

I smashed it against the hood of a car,

I smashed it against a 1981 Harley Davidson.

The Harley howled in pain.

The guitar howled in heat.

And I ran up the stairs to my parents' bedroom.

Mommy and Daddy were sleeping in the moonlight.

Slowly I opened the door, creeping in the shadows,

right up to the foot of their bed.

I raised the guitar high above my head,

and just as I was about to bring the guitar crashing down upon the centre of the bed,

my father woke up screaming:

"Stop! Wait a minute! Stop it boy! What do you think you're doing?

That's no way to treat an expensive musical instrument!"

And I said "God dammit Daddy! You know I love you,

but you've got a hell of a lot to learn about rock and roll!"

I do remember that it had a heart of chrome and a voice like a horny angel!

The Guitar is loud and not shutting up.

The guitar bled for a week afterward and the blood was - ooh - dark and rich like wild berries- It had liquid coming out of the guitar so that it can play sound not heard before.

Basketball

Cade Hannert

When I shoot Three Pointers The ball goes in like a person diving in a pool

Every time I touch a basketball I think about a pig,

I alley-oop Ty because he is big.

When someone gets an and-one the crowd "blasts" in cheer.

The bus rides are bad but they are fun,

So we have to run.

The ball ran down the court and went out of bounce.

When I take a charge it hurts,

But it is worth it so we can get the win.

The buzzer yelled at the teams to end the game.
