WELL, I'M CATHERINE MORGAN AND I'M THE NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBOR TO THE GOTEE'S AND UH, THE GOTEE'S WERE OVER THERE AND THEY HAD A DRUMMER THAT CAME IN HERE TO PLAY THE DRUMS THAT DAY AND HE PLAYED IT EARLY IN THE MORNIN', AND HE PLAYED IT I HAD HIM FOR BREAKFAST, AND FOR LUNCH, AND FOR DINNER SO I HOLLERED AT TODD AND TOLD HIM THAT I COULDN'T STAND THAT DRUMMER ANY LONGER THAT HE WAS DRIVING MY CRAZY AND KEVIN SPOKE UP AND SAID, "MRS. MORGAN," SAYS, "THAT'S A LIVE DRUMMER WE'VE GOT OVER THERE TODAY" AND I SAID, "IF HE HITS THE DRUM ONE MORE TIME HE'S GONE BE A DEAD DRUMMER" AND THAT WAS THE LAST I HEARD OF THE DRUMMER THAT DAY
Word up! I wanna say peace to my peeps, the Beatnuts Messengers OfFunk, strictly Roots My man Four Flex, Zulu Nation Jazzy J in the house Diamond D, the whole Diggin' In The Crates crew And rest in peace to my man Tony Montana Aiyo, I'm out, word is bond The shit is real
Now if you wanna hear some boogie like I'm gonna play It's just an old piano and a knockout bass The drummer man's a cat, they call Kickin' McCoy You know, remember that rubber-legged boy? Mama's cookin' chicken fried and bacon grease Come on along boys, it's just down the road apiece
The drummer is wearing a tank top In a corner just left of the stage The guitar player's popping the rhythm He wears a bathing suit faded with age Mr. Bass Man in his sunglasses Oh, he's thumping his upright bass The steel drum pinging the high notes Got 'em swinging all over the place
