SPAM OF THE WEEK

starting off a letter with My Beloved is not a good way about trying to trick me into giving my bank account details to him.

On 2/22/07, daniel vincent wrote:

My Beloved,

Greetings:

I am sorry to intrude into your private and peaceful life, all the same My
name is Mr.Daniel Vincent, I work as an accountant in a bank; I contacted
you to work together with me in claiming my late client's estate.
Unfortunately he died without a registered next of kin and as such the funds
now have an open beneficiary status.

You could be made the beneficiary since you share the same last name with
him. This has officially transferred the right to you, as no other person
knows anything about this fund with our bank.

If you are interested in working with me, please get back to me as quickly
as possible, so that I give you the details of what we are to do.

I wait for your prompt response so that I can give you more briefing of what
you need to and how to do it.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Sincerely,

Daniel Vincent.

GOVERNMENT WASTING TIME

Are you fed up with the Government wasting money on pointless laws and studies. Well why don't they waste their time doing something with entertainment value, like petitioning the PM to stand on his head and juggle ice cream

Someone sent me in a joke and it's actually pretty funny. I don't really know how to reference the joke so I won't


A teacher asks her class to use the word 'contagious'.

Roland the class swot gets up and says, "Last year I got the measles and
my Mum said it was contagious."

"Well done, Roland" says the teacher. "Can anyone else try?"

Katie, a sweet little girl with pigtails,says, "My grandma says there's a
bug going round, and it's Contagious."

"Well done, Katie" says the teacher. "Anyone else?"



Little Irish Shaun jumps up and says in a broad Irish voice, "Our Next
door neighbour is painting his house with a two-inch brush and My Da says
'It will take the contagious'"

ANOTHER JOKE

My Mother told me this, I will just give you the punch line

WHO IS REX GARROD

We were talking about Robot Wars in the office and people starting mentioning the legend of Rx Garrod. I'm afraid I'm not very good no my Robot Wars history but the chaps were saying that Rex was da man. So we did some research.

Rex Garrod

An all-rounder in the robot wars arena.
Famous for robot innovations:
Famous for 'being there at the start':
And
Famous for writing articles for magazines:
Just been looking at the specs for the house robots.

HOSKING SALUTE

To me for going out and watching Liverpool beat the reigning European champions and then dancing in walkabout when Sarah Cox was the DJ!


Elvis' middle name, is it Aron or Aaron? (http://www.elvis.com/elvisology/faq/faq.asp?qid=11)

Are you ready for this? Either spelling is right and either spelling is wrong. But, how can that be?

Elvis was named after his father, Vernon Elvis Presley, and Mr. Presley's good friend in Tupelo, Aaron Kennedy. Aron was the spelling the Presleys chose, apparently to make it similar to the middle name of Elvis' stillborn identical twin, Jesse Garon Presley. Jesse was apparently named after Vernon's father, Jessie Presley, although the spelling was slightly different.

Toward the end of his life, Elvis sought to change the spelling of his middle name to the traditional and biblical Aaron. In the process he learned that official state records had inexplicably listed it as Aaron, and not Aron as on his original birth records. Knowing Elvis' plans for his middle name, Aaron is the spelling his father chose for Elvis' tombstone, and it's the spelling his estate has designated as the official spelling when the middle name is used today.

Similarly, there is some slight confusion regarding the spelling of Jesse Garon's name. Most reliable resources have the spelling as Jesse. However, near the graves of Elvis, his parents and his grandmother at Graceland is a marker the family placed in memory of Elvis' twin, but the spelling is Jessie for reasons we have yet to determine. Jesse Garon's actual grave site is in Tupelo, MS where it has always been, but it remains unmarked by a tombstone. Lack of money in the family's early years was likely the reason. Then, once Elvis became wealthy and famous, the grave, which is in a public cemetery, remained unmarked most likely in the interest of privacy. Because of the spelling on the marker at Graceland, we tend to use the spelling Jessie to avoid confusion.

What is the Dark Crystal all about

I was thinking about the dark crystal the other day, I remember liking it but not really remembering what actually happens in it

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083791/

according to imdb

Another planet, another time. 1000 years ago the Dark Crystal was damaged by one of the Urskeks and an age of chaos began. Now the time of the great conjunction of the three suns is near. If the crystal is not healed now the control of the evil Skekses will last forever. Jen the last of the Gelfings nearly exterminated by monsters controlled by the Skekses starts his dangerous journey to find the missing shard of the crystal. Will he be able to heal the crystal and restore order on the planet?

Here is some triva from imdb

The Dark Crystal (1982)

  • At the time it was made, it was hailed as the only live action film in which a human actor makes no appearance.
  • The little hairy things that crawl across and that the Creatures eat are modified wind-up toy robots that run like crazy on two legs as a round rolling central body that houses the wind up motor. The wind-up key was removable.
  • The Special Edition DVD features several "workprint" takes showing early passes at dialogue. This early voice-over work differs from the final dialogue in several ways: the Skeksis speak in a foreign language, Frank Oz provided the voice of Aughra (sounding very similar to his voice work for Yoda in the Star Wars movies), and the Mystics were referred to by (presumably) their original name, the ur-Ru. The novelization was apparently based on this earlier version, referring to the "Trial By Stone" contest by its original name - "Hakskeekah" - and calling the Mystics the ur-Ru. In the final film, one reference to ur-Ru was not redubbed: when the Mystics enter the Skeksis Great Hall, SkekOk, the Scrollkeeper sees them and shouts "Ur-Ru!"
  • Was the highest-grossing box office release of 1983 in France and Japan.
  • The movie's conceptual artist Brian Froud and puppet designer Wendy Midener met on the set of the movie and were later married.

RETRO GAME

Hunchback

http://www.thehouseofgames.net/index.php?t=10&id=41

The link is here You are Quasimodo the hunchback and the love of your life Esemeralda has been kidnapped and now you go out to rescue her. Standing between you and her are many levels of deadly falls, traps and guards. There is no way for you beat any of the guards and traps so the only way to advance is to jump and avoid them. You start each level at the left of the screen and your aim is to get to the right side and ring the bell. Each level becomes progressively more difficult with the earlier levels only having a single obstacle like arrows, boulders and guards but the later ones combine them to make them sometimes near impossible. The one thing every level has in common is the invincible knight that crawls up the wall, he's not fast but he can he can walk over any obstacle and if you take too much time he will eventually get to you.

Hunchback is the type of game that was very common in those days with short and simple level design. If you are able to finish all the levels you are simply send back to the beginning and you start over but with the speed increased. Eventually you'll die anyway so you can't really finish the game. The game is extremely unforgiving and at the least touch of an object you fall off the wall and lose a life so getting to the final level is very difficult. I used to play this game quite a lot but it seems pretty dated today but if you judge it by the standards of 1983 it's not bad.

Non-Football Story Of The Day
Reports the BBC website:

'Footage of four women goading toddlers to fight has "stunned" police and social services in Devon.

'The boy, aged two, is seen crying after being punched in the face by the three-year-old girl and is told by one of the four women in the room "not to be a wimp or a faggot" and to hit her back.

'The four women, all from the same family, are heard laughing as the toddlers are urged to keep on fighting.

'The court heard that when interviewed by police, one of the women said: "I didn't see any harm in toughening them up. I done the same with my own children."'

'On Monday night, after "quite a few vodkas", the 42-year-old bricklayer from Louth Bay, near Port Lincoln, thought it would be a good idea to jump in the ocean and wrestle with a 1.3m bronze whaler shark that had been spotted "hanging around". He caught the shark with his bare hands, dragging it onto the Louth Bay jetty to the cheers of other fishermen. The only damage was to his jean, which received a few nips. But rather than keep hold of his "trophy shark" as a memento, Mr Cee skinned and gutted it, and has been eating it all week. "I've got 10 or a dozen real good feeds from it, and I've still got a fair bit of him in the freezer to last me a while," he said. Mr Cee admits his actions were not very clever and "wouldn't recommend anyone try it". "It's amazing what vodka does to you, but when I woke up the next morning I thought it probably wasn't the smartest thing to do," he said' - News.com.au.

WHAT BLOKES LOVE


From wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammary_gland

Mammary glands are the organs that, in the female mammal, produce milk for the sustenance of the young. These exocrine glands are enlarged and modified sweat glands and are the characteristic of mammals which gave the class its name.

bah it makes bobbies sound boring, there was a link on this page to witches milk, what could be I thought - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witch%27s_milk

Witch's milk or neonatal milk is milk secreted from the breasts of some newborn infants. It is the result of the influence of the mother's hormones prior to birth. Witch's milk is only secreted by infants born at full term, and not by the breasts of prematurely-born infants. It normally resolves without treatment within one to two weeks after birth.


SO WHAT IS VALENTINES DAY

AIRPLANE

if you don't know the film Airplane well just take you hand and give yourself a slap and then give yourself another one from me. here is the trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaXvFT_UyI8

here is a link to all of em - http://www.garnersclassics.com/qairpln.htm

[As the plane prepares to take off.]

Old lady: Nervous?

Ted Striker: Yes.

Old lady: First time?

Ted Striker: No, I've been nervous lots of times.

Elaine Dickinson: You got a letter from headquarters this morning.
Ted Striker: What is it?
Elaine Dickinson: It's a big building where generals meet, but that's not important.

also here is some airplane trivia

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080339/trivia

David Letterman screen-tested for the role of Ted Striker.

The film is mostly a parody of Zero Hour! (1957), a film that had a main character named Ted Stryker and such famous "not meant to be funny" lines like "We have to find someone who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner."

Singer/Songwriter Barry Manilow was considered for the role of Ted Stryker before Robert Hays was hired.

The film cost $3.5 million and only took 34 days to make.

The automatic pilot blow-up doll ultimately disintegrated after spending several years in 'Jerry Zucker' 's garage.

The obligatory copyright notice at the end of the film which warns against piracy or unauthorized duplication ends with the comment "So there!"

SPOILER: Captain Oveur's line to the little boy "Have you ever seen a grown man naked?" was originally "Have you ever sucked a grown man's cock?" which was dropped for obvious reasons.

quotes of the week

AFC Wimbledon site

http://www.afcwimbledon.co.uk

The story of AFC Wimbledon

In the summer of 2002, an FA Commission granted permission for a group of businessmen to relocate Wimbledon FC Ltd to Milton Keynes, 70 miles from its history, home and community. Initially devastated at the loss of their club, within a matter of weeks the supporters took a fresh approach by creating their own team.

Backed by the Wimbledon Independent Supporters Association (WISA) and the Dons Trust, AFC Wimbledon was born. Just six weeks later, having obtained a ground, senior status and many hundreds of season ticket applications, the Dons played their first friendly on Wednesday 10th July against Sutton United at Gander Green Lane, in front of a staggering crowd of over 4,500.

By then the Dons had already been elected into the Combined Counties League and had appointed former Dons full-back Terry Eames as manager. The opening day of the season saw the CCL's attendance record smashed as 2,449 people squeezed into Sandhurst Town's Bottom Meadow ground to see the Dons celebrate their first competitive game with a 2-1 win thanks to goals by Kevin Cooper and Keith Ward. Days later, the "house full" signs were hung out at Kingsmeadow, but the first home game ended in disappointment for the bumper crowd as Chipstead won 2-1.

It was early inconsistency as the new squad settled which ultimately cost the Dons promotion in that inaugural season as, despite an impressive late unbeaten run, they ended up finishing third behind eventual champions Withdean 2000 and AFC Wallingford, amassing a total of 111 points.

But 2003-04 was a different story. It wasn�t until January that the Dons dropped any league points, by which stage they were already well clear of AFC Wallingford and odds-on for promotion and the Combined Counties League title.

By the end of the season, the biggest question was whether the players would manage to go through the entire season unbeaten. The answer was an emphatic yes as they finished with 42 games won and just four drawn, chalking up a record 130 points and a staggering goal difference of +148.

And, to complete a fantastic Combined Counties League double, the Dons also lifted the Premier Challenge Cup, coming from behind to beat North Greenford United 4-1 at a packed Woking stadium.

The summer of 2004 saw the Dons back in the Isthmian League for the first time since 1964. If the future holds half as much adventure as those 40 years of absence did, the Dons could be all set for another amazing journey.

ELVIS CRACKS UP SINGING

'The King...'

Elvis' famous "laugh" version of "Are you Lonesome Tonight" is a real masterpiece. Someone put him up to swapping some of the lyrics in the early part of the song, such that he wonders "do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair"? He is uncontrollably amused by this but nonetheless, this version has become one of best loved and most memorable of the King's huge catalogue. Just as amusing is how the backing singer carries on in so unflinchingly a professional manner even after the "sing it baby" comment!

WORD OF THE WEEK (from dictionary.com)

moribund \MOR-uh-bund\, adjective:

1. In a dying state; dying; at the point of death.
2. Becoming obsolete or inactive.

He put on a beaver overcoat, a present from a wealthy Petrograd banker and speculator, Ignati Porfiryevich Manus, whose niece had been moribund with fever until Rasputin's healing intercession had revived her.
-- Brian Moynahan, Rasputin: The Saint Who Sinned

Perhaps this explained his solicitousness, his tender careful moist gaze, as if she were moribund.
-- Kathryn Harrison, The Binding Chair

The real problem is not the economic crisis that dominates the headlines, but a pair of intertwined long-run concerns: the work force is shrinking fast, and Japan undermines its economy's productivity by squandering money on life support for moribund industries and backward regions.
-- Nicholas D. Kristof, "Empty Isles Are Signs Japan's Sun Might Dim", New York Times, August 1, 1999

If talking about books -- a subject often more personal than politics and more arguable than religion -- can be bruising, it can for the same reasons be thrilling. Yet serious literary conversation as an avocation, as an impromptu congress of amateurs, has been moribund for half a century.
-- Brian Hall, "The Group", New York Times, June 6, 1999

Moribund is from Latin moribundus, from mori, "to die."

THE VILLAGE


anyway I was talking about the worse films I have seen and it has to be the village, a film that was so bad it made me angry. I have seen some rubbish films (Jack Frost, Space odyssey 2001, Lep in da hood) but nothing can compare with the village.
some review's below from amazon.co.uk



1 star Disappointment....., 6 Aug 2005
Reviewer: "lucicerious" - See all my reviews
In comparison to the Director's other film, "6th Sense", this film is truly something awful in terms of storyline and plot. If expecting a horror/paranormal film, then please don't watch this movie, as in fact, it's just a drama.

Here's the storyline (do not read if you wish to watch the movie without spoilling the unriverting twisters!) A group of Councilors have all experienced traumatic events in their life where someone close to each of them has been murdered. One of which inherits millions of dollars, and so builds a very large wildlife sanctuary, strictly making sure that the people guarding it don't let anyone ever cross over the boundry walls, not even fly over it. What happens inside the grounds is the silly part. They live a life like our ancestors did in the pre 1800s. No technology, old style language and raise a family in these conditions, with no contact with the outside world. To keep everyone within the village and never wonder into the forests, they make the myth up that there are creatures and every now and then dress in red clothing and disguise themselves into some wolf like creature. Just to keep the act going.

For those that skipped the plot, you may now continue reading.

This film is basically a family drama set in olden times. The acting is brilliant, and the cast do well to bring the film to life. However thats all that does bring it to life. With a poor plot the ending just leaves you blank, devoid of ever bothering to watch the extras such as my family and I won't bother with. If you wish to see this film, I suggest borrowing it first or renting it.

2 stars Stay well away from the village, 3 April 2005

Reviewer: MOVIE BUFF "NINJA #1" (Planet England) - See all my reviews
How dissapointing, a girl who can find her way thought the forrest kill the bad guy and make it back unscratched, i have to ask the question just how blind is she, hope she is not getting benefit :(
The film makers should try and make there way round a woods blind folded, what a joke !
The big twist of the film is its not 1800 but 2004, saw this coming 10 minutes into the film !


5 stars The finest film ever seen that everyone else hated..., 24 Feb 2005

Reviewer: Mr. Simon G. Beauchamp "sgb_sailor" - See all my reviews

This film deserves high praise and lots of it too. But I must warn you, if you're after something brainless and forgettable then look elsewhere. This film will make you think about life and society. Watch this is you want to be mentally challenged...

The story is essentially very basic. A small community from the late 19th Century live in a Village (obviously!) that is entirely self-sufficient. The borders are patrolled by "Those we do not speak of" and a long-standing truce means that neither the villagers nor monsters breach each others borders. However, one man - Lucius Hunt (Joaquin Phoenix) - is too inquisitve to stay within the confines of the village and explores beyond the border. What follows is a swift attack on the village by the monsters. This shocks the community into obidience until someone falls gravely ill, and the only way to save him/her is to go to the towns to fetch new medicines, crossing the borders on the way.

This film is very VERY scary. Not in terms of shocks or anything mindless like that, but purely in the messages it sends out about the society we live in today. To say any more would ruin it but forget what you think you know about evil, desperation, love, and innocence.

The cast are almost as outstanding as the beauty of this picture. Making her debut is Bryce Dallas Howard as the blind Ivy Walker and I can confidently say that, without her, this film wouldn't have HALF the impact. Every second she's on screen you just want to watch and listen without interruption. William Hurt is also perfect in the role of Ivy's Father, especially during the big reveal later into the story.

Anyone who has ever questioned the validity of society and Government NEEDS to see this film. Please don't judge it on first view either; it WILL take you at least 2 showings to really get everything it has to offer. But be warned: have a clear, non-judgemental, and open mind as you sit down to watch. Let the characters, dialogue, beauty, inner-meanings, and story bathe you and help you realise the world you think you know really shouldn't exist. It made me ask "How did it ever get this far...!?"

Now, how do you make this thing do 6 stars....!?

This was sent in by MR C and it sounds brilliant and it's also one of Arnie's first films. Mr C sent me the link with this intro

Just caught this movie on cable tv, and I'm still in shock! : O
I mean this was "The Flying Nun" in the buff!
Arnold Schwarzenegger jammin' on his violin with hillbillies? Was I dreaming?
Robert Englund kicking butt sans Freddy Kruger mask.
And T.C. from Magnum P.I. giving a massage to a beautiful naked redhead but wishing he was raising chickens instead!
Surreal.

Stay Hungry (1976)

Tagline: If you've got an appetite for life:

Summary:

A syndicate wants to buy a whole district to rebuild it. They've bought every house except the small gym "Olympic", where Mr. Austria Joe Santo prepares for the Mr. Universum championships a month ahead. The rich sunny-boy Craig Blake is brought in by the syndicate as a dummy to buy the gym. But then he starts to like the people and falls in love with Joe's friend Marie-Tate.

REVIEW FROM IMDB


Horrible, 11 September 2005

Author: mrhappy145 from United States

The only saving grace of this movie is the bodybuilding, and those scenes are few and far between. If you are an Arnold fan, you will be greatly disappointed in the portrayal of your hero, if not, you may appreciate the way that he is taken out of his usual bad ass roles to show a more "sensitive side." The problem is that this portrayal is ridiculous, to the point where there is a scene with Arnie in the woods playing fiddle in a country jam. If you desperately wan to see this film to see all the films he is in do it. Otherwise, this movie should be prescribed to insomniacs, as i have fallen asleep to it on numerous occasions and suffer from the occasional bout myself

The Flying Nun puts aside her old Habits, 31 January 2005
8/10
Author: gaattc2001 from United States

*** This comment may contain spoilers ***

Saw this in the late 70s at a theater in Memphis. I grew up in Birmingham, so I kept saying, "I've been there...I've been there!" Ah-nuhld plays an Austrian body-builder, which must have been a stretch; Robert Englund is his trainer. Sally Field does her only known nude scene so far, and as others have noted, also wears a lot of minimalist outfits--and goes water-skiing in what must be the smallest bikini seen before Dana Delany on China Beach several years later. Her classic line: "Ah ha'ad to do somethin' to get out of Pratt-ville!" (And Ah can certainly sympathize.) Jeff Bridges plays the agent of the giant soulless conglomerate trying to buy up the health club (where Ah-nuhld is in training, and his girlfriend Field (!) is the secretary) so they can build a high-rise--but gets sidetracked and has to reassess his priorities. Several scenes were shot at the B'ham country club (I've been there!), plus guest appearances by Schwarzenegger regular R.G. Armstrong (also seen as the general in "Predator"), Ed Begley Jr., Birmingham TV personality Fannie Flagg, and others. Armstrong absconds with the bodybuilding exhibition gate receipts, and ends up being chased from Boutwell Auditorium down 20th Street through downtown B'ham and Five Points by a hundred or so bodybuilders dressed in even less than Ms. Field's Bikini--about enough material in all to half-fill a bushel basket. Not bad, if you're so inclined. Years later I was bicycling down Lakeshore Drive in Mountain Brook and went right by the house used as Bridges' residence. Recognized it immediately. I also suspect from the dialog that there were more nude scenes involving Ms. Field, Mr. Bridges, and a bathtub, that ended up on the cutting room floor. At one point she says to him, "...the bath's ready..." Although nothing of this nature has appeared in 28 years, I remain on the lookout. Bottom line: an excellent puff-piece, hardly of earth-shaking significance but still highly recommended.

DIARY OF A PARANOID MAN

Monday

I think they can see my screen on the other side of the room, I told my manager I wasn't happy that the other drones can see my screen, now the boss drone is watching my screen. Why is everyone looking at my screen, every time I look at there is nothing interesting to look at, so I look at their screens

Tuesday

a man on the other side of the office blows his nose at least three times a day, why don't I need to blow my nose so much?

Wednesday

why does Gillian McKeith like looking at peoples poo so much. When I look at my poo I don't feel any emotion, even the ones with nuts in.

Thursdays

Someone parked in my car parking spot today, why are people suddenly parking in different spots, they knew something I don't but I'll find out

Friday

The car park investigation was a success, I found a manager from another office parked in our managers space who then parked in someone else's space etc etc etc

In short: he's intent on world domination.

stolen from the Guardians fiver email

"Thinking yesterday's sign-off line ("WHY TRIPOD, MIKE?") was an obscure song lyric, I typed it into Google and hit 'I'm feeling lucky'. Instead I found a YouTube video of 'Tripod Mike', a scantily-clad dwarf, getting spanked by a woman in a paddling pool full of apple sauce. Now I feel sick" - Dan Carroll.

WORD OF THE WEEK

What is sexsomnia?

Amorous while asleep

http://go.theregister.com/feed/http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/02/03/the_odd_body_sexsomnia/

Falling asleep after sex is common, but falling, sleeping and staying asleep during sex is another matter. The condition is called sexsomnia.

Sexsomnia occurs when a person is asleep and yet proceeds to initiate sexual activity with their bedmate. Sexsomnia is also known as "somnambulistic sexual behaviour".

The greatest comeback since Lazarus, who the bleep is Lazarus

I have often wondered who Lazarus was and why he was always mentioned in comebacks

here is some blurb from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazarus

Lazarus is the name of two separate characters in the New Testament. The more famous one is the subject of the miracle recounted in John 11:41–44, in which Jesus raises him from the dead. The other one appears only in Jesus' parable of Lazarus and Dives recorded in Luke 16:19–31. Due to this story the name is often used to connote restoration, as in the scientific term Lazarus taxon, referring to organisms that reappear in the fossil record after a period of apparent extinction; there are numerous literary uses of the term. The Lazarus phenomenon refers to an event in which a person spontaneously returns to life (the heart starts beating again) after resuscitation has been given up.

BAD LYRICS

SNOW - INFORMER (1993)

"Informer"

[CHORUS:]
Informer
You know say daddy me snow me-a (gonna) blame
A licky boom-boom down
'Tective man he say, say Daddy Me Snow me stab someone down the lane
A licky boom-boom down

Police-a them-a they come and-a they blow down me door
One him come crawl through through my window
So they put me in the back the car at the station
From that point on I reach my destination
Well the destination reached in down-a East detention
Where they whip down me pants look up me bottom

[CHORUS]

Bigger they are they think they have more power
There on the phone me say that on hour
Me for want to use it once and-a me call me lover
Lover who me callin'-a the one Tammy
And me love her in my heart down to my belly-a
Yes say Daddy Me Snow me I feel cool and deadly
Yes the one MC Shan and the one Daddy Snow
Together we-a love 'em(?) as a tornado

[CHORUS]

Listen to me ya better listen for me now
Listen to me ya better listen for me now
When-a me rock-a the microphone, me rock on steady-a
Yes-a Daddy Me Snow me are the article don
But the in an a-out (?) a dance an they say, "Where ya come from?"
People them say I come from Jamaica
But me born and raised (in the ghetto) I want ya to know-a
Pure black people man thats all I man know
Yeah me shoes are-a tear up an-a my toes used to show-a
Where me-a born in-a the one Toronto

[CHORUS]

Come with a nice young lady
Intelligent, yes she gentle and irie
Everywhere me go me never lef' her at all-ie
Yes-a Daddy Snow me are the roam dance man-a
Roam between-a dancin' in-a in-a nation-a
You never know say Daddy Me Snow me are the boom shakata
Me never lay-a down flat in-a one cardboard box-a
Yes-a Daddy Me Snow me-a go reachin' out da top

[CHORUS]

Why would he? [repeat]

[MC Shan:]

Me sittin round cool with my jiggy jiggy girl
Police knock my door, lick up my pal
Rough me up and I cant do a thing
Pick up my line when my telephone ring
Take me to the station, black up my hands
Trail me down 'cause I'm hangin with the Snowman
What an I gonna do, I'm backed and I'm trapped
Smack me in my face, took all of my gap
They have no clues and they wanna get warmer
But Shan won't turn informer

[CHORUS]
