Jungle Brothers -- Because I Got It Like That, 1988


Used to be a player, couldn't be trusted
But still in all, I never got busted
A girl in every part of New York City
I thought it was funny, it used to look witty
I had 'em all spread out, even one next door
I had it like that, so what ya askin' for?
4 to 5, you see, was my minimum
And every day, I used to go and get with 'em
One for every hour on the hour
One on the way while I was in the shower
It sounds kinda crazy, it sounds kinda bugged
But you see, Afrika was the one they loved
So you see, it got to a point
where they didn't care
They didn't wanna give me up,
so they agreed to share

why'd fatboy slim ruin the tune?

My point was to show off that particular verse, which has a "poly on acid" feel to it. ;-)

(I though his remix was great... one problem with the original is that it is too slow. His fast version seems just about right for hip hop of this decade)
