When I made up the name called the...

G: Get Fresh Crew!

D: It was me, my two DJ's Chill Will and Barry B

and my right hand man Ricky D

I used to rap and sing, makes sounds and things

And for example, here's a telephone ring...

R: Hello? Is Doug E Fresh in?

D: No, he's not in right now

D: But anyway, no more delay

Just check out the new style I display

Now ya gotta be (fresh)

To rock with (fresh)

And I'm D.O.U.G.I.E (fresh)

And I'm known for the... [fx: Doug E style beatbox]

Not for the... [fx: Fat Boys style beatbox]

The human beatbox or the entertainer

No other title could fit me plainer

In a passing generation I am a remainer

And I'm also known as the beatbox trainer

Cashin' checks, make sound FX

And after I finish rockin' Slick Rick is on next

R: Ya know it

D: Slick Rick...

R: Well, here's a little somethin' that needs to be heard

Doug, I was goin' Downtown

D: Word Rick?

R: Word

D: Sure

R: All alone, no-one to be with

Stepped on the D-train at 205th

I saw a pretty girl

D: So?

R: So I sat beside her

Then she went [fx: roar] like she was Tony the Tiger

I said, oh no, there's been a mistake

Honey, my name's Slick Rick not Frostie Flakes

D: Oh, golly wally

R: She was raisin' hell

She said, oh my name is Maggie but call me Michelle

Michelle, ma belle

Sont les mots qui vont, tres bien ensemble

Tres bien ensemble

Bust a move, we show and prove

A-yo Doug, do that record Jam on the Groove


D: As you can see, most definitely

We are (fresh)

Chill Will (fresh)

Barry B is (fresh)

Ricky D is (fresh)

And I am, the Original Human Beatbox

The Entertainer, Doug E.... (Fresh)
