The Humpty Dance Lyrics

The Humpty Dance Song Lyrics


All right! Stop whatcha doin', cause I'm about to ruin
The image and the style that ya used to
I look funny - but yo I'm making money, see
So yo world I hope you're ready for me
Now gather round, I'm the new fool in town
And my sound's laid down by the Underground
I drink up all the Hennessy ya got on ya shelf
So just let me introduce myself
My name is Humpty, pronounced with a "umpty"
Yo ladies, oh how I like to hump thee
And all the rappers in the top ten--please allow me to bump thee
I'm steppin' tall, y'all, and just like Humpty Dumpty
You're gonna fall when the stereos pump me
I like to rhyme, I like my beats funky
I'm spunky, I like my oatmeal lumpy
I'm sick wit dis, straight gangsta mack
But sometimes I get ridiculous
I'll eat up all your crackers and your licorice
Hey yo fat girl, come here are ya ticklish?
Yeah, I called ya fat; look at me, I'm skinny
It never stopped me from getting busy
I'm a freak, I like the girls with the boom
I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom
I'm crazy, allow me to amaze thee
They say I'm ugly but it just don't faze me
I'm still getting in the girls' pants
And I even got my own dance

The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump
Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, just watch me do the Humpty Hump
Do ya know what I'm doing, doing the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump

People say "Yo, Humpty, you're really funny lookin'"
That's all right cause I get things cookin'
Ya stare, ya glare, ya constantly try to compare me
But ya can't get near me
I give 'em more, see, and on the floor, B
All the girls they adore me
Oh yes, ladies, I'm really being sincere
Cause in a 69 my humpty nose will tickle ya rear
My nose is big, uh-uh I'm not ashamed
Big like a pickle, I'm still getting paid
I get laid by the ladies, ya know I'm in charge
Both how I'm living and my nose is large
I get stupid, I shoot an arrow like Cupid
I use a word that don't mean nothing, like looptid
I sang on "Doowutchalike", and if ya missed it
I'm the one who said, "Just grab 'im in the biscuits"
Also told ya that I like to bite
Well, yeah, I guess it's obvious, I also like to write
All ya had to do was give Humpty a chance
And now I'm gonna do my dance

The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump
Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, just watch me do the Humpty Hump
Do ya know what I'm doing, doing the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump

Oh, yeah, that's the break, y'all
Let me hear a little bit of that bass groove right here
Oh, yeah!
Now that I told ya a little bit about myself
Let me tell ya a little bit about this dance
It's real easy to do--check it out

First I limp to the side like my leg was broken
Shaking and twitching kinda like I was smoking
Crazy wack funky
People say ya look like M.C. Hammer on crack, Humpty
That's all right cause my body's in motion
It's supposed to look like a fit or a convulsion
Anyone can play this game
This is my dance, y'all, Humpty Hump's my name
No two people will do it the same
Ya got it down when ya appear to be in pain
Humping, funking, jumping
Jig around, shaking ya rump
And when a doo-doo chump punk points a finger like a stump
Tell him step off, I'm doing the Hump

The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump
Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, just watch me do the Humpty Hump
Do ya know what I'm doing, doing the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump

Black people, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump
White people, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump
Puerto Ricans, do the Humpty Hump, just keep on doing the hump
Samoans, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump



About

December, 19th 2016
It is officially considered as the hip-hop song of the alternative genre, but the performer himself ('Shock G'), considers it a piece from the golden era of hip-hop performance. 'Shock G' is a person who is an actor, a singer, and producer; he worked in the genres dance, funk, jazz, and hip-hop.
He is not an active performer anymore for already 9 years. When he was on the top of his career, he has founded the ‘Digital Underground’ band, which also included Tupac Shakur among the members. We are not sure if this band deserves to be included in the Book of Guinness records, but it has more than 35 participants of this band in the past – isn't it fantastic? They made several singles and 6 albums. They had lots of work done and have been performing for 10 years in a row, from 1988 to 1998. None of their singles reached the top and the maximum position was number 7 in the US R&B singles chart; it was 'Humpty Dance' – this piece. Humpty Dumpty is the name of the alter ego of ‘Shock G’ and it was not even close that successful as many alter egos of currently deceased David Bowie.
In the scenic activity, ‘Shock G’ has been participating with Tupac, Dr. Dre, and Prince. In 2009, it was his last tour, in Canada.
Despite the fact that he doesn't work anymore as a performer, he was still producing until 2004, and he was also as a featured artist in many songs and videos, while his latest work was done in 2015. Though for the sake of truth, it is must be stated that he wasn't active from 2010 to 2015.
The Humpty Dumpty character was created by 'Shock G' as his artificial alter ego, and there was even a background worked out especially to support this scenic legend – as if there was a guy who has allegedly burned his nose by accident in the kitchen by a fryer and since then he doesn't want to show anyone his mutilated nose and that is why he is wearing a Groucho glasses. In the Humpty Dumpty song, he makes emphasis on his own intimate proficiency, which comes in the contradiction to his ridiculous outward appearance. This is largely a parody on lots of hip-hoppers and rappers who consider themselves absolutely outstanding specimen of men. He totally understands that he is not that best example of a human being and that is why he makes fun of the representatives of the show business and specifically the group of rappers always considering themselves an elite (which is so not true).
Besides this motion picture, this song was used several times in other films like, for example, 'Dope' of 2015, the 'Green Hornet' and 'Step Up 2'. It was sampled by several people including famous ones – Justin Timberlake and Spice Girls in their original album when they just get started – and it was number one in the US Rap Charts in 1990.
