Thank You, Dr. Dre     [Part 1 of My Artists of Color Trilogy]

 

Song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Structure:  Accent points align for both verses.

 

Read along to my Spoken Verse Performance!

 

 

VERSE 1

 

I’m hoofin’ it home

 

After a long twelve hour shift

 

On the sidewalk alone

 

Letting my mind drift.

 

 

But traffic noise interferes

 

With my groove along the way.

 

But Monster Beats cover my ears.

 

And clearly I hear music play…

 

So let me thank you, Doctor Dre.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Thank you, Dr. Dre.

 

Thank you, Dr. Dre.

 

The best headphones wear your name.

 

Yeah, all those other ‘cans’ are lame.

 

So thank you, Dr. Dre.

 

 

BRIDGE #1

 

Now don’t ask me what practice he’s got,

 

Although philosophy would be my guess.

 

But I’m thinking that he’s probably not,

 

An OD, MD, surgeon or DDS.

 

 

Or even the type who’d work on Flipper.

 

But it doesn’t really matter which doctor,

 

Hell, he might even be a witch doctor.

 

Like old Dr John the Night Tripper.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

So forget the past

 

Cause this is head phone’s golden age

 

Hear the real thing at last

 

As if you’re on stage.

 

 

My dear old Dad never knew,

 

How “El Paso” could sound played through,

 

Your awesome ‘cans’, would have been sweet,

 

Or even ear buds like urBeats.

 

He would have thanked you, Doctor Dre.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Thank you, Dr. Dre.

 

Thank you, Dr. Dre.

 

The best headphones wear your name.

 

Yeah, all those other ‘cans’ are lame.

 

So thank you, Dr. Dre.

 

 

BRIDGE #2

 

I once put on “The Chronic”.

 

When I went out for a walk.

 

I liked the sic grooves demonic,

 

But I’m not down with trash talk.

 

I found the N-word use ironic,

 

And hearing 'mofo' from fillies did shock.

 

 

But one quick listen didn't make me a sinner.

 

Hey, in 1993 it was a Grammy winner.

 

Back when Toni and Eliza were the groove,

 

While Johnny, Paul, and Larry made my feet move.

 

 

And rest assured that I did not sing along.

 

We all know why that would have been wrong.

 

But Death Row Records I'd never deride.

 

Lest I get a cap placed in my back side.

 

 

Much love for Dr Dre as his empire expands.

 

And for all products out there which bear the beats brand.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Thank you, Dr. Dre.

 

Thank you, Dr. Dre.

 

The best headphones wear your name.

 

Yeah, all those other ‘cans’ are lame.

 

So thank you, Dr. Dre.
