[Bret's lyrics are in green, while Jemaine's are in red.]
Y’know, you don’t really know who you’re dealing with
And with those wack rhymes of yours, I feel bad for One Republic.
I’m the Rhymenocerous, I flip you the birds from on my back
And I’m in a horny mood for talkin smack
Against a band of tangerine pro-teen maniacs.
They call me the Hiphopopotamus, lyrics are bottomless... Uh... [clears throat]
[Instrumental break as Jemaine and Bret do a dance break, until Jemaine manages to think of what to say.]
They call me the Hiphopopotamus, lyrics glow like phosphorus.
Poppin extreme disses off the top of this esophagus
To the worst show on Nickelodeon since Drake & Josh’s permanent hiatus.
We’re both wild, yet trained, domesticated
You’ll give up your recording time just to be dated.
You’re terrorizing your boss, while we’re Cheering Up Murray.
Now excuse us while we go to those three Sexy Ladies.
Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
No, I'm thinking what I'm thinking.
So you're not thinking what I'm thinking?
No, but I am thinking what you think I'm thinking.
We're about to make it rain on their faces.
You're battling us, but only cause You Wanna Be Famous.
Leave us, Mother Uckers, go back to Minnesota.
Our rhymes make you go owowowowoowoaoa.
We used to be immature like you, then we took knives and forks to the knee.
You don't got music, sounds more like a screaming junkie with monkey disease.
Without emotion, this time, so that they won't be misled.
We'll let the robots know that Big Time Rush is dead!
- He and Jemaine are the fifth and sixth music artists to appear in Alanomaly Rap Battles, following Big Time Rush (Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena, Jr., and Logan Henderson), and followed by Will Smith, Adam Sandler, Eminem, Johnny Cash, Skrillex, the Butcher Babies (Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd), and Elvis Presley.
