Below are the lyrics to the long-lost classic “Daaaaaaaaaammmmm-mmmmmmmmmnnnnnnn” by the completely unknown white 80s hip-hop artist, Rat Tail, whose current whereabouts are unknown. It was transcribed from a cassette tape discovered last November, wrapped in a ball of human hair in a garbage dump in Guadalajara, Mexico.

DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
I say, DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
Put your hands in the air and say,
DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
I say, DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
If you hate all the hate say,
DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN

Black and white and white and black


To all you racist suckas, time to take your hate back
Say goodbye to all the anger, stop saying hello
’Cause the wack that you attract in your mind is not mellow
Your thoughts are trash, poisonous like a crack stash
Flash back to slavery back to now like a back flash
Your ignorance is wreckin’ shit like a car crash
So stressin’ I’m confessin’ that it’s giving me an ass rash
Don’t look at race or color, everyone’s your brother, sister, mother, father, don’t bother
Thinking what you’re thinking ’cause you know it got you stinking
Like a bum on the corner in the afternoon drinking
But you can’t blame him ’cause his ass got canned
By a racist white man, also known as the man
But the man ain’t the man if he don’t act the man
And respect his fellow man ’cause that man is a man

DAAAAAAAMMMMMMNNNNNN


Why you hatin’ like that
DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMNNNNNN
You’re hatin’ so wack
DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMNNNN
Stop the hate attack and judging all God’s children as just white or black
DAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMNNNNNN
Your mind needs a Tic Tac
DAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMNNNNN
Hate, hit the road, Jack
DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
You best get back on track, ’cause if you don’t, Rat Tail is gonna give you a smack

DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN


Rat Tail ain’t hatin’
A fly girl fly and you know that we datin’
Any type of skin tone in my bed, in my home
The only color that I see is the gray of my phone
Booty-call all types of girls all around the world
God blessed the world with all different types of girls
I love my face and my dick between black and brown thighs
Black pussy on my face like I’m wearing a disguise
I can’t really see how you can sleep at night
Your mind ain’t right, and your shit ain’t tight
Far from dynamite, not quite fantastic
If you keep up the hate, I’m gonna snap like elastic
See Rat Tail is the man ’cause I love my fellow man
If you don’t understand, I guess you’re not the man
’Cause a man ain’t the man if he don’t act the man
And respect his fellow man cause that man is a man

DAAAAAAAMMMMMMNNNNNN


Why you hatin’ like that
DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMNNNNN
You’re hatin’ so wack
DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMNNNN
Stop the hate attack and judging all God’s children as just white or black
DAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMNNNNNN
Your mind needs a Tic Tac
DAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMNNNNN
Hate, hit the road, Jack
DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
You best get back on track ’cause if you don’t Rat Tail is gonna give you a smack

DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN

Say, DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
For MLK say, DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
For Malcom X say, DAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNN
