VERSE 1: MC LARS Spinal Tap wrote a song about this monument if you ever take a trip you’ll be glad you went older than the pyramids - there it is - wow! 4000 years ago they created it - how? on the salisbury plane (yeah) they put 85 stones, where 53 remain In a circle - a calendar, not pocket sized built over generations, but how? And why? 1,500 tons of rock - that’s lot no trucks or cranes on that sacred spot but here’s where it’s crazy - it gets kind of silly 80 blue stones carried from the Hills of Preseli (pri - sell - I) in Southwest Wales - 200 miles an un-unionized project that took a darn while log boats carried stones cross the estuary was it a church, or a clock or a cemetery? CHORUS: I'm talking about Stonehenge! (Where druids deonte the passing of time) Stonehenge! (How did they build it, when did they, why?) Stonehenge! (Constructed by merlin they say that’s so tight) Stonehenge! (The solstice is coming let’s stay up all night) VERSE 2: MEGA RAN Stonehenge - yo! It's an ancient site but no-one knows how and no one knows when It was put together and then it came apart like some old friends Maybe an old time, or a burial site - it makes no sense! Celebrations around the solstice If they served sweets and other dope treats they'd call it "Scone Henge" Or if they stayed up and got blazed up maybe "Stoned Henge" But for real though! Nobody really knows! Let's go in! Paid £30 just to walk the grounds, no answers found what a let down! CHORUS: I'm talking about Stonehenge! (Where druids deonte the passing of time) Stonehenge! (How did they build it, when did they, why?) Stonehenge! (Constructed by merlin they say that’s so tight) Stonehenge! (The solstice is coming let’s stay up all night) VERSE 3: KOO KOO KANGA ROO Just a couple tourists, look at us riding so hard on this sightsee bus and I guess we gotta trust that we’ll figure out what’s the big deal what the frick is the fuss/ all my life ive dreamed of rocks not talking bout the kind that a rapper rocks I mean a stone so big you can see for blocks whoever built these here, yo I give em props now that we made it my first thought is ‘whoa’ boulders on boulders, cause thats how we roll How did this happen, we may never know rappin’ on this track cause Lars said so yo, im just a curious dude somehow these slabs of rock were moved stonehenge if you’re in the mood this mysterious site has to be viewed CHORUS: x2 I'm talking about Stonehenge! (Where druids deonte the passing of time) Stonehenge! (How did they build it, when did they, why?) Stonehenge! (Constructed by merlin they say that’s so tight) Stonehenge! (The solstice is coming let’s stay up all night)

"King Lear, King Lear" lyrics by MC Lars music by SMP VERSE 1: King Lear, King Lear think we’ve got a problem here Gonna give away your kingdom to the daughter most dear appearances deceiving - this tempest in your mind takes away the feeling from your senses feeling fine Cordelia, Regan, Goneril - Who will do you dirty? filial ingratitude - you’re vision’s looking blurry Guess you’ll stumble when you see, searching for the meaning when you’re homeless on the street - cause your girls are steady scheming PRE-CHORUS: Demons to the left of you Serpents to your right that’s you sleep with one eye open on these cold Britania nights Demons to the left Serpents to the right that’s we sleep with one eye open on these cold Britania nights CHORUS: You can’t see what’s going on (going on) you can’t see what’s going on (going on) locked behind the castle doors your daughters do you wrong (KING LEAR) VERSE 2: This cold night, will turn us all to fools will make us go insane, King Lear you know it’s true Gloucester gets blinded, then he tries to end it all Edgar says he made it, he somehow survived the fall that’s when Lear appears with Cordelia they find that she truly loved her father but to truth Lear is blind wish he never banished her captured in the battle, (so then) every one is killed - and they’re slaughtered just like cattle (oh!) PRE-CHORUS: Demons to the left of you Seprents to your right that’s you sleep with one eye open on these cold Britania nights Demons to the left Seprents to the right that’s we sleep with one eye open on these cold Britania nights CHORUS: You can’t see what’s going on (going on) you can’t see what’s going on (going on) locked behind the castle doors your daughters do you wrong (KING LEAR) BRIDGE: How sharper than a serpent's tooth / serpent's tooth It is to have a thankless child! Thankless child! How sharper than a serpent's tooth / serpent's tooth It is to have a thankless child! Thankless child!

CHORUS: “Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.” Maybe you might know these rhymes? They are from a sonnet that Shakespeare wrote long ago Fourteen lines, the first three quatrains establish a theme VERSE 1: "What is pentameter?" Let’s take a look? Five pairs of syllables - where rhythm is the hook Leaving Petrarch shook with Shakespeare's twist Unstressed / stressed and it sounds like this: "But soft what light through yonder window breaks?" Helping actors learn their lines to minimize mistakes ‘cause life is complicated, hardly idyllic Like an amphibrach mixed with a foot so dactylic CHORUS “Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.” Maybe you might know these rhymes? They are from a sonnet that Shakespeare wrote long ago Fourteen lines, the first three quatrains establish a theme William Shakespeare (Shakespeare!) Wrote mad sonnets William Shakespeare (Shakespeare!) Wrote mad sonnets If you love someone, drop pentameter on ‘em William Shakespeare (Shakespeare!) Wrote mad sonnets William Shakespeare (Shakespeare!) Wrote mad sonnets If you love someone, drop pentameter on ‘em VERSE 2: What do we know about Shakespeare’s life? No tell-all biographies penned by his wife So we look to the sonnets - and read what they say Who was the Dark Lady? Who was Anne Hathaway? And was Shakespeare gay? No one really knows but he wrote hella poem showing love to his bro "Was Shakespeare even Shakespeare?" many scholars want to know by any other name is a rose still a rose? Yo! Seriously though - the authorship question is a very important one and it’s honestly worth of its own song. Stay tuned for that. Yo DJ! This drop is too long! What is this, Coriolanus? CHORUS: Rhyme scheme goes AB AB CD CD EF E F, the final lines always rhyme and they all resolve (GG) Petrarch he wrote sonnets too but this song’s not 'bout you A - BBAABB- C DC DC D? (Please!) William Shakespeare (Shakespeare!) Wrote mad sonnets William Shakespeare (Shakespeare!) Wrote mad sonnets If you love someone, drop pentameter on ‘em OUTRO: Sonnet 126 we want to know where did your missing rhyming couplet go? Sonnet 126 we want to know where did your missing rhyming couplet go? Sonnet 126 we want to know where did your missing rhyming couplet go? Sonnet 126 we want to know where did your missing rhyming couplet go? Sonnet 126 we want to know where did your missing rhyming couplet go? Sonnet 126 we want to know where did your missing rhyming couplet go? Sonnet 126 we want to know where did your missing rhyming couplet go? I don't know... shoot!
