The First Rap Song

Scientists have unearthed what appear to be the lyrics to the first rap song.
They are baffled as to the meaning of the lyrics, but are sure that the obvious rhyme pattern clearly indicate an early attempt at spoken-word rhyming set to a musical accompaniment.
So far, scientists have deciphered only a portion of the ancient text:

Watch the DICE in the plastic BUBBLE
It pops you IN and OUT of TROUBLE
Here comes SISTER, look out, JACK!
You got TROUBLE, you go BACK!

Scientists also believe that this lyric may also have resulted in the first music video, as scientists believe that this strange rap first appeared in a short 30 second-long film.


  1. If that jingle ends up in my head I will KILL you, John. I mean, you're a great guy and all, but some things CANNOT BE FORGIVEN.

  2. My work is done.
