MODERN ART?
The name's Hamlet and I've got a tale About madness, lust and a female Dad's a ghost and he roams the floors Lurks at night in Elsinore Got a pale face just like kiss paint Normal you know this ain't Something is rotten up in Denmark A sick mistake

MC Lars Hey There Ophelia

My uncle Claudius, his alibi is fishy Suspicions of murder because he's acting hella shifty Frailty, thy name is woman because my mom's on his DA N I S H throne, my dad's ghost tells me Swear, swear, swear to revenge my regicide Claudius iced me one night, under my crown he tries to hide So Hamlet, here's your mission, use your antic disposition Make them think you're crazy, bring justice, fuse the fission

Meanwhile my girl Ophelia is goth as hell Keeps a razor by her wrist, rocks out to Soft Cell This girl's got more issues than Amy Winehouse I'm like "Get thee to a nunnery, I'm not trying to find a spouse" And she says, "Screw that, forget about that I don't want to think about anything like that Screw that, forget about that I don't want to know about anything like that" I've got nothing to do but hang around and get screwed up on you (Forget it though) I've got nothing to do but hang around and get screwed up on you (Just let it go) I'm an emo prince, non-committal as could be You'd be non-committal too if you were flawed like me Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are on my back and I've had it I've got these players down from Norway, let them practice in the attic

I'll have them reenact the murder, watch my uncle's expression The play's the thing to catch the king and teach him a lesson My uncle freaks out at the play, I know he did it just like OJ Can't 187 while he prays because Hamlet won't play that way, nope Confront my mom, throw her down on the bed Because this Oedipus complex, has got me stressed in the head Then I killed my girlfriend's dad, he was spying, now he's dead I screamed at my mom while the blood made the carpet turn red See kings lose crowns but princes stay intelligent R Kelly has girl problems? This is drama, that's irrelevant Ophelia bursts in throwing columbines and daisies Singing songs about virginity gone, she's honest but she's crazy And she says, "Screw that, forget about that I don't want to think about anything like that Screw that, forget about that I don't want to know about anything like that"

I've got nothing to do but hang around and get screwed up on you (You've got to see) I've got nothing to do but hang around and get screwed up on you (Not you, it's me) We've got clowns in the graveyard and I'm talking to skulls We've got murder and incest, who said Shakespeare was dull? My girlfriend took her life and I'm like, "Goodness, gracious" Her brother wants to duel, Laertes is too pugnacious My uncle dipped the tip of the saber in poison (Duel time) Then he poisoned the cup that mom started enjoyin' (Tool time) I got stabbed with the poison sword Then I stabbed my girlfriend's brother And then I stabbed my uncle And we've all killed each other

To be or not to be Well, I guess that solves that one And I would have stayed in Wattenberg If I'd known that this would happen If you're ever up in Denmark on a moonlit night You'll hear Ophelia's sad song when the full moon's bright Baby, I'm sorry, I messed up, goodnight, my sweet princess May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest and they sing

I've got nothing to do but hang around and get screwed up on you (Forget it though) I've got nothing to do but hang around and get screwed up on you (Just let it go) I've got nothing to do but hang around and get screwed up on you (You've got to see) I've got nothing to do but hang around and get screwed up on you (Not you, it's me)

HAMLET RAP, from the film Renaissance Man [All] They gotta know, they gotta know, We gotta flow, they gotta know, they gotta know, ho (4 times)
To be or not to be The Double D MCs are letting it be Let be, to be or not to be MC Hobbs on the job Ripping rhymes like the mob The sh*t's iller than Cape Fear, the Shakespeare saga Started with this Prince kid, his moms and his father His pops got took for his props undercover by his brother, man Now his brother's king lover, man Actin' real trite he took his brother's life For his green and to sex up his queen But the prince, he ain't goin' for it, he's out for revenge His pop's ghost comes and then Dammit, Hamlet, those are your ends!

So just chill and cool for now Play the fool until you take him out Cuz all eyes is on you, so the one way or another, It's a kamikaze style, or do it undercover But either way, ya gotta say-ah, so what the hey-ah Strap on your black and get set for the payback Ain't got no gat, but he's sportin' a tool Strap on the sword for the Laertes duel Cuz he's tryin' to blame Hamlet for his sister's death But she took her own last breath, she ain't got shhh left

Never heard yet A more absurd set Of circumstances Murder and romances so
Incest, we had to put it to rest We had time to manifest, he stuck the dagger in the king's chest To be or not to be The Double D MCs is letting Let be, To be or not to be The Double D MCs is letting Let be, To be or not to be [Ophelia] The Double D MCs is letting Let be, To be or not to be The Double D MCs is letting Go Hamlet, go Hamlet, go Hamlet, go Hamlet.
