file New V:TES Rap: The Darby Dance

15 Sep 2022 19:19 - 07 Oct 2022 04:03 #106349 by Killiam
Hello! Creator of the Ravnos Rap here. (BTW, working on adding a verse to that so it can be rapped over the music to Beastie Boys' "Posse in Effect.")

This is my first pass with the Darby Dance, so be gentle. I will consider (but reserve the right to ignore) suggestions to make these lyrics tighter, smoother, funnier or otherwise better. All respect to Methuselahs mentioned and to Digital Underground. This is just for fun. Google "Humpty Dance lyrics" to see how these match up line-for-line; I did my best to respect meter and styling.

(To be karaoke'd over The Humpty Dance by Digital Underground)

The Darby Dance

Alright, stop what you’re doin
Cause I’m about to ruin
This game of Vampire that you’re used to
It’s not funny; your eyes will soon be runny, see
I know this table ain’t ready for me
So back off; I’m the old kid on this block
You’ll be amazed by how much I unlock
I drink up all the whisky and the scotch on your shelf
So just let me introduce myself
My name is Darby; I came with an army
I’m playin allies; you can’t Taste or Disarm me
And all the haters of the Imbued
Please allow me to scar thee
I made a wall y’all, just by playing the Unmasking
You’re gonna fall to the Talbot’s that I’m grasping
I like to rush; don’t make me jumpy
I’m grumpy, I’ll make your vampires stumpy
I’m sick wit dis, straight gangsta mack,
NRA PAC will make this get ridiculous
I untap every turn that I equip with this
Yo, Jennie — come here, ya got Vigilance?
Yeah, I play Imbued, look at me, I’m shameless
And that’s just part of why I’m famous
I stay tuned; I make decks that maim
I rock the top ten in the Hall of Fame — I’m skilled
I’m very strong willed
I weigh every card that I put in my build
After this game you’ll need a change of pants
And I even got my own dance

The Darby Dance is your chance to do the Darb
(Don’t do it, Darby) come on, uh,
Do the Darby Dance, come on and do the Darby Dance
(No, don’t do it Darby) check it out y’all
Do the Darby Dance, just watch me do the Darby Dance
(No don’t do it, baby) yeah
Do the Darby Dance, (ya know what I’m doin’?)
Do the Darby Dance (doing the Darby dance) (oh on, oh no baby)
Come on, do the Darby Dance, ha, do the Darby Dance

People say, “Yo, Darby, Imbued are really sleazy”
Like what, I’m supposed to make this easy?
Ya stare, ya glare, ya wanna gang up on me fellas
..well you’re all just jealous
I’m winning more, me, so check the score, see
Every time there’s a VP
Oh Methuselahs, I’m really being sincere
Talbot’s Chainsaw will more than just tickle your rear
That thing is big, uh-uh I’m not afraid
Big like three damage, it needs to be paid
Ya get saved by the lady, in league with heaven
Her call sign is Cassie 2-4-7!
I got power, to make a vampire cower,
Here’s a word that don’t mean nothin’: Doberwawa
I post in the VEKN, 'case you missed my handle
It's the one that says "Try Deflecting This Grapple"
In forum cause I like to write
By now I guess it’s obvious, I also like to fight
All ya had to do was give Darby a chance
And now I’m gonna do my dance

The Darby Dance is your chance to do the Darb
(Don’t do it Darby) come on, yeah, fight my army
Do the Darby Dance, come on, uh, do the Darby Dance
(No don’t do it Darby) unlock baby, everybody
Do the Darby Dance, do the Darby Dance (come on and do the Darby Dance)
(Oh, oh, no, don’t rush me Darby) uh
Do the Darby Dance (do ya know what they’re doin’?)
Do the Darby Dance (they doin’ the Darby Dance, y’all) (oh, no, don’t rush me, Darby)
Uh, do the Darby Dance, watch me do the Darby Dance

Oh, yeah, them’s the breaks, y’all
Listen to Talbot’s Chainsaw rev:
A-rrrrrr, rrrrr-rr, rrrr-rrrr rrr-rr,
Oh, yeah
Now that I told y’all a little bit about myself
Let me tell ya a little bit about this dance
It’s real easy to do, check it out

First you play Imbued and once they have woken
They all get Vigilance; that card is broken
Drop the NRA PAC
People say, “Yo Darby, you play like you’re on crack”
That’s alright, cause it’s a V:TES addiction
It’s time for Second Sight and React With Conviction
Anyone can play this game
This is my dance, y’all, Darby K’s my name
No two people will do it the same
You got it down — when your enemy’s in pain
Equipping, unlocking, rushing
Pass around, torpin’ their crowd
And when you’re asking Adam Hulse to listen up when he’s wowed
He can’t hear you; your chainsaw’s too loud

The Darby Dance is your chance to do the Darb
(Don’t do it, Darby) everybody, uh,
Do the Darby Dance, come on, do the Darby Dance
(Oh no, don’t do it Darby) fight my army
Do the Darby Dance (uh), do the Darby Dance
(Oh, oh, not, don’t do it, Darby)
Do the Darby Dance (do ya know what they’re doin’?)
Do the Darby Dance (they’re doin’ the Darby Dance, y’all) (oh, no, don’t do it, Darby)
Uh, watch ‘em do the Darby Dance, uh, do the Darby Dance
Check it out (oh, no, don’t do it, Darby)

IM-BUED
Do the Darby Dance, do the Darby Dance
Now ISHTARRI (forced march!)
Do the Darby Dance, do the Darby Dance
GURUHI (you’re the land!)
Do the Darby Dance, just keep on doin’ the Darb
(Oh, no, don’t do it Darby)
SAMEDI (with the hags!)
Do the Darby Dance, do the, do the Darby Dance

Oh, yeah
Let’s get brutal
(Gimme the Chainsaw!)

Uh
Do the Darby Dance, do the Darby Dance
(Gimme me, gimme the Chainsaw)
Everybody do the Darby Dance, do the Darby Dance
Uh, gi-gimme the Chainsaw
Do the Darby Dance, come on and do the Darby Dance
(Gimme me, gimme the Chainsaw)
Do the Darby Dance (do ya know what they’re doin’?)
Do the Darby Dance (doin’ the Darby Dance)

Oh, yeah, gon’ and break it down (oh, don’t do it, Darby)
Uh, uh
Yeah, me, and my army (oh don’t do it, Darby)

Once again, Killiam is in the house
I’d like to send a shout out to the V:TES world
Respect to the old Methuselahs
And to the Underground
Shock G, Rest In Power

After a week or so of practicing, made final edits to the OP in accordance with what my mouth actually wanted to spit out (as opposed to what my fingers wanted to type). Calling this canon.

You can try it at home!


Thanks for reading! Cheers!
