  • All right!
    Stop whatcha doin'
    'cause I'm about to ruin
    The image and the style that ya used to.
    I look funny,
    But yo I'm makin' money, see
    So yo world I hope you're ready for me.
    Now gather round
    I'm the new fool in town
    And my sound's laid down by the Underground.
    I drink up all the Hennessey ya got on ya shelf
    So just let me introduce myself
    My name is Humpty, pronounced with a Umpty.
    Yo ladies, oh how I like to hump thee.
    And all the rappers in the top ten--please allow me to bump thee.
    I'm steppin' tall, y'all,
    And just like Humpty Dumpty
    You're gonna fall when the stereos pump me.
    I like to rhyme,
    I like my beats funky,
    I'm spunky. I like my oatmeal lumpy.
    I'm sick wit dis, straight gangsta mack
    But sometimes I get ridiculous
    I'll eat up all your crackers and your licorice
    Hey yo fat girl, come here--are ya ticklish?
    Yeah, I called ya fat.
    Look at me, I'm skinny
    It never stopped me from gettin' busy
    I'm a freak
    I like the girls with the boom
    I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom
    I'm crazy.
    Allow me to amaze thee.
    They say I'm ugly but it just don't faze me.
    I'm still gettin' in the girls' pants
    And I even got my own dance

    The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump
    Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump
    Do the Humpty Hump, just watch me do the Humpty Hump
    Do ya know what I'm doin', doin' the Humpty Hump
    Do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump

    People say "Yo, Humpty, you're really funny lookin'"
    That's all right 'cause I get things cookin'
    Ya stare, ya glare, ya constantly try to compare me
    But ya can't get near me
    I give 'em more, see, and on the floor, be ,
    All the girls they adore me
    Oh yes, ladies, I'm really bein' sincere
    'cause in a 69 my humpty nose will tickle ya rear.
    My nose is big, uh-uh I'm not ashamed
    Big like a pickle, I'm still gettin' paid
    I get laid by the ladies, ya know I'm in charge,
    Both how I'm livin' and my nose is large
    I get stoopid, I shoot an arrow like Cupid,
    I use a word that don't mean nothin', like looptid
    I sang on Doowhutchalike, and if ya missed it,
    I'm the one who said just grab 'em in the biscuits
    Also told ya that I like to bite
    Well, yeah, I guess it's obvious, I also like to write.
    All ya had to do was give Humpty a chance
    And now I'm gonna do my dance.


    Oh, yeah, that's the break, y'all
    Let me hear a little bit of that bass groove right here
    Oh, yeah!
    Now that I told ya 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 I limp to the side like my leg was broken
    Shakin' and twitchin' kinda like I was smokin'
    Crazy wack funky
    People say ya look like M.C. Hammer on crack, Humpty
    That's all right 'cause my body's in motion
    It's supposed to look like a fit or a convulsion
    Anyone can play this game
    This is my dance, y'all, Humpty Hump's my name
    No two people will do it the same
    Ya got it down when ya appear to be in pain
    Humpin', funkin', jumpin',
    Jig around, shakin' ya rump,
    And when the dude a chump pump points a finger like a stump
    Tell him step off, I'm doin' the Hump.


    Black people, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump
    White people, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump
    Puerto Ricans, do the Humpty Hump, just keep on doin' the hump
    Samoans, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump

    Let's get stoopid!


    Oh, yeah, come on and break it down

    Once again, the Underground is in the house
    I'd like to send a shout out to the whole world,
    Keep on doin' the Humpty Dance,
    And to the ladies,
    Peace and humptiness forever
