[Ricky Walters] Ladies, and gentlemen... and lowlifes It is with outstanding pleasure that we are here to present tonight... Slick Rick, the Ruler! And MC Ricky D!! Doing their smash hit, "Mona Lisa," you know, like the picture? Anyway, I'd like to take this time out to bow before his divine majesty
[Ricky] Oh your majesty... [Slick] Hmm? [Ricky] Can I kiss your hand? [Slick] Mm-hmm [Ricky] (kisses his hand loudly) [Slick] Enough! [Ricky] Come your highness.. they await you..
[Slick Rick] Well, it was one of those days -- not much to do I was chillin downtown, with my old school crew I went into a store -- to buy a slice of pizza And bumped into a girl, her name was Mona -- what? Mona Lisa (what?) *singing* Mona Lisa, so men made you.. YouknowhatI'msayin? So I said, "Excuse me, dear my gosh, you look nice! Put away your money I'll buy that slice!" She said, "Thanks - I'd rather a slice of you I'm just kidding, but that's awfully nice of you" The compliment showed she had a mind in her And when I smiled (PING!) I almost blinded her She said, "Great Scott! Are you a thief? Seems like you have a mouth full of gold teeth" Ha-ha, hah! Had to find that funny So I said, "No child, I work hard for the money And calling me a thief? Please! Don't even try it (Right!) Sit down eat your slice of pizza, and be quiet" She almost got cut short -- you know, scissors She tried to disrespect WHO?! The Grand Wizard Me! "Well what's your name, son?" "MC Ricky D," but not to be so harsh I said to Mona Li-hee "I'm.. sorry and I know that's low class (uhh, yeah) Please sit, and tell me a little about your past" She said, "Well I got courage, and I don't like porridge (uh-huh) I've never been to college, but I've got crazy knowledge (uh-huh) Over eighteen and my eyes are green (uh-huh) I wear more gold than that man on A-Team (uh-huh, uh-huh) Trim, slim, (yeah) and I'm also light skinned Best believe Mona's a virgin" A virgin?! Honey needed a slap She tried to tell me she's a virgin -- with her yea wide gap I said, "It don't matter, see, I'm not picky (word) Let me spell my name out for you, it's Ricky: R -- Ravishing I -- Impress C -- Courageous; so careless K -- for the Kangols which I've got that I wear everyday and Y -- why not? To fight's not right that I recite and I'm.. quite polite like Walter Cronkite" Well, just about then, Trevor my friend came in He said, "Hey Rick, don't you know playin with these snakes is a sin?!?" He grabbed me by my shirt and pulled me right out the store He said, "I don't want to see you playin with these lowlifes no more! Now come along, we have a party to attend With some real mature women and some more of her friends" He hailed down a cab and he waited for a minute And as the cab came, he thrusted me in it! And as we were leavin and drivin along I could hear a melody as Mona sang a song
(excerpt from "Walk On By" [D. Warwick]) "If you see me walking down the street And I start to cry.. each time we meet.. Walk on by.. walk on by.. Foolish pride That's all that I have left, so, let me hide The pain and the hurt that you gave me When you said goodbye.. You walked on by.."
