LET’S RAP

“Write-a-Rap” Rap

You can rap about the ceiling, you can rap about the floor,

You can rap about the window, write a rap on the door.

You can rap about things that are mean or pleasant,

You can rap about wrapping up a Christmas present.

Hey, everybody, let’s write a rap.

First there’s a rhythm you’ll need to clap.

Keep that rhythm and keep in time,

‘cause a rap needs a rhythm and a good strong rhyme.

The rhyme keeps coming in the very same place

So don’t fall behind and try not to race.

The rhythm keeps the tap on a regular beat

And the rhyme helps to wrap your rap up neat.

You can rap about a mystery hidden in a box,

You can rap about a pair of smelly old socks.

You can rap about something going on and on and on and on…

But when you think there just ain’t nothing left to say…

You can wrap it all up and put it away.

It’s a rap. It’s a rap. It’s a rap rap rap rap RAP!

“But what’ll we write?” I hear you shout.

There ain’t no rules for what a rap’s about.

You can rap about a robber, you can rap about a king,

You can rap about a chewed up piece of string…

(well, you can rap about almost … anything!)

Gran,Can You Rap?

Gran was in her chair she was taking a nap

When I tapped her on the shoulder to see if she could

rap

Gran, can you rap? Can you rap? Can you Gran?

And she opened one eye and she said to me,

Man

I’m the best rapping Gran this world’s ever seen

I’m a tip-top, slip-slap, rap-rap

queen

She rapped down the garden she rapped down the street

The neighbours all cheered and they tapped their

feet

She rapped through the traffic lights as they turned red

As she rapped round the corner this is what she

said,

I’m the best rapping Gran this world’s ever seen

I’m a flip-flop, hip-hop, rap- rap

queen

Rap Starters

The disco sheep danced down the street

Can you do a rap? Can you do a rap?

I wish these rhymes weren’t so hard

Dad was sitting there drinking his tea

The hippopotamus was sitting in the water

My rhyme is more solid than a rock

My new car is slower than a snail

He stomped his feet to a disco beat

Can you do a rap if you wear my cap?

They make me feel like a lump of lard!

The cat sprang up onto his knee

Wondering about a job as a porter

It’s as safe as a door with a lock

I think I’ve really bought a nail!
