[4/4, starts off slow but speeds up after 1st line] THE WORLD ENQUIRER --J. Wrabek THE RAP: I wanted to learn that old bluegrass tune about Jimmy Brown the newsboy, but I couldn’t remember the words. So it grew new ones. Then it grew new music to go along with the new words. I still haven’t learned the Jimmy Brown song. But it doesn’t matter so much anymore… 1. I sell the World Enquirer, my name is Jimmy Brown; And I know all that’s goin’ on in the bowels of our town; There’s some with ears that cannot hear, with eyes that do not see, But if you choose to learn the news you’ll get a lot from me. 2. I sell the World Enquirer, and I sell it pretty cheap; You’d be surprised the sorts of things that happen while you sleep; Liz Taylor gained a hundred pounds, the Penney’s store shut down, We almost had a nuclear war—just talk to Jimmy Brown. REPRISE: I know which politician’s gay, and which one’s on the take, And which teenager’s body’s at the bottom of the lake; And when the aliens landed, and why they’re still around; It’s in the World Enquirer—just talk to Jimmy Brown. 3. I sell the World Enquirer, come buy one if you dare: The comet strikes tomorrow, and we’d better be prepared; We could make like the dinosaurs and hide out underground— Plans are in the paper, better talk to Jimmy Brown. 4. Now, some folks watch the teevee, but the teevee doesn’t say Why there’s two-headed babies bein’ born here ev’ry day; The world is flat, and Oprah’s fat, and the salmon didn’t drown— They all got caught by aliens who look like Jimmy Brown. REPRISE: I know which politician’s gay, and which one’s on the take, And which teenager’s body’s at the bottom of the lake; And when the aliens landed, and why they’re still around; It’s in the World Enquirer—just talk to Jimmy Brown. 5. I sell the World Enquirer, this copy here’s for you; The President’s an alien (but I bet you prob’ly knew); They fluoridate the water, and it won’t be long now Before we’re turned to zombies, or my name ain’t Jimmy Brown. I sell the World Enquirer, and I’ll do it till I die; I’ve got to raise the consciousness of ev’ry passer-by; The Russians can’t take over here as long as you’re around And read the World Enquirer, and talk to Jimmy Brown. REPRISE: I know which politician’s gay, and which one’s on the take, And which teenager’s body’s at the bottom of the lake; And when the aliens landed, and why they’re still around; It’s in the World Enquirer—just talk to Jimmy Brown.
