Inspiration

UPDATED:

I rewrote some portions to make it more closely follow the original…

R: Kickoff Saturday, wake up in the early mornin’
R: Call Bobby just to see how he’s doin’
B: Hello?
R: What up Bob!
B: Yo Elroy, what’s cracking?
R: You thinking what I’m thinking?
B: Kickoff
2: Then it’s happening
B: First the robot needs control with odometry
R: Lets google sourceforge and utilize some ANSI C!
B: No doubt that website is all about sharing!
R: I love open source like a wheel loves a bearing!

B: It’s two,
R: No six,
B: No twelve,
2: Pounds overweight!
R: That robot’s needs to diet
B: I’m drilling through that metal plate!

Where’s the kickoff playing?
At International dude
Well, lets hit up Yahoo maps to find the dopest route
I prefer MapQuest (Thats a good one too)
Google maps in the best (True that)
Double True!

R: To the TRC headquarters
B: What’s the game gonna be?
R: Lets get moving now, man.
B: Like Stack Attack, maybe?

–Chorus (repeating, switching off)–
Its the kickoff (What!) Of the F.R.C.!
Done by FIRSTWA (Who?) and the T.R.C.!
Its the kickoff (What!) Of the F.R.C.!
Done by FIRSTWA (Who?) and the T.R.C.!
–End Chorus–

R: Hit of Laird Plastics, TAP is overpriced
B: Got the purchase order,
R: gonna spend it all thrice!
B: Don’t want the judges to get suspicious
R: Aluminum and polycarb equals totally auspicious!
B: Walk up to the counter, pull out the P.O.
R: Girl actred like she’d never seen the T.R.C. before!
2: Its all about the drill press baby
B: Throw the goods in the trunk and we off like crazy

–Chorus (repeating, switching off)–
Its the kickoff (What!) Of the F.R.C.!
Done by FIRSTWA (Who?) and the T.R.C.!
Its the kickoff (What!) Of the F.R.C.!
Done by FIRSTWA (Who?) and the T.R.C.!
–End Chorus–

R: Roll up to the IPAC. Grab two crates full of good times.
R: You can call us R&B from the way we’re throwing down the rhymes
B: Parked in out seats, robotics trivia is key
R: What award did we win out-of-state in ‘03?
B: We answered so fast and then we let it slip
R: Now everyone knows it was entrepreneurship
B: Turn off our cell phones
R: We won’t talk to our clients
2: We’re about to learn of an engineered world of science!

–Chorus (repeating, switching off)–
Its the kickoff (What!) Of the F.R.C.!
Done by FIRSTWA (Who?) and the T.R.C.!

While reading my Introduction to Digital Design Textbook this morning before class, I was hit with a flash of inspiration. To understand, you must first watch Saturday Night Live’s Diginal Short “Chronic (what) cles of Narnia.” My version is called the “TRC Rap.” It was originally written for a cast of Bobby and myself, but it would also work well with Dan (Marsh or Moretti) or anyone else whose name has one- and two-syllable versions.

R: is a line I say
B: is a line Bobby (or whoever) would say
2: is a line both say

R: Kickoff Saturday, wake up in the early mornin’
R: Call Bobby just to see how he’s doin’
B: Hello? R: Whatup Bob! B: Yo McElroy, what’s crackin’?
R: You thinking what I’m thinking?
B: Kickoff (2: Man its happening)
B: But first my mini sumo needs to control its electricity
R: Lets google sourceforge and utilize some ANSI C!
B: Man that website is all about sharing!
R: I love open source like a wheel loves a bearing!

R: Hit of Laird Plastics, TAP is overpriced
B: Got the purchase order, R: gonna spend it all thrice!
B: Don’t want the judges to get suspicious
R: Aluminum and polycarb equals totally auspicious!
B: Walk up to the counter, pull out the P.O.
R: Girl actred like she’d never seen the T.R.C. befo’!
2: Its all about the regional champs dude
B: Throw the goods in the trunk, now we’re in a good mood
–Chorus (repeating, switching off)–
Its the kickoff (What!) Of the F.R.C.!
Done by FIRSTWA (Who?) and the T.R.C.!
–End Chorus–
R: Roll up to the IPAC (B: Give a shout out to the Titan Times)
R: You can call us R&B from the way we’re throwing down the rhymes
B: Sit down in the theater, robotics trivia is key
R: What award did we win out-of-state in ’03?
B: We both knew the answer, because we are so hip
R: But other teams didn’t know that it was entrepreneurship
B: Turn off our cell phones, we won’t talk to our clients
R: We’re about to learn of an engineered world of science!
–Chorus (repeating, switching off)–
Its the kickoff (What!) Of the F.R.C.!
Done by FIRSTWA (Who?) and the T.R.C.!
–End Chorus–

How’s that for creativity?
