Big Daddy's Rap

There was a recent convention of church leaders in Oakland, CA to discuss the decaying of society's morals and how to put the church back in to the lives of those of the innercity. They concluded that the Church has lost touch with the changing world. The Bible was difficult for them to comprehend, so how could they expect laymen to fully understand this Great Book. Following the lead set by the local School Board, the Men of Cloth felt that Ebonics would be the key to reaching this large, lost flock. Here is the first translation of the Holy Scriptures in the newly discovered language of Ebonics.

Big Daddy's RapThe Lord's Prayer
Yo, Bid Daddy upstairs,
You be chillin
So be yo hood
You be sayin' it, I be doin' it
In this here hood and yo's
Gimme some eats
And cut me some slack, Blood
Sos I be doin' it to dem dat diss me
don't be pushing me into no jive
and keep dem Crips away
'Cause you always be da Man


Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespasses against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever.
