Scene 21.The Finale
The final rappers conclude before final bows as introduced by the faculty host.
Alright, already the show goes on.
All night, till the morning we dream so long.
Anybody ever wonder,
when they would see the sun up?
Just remember when you come up,
The show goes on! (x2)
Have you ever had a thought about Pangea?
Don’t that make you wonder about Wegener’s idea?
They question your theory and
put pressure up on your back,
They be asking about your thoughts,
Hope you slip up off your path.
I don’t switch up, I just laugh.
Put my mind up on the thoughts.
Unaffected by the threats,
and keep striving for the best.
See that’s how that thought made me.
That’s how my daddy raised me,
That glittering may not be gold.
Don’t let no body play me.
You may be my critic,
but you’re never gonna sway me.
Go on and put your hands up,
when times are hard you stand up.
Pangea is the Plan,
that’s the plan I have trust.
So even if they ban us,
they’ll never slow my plans up!
One in the air for Harry Hess.
Two in the air he gave his best.
Three in the air for proving the test.
Four for the theory that beat out the rest.
None for the critics trying to hold me back.
Five in the air for TCU
Yeah yeah, the thought is yours,
I was once that little boy.
Terrified of the World,
Now I’m on a World tour.
I will give up everything,
even start a world war.
For these theories and thoughts,
I’m rapping round’ the World for!
Africa to Asia,
Europe then I detour.
North & South America Antartica, Australia.
Continental Drift is the reason for the Shift…
I hope you understand know that this is not a myth.
No matter what you’re in to.
No matter what you been through.
No matter what you see when you look outside your window.
Brown grass, green grass, picket fence or barbed wire.
You never put em’ down you just lift your arms higher.
Raise em higher til you tire and let them know you are there.
That you’re struggling and surviving and you’re gonna persevere
Yeah! Aint nobody leaving, Nobody going home.
And if they turn the lights out the thought is going on!
