James Bond (Daniel Craig version):

I've beefed with Le Chiffre and No and Blofeld with the cheek scar,

But they were not as crooked and rotten as your teeth are!

I'll go balls to the Walther on this wack twat in an ascot!

Blast shots atcha like gas from the back slot of a fat Scot!

Permission from the Crown to put a scoundrel down? I've earned it!

I'm licensed to kill; you couldn't get a learner's permit!

After twenty-four films, I'm still reaching new heights!

Your third movie died; guess You Only Live Twice!

Spell my name! The ladies wanna B on D!

Any sex appeal you might have is beyond me!

I'm bespoke from my head to my toe, and after this flow, I'm done!

I only need one round: Golden gun!

Austin Powers:

You look a lot more blond in your movie, baby.

That's alright. Let's just keep it groovy, baby!

(Yeah!) Basil Exposition told me this would be boring,

But Jesus, man, even my mojo's snoring!

I've never seen such a miserable spy!

I've also never seen a man with glistening thighs!

I mean, you can't shag properly with that waxed tush!

Birds flock to the musk of my chest bush!

(Yeah!) I'll hypnotize you with a little striptease,

And then judo chop; I'm swinging on you like the sixties!

(Yeah!) You're defenseless; my rhymes can't be deflected!

You're like all the sex I've ever had: unprotected!

(Yeah!) People want a hero with a little personality!

No one wants to sit through your gritty reality!

Maybe Q can craft some new plot lines!

You made Thunderball two bloody times!

I'm one of a kind; you're always getting remade!

You can't touch me; double oh, behave!

James Bond (Daniel Craig version):

(Ugh!) I can't believe I'm wasting my time with this clown!

I should be on an island with a fucking model by now!

Sipping dry martinis and peeling off bikinis,

Not rapping against Swedish penis-pumping weenies!

Yeah, that's not mine…

I didn't say I was finished! I'm sick of your silly gimmicks!

I'm the best spy in the business; just ask all the critics!

And I've been through hell, so yeah, I'm a bit of a cynic,

But I'm the original model that your frilly ass mimics!

James Bond (Sean Connery version):

I wouldn't exactly call you original…

It's the most prominent dominant bomb spy, so pay homage!

Handing out ass-whippings, I'm on some real James Bondage!

Your performance doesn't stir me, and I'm certainly not shaken!

If I wanted shitty acting in my action film, I'd go and watch Taken!

I see your modern gadgets, and I piss on them all!

I don't need a Q to break your balls!

I'm the granddad of the brand millions of fans have been sold on!

You're so far up on my nuts I should call you Bond. Gold Bond.

(Yeah, um…) Could I get back in my rap, please?

*slap* Rap these, you velvety hack! Jeez!

James Bond (Daniel Craig version):

It's the movie business, and you've had your six!

The world has had quite enough rug-wearing misogynists!

Austin Powers:

Yeah, to be honest, you are a bit rapey.

I mean, I like to swing, but Dr. No means no, baby.

James Bond (Sean Connery version):

Oh please, I'm an extraordinary gentleman! I'm distinguished!

If they made a Mini-Me, they'd have to cast Peter Dinklage!

James Bond (Daniel Craig version):

Or maybe they should cast a Bond who's actually English!

James Bond (Sean Connery version):

*slap* Why, pussy, aren't you the cunning linguist?

James Bond (Daniel Craig version):

As a matter of fact, I've got a knack for licking old cunts!

After I beat you, I'll kick the shit out of the man who does your stunts!

James Bond (Sean Connery version):

Now, you listen here, you little duck-faced runt!

I'm all in! I'm ready to die any day that you want!

Austin Powers:

There's no competition in a battle of best looks.

Your man-scaped ass can't beat my chest bush!

You're too clean; you look like you bleach and wax your tush!

You're like a broken record…groovy baby

I love your outfit baby, that'd go nice with my bed

Especially that shag rug you've got on your head

Is that all, have you had it?

I think Q should have made you a rapping gadget

I'm not impressed by your suit or those groovy shoes

You look like you escaped an episode of Scooby-Doo

I put the "oh, oh" in double 0-0-7, you're all libidos and tuxedos

James Bond (Daniel Craig version):

I'm cool and distinguished, stunning and English

When I rap against Pussy Galore's, I become a cunning linguist

Get off my nuts! What are you, Gold Bond?

Quit jacking my style, dude! You need to hold on.

The only thing allowed on my nuts is Gold Bond.

James Bond (Sean Connery version):

Without me, the show never goes on!

You're on my nuts so much, I should call you Gold Bond!

All up on my nuts like Bond…Gold Bond.

While I save the UK, you spoof me with goofy silly stuff

Once I spit the fill I leave you ruffled like your frilly cuffs

Unknown rappers:

The way you treat your women is simply despicable

Your movies are like YouTube ads…mostly skippable

I'm taking out Brosnans, Moores and Daltons.

My car's the tits. Could call my Aston Martin Dolly Parton.

I wish I had a Moneypenny for every time you got creepy

Your teeth look like someone pissed on a whiter picket fence

My member will never be as desensitized as your audiences
