Nice Peter as Big Bird
EpicLLOYD as Larry Bird
What's up? It's your boy from Sesame Street
Here to rap against a freak with size 17 feet!
You're like Oscar the Grouch's house because you're trash!
Walkin' 'round in green like Shrek with a mustache!
Larry Bird? More like Scary Bird, you ogre!
You look like Frankenstein's monster, but older!
You're trying to battle with a childhood hero!
This one on one is gonna end with Larry Bird, zero!
The Legend spits raw like an oyster!
'Bout to school this Muppet how to rap, so let me give you 3 pointers!
One: Don't talk about being a freak!
You got accordion legs and Bert's head for a beak!
Two: Don't dress in yellow when you come to Boston!
I'll slap your happy ass and call you Magic Johnson!
Three: You don't deserve a prize just for trying!
The only thing you taught kids is how to suck at flying!
Wow, I can't believe what I just heard!
No way you just called me the flightless Bird!
You can't jump; you can't run! Stick to the threes
'Cause the Hick from French Lick surely can't hit me!
I'm like Snuffleupagus the way I bob and weave!
I'm the number one dunking on 33!
The letter of the day is U, as in U got served,
So why don't you go ahead and try and Follow That, Bird!
Well, that was some fowl language, but I wear the crown!
You're made of turkey feathers, but you'll never be down
With the Celtics, and I don't need to talk much smack
To beat a handsy bird who bounces kids on his lap!
It's sad they never told you the deal!
Pssst, your only real friend, Snuffy, he ain't even real!
So you wanna battle me again? You better say no,
Or else you'll get another size 17 boot to the egghole!
