Piano Hip Hop Remix (lyrics below). This is my first attempt rapping while playing the piano, haha. Excuse the bad sound/video quality. It was filmed on a cell phone.

If you want me to do more stuff like this (or if you don't, lol) let me know!


Jack is a young dude, compared to most of his friends and peers
But Jack matured fast, and he's been setting trends for years
Jack is a big boy, he's large in circumference..
And got a head more hard than a pumkin is

Despite his age, he's never missing in confidence
Its fair enough, cuz hes inextricably competent
He's both intelligent, and, physically polished
Like a heavyweight fighter..with infinite knowledge

But there's a problem and he don't like to admit it
Jack thinks he's a cop, but his license is missing
He turns up as an uninvited addition....
..comes in your house, and tries to change the life that you're living

And even though we often imitate his mannerisms..
..we ARE the symptoms of his bad decisions..
I think its universal to say we've been screwed enough..
This ain't the Jack we used to love

(P.s. The whole song is a metaphor, and Jack = USA)
