In this thread, we shall translate the lyrics of contemporary rap music to be suitable for a gregorian choir, or a church sermon.

I choose I like Big Butts:

"I prefer monumentous gluteus maximi; a lie I shall not utter
Fellow brethren, thou shalt utter admission,
that a female, be it the case that she enters,
and furthermore; be it the case that her medium section is in possesion
of a circumfrance most miniscule, and, with a global form before you,
It shall be that, due to this image, arousal shall occur"

*Points way to my Shakespearean Rick Astley blog*

Edit: Here's my rendition of Tupac - Changes I wrote down a while ago.

This way gentlemen
It is my view that society hasn't altered drastically. After stirring from my slumber in the glorious morning,
I thoughtfully ask oneself: "Is this life working for me? Or should I bally well hang myself?"
I'm rather downtrodden at the thought of ones mediocre balance, and to top it all off, I am a gentlemen of African origin
My bowels are clenched with eternal hunger, this then drives me to pickpocketing the locals for some form of financial support for my lack of appetence.
The local law enforcement, the Peeler's, aren't too bothered by my presence, and are uninclined to help me out, and the local yarn is that if they were to beat me because of my negroid origins that they will be treated with such aggrandisement and laud that they will be revered as an exemplar of their beat.
It has also come to my mind that nobody is the least bit bothered about the monitorisation and control of illegal substances, and that if they were to come into the hands of some poor street urchin then he would no longer be eligible for state handouts and free gruel, which would be beneficial to Downing Street.
The merchantising of opiates is firstly discussed within the black community, and any disagreements are settled by a publicised pistol duel.
A good consort of mine, and a community pillar, Hubert, was against this "barbaric" pistol sport. Ironically enough, the poor bugger was killed in one.
I myself have grand admiration for all of my black friends, alas, we cannot advance in this world if we both are pulling in different directions and petty fighting amongst our clansmen.
We must share our thoughts and ideas with each other in a polite, forum like manner, and maybe changes will be noticed and improve on our currently impoverished lifestyle.
I wish to be seen as an ally, as an experience gentlemen who you can dissert with, instead of an unreachable interloper.
I wholeheartedly believe that this method is the best way to help out those less fortunate than myself, and that we can make real differences.
How can an associate be taken from this world if you are there to help his plight?
I constantly reminisce of my childhood, and how carefree it was playing hoops without any of these dilemmas that face me here in this day and age.
Alas, a dream is a dream and I shall have to make do with the resources and materials at my disposal to better the lives of my people.

dude, post that shit, that's awesome

I wish to point out I was pretty drunk when I wrote it, and that LordBishek wrote all the bits that actually sound like Shakespeare. I'm pretty sure I made up random words during it

I also just noticed that the latin medical term for the buttocks is not "buteus maximus", but rather "gluteus maximus"
not that easy to write this way

(can't touch this by MC Hammer)

Halt! for 'tis time for ye Hammer!

withe a mind with which I can rhyme and two feet with which to dance
it feeleth goode, when ye knowe you are in vogue
an amazinge man from ye towne of ye oake
and I be knowne as such
and this be one beat on which you canst not lay ye finger.

I read the Tupac one in a Baldrick style voice.

'My Lord, I 'ave a cunning plan...'
Time is a great teacher. Unfortunatly, it kills all of its pupils.

O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

I believe someone around here a while ago had lyrics like these to the milkshake song. I lol'd hard when I read them.

Anyway...

In West Philadelphia, delivered and elevated
The recreation area is the location I spended a relatively large amount of my days
Congealing out maximuming, relaxing all low temperature
And all shooting some basketball outside of the educational facilities
When a small amount of individuals of the male gender
Who were vertical to none benefits
Commenced creating detriments in my local urban surroundings
I got in one comparitively inferior engagement and mineth mother became frightened
She said "You are migrating with your parent's sister and parent's brother in Bel Air"

this thread could use genres other than rap- may I put forward some Grunge in the form of About a Girl by Nirvana.

I needeth an easye companion
I do, with an ear, which I maye borrowe
I concur, this shoe is the correct size for ye
I do, but ye havst a clue

I shall take the advantage, whilst ye hange me to dehydrate
but I canst not see ye ev'ry night
for nothinge

I be standinge in ye line
I be hoping that ye havst ye time
I be choosing of the numbers to

Yeah that's old english.

You can't just write out a song with long words in replacement for the short ones and be like "olololol I'm speaking old english"

No. You are not.

Soulja Boi is somewhat begun
Observe him impart a rotatory oscillation, regard him as he revolves,
Again, see him spin to create the aforementioned motion, Soulja Boi,
And, thereafter, *ahem* Superman that woman of questionable virtue.

OR

Soulja Boi beginneth forthwith!
Espie me cranketh, wondereth thee at my masterful arte of rolling,
Nary but twice wilt thou look upon this cranking, Soulja Boi,
Fie! I exhort thee to Superman yonder wench!

Very well, my friend
Continue with your rolling, child
Mayhap you knoweth what hour it is

Enter and exit
Ascend and descend
Reverseth, reverseth
Pray explain your actions forthwith

Inhale, exhale
Ascend and descend
Reverseth, reverseth
Pray explain your actions forthwith

meh, it was the best i could think of, even i'm not impressed lol

You're doing it wrong!

Olde English is nothing like what you're writing. Olde English is barely comparable to modern English.

Example of Olde English (from wiki):

Þa cydde man me, þæt us mara hearm to fundode, þonne us wel licode: and þa for ic me sylf mid þam mannum þe me mid foron into Denmearcon, þe eow mæst hearm of com: and þæt hæbbe mid godes fultume forene forfangen, þæt eow næfre heonon forð þanon nan unfrið to ne cymð, þa hwile þe ge me rihtlice healdað and min lif byð.

EDIT: nvm... someone beat me to it.
