The Rap lyrics

The Rap

Rockies:
Hey you - who, me?
Yes, you - race you!
Hey you - who, me?
Yes, you - race you!
Rusty's gonna race, Rusty's gonna race
Rusty's gonna race, Rusty's gonna race
Race in the final
Rusty's gonna race -

Greaseball:
No he ain't, no he ain't

Belle:
Who says?

Greaseball:
I say
He ain't gonna race

Belle:
But Poppa won a place, Poppa won a place
Poppa won a place, Poppa won a place
A place in the final
Poppa can't take it, he's half dead
Chosen Rusty to go instead

Belle & Rockies:
Hey you - yes you!
Rusty can race you!
Hey you - yes you!
Rusty can race you!

Dinah:
Yes, let him race you

Greaseball:
Shut it, Dinah

Dinah:
Let him race you in the final

Buffy:
Let him race, what harm can it do?

Ashley:
You know he's no match for you!

Coaches:
Let him race!

Greaseball:
No!

Electra:
No, no question
Won't even listen to your suggestion
Pearl and me will never be seen
Racing against yesterday's machine

Components:
Electra won't share a circuit with him
He needs water and coal and still wears a chimney
No style

Pearl:
Now that's not fair
What do you prove if he ain't there?

Ashley:
Right

Buffy:
Yeah

Rockies:
That's right

Greaseball:
That's true
Okay Pearl, I'm with you

Pearl:
Hey you - yes you!
Rusty can race you!

All:
Hey you - yes you!
Rusty can race you!

CB:
Must be a steamer
Poppa was a steamer
Rusty is a steamer
He has a right

Rockies:
Who'll go with him?
Can't take a heavy truck

Dustin:
Look what happened

CB:
I'll go, I'm light

Electra:
No!

Bobo:
No!

Flat top:
No!

Dustin:
Why not?
Leaving out steam trains isn't fair
Steam trains ought to have their share

Electra:
No!

Greaseball:
No!

Flat top:
No I hate steam trains
Don't look the same and have different smoke
Eat strange things, keep the rhythm going all night
Had some next door - just a joke

Poppa:
Steam will beat you
Steam will race you
Hey you - yes you!
Rusty can race you!

All:
Hey you - yes you!
Rusty can race you!

Electra:
No!

Bobo:
No! I was second
I should have won, I'm incredibly fast
Nobody beats me, everybody beats him
Where's the point?
He'll only be last

Dinah:
He has a point there

All:
Shut it, Dinah
(argue)
Will somebody listen to what I say?

Electra:
Quiet!
Yes, CB?

CB:
You ought to take on Rusty and me
If the French train runs and I'm not in it
Could go wrong at the last minute
Trust me, I'll sort it out
Tell you later what it's all about

Greaseball:
Let him race against Pearl and me
If he wants, he can have CB
You take Dinah

Electra:
That'd be good

Both:
That's how it's gonna be, understood?

Dinah:
I don't wanna

All:
Shut it, Dinah

Greaseball:
Electra, all this fuss you've made
Don't tell me you're a little bit afraid?

Components:
Electra...

Electra:
Hey, you!

Rusty:
Who, me?

Electra:
Yes, you - race you!

Electra & Components:
Hey, you - yes you
Electra's gonna race you!
Hey, you - yes you

Electra:
I'll erase you, you'll be last
The future's a duty to rub out the past

All:
Hey you, yes you, hey you, yes you
Hey you, yes you, hey you, yes you
Hey you, yes you
Rusty
Hey you, yes you
Race you - race you!
