PEACEY P: {normal voice} You biscuithead, you ain't featurin' me!

COACH Z: I said accidentally featuring Peacey P!

I'm the lyricbolical Coach Z,
I like my ointments topical most-ly,
And if you got the itchy toes, then come see me,
I got a rap song, featuring Peacey P!

PEACEY P: My name is P, comma, Peace-ay
I like to eat my bacon all grease-ay
I'm the best guest rapper in the music biz,
I ain't even know whose song this is!

COACH Z: {speaking} It's mine! I thought I made that abundantly clear! Here comes the hook!

COACH Z AND PEACEY P:{singing} R-A-P-S-O-N-G, yes,

PEACEY P: Much money, mo' money, cash money, drop!

COACH Z: I'm the rhyme janitor wringin' out my mop!

PEACEY P: Stop it, fool, you're crampin' my style!

COACH Z: I'll sprinkle wack MCs with my sawdust pile!

PEACEY P: Listen up straight, y'all biscuitheads,
I'd like a piece o' dry toast wit' two scrambled eggs!
Order o' hash browns, make 'em extra crisp,
A glass o' orange juice an' a bowl o' cheese grits!

COACH Z: Oh, dag, that man has just ordered breakfast in the middle of my rap song!

COACH Z AND PEACEY P: R-A-P-S-O-N-G, yes,
Yes, y'all, and we don't flake,

COACH Z: Here comes Tenerence Love with an R&B break!

TENERENCE LOVE: My name is Tenerence Love,
Plus my name is Tenerence Love,
Divided by my name is Tenerence Love,
Equals my name is Tenaaay-erence Love!
Remainder three!

COACH Z AND PEACEY P: R-A-P-S-O-N-G, yes,
Yes, y'all, and we don't stap,
Coach Z and Peacey P cold rappity-rap!

COACH Z: Oh, your payment. How's about a nice slice of chin strap pizza? {holds up a pizza slice that has a chin strap on it}
