I wonder if when people listen to this song on their oldies station they think that the “Lyrical Jesse James” named in the song is the one who used to make ice cream machines out of golf carts on TLC and cheated on Sandra Bullock with a chick who looked like a crumpled up comic book.  When the song came out, everyone thought of the cowboy one.  Come to think of it, there were a lot of movies about cowboys in the 90’s, and a lot of movies about baseball, too.  What’s that about?

Eh, I don’t know why you let me go on these tangents.  I need to stay on point.  “It’s gettin’ kinda hectic.” should be a saying that comes up way more often than it does now.  I don’t know when the last time I ever heard anyone say it.  Or if I ever heard anyone say it if they weren’t actually singing or referring to this song.  So I guess what I am trying to say is that we should make this a thing.  I can try to say it at least once a day.  Maybe more if things are really getting kind of hectic.  Incidentally, is “kinda” an actual word or just a phonetic spelling of how everyone but jerks say “kind of”?

Gah, I said no more tangents.  Video and lyrics after the jump.

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah
Gettin’ kinda heavy

It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic

Like the crack of the whip I snap attack
Front to back in this thing called rap
Dig it like a shovel rhyme devil
On a heavenly level
Bang the bass turn up the treble
Radical mind day and night all the time
Seven to fourteen wise divine
Maniac brainiac winning the game
I’m the lyrical Jesse James

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh yeah

It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic

Quality I possess something I’m fresh
When my voice goes through the rest
Of the microphone that I am holdin’
Copywritten lyrics so they can’t be stolen
If they are snap
Don’t need the police to try to save them
Your voice will seize so please stay off my back
Or I will attack and you don’t want that

I’ve got the power
He’s gonna break my heart
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts
He’s gonna break my heart
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts
He’s got the power oh-oh-oh-oh

I’ve got the power
He’s gonna break my heart
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts
He’s gonna break my heart
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts
He’s got the power oh-oh-oh-oh

I’ve got the power
