4. Keyword Rap

August 3, 2011

.

This is the Hey! Ho! Moment.

You write down the keyword lyrics first and riff. You don’t have to be good. 

But you must never smile. It is a rule. Rappers don’t smile. They are some of the most miserable millionaires on earth.See Eminem and 50 Cent below.

Here is an example playing with Square Roots.

eg.

Whatcha gotta know ..

Whatcha gotta know 

surds .. absurd .. surds …

√2 you do.

√3 happy

√4 Want more?

√5 Ha! Ha! Ha! Staying alive. ( A little Bee Gee Riff there.)

Chorus: Hey! Ho!

Whatcha gotta know ..

Whatcha gotta know 

surds .. absurd .. surds …

√6 clickety clicks.

√7 Go to heaven.

√8 Don’t be late.

√9 Divine.

Chorus: Hey! Ho!

The trick is to get the kids to stand together and swing their hands up in the air and across chanting HEY! HO! for the chorus.

If you want to see rapping it is done Google: True Live. Keep Myself Awake

Some kid may take pity on you and do the Keyword Rap with beat box sound effects for you.

IMAGIN(ARY) NUMBERS

Based on Imagine by John Lennon

Imagin-ery numbers

There’re easy if you try

No real number

You have to call it i

Imagin-ery problems

Math’s so weird today…

Imagine there’s no maths class

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to solve or work out

And no home work too

Imagine all the teachers

Staring at the sky …

Chorus:

You may say I’m a dreamer

One day I hope you see

This Oh! so weird world with i

Sure beats reality.

It’s a Wonderful Surd   √

……………………………………………………………………………………

……………………………………………………………………………………………

Based on It’s a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

 ……………………………………………………………………………………

I see √7, √3 too

I see √5, also √2

And I think to myself, what a wonderful surd.

I see sweet √4, which is only 2

The craziest square roots, you can not undo

And I think to myself, what a wonderful surd
