list season: the top ten mf doom lyrics of 2005.

i've made it no secret that mf doom is my favorite rapper. as a fan of lyricism, his idiosyncratic and obscure pop culture references are something i live for. although he 2005 collaboration with dangerdoom was the best rap release of 2005, it was far from the villian's best work. that should tell you what i've already known for a while: a lackluster effort from metalface is still better than most rap aritsts best efforts. here are the best lyrics from the mouse and the mask, as well as his guests appearances on records by rza and de la soul:

10. "cheers, is that your beer kid? then swallow it/or get chased by the sandman on some apollo shit"

"scared of a bunch of water/then get out the rain/order a rapper for lunch/and spit out the chain"

8. "tears burn your eyes worse than fresh s-curl sauce"

7. "cornier and phonier than a play-fight/take two of these and don't phone me on the late night"

6. "show love to others/we all brothers like the bee gees"

5. "drag him by his mic cord and leave him holdin' the bag"

4. "act like you know like toucan sam and them/he eat rappers like part of a complete breakfast/they rhymes ain't worth the weight of they cheap necklace"

3. "got it sewn up like thread 'n bobbin' bonus pack"

2. "closet full of skeletons and terry cloth kangols"

1. "they raps ain't got no gift like a lonely christmas"

Bigups, MF Doom is my favorite emcee too.
My favorite Doom song, lyrically:
"Livin' off borrowed time, the clock tick faster
That'd be the hour they knock the slick blaster
Dick Dastardly and Muttley with sick laughter
A gun fight and they come to cut the mixmaster
I-C-E cold, nice to be old
Y2G steed twice to threefold
He sold scrolls, lo and behold
Know who's the illest ever like the greatest story told
Keep your glory, gold and glitter
For have half of his niggaz'll take him out the picture
The other half is rich and don't mean shit-ta
Villain a mixture between both with a twist of liquor
Chase it with more beer, taste it like truth or dare
When he have the mic it's like the place get like: 'Ah yeah!'
It's like they know what's 'bout to happen
Just keep ya eye out, like 'aye, aye captain'
Is he still a fly guy clappin' if nobody ain't hear it
And can they testify from inner spirit
In living, the true gods
Givin' y'all nothing but the lick like two broads
Got more lyrics than the church got 'Ooh Lords'
And he hold the mic and your attention like two swords
Or even one with two blades on it
Hey you, don't touch the mic like it's AIDS on it
It's like the end to the means
Fucked type of message that sends to the fiends
That's why he brings his own needles
And get more cheese than Doritos, Cheetos or Fritos..
Slip like Freudian
Your first and last step to playin' yourself like accordion
When he had the mic you don't go next
Leaving pussy cats like wild hoes need Kotex
Exercise index won't need Boflex
And won't take the one with no skinny legs like Joe Tex"

that Joe Tex reference brings a tear to my eye.

"accordion" is great, like most of all doom's stuff, but i'm a really big fan of "figaro".

everything up to "not supposed to overdose no-doz pills", is the greatest rap lyrics i've ever heard in my life.

"i told ya, on some get rich shit/as he gets older, he gets colder than a witch tit."
