This is the "long, but musically uncreative" (as said in one local game mag) rap from the beginning of Donkey Kong 64. The craziest part was that this was actually sung, with lyrics displayed underneath, karaoke style. No wonder it's a 256 meg cartridge =)

Cool music video is displayed on the screen while the tune is played, of course, with each of the star of the games showing their moves. Cranky Kong appears as the DJ. (And a rap video isn't a true rap video without shots of the DJ and the turntables or the mixer. =)

And who would have thought Nintendo of America could have made such vile language as "hell" slip by their watchful eyes! Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics. =) Apparently it was changed to "heck" when the song later appeared in Super Smash Bros Melee.

So they're finally here
Performing for you
If you know the words
You can join in too
Put your hands together
If you want to clap
As we take you through
This monkey Rap!

Donkey Kong!

[Donkey Kong:]

He's the leader of the bunch
You know him well
He's finally back
To kick some tail
His coconut gun
Can fire in spurts
If he shoots ya
It's gonna hurt
He's bigger, faster
and stronger too
He's the first member
of the DK Crew

[Tiny Kong:]

This Kong's got style
So listen up dudes
She can shrink in size
To suit her mood
She's quick and nimble
When she needs to be
She can float through the air
and climb up trees
If you choose her
You'll not choose wrong
With a skip and a hop
She's one cool Kong

[Lanky Kong:]

He has no style
He has no grace
This Kong has
a funny face
He can hand-stand
When he needs to
And stretch his arms out
Just for you
Inflate himself
Just like a balloon
This crazy Kong
Just digs this tune

[Diddy Kong:]

He's back again
And about time too
And this time
He's in the mood
He can fly real high
With his Jetpack on
With his pistols out
He's one tough Kong
He makes you smile
When he plays his tune
But Kremlings beware
Cause he's after you

[Chunky Kong:]

he's here for you
Its the last member
of the D-K crew
This Kong's so strong
It isn't funny
Can make a Kremling
Cry out for mummy
Can pick up a boulder
With relative ease
Makes crushing rocks
Seem such a breeze
He may move slow
He can't jump high
But this Kong is
One hell of a guy

[Spoken:] Come on Cranky!
Take it to the fridge!

Pineapple smells,
Grapes, melons, oranges
and coconut shells!
Ahh yeah!

Pineapple smells,
