Get street in the shop, dudes! Just thought everyone might enjoy a break from the ordinary and watch the rap that’s sweeping the nation. Well, er, yeah…the Woodworking Rap! Haha…enjoy. The beat is made with the actual sounds from my actual tools. If you want to sing along, scroll down for the lyrics.

The Woodworking Rap
By Steve Ramsey

You be chillin on your couch
Lookin like a grouch.
Got nothin to see
On your phat HDTV.

So you get up off your ass
And decide to mow the grass.
But your brain is feelin numb
And youre lookin hella dumb!

Its a chore, its a bore,
What the hell is it all for?
(You need something more)

If you could you know you would
You could be chillin like you should
And maybe workin, workin
Workin with your wood.

Master carpenter on TV
Makin it look easy.
Hes the boss, hes the best,
But this aint no freakin test!

So get a simple mission,
Make decisions with precision
Get some lumber to transform and remember
Abram aint the norm!

What project should you pick?
How bout a simple candlestick.
Pick up a chunk of oak
You know that oak it is the dope.

Put it on a table
Saw and flip the switch.

How long should you make it?
Doesnt matter, you can fake it.
Whatever you decide, just remember
It aint about the size.

Head over to your router,
No tool could be much louder.
Let your bit do the trick
And make the edges rounder.

You put em both together
Glue, a nail, whatever.
Take a nail and drive it in,
We can do it, we are men!

If you could you know you would
You could be chillin like you should
And maybe workin, workin
Workin with your wood.

You may think that it aint cool
To learn to use some tools.
I cant rap but I can try,
Im just a middle aged white guy.
