  • [Dr Cook]
    Ruth, send in the next patient

    [Chorus x4]
    Dodio-doe, there'll be no nose job
    Said dodio-doe, no nose job (smarter than that)

    [Baby D/Humpty-Hump]
    People say, yo Humpty now that your records is sellin
    Ain't it about time for you to be bailin out
    Of the race and community you come from
    Yo, your face has gotta change, Hump!
    Ice Cube says you're making more than Donald Trump
    So yo, go on and get your nose fixed, Hump

    Dr: Sit down
    HH: Wait a minute, uh-uh
    Dr: Get in the chair

    Listen, now the black girl wants to get her lip tucked
    She says Doc, I want my slim hips so I'm a slim figure
    The white girl says my hips are not big enough
    And yo, Doc, inject the collagen and make my lips bigger
    All of these so-called celebrities
    Sellin millions of records and claimin no responsibilities
    A young girl sees you on a TV show
    She's only six, says "Mama, I don't like my nose!"
    Why'd you have to go and mess up the child's head
    So you can get another gold waterbed?!
    You fakehaircontactwearinliposuction carnival exhibit
    Listen to my rhyme, you need to hear it


    Uh, and you don't stop, check it
    I smell the message from the TV
    Does my Humpty nose deceive me?
    Smells like the blacker the wacker
    Polly wants to be a cracker, if you let her
    But see for me, the bigger the nose the better
    They say the lighter the righter
    Oh yeah?! Well, that's tough
    Sometimes I feel I'm not black enough
    I'm high yellow, my nose is brown to perfection
    And if I was to change it'd be further in that direction
    So catch me on the beach, I'll be gettin a tan
    Make sure there's no mistake that
    Humpty-Hump is from the motherland
    Layin in the sun, string bikini
    Between the buns of two cuties
    Still mackin, there'll be no nose job


    [Baby D]
    Come on, Humpty, let's get out of here

    Dr: Hi, Humpty. My name is Dr Cook, I'll be handlin your surgery today
    HH: Uh, surgery?! Ain't no surgery, said I don't want none ­
    Dr: Yeah, but you're gonna be a big star
    HH: Star? Look I'm already a star ­
    Dr: A huge star, kid
    HH: y'all don't understand, man ­
    Dr: Big, really big!
    HH: So what, I don't want to ­
    Dr: Yeah, get his legs
    HH: Put me down, put me down!
    Dr: Come on, Humpty, don't worry about a thing, don't worry about it
    HH: No, no!
    Dr: Calm down, you're going to be fine..
    HH: Hey!
    Dr: Come on, sedative (sedative)..scalpel (scalpel)
    HH: Sedative! Scalpel!
    Dr: Knife (knife), Gauze pad (gauze), and gimme a little tape (tape)
    Dr: Okay, he'll be alright..don't worry about it
    HH: [gibberish]
    Nr: You're falling asleep, Mr Humpty.. Writer/s: GREGORY E. JACOBS
