We knew Stephen Colbert could sing. We knew he could dance. We even knew he could convince hoards of viewers to rewrite the history of the elephant. But did we know he could rap? Oh right, we did. Well, he still can. In fact, he should probably just always rap everything he says from now on, because he's awesome at it.
Stephen's interview with Alicia can be found below.
UPDATE: The lyrics to Stephen's rap are pasted below the interview clip.
Yeah, I love New York, it's the king of all the cities
I lived up by the guggenheim till I got myself some kiddies
Moved to Connecticut, bye George Pataki
Volvo to the dry-cleaner pickin' up my khakis
Now my shopping mall is closer, my community is gated
My shorties are all private school educated
Home theater system, 60-inch plasma
Clean suburban air much better for my asthma
Still hit the city, Times Square I keep it real
Hard Rock Cafe for their appetizer deal
M&Ms Store, Disney Store, I'm in heaven
I own this town from 41st to 47
Got tickets to The Lion King, that show is fantastic
Leave half an hour early so I can beat the traffic
I can get home really fast, driver rocks an EZ-Pass
To the land of cheaper gas and the upper middle class
