“I got a chopper in the trimmer, shootin’ like Jimmer.”
This website helpfully translates:
Lil Wayne is describing his “chopper” — which is a gun for those that aren’t fluent in hip-hop — by saying it shoots like Jimmer
I think we should do our part to foster more positive press and public awareness of Mormons by encouraging more Mormon-theme lyrics to be included in popular songs. Jimmer has the advantage of being easy to rhyme, but I think we could come up with many other helpful 1- or 2-line suggestions for vocal artists to adopt.
My cred takes a hit,
like lettin’-dogs-out Mitt
I say hello!
Shake your body like a mold of green jell-o
You done me wrong, you got no alibi;
I’m accusin’ you; you’re like Noah, I’m Abinidi
Pop love song:
And IIIIIIIIIIIII will always love yooooooouuuuuu
Like those marriage-proposing kids at BYUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
I encourage our readers to contribute to this fledgling missionary outreach program by submitting your Mormon-theme lyrics for various genres. Once will build up a database of these, it will provide a valuable service to artists in times of writer’s block, and it will raise Mormons’ public profile: Win-win, as Stephen Covey would say!
Update: This comment from Sistas in Zion is pretty much the best thing ever.
