Blast from the Past

How many of you remember this one?

The Mormon Rap

Hey brothers and sisters,
Listen to me,
I'm talking to you religiously,
My Mormon Rap will make you see,
That I'm as funky as Donny and Marie.

When I go to church,
I'm in a good mood,
Cause they all treat me
Like a righteous dude.

When I watch tv,
I feel inspired,
Cause I listen to the
Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Mormon, Mormon Rap,
Do the Mormon Rap
Mormon, Mormon Rap,
Do the Mormon Rap

I'm a fine young man,
I'm living clean,
Don't smoke, don't drink,
If you know what I mean.
Don't touch Soda Pop if
It has caffiene,
You might say I'm
a good little Sunbeam.
I didn't even date,
Until I turned 16,
I don't even know
The meaning of the word obscene.
Flipp'n, fetch'n, scruddle-dee-me,
jimminy cricket, and fiddledy-dee!

Mormon, Mormon Rap,

Now Brigham Young,
He's my main man,
Cause He brought the
Pioneers to the promised Land.
Brother Brigham might be related to me,
I'll check it out when I do my genealogy.
He didn't want settle just anywhere,
That's why we've got a place called Temple Square
I wish I could've seen old Brigham's Face
When he said "Oh baby, this is the place!"

Mormon, Mormon Rap,
Do the Mormon Rap
Mormon, Mormon Rap,
Do the Mormon Rap

I met a mormon girl just yesterday,
Who had a real sweet spirit,
In her own choice way.
I said "Hey, I'm on my way to the Dairy Queen,
Would you like to join me for a bowl of Ice Cream"
She said "Sure, why Certainly,
But you're gonna have
to wait til after three,
I've gotta give a lesson and a recipe,
To my Relief Society"

I was thinking of another nice place to go,
So I took my baby to the wild road show,
Refreshments look real good to me,
Red punch, white cookies, and mint candy
Then I took her home,
Nice place she had,
That's where I met her mom and dad,
I said "How do ya do? and I'm pleased to meet ya"
And the door bell rang, was the Home Teachers
I looked at my baby and she said with a smile,
"We might be here for a little while"
I said "Come On girl, lets go and ride,
Cause we're gonna be late for the fireside!"

Mormon, Mormon Rap,
Do the Mormon Rap
Mormon, Mormon Rap,

My bishop asked if we're going steady,
And we said, "No sir, cause we're not ready,
We've got some important things to do,
Like graduate from BYU --
And sometime later in the fall,
I'm gonna recieve my mission call!
Don't you worry, I'll be flyin'
Right back home to the land of Zion!"
Put Salt Lake City on the map,
When we all do the Mormon Rap!

Mormon, Mormon Rap,
Do the Mormon Rap
Mormon, Mormon Rap,

"Hey Mom, What are we having for dinner?
Green Jello Salad with Shredded Carrots?
Come on all you kids get in the Station Wagon,
We're gonna be late for cub scouts!"

~C'mon, you all know you want to sing along!! ;)


  1. holy cow!
    you know i was singing the song, play-a! :)
    i don't think i ever knew all the words to the rap. kinda fun now to read them.

  2. Yeah, I know. That's why I posted them! I found them, and had to sing them. It does bring back some memories, doesn't it?

  3. I can't believe that you found the words. Of course, they should have been imprinted on your brain from all the times that I sang them to you guys. Most likely off key, but I did sing all the words. Kind of sad, huh.

  4. Too funny!! To be honest, I had never heard the song before, until I went to RICKS and went to the concert...I remember feelings a little conspicuous cause I didn't know the song.
    Oh yeah, and they played it this summer on the radio!! That's right, the radio, making fun of it. Only in Utah! ;0)

  5. This is crazy. Haven't heard it for years. We used to have a tape of it. That's probably where you guys first heard it. I don't remember what year it came out. It is funny. I guess Mormons really have some funny idiosyncrasies. What fun and what memories!
