Baby Got Back – Gilbert and Sullivan Style

Update! You can download the song (as well as other stuff I’ve written) via my SoundCloud account:

The advent of time warp technology offered to Knights of the British Empire has allowed this uniquely satisfying look at Sirs Gilbert and Sullivan’s re-envisioning of fellow Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back. O! What a joy it is for us to hear these three titans working in concert for the first time, and hopefully not the last.

Score/Retro-editing: Mike Hightower
Add’l Vox: Jeanne Newman and Kendra (whose last name I don’t know)

    Ten years later, and I'm still contractually obligated to share this with any friend who brings up the original.

    It seems this is the 25th anniversary of the original. So I am naturally sharing this video around. THANK YOU!!

    I like big butts and I cannot lie

    all you other brothers can't deny

    when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist

    And a round thing in your face

    You get sprung, wanna pull out your tough

    'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed

    Deep in the jeans she's wearing

    I'm hooked and I can't stop staring

    Oh baby, I wanna get wit ya

    And take your picture

    My homeboys tried to warn me

    But with that butt you got makes me feel so horny

    Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin

    say you wanna get my Benz?

    Well, use me, use me, use me

    'Cause you ain't that average groupie

    I've seen them dancin'

    To hell with romancin'

    She's sweat, wet,

    like a turbo 'Vette

    I'm tired of magazines

    Sayin' flat butts are the thing

    Take the average black man and ask him that

    She’s gotta pack much more back

    So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)

    Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah!)

    shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)

    Shake that healthy butt!

    Back, Baby got back! X8
    My anaconda don't want none

    Unless you've got the buns, hun

    You can do side bends or sit-ups,

    But please don't please don’t lose that butt
    I wanna get you home

    And ugh, double-up, uh huh

    ain't talkin' bout Playboy

    'Cause silicone parts are made for toys

    want 'em real thick and juicy

    So find that juicy double

    Mix-a-Lot's in trouble

    Beggin' for a piece of that bubble
    So Cosmo says you're fat

    Well I ain't down with that!

    'Cause your waist is small and your curves are kickin'

    And I am thinkin' bout stickin'
    Give me a sister, I can't resist her

    beans and rice didn't miss her
    A lot of simps won't like this song

    But I'd rather stay and play

    'Cause I am long, and I am strong

    I'm down to get the friction on

    So, ladies! (Yeah!) Ladies! (Yeah)

    roll in my Mercedes (oh Yeah!)

    turn around! Stick it out!

    Even white boys got to shout

    Back, Baby got back! [x8]
    Well I do say when it comes to the fairer sex, the
    periodical Cosmopolitan has little to do with my selection.

    36-24-36? Well perhaps if she were 5'3".
    ladies, if your butt is round,

    And you want a triple X throw down,

    Dial 900-MIXALOT

    And kick them nasty thoughts
    so fellas (yeah), ladies (yeah)
    roll in my mercedes (oh yeah)
    shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)

    Shake that healthy butt!

    Back, Baby got back!

    Baby got back!
    Baby got back!

    Baby got back! (repeat)
    (Little in the middle but she got much back) [4x]

    This is the video that got me into YouTube, hard to believe its been 10 years already.

    The great irony of this brilliant Sir Gilbert Mixalot and Sullivan mashup is that there is absolutely no "back" on any of these ladies.

    I love this, please do consider doing a Gilbert and Sullivan rendition of Billericay Dickie by Ian Dury.
