Hamlet as Told on the Street

Now Francisco and Bernardo they was guardin’ the castleLeanin’ on their spears not lookin’ for no hassle Havin’ themselves a brew or two When out in the night they hear woo wooo woooAnd here comes this ghost lookin’ ragged and rank In a rusty suit of armor goin’ clank clank clank They say Hey Mr Ghost are you our dear departed king But the ghost don’t say one motherfuckin’ thing He goes Wooo wooo wooo They say Hey we better split And go tell Hamlet about this shitSo they run find Hamlet they say Hey sweet Prince Your daddy’s ghost been seen runnin’ hither and hince He’s all full of maggots and he’s grizzly and grim Somethin’s rotten in Denmark and whew we think it’s him Hamlet say Oh are you sure it’s my pop Did he have matty gray hair with a bald spot on top Did he have bright blue eyes that never know fearAnd a tattoo says GERTRUDE FOREVER right hereThey say Hey the thing just flittered by our station We didn’t give him no phyical examination And we don’t know for sure if your daddy was the one But we do know a motherfuckin’ ghost when we see one Hamlet say Show me where you spied this spectral klunkSo I see if it’s my pop or if you was both drunk So they bring ol’ Hamlet to the spot and thenThey wait five minutes and wooooo Here he comes again He got gray skin black teeth and hollow eyes Beckonin’ like this young Hamlet cries Hold spirit of darness are you a ghostly apparition No says the ghost I look like this from malnutrition Of course I’m a ghost but sone don’t be scared And I’ll tell you some shit that’ll fry your hairHe says You got two relatives I won’t say which But one’s a bloody murderer and one’s a faithless bitch Why I was takin’ a nap in the garden right here When my ambitious brother pours some poison in my ear And before my body’s even cold he’s wearin’ my pajamas Layin’ up in my bed with my crown on his head Doin’ somethin’ sinful to your momma And the terrible thoughts of what they’re doin’ up thereIs than a poor old ghost can bear So you gotta revenge me on this harlot and this knaveOr else I’ll never rest in my motherfuckin’ graveWell this information just flips Hamlet out He starts walkin’ like this with spit hangin’ out his mouth His eyes are all bleary and his tongue looks worse And he’s talkin’ in couplets and blank fuckin’ verse I mean the dude is indecisive He don’t know how he’d like his eggs And he’s got no opinion on tits ass or legs He can’t decide which horse to play at the track And when they ask him what suit you wanna wear today He say Ahumgimme the black He calls his uncle a murderer Calls his momma a whore And he can’t get it up for Ophelia no Oh and Ophelia She’s tryin’ her bestTo make him feel better Wants to polish his crown jewels But he won’t let her Stead of sayin’ yea the fool says nay And the whole court’s figurin’ he must be gayWell then in come Hamlet’s oldest friends Rosenstern and Guildencrantz They say Hey there Ham you gloomy Gus Get up – get down – and party with us We brought you some actores Some tunes and some lyricsTo put on a play to boost up your spirits Hamlet says Hey – songs and skits That gives me an idea that could stir up some shit We’ll put on a play –N that could be just the thingTo catch the conscience of the king If there is a conscience in the motherfuckin’ kingSo Hamlet calls all the actors he say ’Fore this drama starts I’m gonna tell you suckers how to play your parts You gotta speak the speech like I pronounced it –Don’t rush it don’t milk it don’t drag it don’t bounce it I mean do it trippingly on the tongue Or else I’ll see your thespian asses strung up and hung And don’t saw the air with your hands flappin’ wild N’ don’t go mouthin’ my words in some method styleThen the lead actor says Hey – are we aliveOr just some talking meat that’s gotta listen to this jiveI have read this thing you call a scriptAnd it ain’t too bad it’s got a few little dips But with some new dialogue and a few minor edits –Hey do you mind sharing writer credits But this part about the king poisoning his brother I play this wile the real king’s watchin’ Sittin’ with your mother You must be out of your cotton pickin’ mind He’ll cut out my tongue he’ll gouge out my eyes He’ll boil me in oil and send me to hell Hamlet says How about double scale – The actor says WellI want my name above the title three percent of the gross I want that tall brunette as my dialogue coach I want approval of director and a juicy per diem And if there’s changes in the script I got to see ‘em I want a dresser and undresser and a hairdresser too And I gotta gotta gotta have the biggest dressing room I want an escape clause that lets me out in a month And the first thing I insist is that you fire that cunt I want transportation to and from every show I want complimentary tickets for everybody I know I want my brother and my cousin hired to play in the band And don’t go tryin’ to sneak in any extra matinees And next time you wanna speak to me Check with the director first Now Hamlet as Told on the Street Shel SilversteinHamlet As Told On The StreetNow Francisco and Bernardo they was guardin the castleLeanin on their spears not lookin for no

Eat Just picture me – a sweet young thing Then boom – my husband’s dead – and this sucker’s king So it’s ‘heat the meat and act real sweet’Or wind up with my ass out in the goddamned street I got cellulite I got varicose veins I got a hip gets stiff every time it rains And this is what nursing a baby can do Course honey I’m not blamin’ you Though you were such a hungry child But life goes on and a ueen must smileThen hark – just then Hamlet hears a soundFrom behind the curtain – like a mouse skitt’rin’ ‘roundBut it’s really Ophelia’s daddy spyin’ for the kingListenin’ and takin’ down everythingHamlet yells A rat and he stabs at the placeAnd kerplunk out falls Polonius on his eavedroppin’ faceHamlet sees it ain’t the king he says Oh shitY’finally do take action and this is what you getNow I killed my girlfriend’s poppa and I’m covered with his bloodHow do you explain this to someone you loveThen here comes Ophelia callin’ Daddy Daddy dearHamlet is my daddy in here Wellhe is and he ain’t – but someone should have told the catY’don’t wanna get stabbed don’t make noise like a ratShe cries Oh my daddy’s dead and I can see You stuck it in him like you stuck it in me I can’t believe the shit you done to me You used to want all – now you want none of me Is this your perverted way of makin’ fun o’ me Hamlet says Hey then get thee someplaceMaybe a a nunnery Get me to a nunnery Ophelia moans Now that you ate the chicken you wanna try and hide the bones With your poetry and promises you messed up my brain You are a dirty dog – and not a great Dane Please says Hamlet I’m in a crazed condition Can’t you see I’m torn by indecision To be or not to be That’s the fuckin’ uestionThat’s givin’ me migraines and indigestion Should I take arms against a sea of trouble Or just walk around goin’ gubble gubble gubbleOphelia says Hey you don’t fool me a bitYou’re fakin’ all this psycho shit ‘Cause if you’re insane you don’t have to kill the king Or marry me or do any damn thing Ham says Hey go bake a cake or give your booty a shakeOr take a jump in the motherfuckin’ lake –Well that’s where he made another fatal mistake Y’see he didn’t really mean for the bitch to do it But she’s gone like a flash and run jump splash She’s floatin’ and bloatin’ ‘fore anybody knew itOh when it rains it pours says Hamlet Ain’t no doubt Here’s another thing I gotta feel guilty aboutWell they have Ophelia’s funeral and everybody’s thereThey got diamonds on their doublet they got ribbons in their hair They’re rattlin’ their beads and twistin’ in their chairs Tryin’ to catch if any celebrities are there And it’s a pleasant event until into her graveLeaps her brother Laertes and he rants and raves He’s shakin’ his fist and pullin’ his hair Gettin’ his ass tangled up in his underwear Jumpin’ up and down in a frenzied fit Meanwhile stompin’ her body to shit He cries FEE FO FI if I find the guy who caused her to die I’ll slice him like a pie I’ll cut out his heart and send it to Peru ‘N’ I’ll cod his balls off to Timbuktu Ship his dick to England in a registered letter And then let him try to get his shit back together Then the king pulls his coat he says Harken to this Hamlet’s the dude who fucked up your sis And he also stabbed your daddy too And all you do is boo hoo hoo What kind of brother and son are youIf it was my family I know what I’d do I’d be on him like a damned tattoo Now there is a sword with a poisoned tip It’ll send any sucker on a one way trip ‘Cause all it takes is one itty bitty scratchHey Hamlet how about a little fencin’ matchWell then the whole fuckin’ place caves in Hamlet stabs Laertes and Laertes stabs him Then Hamlet turns around and stabs his uncle too While the ueen drinks some poison the king had brewed So she dies he dies Hamlet dies Laertes diesOn top of where Ophelia lies Right next to where Polonius died And before you can wink blink or turn your head Chop stab slice every motherfucker’s deadThen in walks this cat Fortinbras he says What – is thisI have never seen such a fuckin’ mess You got skulls and swords you got guts and gore You got bodies piled up from ceiling to floor You got broken glass y’got tangled hairs You got blood and wine runnin’ down the stairs You got dented armor and ripped up gowns You got bent up crowns just rollin’ ‘round Y’got a punctured king y’got a poisoned ueen Y’got a sweet prince dyin’ on the mezzanine And behind that curtain there’s another dead duff And a body from the fishpond just floated up Y’got a stiff in the garden with some gunk in his ear And a tatto says GERTRUDE FOREVER right here And two guards on the gate tower drunk on beer What the hell’s been goin’ on hereWell that was the end of our sweet prince He died in confusion and nobody’s seen him since And the moral of the story is bells do get out of tuneAnd you can find shit in a silver spoonAnd an old man’s revenge can be a young man’s ruinOh – and never look too close at what your mamma is doi The mixture of Shel Shaky is a great fun book I figuratively laughed out loud
