When we got married our friends, Evan and Justin, performed a personalized rap at our reception and promised that when we had our first baby, they’d rap again. And they did. Oh, they did.
Dustin off the record from 2010
On the day you wed we said we’ed rap again
We’ve done weddings, birthdays, parties, and more
But yours is the first baby will be rapping for
You’ve been to the doctor to see baby in your belly
But our lyrics are smoother than that petroleum jelly
The Murphs are expanding so make some room
for the little tiny girl coming out of your womb
Her name is Scarlett but you’ll call her scout
listen up baby to what this rap’s about
Hush little baby don’t you cry
Uncle Justin and Evan are here for your rap-a-bye
Hush little baby don’t say a word
Your mama named you after to kill a Mockingbird
With the wit of your mom and the charm of your dad
You’ll be sure to win the hearts of many a lad
With the right amount of cool and the right amount of smarts
You’ll be great at sports and great at the arts
Scout, we love your parents so take it from us
Here’s some advice from J Reid and E Gus
Listen to mom and dad, they know what they’re doing
And no talking back with your baby cooing
Say please, thanks, and I love you
And never forget girl, we bleed blue
April 8th, the best day ever
You’re sealed into a family that nothing can sever
We love you Scout, have a great life!
You’ll be a great sister, daughter, mom, and wife!
Uncle Justin and Evan have rapped it just right
So close your little eyes and sleep through the night!
