Tour poem

This poem was floating around selected USA fans. Its author is unknown -- though if s/he contacted me, I'm willing to add appropriate credit. Thanks to Jason (jamaliko@syr.edu) for forwarding it.

    Hey, ya'll, hey now n-now,

    Straight outta London, it's tha muthafuckin' Sistaz
    So you betta get ready, all you ladies and ya mistaz
    Eldritch is pissed; he don't care for limp-wristaz
    He only wants to rock, and these goths are resistaz

    Eldritch hits the stage and the ravers all scatta...
    Funky-ass beats and the bass is gettin' phatta...
    Most goth ain't funky, but it don't fuckin' matta...
    It's The Sistaz Of Mercy, and I never been sadda...

    All the goths at the bar damn near drop theya snakebite
    My bitch Andrew Eldritch rockin' out like Dol-a-mite
    He's lookin' so fine like some kinda Aphrodite
    That shit'll be mine when the clock strikes midnight

    (breakdown)
    What's wit dat hair? It's yellow and it's curly
    My bitch Andrew Eldritch lookin' just like a girly
    Some of da goths, they be leavin' real early
    Muthafuckin' chumps ain't nuthin' but surly

    But then the bass hits (BOOOM) like a big explosion
    Cuz Andrew and the boys are playin' "This Corrosion"
    Gonna make ya body move, gonna cause erosion
    On the muthafuckin' floor cuz the soundz ambrosian

    Got nuthin' ta say I ain't said befo'
    I rocked all I can, I can't rock no mo'
    Andrew don't need no goths ta understand
    Why he can't rock in a rock 'n' roll band

Is there a Sisters influenced rap soul out there willing to do an, erm, live version of this? I'd be glad to include MP3/RA here, and send any live Sisters tape/CDr from my collection for this.
