The twelfth of May was one helluva day.
When the news got around to all the seaport towns,
That the great Titanic was sinkin down.
Up stepped a black man from the deck below that they called 'Shine'.
Hollerin, "Captain! Captain! Don't you know?
There's forty feet of water on the boiler room flo'.
The captain said, "Go back, you dirty black!
We got a thousand pumps to keep this water back."
Shine went back below and began to think.
Said, "Mm, this big, bad muthafucka is bound to sink."
Shine said, "There's fish in the ocean and crabs in the sea.
But it's one time you good cool white people ain't gonna bullshit me."
Shine went on the deck, jumped overboard, waved his ass and began to swim.
With a thousand millionaires lookin at him.
The Captain's wife stepped on the deck,
Said, "Shine! Shine! please save po me!
I'll give you all the good pussy you can see."
Shine said, "Your pussy's good and that is true,
But there's some ho's down on fifth street that's make an ass outta you.
Now there's pussy on land and pussy on sea
I got twenty five ho's in New York just waitin for me."
The captain's daughter stepped on the deck,
Said, "Shine! Shine! Please save po me!"
Said, "I'll name this little kid after thee."
Shine said, "Biiitch! You knocked up and gonna have a kid,
But yo ass gotta hit this water just like ole Shine did."
Here come the captain,
"Shine! Shine! Please save me!
I'll make you richer than any shine can be."
Shine said, "Captain, to save you would be very fine,
But I gotta first save this black ass of mine!"
Said, "There's money on land and money on sea,
I got a thousand dollars in New York just waitin on me."
Shine said, "Shark, look out!"
Said, "I know some of this black ass you'd like to taste.
But from here to New York it's gonna be one helluva race!"
When the news got around the world that the great Titanic had sunk,
Shine was in Harlem on 125th street, damn near drunk.
Shine spent all of his money, fucked his 25 women.
His dick got sore. Went to the doctor.
Doctor said, "Shine, I'm gonna have to cut yer dick off."
Shine said, "Doctor," Said, "You better cut it off down to the muthafuckin bone,
Cause if you leave any meat I'm gonna fuck right on!
If I should die, have my balls soaked in alcohol, lay my dick on my chest
And tell all these good cock bitches that ole Shine has gone to rest.
Shine died and went to hell.
The devil said, "All you bitches, you better climb the wall,
Cause ole Shine done come down here to fuck us all!"
