RUSH: I had a story in the past couple days that Mrs. Clinton on her website is asking visitors to her website to come up with her campaign song, and I don’t have the story in front of me anymore. It’s back in one of the stacks. I had the perfect song. I’ve got this little fear that if I give you the title of the song, it’s going to backfire. I don’t want to create sympathy voters for Mrs. Clinton. Well, I’ll go ahead and tell you what it was, because I’m not going to do it. I was going to play the song, just my idea was that Sir Mix-a-Lot had a song back in the early nineties with the refrain, ‘I Like Big Butts.’ Well, she’s looking for a song. We can get somebody on the website to nominate it. I was thinking about this when going through the story about these two whales out there in Sacramento.
That’s what reminded me of it. We had songs to lure wayward whales toward home. ‘The recorded siren songs of humpback whales played from a Coast Guard cutter yesterday as biologists tried to lure an injured whale and her calf out of a shipping channel and back toward the Pacific Ocean 90 miles away. It could take weeks to get these two whales back where they belong, said scientists. Still, hundreds of people line the riverbanks to watch the progress on Thursday morning.’ This is out in Sacramento. What’s going to happen with this, if it hasn’t already, there are going to be people — they’re out there in the delta, it’s the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. They’re playing this song. Whatever song they’re using to trying to get the whales to go back to where they should be, there could also be a song that you could nominate for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, what have you. But beyond all that, this has happened before. This happened when I lived out there. I lived out there ’84 to first half of ’88, and it happened. I don’t remember when, I don’t remember, one or two, but a whale got in there.
RUSH: All right, now, let’s give them even more ‘controversy,’ quote, unquote. Last hour (if you were listening on NBC’s the Today Show), we were talking about these two whales lost up there in the San-Joaquin Delta out near Sacramento, my old adopted hometown. I have experience with whales out there. This is not the first time it’s ever happened. It has nothing to do with global warming. Anyway, they’re playing songs, siren songs that the whales sing to each other. The Coast Guard is trying to get ’em out. I saw a piece on Hillary Clinton’s website early this week. She’s asking visitors to her website to choose her campaign song, and I thought, ‘Baby Got Back,’ by Sir Mix-A-Lot. I said, ‘I don’t want to play it because I’m not trying to create a sympathy vote for Mrs. Clinton.’ Mrs. Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Mrs. Bill Clinton, whatever. People ask, ‘What is this song? You keep saying ‘I Like Big Butts.” Well, I Like Big Butts is the lyric line, which made me think it was a joke, and then I saw the whales singing to each other out there. Well, maybe that song, whatever the Coast Guard is playing, can be Hillary’s song. Hillary is asking for suggestions. So people were saying, ‘I’ve never heard this song, ‘I Like Big Butts.” Here’s your chance. Sir Mix-A-Lot as the artist with the vocal portrayal here. The title of the tune is ‘Baby Got Back.’
SIR MIX-A-LOT (lyrics): I like big butts and I can not lie / You other brothers can’t deny / That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist / And a round thing in your face / You get sprung, wanna pull out, 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’cha / 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 / You say you wanna get in my Benz? / Well, use me, use me / ‘Cause you ain’t that average groupy / I’ve seen them dancin’ / The hell with romancin’ / She’s sweat, wet, / Got it goin’ 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 gotta pack much back / So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!) / Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah!) / Tell ’em to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!) / Shake that healthy butt! / Baby got back! / (LA face with Oakland booty) / Baby got back!
RUSH: All right, you basically heard it.
SIR MIX-A-LOT: I like ’em round, and big / And when I’m throwin’ a gig / I just can’t help myself, I’m actin’ like an animal / Now here’s my scandal / I wanna get you home / And ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh!
RUSH: In fact, cue it just back to the top. I want to hear the way the song opens one more time. Let me know when you have that ready to go, Ed. It had another couple and a half minutes to go here, folks, and we’ve gotta get to our profit center time-out. But she was asking for songs, and that’s just what I was thinking.
SIR MIX-A-LOT: I like big butts and I can not lie / You other brothers can’t deny / That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist / And a round thing in your face / You get sprung, wanna pull out tough.
RUSH: That’s Sir Mix-A-Lot.
SIR MIX-A-LOT: ‘Cause you notice that butt was stuffed / Deep in the jeans she’s wearing / I’m hooked and I can’t stop staring
RUSH: This will probably end up on the Today Show because I’m desperately trying to get noticed.
SIR MIX-A-LOT: Oh baby, I wanna get wit’cha / 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.
RUSH: Yeah. Maybe I’ll find a way to make myself the most listened to host in America, as I really need to get noticed!
SIR MIX-A-LOT: You say you wanna get in my Benz? / Well, use me, use me / ‘Cause you ain’t that average groupy / I’ve seen them dancin’ / The hell with romancin’!
RUSH: If I get noticed any more, Putin is going to fly over here and start following me around to restaurants I go to. It won’t just be Clinton.
