Official mouth cancer rap

Mouth cancer foundation official rap by Mr Shaodow

Mr ShaoDow, Rapper

In 2007 at the Mouth Cancer Voice Awards, a young rap star Mr ShaoDow performed a poem that he wrote in addition to his main rap act. The poem was powerful.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation was so impressed that we asked Mr ShaoDow to help us raise awareness and produce an official rap for us to release during Mouth Cancer Awareness Week 2008.

Special thanks to Mr ShaoDow's unique contribution. This track was produced by Offkey from Offkey Productions. All lyrics, wording and music is copyright of Mr ShaoDow.

" Seems like it'll never happen "

Lyrics written and performed by Elliot Haslam (Mr ShaoDow)

It's the kinda thing, it's the, it's the kinda thing
It's the kinda thing that you could just ignore, just ignore!

It starts off with a chronic sore,
An ulcer, numb tongue or a swollen jaw,
It's the kinda thing you could just ignore,
But those small cells ain't so small anymore.

It seems like it'll never happen,
Mouth cancer a concept further than Saturn,
So you sit back, safe in your usual pattern,
While a small gang of cells start to quietly fatten.

This health stuff, man you don't buy it,
So you smoke, drink and keep a bad diet,
A dentist could help but you don't wanna try it,
And those cells have nothing to say they stay quiet. Quiet!

It's the kinda thing, it's the, it's the kinda thing
It's the kinda thing that you could just ignore, just ignore!

It starts off with a chronic sore,
An ulcer, numb tongue or a swollen jaw,
It's the kinda thing you could just ignore,
But those small cells ain't so small anymore.

Where will it attack? You can make your choice,
Is it the mouth? Throat? Will it take your voice?
Not a joke, not a lie, the death rate is high,
Nearly every three hours someone else will die.

So would a life style change really be so bad?
Would a trip to the dentist be so mad?
Listen to my words man, cos it's more than banter,
Think what you could lose, if you had mouth cancer.

It's the kinda thing, it's the, it's the kinda thing
It's the kinda thing that you could just ignore, just ignore!
