New vid: "It's Tricky" (Legends of Tomorrow)  


Rock a rhyme that's right on time

By bradcpu and milly
Length: 2:36
Fandom: Legends of Tomorrow
Song/Artist: "It's Tricky" by Run-DMC
Premiered at Club Vivid, VividCon 2016
Here on AO3 / Here on Tumblr

Milly had the idea but not the time, so we turned it into a Club Vivid collab. I did the verses and most of the clipping, and she handled most of the choruses and instrumental bits.

The show is my favorite thing on TV at the moment, which is a statement I didn't expect to ever make after watching the first episode! It's almost like they took a team of comic book characters and had them slowly evolve into real people, with real relationships and complex motivations. That's been a fascinating arc to watch. It doesn't hurt that it's beautiful to look at ... and of course I'm a sucker for team feels.

Lyrics
This speech is my recital, I think it's very vital
To rock (A rhyme), that's right (On time)
It's Tricky is the title, here we go

It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's Tricky, it's Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky, tricky (Tricky) tricky

In New York the people talk and try to make us rhyme
They really (hawk) but we just (walk) because we have no time
And in the city it's a pity 'cause we just can't hide
Tinted windows don't mean nothin', they know who's inside

It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky (How is it D?) Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky) huh!

When I wake up people take up mostly all of my time
I'm not singin', phone keep ringin' 'cause I make up a rhyme
I'm not braggin', people naggin' 'cause they think I'm a star
Always tearin' what I'm wearin', I think they're goin' too far
A girl named Carol follows Daryll every gig we play
Then D dissed her and dismissed her, now she's jockin' Jay
I ain't lyin', girls be cryin' 'cause I'm on TV
They even bother my poor father 'cause he's down with me

It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky (How is it?) Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky, tricky (Tricky) Tr
We are not thugs (We don't use drugs) but you assume (On your own)
They offer coke (And lots of dope) but we just leave it alone
It's like that y'all (Y'all), but we don't quit
You keep on (Rock!) shock! 'cause this is it

Thanks for watching!

Love the motion and editing in this. Sadly I gave up on LoT about halfway through the season and skipped to the finale. I tend to be pretty critical of historical time travel stories and just found a lot of it boring (the idea of all the characters together was exciting, but in practice I didn't think most of them got enough development time). But I'll bet this rocked at Club Vivid!
