If you've ever listened to any of my FACELIFT series installments, you know I love to re-work original lyrics into dramatically fresh and/or fun interpolations. Now's your chance to do the same with RAP LIBS©, a little something I came up with to kill time while you're probably supposed to be doing something productive.

Each RAP LIBS© will feature the lyrics to one of my songs as a phrasal template, within which you can add your own words to the provided blanks for fresh or funny results. If you've ever played the old school MAD LIBS, you already know what to do. Here's the hard part, though -- If the blank falls on a rhyming word, do your best to make your word rhyme!

Post your RAP LIBS© rewrite in the comments below, on my Google+ or Facebook pages, or send them to me HERE. I'll send you a free download of the song you re-worked to add to your iPod playlist, helping you kill even MORE time you're supposed to be doing something productive.

Get it? GOOD. Let's get it craccin'...
