Album:  3 Feet High and Rising
Song:   Jenifa Taught Me (Derwin's Revenge)
   Verse 1
   Access to her cove, lovestruck was my mode
   Took a look, dropped my textbook, Jenifa...oh!
   Breakfast - broke it fast, she was in my English class
   Asked for notes, rocked my boat, Jenifa...oh!
   Jenny lost her favourite penny, so I gave her a dollar
   She kissed me and I hollered!
   In a flash the schoolbell rang, Jenny grabbed onto my hand
   Took me home and said "Trugoy just swing it swing it swing!"
   Verse 2
   The Downstairs where we met, I'd brought records, she'd cassettes
   Lost a break, found her shake, Jenifa, oh Jenny
   Transcripts showed more than flirt, "I love daisies" read her shirt
   Grabbed my jeans, Jimmy screamed, Jenifa, oh Jenny
   Morals shaped like the floss, no-one could live their life for Pos
   Found her house, aroused my joust, Jenifa, oh Jenny
   Her clothes I did shuck, just like Dan I strictly stuck
   To the punt, she cried "Kick it!", Posdnous was in
   Jenny only thought about Jimmy, but asked was I a virgin
   Like some kid named Derwin?
   She said, "Let's try it in the bathroom", but the 'nous is way above
   So to the kitchen she did Dan and came back wrapped in Saran
   Now wait a minute! Little Derwin got somethin' to show us that Jenny
   could never do... (Listen...)
   Hey! Look at little Derwin! Look at him go, look at him go!
   Verse 3
   Positions, muscles flexed, Dove was lost in a Ghana hex
   Passed her test, felt her teddy, Jenifa, oh Jenny
   Notions soothed the mood, Dove was lost in De La heaven
   Scream Plug 2, did the do, Jenifa, oh Jenny
   Jenny teased my homeboy Granny, in fact she teased so many
   She was known as a garden tool
   No more I dispatch, was it Jimmy had met his match?
   Or could it be the realisation all girls owned a Jenny?
   For normal health I have fought, a valuable lesson she hath taught
   Don't flaunt that the candy is good unless you came with plenty
