Rap Allstars – “Last Christmas” ft. Leroy Daniels

Back in 1998, the Rap Allstars created their own rendition of George Michael’s classic song “Last Christmas”. It’s a great song and fits perfectly into any Christmas playlist. Nothing revolutionary here, just good old fashion hip hop Christmas music. There’s also a video to go along with it.

┬áRap Allstars – “Last Christmas” Lyrics

[Chorus: Leroy Daniels]

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to set me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

[Verse 1: 2 Ruff]

Yo, Yo
We got the sound, make the world go round
Yo it’s 98, still coming thru with the get down
But this time it’s Christmas, cold outside
Everybody looking good, even boms looking fly
And it’s on like that, yo, it’s time to represent
Trying to stay alive spread the love to your friends
We still shining, keep it nice this year
Yo, I try to pray for my dreams, prepare for next year

[Verse 2: 4 The Cause]

I gave you real love and you took it for granted
Promise you the world, and you couldn’t even handle it
Sweets and the roses was yours, no doubt
Put you played me wrong and you got it right out
Yo, you know I shared some tears last time because of you
Now my mind is free, and the love is brand new
No more games, yo, it’s time to move on
No more sleepless nights and the same old sad song

[Chorus] [Verse 3: Down Low]

Uh, uh, check it out
Now how we meat, girl I can’t forget
Remember last Christmas and they times we slept
Reminding mo’, touch and hold
Never letting go until one of us says so
Sharing love on [?] glance
Holding hands as we advance
Can you laugh, it’s a pleasure to always be
Next to a woman with a sense of life and personality

[Verse 4: Sweetbox]

Yeah, on this day, I [?] and I wanna say
You took my hear and gave it back, and run away
On Christmas day, the bells are ringing, bring new life
Last year, this time, I know the tears I cry
Happiness and joy, love can fill my life
Someone special found them like an angel flies
This time last Christmas I gave my heart
But this time everything is allright

[Chorus] [Bridge] A face on a lover with a fire in his heart,
A man undercover but you tore me apart,
(Baby, next year)
I’ll give it to someone special

[Verse 5: 2-4 Family]

Once again it’s the time of the year
When children chill and laughter’s everywhere
Then you place a golden star on top of your tree
Cause home with your family is where you wanna be
Little sister, big bo, beyond the angels on the snow
Waiting by the door for the man under the mistletoe
2-4 represent so don’t miss this
We got the gift of gab wrapped up just for Christmas
