Buggin’ to the Boogie by Ragga Muffin Rascals

I heard a song on the radio many years ago (around 1990 to mid 1993) that I really liked. I taped most of it but ended up accidentally erasing it later. I recall a lot of the lyrics (or at least what they sounded like) and clearly remember the DJ calling it Buggin’ to the Boogie by the Ragga Muffin Rascals (and mentioning that it has “a whole lotta samples”. One sample—in fact the whole chorus—was from the end of A Taste Of Honey’s song Boogie Oogie Oogie.

Here are some of the lyrics that I—sort of—remember:

buntin’ to a bake in the pie,
one skate too many knock in the eye
kick it to the club, a flake kick the can
jibaway, jibaway, jibaway Sam
I’m still young and I’m still a rookie,
still in school, and I’m still playin’ hooky
I got the mic and I’m shoulder neckin’ it

??? little boy blue,
Saul’s on the boss on Scooby-Dooby-Doo
Jack be nibmel and Jack be quick and,
??? cause my Jack’s a-kickin’

cut into the line like the tip of a razor,
??? a new school laser
the R to the A to the S to the C-A-L,
from that Catrice so it seems like Hell
San Antoinecho’s late for the bell
wrote enough to make my pocket swell

dance now, boogie oogie oogie,
dance now, boogie oogie oogie,

I’ve checked around and it seems that Ragga Muffin Rascals changed their name to Rascalz. It may be from their album Really Livin’, but I cannot find any information on this particular song and certainly can’t find a copy of it.

I would greatly appreciate any help on this since I really liked it and would love to hear it again.

One thought to “☑ Buggin’ to the Boogie by Ragga Muffin Rascals”

  1. It is indeed from their Really Livin’ album, and on June 19th 2015, I finally found a copy of the song. The lyrics could not be found on the Internet, so I transcribed them myself as best as I could (there are several parts where it is difficult to understand what they are saying).

    It only took the better part of 25 years, but I finally found it.

    Perhaps not all that surprisingly, most of what I remembered was fairly correct, although upon listening closely and repeatedly, some parts are now even more clear (for example, the first line I—almost—remembered was actually “Punch and Judy baking a pie”, a line I understand now, but did not back then).

    I listened to it over and over for quite a while. It’s still as good as I remember.

    (Looks like I’m not the only one who still has an interest in this song.)
