   I. EXPLANATION OF FAQ
===========================================================================

This FAQ was originally designed solely as a reference to the lyrics of
PaRappa The Rapper.  I have no intention at the moment of including
gameplay guides and hints etc.

The lyrics are split into 2 main sections - solo and repeat.  The solo
lyrics are usually the lyrics that the teacher says before you rap to the
next section or to end the rap.  You do not repeat these lyrics as PaRappa.
These lyrics are preceded with the following note depending on who is
saying them:

/PaRa/   = PaRappa
/Chop/   = Chop Chop Master Onion
/Moose/  = Instructor Mooselini
/Flea/   = Prince Fleaswallow
/Cheap/  = Cheap Cheap the Cooking Chicken
/MC/     = MC King Kong Mushi

The repeat lyrics are the ones you repeat.  They are shown in this FAQ by a 
note preceding them - /repeat/.  Usually you repeat these lyrics word for
word but if PaRappa says something different to the teacher this will be
shown in brackets after the line.

eg. from level 1 -

/repeat/ Once more now Kick (Kick)

This is showing that Chop Chop Master Onion says "Once more now Kick" and
PaRappa follows up with simply "Kick" instead of "Once more now Kick".  If
there are no extra lyrics in brackets then PaRappa repeats exactly what the
teacher says.

There are a couple of exceptions.  Firstly, in level 6 you take over from
MC King Kong Mushi at the end leading the rap.  Therefore you are not
repeating these lyrics because you are leading, and they aren't normal solo
lyrics because YOU are making them happen so I've called these lyrics:

/PaRa-S/ = PaRappa Solo lyrics

Secondly, the crowd from level 6 repeat your /PaRa-S/ lyrics and some of MC
King Kong Mushi's lyrics so they aren't normal solo lyrics or normal
PaRappa /repeat/ lyrics.  I've called these /crowd/ lyrics.

Sometimes what either the teacher or PaRappa says sounds different to what
the subtitles say at the bottom of the screen but I'll just print what the
words are at the bottom of the screen as in the game for simplicity.

NB. The lyrics in section II assume that you go through the level normally,
without going onto a "COOL" rating at any time and finishing the level with
a "GOOD" rating.
