Lyrics:
SAY WHAT?...... I HEAR YA……HEAR WHAT I SAY?

DESE ARE SOME EXPRESSIONS DAT WE HEAR EVERY DAY
NOW…IDIOMS REFLECT WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO DA CULTURE
DESE SPEAK ABOUT YO HEARIN
AND DAT’S WHY I APPROACH YA

YA SEE
HEARIN GOOD IS CRITICAL
G-D KNOWS DAT I’M NOT JOKIN
IF YOUR DEAF AND GET NO HELP
DEN NO WORD WILL BE SPOKEN

NOW DON’T GET ME WRONG
THE EXAMPLE IS EXTREME
BUT FROM HEARIN GOOD TO DEAFNESS
DERE’S LOTS A LEVELS IN BETWEEN

FO EXAMPLE. IF YO HEARIN’S ONLY 60 %
YOU CAN HEAR WHAT SOMEONE’S SAYIN
BUT NOT DIG WHAT DEY MEANT

NOW DIS CAN GET EMBARRASCATIN
IF YO NOT COMMUNICATIN
DEN BEFORE YA KNOW IT
YA WANNA STOP PARTICIPATIN

SOCIAL WITHDRAWAL……. DEPRESSION…… AND… IGNORAL
UP TIGHT….…..CAN’T SLEEP AT NIGHT
BY DAY YOUR FEELIN AWFUL

NOW YA NEED….PSYCHOLOGY... .... NEUROLOGY…… SPEECH PATHOLOGY
BUT IF YA BEGAN WITH AUDIOLOGY
YO PROBLEMS WOULD HAVE BEEN MYTHOLOGY

NOW….LET’S USE SOME CHRONOLOGY
AND EXPLORE THE MYSTERY OF AUDIOLOGY

YA SEE…..
FIRST WE TAKE AN OTOSCOPE
AND LOOK INTO YO EARS

DEN WE PUTCHA ON SOME HEAD PHONES
AND TEST HOW WELL YA HEAR

IF YA GOT A PROBLEM
WE FIND EXACTLY WHERE

IT COULD BE IN YO OUTER…..MIDDLE…..OR YOUR INNER EAR

IT COULD BE DAT YO OSSICLES ARE FAR TOO STIFF TO WIGGLE

OR PERHAPS YO OUTER HAIR CELLS ARE UNABLE TO JIGGLE


BUT WHAT EVER DA PROBLEM
YOU GOT NOTHIN TO FEAR
YO IN DA HANDS OF AN AUDOLOGIST
AND YA KNOW DA BUCK STOPS HERE

WELL I’M ALMOST FINISHED WIT MY RAP
BUT BEFORE I LEAVE DA STAGE
I THINK I OUGHT TA MENTION
DAT WE DO MIRACLES WIT HEARIN AIDS

WE CAN PROGRAM DESE COMPUTER THINGS
TO MAKE YOUNG CHILDREN HEAR AND SING

TEENAGERS, YOUNG ADULTS, AND OLDER
GET HAPPIER, MORE CONFIDENT, AND BOLDER

WELL….I CAN GO ON LIKE DIS FOR SEASONS
BUT I HOPE I GAVE YA ALL SOME REASONS
TO CONSIDER AUDIOLOGY
AND PURSUIN YO DOCTORATE… YOUR AuD


HEY! IF YA GOT ANY QUESTIONS
YA CAN CALL ON ME

CAUSE I’M DR. REITER
RAP KING OF AUDIOLOGY

Song History / Background:
From the Hofstra University Press Release at
hofstra.edu

Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY: Dr. Levi Reiter, head of Hofstra University's audiology program and professor of speech-language-hearing sciences*, was simply trying promote the audiology profession when he composed a rap song for freshman orientation and for his first day of classes in 2005.

However, this rapping grandfather of 17 was unprepared for the "props" he received soon thereafter from students, colleagues and even the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA). In fact ASHA, the national association for speech pathologists and audiologists, is using Dr. Reiter's rap, titled "Say Whut?" in an ambitious program designed to recruit undergraduates across the country for careers in audiology.

"It's a great icebreaker," said Dr. Reiter, a Chassidic Jew who also has a thriving audiology practice in Brooklyn. After initial positive feedback, Dr. Reiter recorded "Say Whut?" in a professional studio with full instrumental backup. However, Dr. Reiter is not thinking about Grammys or Billboard rankings. Getting students to consider a profession in the hearing sciences is reward enough for him.

*Dr. Reiter is also on the faculty council of the Long Island AuD Consortium.
