November 11, 2009 � Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed in our own communities and around the world with unmatched integrity and energy. The International Headquarters for both Lions Clubs International and the LCIF is in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA. Our 45,000 clubs and more than 1.3 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. We get the job done. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need schoolbooks, with seniors who need transportation and with people we may never meet. We're led by talented, dedicated volunteer leaders from around the world. And, we're supported by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), which helps to fund Lions humanitarian projects.
Lions club members come together in this humorous hip hop video. The lyrics focus on what wearing the yellow Lions club vest means to the community. Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed - in our own communities and around the world - with unmatched integrity and energy. Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. To learn more, visit www.Be-A-Lion.org. Lyrics Yo....Dial up that pacemaker G, I got something to say -- the yellow vest posse - H. E. L to tha P. Comin 'atchu now (the yellow vest posse) Well you might see me cruising in my old folks ride Blinkers been on since I got inside You thinkin' I'm a fogey, shuffleboardin' old timer But I'm a Lions clubs member, and a really good rhymer You know I dress to impress, fly as I can be Wear my yellow vest wheneva' doin' good deeds I might kick it in the park, bent ova' plantin' trees Or go collectin' eyeglasses to help the kiddies see Lions clubs! Lions clubs! No time for rest! Lions clubs! Lions clubs! We be rockin' the vest! Lions clubs! Lions clubs! Straight up and doin' more! Lions clubs! Lions clubs! Lemme hear you roar! (Lions clubs yeah...come on) Ballin' in my driveway, I might look pretty lame But I'm a mac-daddy neighbor, volunteering is my game I can mend a broken sump pump, know how to dig a stump up Pruning shears in my hand, I make yo' rhodo-den-dron jump up See I got skills to amaze you Fall down I'm gonna raise you You got a dry turkey sandwich? I mayonnaise you (Oh yeah...I'm making your sandwiches) Lions clubs! Lions clubs! No time for rest! Lions clubs! Lions clubs! Stone cold rockin' the vest! Lions clubs! Lions clubs! Philanthropic to the core! Lions clubs! Lions clubs! Back up we're gonna roar! If rappin' is what it takes to get our message out Then I'll put my gums in motion, let my words be flowin' You got a flag football team? [blows whistle] I start coachin' (Yeah. Flag football) See I'm more than a guy out sellin' raffle tickets I feed the hungry, help the helpless, tell the selfish where to stick it That's why I'm thumpin my Lions club chest Now it's your turn to put on the yellow vest (Yeah. What up Lion.)
