Pronunciation: rap art tay

Sentence: (Sung(?) like a rap song...) Yo, yo,ho, ho, let me tell you, And let me tell you well, Here's what happened to me Last year just before Noel. To try and save the Planet And my earnings as well, I decided to recycle gifts and all the wrap as well. It was wrapartee devine when I found her the perfect prez. I wrapped it in a garbage bag, And hid it in our rez. My girl's face on Yule morn, was as stunned as it could be. I'd bought some bling on e-bay, and wrapped it in a bag I'd used for the dog. Snoop Doggy Dogg that is. My girl she found it Ludacris, especially when she saw all the Eminems I'd used to make the bag feel bigger. She called me a gangsta' of love, that I'd graffitied on her heart and then she raised her hand up hard and punched me clear back to the ghetto. Yo, Yo, Ho, Ho, I have to call Dr. Dre,to treat my big black shiner, because it will not go away! Yo, yo, ho, ho,...that's a wrap!

Etymology: Wrap (to cover in paper or cellophane, especially gifts) & Repartee (adroitness and clever responses; witty banter)
