They're playing basketball
We love that basketball
They're playing basketball
We love that basketball

They're playing basketball
We love that basketball
They're playing basketball
We love that basketball

Now basketball is my favorite sport
I like the way they dribble up and down the court
I keep it so fresh on the microphone
I like no interruption when the game is on

I like slam dunks that take me to the hoop
My favorite play is the ally-oop
I like the pick-n-roll, I like the give-n-go
And it's basketball, Bow Wow, let's go

They're playing basketball
We love that basketball
They're playing basketball
We love that basketball

I got the rock in my hands
There ain't no tellin' what I'm gonna do wit it
When I got possession, I'm gonna have to fool wit it
I might cross you up and fake one way

Turn around and hit you wit the MJ fade-away
I throwin' down passes like J-Kidd
Takin' cats to the rack and I'm dunkin' over 'em like T-Mac
When I'm in the paint, I play wit that Alonzo style
I'm like Darius, 'cuz I can shoot two miles

Don't too many players get offers like me
I'm back-n-forth likely
Shake the cheks off your Nike's
They almost had me in a suit at the draft

'Cuz it look like a free throw
When I be shootin' from half
The first step like Iverson, blow pass you
He'll leave nottin' but net, but I can go blast too

When I'm in the paint the defense so shook
They don't know if I'm gonna put up a slow hook
Or dish up a no look
See my game consist of a whole lotta moves

You would think I learned from the Harlem Globe Trotters
JD gonna lead us to the ring
Fab and Bow Wow is the only players
That makes the cheerleaders wanna sing

They're playing basketball
We love that basketball
They're playing basketball
We love that basketball

(Now, now, now)
Now tell me were you in the joint?
The night MJ scored 63 points
When the Lakers won titles back to back
Didn't give nobody no kind of slack

When Vince Carter came and stuck his arm in the rim
Everybody went crazy in the whole dang gym
Dikembe Mutumbo standin' tall
Playin' D wit desire, it's basketball, sing

They're playing basketball
We love that basketball
They're playing basketball
We love that basketball

They're playing basketball
We love that basketball
They're playing basketball
We love that basketball
