[Nas:]
That summer... the summer '88 is the best...

[Mariah:]
But that's your nostalgia though, "just for the nostalgia" you gotta say

[Nas:]
That's my most nostalgic moment of hip hop music ever

[Mariah:]
Right

[Verse 1: Mariah]
I'll just sit right here and sing that good old school shit to you
I won't fool you, I won't make you be my own
Oh baby you know, all that love-making we did
Boy it was so real I wanna feel that again
Long lost friend from way back when Eric B. was president
Tell me where the melody went
And if you still care, say "yeah yeah yeah"
Sing it like they used to do
This one's for me and you

[Chorus: Mariah]
La di da di da di da
That's how you do it
That's how to make it okay
Oh baby you know, make love
That's how you do it
Just like we did back then
Well, this is dedicated to you

[Verse 2: Mariah]
I just sit right here and sing that good old school to you
I won't fool you, I won't make you be my own
Oh baby you know, that love-making we did
Boy it was so real I wanna feel that again
And all your friends from way back then
Tell me can you vision us
36 Chambers high
Feels like we're there, mm yeah, yeah, yeah
Remix of a fantasy
I hear them saying back to me like..

[Chorus: Mariah]
La di da di da di da
That's how you do it
That's how to make it okay
Oh baby you know, make love
That's how you do it
Just like we did it back then
Well, this is dedicated to you

[Verse 3: Nas]
Nah, we don't wish today's game was old again
We just wish it wasn't full of draconian, Babylonian, phony men
F-O-H, my summation fascinates, we have debates
Who's the greatest living that passed away
I ask MC, see what she has to say
Eric B or Master P
Some see it differently, '87 meant to me
I try to describe it, you try to relive it
I try to revive it, hoping that you get it, yeah
Somethin' 'bout "La Di Da Di" got inside our bodies
Somethin' 'bout my Adidas coming out the speakers
Used to do doo-wop or the Peewee Herman
Rest in peace, Heavy D, "Money Earnin' Mt. Vernon"
Let's go

[Outro: Mariah]
La di da di da di da
That's how you do it
That's how to make it okay
Oh baby you know, this is dedicated to you
This is dedicated to you
Oh baby you know, this is dedicated to you
This is dedicated to you
This is dedicated to you
Oh baby you know, this is dedicated to you
This is dedicated to you
This is dedicated to you
Oh baby you know, this is dedicated to you
This is dedicated to you
This is dedicated to you
