Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team

Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team

The other day a friend gave me a call
He said that the dream team was playin' basketball
Was so excited I had a get a witness
The first time the NBA was in the 'lympics
I tuned in because I was hella psyched
To see Magic Johnson on the same team with Mike

Gettin' crazy and havin' lots of fun
We were makin' sure that they got the job done
The fans were wavin' the red white end blue
It seemed strange to me was it strange to you?
The brotha's on the street and everyone is scared a ya
So how could ten Africans represent America?

Bullshit it didn't mean a thing 'cause in the same year
We saw Rodney King
So I thought that I would put a team together
A team that I have been waitin' for forever
Well some of you may know exactly who I mean
But if you don't then let me introduce you to
My dream team

Spearhead in the area

Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team

Well chuck D's announcin' flava's, flava's doin' color
And halftime entertainment is by Dre and Ed Lover
Malcolm X is the coach he's drawin' up the strategy
We're choppin' appart all America's anatomy
'Cause they're the ones we're up against of course
Our general manager is chief crazy horse
Huey Newton 'cause he was extra hard
He's the one who would be playin' at the shootin' guard

I dreamed Charles Barkley would be played by Marcus Garvey
He'd be throwin' people off his back and makin'
Sure they never got a rebound rebound and he'd throw it to the outlet
Nat Turner 'cause he can turn the corner when he's out there
He be flyin' through the air and throwin' passes like he really doesn't care
Behind the back and in between the legs
He's handlin' the rock as gently as an egg
He's throwin' it into Angela Davis's neighborhood
She's postin' up down in the extra hard wood

When she grabs the pill and then she puts her shoulder down
Get out the way because she's gonna throw down now
Boom oh my God, I just can't believe it
Well get another backboard or better yet leave it
We always play for fun, we always play for keeps
The game is over and the loser's gotta sweep
Up the glass that we busted in the ass
Set the record straight about America's past
This is my dream team

Spearhead in the area

Dream team's in the house
Dream team's in the house

Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team

Well after doin' that we be headin' for the ceremony
And on the heart is a bunch of baloney
The spirit of the '68 Olympics
Black power people can I get a witness
Fist in the air this is the proper manners
While Jimi Hendrix is fuckin' up the spangled banner
Up into the sky miles Davis blows a horn
Look into the bleachers, it's Bill Clinton sellin' popcorn

So now we jump and we have a celebration
Shaquille 0'neal would provide the entertainment
To some of you this is a far fetched scheme
But to me, I'll tell you what it is
This is my dream team

Spearhead in the area

Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team

Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team

Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team

Because I like to shoot hoops not brothas
Because I like to shoot hoops not brothas
Because I like to shoot hoops not brothas
Because I like to shoot hoops not brothas

Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team

Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know, dat's how we dream team
