The Lyrics

Hup, hup, haaaa
Bump it
Hup, hup, haaaa
And bump it (harder) [4x]
Keep your eye on the ball/and go beat ‘em all right

[verse 1]
Other teams hate on us/'Cause they can't play like us
Why they playin' us today?/We gonna beat ‘em anyway
Let's be real to them/They really not good, they know it
We got all the moves from servin' back down to us spikin' (yes, yes)
Our players our amazing/Our volleyball team's hair-raising
You know it/everyone expects us to hit
S-E-R-V-E we serve/S-E-T that's right we set, yeah
We always win/Y-E-S and lovin' it so

Smack it down (smack it down) [3x]
And bump it (harder) [6x]
Set, spike, oh, oh, oh, oh/Spike, oh, oh, oh, oh/yo, yo
Keep your eye on the ball/And go beat ‘em all right
We return all your serves/Goin' left and right

[verse 2]
Check this out right here
You wanna hit it to us/but when we hit it back
You guys all scream and shout/and whine and cry ‘cause you're all scared
We hurt a player/But that's okay, it's only one down
We're good all around/We win in every town
Yeah, it's our way/that's who we play that's who we beat
V-O-L-L-E-Y-B-A-L-L to the max/Now it's 4 to 25
When we play you shake in fear/shake in, shake in, shake in fear
And then we smile from ear to ear/'cause we gonna


Serve (serve) Bump (bump) Set (set) Three (three) Spike (spike)

[verse 3]
We facin' a team from the Philippines/They look pretty scary and pretty mean
They all stacked up with big boys and huge girls like I have never seen
Don't be intimidated/Or be discriminated/Their team's just overrated
Play and/they'll be decimated

S-I-D-E-O-U-T/playin' volley-volley-volley-volley-ball
Let our skills just blow your mind (blow your mind, man)
C'mon now, c'mon now, here we go
S-I-D-E-O-U-T/it's just volley-volley-volley-volley-ball
We're so good we make them whi-i-i-i-ne
