The Lyrics

Get it up! It's time for the tip-off!
The ref tippped the ball up to begin the game
Ratings jumped from awesome, but it wasn't lame
Celtics jumped to win it on an 8-point swing
You should've heard that John Tesh do his thing

Let's rock
EVerybody let's rock
EVerybody on the playground blocks
We're dancing to the roundball rock

Jason Williams hits the 3's from all alone
J. O'Neal's a great prep like Moses Malone
The Carmelo from Syracuse make them boards bang
The whole Knickerbockers are a New York Gang

(repeat chorus)

Mr. Larry Legend told him to Kareem:
You're the finest shot blocker I ever seen
You're sure to drop dimes on our company
But I wanna break your ankles with me

(repeat chorus)

The Yao Ming is taller than the Rolling Stones
Peja's in the corner takin 3's alone
The T-wolves are partners winning fair & square
'Cause KG is partnered by Mr. Sprewell

(repeat chorus)

Shaq's trade to Miami made the rumors shake
Kobe Bryant's trial case made the headlines break
Odom is the goods out with 6 assists
I wanna get LeBron with his brand new kicks

(repeat chorus)

Kind of reminds me of the NBA on NBC.
