Fundisha
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 (Yeah)

Bow Wow
Now basketball is my favorite sport (Uh huh)
I like the way they dribble up and down the court (C'mon)
I keep it so fresh on the microphone
I like no interruption when the game is on (Game's on)
I like slam dunks that take me to the hoop (Yeah)
My favorite play is the alley-oop
I like the pick-n-roll, I like the give-n-go
And it's basketball, Bow Wow, let's go

Fundisha
They're playing basketball (All around the world)
We love that basketball (Yeah, to the beat, y'all)
They're playing basketball (Yeah)
We love that basketball (Yeah, wassup)

Bow Wow
Yo, I got the rock in my hands, 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 fadeaway
I'm throwin' down passes like J-Kidd, takin' cats to the rack
And I'm dunkin' on 'em like C-Mac
When I'm in the paint, I play wit that Alonzo style
I'm like Darius 'cause I can shoot two miles

Fabolous
Don't too many players get offers like me
I'm back-n-forth, likely shake the checks off your Nikes
They almost had me in a suit at the draft
'Cause it look like a free throw when I be shootin' from half
The first step like Iverson, blow pass you
He'll leave nuttin' 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 a ring
Fab and Bow Wow's the only players that make cheerleaders wanna sing

Fundisha
They're playing basketball (Put it up, put it up, put it up now)
We love that basketball (Put it up, put it up, put it up now)
They're playing basketball
We love that basketball

Jermaine Dupri
Now now now now tell me, were you in the joint
The night MJ scored sixty-three points
When the Lakers won titles back to back
Didn't give nobody no kind of slack
When Vince Carter came, stuck his arm in the rim
Everybody went crazy in the whole damn gym
Dikembe Mutumbo standin' tall
Playin' D wit desire, it's basketball, sing

Fundisha
They're playing basketball (All around the world)
We love that basketball (Put it up, put it up, put it up now)
They're playing basketball {All around the world)
We love that basketball (Put it up, put it up, put it up now)
They're playing basketball {All around the world)
We love that basketball (Put it up, put it up, put it up now)
They're playing basketball
We love that basketball
