Doom doom doom da da, doom doom doom da da

Da di da di da da, da da, daa daa daa oh

(Michael Bivins' rap)
Now check this out
One day back in Philly
Four guys wanted to sing
They came up to me I said
What's your name? (Boyz II Men)
Ya know what I'm sayin'
Than I said all right fellas
Well let me see what you can do
And then Wan said
Yo Mike, check this out
See if this one move you

Motownphilly back again
Doin' a little east coast swing
Boyz II Men going off
Not too hard, not too soft

It's long overdue but now
Philly's slammin'
Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD
The east coast family
Never skipped a beat, na
While cooling on South Street
Jet black Benz, plenty of friends
And all the Philly steaks you can eat

Back in school
We used to dream about this everyday
Could it really happened?
Or do dreams fade away, yeah
Then we started singin'
They said it sounded smooth
So we started a group and here we are
Kickin' it just for you

Michael Bivins' rap:
Yo these four new jacks is real
Smooth on the harmony tip
Nate, Mike, Shawn, and Wan
You know the mentality
Keep flippin' the gift

The spotlight is on us now
Watch us do this
Da da, daa da da, da da da da da da
Live and direct from Philly town
Rap and hype and we can get down
We are ready to roll
So now the world will know that we flow

Back in school we used to dream about this everyday
Could it really happen?
Or do dreams fade away
Then we started singing them
They said it sounded smooth
Sowe started a group and here we are
Kickin' it just for you

Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men, Boyz II Men
Then we started singing them
They said it sounded smooth
