Red black green, red gold green
Dat's how we know we a fe we dream team
(repeat)

The other day
A friend gave me a call
He said that the dream team was playin basketball
Was so excited / that I hadda get a witness
The first time the nba was in the 'lympics
Players from the east/ players from the west
And you can bet that they took the very best
("except they left tim hardaway at home"
"yeah that was hella fucked up!")
But anyway
I tuned in because I was hella psyched
To see magic johnson on the same team as mike

Gettin crazy / havin lots of fun
Makin sure that they got the job done
Fans were wavin the red white end blue
It seemed strange to me / was it strange to you?
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
Some a you / may know what I mean
But if you don't then / lemme introduce you to...
My dream team!
"spearhead in the area!"

[Chorus:]
This is my dream team, my dream team
My dream team, my dream team

Well chuck d'sannouncin'/ flava's doin' color
Halftime enterntainment by dre and ed lover
Malcolm x is the coach he's drawin' up the strategy
He's choppin up america's anatomy
'cause they're the ones/ we're up against of course
Are 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/ 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 in/ to angela davis's neighborhood
She's postin up down in the extra hard wood
She grabs the pill/ and then she puts her shoulder down
Get out the way/ 'cause she's gonna throw down now
Boom /oh my god! I just can't believe it
Get anotha backboard or bettah yet leave it.
We always play for fun /but 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!"

[Chorus:]
Dream team's in the house
Dream team's in the house

Well after doin that /we be headin for the ceremony
Hand 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 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"

[Chorus:]

Yeah sista rosa perks she gets the first seat
On the bench!
And dr. King, webring him in in a pinch.

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