(It don't matter, just don't curse)

[Michael Bivins]
Yo fellas, y'all ready to do this?

[Boyz II Men]
Yeah, wassup
Boyz II Men in affect
Yeah, and it's about time
Yo, let's switch this up

Boyz II Men
Boyz II Men
Boyz II Men
Boyz II Men

1 - Motownphilly back again
Doin' a little eastcoast swang
Boyz II Men, on the way now
Not too hard, not too soft

[Shawn]
It's long overdue and now, Philly is slammin'
(Everybody it's) Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD
The eastcoast family
Never skipped a beat, while coolin' on South Street
Jet black Benz, plenty of friends
(And all the Philly steaks you can eat)

[Wanya]
2 - Back in school, we used to dream about this everyday
Could it really happen, or do dreams just fade away, yeah
Now everybody is singin' now, it's in this town, woo ooh
So we started a group and here we are
Kickin' it just for you, oh

Repeat 1

[Michael Bivins]
Yo, these four new jacks is real smooth on the harmony tip
Nate, Mike, Shawn and Wan
You know the mentality
Keep spittin' the gift

[Nathan]
The spotlight is on us now, watch us do this
Da dop.. Baa-da-dop.. Ba dop dop dop dop
Live and direct from Philly town
(Rappin' hype and we can get down)
We are ready to roll
So now the world will know that we roll

Repeat 2
Repeat 1

(Everybody it's) Boyz II Men
(Everybody it's) Boyz II Men
(Everybody it's) Boyz II Men

(Everybody it's) Boyz II Men
(Everybody it's) Boyz II Men
(Everybody it's) Boyz II Men
Everybody is singin' now, it's in this town, woo ooh

[Michael Bivins]
Now check this out, one day back in Philly
Four guys wanted to sing
They came up to me, I said "but what's your name?" (Boyz II Men!)
Hey, ya know what I'm sayin'?
Then I said, "aiight fellas, well let me see what you can do"
And then the smiling one named Wanya said "yo Mike, check this out
See if this one moves you"

[Boyz II Men]
Doom doom doom da dop
Doom doom doom da dop
Da ya ya ya dop, da dop, da oh oh oh

Doom doom doom da dop
Doom doom doom da dop
Da ya ya ya dop, da dop, da oh oh oh

Repeat 1

Boyz II Men
Boyz II Men

Boyz II Men
Boyz, Boyz, Boyz
Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD
(Mm-hmm)
