"Bad Ass" on draught, and big Ford trucks
We spend the day on the line and the nights lit up
We rock blue jeans, tees, old English D's
So baby you best to believe that's how we do it in detroit
That's how we do it in detroit,
Up in the d, d, d

We're the real deal trick, 'bout as real as it gets
We don't pay that high class hollywood sh*t
We don't start drama, but if it's around,
Say hello to a motown throw-down in detroit
That's how we do it in detroit,
That's how we do it in detroit,
Up in the d, d, d
Yeah that's how we do it in the d baby
Blue and gray all the way, and we came to play
So what's up now dawg?

With the big brown fist, with the "can't stop soul"
The hot rod city always ready to roll
We get ya what you gotta get to see this through
Cause tough times don't last, tough people do
In detroit,
That's how we do it in detroit,
That's how we do it in detroit,
Up in the d, d, d, d, d
In detroit,
For all my people in detroit
That's how we do it in detroit,
Up in the d, d, d,
All the time in detroit
For all my people in detroit
That's how we do it in detroit,
Up in the d, d, d, d
