DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince We Live In Philly Lyrics

Music in philly baby
Music in philly baby
Music in philly baby

I heard it said somebody had told me way back when
That when we dream its always in black and white
Well that's something I cant really attest too
You know because I dream in technicolour
I dream that dr julius irving walked right to the YMCA
On 52nd and chestnut street
He had on a top ten on one foot and a jack prosell on the other
So he said he wanted to go
I wanted to head down to kung fu theatre
At the golden you know or something like that
Said the ?? jill scott and patti labelle
Ooh we're playing at the spectrum
He was like I don't know it was weird he had a basketball for a mouth
And when he spoke it was like I don't know arrhythmic dribble or something
It was cool you had to be there
So all of a sudden we're at bartrem high
And their playing grabs and hank gathers are there
And bo kimble
And pooh richardson
Remember him
Well I do
And lionel simmonds and randy wood it was like a oasis of athletes
And bob overton and you know dawn stayley
Remember remember
How she ripped it at tavis had him wide open
The whole city would come and see
And I was their with dr julius irving right
So I went over and maurice cheeks and alan iverson are rapping
Really rapping
And like bobby dance and lady b was having a party
Somebody told me and cosmic kev
And harry p butterball the tough crew
Steady b kool c and schooly d we're gonna be their
And grandmaster melle was the dj
Robbie v was the emcee
Scanner boys poppin n lockin you know how they do that thing
When they do that uh uh uh
Mr softy
Cheese steak hoggy
Tasty cake
gotta get my mind of food
gotta dream a little dream you know what I mean
mustard pretzel
Herbs barbeque
?? very very black
Cherry soda
Gotta dream a little dream get my mind off a food
So I digress
Frankie beverley is on the radio
Singing like sunshine and rain yeah you know the one
On the boom box
In my neighbours kitchen I get up on I get up on the counter and im wearing my flip flops
And pink rollers in my hair
And Ms jackies talking about going down belmont plateua
West river drive
And ?? hunting park
61st street and then all of a sudden
Joe frasier jumps out the closet
And kicks rockys ass
And all them laugh
We live in philly baby
We live in philly baby
We live in philly baby
We live in philly baby
We live in philly baby
Ain't the mind funny
