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

    It's long overdue but now
    Philly is 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 could eat

    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
    So we started a group and here we are
    Kickin' it just for you

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

    The spotlight is on us now
    Watch us do this
    Da da, daaa 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 were

    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
    So we started a group and here we are
    Kickin' it just for you

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

    Doom doom doom da da, doom doom doom da da
    Da di da di da da, da da, daa daa daa
    Doom doom doom da da, doom doom doom da da
    Da di da di da da, da da, daa daa daa

    Motownphilly's back again
    Doin' a little east coast fling
    Boyz II Men going off
    Not too hard, not too softWriter/s: DALLAS AUSTIN, SHAWN STOCKMAN, NATHAN B MORRIS, MICHAEL BIVENS
