  • L.A. Lakers fast break makers
    Kinds of the court shake and bake all takers
    Back to back is a bad ass fact a claim that remains in tact
    M-a-g-i-see see you on the court
    Buck has come to play his way and his way is to thwart
    M-a-g-i-see magic of the buck
    Other teams pray for dreams
    But he don't give a [fuck]
    Penetrating the lane like a bullet train
    Comes the magic blood a telepathic brain
    Knucklehead suckers better duck
    When the buck comes through like a truck
    Scott stops pops and drops it in
    On his way back gets a little skin
    From the hand of a man named a. c. green
    Slam so hard break your t.v. screen
    Worthy's hot with his tomahawk
    Take it to the hole make your mamma talk
    I hate to burst your bubble but triple double trouble
    Is coming to your town and he's going to make rubble
    L.A. Lakers fast break makers
    Kings of the court shake and bake all takers
    Back to back is a bad ass fact a claim that remains in tact
    Lakers are the team that I watch on the telly
    Cause they got more moves
    That a bowl full of jelly
    The buck stops here - pops - then cheers
    A roar through the forum
    That deafens my ears
    The one and only know if his kind
    Sits in a throne
    Not for the records that he holds
    But for being bald and bold
    Kareem Abdul Jabbar
    All time great super super star
    I hate to burst your bubble but triple double trouble
    Is coming to your town and he's going to make rubble
    Does anybody want some Magic Johnson
    L.A. Lakers fast break makers
    Kings of the court shake and bake all takers
    Back to back is a bad ass fact a claim that remains in tact Writer/s: ANTHONY KIEDIS, CHAD SMITH, JOHN FRUSCIANTE, MICHAEL BALZARY

  • Willie from Scottsdale, AzFlea has said the line "Sits in a throne" about Kareem is partly from the unfinished Bruce Lee film, "The Game of Death." Kareem is the toughest opponent of Lee in the pagoda, and Lee finds him sitting in a large chair when he gets to the top of the building.
  • Willie from Scottsdale, Az"Buck" was the nickname given to him by his Lakers teammates, they didn't call him "Magic." His Mom called him "Junebug." :-)
