The Lyrics

The NBA is the only league you ought to be singing the blues...
Da da, da da da da
Da da, da da da da, da da da

Rockets, and Hawks
Going for a foul shot
Celtics, and Hornets
Rebound it to get it

Oh, making me a baller
The way they do my life, oh
Making me a baller
The way they do my life, this is living
This is living, yeah, yeah, baby, this is living

The playoffs, 1 chance
Who's going to the big dance?
Ratings soar up high
Telling hockey to die
Oh, making me a baller
The way they do my life
Making me a baller
The way they do my life, oh

Da da da,
da, da, da

Lay-ups, slam dunks
Fast break, Shake 'n bake
Grizzlies, and Knicks
and Mavericks of Texas
Oh, making me a baller
Shoot it with your hands
Yeah, Making me a baller
Shoot it with your hands

Youth is increasing
TV tracks down the season
Fanbase is spreading
So many games we're heading
Oh, making me a baller
just to understand

Da da da,
da da da
da da da
