Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

This is how we do it!
(This is how we do it!)
Sha la la la la la lo!
Shabada lo lo lo whoa!
Lo lo lo low-oh-oh!

[Verse 1]
This is how we do it
It's Friday night, and I feel all right
The party is here on the West Side
So I reach for my 40 and I turn it up
Designated driver take the keys to my truck
Hit the shore cause I'm faded
Honeys in the street say, "Monty, yo, we made it!"
It feels so good in my hood tonight

The summertime skirts and the guys in kani
All the gangbangers forgot about the drive-by
You gotta get your groove on, before you go get paid
So tip up your cup and throw your hands up
And let me hear the party say

I'm kinda buzzed and its all because
(This is how we do it)
South Central does it like nobody does
(This is how we do it)
To all my neighbors, you got much flavor
(This is how we do it)
Let's flip the track, bring the old school back
(this is how we do it)

[Verse 2]
This is how we do it, all hands are in the air
And wave them from here to there
If you're an O.G. mack or a wannabe player
You see the hood's been good to me
Ever since I was a lower-case g
But now I'm a big G
The girls see I got the money
Hundred-dollar bills y'all

If you were from where I'm from then you would know
That I gotta get mine in a big black truck
You can get yours in a '64
Whatever it is, the party's underway

So tip up your cup and throw your hands up
And let me hear the party say...

(This is how we do it)
(All my homies)
I'll never come wack on an old school track
(This is how we do it)

[Rap Interlude]
Check it out!
Once upon a time in '94
Montell made no money and life sure was slow
All they said was 6' 8" he stood
And people thought the music that he made was good
There lived a D.J. and Paul was his name
He came up to Monty, this is what he said
You and Oji are gonna make some cash
Sell a million records and we'll make in a dash

Ohh, I'm buzzin' because...


Oh, it's party time!
Straight up comin' from the West Side
O.G.s got the flavor
And Monty does it like nobody does
C'mon now, Def Jam, you know what it is
