This is how we funk on the Northside
Ooh (Uh)
Oh ooh
Hey (Ooh)
Oh ooh

This is how we funk on the Northside
Players ain't gon' stop till it's sold (Uh)
This is how we funk on the Northside
2 get paid n the Moneyapple, got 2 b bold

When U cop ur paper next Friday
This is what I want U all 2 do
Never mind the vapor come up my way
We got something freaky 4 U
Never U mind what U find n the state of ur mind
Ur city or part of town
When U get up n the Moneyapple
Baby, U got 2 get down
Down...
Hey...!

This is how we funk on the Northside (Hey oh)
Players ain't gon' stop till it's sold (Uh)
This is how we funk on the Northside (Yeah)
2 get paid n the Moneyapple, U got 2 b bold

When U get tired of the music
That's playin' on that no-funk radio (Uh)
We gotta taste the bass that'll take ur face 2 the ace of spades
U never ever thought ur ugly face would go
Bass! (Hit me 1 time)

Never U'll cry when U buy urself a single from the NPG
Got joints 4 days
Chart b gone, we get it on stage, baby
Aftershow's on the Internet, players gettin' paid!
Hey, this is how we funk
Oh yeah (Ooh yeah)
Hey, this is how we funk (Hey)

Everybody say this is how we funks on the Northside (Oh Lord)
Players ain't gon' stop till it's sold (Hey yeah, ow...)
This is how we funk on the Northside
2 get paid n the Moneyapple, got 2 b bold (How...)

With a bone 2 play
We can find the mayor talk about that piece of land
Fill a garden, y'all
Fill a fan with some hand-picked images like the man
Sweet potatoes like U never seen (Tell it)
Martin wasn't the only 1 that had a dream
Now dig (Whoo)

This is how we funk on the Northside (This is how we... funk)
Players ain't gon' stop till it's sold (Uh)
This is how we funk on the Northside (This is how we skate every day)
2 get paid n the Moneyapple, got 2 b bold (Love 4 1 another)

This is how we funk on the Northside (NPG)
Players ain't gon' stop till it's sold (Uh) (So funky, good 2 me)
This is how we funk on the Northside
2 get paid n the Moneyapple, got 2 b bold (Hey)

This is how we funk on the Northside
Players ain't gon' stop till it's sold (Uh)
This is how we funk on the Northside
2 get paid n the Moneyapple, got 2 b bold

This is how we funk on the Northside
This is how we funk on the Northside
Got 2 b bold (We got 2)
Oh...
Funk...
This is how we funk on the Northside {repeat}
