  • Song Lyrics:
    Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones
    Got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo

    Yes, I am the victim of a Basketball Jones
    Ever since I was a little baby, I always be dribblin'
    In fac', I was de baddest dribbler in the whole neighborhood
    Then one day, my mama bought me a basketball
    And I loved that basketball
    I took that basketball with me everywhere I went
    That basketball was like a basketball to me

    I even put that basketball underneath my pillow
    Maybe that's why I can't sleep at night
    I need help, ladies and gentlemens
    I need someone to stand beside me
    I need, I need someone to set a pick for me at the free-throw line of life
    Someone I can pass to
    Someone to hit the open man on the give-and-go
    And not end up in the popcorn machine
    So cheerleaders, help me out

    {cheerleaders sing repeatedly...}
    (Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
    (I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)

    {while Tyrone Shoelaces sings/speaks...}
    Oh, that sounds so sweet
    Sing it out
    C'mon Coach Booty, Red Blazer, sing along with me
    That be bad, honky
    Yeah
    I want everybody in the whole stadium to stand up and sing with us
    Oh yeah, sing it out like you're proud
    All right, everybody watchin' coast-to-coast, sing along with us
    Bill Russell, sing along with us
    Chick Hearn, sing along with us
    Chris Schenkel, don't sing nothin'

    Oh, it feels so good
    Gimme the ball
    I'll go one-on-one against the world, left-handed
    I could stuff it from center court with my toes
    I could jump on top of the backboard, take off a quarter, leave fifteen cents change. I
    could, I could dribble behind my back. I got more moves than Ex-Lax. I'm bad; I could
    dribble with my tongue. Here I go down court, try to stop me You can't stop me, 'cause I
    got a Basketball Jones. Here I come. That's my hook shot with my eyebrow. Yeah, I could
    dunk it with my nose I'm, I'm bad as King Kong, gimme the ball I'm hot, I'm hot as...,
    I'm hot as..., I'm hot as... uh Uh, uh, uh, uh

    (Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones)
    (Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones)
    (Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones)
    (Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones)
    {fade}
