Staring down Cedar Grove up on Indian Hills
See a skyline littered with triple deckers and gin mills
Years of tot lot pass my eyes
Reflecting faces that have gone by
Adams corner embedded in my soul

In defense of Dorchester
Home to a thousand dreams and Beantown legends
In defense of Dorchester
Historical revelence cemented in her sidewalks

Gather up my thoughts stroll through the observation fields
Think about Dot detractors well up with a rapid anger
Because I can't help but sing for her
It gets real personal when she is slurred
Can't forget Garvey and Hemey Park

In defense of Dorchester
A real community not idle zip codes
In defense of Dorchester
I forged a life on these streets and city roads

This is who I am
This is where I'm from
Wear it on my sleeve
Predictably the fire brand

Never stay silent when she's assailed
Into my heart advocacy nailed
Lower Mills I did not forget you

In defense of Dorchester
Home to a thousand dreams and Beantown legends
In defense of Dorchester
No matter where the gang winds up, you'll always be my home
