Hey, I'm Tony Allen and I'm a ball of energy. If anything slows the game down, I'll pound my head with my own fists, I swear. I'm a first-year pro from Oklahoma State and I cried the night I became a starter for the Boston Celtics.

I'm a starter, I can do this, let's get minutes
Come on, this is cool, let's go
I'm a starter, I can do this

Gimme a defensive matchup that'll keep me busy
Guarding LeBron or Dirk Nowitzki
Kobe or McGrady, I doubt that they'd be
Having career nights on my watch
I'm only taking high-percentage shots
ESPN highlight dunks with ferocity
I'm missing all my layups because of my velocity
It's way too much to ask for finesse
Next time maybe I'll just dish it to Al Jeff
Or dunk it myself
I swear to god, I'm a starter
This is cool
Come on, this is cool, let's go

I'm a starter, I can do this, let's get minutes
Come on, this is cool, let's go
I'm a starter, I can do this

Remember Kedrick Brown? Well I'm better
I'll make you wish that your jersey was a sweater
'Cause your game grows cold when I'm all in your faces
Pick off a pass and then I'm off to the races
Prayin' for an alley-oop from GB's good graces
Good gracious! I'mma shatter the backboard
Take you all to school like I'm up at the blackboard
Goin' on world tour... or whatever
To my first NBA playoffs... ever
I'll be D'ing up all those overrated ball-hogs, I swear
I'm a starter
And you know what?
This is pretty cool

I'm a starter, I'm a starter
I'm a starter, I'm a starter
I can do this, let's get minutes
Come on, this is cool, let's go
