"Magic Johnson" as written by and Michael Peter Balzary Chad Gaylord Smith....
L.A. Lakers fast break makers
Kinds of the court shake and bake all takers
Back to back is a bad ass fact a claim that remains in tact
M-a-g-i-see see you on the court
Buck has come to play his way and his way is to thwart
M-a-g-i-see magic of the buck
Other teams pray for dreams
But he don't give a [fuck]
Penetrating the lane like a bullet train
Comes the magic blood a telepathic brain
Knucklehead suckers better duck
When the buck comes through like a truck
Scott stops pops and drops it in
On his way back gets a little skin
From the hand of a man named a. c. green
Slam so hard break your t.v. screen
Worthy's hot with his tomahawk
Take it to the hole make your mamma talk
I hate to burst your bubble but triple double trouble
Is coming to your town and he's going to make rubble
L.A. Lakers fast break makers
Kings of the court shake and bake all takers
Back to back is a bad ass fact a claim that remains in tact
Lakers are the team that I watch on the telly
Cause they got more moves
That a bowl full of jelly
The buck stops here - pops - then cheers
A roar through the forum
That deafens my ears
The one and only know if his kind
Sits in a throne
Not for the records that he holds
But for being bald and bold
Kareem Abdul Jabbar
All time great super super star
I hate to burst your bubble but triple double trouble
Is coming to your town and he's going to make rubble
Does anybody want some Magic Johnson
L.A. Lakers fast break makers
Kings of the court shake and bake all takers
Back to back is a bad ass fact a claim that remains in tact

    General CommentI've never been a sports fan myself, but it's obviouse that Anthony is a big fan, and not to mention Chad. I guess this doesn't require much explaining, it's a simple song with a great sound.

    General CommentGreat song about the greatest basketball player of all time. I saw RHCP play with Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube and Flea was wearing this great throwback Byron Scott jersey with old-school shorts too.

    General Commentthese lyrics are missing a chunk. after it says "l. a. lakers fast break makers
    kings of the court shake and bake all takers
    back to back is a bad ass fact a claim that remains in tact" the second there are some lyrices that weren't posted
