Before you go any further, go ahead and press play on the video embedded below. The lyrics start after two bars and mimic the 1979 classic "Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang. If you haven't heard it, the original is HERE. Enjoy!

I said a flip flop, C-P to the Threezie,
The flip flip flop, and you don't stop
‘Gainst the Grit Grind Grizzlies, we all fall and get beat,
To the rhythm of the shufflin' feet.

Now, what you see is not a pitch but I'm floppin' on the ground,
Cuz me, my friends the Galaxy have made LA a soccer town
See, I am CP3, and I'd like to say hello,
To the Gli Azzurri of Italy, who first taught me
how to run this show.

But first, I gotta Whine Whine! The glaring and the glaring!
‘Gainst the Grit Grind Grizzlies, from the floppin' to the glaring,
Let's flop, I don't stop,
Rock the floppin' that'll make refs stop the clock .

Well so far you've heard my voice but I brought two friends along,
And the next on the mic is my man Blake,
C'mon, Blake, sing that song!

Check it out I'm the F-A-K-E, the T-U-F-F,
And the rest is G-U-Y,
You see I go by the code of Chris's backup's dad,
For these reasons I'll tell you why.
You see, I'm six foot ten, with lots of cool friends
So all you refs, now hear my plea,
Z-Bo beats me up and it hurts my brand
when I don't get to dunk so viciously.
I got tons of ads, I got Kia cars
That definitely ain't that bad,
I got Justin Bieber and his boys hanging out at the pad.
So after the game it's more of the same,
Me and Gronk out on the town,
I got a medical kit, so I don't get
Sick from the girls Gronk brings around.

Lemme talk about penicillin, erythromycin, took so much I had to laugh
Wrecked immune system, eight games I've missed em
Cuz that's how I got staph.

Everybody go Gronk, Floyd, Me and Biebs, Johnny Football whatcha say? (Say what?)
We're the douchebag crew, comin' straight for you
Makin' jokes about how you're gay.

Everybody go Gronk, Floyd, Me and Biebs, Johnny Football whatcha say?
This is no mirage, we're New Entourage,
They call me Turtle but that's okay.

Big Baby, you're in the league? It's on you, so what you gonna do?

Well it's on ‘n on ‘n on on ‘n on,
The flop don't stop until the break o' dawn.
I said B-I-G, B-A-B, Y with a Triple X-L
I said I go by that unforgettable name
And I'm ready to play when they ring the bell
Well, my name is known all over the world
By all the sandwich makers and the candy stores
I'm goin' down in history
As the fattest power forward that could ever be
Now I'm feelin' the pains and I'm feelin' the lows
Of uric acid crystals fillin' up my toes
Ya start poppin' ya fingers and stompin' your feet
But the gout won't leave til you cut out organ meat
And then damn! It's the di-a-bet-es.
I said damn! It's the blue sleeve unis.
I'll just throw my hands high in the air
Hope that guards can't get around my derriere
I'll rock my extra girth without a care
At least I'm not with Dwight, that was a nightmare
Now, I'm not as thin as the rest of the gang
Yet I've learned to flop just the same
And when you see a flop from a man of my size
They say it has the power to hypnotize
Singin' on ‘n ‘n on ‘n on ‘n on
The flop don't stop until the break of dawn
Singin' on ‘n ‘n on ‘n on on ‘n on
The flop don't stop until the break of dawn

Yo Blake, flip the line, flop the take,
Reprise the chorus, after the break.

Everybody go Gronk, Floyd, Me and Biebs, Johnny Football whatcha say? (Say what?)
We're the douchebag crew, comin' straight for you
Makin' jokes about how you're gay.

Everybody go Gronk, Floyd, Me and Biebs, Johnny Football whatcha say?
This is no mirage, we're New Entourage,
They call me Turtle but that's okay.

REPEAT CHORUS A MILLION TIMES
