  1. Go New York, Go

    We comin’ to you live from the Garden,
    It’s been 40 long years and we’re starvin,
    Mad props to Amar’e, for startin’ the party
    Now Melo’s filled the plate and Tyson’s takin out the garbage
    Yeah, its the new look Knicks,
    We brought along Kidd, he’s got a bottle of tricks
    Camby and Kurt, back to fight
    ‘Cause once you’re a Knick, you’re a Knick for life
    This is the year we get first place,
    Novak for 3, (even with no space)
    Try and take it to the basket,
    Tyson’ll leave you in a casket,
    And when your defense makes a mistake,
    then (BAM), JR dunks in your face
    This is a team you don’t wanna miss,
    (we are New York) We are the New York Knicks

    Ray and Tyson reminiscent of Stockton and Malone
    Last year was a struggle on that playoff bubble
    Thank god we got smart signed that discount double
    And melo’s got J’s for days
    And the chip’s a lock if he plays like he does in 2k
    If veterans get you rings, then Kidd Thomas and Sheed better bring me some bling
    Cause it costs a buck fifty just to sit in the stands
    To watch the wins tick quick like Pablo’s hands
    Us knicks fans got swag like snap backs
    It’s a wrap once we get shump and stat back
    So put 3 to your head and 1 to the sky

    It’s the Knicks and you’re gonna need an army,
    To stop the pick n roll, (WITH WHO?)
