It’s My Dime

After watching Halleluka, a music video about a good rookie on a mediocre Dallas team, I thought it’s time to update this song about the Showtime 2.0 Lakers.

This ain’t a song ‘bout a broken jump shot
No silent prayer for that last play-off spot
I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
No need to hear my voice
When my dad is so loud

It’s my dime
Be quick, don’t hurry
Wooden said that champs don’t worry
I just wanna play like it’s Show Time
(It’s my dime)
The Staples court is there in plain sight
Luke Walton said
“you got the green light”
I just wanna play like it’s Show Time
It’s my dime

This is for the fans who stood their ground
For B.I. and Kuzma, who never backed down
The season’s getting harder, make no mistake
Drainin’ threes ain’t enough
You’ve got to make your fast breaks

It’s my dime
no need to worry
if I ever shoot like Curry
I just want to play like it’s Show Time
(It’s my dime)
JaVale McGee can dunk so pretty
Like Magic said
Forget Lob City
I just wanna play like it’s Show Time
It’s my dime

You better stand tall when the Celts are in town
Don’t bend, don’t break, when they back you down

It’s my dime

I love to feed ‘em
Just share the rock, that’s how you lead ‘em
I just want to play like it’s Show Time
(It’s my dime)
I’ll pay my dues and show good manners
We’re gonna raise
Another banner!
I just wanna play like it’s Show Time
(It’s my dime)

And I got reasons
This has gotta be the season
I just wanna play like it’s Show Time
(It’s my dime)
You think our title hopes make no sense
Just wait until LeBron
Plays defense!
Then we gonna play like it’s Show Time
(It’s my dime)
