This is how we do it. 
Its friday night, and I feel all right 
The party is here on the west side 
So I reach for my 40 and I turn it up 
Designated driver take the keys to my truck 
Hit the shore cause Im faded 
Honeys in the street say, monty, yo we made it! 
It feels so good in my hood tonight 
The summertime skirts and the guys in kani 
All the gang bangers forgot about the drive-by 
You gotta get your groove on, before you go get paid 
So tip up your cup and throw your hands up 
And let me hear the party say 
 
I'm kinda buzzed and its all because 
(this is how we do it) 
South central does it like nobody does 
(this is how we do it) 
To all my neighbors you got much flavor 
(this is how we do it) 
Lets flip the track, bring the old school back 
(this is how we do it) 
 
This is how we do it, all hands are in the air 
And wave them from here to there 
If youre an o.g. mack or a wanna-be player 
You see the hoods been good to me 
Ever since I was a lower-case g 
But now Im a big g. the girls see I got the money 
A hundred-dollar bills yall 
 
If you were from where Im from then you would know 
That I gotta get mine in a big black truck 
You can get yours in a 64 
 
Whatever it is, the partys underway 
So tip up your cup and throw your hands up 
And let me hear the party say 
 
I'm kinda buzzed and its all because 
(this is how we do it) 
South central does it like nobody does 
(this is how we do it) 
Ynv, scc, all my homies 
(this is how we do it) 
Ill never come wack on an old school track 
 
Rap: 
 
Check it out! 
Once upon a time in 94 
Montell made no money and life sure was slow 
All they said was 68 he stood 
And people thought the music that he made was good 
There lived a d.j. and paul was his name 
He came up to monty, this is what he said 
You and og are gonna make some cash 
Sell a million records and well make in a dash
