The Old Fashioned Way

Going to get a three point play,
Going to get it the old fashioned way.
Got to jump to the ball,
And be as strong as an ox so you will not fall.

Then chin it with your bows out wide,
Hold it tight so you’re a force inside.
Take one drop step back,
Into the big man Jack.

Pound it once, for that dribble
Make sure you get to the middle.
Get your feet planted,
So your shot won’t be slanted.

Then jump so high,
That you will touch the sky.
Draw the foul,
And let out an angry growl.

You got a three point play,
You got it the old fashioned way.
