This is a tribute to my old stomping grounds of the Washington DC Metropolitan Area ... DMV Stand UP!

lyrics

ONE TIME - for the D . C
TWO TIMES - for the whole' MD
THREE TIMES - for the Northern V ... A
Where u Rep? - DMV ALL DAYYY

Verse 2:

I used to run around Tysons on some D M C
Till I got my own license at the D M V
Started to hit the city nightly on the G DUB P
Thats the Parkwayyy
We called it the "Sparkwayyy"
Me & T
Had dreams of blowin up like T N T
The Beltway Bombers promisin to pay homage
red yellow blue green orange line delay on it
Marvin Gaye - Kwame Toure' - still gettin taxed w/ no say on it
let freedom ring like Curtis Doyle - i need a ring
tone rapper to realize im a grown rapper
showin these yappers & whipper snappers ill be the king
ruling the world & not blowin it like when Kurtis sings
the breaks & blues - big band rhythms & swing
Duke Ellington's U street
Cherry Blossoms in Spring
REDSKINS - CAPITALS
WIZARDS - NATIONALS
DC's for Da Capitol
These are a few of my favorite things!

Chorus:

I got that DC pride
Movin w a swagger - that's my DC stride
Take em through the streets - like a DC guide
Maryland n Virgina - yeah we DC wide
Riiiight ... ?
This that DC pride
Glidin thru the city on a DC high
the free world capital - this DC ma
Make & Break (the) rules - thats what DC liiiike
haaa ... !

Verse 2:

We in this District of Columbia - city of imperfections
Where homeless people sleep beneath the monument's erections
The type of place decisions made by which you be effected
where Mayors caught smokin a rock can still get re-elected
really eclectic
murder cap - not to be effed with
Washington Bullets flyin
like Rod Strickland in red fits
entries & exits
to the politickers a nexus
we welcomin Obama but Bush was better in Texas
federal inspectors
lobbyists - generals - sexists
abmassadors & metro passengers
carry protection
in every direction
NORTH - SOUTH - EAST to the WEST END
cemetary where my pop's restin
the cops dressed in
blue & black
leavin brothers black & blue
evidence markers numbered like the street signs too
14th - 16th - 18th on through
three stars - two stripes - red & white
thanks to you I got that …

Chorus:

I got that DC pride
Movin w a swagger - that's my DC stride
Take em through the streets - like a DC guide
Maryland n Virgina - yeah we DC wide
Riiiight ... ?
This that DC pride
Glidin thru the city on a DC high
the free world capital - this DC ma
Make & Break (the) rules - thats what DC liiiike
haaa ... !

Yeah – shout-outs to the whole DMV Area … for those who don’t know that’s DC – Maryland & Virginia … Northern VA to be exact … Anybody reppin a 202 – 301 – 703 – 240 – or a 571 … You know what I’m talkin about … If you sittin bumper to bumper in rush hour traffic on the beltway – 395 – route 1 – 66 – 270 … then you know what I’m talking about … If you grew up listening to Donnie Simpson - Russ Par – Olivia Foxx – Dianne Rehm – or Kojo Namdi … You know what I’m talking about … and if you in the clubs on 18th St – M St – Adams Morgan – and you can’t wait to hit up Ben’s Chilli Bowl after hours for a half-smoke … then you damn sure know what I’m talking about!

Outro Hook x 4:

It’s taxation without representation
But now its time to represent
Represent – what!
