Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is just my interpretation of the acoustic version of this tune. I pretty much use syncopated rhythms
throughout the song. I know that it's not perfect but I hope that you like it. 

Intro: (I do it differently every time but this is basically what I go with.)
Dm      GM GM F F F F

[Chorus:]
Dm                         Bb
Motownphilly's back again 
Gm             C          A
Doin' a little east coast fling 
Dm          F     Dm
Boyz II Men going off 
Gm            Am
Not too hard, not too soft 


F             Dm        
It's long overdue but now 
F
Philly is slammin' 
C                 Bb    
Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD 
    A
The east coast family 

Dm
Never skipped a beat, na 
                 
While cooling on South street
Em              C
Jet black Benz, plenty of friends 
A
And all the Philly steaks you could eat 
Dm
Back in school we used to dream about this everyday 
A               G             C           Am
Could it really happen? Or do dreams fade away 
Dm              F
Then we started singing them 
     A
They said it sounded smooth 
Bb                        Am
So we started a group and here we are 
C                   A
Kickin' it just for you 

[Chorus]

F                Dm
The spotlight is on us now 
Gm       F
Watch us do this 
(muted rhythm)
Da da, daaa da da, da da da da da da 
Dm                          F 
Live and direct from Philly town 
        Am                  Gm
Rap and hype and we can get down 
       F
We are ready to roll 
   Am     
So now the world will know that we were 
Dm                        
Back in school we used to dream about this everyday 
A               G              C          Am
Could it really happen? Or do dreams fade away 
Dm              F
Then we started singing them 
     A
They said it sounded smooth 
      Bb                  Am
So we started a group and here we are 
C                   A
Kickin' it just for you 

[Chorus]

Dm
Doom doom doom da da, doom doom doom da da 
            Gm            C  
Da di da di da da, da da, daa daa daa 
Dm
Doom doom doom da da, doom doom doom da da
            Gm            C       A
Da di da di da da, da da, daa daa daa 

[Chorus]
