It’s the Mr. Marina competition

Fuck the sunset, North Beach, and the Mission

now i got your attention, so please listen

Girls on chestnut are the best, I ain’t kidding

Ish ain’t fibbing, I love Marina women

yoga pants, bright colors, ya know where ya sitting

Monoghans is where the nights begginning

Dancing at HiFi, yeah that’s where the nights ending

we all got money, and we all love spending

We’re all real close, not just facebook friending

It’s MarinaIsh, check Twitter, it’s Trending

Marina Life is a game and we all winning

we all love sinning, but don’t let it damper

our girls do bar mehod they look like a dancer

Which hood is the best? Here is the answer

The Marina, now let’s go slap cancer

99 problems but Ish ain’t one

If you have Brah problems I feel bad for you son

The Marina’s got 99 problems but Ish ain’t one

It’s Saturday, me and the crew hit chestnut

Brunch at Circa, and then yup you guessed it

More drinks, more dirnks over at campus

All the bouncers know us, they don’t even stamp us

Strawberry Fields, whenever we at Tipsy

Then over to Balboa cause all them cougars miss me

Now I’m on Unioun, it’s so exciting

Let me quench my thrist over at lighting

Fist pumping, yeah the beat bout ta drop

Go watch all my sports at The bus Stop

You don’t gotta like us, we won’t force you

But for a quick, drink go check out Horseshoe

it won’t divorce you, the Marina has no owner

it belongs to everyone, its like an loaner

every dude living here got a college diploma

but le’ts slap cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma

99 problems but Ish ain’t one

If you have Brah problems I feel bad for you son

The Marina’s got 99 problems but Ish ain’t one!
