  • When they tell you that you'll never get over (ha ha ha)
    Just tell 'em they're number one (el captain partner)
    You're a champion (yeah, the ali of my day, you know me)
    Don't believe 'em when they try to say it's over!
    (i can't hear ya, I'm way up here, what you say?)
    Just tell 'em they're number one (it's over for who, numero uno partner)
    You're a champion (ha ha ha, let's go bust!)

    Now, there's, nothin' you can do to stop a nigga from within
    With the hunger of a lion I secure another win (hey!)
    So passionate, you might even misinterpret it as arrogant
    I'm goin' in (hey!)
    I'ma make the world feel my pain
    While I'm showin' you my muscle and I hustle through the game
    And even though they leave us in the hood like we ain't shit
    We ain't got nothin' but everything to gain
    Look, even if a muh'fucker try to pop me
    I'm so blessed, do anything that you could do to stop me (stop me)
    Now I'm climbin' up the ladder and I'm jumpin' at the top
    You might wanna call me, rocky
    See there's more of us, ugly
    You don't really wanna war with us, trust me
    So glorious, that we from the bottom
    Still we victorious, hug me

    I see it in your eyes, it ain't hard to tell
    They're watchin' you (can't nobody ever stop what I'm doin')
    They just tellin' you lies, they want you to fail
    They're plottin' on you (and they can never stop my movement!)
    So, don't believe 'em when they try to say it's over
    (you know exactly what to tell 'em!)
    Just tell 'em they're number one (number one)
    You're a champion!

    Hey, see the websites lyin' tryin' to block my shine
    Don't you know you never will stop my grind?
    In a drop-top flyin' like I don't got time
    Got e'rybody surprised that I won't drop dimes
    What's on yo' mind? best get me off it
    At least quit lyin' if you must keep talkin'
    Go on with the nonsense, best keep walkin'
    Boy how you sue us, send the lawyers to the office
    A lot of y'all got sprung like that shawty
    Couple months off, I'll be right back shawty
    With a brand new swag and a brand new .40
    And a brand new ride, give a damn who saw it
    Nation-wide news, nigga yeah you saw it
    Shawty need a bodyguard for his bodyguard, don't he?
    Tip fallin' off sound kinda odd, don't it?
    Y'all hate to see me ball? take it up with god homie


    Any situation where you might get fed up
    Gotta stay focused, homie keep your head up
    It don't really matter what the next one is doin'
    Homie gotta handle your business and then you better step up
    Live to the fullest for the dream you're pursuin'
    Ain't nothin' in the work gon' really stop what you're doin' (ohh!)
    Go hard no matter what they be sayin'
    Nigga don't quit cause you know we gotta keep it movin' (ohh!)
    Take a look and see yourself in me
    Cause it's all about we (we)
    Me and you securin' a win together
    So we could be the best that we could ever be (ohh!)
    Stay up on your grind, be the first one to - set it
    People try to shut me down, I won't, let it
    I'm so stubborn for the success
    You know my motto, don't stop, get it, get it!
