  • In my mother's belly and I'm startking to kick
    Nine months in the womb and I'm making her sick
    Squeeze through the womb and I land in the room

    Don't know who we are can't really tell
    We do the council flats and we do some jail

    We don't like school, in a week we go once
    Don't like the police, 'cos they kick and they punch
    God bless what a stress and the stress comes at once
    But remember, boy, you're a superstar

    [Chorus]
    (Can't take it)
    Can't break it, can't take who you are
    (Can't take it)
    Can't break it, can't take who you are
    (Can't take it)
    So remember, boy, you're a superstar

    They call you council estate, they call you "can't go straight"
    They call you crime rate, they call you "can't go straight"
    And you're bending all the rules, where you bury your tools
    Bending all the rules, where you bury your tools

    Your family can't visit, cause the prison's too far
    You can't be who you be, cause you're not who you are
    Remember, boy, you're a superstar
    Remember, boy, you're a superstar
    So remember, boy, you're a superstar

    [Chorus]

    S, s, superstar
    (Can't take it)
    You know who you are
    (Can't take it)
    S, s, superstar
    (Can't take it)
    You know who are you
    (Can't take it)
    You're a superstar
    Can't break it
    So remember, boy, you're a superstar

    [Chorus: x2] Writer/s: ADRIAN NICHOLAS MATTHEW THAWS, BERNARD BUTLER
