heart of a champion lyrics – nelly

(feat. lincoln university vocal ensemble)

[nelly exercising and breathing hard]

[nelly]
c’mon, uhh, uhh
i guess he’s back ‘urr derrty, s-t-l derby
i’m like magic to kareem, man you tell me i ain’t worthy
i ain’t speaking ’bout a jersey, i’m speaking ’bout income
did you hear that elizabeth? here come the big one!
i put mo’ money in the community than you got in yo’ budget
i wipe my *ss with yo’ advance to the toilet then flush it
my last stance be a stance of a general custard
i hot dog cause i can, i got the cheese and mustard
i got the stats of a hall of famer – in just two records
that’s why i’m back up at the superbowl – with julius peppers
i got that can’t stop, won’t stop, in my veins
that’s why they can’t stop, won’t stop, screaming the name
nelly! nelly! go tell a friend to tell a friend
i’ma keep the same grin whether i, lose or win
up, or down ten, i’ma fight to the end
[breathing hard] let’s go

[chorus: l.u.v.e.]
ain’t no way they can stop me now nelly
cause i’m on my way, i can feel my ring coming
it’s the blood of a champion, pumping
deep inside my veins, too much pride to be running
i’ma get what i can and more, even if
my blood, my sweat, and my tears don’t mean nothing
it’s the heart of a champion (it’s the heart of me)
(it’s the heart of a..) in me

[nelly]
i’m the first pick, the first round, signing bonus profound
playing for his hometown, rapping for the home ground
and getting buffer like michael redd, tell ’em again
i gets buffer like michael redd, heard what i said?
the mv-p of the game, intensity still the same
i’m shooting out from my reign, with peyton manning type aim
can’t stop me from scoring so they result to just hacking
so there’s, three of us now – me, a.i. and shaq’n
from the look to the as i say
hover man with more heart than hallmark on valentine’s day
i’m the one that you’ve been raven about, like ray lewis
i think it hard to go and change your route
cause you don’t know if i’m blitzing or if i’m sitting and reading
waiting for you to go and trip, drop back and throw up a brick, man
ain’t no way they can – no, ain’t no way they can – no
ain’t no way they can – no, ain’t no way they can – no

[chorus]

[nelly]
it’s like a big time decision made on how i can twurk it
if hard work pays off then easy work is worthless
my work habit ain’t no habit man, i do it on purpose
i push myself to the limit so my talent’ll surface
so now it’s, curtains and drapes, on anybody who hates
disliking what i’m reciting, biting what i’ve been writing
i’ve been dogfighting, scratching and clawing on every height
trying to make you remember me like you +remember the t*tans+
cause i’m a warr-ior, my daddy was a soldier
a vietnam vet, lil’ derrty i thought i told ya
i’m supposed to, whip up your town in testarossas
heating like folgers mayne, i’m young black and rich
as good as it gets, and giving your point guard fits
he think he done seen pressure mayne, but he ain’t seen shhhh…
ain’t no way they can – no, ain’t no way they can – no
ain’t no way they can – no, ain’t no way they can – no

[chorus – repeat 2x]
