hero lyrics – childish gambino

“hero”

yeah, yes i’m on top
i’m going this hard, and never gon’ stop
yeah, yes i’m on top
i’m going this hard, and never gon’ stop

(cheezy w*ssup)

[verse 1:]
let me hear you holla b*tch: actor, writer, rapper
n*gg* i do all of it
lactose tolerant, addicted to cheddar
and i spent it on a jacket man i don’t know no better
yeah it’s childish gambino, yeah i’m fly as a feather
yeah my n*gg* be suburban but my flow keep it ghetto
keep my swagger polaroid you can watch it develop
ain’t it funny in a year i went from different to special
yeah i got it together, yeah i took those chances
labels on me like i might cause cancer
yes a n*gg* flow went from camry to phantom
i’m just talking real sh*t, hopin’ you can handle
sleepin on the jet like “lier” like chandle
flyer than a jet women hoping they can land him
how we turn everything to gold that they hand em?
i am just different, that’s the only answer

[hook:]
yeah, yes i’m on top
i’m going this hard, and never gon’ stop
yeah, yes i’m on top
i’m going this hard, and never gon’ stop
i’m a hero [x8], yeah

[verse 2:]
back on my grind, n*gg* i’m a skater
she just think i’m fine, n*gg* you’s a hater
style with no name, they just want to label me
they should call it what these other n*gg*s are afraid to be
apc store walkin’ out with eight bags
yeah i’m killin’ paper, call it poppin’ tag
you ever spend three grand on designer vision
when you should really spent it on your little sis tuition?
she played my alb*m when n*body else out there would listen
i’m comin’ harder than these girls that you would swear were p*ssin’
davinci-esque, i’m the real deal
the only thing i don’t know is how fake feel
i’m living everything these other n*gg*s lyin’ bout
b*tches don’t believe me, to prove it to em i fly ’em out
she say that i’m her everything, i’m better than those other guys
i say i’m just a rapper, she tell me that’s a f*ckin’ lie

[hook]

[verse 3:]
they said me rappin’ was like mj and baseball
but that would make me mj, so motherf*ck all of y’all
trippin’ on this fame sh*t, drinking like a f*ckin fish
listen to the next track i be on that other sh*t
yes i sound weird, n*gg*, take it as a compliment
guess who’s in the house and representing like a congressman
anything i put my mind to i accomplish it
from writing scripts with tina fey to laying down the hardest sh*t
who else is doing what i’m doing? no one
and i mean girls too, intended no pun
i’m on the road son, busy like i’m bone thug
comment left anonymous cause ain’t n*body want none
she laying in my bed she gotta be bi-curious
barf on the track, the amazing and rap-furious
d*mn bloggers argue whether or not i’m serious
it’s nas’ illmatic not eddie murphy’s delirious
got the limelight, you stupid you think i’m sharing this
showing up late, promoters wondering where he is
got some nightmares, but failing’s gotta be scariest
but i would never fail, i’m a hero one of the best there is

[hook]
