Champion
by Kanye West



Chorus
(Did you realize
That you were a champion)

(Kanye)
Yes I did
So I packed it up and brought it back to the crib
Just a lil somethin', show you how we live
Everybody want it but it aint that serious
Mhmmm thats that shit
So if you gon do it, do it just like this

Chorus
(Did you realize
That you were a champion)

You dont see just how wild the crowd is
You dont see just how fly my style is
I dont see why I need a stylist
When I shop so much I can speak italian
I dont know I just want it better for my kids
And I aint sayin we was from the projects
But everytime I wanna layaway or deposit
My dad'll say when you see clothes, close your eyelids
We was sort of like Will Smith and his son
In the movie I aint talkin' bout the rich ones
Cuz every summer
He'll get some brand new harebrain scheme to get rich from
And I dont know what he did for dough
But he'll send me back to school with a new wardrobe
and ay, ay, ay ,ay

Chorus
(Did you realize
That you were a champion)

I think he did
When he packed it up and brought it back to the crib
Just a lil somethin', show you how we live
Everything I wanted man it seemed so serious
Mhmmm thats that shit
So if you gon do it, do it just like this

Chorus
(Did you realize
That you were a champion)

When it feel like living's harder than dying
For me giving up's way harder than trying
Lauryn Hill said her heart was in Zion
I wish her heart still was in rhyming
Cuz who the kids gon' listen to
Huh
I guess me if it isnt you
Last week I payed a visit to the Institute
They got the Dropout keepin' kids in the school
I guess i cleaned up my act like prison do
If not for pledge at least for the principle
They got the CD they got to see me
Drop gems like i droped out of PE
They used to feel invisible
Now they now they invincible

Chorus
(Did you realize
That you were a champion)
This is the story of a champion
runners on their mark and they pop their guns
Stand up stand up here he comes
Tell me what it takes to be number 1
Tell me what it takes to be number 1

This is the story of a champion
runners on their mark and they pop their guns
Stand up stand up here he comes
Tell me what it takes to be number 1
Tell me what it takes to be number 1

(Did you realize
That you were a champion)
Yes I did
So I packed it up and brought it back to the crib
Just a lil somethin', show you how we live
Everybody want it but it aint that serious
Mhmmm thats that shit
So if you gon do it, do it just like this
(Did you realize
That you were a champion

oh yeah
