Superstar
by Lupe Fiasco



(chorus verse 1)
If you are what you say you are,
a superstar, than have no fear,
the cam is here,
and the microphones,
and they want to know,oh oh ooh, yeah,

(chorus verse 2)
If you are what you say you are,
a superstar, then have no fear,
the crowd is here,
and the light are on,
and they want a show, oh oh ooh, yeah

(Verse 1)
Yeah, uh, a fresh cool young Lu,
trying to cash his microphone check 2 1 2,
wanna believe my own hype, but it's too untrue,
the world brought me to my knees, what have you brung you,
didya improve on the design didya do somthin' new?
well you're name is on the guest list, who brung you?
You, the more famous person, you come through,
and the sexy lady next too you, you come too.
And then it hit me,
standin' outside of heaven waitin' for god to come and get me.
I'm too uncool, unschooled to the rules and too gumshoe,
too much of a newcomer and too uncool.
Like shadow and Lavelle,
I battle wit' it well,
so I need a holiday like lady who sung blue,
go back, whatever you did you undo,
heavy is heaven, the devil owe me two tons too. Ha ha ha ha ha haa....

(chorus 1)

(verse 2)
And you better wear your shades,
the spotlights here can burn holes through the stage.
down through the basement past the Indian graves,
where the dinosaurs laid,
out through China,
nearly misses airliners,
Magnify times five, unless its pointed at the rhymer,
ricochets off the moon and sets the forest ablaze.
Now that's important to say, 'cause even wit' all dat,
most of us don't want it to fade.
we want it to braid,
meanin' we want it to grow, meanin' we want it to stay,
like the governor called, and he told 'em to wait,
unstrap him from the chair, put him back in his cage.
the audience ain't fazed,
and they ain't gonna clap, and they ain't gonna praise,
They want everything back, that they paid,
cause' they've been waitin' since ten to see the lights get dim. Ha ha ha ha ha ha....

(chorus 2)

(verse 3)
Chauffeur, chauffeur, come and take me away,
'cause I've been standin' in this line for like five whole days,
me and security ain't gettin' along,
and when I got to the front, they told me all of the tickets were gone.
So just take me home where the moon is mellow,
and the roses are grown,
M&M's are yellow,
and the light bulbs around my mirror don't flicker,
everybody gets a nice autographed picture,
one for you, and one for your sister,
who had to work tonight, but is an avid listener.
Every song's a favorite song and mics don't feed back,
all the reviewers say you need to go and see that.
And everybody claps 'cause everybody is pleased,
and then they all take the stage and start performing for me.
Like ha ha ha ha haa, ha ha ha ha haa, haa.....

(chorus 1)

(chorus 2)

(solo)
If you arrrreee, what you saayy you arrreee, then have no fearrrrrr....
