Gym Cla** Heroes
Cool and Dre (this is)
You silly for this one
It's Travie (why you doin' this to me)

I started rappin' back in the cla**
Scribbling tracks
In hopes that one of my jokes
Would have the pretty young things laughin'

The chubby little bastard
With a nack for little debbies snacks
But what I lacked in looks
I made up for it in pa**ion

No advance and plus we make it happen
Your conscience more obnoxious
Then that laughy Taffy snappin'
Goodbye yesterdays rags

Hello high fashion
Hands before you's a man
That built a castle with sand
With no regards for tidal-waves

And finally established
'Til the water comes in gallon drums
And wipes away my palace
But now I'm sittin' lovely off

In wonderland with Alice
With purple people pa**in' me
At the caterpillar's chalice
Ha ha, you probably thinking

I'm wrong right?
Like I should quit
Writing these songs right?
Tell you what do it better

I just might
Take it back to 86
You wanna lick, sike!

Don't let the TV mislead you
Me and you dude we are not equal
F*** you this is for my people
F*** you this is for my people

Don't try to hide like I can't see you
Your parents must've been trans
And so see through
F*** you this is for my people
F*** you this is for my people

[Chorus: x 4]
Put up your peace sign, put your index down

Before I utter words
And before I start to begin
Let me make sure you clear
I'm about securing the wind

I puzzle up my words
While I piece another concoction
'Cause I'm stubborn with the thought
That failure was never an option

I grinds like a carpenter
Until my caleceous's bleed
With the pa**ion from my heart
To the many mouths that I feed

That's why I look at most of you
Stupid I know it's odd
Because you can't really do
Nothin' to me unless you GOD

But bein' that none of you ain't him
You can't f*** with me
Now watch me erase them
Now trust me see I'm so determined

I'm walkin' through the heap of gauntlets
While the fire is burnin''
Or how the tires
Turning on the rim of the V

I laugh and shake it off
The s*** they be doin' to me
Wit all the yappin' and talking
And so and so think

That you can ever stop the kid
Oh no

So if you get in my way you know yer done son
You best believe what I say you better run son
F*** you because I do this for my loved ones
F*** you because I do this for my loved ones

You better kneel down
And pray cause where I come from
We goin' hard everyday that's how the fights won
F*** you because I do this for my loved ones
F*** you because I do this for my loved ones

[Chorus: x 4]
Put up the peace sign, put the index down

Look mom no hands
Yer little boys a man
Everything you said is finally settin' in
Trainin' wheels fell off and I kept peddling

Now I'm ridin' wheelies on this industry
Say the word I'll ghost-ride
This b**** instantly
Good lookin' pop on the strength that you givin' me

Wasn't for you Gym Cla** would be history
I'm on my upstate s***
I Was Brooklyn broke but now I'm upstate rich
Gettin' brains from two dames with French accents

Now I mess with local chicks
I get em upstate s***
You prob thinking I'm wrong right?
Like I should quit writtin' these songs right?

Tell you what do it better I just might
Take it back to 86 you want a lick, sike!

Now it's a lot of yall that can't stand me
'Cause my resemblance to prince is uncanny
But f*** you this is for my family
F*** you this is for my family

Upstate new york to Miami
Up late recording in my jammies
I do it for my family
F*** you this is for my family

[Chorus: x 4]
Put up your peace sign, put your index down
