Church boy!

Oh, superstar
Never drove around in a fancy car
Kids looked at me funny
Momma she had no money
But she always told me "Baby, know who you are."

Ooh, don't ya know,
It was hard always wearing my cousin's clothes.
Can you hand me down a dream
With those hand-me-down-jeans?
Thought I'd never make it but I made it y'all.
Cause I had

Jesus! When I had nothing, had to struggle and was up to no good.
Jesus! The reason I'm still breathing is cause, Jesus, Jesus
Jesus! It's crazy how you love me even when I don't love You like I should.
Jesus [Repeat: x3]

Oh, look at me
I know I'm not all I'm supposed to be
I'm gonna get it right
Didn't get here overnight
So while you're waiting please wait patiently

I say ooh, it's so sweet
To know that You were always in love with me
Thought my game was clever
But no one can play me better than You
You know You always win cause You're


When I think about Your name I go, ooh
How You took away my pain I go, ooh
Every night at the club
Ain't no wife at the club
That Jesus He be showing me love
They said I wasn't gon' make it Kirk
I know how that sound
It's only by His grace I can say 'look at me now'

Hey Mr. DJ (Hey Mr. DJ)
Can you play my favorite song (will you play my favorite song)
I heard it say it's gonna get better
We gon' make it out the hood someday

(Hey Mr. DJ) Hey Mr. DJ (Hey Mr. DJ)
I wanna hear that song about Jesus
I heard my mama crying
I gotta let her know He's gonna wipe her tears away


Jesus! Hey Mr. DJ (Hey Mr. DJ)
Jesus! Hey Mr. DJ
Jesus! Hey Mr. DJ (Hey Mr. DJ)
