4. Can't Hold Us

MACKLEMORE

"Can't Hold Us"

[Intro:]

Ay, ay, ay

Good to see you, come on in, let's go

Yeah, let's go

Alright, alright

OK, uh, alright, OK

Alright, OK

Return of the Mack, get up!

What it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn’t.

Looking for a better way to get up out of bed

Instead of getting on the Internet and checking a new hit

Get up! Fresh out, pimp strut walking, little bit of humble, little bit of cautious

Somewhere between like Rocky and Cosby. Sweater gang, nope, nope y’all can’t copy

Yup. Bad, moon walking, this here is our party, my posse's been on Broadway,

And we did it our way.

Grown music, I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it

And yet I’m on.

Let that stage light go and shine on down,

Got that Bob Barker suit game and plinko in my style.

Money, stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds,

But I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town

Trust me. On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustler,

Chasing dreams since I was fourteen with the four track bussing

Halfway cross that city with the backpack, fat cat, crushing

Labels out here,

Now they can’t tell me nothing

We give that to the people,

Spread it across the country

Labels out here,

Now they can’t tell me nothing

We give it to the people,

Spread it across the country

Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we’ll fight 'til it’s over

So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us

Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we’ll fight 'til it’s over

So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us

Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Now, can I kick it? Thank you. Yeah I'm so damn grateful.

I grew up, really wanted gold fronts

But that’s what you get when Wu Tang raised you

Y’all can’t stop me, go hard like I got an 808 in my heart beat

And I’m eating at the beat like you gave a little speed to a great white shark on shark week

Raw. Tell me go up. Gone!

Deuces goodbye. I got a world to see, and my girl she wanna see Rome,

Caesar make you a believer. Now I never ever did it for a throne.

That validation comes from giving it back to the people. Now sing this song and it goes like

Raise those hands, this is our party

We came here to live life like nobody was watching

I got my city right behind me

If I fall, they got me. Learn from that failure gain humility and then we keep marching ourselves

Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we’ll fight 'til it’s over

So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us

Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we’ll fight 'til it’s over

So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us

Like the ceiling can’t hold us

And so we put our hands up

And so we put our hands up

Wa oh oh oh wa oh oh oh wa oh oh

Let's go!

Na na na na na na na na (aha)

Hey

And all my people say

Na na na na na na na na (that's right, feels good)

Hey

And all my people say

Na na na na na na na na (it's alright)

(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

And all my people say

Na na na na na na na na

Ma-ckle-more

[Album version ending:]

Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we’ll fight 'til it’s over

So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us

Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we’ll fight 'til it’s over

So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us

Like the ceiling can’t hold us.

[Music video ending 2x:]

Let the night come, before the fight's won

Some might run against the test

But those that triumph, embrace the fight cause

Their fears then prove that courage
