Mama gave birth, to a champion

To a fighter, a dreamer, a man

But I didn't always know who i was

Oh I tell ya the story is quite a bit different

Then how I had planned

 

Growin up I don't remember many smiles

Since about the age of 5

Couldn't keep up with the other kids

Had a bike I never learned to ride

Didn't know what good friends were

Till around the age of twelve

Man I was bullied for oh so long

Guess we all share that kinda hell

But I was a strong kid, somewhere down inside

I would make my name known

In the city where I reside

Got a talent for writing, a passion for speaking my mind

I tell you everything that I feel in my bones

Is what I bring to the surface tonight

You ain't got nuthin, till you got nothing left to lose

And when you got nuthin left to lose you're finally free

 

Oh my mama gave birth, to a champion

To a fighter, a dreamer, a man

But I didn't always know who i was

Oh I tell ya the story is quite a bit different

Then how I had planned

 

Now I'm a young man at the tender age of twenty-one

Got nowhere to go but man I still try and run

There's a rebellion inside me waiting to burst at the seams

Man if you didn't know me you'd think I was just plain crazy

And you're right.....I probably am

And this wasn't quite how I planned

Mama gave birth, to a champion

To a fighter, a dreamer, a man

But I didn't always know who i was

Oh I tell ya the story is quite a bit different

Then how I had planned

Mama gave birth, to a champion

To a fighter, a dreamer, a man

Oh now I know who I am

And there's a revolution waitin to be born

In the palms of my hands

Stars in stripes in my heart

And a red letter A in my soul

The future belongs to the brave

The daring, the bold

My sense of a fighter, to never give up no matter what and hold on to freedom
