"Swagga Like Us" as written by Kanye Omari West, Shawn Carter and Writers Unknown....
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us

No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us

No one on the corner,
Mr. West is in the building
Swagger on a hundred thousand, trillion (No one on the corner)
Hey yo I know I got it first
I'm Christopher Columbus, y'all just the pilgrims
Thanksgiving do we even gotta question
Hermes Pastille I pass the dressing
My attitude is tattooed
That means it's permanent, so I guess we should address it, huh?
My swagger is Mick Jagger
Every time I breathe on the track I asthma attack it
Why he's so mad for, why he gotta have it
Cause I slaved my whole life, now I'm the master
Na-na-na, how it feel to wake up and be the shit and the urine'a-na-na-na-nal
Trying to get that Kobe number, one over Jordan

No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us

(No one on the corner) Gotta bop like this
Can't wear skinny jeans cause my knots don't fit (No one on the corner)
Gotta pocket like this
So I rock Roc jeans cause my knots so thick
You can learn how to dress just by
Jockin' my fresh, jockin' jockin' my fresh, jockin' jocking' my fresh
Follow my steps, it's the road to success
Where the niggas know you thorough
And the girls say yes
But I can't teach you my swag
You can pay for school but you can't buy class
School of hard knocks I'm a grad
And that all-blue Yankee is my graduation cap, it's Hova!
Dipping different rovers whipping with the soda, Hova!
Could you even have any doubt after doubt it was over

No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us

No one on the corner has swagger like moi, Chuch
But I'm too clean for the choir
I require, what I desire
I got stripes, Adidas
Mami scream papi no mas!
Run up in your shit just me no mas
Running this shit like I got four thighs
None has swagger like this four guys!
When it comes to styles I got several
Sharper than a swagger, dagger all metal
And my jewels, blue and yellow
The type of shit that make 'em call you Carmelo
Rules as follows stay true to the ghetto
Write your name on the bullet make you feel special, ha
What the fuck you boys talking about?
I know its us cause we the only thing you talk about

No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us

Yea, ha! Ya think? that's right,
You know see Weezy for the wordplay,
Jeezy for the bird-play,
Kanyeezy for diversity and me for controversy,
All my verses picture perfect all is meant to serve a purpose,
You ain't living what you kicking then you worthless,
Looking from the surface it may seem that I got reason to be nervous
Then observe my work and see that my adversity was worth it,
Verses autobiographical, absolutely classical,
Last thing I'm worried 'bout is what another rapper do,
Ain't nobody hot as me
Even if they rap they ass off
Blast off and have outstanding quality,
Sell a lot of records I respect and salute that,
But spitting real life on hot beats I'm the truth at
You kick it like me no exaggeration necessary,
Living revolutionary, nothing less than legendary,
Gangsta shit hereditary, got it from my dad
Flow colder than February with extraordinary swag

No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us

No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
No one on the corner have swagger like us
Swagger like us, swagger swagger like us
Like us, like us, like us, like us, like us, like us

    General CommentAh, the part where Jay-Z sings "jocking my fresh
    jocking jocking my fresh
    jocking jocking my fresh", its suppose to be "checking my threads
    checking checking my threads
    checking checking my threads"

    General Commentlove it so much. like it's amazing. T.I. totally rips it. of course it would be a good song with a sample from paper planes but with kanye, jay-z, weezy and t.i. it's just amazing.

    General Commentu know, 'checking my threads' would make a lot more sense, but I'm not too sure, Jay's new song is "Jockin' Jay-Z", so I figure it might be 'jocking my fresh'. I dunno, anyone know Jay-Z and wanna ask him? Haha.

    U know, a lotta people been sayin how TI killed it, but truthfully, I don't c it. I thought Lil Wayne's verse was sick, maybe I just dun understand wha TI is really rappin bout. From his first couple of lines, I thought he would actually talk bout some controversial issue ("you go see Weezy for the wordplay,
    Jeezy for the birdplay,
    Kanyeezy for diversity and me for controversy,") but I felt he didn't say anythin controversial at all in his verse. I dunno, maybe someone can explain it to me.

    General Commentcricket, T.I. is rapping about how other rappers just rap lyrics from their heads and not the experiences, like he has. He respects other rappers, but most haven't lived up to the rap game like he has with all the controversy he's been apart of. Real life experiences make a better impression then fake ones like other rappers in the game create to sell their buy. T.I. makes his shit up from life, unlike made songs by a producer and such. He has had controversy and in a way, the lyrics he spits are controversial to the song in a way.

    But that's my opinion in it. All the rappers are tight and he's legit with their causes and reasons for rapping, but his ego is known as a controversial one. And I type way too much. lol

    General Commenthaha, dat's actually a good explanation. I heard dat TI is now writing down wha he is gonna rap now, instead of just memorizing lines and just spittin dem, dunno how true it is. Could be right, TI's rap here is much tighter dan I remember.
