"Can't Hold Us" as written by and Ben Haggerty Ryan S Lewis....
Ey ey, ey
Good to see you, c'mon let's go
Yeah, let's go
Alright, alright, okay, ah, alright, okay
Alright, okay

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
We 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 that
Bad, moonwalkin', 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 the 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 hustling
Chasing dreams since I was 14
With the 4 track, bussin'
Halfway cross that city with the backpack, fat cat, crush shit
Labels out here, nah they can’t tell me nothing
We give it to the people, spread it across the country
Labels out here, nah 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 till 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 till 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 wanting gold fronts, but that’s what you get when Wu-Tang raised you
Y’all can’t stop me, I go hard like I've got an 808 in my heart beat
And I'm meeting 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've got a world to see
And my girl, she wanna see Rome
Caesar make you a believer, nah
I never ever did it for a throne
That validation comes, so I'm giving it back to the people now
Sing that 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, I said

Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till 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 till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

So we put our hands up
So we put our hands up

(Let's go) Na, na, nana, na, na, nana, na
Hey
And all my people say
Na, na, nana, na, na, nana, na (thats right, feels good)
Hey
And all my people say
Na, na, nana, na, na, nana, na
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
And all my people say
Na, na, nana, na, na, nana, na
Mack-le-eh-eh-eh-eh-more

Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till 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 till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

    General CommentMacklemore is from Seattle. So is Sir-Mix-A-Lot, who helped pave the way for Seattle rap artists. The line "my posse's been on Broadway" is a reference and tribute to Sir-Mix-A-Lot's song "Posse on Broadway".

    General CommentThe lyrics to the chorus are slightly wrong. He says,"Can we go back, this is the moment."
