Welcome to a brand new generation.
You don't know, so let me help you understand.
You see, you try to build yourself a reputation
so you can prove to everyone that you're the man, yeah.
So why is it us that make you feel so helpless?
You better get it out while you still can.
'Cause when those lights go on around you and nobody gives a damn,
you're gonna wish that you had taken our advice.
That's right.

I've been down, I've been out. Now I can't keep my face off a cover.
That ain't what it's about, you still have so much left to learn

Congratulations (congratulations)
They say you're the man (they say you're the man)
Congratulations (congratulations)
You see I do what you can't (see I do what you can't)
And until they go and take my name off of the shelves (guess what?)
Congratulations, we're gonna give you hell.

Get 'em, Matty.

They try to do it like me but they do it all wrong.
I'll pass the torch when someone better comes along. (Yeah, right.)
Congratulations to every label that ever turned me down.
Me and my top 20 record aren't too worried about it now.
I hope this lesson taught is a lesson learned.
Now go and bury your head while me and Kellin rule the world!

Congratulations (congratulations)
They say you're the man (yes I am)
Congratulations (congratulations)
You see I do what you can't (see I do what you can't)
And until they go and take my name off of the shelves
Congratulations (congratulations, congratulations)

Could you please give us the spotlight 'cause I have something to say.
You may not like the subject but I'll say this anyway.
We're so sick of all this so-called shitty music that you play.
So could you please do us a favor? Stay the fuck out of our way

Congratulations (congratulations)
They say you're the man (they say you're the man)
Congratulations (congratulations)
You see I do what you can't (you see I do what you can't)
And until they go and take my name off of the shelves
Please, 'cause I need to make more room for myself (is that good?)
Congratulations.
