Yo hip-hop, started out in the heart
Now everybody tryin to chart
Yo, now everybody tryin to chart
Come on now baby come on now baby come on now baby come on
Come on baby light my fire
Music is supposed to inspire

On exactly what an artist should be
And no concept of reality?
Now, who you know without any flaws?
And does anything they feel just because

Everything you drop is so tired
How come we ain't gettin no higher?
I know you think that you've got it all
Makes you think you're unable to fall

I know it hasn't hit you yet!
But every cause has an effect! uh-huh!
Come on baby light my fire
Music is supposed to inspire

Why you beef with freaks as my album sales peak? uhh
And be a ghetto supastar since my first album _blunted_
Or I quitted, now I spit it however do you want it!
Lightly tinted, then send it to your blcok to have my full name
I'm taking a percentage (ka-ching!) unprecedented, and still respected
Runnin red lights with my ten thousand chariots
They hail you then nail you, no matter who you are
If you slit the bag open, put your pinky in it and taste it
Come on baby light my fire
Music is supposed to inspire

Everything you drop is so tired
So how come we ain't gettin no higher?
Come on baby light my fire
Music is supposed to inspire
