Legend

(Let the band play)

John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, heh
When I die, I just wanna be a legend
White roses on my headstone and my name in golden carats 'cause, uh
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend
John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, heh
When I die, I just wanna be a legend
White roses on my headstone and my name in golden carats 'cause, uh
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend

I'm gonna be a fucking legend, gonna live past twenty-seven
With them gates upfront my house so pearly white you'll think it's heaven
Still rocking clothes looking ratchet like I don't give a shit
'Cause once upon a time I scrounged up for that slick eighty cents
And I cherish the times I counted them nickels to feed my stomach
Then my family made me hungry 'cause I hated the struggling
I quit my job in construction, that took a huge leap of faith
And now they know the dude who's rapping with that gap in his face (Upchurch!)

John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, heh
When I die, I just wanna be a legend
White roses on my headstone and my name in golden carats 'cause, uh
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend
And when I'm gone my fucking jams will still be jamming
And all my fans will still be out here tearing shit up, raising hell and yelling
Let my sound waves live a thousand years, I'll still jam as a skeleton 'cause
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend

And I ain't used to this life, but hell I'm willing to take it
If I'm gonna be famous then I guess I'm making statements
'Cause there was times my transportation was these boots on the pavement
And now I'm riding in duallys dipped in that pearlescent paint
For years before my billboard charts my mama kept me believing
I told her I'd fight for success until my damn heart stopped the beating
From now to then it's opposite on how these populars treat me
Still Johnny Cash with middle fingers saying fuck a celebrity

John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, heh
When I die, I just wanna be a legend
White roses on my headstone and my name in golden carats 'cause, uh
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend
And when I'm gone my fucking jams will still be jamming
And all my fans will still be out here tearing shit up, raising hell and yelling
Let my sound waves live a thousand years, I'll still jam as a skeleton 'cause
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend

Small town, 'shine sipping, tailgate doping when the beat drop
Churchman level high, all my haters need binoculars
Because I was a nobody, now I'm the beast of the pines
I got evicted from duplexes, now I got shooters on dial
I'm just too barely walking, tiptoeing through all of these snakes
But staying humble to my people, I'm the king of the stix
And I'll live up under a bridge before I go sell my soul
You know I'm going for gold, the best story that's ever told

John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, heh
When I die, I just wanna be a legend
White roses on my headstone and my name in golden carats 'cause, uh
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend
And when I'm gone my fucking jams will still be jamming
And all my fans will still be out here tearing shit up, raising hell and yelling
Let my sound waves live a thousand years, I'll still jam as a skeleton 'cause
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend

When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend
When I die I'm gonna be a fucking legend
