Number 1
Nelly #1



Uh uh uh

I just gotta bring it to they attention dirty, that's all..



[Nelly]

You better watch who you talkin bout; runnin your mouth, like you know me

You gon' fuck around and show why the "Show Me" get called the "Show Me"

Why one-on-one you can't hold me if your last name was Haynes

Only way you wear me out is stitch my name on your pants

No resident of France; but you swear I'm from Paris

Hundred-six karats - total? Naw that's per wrist

Trying to compurr this - my chain to yo' chain

I'm like Sprint or Motorola - no service, out of your range

You out of your brains, thinkin I'ma shout out your name

You gotta come up with better ways than that to catch your fame

All that pressure you applyin it's time to ease off Before I hit you from the

blindside takin your sleeves off

As much as we's floss, still hard to please boss

Don't be lyin bitchin and cryin - suck it up as a loss

Cause your, acts is wack, your whole label is wack

And matter fact, eh eh-eh eh a-hold that



[Chorus: Nelly]

I.. am.. number one - no matter if you like it

Here take it sit down and write it

I.. am.. number one

Hey hey hey hey hey hey - now let me ask you man

What does it take to be number one?

Two is not a winner and three nobody remembers (hey)

What does it take to be number one?

Hey hey hey hey..



[unknown girl]

Do you like it when I shake it for ya, daddy? Move it all around?

Let you get a peep before it touches the ground?



[Nelly]

Hell yeah ma I love a girl that's willin to learn

Willin to get in the driver's seat and willin to turn

And not concerned about that he say, she say, did he say

what I think he said? Squash that, he probably got that off eBay

Or some, internet access some, website chat line

Mad cause I got mine, oh don't wind up on the flat line

Ohh if my uncle could see me now

If he could see how many rappers wanna be me now

Straight emulatin my style right to the "down down"

Can't leave out the store now better wait 'til they calm down

I got hella shorties, comin askin, "Yo, where the party?"

Ohh lordy - I'd like to continue to act naughty

Mixing Cris' and Bacardi, got me thinkin fo' sho'

I'm not a man of many words but there's one thing I know - pimp



[Chorus]

I.. am.. number one - no matter if you like it

Here take it sit down and write it

Hey I.. am.. number one

Hey hey hey hey hey hey - now tell me now dirty

What does it take to be number one?

Two is not a winner and three nobody remembers

Tell me - what does it take to be number one?

Hey hey hey hey..



[Nelly]

Check it, uhh, check, yo

Aiyyo I'm tired of people judgin what's real Hip-Hop

Half the time you be them niggaz who fuckin album flop

YOU KNOW! Boat done sank and it ain't left the dock

C'MON! Mad cause I'm hot; HE JUST - mad cause he not

You ain't gotta gimme my props, just gimme the yachts

Gimme my rocks, and keep my fans comin in flocks

'Til you top the Superbowl, keep your mouth on lock

Shhhhh.. {*crickets*} (I'm awake, ha ha ha!)

I'm cocky on the mic but I'm humble in real life

Taking nothin for granted blessin e'rything on my life

Trying to see a new light at the top of the roof

Baby name not Sigel but I speak the truth

I heat the booth - Nelly actin so uncouth

Top down shirt off in the coupe, spreadin the loot

With my family and friends, and my closest of kin

And I'll do it again if it means I'ma win



[Chorus]

Dirty I.. am.. Dirty, number one - no matter if you like it

Here take it sit down and write it

Hey I.. am.. number one

Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey

Dirty what does it take to be number one? whoo!

Two is not a winner and three nobody remembers

EY! - what does it take to be number one?

Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey



Heyyyy I.. am.. number one

I.. am.. number one

What does it take to be number one?

Two is not a winner and three nobody remembers

What does it take to be number one?

Hey hey hey hey hey hey



I..I.. am.. number one

Uhh uhh uh, uh uh uhh-uh uh

Listen I I, I I I-I number one..Yeah, yeah, yeah

The two is not a winner and three nobody remembers

Cause two is not a winner and three nobody remembers
