On Top Of The World

This song is by T.I., features B.o.B and Ludacris and appears on the album Paper Trail (2008).

I used to dream (I used to dream), oh whoa
About the money and the cars and girls (and the girls)
But now I sing (now I sing), oh whoa
Because I'm sitting on top of the world (the whole world)
And now I sing, sing, sing, sing, 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world
And now I sing, sing, sing, sing, 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world

T.I.:
Man I remember, before I say that, wait, let me issue this statement
No way should reflection be mistaken for glorification
Now, I remember so vivid, me and my niggas was living
Sub-standard condition, still handling business
Still laughing and tripping, still having the bitches
I'm rapping now, reminiscing, and God damn it, we did it
From trapping, standing, and pitching with rich, we stand in the kitchen
Splitting it eight ways, flipping it eight days
Thought that while in a room it was just the way to behave
Kept the weight and the yey for most the paper we made in all dimes
I ain't lying, the pleasure was all mine
Have big work to move, but we served the small time
I always outshined the niggas with small minds
Who would have thought we would be arguably the greatest of all time?
Around here, we developed such a sound down here
But duplicate it off the steel, it can only be found here
Only listen to G's, that other shit I don't hear
Shit, they so far in the rear, why would I even care
I'm too busy being a player, staring at niggas careers
But talk about it for years and now we finally here

I used to dream (I used to dream), oh whoa
About the money and the cars and girls (and the girls)
But now I sing (now I sing), oh whoa
Because I'm sitting on top of the world (the whole world)
And now I sing, sing, sing, sing, 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world
And now I sing, sing, sing, sing, 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world

Ludacris:
They say what goes up must come down, but I ain't reached my cruising altitude
Take a look at what I did, but can you imagine what I'm about to do?
The places I'm bout to go, and the money I'm bout to see
Gave Bill Gates some binoculars and said "look out for me!"
Exceeded expectations, even at Def Jam
'Cause I married the streets and Atlanta has been my best man
My momma quit her job and now she works with six figures
'Cause I'm a self-made, nappy-headed, rich nigga
Private planes help me travel in peace
To four cities in one day and four countries in one week
'Cause I work for myself and no one else 'cause I'm too smart to
Put one of my partners right through culinary art school
Now he my personal chef, so that bread he get it
Put them all in houses, cleaned up all of my friends credit
And now they witness all the glitz and the glamor
Catch us eating at straits Atlanta with women with table manners
Order in Singapore and lobster
Celebrating coming from nothing to winning Grammys and rappers winning Oscars
And they say rappers shouldn't act nah suckers
We see Samuel Jackson like what's up mother fucker?!

I used to dream (I used to dream), oh whoa
About the money and the cars and girls (and the girls)
But now I sing (now I sing), oh whoa
Because I'm sitting on top of the world (the whole world)
And now I sing, sing, sing, sing, 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world
And now I sing, sing, sing, sing, 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world

T.I.:
I know them haters don't stop plotting and wish you would fall
'Cause I'm standing on top looking down at it all
I see you down there to y'all, it seems like I got it all
Homie I ain't get enough, I'm still trying to triple up
It's why we got StreetCred and a cool building up
Say I'm doing too much, shit, I say I ain't did enough
Remember saying "Damn, if I could just get to a million plus"
And now I'm like "Shit, what the fuck is a million bucks?"
Triple that on my bun thanks to bigs and run
But nevermind what I've been through, just look at what I become
All the shit I've avoided, what I done for my sons
And daughters, and momma, just call her
I sold dope and dropped out of school seems it's all they can see
They don't notice none of my family did that since me
I broke that cycle, now my family live a life of
Mandatory minimals, but not when the judge sentence them
Cousins in college, where you think they get tuition from?
Jeffrey standing around wishing huh
And while you standing around looking dumb
I make it happen, taking action over time, got damn good at it

I used to dream (I used to dream), oh whoa
About the money and the cars and girls (and the girls)
But now I sing (now I sing), oh whoa
Because I'm sitting on top of the world (the whole world)
And now I sing, sing, sing, sing, 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world
And now I sing, sing, sing, sing, 'cause I'm sitting on top of the world
