      Lyrics for Nelly - "Self Esteem (feat. Chuck D)"

      You got to believe in yourself
      Don't let nobody tell you what you can't be
      You got to believe in yourself, yeah
      And everything else'll work out, you'll see
      Oh (oh) oh, oh, oh!

      [Chorus:]
      You got to believe in yourself
      Don't let nobody tell you what you can't be
      You got to believe in yourself, yeah
      And everything else'll work out, you'll see
      Oh, oh, oh, oh
      I think I, no, I know I can
      I think I, no, I know I can
      I think I, no, I know I can
      I know I can, I know I can, hey

      [Chorus:]
      Ay, yeah
      Nobody,
      Everybody I think I

      You see my poppa was a rollin' stone
      And my momma had problems of her own
      But I still managed to make it out okay
      Oh, oh
      Although I'm hailed as a hometown hero
      Still in my hometown I'm seen as a negro
      But man, that's okay
      Uh uh uh uh uh uh
      It's so many obstacles in life to overcome
      And as soon as you jump over one here come another come
      But we got to be strong, and set examples for our sons
      If the sun don't shine, then the decaying has begun

      [Chorus]

      They say I'm old enough to go to war
      But I ain't old enough to play in the NBA no more
      Now you tell me, what's wrong with that?
      I pledge allegiance all the way to Iraq
      But ain't nobody pledgin' to me when I get back
      Tell my Uncle Sam he wrong for that
      Ah ah ah, woo!
      You see my self-esteem, I'm never leavin' home without it
      They told me I'd never make it, they told me I ain't doubt it
      Now tell me whoever make it, now tell me I ain't got it
      I'm seein (No Limits) nigga, who sayin' I ain't ('Bout it)?
      Woo!

      [Chorus]

      [Chuck D]
      That's right, you gotta believe it y'all, c'mon
      I know I can
      I think I, no, I know I can
      I think I, no, I know I can
      Know I can, know you can

      Rock on Nelly, rock on my brother
      Keep your head up over the storm, young fella (oh!)
      Got a letter from the government, opened and read it
      Uhh, and told 'em all to forget it
      C'mon, 'cause we believe in the future
      Uncle Sam sent his man to recruit ya
      You still can't trust it, 'cause you came this far
      End of discussion, when you KNOW who you are

      [Chorus]

      [Chuck D ]
      That's right believe, c'mon now
      Don't let nobody tell you, what you can be
      C'mon Nelly, tell 'em man
      That's right, rockin' it positivity, that's right
      I know I can, I know I can
      I think I, I know I can

      You gotta believe it
      You gotta believe, my brother
      You keep doin' your thing
      That's right, keep that head up
      All the way to the future
      That's right, for the babies baby
      For the babies
