You try to play cool
Like you just don't care
But soon I'll be playin' in your
Underwear
I'm like the mage
With the magic spell
You come like a dog
When I ring yo' bell
I got the money
And I got the fame
You got the hots
To ride on my plane
You givin' me all
That I desire
'Cos down with me
I'm taking you higher

I'm the baddest of the bad
I'm the best that you've ever had
I'm the tops, I'm the king
All the girls get up when I sing, yeah
I'm the meanest in the place
Step up, I'll mess with your face
I don't care where you are
Look up and follow the star.

I, I'm gonna tear down the wall
I may not be here when you call
So best be givin' me your all.

After the havoc that I'm gonna wreak
No more words will critics have to speak
I've got to answers to the tangled knot
Sleep tight in your cot.

Oh baby,
I've been told I'm goin' crazy.
Oh baby,
I can't be held down.
Oh baby,
Somehow I'm keeping it steady.
Oh baby,
I'm tearing up this town.

Hey, this is what I like
Cut my heart with a modern spike.
Hey, this is nothing new
I've got more than enough for you.

I can take on anybody
I can do my thing
I don't wanna hurt nobody
But a bee has gotta string
I'ma fix it if you mix it up (Hoo, hoo)
Talk smack, and I'ma gonna shut you up. (Hoo, hoo)

I am the greatest man that ever lived
I was born to give. (I was born to give.)
I am the greatest man that ever lived, oh
Radioactive

Somebody said all the worlds is stage,
And each of us is a player.
That's what I've been tryin to tell you.
In Act 1 I was struggling to survive.
Nobody wanted my action dead or alive.
Act 2, I hit the big time.
And bodies be all up on my behind.
And I can't help myself because I was born to shine.
And if you don't like it, you can shove it.
But you don't like it, you love it.
So I'll be up here in a rage,
'Til they bring the curtain down on the stage.

I'm the greatest man that ever lived...
I'm the greatest man that ever lived...
I'm the greatest man that ever lived...

I am the greatest man that ever lived
I was born to give and give and give.
I am the greatest man that ever lived
Radioa, Dioa, Dioa, Dioactive,

I am the greatest ever lived.
I was born to give
