    Lyrics

    [Verse 1: Macklemore]
    Return of the Mack - get up
    What it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn't
    Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
    Instead of getting on the internet and checking a new hit
    We get up, fresh out, pimp strut walking
    Little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
    Somewhere between like, Rocky and Cosby, Sweater Gang
    Nope, nope, y'all can't copy that
    Bad, moonwalkin', this here, is our party
    My posse's been on Broadway, and we did it our way
    Grown music
    I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it
    And yet I'm on
    Let that stage light go and shine on down
    Got the Bob Barker suit game and Plinko in my style
    Money
    Stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds
    But I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town
    Trust me, on my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T sh*t hustling
    Chasing dreams since I was 14
    With the 4 track, bussing
    Halfway cross that city with the backpack, fat cat crushin'
    Labels out here, nah they can't tell me nothing
    We give it to the people, spread it across the country
    Labels out here, nah they can't tell me nothing
    We give it to the people, spread it across the country

    [Hook: Ray Dalton (x2)]
    And then we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we'll fight till it's over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can't hold us
    Like the ceiling can't hold us

    [Verse 2: Macklemore]
    Now, can I kick it? Thank you
    Yeah I'm so damn grateful
    I grew up really wanting gold fronts
    But that's what you get when Wu-Tang raised you
    Y'all can't stop me, I go hard like I've got an 808 in my heart beat
    And I'm eating at the beat
    Like you gave a little speed to a great white shark on shark week
    Raw. Tell me go up, gone! Deuces, goodbye
    I've got a world to see;
    And my girl, she wanna see Rome
    Caesar'll make you a believer
    Nah, I never ever did it for a throne
    That validation comes
    So I'm giving it back to the people now
    Sing that song and it goes like...
    Raise those hands, this is our party
    We came here to live life like nobody was watching
    I got my city right behind me;
    If I fall they got me
    Learn from that failure, gain humility
    Then we keep marching, I said

    [Hook: Ray Dalton (x2)]
    And then we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we'll fight till it's over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can't hold us
    Like the ceiling can't hold us

    And so we put our hands up
    Woo-oh-oh-oh, Woo-oh-oh-oh, Woo-oh-oh-oh
    Let's go
    Na na na na na na na na
    And all my people say
    Na na na na na na na na
    And all my people say
    Na na na na na na na na
    And all my people say
    Na na na na na na na na
    Mack-le-e-e-e-e-moore

    [Hook: Ray Dalton (x2)]
    And then we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we'll fight till it's over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can't hold us
    Like the ceiling can't hold us
