The Lyrics

I know i said it was all work for me for the rest of the semester but felt i had to write about nelly having a top 4 song about shoes
2 years ago it started
And you were singing songs about pot
And this summer we heard too much of
A song about being hot
In between you said that you were
Number one but you are not
And all of my dreams that you'll stop are shattered
You'll stop are shattered
And,

You're so lame
I can't believe your song is about shoes
You're so lame
I have no doubt your song is about shoes
It's true, It's true

I think you and Craig David
Met during last spring sometime
Well, you said that what's your flava's pretty bad
But that you could make a rhyme
That would make his corny song look
Like Shakespeare in his prime
And now it seems that no doubt you have done that
That you have done that
And,


You're so lame
I can't believe your song is about shoes
You're so lame
I have no doubt your song is about shoes
It's true, It's true

Well, today I looked at the Billboard charts
And I was naturally stunned
To find out number four is the Nelly song that
Has its own title which is ¡§air force ones¡§
Well this is the song that is about
The shoes you like to wear
And that is all, why does the radio play it
Radio play it
And

You're so lame
I can't believe your song is about shoes
You're so lame
I can't believe your song is about shoes
You're so lame
I can't believe your song is about shoes

You're so lame
There is no doubt your song is about shoes
It's true, It's true, It's true

Nelly is cornell haynes junior, a rapper who does party music about things such as nike air force ones and the heat of the room and gets played way too much
