I’m Outstanding Lyrics By Shaquille O Neal

    i was born threesixseventytwo i think it’s on a wednesday
    hail to the moon just like kunta kinte
    that means i’m gifted from the getgo mom’s you never let go
    mad thanks for raising me right bro
    you gave me confidence to stop the nonsense
    didn’t live in bel air like the fresh prince
    times are hard times are rough
    didn’t have toys ‘r’ us toys but i had enough love
    plus the guidance from above
    to go to the park sweatin’ push and shove
    maybe then for a dunk like you told me
    then there were a few times when dad had to scold me
    prayed for my safety i know how you was feeling
    didn’t want me wheeling and get to drugdealing
    remember when you asked me this one day
    who i wanna be like i said dr j
    then you said good now you gotta go
    take the damn ball and slam it through the hole
    mom cracked a smile daddy gave a frown
    i said to myself i can’t let them down
    so make way i’m coming in for a landing
    and nothing’s gonna’ stop me from being outstanding

    i’m outstanding

    now let’s skip to the time when i was fifteen
    shaq is in the house no shaq is on the scene
    now my name’s in papers girls caught the vapors
    kids look up to me like a skyscraper
    now a role model i mean a role figure
    then i ask myself can i get any bigger
    my dream is coming true but coming true slowly
    then i remember what mom and dad told me
    remember this son you are the one
    shoot your gift like a gun and never forget where you come from
    you’re young gifted and black
    if they can’t say shaquille o’neal then make ’em scream shaq’
    like the fam do in the stands too
    when i freak the funk on a dunk they ah ooh
    from high school to college they gave me enough knowledge
    make that gift and now it’s time for me to fulfill my dream
    to be in the leaders’ game like hakeem
    i’ll make the backboards shatter
    fans chitchatter
    even make the other centers get madder
    that’s me who can it be
    the master of disaster seven foot three
    brother ain’t no other in the nation
    i’m born from my mother but i’m god’s creation
    i’m outstanding

    i’m outstanding

    cause now i’m outstanding
    wave your hands and pump your fist
    when i’m on the court you know it’s strictly swish
    cause there’s some things that i gotta do
    tape up the ankle pump up my shaq shoe
    and now it’s time to take care of business
    to run up and down the court with nick and dennis
    scott but i won’t stop
    gotta keep striving until i reach the top
    gonna take a peek over the mountain
    i flow like a fountain
    peace i gotta go and i’m out and…
    but before i go wave your hands
    peace to all my family friends and fam
    i’m outstanding

    i’m outstanding
