Here are the lyrics to  “I Was A Rock” by Chance The Rapper:

[Verse 1: Chance the Rapper]
Back in time
I lost track of time
Rolling on the road
Christmas eves and valentines
Seem like the days before
I came I went I did well
I did I really meant well
But I almost missed my beat
So thank you for saving me a seat

[Bridge: Chance the Rapper]
I swear ain’t nowhere greater
Ain’t nowhere brighter
Ain’t nowhere better, better, better, better
Ain’t no one prettier
Ain’t no one wiser
Ain’t nowhere better, better, better, better

[Muhammad Ali]
God is watching me
God don’t praise me because I beat Joe Frazier
God don’t give nothing about Joe Frazier
God don’t care nothing about England or America
As far as wealth
It’s all his
He wants to know how do we treat each other

[Chorus: Chance the Rapper + Choir]
I was a rock
I was a rock and roller
Back in my day (Back in my day)
But now I’m just a rock (I was a rock)
I was a rock and roller
Back in my day (Back in my day)
But now I’m just a rock
I was a rock

[Verse 2: Chance the Rapper]
Steady hold
I’ve grown weary and old
We’re as close as we’ll ever be
I was gone I have places to be
And of course you’re in the place I look

[Bridge: Chance the Rapper]
I swear ain’t nowhere greater
Ain’t nowhere brighter
Ain’t nowhere better, better, better, better
Ain’t no one prettier
Ain’t no one wiser
Ain’t nowhere better, better, better, better

[Pre-Chorus: Chance the Rapper]
And I’m still standing here
Standing still
I won’t be moved
How used to when

[Chorus: Chance the Rapper + Choir]
I was a rock
I was a rock and roller
Back in my day (Back in my day)
But now I’m just a rock (I was a rock)
I was a rock and roller
Back in my day (Back in my day)
But now I’m just a rock
I was a rock
I was a rock
I was a rock and roller
Back in my day (Back in my day)
But now I’m just a rock (I was a rock)
I was a rock and roller
Back in my day (Back in my day)
But now I’m just a rock
I was a rock
