You try to play it cool, like you just dont care
But soon Ill be playin in your underwear
Im like a 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
Cause down with me, Im taking you higher

Im the baddest of the bad
Im the best that youve ever had
Im the tops, Im the king
All the girls get up when I sing, yeah

Im the meanest in the place
Step up, Ill mess with your face
I dont care where you are
Look up and follow the star

Aah, Im gonna tear down the wall
I may not be here when you call
So best be givin me your all
(Ooo, hoo)

After the havoc that Im gonna wreak
No more words will critics have to speak
Ive got the answers to the tangled knot
Sleep tight in your cot

Oh baby, Ive been told that Im goin crazy
Oh baby, well, I cant be held down
Oh baby, somehow I'm keeping it steady
Oh baby, Im tearing up this town

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

I can take on anybody
I can do my thing
I dont wanna hurt nobody
But a bee has got to sting

Ima fix it if you mix it up
(Hoo, hoo)
Talk smack, and Ima gonna shut you up
(Hoo, hoo)

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

Somebody said all the world's a stage
And each of us is a player
Thats what Ive 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 cant help myself because I was born to shine

If you dont like it, you can shove it
But you dont like it, you love it
So Ill be up here in a rage
Til they bring the curtain down on the stage

Im the greatest man that ever lived
Im the greatest man that ever lived
Im 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
Radioac, dioac
(Dioactive)

I am the greatest man that ever lived
I was born to give
