Madonna - Iconic Lyrics




[Intro - Mike Tyson:]
I'm the best the world has ever seen. (I'm the best ever!)
I'm somebody you'll never forget cause I work hard and sweat in my tears. (Can't be stopped!)
I'm never falling again and if I did, I'd come back

[Verse 1 - Madonna:]
If you try and fail, get up again
Destiny will choose you in the end
If you don't make the choice
And you don't use your voice
Someone else will speak for you instead
What you want is just within your reach
But you gotta practice what you preach
You pay with sweat and tears
And overcome your fears
Never let the fire inside you leave

[Chorus - Madonna:]
"I can't", "icon" - two letters apart
One step away from being lost in the dark
Just shine your light like a beautiful star
Show the world who you are, who you are

Yeah, there's another part of you no one sees
There's a burning fire that's underneath
Baby, don't you know you were meant to be
Born to be, meant to be

Iconic
Iconic
Ironic
Iconic

[Verse 3 - Madonna:]
Tell me I'm no good and I'll be great
Say I have to fight and I can't wait
Standing in the wings
A butterfly that stings
I will rise above cuz it's my fate

[Chorus - Madonna:]
"I can't", "icon" - two letters apart
One step away from being lost in the dark
Just shine your light like a beautiful star
Show the world who you are, who you are

Yeah, there's another part of you no one sees
There's a burning fire that's underneath
Baby, don't you know you were meant to be
Born to be, meant to be

Iconic
Iconic
Ironic
Iconic

[Bridge - Madonna:]
Born to be a superstar, that's exactly what you are
Born to be a superstar, that's exactly what you are

[Verse 4 - Chance The Rapper:]
Alright
Firefly change when they catch ya
Wanna put ya in their net for their light glow
Yellow brick highway
Paparazzi piled up on the high road
They just turned the sun into an idol
They just want to see how high the sky go
Just to find how it feel to fall back
Madonna said I remind her of Michael
Steady blowin' up my head
Blowin' up my head
Put it on your wall
Put me in the school book
Put me in your laws
Put me in the desk
And in the synagogues
Firefly glow when they catch ya
Wanna catch ya when ya lights go dim
Wanna turn you to a letter in their logo
Wanna stick you in a jar with a pen
You an icon

[Chorus - Madonna:]
"I can't", "icon" - two letters apart
One step away from being lost in the dark
Just shine your light like a beautiful star
Show the world who you are, who you are

Yeah, there's another part of you no one sees
There's a burning fire that's underneath
Baby, don't you know you were meant to be
Born to be, meant to be

Madonna Iconic Comments
  1. chilvari

    My fav. Madonna album, rebel heart! Also my first madonna concert!

  2. Atiq haque

    avicii's version was better

  3. Apple & Cinnamon

    I absolutely love Madonna's Voice on tracks like this. "Yeaeeh" The effortless lower side of her voice is exactly what makes her voice unique.  It contrasts well with the powerful message of the song.
    "There's another part of you no one sees
    There's a burning fire that's underneath
    Baby don't you know you were meant to be
    Born to be
    Meant to be
    *****Iconic*****
    Tell me I'm no good and I'll be great
    Say I have to fight and I can't wait
    Standing in the wings
    A butterfly that stings
    I will rise above cause it's my fateI can, Icon, two letters apart
    One step, away, of being lost in the dark
    Just shine your light like a beautiful star
    Show the world who you are
    Who you are"

  4. André Lucas Meirelles

    thanks madonna for helping me find myself back!

  5. Gaia Media

    594 people who don't like Donna Ciccione, need to take a big step back and literally fuck their own faces. From the gutter, to the top of her game, for about 400 years. And I still definitely would. And, first opportunity, I definitely will. "And my little dog too" ;) Fix your face bitches, if u don't like the Lady, poke your heads back up your arses and don't fucking listen to her. Any questions.

  6. Sherry Awan

    Underrated bop

  7. what_the_ma

    this song is ICONIC

  8. Official Starboii

    "Iconic" is one of the best song in the "Rebel Heart " album

  9. sylvester quast

    What an embarrassing shit song. Worshipping the most oberused word in today's language along with ironic

  10. Carlos Martínez

    here after ajays reaction I liked the song except when the beat drops

  11. Erick Alavez Quiroz

    Iconica y única reina por siepre

  12. Norbert Peti

  15. helthuismartin

    Hard Core Pop Music.NOT Music for little girls anymore .Thats for sure.Compare this with Like a Virgin, Talking about making progress.

  16. luciano davila

    I love this song so much, but i think that the beats at the chorus could be better.

  17. Dee Jay

    boss this one

  18. Leevi Leskisenoja

    When I went through insecurities in 8th grade this song helped me through them!

  19. Sergio Ampv

    Is it me or the best songs from last Madonna's albums have been wasted by not releasing them as singles?

  20. Alex Hu

    壹佰回 完美 努力中

  21. fumero

  26. alejandro valido

    Madonna is a ICONIC and LEGEND for everybody. You like or hate her.

  27. Peter Milonas

    Certainly Iconic. Sassy & sophisticated. Ten of out Ten ❤️

  28. Marcelo Rodrigues

    Melhor música do álbum

  29. Fernando Michael

    What a shit,boring album.I couldn't listen to all the song because after the sixth one i had had enough.And the videos make things even worse.She has always been such an arrogant,untalented trash whore.

  30. GENEVA MCKENZIE

    One of my favorite songs! Great workout song!!😊💪💪

  31. RubyRoseRivers

    I cannot wait for her new album, I’m ready to behave like a hoe and dance my heartbreak away to her music once again! ♥️

  32. Matthew Baxter

    There is some great writing on this album.Iconic could actually work just her and a guitar or piano.I mean i love it as it is but the lyrics and melody are really good!

  33. Majid X

    I don’t understand why ‘Bitch I’m Madonna ‘ is a single and this masterpiece is not !!!!

  34. 野獣先輩

    This is my anthem

  35. arthur

    1:10-1:25 minha parte preferida da música. me lembra tanto uma música acho q do início dos anos 2000

  36. Maria Silva

    BACK 2019! tank vou MADONNA ICON😗😗😗😗😗👄❤💋👄❤💋👄❤💋

  37. Joss Baas

    ¿Alguien le pudo haber explicado que si la ponía como single hubiese sido hit?

  38. Alex Hu

    2099-Well

  39. sylvester quast

    only young hipster bozos misuse the word "ironic"
    boy this song makes Madonna look foolish

  40. sylvester quast

    'ICONIC" is the most overused word ever
    Madonna has been embarrassing her herself the last couple albums hanging with rappers

  41. gagamileyselenataylor

    Why she put that CONVICTED RAPIST on that masterpiece

  42. incubus succubus

    This Song would be so much better without Chance! He sounds awful...

  43. Guiomar Borba

    Amooooo

  44. Guiomar Borba

    Hinooooo

  45. Tuffy Badass

    I'm still waiting for a version without the "featured guests." Why did she let those two night crawlers nearly ruin this otherwise terrific song? Katy Perry does the same thing. Wish they'd wise up and knock it off.

  46. Bryan Bailey

    I'm loving this beat

  47. giovanna busetto

    This should 've been her first single from Rebel Heart...still listening to it Queen! I Want another duet with Britneyyyyyyyyy

  48. Nilac B

    🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥Why wasn't as single?? ❤ it!!!!!

  49. Paul B

    this song is fired🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  50. PC B

    🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥Moneyyyyyy

  51. André Dudatt

    Iconic should have been the second single of Rebel Heart, it pretty sums up Madonna´s entire life and career and how she turned to be an icon in the music world, I even can perfectly picture the video to it.

  52. Tuffy Badass

    This would've been a terrific song without the useless "featured guests."

  53. Liam Spencer

    Goddess of Pop...
    every decade? new Queen
    & multiple princesses
    (love to them ALL.
    but the goddess is Madonna forever)

  54. 胡金龍

    娜姐的新作 還是有一定水準

  67. 野獣先輩

    I still love this song. Who listening in 2018?

  68. Beatriz Azevedo

    Listening to Madonna moves me, makes me feel less square, conservative, that is why I remain a fan.

    The new song of Taylor Swift “r you ready for this “ is alike music . And Is a huge success . This one didnt make it .
    Madonna can’t make it to the new generation any more . Or she can’t support this kind of new pop music with her weak voice .
