(Lorde “Royals”)

lyrics

[Verse:]
I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address
In a torn up town
No postcode envy

[Pre hook:]
Now everybody’s like
Come on lets celebrate
Finally we getting cake
Every day we hustling
Tryin’ fill that dinner plate
We don’t care/
The underdog don’t have no fear

So if we sing about gold teeth/ Maybach’s/ diamonds on our time piece
You should raise a glass
Help us free from this poverty
So unfair
Give us free from this love affair

[Chorus:]
Cuz We’re already royal
See it runs in our blood
We’ve just been having tough luck
We need a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler
You can call me queen B
And Baby I’ll Rule
Come see my reality

[Verse 2:]
My friends and I, we’ve cracked the code
We count our dollars on the train to the party
And everyone who knows us knows
“WE ARE”
Because we say we are
[Pre Hook:]
Now everybody’s like
Come on lets celebrate
Finally we getting cake
Every day we hustling
Tryin’ fill that dinner plate
We don’t care/
The underdog don’t have no fear

So if we sing about gold teeth/ Maybach’s/ diamonds on our time piece
You should raise a glass
Help us free from this poverty
So unfair
Give us free from this love affair

[Chorus:]
Cuz We’re already Royal
See it runs in our blood
We’ve just been having tough luck
We need a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler
You can call me queen B
And Baby I’ll Rule
Come on into reality

[Rap Verse:]
The ones you see stuntin’/ are the ones who never had nothing/ so first piece of the pie we tryna’ grab something/ snatching and running/ packing in gunning / landing a hundred/
Flashing n’ frontin’/ scared of everything but call it nothing/
We don’t know that old true blue blood slave money/ slave money/ war heroes
take it to their grave money/
cotton money/ cane money/ …
Diamond blood stain money/
They tell us to save money/ we know getting paid money/
Only talking small money/2 for 5 pack of pampers, black n’ mile money/ mattress piled high money/ we know sneaker fly money/
we know racks on racks on racks on racks on racks money/ what about that tax money
oil money/ Africa’s rich soil money/
so thick you cant fold money
British East Indian company old money/
Gold money
Lime stone/
Coal money/
Its like the whole world’s up side down
And the real royalty has been reduced to clowns
Lost in the sauce and we don’t know which way to go
They blew the nose off the sphinx so we’d never know
… We royal
Oh oh oh oh oh oh,
We’re greater than they say we are
so go ahead and call me star
Oh Oh Oh Oh oh oh
wake up if you dare
Lets get free from this love affair
