Lyrics

play I wanna be a billionaire so fucking bad
play Buy all of the things I never had
play Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
play Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen

play Oh every time I close my eyes
play I see my name in shining lights, yeah
play A different city every night, oh I
play I swear the world better prepare
play For when I'm a billionaire

play Yeah I would have a show like Oprah
play I would be the host of everyday Christmas
play Give Travie your wish list
play I'd probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt
play And adopt a bunch of babies
play that ain't never had shit
play give away a few Mercedes like 'Here lady have this'
play And last but not least grant somebody their last wish
play It's been a couple months
play that I've been single so
play You can call me Travie Claus minus the Ho Ho
play Ha ha get it?
play I'd probably visit where Katrina hit
play And damn sure do a lot more than fema did
play Yeah, can't forget about me, stupid
play Everywhere I go, Imma have my own theme music

play Oh every time I close my eyes
play (what you see what you see brah?)
play I see my name in shining lights
play (uhuh uhuh yeah what else?)
play A different city every night, oh I
play I swear the world better prepare (for what?)
play For when I'm a billionaire
play Oh oooh oh oooh for when I'm a billionaire
play Oh oooh oh oooh

play I'll be playing basketball with the President
play dunking on his delegates
play Then I'll compliment him on his political etiquette
play toss a couple milli in the air
play just for the heck of it
play But keep the fives, twenties,
play tens and bens completely separate
play And yeah I'll be in a whole new tax bracket
play We in recession but let me take a crack at it
play I'll probably take whatever's left
play and just split it up
play So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks
play And not a single tummy around me
play would know what hungry was
play Eating good, sleeping soundly
play I know we all have a similar dream
play Go in your pocket, pull out your wallet
play And put it in the air and sing

play I wanna be a billionaire so fucking bad
play (so bad)
play Buy all of the things I never had
play (buy everything ha ha)
play Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
play Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
play (what up Oprah)

play Oh every time I close my eyes
play (what ya see, what you see brah?)
play I see my name in shining lights
play (uh huh, uh huh, what else?)
play A different city every night, oh I
play I swear the world better prepare (for what?)
play For when I'm a billionaire (yeah, sing it)
play Oh oooh oh oooh when I'm a billionaire
play Oh oooh oh oooh

play I wanna be a billionaire so fucking bad!

meaning Meaning

McCoy told MTV News about the song's meaning: "It's me talking about what would happen if I would somehow manage to become a billionaire. What would I do with the money?" he explained. "Don't get it wrong, I'm far from a billionaire. I think I just made it out the 'thousandaire' category. So it's about what I would do with the money and, the same time, it opens up the question, if you were in a position to do something with a decent chunk of money, what would you do?"
