Lyrics

play I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
play I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
play And I'm not proud of my address,
play In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

play But every song's like gold teeth,
play grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
play Blood stains, ball gowns,
play trashin' the hotel room,
play We don't care,
play we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
play But everybody's like Cristal,
play Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
play Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
play We don't care,
play we aren't caught up in your love affair.

play And we'll never be royals (royals).
play It don't run in our blood,
play That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
play We crave a different kind of buzz.
play Let me be your ruler (ruler),
play You can call me queen Bee
play And baby I'll rule, I'll rule,
play I'll rule, I'll rule.
play Let me live that fantasy.

play My friends and I—we've cracked the code.
play We count our dollars on the train to the party.
play And everyone who knows us
play knows that we're fine with this,
    We didn't come from money.

    But every song's like gold teeth,
    grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom.
    Blood stains, ball gowns,
    trashin' the hotel room,
    We don't care,
    we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
    But everybody's like Cristal,
    Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
    Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
    We don't care,
    we aren't caught up in your love affair

    And we'll never be royals (royals).
    It don't run in our blood
    That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
    We crave a different kind of buzz.
    Let me be your ruler (ruler),
    You can call me queen Bee
    And baby I'll rule,
    I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
    Let me live that fantasy.

    Ooh ooh oh
    We're bigger than we ever dreamed,
    And I'm in love with being queen.
    Ooh ooh oh
    Life is great without a care
    We aren't caught up in your love affair.

    And we'll never be royals (royals).
    It don't run in our blood
    That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
    We crave a different kind of buzz
    Let me be your ruler (ruler),
    You can call me queen Bee
    And baby I'll rule, I'll rule,
    I'll rule, I'll rule.
    Let me live that fantasy.
