Royals

Lyrics

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

playBut every song's like gold teeth,
playgrey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
playBlood stains, ball gowns,
playtrashin' the hotel room,
playWe don't care,
playwe're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
playBut everybody's like Cristal,
playMaybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
playJet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
playWe don't care,
playwe aren't caught up in your love affair.

playAnd we'll never be royals (royals).
playIt don't run in our blood,
playThat kind of luxe just ain't for us.
playWe crave a different kind of buzz.
playLet me be your ruler (ruler),
playYou can call me queen Bee
playAnd baby I'll rule, I'll rule,
playI'll rule, I'll rule.
playLet me live that fantasy.

playMy friends and I—we've cracked the code.
playWe count our dollars on the train to the party.
playAnd everyone who knows us
playknows 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.
