  • 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 the torn up town
    No post code envy

    But every song's like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin' in the bathroom
    Bloodstains, 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
    It don't run in our blood
    That kind of lux just ain't for us
    We crave a different kind of buzz
    Let me be your 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

    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 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
    Bloodstains, 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
    It don't run in our blood
    That kind of lux just ain't for us
    We crave a different kind of buzz
    Let me be your 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
    It don't run in our blood
    That kind of lux just ain't for us
    We crave a different kind of buzz
    Let me be your 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
