Royals

Lyricist: Lorde, Joel Little    Composer: Lorde, Joel Little
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, tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams

But everybody's like:
Crystal, 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 lux 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

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, tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams

But everybody's like:
Crystal, 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 lux 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 ooh)
We're better than we've every dreamed
And I'm in love with being queen
(ooh ooh ooh)
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 lux 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
