Lyrics

I fly like a paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name
If you come around here I make 'em all day
I'll get one done in a second if you wait

I fly like a paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name
If you come around here I make 'em all day
I'll get one done in a second if you wait

Sometimes I feel sitting on trains
Every stop I get to I'm clocking the game
Everyone's a winner, we're making our fame
Bonafide hustler making my name

Sometimes I feel sitting on trains
Every stop I get to I'm clocking the game
Everyone's a winner, we're making our fame
Bonafide hustler making my name

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bombs
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison for the system

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bombs
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison for the system

No one on the corner has swagger like us
Hit me on my banner, pre-paid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going to hell, just pumping that gas

No one on the corner has swagger like us
Hit me on my banner, pre-paid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going to hell, just pumping that gas

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

M.I.A., third world democracy
Yeah, I've got more records than the K.G.B.
So no funny business
But you already are

Some-some-some-some I murder
Some-some I let go
Some-some-some-some I murder
Some-some I let go

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money
All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

    I love the fact they use the melody grounds from the start of Straigght to Hell, from The Clash, found that pretty original. Oh, and Divine, you think too much

    Why Is there so much confusion what this song is about? She is a rebellious woman who is very successful, just not of any conventional manor. No 9 to 5 job, smuggling weapons seem to be her way of income/contentedness. The use of Cannabis is apparent as well is the sale of it. I would like to say there are some 'terrorist' overtones to this song, but I'd rather not insinuate. More like a way of life and survival instead of the intent to overthrow a government body or harm other communities. Perhaps it's this song's meaning that The American way of life isn't suitable for everyone? I think this song's time of release is what really hit people. We (America) are in a way that some might lose confidence in our government. It's easy to listen to an alternative when this happens. Overall this song is great, really. I recommend you putting your patriotism aside and really listen to this whole album. The album itself somewhat follows this trend, especially "hussel", however, other songs include other meanings like love and the struggle for 3rd world countries.

    The song isn't bad, it's pretty catchy, but when I actually heard the lyrics, I was a little "eh... It's okay..." afterwards. Not too bad, though.
