"Millionaire" as written by Kelis Rogers, Douglas Davis, Ricky Walters and Andre Benjamin....
I said, her from the city, so her got to be witty
She said, him from the country, so him got to be funky

Mama, I'm a millionaire, but I feel like a bum
Mama, I'm a millionaire, but I feel like the only one
I I I I woke up early this mornin'. I don't think why'all heard me
I woke up early this mornin'. I don't think why'all heard me
I woke up early this mornin', I don't think why'all heard me
I said I woke up early this mornin' but I still ain't see the sun
Uh uh uh oh uh oh (repeat three times)

Papa, I'm a millionaire
But Saks Fifth Ave. don't sell affection
(Saks Fifth Ave. don't sell affection)
Papa, I'm a millionaire
But I ain't moving in the right direction
Somethin' ain't right. I know

I am rich. He is rich. She is rich. We is rich
Oh, I am rich. He is rich and she is rich. We is rich (repeat twice)

Where there is cheese, there are rats
Wherever there are rats, there are cats
Wherever there are cats there are dogs
If you got the dogs, you got bitches
Bitches always out to put their paws on your riches
If you got riches, you got glitches
If you got glitches in your life computer
Turn it off and then reboot her
Now you back on
Can't just put the cap on the old bottle once you pop it
That'll spoil it. Go on. Drink it and enjoy it
Mama, I'm a millionaire

What's a girl to do when she just has diamonds. No time. Just pay
What's a girl to do? Instead of me; it's you. Be true
What's a girl to do in a world of greed when you're in pain?
What's a girl to do when she's lost her long time friends
That's life

    General Comment"Can't just put the cap on the old bottle once you pop it that will spoil it, gone and drink it and enjoy it."

    That line had deep meaning for me the first time I heard it when I was in my mates car stoned one night being subjected to all his r&b/rap/gangsta rap. Sad.

    I dig this song. It's just saying being rich isn't always what it's cracked up to be.

    General Commentone of my favorite songs. basically talking about someone who's got all the money in the world but it isn't enough, money isn't everything. the "I woke up early this morning but I still ain't seen the sun" is saying that they wants things to change, but it ain't happening. being rich isn't all it's cracked up to be, because there's always gonna be someone who's got less, someone who wants to take what you've got, someone who wants to spoil it. but it's yours so you better enjoy it anyway (can't just put the cap on the old bottle once you pop it that'll spoil it)

    General CommentI think this song is about someone having all the money in the world but still feel like something is missing. Like they don't feel like a millionaire on the personal side of things.

    General CommentYeah, I think the lyrics just say that you can have a lot of money but no friends and that it really doesn't matter wether you have the money cause she gave up something huge that's equally as important
    The song certainly has a lot of sweetness :-)
