(M.I.A.)
I fly like 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 them all day
I get one down in a second if you wait

I fly like 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 them all day
I get one down in a second if you wait

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

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


All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money


(Ryerye)
She's fly like paper, gets high like planes
Try to keep her from the U.S. but shes stronger than a gang
Well she's got a lot of fame, messing with the wrong name
I'm following her footsteps from the hood to the music game

My city on fire, ain't no need to put it out
Ain't about to set it up, 'cause I got fire in my mouth
And about to bring it out to the world
I want to touch the clouds, want to be a nature girl

I feel the rain and it's telling me to go far,
I feel the pain and it's telling me the music calls,
Should I stay? Should I go? I don't know, I'm kind of lost
But I'm aiming for success, I'm really sorry if you lost

Never take drugs but I'm highed up
All the music from my MC in the hood, growing up
It gets hard when you try to blow it up,
So stressful, you say fuck it, you be like "I'm giving up"


All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money


(Afrikan Boy)
I was at home, making my visa
Slipping on my government, yeah you know how it goes man
I'm fresh from Lagos, fresh from Nigeria
If I look angry it's cause someone stole my visa

If you walk into my kitchen you will see the white powder
I'll be by the cooker, whipping at you harder
Don't be alarmed I'm just cooking pounded yam
Afrikan Boy, I'll never be a drug dealer

I wrap and sell pepe in the markets of Abuja
I'm a legend, something like J.J. Ajose
My name is Olushola, I just set up my visa,
I live every day like it's the first of October

The greatest hustler on earth I know is my mother
Like mother, like son, familiar like my father
Birds of the same flow share the same feather
I just want to make my dollar and my Naira


All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money


(M.I.A.)
M.I.A.
Third world democracy
Yeah, I got more records than the K.G.B.
So, uh, no funny business

Some, some, some I, some I murder
Some, I some I let go
Some, some, some I, some I murder
Some, I some I let go

    General CommentThis is my favorite version of this song - much better than the original. It's also sometimes called the Blaqstarr remix.

    General CommentThese lyrics aren't exactly correct. In Afrikan Boy's rap, he says, "I'm a legend, something like Jay-Jay Okocha" not J.J. Ajose. Who is J.J. Ajose? Jay-Jay Okocha is an amazing soccer player from Nigeria and one of the best African players ever.
