TEAM CHORUS
We live in cities you'll never see on screen,
not very pretty, but we sure know how to run free.
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams,
and you know, we're on each other's team

ROYALS VERSE
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 a torn-up town, no post code envy

But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, 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.

ROYALS CHORUS
And we'll never be royals,
it don't run in our blood,
that kind of luxe 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.

TEAM POST-CHORUS
I'm kinda over being told to throw my hands up in the air,
so there.

ORIGINAL 2ND VERSE:
It seems 'getting turnt up's starting mess with ourselves,
because celebrity culture's got us obsessed with ourselves,
we'll all gonna be famous, yeah we all gonna make it,
and it's like all we gotta do is just get drunk or get naked,

I only care about the world when it's not like I like it,
only have an opinion when I know that I can tweet about it,
I don't really care about the world outside my TV,
and I totally would, it's just that I'm so god busy,

with the gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom,
blood stains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room,
we don't care, we don't care, too busy living like a,

free fall, throw back, lovin' like we little kids,
feel this, show that, happy is as happy did,
because we don't really care about celebrity glory,
because we living every day and no one's writing our story,

TEAM CHORUS
We live in cities you'll never see on screen,
not very pretty, but we sure know how to run free.
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams,
and you know, we're on each other's team.
