"Florida Kilos " as written by and Harmony Korrine Dan Auerbach....
White lines, pretty baby, tattoos
Don't know what they mean
They're special, just for you
White palms, baking powder on the stove
Cooking up a dream, turning diamonds into snow
I feel you, pretty baby, feel me
Turn it up hot, loving you is free
I like it down, like it down way low
But you already know that
You already know

Come on down to Florida
I got something for ya
We could see the kilos or the keys, baby, oh ya
Guns in the summertime
Drink a Cherry Cola lime
Prison isn't nothing to me if you'll be by my side

Yayo, yayo, yayo
And all the dope fiends
Yayo, yayo, yayo

Zoomin' my miles in gold hoops
You like your little baby like you like your drinks, cool
White lines, pretty daddy, go ski it
You snort it like a champ, like the winter we're not in

Come on down to Florida
I got something for ya
We could see the kilos or the keys, baby, oh ya
Guns in the summertime
Drink a Cherry Cola lime
Prison isn't nothing to me if you'll be by my side

Yayo, yayo, yayo
And all the dope fiends
Yayo, yayo, yayo

We could get high in Miami, dance the night away
People never die in Miami, that's what they all say
(You believe me, don't you baby?)

Come on down to Florida
I got something for ya
We could see the kilos or the keys, baby, oh ya
Guns in the summertime
Drink a Cherry Cola lime
Prison don't mean nothing to me if you'll be by my

Yayo, yayo, yayo
All the Floridians like
Yayo, yayo, yayo
All the Colombians like
Yayo, yayo, yayo
And all my girlfriends
Yayo, yayo, yayo

That's how we do it, like
Mm-mm, pretty baby
White lines, pretty baby
Gold teeth, pretty baby
Dance the night away

    Song MeaningThis song is about a couple that deals together living in Miami, FL. There are multiple hints that this is about cocaine, number one obviously being that she says "yayo" repeatedly and cocaine is in kilo bricks, hence Florida Kilos.
    The "white lines" are lines of cocaine.
    "White palms, baking powder on the stove, cooking up a dream.." They're not baking a cake, they're cooking up some crack.
    "Guns in the summertime, drink a cherry cola lime" I don't think this has anything to do with being on a diet and wanting to be fit with "guns" for the summer, it's simply setting a summer scene and it's an actual gun. They're drug dealers..
    "We could see the kilos or the keys" again with the kilos and "keys" reference what someone people use to snort the coke
    "Prison isn't nothing to me if you'll be by my side" Assuming they at some point get caught selling dope, they're obviously going to prison
    "We could get high in Miami"
    "You snort it like a champ"
    Pretty self explanatory

    General CommentYayo is slang for cocaine. And this song is obviously about someone who does/deals coke.

    General CommentThis song clearly convey's Lana's wish for there to be snow in tropical climates in the winter so that Floridians (and Colombians) can enjoy the White Christmases Lana was so fond of growing up in the Northeast.

    The lyric "white lines, pretty baby, tattoos" is obviously a metaphor for snowflakes, as each one is unique, like a tattoo. The line "turning diamonds into snow" further supports this theory. Lana mentions "Guns in the summertime" to further assert her distaste for warm, sunny weather. I can only assume that "yayo" is a phrase combining the words "YAY, snOw!"

    General CommentI think 'guns in the summertime' is referring to Guns N Roses. That's what guns is short for.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about Spring Breakers, because Harmony Korine, the director of that movie, wrote this song with Lana and another guy.
