"Run This Town (Jay-Z cover)" as written by Jeff Bhasker, Shawn Carter, Kanye West, Rihanna Fenty, Dion Wilson, Athanasios Alatas, Niko Grapsas, Marinos Giamalakis, Christos Vlachakis and Nikos Dounavis....
Feel it comin' in the air
Hear the screams from everywhere
I'm addicted to the thrill
It's a dangerous love affair
Can't be scared when it goes down
Got a problem, tell me now
The only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this town tonight
We gonna run this town

We are
Yeah I said it
We are
This is Roc Nation
Pledge your allegiance
Get y'all black tees on
All black everything
Black cards, black cars
All black everything
And our girls are blackbirds
Ridin' with they dillingers
I'd get more in depth
If you boys really real enough
This is la familia
I'll explain later
But for now let me get back to this paper
I'm a couple bands down and I'm tryin' to get back
I gave Doug a grip, I lost a flip for five stacks
Yeah I'm talkin' five comma
Six zeros
Dot zero
Here it go
Back to runnin' circles 'round bitches
Now we squared up
Hold up

Life's a game but it's not fair
I break the rules so I don't care
So I keep doin' my own thing
Walkin' tall against the rain
Victory's within the mile
Almost there, don't give up now
The only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this town tonight
Oh
Hey-e-e-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-y
(Who's gonna run this town tonight)

We are
Yeah I said it
We are
You can call me Cesar
In a dark Czar
Please follow the leader
So Eric B. we are
Microphone fiend
It's the return of the god
Peace god...
(Auh! Auh!)
And ain't nobody fresher
I'm in Mason
(Ah!)
Martin Margiela
On the tape we're screamin'
Fuck the other side, they jealous
We got a banquette full the broads
They got a table full of fellas
And they ain't spending no cake
They should throw they hand in
'Cause they ain't got no spades
My whole team got dough
So my banquette is lookin' like Millionaire's Row

Life's a game but it's not fair
I break the rules so I don't care
So I keep doin' my own thing
Walkin' tall against the rain
Victory's within the mile
Almost there, don't give up now
The only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this town tonight
Hey-e-e-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-y
(Who's gonna run this town tonight)

It's crazy how you can go from being Joe Blow
To everybody trying to get a no homo
? cause I slept all day
This the life that everybody ask for
Welcome to the fast life
? a crash course

We give a damn about the drama that you do bring
?
Who's gonna run this town tonight
(Who's gonna run this town tonight)
?
Hey-e-e-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-e-e-y (We gonna run this town tonight)
Hey-e-e-e-y
Hey-e-e-e-e-e-y (We gonna run this town tonight)
Hey-e-e-e-y (We gonna run this town tonight)

    General Commentone correction "Back to runnin' circles 'round white folks
    Now we fired up"
    should be "back to running circles round bitches
    Now were screwed up"
    apologize for the mistake
