Little white girl
In a shiny black car
 Hanging out with her friends 
And doing black tar

 Daddy pays for the wedding 
With a fist full of dollars 
Cost as much
As the state of Guatemala 

Oh why
Even try?

Well I got a big car
And a flat screen TV 
All my loser friends
And my boyfriend's family 

 Bring bags of food
And watch reality freak shows
Everybody's faking it
But nobody thinks so

Oh why
Even try?

[Chorus]
Got no grease on my hands 
Got no serious plans
 Whole world's waiting for me
'Cause all I gotta do is get it for free
Got no reason to bitch 
Ain't no parties I've missed 
Got to have it that way
'Cause baby I got, motivation  Motivation 

 Skinny young dude
In a hundred dollar tee shirt 
In King James kicks
And a brand new manicure 

 Hotties doing pilates 
With the snotties and the pleasers  Sneaking in the back door
At Coconut Teasers

Why
Even try?

Well, I dropped out of school 
When I was seventeen 
'Cause I didn't have time
To study my magazines 

'Cause there's a lot to learn 
From the privileged few
Like how to build a brand  Wearing high heeled shoes

Oh why
Even try?

Got no grease on my hands 
Got no serious plans
 Whole world's waiting for me
'Cause all I gotta do is get it for free

[Chorus]

I'm gonna own this town
I'm gonna own this town
I'm gonna own this town
Yeah, it's all mine

Oh why
Even try?

Got no grease on my hands 
Got no serious plans 
 Whole world's waiting for me
'Cause all I gotta do is get it for free
Got no reason to bitch 
Ain't no parties I've missed 
Got to have it that way
'Cause baby I got

Got no grease on my hands 
Got no serious plans 
 Whole world's waiting for me
'Cause all I gotta do is get it for free
Got no reason to bitch 
Ain't no parties I've missed 
Got to have it that way
'Cause baby I got, motivation  Motivation  Motivation 
Motivation.
