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 the torn up town
No post code envy

But every song's like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin' in the bathroom 
Bloodstains, 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 

And we'll never be royals 
It don't run in our blood 
That kind of lux just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler, you can call me Queen B
And baby I'll rule (I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule)
Let me live that fantasy 

My friends and I we've cracked the code
We count our dollars on the train to the party 
And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this
We didn't come from money 

But every song's like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin' in the bathroom 
Bloodstains, 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 

And we'll never be royals 
It don't run in our blood 
That kind of lux just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler, you can call me Queen B
And baby I'll rule (I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule)
Let me live that fantasy 

(Ooh ooh oh)
We're bigger than we ever dreamed, and I'm in love with being queen
(Ooh ooh oh)
Life is great without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair 

And we'll never be royals 
It don't run in our blood 
That kind of lux just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler, you can call me Queen B
And baby I'll rule (I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule)
Let me live that fantasy
