Uh, let's go to the beach-each
Let's go get a wave
They say what they gonna say
Have a drink, clink, found the Bud Light
Bad bitches like me is hard to come by
The Patrón-ón? Let's go get it on
The zone-one? Yes, I'm in the zone
Is it two, three? Leave a good tip
I'ma blow all of my money and don't give two shits, uh

I'm on the floor, floor
I love to dance
So give me more, more, 'til I can't stand
Get on the floor, floor
Like it's your last chance
If you want more, more
Then here I am

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Can't stop 'cause we're so high
Let's do this one more time, oh

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Let's do this one last time
Can't stop (we're higher than a motherfucker)

(We're higher than a motherfucker)
(We're higher than a motherfucker)

Jump in my hoopty, hoopty, hoop, I own that
And I ain't paying my rent this month, I owe that
But f*ck who you want and f*ck who you like
Dancehall life, there's no end in sight
Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Now everybody, let me hear you say ray, ray, ray
Go spend all your money 'cause today payday
And if you're a G, you a G, G, G
My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki (woo)

Get on the floor, floor
Like it's your last chance
If you want more, more
Then here I am

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Can't stop 'cause we're so high
Let's do this one more time

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Let's do this one last time
Can't stop (we're higher than a motherfucker)

(We're higher than a motherfucker)
(We're higher than a motherfucker)

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Can't stop 'cause we're so high
Let's do this one more time

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Let's do this one last time
Can't stop (we're higher than a motherfucker)

(We're higher than a motherfucker)
(We're higher than a motherfucker)
