Said, she's born to be wild and she can't be tamed
And all she wants in life is fortune and fame
So she keeps on moving, moving right along
Even though she knows deep down inside
She knows something is wrong

Well, they no idle jubee dem couldn't cotch pon my pillow
Weh a love man for Nike and a love man for Fila
Dat's, dat's not the ways of anciento war gorilla
Me rather den to save all my sarsaparilla

Then on a lonesome breezy Sunday morning
This maiden came to town, me have to blick a sound
How she so cute and plus so sexy and so round
Sunlight catch her skin and Lord it good from head to ground

Next candidate me see who fit fi wear mi crown
And such tender smiles amaze me
The way that she looks Sunday night
She should be having my baby, my baby

The pleasure was all mine
Like yesterday news it's only for a time
Always on the go because she live a life, ah, crime
She don't want no man fi mind it
Di Muffin say dat he couldn't believe I was living so blindly

Said, she's born to be wild and she can't be tamed
And all she wants in life is fortune and fame
So she keeps on moving, moving right along
Even though she knows deep down inside
She knows something is wrong

Well, no shandy, strictly imported tequila
Vintage brandy, skunk sensemilia
Rubies and roses, diamond collar
Never check me for a money, nor a penny, nor a dollar

She can't go to London without visa
Me can't build me spliff dem without rizzla
Dem say, "Look out the door and you know di weather"
Me start put two and two together

First class flights and she drinks the most expensive wines
When she can't maintain her lifestyle upon minimum wages
She needs the coil
And just like a stubborn mule, I would tell you that is all she's worth

Well, tha smuggling and trafficking
Of illegal substances is her line of work

Me say a good woman ration
Most of di gyal dem get so caught up inna fashion
Love vanity, dem seem dem love it with a passion
Start to used dem body for some dirty profession
Seem like dem need spiritual supervision

Ital craft and a ital vision
Righteous path and a righteous decision
Instead of the materialistic religion
Else there's gonna be a crash course and collision

Said, she's born to be wild and she can't be tamed
And all she wants in life is fortune and fame
So she keeps on moving, moving right along
Even though she knows deep down inside
She knows something was wrong

Well, then it's all history
Me go up on a ends fi chack a one jubilee
Di way she rub me down and makin' me feel so nice
Me say haffi left and go ah studio go voice

Ariana, please stay home tonight
Ariana, please don't take that flight

Smuggling di drugs weh dem supply to di poor
Destruction of my people, well, then she's got to go
Tell her nah fi mix up inna those drugs before

She said she want fi go up on a smuggling tour
She missing gangsta parcel, dem say her skull fi bore
She don't have all di dollars, weh fi ever the score
But she wanna run her own drug store

Well, she said she's born to be wild and she can't be tamed
And all she wants in life is fortune and fame
So she keeps on moving, moving right along
Even though she knows deep down inside
She knows something was wrong

She's born to be wild and she can't be tamed
And all she wants in life is fortune and fame
So she keeps on moving, moving right along
Even though she knows deep down inside
She knows something was wrong
