So I went to posh school
Why would I deny it?
Silver spoon at the ready
So don't even try it
Yeah the house I grew up in it was Georgian
Ten bedrooms, beautiful proportions
Can't say that life isn't easy
Double negative, can't nothing please me?
Only make it here
'Cause of my daddy
Fucking your tea bags
Yo, where's my tea caddy?

(This life, that life)
Life isn't fine but we all can try
(Not fair, it's not right)
Doing my thing I'm just
Keeping my head down and

Do we have to
Keep talking about
Where you think it is I'm from?
I'ma make you see
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me
I don't believe
I'm still here
Still telling you that you're wrong
Are you losing sleep
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me, boy

So I got a trust fund, so what am I doing?
Buying property, can't be bothered with the viewings
I'm getting hungry, could you fetch my butler?
Step back I couldn't be any humbler
Sucked dick, got signed to a major
I'll do anything just to entertain you
I'm from western lovin', and when it's over
I'm going straight to heaven in a Range Rover

(This life, that life)
Life isn't fine but we all can try
(Not fair, it's not right)
Doing my thing I'm just
Keeping my head down and

Do we have to
Keep talking about
Where you think it is I'm from?
I'ma make you see
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me
I don't believe
I'm still here
Still telling you that you're wrong
Are you losing sleep
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me, boy

Round and round again (Oh, oh)
Please could you repeat the question?
Driving round the bend (Oh, oh)
I've heard it all before, and then some
Round and round again (Oh, oh)
Please could you repeat the question?

Doing my thing I'm just
Keeping my head down and

Do we have to
Keep talking about
Where you think it is I'm from?
I'ma make you see
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me
I don't believe
I'm still here
Still telling you that you're wrong
Are you losing sleep
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me, boy

And I'ma make you see
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me, boy

But I'm losing sleep
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me, boy

And I'ma make you see
You don't know me
You don't know me
No things never change
No talent on me, boy
