Lyrics of M.I.A. Paper Planes

I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border, I got visas in my name
If you come around here, I make ’em all day
I get one down in a second if you wait

I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border, I got visas in my name
If you come around here, I make ’em all day
I get one down in a second if you wait

Sometimes I feel sitting on trains
Every stop I get to, I’m clocking that game
Everyone’s a winner, we’re making the fame
Bona fide hustler making my name

Sometimes I feel sitting on trains
Every stop I get to, I’m clocking that game
Everyone’s a winner now we’re making the fame
Bona fide hustler making my name

All I wanna do is
And a, and take your money
All I wanna do is
And a, and take your money

All I wanna do is
And a, and take your money
All I wanna do is
And a, and take your money

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bombs
Running when we hit ’em
Lethal poison through their system
