Paper Planes
M.I.A. Lyrics


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 think sitting on trains
Every stop I get to, I'm clocking that game
Everyone's a winner, we're making our fame
Bona fide hustler making my name

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

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bongs
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison for the system

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bongs
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison for the system

No one on the corner has swag like us
Hit me on my burner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going hard, just pumping that gas

No one on the corner has swag like us
Hit me on my burner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going hard, just pumping that gas

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

M.I.A.
Third world democracy
Yeah, I got more records than the K.G.B.
So, uh, no funny business
(Are you already high?)

Some, some, some, I, some I murder
Some, I, some I let go
Some, some, some, I, some I murder
Some, I, some I let go

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And then
And take your money

Apparently this song is trending in 2021 now, so imma take this advantage to show how badass she is.

M.I.A was a refugee from Sri Lanka after a civil war erupted between the Tamils and the government. The government commited mass genocide against them and she as a Tamil had to flee to the UK. She soon with her love for music blew up and became popular. But when Tamils bombed an airport in Sri Lanka with a flight that arrived from the UK, anti-M.I.A protests broke out. From that day onwards, she has been fighting against discrimination with music.

Remember the times when VICE was actually cool? She collaborated with them back then, fighting for women in Saudi with badass music that will end most of today's mainstream artists' career.

She is 44 years young now. Still pumping heat.

@Captn D Establishment of Sinhala supremacy by adopting a series of majoritarian measures.
In 1956, an Act passed Sinhala as the only recognised official language of the country.
The government selected the Sinhala applicants over the Tamil applicants in universities, jobs and in many fields.
Also, the government stipulated that people should foster and protect Buddhism.
The Tamils were denied equal political rights and their interests were ignored.

Bruv imagine the same thing happening in the US or somewhere people would start rioting too 🤦‍♀and these laws were enforced before there was any civil war, while obviously bombing people ain't right.

Then why does she make hypnotic Illuminati music that dumb down people instead of up lifting humanity. Sorry people need to wake up. She's only in it for the bucks.

@John Doe will not everyone lmao. wasn’t America the only country with full-blown segregation throughout the 50s on vehicles exc.

Not to sh*t on you lol I’m just saying it’s harder getting in America way more than Europe from poc.
