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

Mohammad GM

✈️💯 As someone whom named Mohammad
I used to put this song on repeat while I’m in airports I was studying in UK 🇬🇧

For me it was clearly about mocking the xenophobics not about being gangster
It’s an artistic take on what we go through as travelers to western cities.

For me I can understand what she meant instantly from the title of the song “Paper Planes” that we are harmless planes unlike the metal planes ✈️ which destroyed the twin towers in 9/11

We are the threat landing towards western cities although this threat is false because we are harmless & won’t cause any distraction just like paper planes .. harmless & playful looking for fun or good times nothing serious.

and every time I land in London Heathrow or Amsterdam etc they makes me wait longer than other usually with me some Indian Sikh with turban these people maybe suffer more than Muslim men in airports I feel bad for them 😂💔 and they then ask me like I’m a suspect & why I’m here etc

also in my university once the Chilean lady who’s in charge of overseas students took me in a room after some incident in the chemistry lab she said “without any evidence or even any link”

that I might be suspicious, for me it was obvious she picked me just because my name is Mohammad tall dark & oddly quiet 😂

although I was helping her & the university with international students for free I used to take them around & guide them to local shops etc, so this song reminded me of those sad & good times of being studying in England

where occasionally treated with racism & xenophobia with some hints of islamophobia ..

that being said I’ve met many wonderful people there they’re over all nice & decent people but the problem is with official workers like airports employees or universities staff, in shops restaurants etc most people don’t care who you’re they’re ok so if you’re British or Dutch don’t get me wrong I salute you all 🌹

Gooliani Tumpie theme

Thinking of my Masters plan"

cuz aint nothing but sweat inside my hand

So I dig in my pocket all my money is spent

so I dig deeper

still comin up wit lint

so I start my mission

Leave my residence

thinkin how can I help this Ex president

"I need Money

I used to be a DA kid

so I think of all the devious things I did

I used to Roll up

This is a hold up

aint nuthin funny

stop smiling be still '

nothin move but the Money

Now I learned to Earn begging

Magga Heads for money

I feel great so maybe I just search for a Nine to to Five

if I strive maybe I.ll stay alive

so i walk into Court whistlin this

Feelin out of place cuz man

this case just got dismissed

A ballot on paper At tape of me asking people to toss out votes on a dish

but without no money its still a wish

Cause I don't like to dream about getting paid

so I dig into law books for the lies I made

so now now to test to see if I got pull

Hit the Court Cause I,m paid in FULL
