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 2020 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.

(i take it back, Vice is still pumping bangers)

This is before your time but don’t worry you’ll have your nostalgic songs eventually.

All the comments about how timeless and nostalgic this song is are bringing a smile to my face. The song sampled in Paper Planes (Straight to Hell by The Clash) was released in 1982 - it’s a testament to their music making ability as much as Paper Planes is an incredible song in its own right. Big love to both artists

@Who The Man Its Jan this is not the case... The only two I've seem doing better than the original was Johnny Cash and Ramones.
