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 song has such a special meaning to me. I was listening to it like crazy while I was heavily depressed and taking anti-depressants. Even today, listening to it, it brings chills down my spine and tremendous emotion.

Dirge money

And why do you have to tell everyone about it?

lightning returns

@pownbnull like in the slums. If you depressed i can only say look the movie slumdogmillionaire ( this peoples who sell theyre watches are actors from the movie ) its about the slums in bombay india and how heartless peoples can be, if no one had even food, some use the naivity from childrens for horrible things to made money with them on the most violent ways and guns are some sort of power if you can not fight then a colt is gold. This one scene who one of the boys shoot this mean guy is like a paninkiller bcause he ruined several lives. just watch the movie i think i loved it bcause it remembers me how i was thinking as a child i thougt if only super mario 64 were available on a console lol and now 2022 we can play assassins creed on the go, by the way the clip is definit about the movie

Scott Smith

Same here brings back to one of the best time of my life
