Super Rich Kids
Frank Ocean Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Too many bottles of this wine we can't pronounce
Too many bowls of that green, no Lucky Charms
The maids come around too much
Parents ain't around enough
Too many joy rides in daddy's Jaguar
Too many white lies and white lines
Super rich kids with nothing but loose ends
Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends

Start my day up on the roof
There's nothing like this type of view
Point the clicker at the tube
I prefer expensive news
New car, new girl
New ice, new glass
New watch, good times, babe
It's good times, yeah
She wash my back three times a day
This shower head feels so amazing
We'll both be high, the help don't stare
They just walk by, they must don't care
A million one, a million two
A hundred more will never do

Too many bottles of this wine we can't pronounce
Too many bowls of that green, no Lucky Charms
The maids come around too much
Parents ain't around enough
Too many joyrides in daddy's Jaguar
Too many white lies and white lines
Super rich kids with nothing but loose ends
Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends

Real love, I'm searching for a real love
Oh, real love, I'm searching for a real love
Oh, real love

Alright, close your eyes to what you can't imagine
We are the Xanny-gnashing
Caddy-smashing, bratty ass
He mad, he snatched his daddy's Jag
And used the shit for batting practice
Adamant and he thrashing
Purchasing crappy grams with half the hand of cash you handed
Panic and patch me up
Pappy done latch-keyed us
Toying with Raggy Anns and Mammy done had enough
Brash as fuck, breachin' all these aqueducts
Don't believe us, treat us like we can't erupt, yup

We end our day up on the roof
I say I'll jump, I never do
But when I'm drunk I act a fool
Talking 'bout, do they sew wings on tailored suits
I'm on that ledge, she grabs my arm
She slaps my hand
It's good times, yeah
Sleeve rips off, I slip, I fall
The market's down like sixty stories
And some don't end the way they should
My silver spoon has fed me good
A million one, a million cash
Close my eyes and feel the crash

Too many bottles of this wine we can't pronounce
Too many bowls of that green, no Lucky Charms
The maids come around too much
Parents ain't around enough
Too many joy rides in daddy's Jaguar
Too many white lies and white lines
Super rich kids with nothing but loose ends
Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends

Real love (ain't that something rare)
I'm searching for a real love (talking 'bout real love)
Uh-uh (uh-uh)
Real love (real love, yeah)
Real love (real love)
I'm searching for a real love
(Talkin' 'bout) real love, oh

Overall Meaning

"Super Rich Kids" by Frank Ocean is a song that explores the lifestyle and moral decay of young adults who are born into affluent families. The opening lines refer to their excessive consumption of substances like wine and marijuana while highlighting the fact that they are so rich that they can’t even pronounce the names of the wines they drink. They indulge in various luxuries that their parents' wealth affords them, but they are devoid of genuine emotional connection and suffer from a lack of parental guidance. They have everything at their disposal except for real love, as they are surrounded by fake friends and material objects.


The song talks about the hedonistic lifestyle of the rich kids who party and consume drugs like cocaine. The lyrics describe their lack of meaningful connections with people and the fact that their parents are absent from their lives. The refrain "Too many joyrides in daddy's Jaguar/Too many white lies and white lines" encapsulates the reckless behavior that often accompanies wealth and privilege. The second verse talks about the singer’s search for real love and the struggles that come with it.


The song's themes are further emphasized by the characters' actions as they party and behave recklessly while simultaneously bemoaning their lack of genuine relationships. Frank Ocean highlights the moral decay that often accompanies wealth and privilege and the struggle of navigating relationships in such a disconnected world.
