Von Dutch
Charli XCX Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's okay to just admit that you're jealous of me
Yeah, I heard you talk about me, that's the word on the street
You're obsessing, just confess it, put your hands up
It's obvious, I'm your number one

It's alright to just admit that I'm the fantasy
You're obsessing, just confess it 'cause it's obvious
I'm your number one
I'm your number one
I'm your number one, yeah

I'm just living that life
Von Dutch, cult classic but I still pop
I get money, you get mad because the bank's shut
Yeah, I know your little secret, put your hands up
It's so obvious, I'm your number one
Life
Von Dutch, cult classic in your eardrums
Why you lying? You won't fuck unless he's famous
Do that little dance, without it, you'd be nameless
It's so obvious, I'm your number one

I'm your number one
I'm your number one
I'm your number one
Yeah, it's so obvious
I'm your number one
I'm your number one
I'm your number one
Yeah, it's so obvious

It's okay to just admit that you're jealous of me
You're obsessing, just confess it 'cause it's obvious
I'm your number one
I'm your number one
I'm your number one
I'm your number one
I'm your number one
Your number one, your number one
Your number one

I'm just living that life
Von Dutch, cult classic but I still pop
I get money, you get mad because the bank's shut (bank's shut)
Yeah, I know your little secret, put your hands up
It's so obvious, I'm your number one
Life
Von Dutch, cult classic in your eardrums
Why you lying? You won't fuck unless he's famous (unless he's famous)
Do that little dance, without it, you'd be nameless
It's so obvious, I'm your number one

I'm your number one
Your number one, your number one
Your number one, your number one
Your number one, your number one
Your number-, your number one, yeah

I'm just living that life
Von Dutch, cult classic but I still pop
I get money, you get mad because the bank's shut
Yeah, I know your little secret, put your hands up
It's so obvious, I'm your number one

Number one, your number one




Your number one
