Royals

"Royals" was first played in 2015 during the "Let Me Entertain You" tour.

Lyrics

I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address, go on Stoke!
In the torn up town, no post code envy

But every song's like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair

And we'll never be royals
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us
I crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler, you can call me Queen B
And baby I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy
