Travie McCoy – Billionaire

I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
buy all of the things I never had
uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
smiling next to Oprah and the Queen

Now obviously, we gotta rapist in Lincoln Park What we’ve got here is someone saying they want to be rich and be next to Oprah and The Queen on the Forbes rich list.

[Chorus]
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
for when I’m a billionaire

Wait, why would your name be in shining lights? you’re just rich. Money and fame are two different things. Bill Gates doesn’t demand his name on a billboard. Why should you?

Yeah I would have a show like Oprah
I would be the host of, everyday Christmas
give Travie a wish list
I’d probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt
and adopt a bunch of babies that ain’t never had sh-t
give away a few Mercedes like here lady have this
and last but not least grant somebody their last wish
its been a couple months since I’ve single so
you can call me Travie Claus minus the Ho Ho
get it, hehe, I’d probably visit where Katrina hit
and damn sure do a lot more than FEMA did
yeah can’t forget about me stupid
everywhere I go Imma have my own theme music

Well, at least we know how he’s going to get rich. Hosting a TV show…because everyone that hosts a TV show is super rich…except Oprah and Johnathon Ross, obviously…Anyway, here he brags on about what he’d do if he was rich and decides to rip off what everyone else has done. Good job…

[Chorus]

Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
for when I’m a billionaire
oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire
oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire

I’ll be playing basketball with the President
dunking on his delegates

Again, being rich does not automatically allow you to play basketball with the president…


then I’ll compliment him on his political etiquette
toss a couple milli in the air just for the heck of it

Oh yeah, because your money will just grow on trees after that…


but keep the fives, twentys  completely separate
and yeah I’ll be in a whole new tax bracket
we in recession but let me take a crack at it

HOLD ON. HE HONESLTY WRITES THAT HE CAN CURE A RECESSION. HIMSELF? REALLY?  NO-ONE IS THAT RICH!


I’ll probably take whatever’s left and just split it up
so everybody that I love can have a couple bucks

How does this guy have any money left.


and not a single tummy around me would know what hungry was
eating good sleeping soundly
I know we all have a similar dream
go in your pocket pull out your wallet
and put it in the air and sing

Kill me.


I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
buy all of the things I never had
uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
[Chorus]
I wanna be a billionaire so frickin bad!

Ok, no matter how much money you make, you would seriously not be able to accomplish all this, it’s insane. Ok, so it’s hypothetical and so can be as non-sensical as it likes, but this is just bad and stupid and sounds like 12 year olds Christmas list.
