Billionaire

[Bruno Mars]
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]
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

[Travis “Travie” McCoy]
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

[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

[Travis “Travie” McCoy]
I’ll be playing basketball with the President
Dunking on his delegates
Then I’ll compliment him on his political etiquette
Toss a couple milli in the air just for the heck of it
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
I’ll probably take whatevers left and just split it up
So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks
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

[Bruno Mars]
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!

=======================

You know this song, don’t you? For you who don’t and now want to know, you know where to look. 😉

The first time I heard this song was from Sabrina’s I love Acoustic 3 album. Not that I fancy Sabrina, but because I needed new songs in my playlist. I was pretty bored with my playlist. So, when there’s something looks good, I’ll try it.

At the first time I heard Sabrina’s voice, okay…, a soft monotone voice and lullaby singer type. I had no problem though, since it was better than nothing at all. From Sabrina, I know many songs I haven’t heard before but seem so popular out there. One of them is Bruno Mars’ “Billionaire”.

What a shame, I didn’t bother to hear the original song. I just played the Sabrina’s version of “Billionaire” over and over again till I got bored to death with her monotonous and powerless voice. I still have zero idea why some people say that Sabrina’s voice is brilliant, amazing, and friends. She is just another singer with soft voice, that’s all. Nothing special in the way she sings, not to mention the same rhythm for every song she sings. It’s just a matter of taste, perhaps. Today, my campus radio just played the original song of Billionaire. I was like, “Wait… this song sounds familiar but never heard this version before… what is the title?” *eyebrows came together*

It didn’t take too long to know the answer. It’s “Billionaire” by Sabrina! Forgive my negligence. I’m really out of date in music trend. As far as I could remember, I’ve never liked this song too much, but now that I’ve heard the original version—which turns out much better than Sabrina’s version— I really love this song. I love the lyric, the way Bruno sings it, and the rhythm itself.

I believe Bruno is in his way to a billionaire now. At least, he can afford to buy all of the things he never had before. It’s like a dream come true.

These lines are the coolest 😀

“Give away a few Mercedes like here lady have this
And last but not least grant somebody their last wish”
 
 
 

Note: I copy-paste the lyric, I believe it’s not 100% accurate. Some examples:

  • It’s “all of the things” not “everything”
  • It’s “I’ve been single” not I’ve single”
  • It’s  “fucking” not “fricking,” I don’t even know what fricking means. It’s not listed in my dict. 😛
