Music Monday: “Royals” by Lorde

Music Monday is back! After a brief hiatus, we’re back bringing you one song a week that you may not have heard of, may not have heard in ages, or one that we just can’t seem to get out of our heads. Enjoy!

One song I just haven’t been able to get out of my head this summer is the new track from Lorde, “Royals”. Check out the music video and lyrics below. I dare you to not have it stuck in your head the rest of the day.

 

Buy the track on iTunes. 

“Royals” by Lorde Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
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,
In the torn-up town, no post code envy

[Hook]
But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom
Blood stains, 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 time piece.
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 (royals).
It don’t run in our blood,
That kind of lux just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

[Verse 2]
My friends and I – we’ve cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we’re fine with this,
We didn’t come from money.

[Hook]
But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom.
Blood stains, 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 time piece.
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 (royals).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Oooh ooooh ohhh
We’re bigger than we ever dreamed,
And I’m in love with being queen.
Oooooh ooooh ohhhhh
Life is game without a care
We aren’t caught up in your love affair.

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.
