I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border all da visas in my name
If you come around here, I make 'em all day
I get one dime in a second if you wait

I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border all da visas in my name
If you come around here, I make 'em all day
I get one dime in a second if you wait

Sometimes I been sitting on trains
Every stop I get 'till I'm clocking my game
Everyone's a winner we're making our fame
Bonafide hustler making my name

Sometimes I been sitting on trains
Every stop I get 'till I'm clocking my game

    Press thumbz up if you knew this song and M.I.A. before Pineapple Express. Anyway, I love how she uses the soundefects in her songs. M.I.A. is the next generation of music.

    what is this song really about. some of you are saying you'll know what it means if you watch pineapple express which is about weed, so is it about weed? If i were to guess i would say its about weed, hustlin, and someone said immigration and she mentions visas so maybe that too. Anyway its an awesome song!!
