M.I.A. – Paper Planes lyrics

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
Everyone's a winner we're making our fame
Bonafide hustler making my name

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaaa ching!)
And take ya money

Hollywood skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bones
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison for da system

Hollywood skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bones
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison for da system

No one on the corner has swagga like cuz
Hit me on my banner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like ups trucks
Already going hard just pumping that gas

No one on the corner has swagga like cuz
Hit me on my banner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like ups trucks
Already goin hard just pumpin' that gas

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaaa ching!)
And take ya money

M. I. A.
Third world democracy
Yeah, I got more records than the K. G. B.
So, uh, no funny business
You are already are!

Some some some I some I murder
Some I some I let go
Some some some I some I murder
Some I some I let go

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaa ching!)
And take ya money

All I wanna do is (Bang bang bang bang!)
And a (Kkkaaa ching!)
And take ya money

    Wow. This is rather intresting. They play this s*t on the radio here in somerset ky like, 5 times a day. I never understood the song until I read these comments. Hell, in a way she sounds like a drug dealer or something in this song. And why in the hell is she called "M.I.A." the person below me here is right, mia means missing in action. Terrible. But the beat and s*t is good. Lyrical content not so much.

    This song promotes terrorism, cos it's sung by a supporter of terrorism itself. I live in Sri Lanka and our country is torn by ltte terrorists for 25yrs. She's a great supporter of their murderous cause. They have been killing innocent civilians and damaging property. They're the only terror group that killed state leaders (make it 2 state leaders). The ones who introduced suicide bombs and car bombs. One of many source of income for them are bribes from tamil illegal immigrants in developed countries. I am not surprised that she sings violent lyrics. That's the nature of terrorism. Mayb she sings about sumthin like that. When robbing from those immigrants.

    You people who think this song is about weed and murder are stupid. Do some research or look at the world. Its about living. Its about the bad s*t that is going on in some third world countries. That's what most of her music is about. Shes trying to get the message out. Its about stuff that most teenagers in america don't have a clue about, and need to learn.
