Paper Planes

M.I.A. Lyrics

“Paper Planes”

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

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

Sometimes I think sitting on trains
Every stop I get to I’m clocking that game
Everyone’s a winner, we’re making our fame
Bona fide hustler making my name

Sometimes I think sitting on trains
Every stop I get to I’m clocking that game
Everyone’s a winner, we’re making our fame
Bona fide hustler making my name

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bongs
Running when we hit ’em
Lethal poison for the system

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bombs
Running when we hit ’em
Lethal poison for the system

No one on the corner has swagger like us
Hit me on my burner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going hell just pumping that gas

No one on the corner has swagger like us
Hit me on my burner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going hell just pumping that gas

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

M.I.A.
Third world democracy
Yeah, I got more records than the K.G.B.
So, uh, no funny business
Are you ready all?

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
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All I wanna do is
And a
And take your money

It samples the 1982 Clash song “Straight to Hell”.

The song climbed into to the Top 10 of the US Hot 100 in mid-2008 after being featured in the trailer for the movie Pineapple Express, and then later used in the soundtrack for 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire.
