    Lyrics

    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 a torn up town
    No postcode envy

    But every song's like:
    Gold teeth, Grey Goose, tripping in the bathroom
    Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
    We don't care
    We're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
    But everybody's like:
    Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
    Jet planes, islands, tiger's on a gold leash
    We don't care
    We're aren't caught up in your love affair

    [Chorus]
    And we'll never be royals (Royals)
    It don't run in our blood
    That kind of luxe 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

    My friends and I, we've cracked the code
    We count our dollars on the train to the party
    And every one who knows us knows
    That we're fine with this
    We didn't come from money

    But every song's like:
    Gold teeth, Grey Goose, tripping in the bathroom
    Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
    We don't care
    We're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
    But everybody's like:
    Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
    Jet planes, islands, tiger's on a gold leash
    We don't care
    We're aren't caught up in your love affair

    [Chorus]
    And we'll never be royals (Royals)
    It don't run in our blood
    That kind of luxe 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

    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    We're bigger than we ever dreamed
    And I'm in love with being queen
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Life is great without a care
    We aren't caught up in your love affair

    [Chorus]
    And we'll never be royals (Royals)
    It don't run in our blood
    That kind of luxe 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
