    Lyrics

    I fly like a 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'll get one done in a second if you wait

    I fly like a 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'll get one done in a second if you wait

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

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

    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money

    Pirate skulls and bones
    Sticks and stones and weed and bombs
    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 banner, pre-paid wireless
    We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
    Already going to hell, just pumping that gas

    No one on the corner has swagger like us
    Hit me on my banner, pre-paid wireless
    We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
    Already going to hell, just pumping that gas

    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money

    M.I.A., third world democracy
    Yeah, I've got more records than the K.G.B.
    So no funny business
    But you already are

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

    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money
    All I wanna do is
    And then
    And take your money

      I love the fact they use the melody grounds from the start of Straigght to Hell, from The Clash, found that pretty original. Oh, and Divine, you think too much

      Why Is there so much confusion what this song is about? She is a rebellious woman who is very successful, just not of any conventional manor. No 9 to 5 job, smuggling weapons seem to be her way of income/contentedness. The use of Cannabis is apparent as well is the sale of it. I would like to say there are some 'terrorist' overtones to this song, but I'd rather not insinuate. More like a way of life and survival instead of the intent to overthrow a government body or harm other communities. Perhaps it's this song's meaning that The American way of life isn't suitable for everyone? I think this song's time of release is what really hit people. We (America) are in a way that some might lose confidence in our government. It's easy to listen to an alternative when this happens. Overall this song is great, really. I recommend you putting your patriotism aside and really listen to this whole album. The album itself somewhat follows this trend, especially "hussel", however, other songs include other meanings like love and the struggle for 3rd world countries.
