[Verse]
                  D
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
         D
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
            D
And I'm not proud of my address,
               D
in the torn up town, no post code envy


[Pre-Chorus]
                      D
But every song's like gold teeth,

grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
D
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
C                            G
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
                     D
But everybody's like Cristal,

Maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
                     D
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
C                        G~
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair.


[Chorus]
                   D
And we'll never be royals
                    D
It don't run in our blood,
             C
That kind of lux just ain't for us.
           G
We crave a different kind of buzz.
               D
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen bee
              C                                      G
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
                          D
Let me live that fantasy.


[Verse]
               D
My friends and I we've cracked the code.
             D
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
         D
And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this,
                    D
We didn't come from money.


[Pre-Chorus]
                      D
But every song's like gold teeth,

grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
D
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
C                            G
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
                     D
But everybody's like Cristal,

Maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
D
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
C                        G
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair.


[Chorus]
                   D
And we'll never be royals
                    D
It don't run in our blood,
             C
That kind of lux just ain't for us.
           G
We crave a different kind of buzz.
               D
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen bee
              C                                      G
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
                          D
Let me live that fantasy.



[Bridge]
D               C
Oooh ooooh ohhh
                                  G
We're bigger than we ever dreamed,

and I'm in love with being queen.
D                  C
Oooooh ooooh ohhhhh

life is game without a care
          G
We aren't caught up in your love affair.


[Chorus]
                   D
And we'll never be royals
                    D
It don't run in our blood,
             C
That kind of lux just ain't for us.
           G
We crave a different kind of buzz.
               D
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen bee
              C                                      G
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.

Let me live that fantasy.
