LyricsEdit

Normani:
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies

Lauren:
And I'm not proud of my address
In the torn up town, no post code envy

Dinah:
But every song's like:

Camila & Dinah:
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

Normani:
But everybody's like:

Camila,Dinah & Normani:
Crystal
Maybach
Diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes
Islands
Tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair

Ally:
And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood

Lauren:
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz

Ally:
Let me be your ruler (ruler)

Dinah & Normani:
You can call us queen bee

Fifth Harmony:
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule

Camila:
Let me live that fantasy

Lauren, Ally & Normani (Dinah ad-libs):
Ooh ooh oh ooh

Camila:
We're better than we've every dreamed
And I'm in love with being queen

Lauren, Ally & Normani (Dinah ad-libs):
Ooh ooh oh ooh

Camila:
Life is great without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair

Ally:
And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood

Lauren:
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz

Ally:
Let me be your ruler (ruler)

Dinah, Ally & Normani:
You can call us queen bee

Fifth Harmony:
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule

Camila:
Let me live that fantasy
