I’m Better Than You

Oh we left the ground
We were LA bound
On a plane that I’d just bought
And my entourage
Had a full massage
With a drink of every sort
And then you had to stare
At my collection of art
I had to bury it deep underground
Irretrievably far

Oh I’ve got a five bedroom house in Rome
That I’ve never seen
I’ve got a team of cleaners to
keep my Bugatti clean.
And boy, I’m better than you

Oh we sipped champagne
Through a diamond cane
In a club that I’d just bought
And we filled a tray
With the best cocaine
So we wouldn’t come up short
And then she had to touch
My satin velvet tie
I had to take it to the best drycleaners
At least ten times

Oh I’ve got a room at the Ritz for when I feel
I could eat
I’ve got a penthouse suite with a view
From a thousand feet
And boy, I’m better than you

Now I don’t mean to brag
But I don’t care about the cost
We better keep this all offline
So my daddy won’t cut me off

Oh we hit the beach
In a hot tub each
On an island I’d just bought
And my servants served
All their best hors d'oeuvres
With the lobster that they’d caught
And then he had to ask
For some tomato sauce
I had to pay all my guest to row
Back out from the shore

Oh I’ve got a few bodyguards to keep
Back all common thugs
I’m a member of thirty elite
And exclusive clubs
And boy, I’m better than you
And boy, I’m better than you
