Livin' in up in the city
Got chucks on with Saint Laurent
Gotta kiss myself I'm so pretty

I'm too hot (hot damn)
Call the po-lice and the fireman
I'm too hot (hot damn)
Make a dragon wanna retire, man

Say my name you know who I am

And my band 'bout that money

Fill my cup put some liquor in it
Take a sip, sign a check

Ride to Harlem, Hollywood, Jackson, Mississippi
If we show up, we gon' show out
Smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy

I'm too hot (hot damn)
Call the po-lice and the fireman

Make a dragon wanna retire, man

And my band 'bout that money
Break it down...
