swiss francs lyrics – ryan leslie

“swiss francs”

[verse 1:]
when i was young, i had a dream of being president
went to harvard – the best money i ever spent
graduated young – now they’re saying i’m a mogul
people ask me what my address is i tell them: global

new headquarters: down wall street
went from being broke in harlem, now we all eat
twin benz trucks – call that double parked
plus every record i make is a f*ckin’ work of art

i’m gettin’ more money since i went independent
and they never seen me coming – had my windows tinted
the crown prince: pride of my community
and when i fly i want diplomatic immunity

my p*ssport is stamped out – i need some pages
when i die they gon’ act out my life on movie stages
got a hired gun – motto is “protect the chief”
keep these haters from scheming on this patek philippe

[hook:]
bills foreign, swiss francs
before i die i need my money in a swiss bank
i can see right through these haters: fish tanks
plus they frowning at my watch like my wrist stinks

bills foreign, swiss francs
before i die, stack my money in a swiss bank
i can see right through these haters: fish tanks
plus they frowning at my watch

[verse 2:]
the campaign is global – the dollar ain’t what it used to be
switch a franc for a dollar, you get like 1.3
it’s too many haters, it’s only one of me
and they mad cause i’m everything they wanna be
30,000 feet – i’m outta reach
lifestyle is extravagant, word to robin leach
on the road, homie, i ain’t seen my bed in weeks
what i need a bed for? money never sleeps!
so i don’t either, i need it cash
security got a pistol it’s underneath the dash
and he ain’t scared to use it. i don’t need to worry
you ain’t got my deposit, homie, you need to hurry!
call shiv, he got my schedule it’s full of dates
my life is like a recurring birthday, it’s full of cake
one spot at the top that mean it’s you or me
supermodel ex’s? yeah, i got ’bout 2 or 3

[hook]

[vamp:]
i can’t hear a word you’re sayin’ now [x4]
cuz if you ain’t talkin’ bout that money
i can’t hear a word you’re sayin’ now
said if you ain’t talkin’ bout that money
i can’t hear a word you’re sayin’ now

[hook]
