LYRICS

SWISS FRANCS (R. Leslie)

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 passport 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 (4x)
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
