HOOK
Dem be feeling us 
They were admiring us

And now them they famz just to be with us 
And now, they're feigning familiarity just to be with us

A lówó, a lẹ́nu, a dẹ̀ mọ̀'yàn o
We have money, we are influential, we know important people

A jayé orí wa, ko dẹ̀ kan'yan o, yeh
We enjoy our lives, and it doesn't concern anyone

See the money now

We weigh, we no dey count the money now
We weigh the money, we don't count it any longer

We fully loaded ready on this now

The moneneneneni running out, yeh
Jargon
