M.I.A. - Paper Planes | Album - Kala (2007)

Well you might heard the A.R.Rahman version of this song in Danny Boyle's Oscar winnnng movie Slumdog Millionaire. The song was nominated for the Record of the Year for the 51st Grammy Awards in 2009. The song was written by M.I.A. and Diplo. The song's backing track is a sample of the 1982 song "Straight to Hell" by The Clash, and the members of The Clash are credited as co-writers of the song. The chorus of "Paper Planes" was widely speculated to be based on the chorus to the 1992 song "Rump Shaker" by Wreckx-N-Effect, although that song's writers are not credited. (Source : Wikipedia)


I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name
If you come around here, I make 'em all day
I get one down in a second if you wait

Sometimes I think sitting on trains
Every stop I get to I'm clocking that game
Everyone's a winner, we're making our fame
Bona fide hustler making my name (2)

All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG!)
And (KKKAAAA CHING!)
And take your money (4)

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bombs
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison for the system (2)

No one on the corner has swagger like us
Hit me on my Burner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going hell just pumping that gas (2)

All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG!)
And (KKKAAAA CHING!)
And take your money (4)

M.I.A.
Third world democracy
Yeah, I got more records than the K.G.B.
So, uh, no funny business

Some some some I some I murder
Some I some I let go
Some some some I some I murder
Some I some I let go

All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG!)
And (KKKAAAA CHING!)
And take your money (4)
