Swing in this tree Oh I am bounce around so well Branch to branch, Limb to limb you see All in a day's dream I'm stuck Like the other monkeys here I am a humble monkey Sitting up in here again But then came the day I climbed out of these safe limbs Ventured away Walking tall, head high up and singing I went to the city Car horns, corners and the gritty Now I am the proudest monkey you've ever seen Monkey see, monkey do
Then comes the day Staring at myself I turn to question me I wonder do I want the simple, simple life that I once lived in well Oh things were quiet then In a way they were the better days But now I am the proudest monkey you've ever seen Monkey see, monkey do Monkey see, monkey do

16-tear-old Lorde wrote the lyrics to "Royals" at home in just half an hour. She was inspired by the "ridiculous, unrelatable, unattainable opulence" that runs through such albums as Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne and Lana Del Rey's Born To Die.
