  • I wake up, check my phone
    Jump in my whip, and off I go
    I pay off the police to stay out of my way
    I got it all sewn up
    And I'm kingpin for a day

    I got the blues, I got the reds
    Yellow tops, and spider legs
    You'd swear it's from heaven
    But it all grows naturally
    I got it all right here
    And I'm kingpin for a day

    When you're the kingpin
    All the eyes are on your crown
    When you're the kingpin
    People want to take you down
    When you're the kingpin
    Nobody can show, nobody can show
    Nobody can show you how

    Don't want no trouble
    But trouble comes
    I know a guy, who gets it done
    He'll serve it right up to you on a rusty tray
    I don't care about tomorrow
    I'm kingpin for today

    When you're the kingpin
    All the eyes are on your crown
    When you're the kingpin
    People want to take you down
    When you're the kingpin
    Nobody can show, nobody can show
    Nobody can show you how

    When you're the kingpin
    All the eyes are on your crown
    When you're the kingpin
    People want to take you down
    When you're the kingpin
    Nobody can show, nobody can show
    Nobody can show you how Writer/s: BRENDAN BENSON, JAKE BUGG, LAIN ARCHER
