  • Money is the anthem, of success, so before we go out
    What's your address?

    I'm your National Anthem, God, you're so handsome
    Take me to the Hamptons Bugatti Veyron
    He loves to romance 'em, reckless abandon, hold me for ransom, upper echelon
    He says to "be cool" but, I don't know how yet, wind in my hair
    Hand on the back of my neck
    I said, can we party later on, he said, yes

    Tell me I'm your National Anthem (Ooh yeah baby bow down, makin' me so wild now)
    Tell me I'm your National Anthem (Sugar sugar, how now, take your body downtown)
    Red, white, blue's in the skies, summer's in the air and baby, heaven's in your eyes
    I'm your National Anthem

    Money is the reason we exist
    Everybody knows it, it's a fact-kiss, kiss

    I sing the National Anthem
    While I'm standing over your body hold you like a python
    And you can't keep your hands off me, or your pants on
    See what you've done to me give me Chevron
    You said to "be cool" but, I'm already coolest
    I said to "get real, don't you know who you're dealing with?
    Um, do you think you'll buy me lots of diamonds

    Tell me I'm your National Anthem (ooh yeah baby bow down, makin' me so wild now)
    Tell me I'm your National Anthem (sugar sugar, how now, take your body downtown)
    Red, white, blue's in the skies, summer's in the air and baby, heaven's in your eyes
    I'm your National Anthem

    It's a love story for the new age
    For the six page, we're on a quick, sick rampage
    Winin' and dinin', drinkin' and drivin', excessive buyin'
    Overdose and dyin' on our drugs and our love and our dreams and our rage
    Blurrin' the lines between real and the fake
    God can only, I need somebody to hold me
    He will do very well, I can tell, I can tell
    Keep me safe in his bell, tower, hotel

    Money is the anthem of success
    So put on mascara, and your party dress

    I'm your National Anthem, boy put your hands up, give me a standing ovation
    Boy you have landed, babe in the land of, sweetness and danger, queen of Saigon

    Tell me I'm your National Anthem (ooh yeah baby bow down, makin' me so wild now)
    Tell me I'm your National Anthem (sugar sugar, how now, take your body downtown)
    Red, white, blue's in the skies, summer's in the air and baby, heaven's in your eyes
    I'm your National Anthem

    Money is the anthem, God, you're so handsome, money is the anthem
    Of success
    Money is the anthem, God, you're so handsome, money is the anthem
    Of success
    Money is the anthem, God, you're so handsome, money is the anthem
    Of success
    Money is the anthem, God, you're so handsome, money is the anthem
    Of success Writer/s: David Sneddon, Elizabeth Grant, James Bauer-Mein, Justin Parker, Lizzie Grant, Penny Elizabeth Foster
