Silver Spoon

  • So I went to posh school
    Why would I deny it?
    Silver spoon at the ready
    So don't even try it
    Yeah the house I grew up in it was Georgian
    Ten bedrooms, beautiful proportions
    Can't say that life isn't easy
    Double negative, can't nothing please me?
    Only make it here
    'Cause of my daddy
    Fucking your tea bags
    Yo, where's my tea caddy?

    (This life, that life)
    Life isn't fine but we all can try
    (Not fair, it's not right)
    Doing my thing I'm just
    Keeping my head down and

    Do we have to
    Keep talking about
    Where you think it is I'm from?
    I'ma make you see
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me
    I don't believe
    I'm still here
    Still telling you that you're wrong
    Are you losing sleep
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me, boy

    So I got a trust fund, so what am I doing?
    Buying property, can't be bothered with the viewings
    I'm getting hungry, could you fetch my butler?
    Step back I couldn't be any humbler
    Sucked dick, got signed to a major
    I'll do anything just to entertain you
    I'm from western lovin', and when it's over
    I'm going straight to heaven in a Range Rover

    (This life, that life)
    Life isn't fine but we all can try
    (Not fair, it's not right)
    Doing my thing I'm just
    Keeping my head down and

    Do we have to
    Keep talking about
    Where you think it is I'm from?
    I'ma make you see
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me
    I don't believe
    I'm still here
    Still telling you that you're wrong
    Are you losing sleep
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me, boy

    Round and round again (Oh, oh)
    Please could you repeat the question?
    Driving round the bend (Oh, oh)
    I've heard it all before, and then some
    Round and round again (Oh, oh)
    Please could you repeat the question?

    Doing my thing I'm just
    Keeping my head down and

    Do we have to
    Keep talking about
    Where you think it is I'm from?
    I'ma make you see
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me
    I don't believe
    I'm still here
    Still telling you that you're wrong
    Are you losing sleep
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me, boy

    And I'ma make you see
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me, boy

    But I'm losing sleep
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me, boy

    And I'ma make you see
    You don't know me
    You don't know me
    No things never change
    No talent on me, boy Writer/s: GREG KURSTIN, LILY ALLEN
