    Mad ethnic right now

    [Chorus: Pharrell Williams]
    Roll around the world like I do with my brethren
    All the pretty girls wanna be my heaven
    All you pearls and kings and queens
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You should be considering
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    Recontinuing to smithereens
    Roll around the world like I do with my brethren
    If people take away your walk
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You gotta keep it rollin'
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You gotta keep it rollin'
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You gotta keep it rollin'
    All the pretty girls wanna be my heaven
    Are they down?
    All the pretty girls wanna be my heaven
    Roll around, I roll around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You gotta keep it rollin'
    Roll around the world like I do with my brethren
    You gotta keep it rollin'
    All of my girls wanna be my heaven
    You gotta keep it rollin'
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You gotta keep it rollin'
    Roll around, I roll around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You gotta keep it rollin'

    [Verse 1: Pharrell Williams]

    Ready to settle whoever (tell the truth)

    All you pearls and kings and queens
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You should be considering
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    Recontinuing to smithereens
    Roll around the world like I do with my brethren
    If people take away your walk
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    You gotta keep it rollin'

    [Verse 2: Pharrell Williams]
    The bird in the mystical thunder (tell the truth)
    That big yellow ball that we're under (tell the truth)
    Workin' and waitin' on orders (tell the truth)
    So we just stay open and porous (tell the truth)
    You should hear us as a chorus (tell the truth)
    Bitch, we could blow off the doors (tell the truth)
    The energy would do it for us (tell the truth)
    And get this, we black as the Moors

    [Chorus: Pharrell Williams]
    Roll around the world like I do with my brethren
    All the pretty girls wanna be my heaven
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    Roll, roll, roll, roll, rollin' them 7's

    [Bridge: Pharrell Williams]

    Say somethin', nigga, what? Yeah, say somethin'
    Say somethin', nigga, what? Yeah, say somethin'
    Say somethin', nigga, what? Yeah, say somethin'

    [Verse 3: André 3000]
    Everybody do the weather dance
    I never was the only one
    Everybody do whatever, man
    Everybody do whatever, man
    Everybody do the weather dance
    I never was the only one
    Everybody do whatever, man
    Everybody do whatever, man

    [Bridge: Pharrell Williams]

    You gotta keep it rollin'
    Roll around, I roll around, I'm rollin' them 7's

    [Verse 4: André 3000]
    Time Pterodactyls over all the way I see
    I notice fractals, clover, honey bee, that's why
    I kinda cackle, it be funny, see, haha
    I ain't an actor, well sometimes I be, action
    I got a gash on both my arms and knees, I be
    Blockin' Alaska, they be coldin' me, achoo
    I can't imagine the hood in harmony, I mean
    How can I bask in a bloody Sun if he don't see
    Me as a man? So I'm a hunted beast of him
    I panoramic, look around, I be on edge
    And eggshells, yeah I'm an omelette, a quiche
    I catch hell, they throwin' fireballs to me
    My bitch yell, pussy, leave my baby alone
    I'm like, look girl, get your ass inside, now gon'
    I would miss her if I knocked this piggy off
    But I deserve the same as white niggas, I thought...

    [Chorus: Pharrell Williams]
    Roll around the world like I do with my brethren
    All the pretty girls wanna be my heaven
    Every time I turn around, I'm rollin' them 7's
    Roll, roll, roll, roll, rollin' them 7's
