  • Feel the beat of the drum
    Move like ya really wanna be number 1
    You can beat out the comp
    Run like ya really wanna be at the top
    Stop adrenaline rush 'cause
    You have been identified as a hustla'
    Topic of the discussion but beat it like a percussion
    And chuck the deuce up and tell 'em it's just love (oop-oop)
    Damn diggity-dog let them bums stay mad 'cause we livin' it up (oop-opp)
    Shelltops is on and I'm popping like, I'm popping like, I'm popping some corn

    And now, I don't wanna take you if we fall down, don't get upset
    And now, is just the beginning
    And we'll figure it out somehow
    Right now, masquerade
    Master the merry go round
    Right now, masquerade
    Master the merry go round
    Right now, it's something you create
    It's never ever too late
    It's never ever too late
    Right now, okay to make a mistake
    Yeah baby this is your day
    It's time to masquerade

    Face it, face it, full of bass in ya face
    Hit the finish line first place in the race, yes
    King Kong on ya chest
    Running and I'm coming to baton to ya left, yup
    You can be who you want
    Be who you is never be what you aren't
    Never, ever fold under pressure
    Desperate times get desperate measures (oop-oop)
    Damn diggity-dog let them bums stay mad 'cause we livin' it up (oop-oop)
    Shelltops is on, and I'm popping like, I'm popping like, I'm popping some corn

    And now, I don't wanna take you if we fall down, don't get upset
    And now, is just the beginning
    And we'll figure it out somehow
    Right now, masquerade
    Master the merry go round
    Right now, masquerade
    Master the merry go round
    Right now, it's something you create
    It's never ever too late
    It's never ever too late
    Right now, okay to make a mistake
    Yeah baby this is your day
    It's time to masquerade

    I'ma call your afro cause you never ball
    Fuck all ya bitches and I'll never call
    Next day, suck my testa', I ain't playing games, bitch but checkmate
    Breaker 1-9, breaker 1-9, breaker 1-9
    All my party people lemme see you one time (time)

    Right now, masquerade
    Master the merry go round
    Right now, masquerade
    Master the merry go round
    Right now, it's something you create
    It's never ever too late
    It's never ever too late
    Right now, okay to make a mistake
    Yeah baby this is your day
    It's time to masquerade, right now Writer/s: BENJAMIN JOSEPH LEVIN, HENRY RUSSELL WALTER, LUKASZ GOTTWALD, MARTIN KARL SANDBERG, ONIKA TANYA MARAJ
