    Uh, let's go to the beach-each
    Let's go get a wave
    They say what they gonna say
    Have a drink, clink, found the Bud Light
    Bad bitches like me is hard to come by
    The Patrón-ón? Let's go get it on
    The zone-one? Yes, I'm in the zone
    Is it two, three? Leave a good tip
    I'ma blow all of my money and don't give two shits, uh

    I'm on the floor, floor
    I love to dance
    So give me more, more, 'til I can't stand
    Get on the floor, floor
    Like it's your last chance
    If you want more, more
    Then here I am

    Starships were meant to fly
    Hands up and touch the sky
    Can't stop 'cause we're so high
    Let's do this one more time, oh

    Starships were meant to fly
    Hands up and touch the sky
    Let's do this one last time
    Can't stop (we're higher than a motherfucker)

    (We're higher than a motherfucker)
    (We're higher than a motherfucker)

    Jump in my hoopty, hoopty, hoop, I own that
    And I ain't paying my rent this month, I owe that
    But fuck who you want and fuck who you like
    Dancehall life, there's no end in sight
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star

    Now everybody, let me hear you say ray, ray, ray
    Go spend all your money 'cause today payday
    And if you're a G, you a G, G, G
    My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki (woo)

    Get on the floor, floor
    Like it's your last chance
    If you want more, more
    Then here I am

    Starships were meant to fly
    Hands up and touch the sky
    Can't stop 'cause we're so high
    Let's do this one more time

    Starships were meant to fly
    Hands up and touch the sky
    Let's do this one last time
    Can't stop (we're higher than a motherfucker)

    (We're higher than a motherfucker)
    (We're higher than a motherfucker)

    Starships were meant to fly
    Hands up and touch the sky
    Can't stop 'cause we're so high
    Let's do this one more time

    Starships were meant to fly
    Hands up and touch the sky
    Let's do this one last time
    Can't stop (we're higher than a motherfucker)
