Rolling down the ancient high street you find In the mirror reflects a woman in her prime And you made your way out In a world dearly won Well it's yours, love You can move it around Given all the drops in the ocean Better take it one sip at a time Somebody with an antique notion Come along to tighten the line They're just afraid of you speaking your mind Your mind
They've got a name for you girls What's in a name? (What's in a name?) What's in a name? They've got a name for everything All of them clothes that you wear And all of your bits and pieces, yeah oh
Flipping through the check-stand rags it appears There ain't no time to waste, you're getting on in years You can keep your can up If you just never eat again It's a means to a terrible end Even if your plan is successful Have you really got room in your life? And it's a bland kind of torture You've played the mother and wife But what do you really dream of at night?
They got a name for you girls What's in a name? (What's in a name, what's in a name?) They got a name for you girls Some stupid name, yeah They got a name for you girls What's in a name, name? What's in a name? What's in a name? What's in a name, name? (What's in a) what's in a name, name? What's in a name, name, name, name? What's in a name? (What's in a name?) What's in a name, name?

The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
"Lean On" was originally sent by Major Lazer to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's camps as a slower reggae track. After both parties rejected the tune, Major Lazer recruited Danish singer MØ to supply vocals and recorded it themselves.
