  • I'm a motherfuckin' starboy

    I'm tryna put you in the worst mood, ah
    P1 cleaner than your church shoes, ah
    Milli point two just to hurt you, ah
    All red Lamb' just to tease you, ah
    None of these toys on lease too, ah
    Made your whole year in a week too, yah
    Main bitch out your league too, ah
    Side bitch out of your league too, ah

    House so empty, need a centerpiece
    20 racks a table cut from ebony
    Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
    Then she clean it with her face but I love my baby
    You talking money, need a hearing aid
    You talking 'bout me, I don't see the shade
    Switch up my style, I take any lane
    I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy

    Every day a nigga try to test me, ah
    Every day a nigga try to end me, ah
    Pull off in that Roadster SV, ah
    Pockets overweight, gettin' hefty, ah
    Coming for the king, that's a far cry, ah
    I come alive in the fall time, I
    The competition, I don't really listen
    I'm in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition

    House so empty, need a centerpiece
    20 racks a table cut from ebony
    Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
    Then she clean it with her face but I love my baby
    You talking money, need a hearing aid
    You talking 'bout me, I don't see the shade
    Switch up my style, I take any lane
    I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy

    Let a nigga Brad Pitt
    Legend of the Fall took the year like a bandit
    Bought mama a crib and a brand new wagon
    Now she hit the grocery shop looking lavish
    Star Trek roof in that Wraith of Khan
    Girls get loose when they hear this song
    100 on the dash get me close to God
    We don't pray for love
    We just pray for cars

    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
    Look what you've done
    I'm a motherfuckin' starboy Writer/s: Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, Henry Russell Walter, Martin McKinney, Thomas Bangalter

  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesI don't care about the meaning but THE VIDEO IS SO COOL He was suffocate HAHAHAHA....
  • Ren Nielsen from Layton, UtThe Weeknd likes to use play on words. The actual lyrics are "Let a nigga Brag Pitt". He also uses another play on words with "Star Trek roof in that Wraith of Khan" instead of Wrath of Khan...which is another automobile reference to a Rolls Royce Wraith. Another vehicle reference not mentioned above is the Bentley Mulsanne.
