One day I’ll surprise ‘em all when I catch the good luck blues
Just wait ‘til you see me y’all wearing diamonds on my shoes
Long time since I seen a buck or had a bill to spare
Can’t wait ‘til I’m so deluxe I can’t afford to care

Down low like a submarine so I rewrote the script
Big deal on the movie screen a hot shot on the strip
Stay tuned ‘til it all goes down and comes back round for me
Don’t trip on the green green ground below my money tree

I’m a zillionaire watch the little people climb
Up a zillion stairs just to hit the bottom line
Yeah we’ve all been there about a hundred thousand times
But it’s my turn now gonna’ say it loud I’m a zillionaire

Yes sir there’s a certain smell to dollars on the vine
Well well, it was hard as hell without a single dime
Tough break when the cash ain’t there to plug up all the holes
My my it’s a love affair that I got with the gold

Empty is a dirty word and so are down and out
Fuck me I’m a mockingbird a mile above the crowd
Get caught in the undertow the currents are a bitch
Hell no lemme’ overflow with every kinda’ rich

I’m a zillionaire watch the little people climb
Up a zillion stairs just to hit the bottom line
Yeah we’ve all been there about a hundred thousand times
But it’s my turn now gonna’ say it loud I’m a zillionaire

So I’m buying up all the beaches and I’m renting out the sky
Gimme’ everything I ask for don’t you make me say it twice
They say character is the way you were when no one else was there
But can’t you make an exception babe I’m a goddamn zillionaire
