Travis McCoy featuring Bruno Mars

[Bruno Mars]
I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
Buy all of the things I never had
Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen

[Chorus]
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
For when I’m a billionaire

[Travis “Travie” McCoy]
Yeah I would have a show like Oprah
I would be the host of, everyday Christmas
Give Travie a wish list
I’d probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt
And adopt a bunch of babies that ain’t never had sh-t
Give away a few Mercedes like here lady have this
And last but not least grant somebody their last wish
Its been a couple months since I’ve been single so
You can call me Travie Claus minus the Ho Ho
Get it, hehe, I’d probably visit where Katrina hit
And damn sure do a lot more than FEMA did
Yeah can’t forget about me stupid
Everywhere I go Imma have my own theme music

[Chorus]

Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
[ From : http://www.elyrics.net/read/t/travis-mccoy-lyrics/billionaire-(Feat.-bruno-mars)-lyrics.html ]
I swear the world better prepare
For when I’m a billionaire
Oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire
Oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire

[Travis “Travie” McCoy]
I’ll be playing basketball with the President
Dunking on his delegates
Then I’ll compliment him on his political etiquette
Toss a couple milli in the air just for the heck of it
But keep the fives, twentys (?) completely separate
And yeah I’ll be in a whole new tax bracket
We in recession but let me take a crack at it
I’ll probably take whatevers left and just split it up
So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks
And not a single tummy around me would know what hungry was
Eating good sleeping soundly
I know we all have a similar dream
Go in your pocket pull out your wallet
And put it in the air and sing

[Bruno Mars]
I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
Buy all of the things I never had
Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
[Chorus]
I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad

Lyrics by Only Won

I wanna be an engineer so freakin’ bad, optimize the things I’ve always had
I wanna be on the cover of PC Magazine, Smiling next to Pentium machines.

oh everytime I close my eyes, I calculate a new design
yeah….an efficient way to quantify oh ai..I swear
my patent would be here…If I was an engineer

Yeah, I wound have a show on Discovery, hoping that e-ve-ry..
body in the country would watch me on their HD.
I’d probably pull an Orville Wright and a Wilbur
Build a plane and take the rudder and dip it in silver.
Give away a few smartphones, like, Einstein here have this
Take my protractor out and do some mathmatics
It’s been a couple years since I’ve been single so
you can find me working late and living off Ho Ho’s.
Brain food for the intelligent, sometimes I like to complement
myself for being smart, but you can call me brilliant.
Yeah…Call me a geek or maybe even nerd
but face the facts, we da ones be ruling this world.

Everytime I close my eyes (what cha see, what cha see?)
I calculate a new design (uh huh uh huh)
oh ye-ah….an efficient way to quantify oh ai..I swear
my patent would be here…If I was an engineer

ohhh ohhhh….Yeah, I’m an engineer! oohh ohhhh….

I be playin Xbox with some scientists, workin’ with geologist
maybe ask a girl out and get lucky with little kiss.
Or not because I have to…formulate a program
in C++ or going back and using Fortran.
Toss a few equations in just for the heck of it.
Solve my own problem just so I can delineate
Yeah, I be comin’ on a whole new level.
Like comparing HDMI to a coax cable.
Sometimes I give directions with Euclidean vectors
And transfer files faster on eSATA connectors.
…I know we all have a simular dream
to build cantilever beams,…it makes me wanna sing

I wanna be an engineer so freakin’ bad, optimize the things I’ve always had
I wanna be on the cover of PC Magazine, Smiling next to Pentium machines.

Everytime I close my eyes, I calculate a new design
an efficient way to quantify oh ai..I swear
my patent would be here…If I was an engineer

ooh ohhh….(“Yeah! Solve it!) If I was an engineer! ohh ohh

I wanna be an engineer so freakin’ bad
