Kanye West:
We the cause of all the commotion
Your mouth running, but where is you going?
What is you smoking, man?
That ain’t poem
What is you talking, man?
That ain’t important

Illuminati
High society
We in this party
And nobody invited me
We going crazy and I always use my best sense
But it don’t matter
‘Cause I stay on my fresh prince
Maxin’, relaxin
Sootin’ some pool and
Playing some b-ball outside of the school and
Girls with they top off outside of the pool and
Whips with the drop off outside of the Louvre

You just look stupid to be ignoring
The Delorean parked in front of Armani emporium
And parties at Richie is getting risky
Victoria’s Secret show, they miss me
Voices in my head
I need choices in my bed
Aaaah, get out my fucking head
It’s just me and my bad bitch
Ah
So you can say I’m on my Brad Pitt, nah

Back to the la familia I’m aligned with
Before I betray them I slit my wrists
At the top is just us niggas
‘Cause I don’t really trust niggas
And we made it through the hurricane
So celebrate and light the Mary Jane
We gon’ make it
That’s on everything
Truest girls get half naked
Every spring

They saying
“Hey Kanye
We need you to go deeper than Tay Zonday”
‘Cause my verses got pain
Chocolate rains
So many lines
You photograph and it make arm break
On the radio, man
I miss myself
I need to just step back and kiss myself
Baby
Just step up and kiss the belt
A little lower
That’s what’s up

Somebody pour her
Another cup
Is it too much to ask you keep your diamonds up?
I swear until my time is up
My style is sex in the shower
(Fresh as fuck)

Rihanna:
So shine bright
Tonight
You and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye
So alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shining bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shining bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Palms rise to the universe
As we moonshine and molly
Feel the warmth, we’ll never die
We’re like diamonds in the sky

You’re a shooting star, I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me
I’m alive
We’re like diamonds in the sky

At first sight I felt the energy of sunra-ay
I saw the life inside your (eyes)

So shine bright
Tonight
You and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye
So alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shining bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shining bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

So shine bright
Tonight
You and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye
So alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shine bright like a diamond (oh ohyeeeah)
Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shine bright like a diamond (ohwooah)
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
