Royals by Lorde - chords and lyrics

If you haven't heard of Lorde yet, you soon will. This young singer/songwriter from New Zealand has a wisdom beyond her years that will see her talent be a global success story.
Check out some more of her music and then really support her by buying her stuff.

This is the (male) version - though the chords in brackets are not :-). The second verse is below...




And if you want to see how to totally ACE a cover, then check out Laura Zocca's version below.
I recon it's the best cover of Royals

ROYALS


D
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
            (C)                                     (G)        
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
                   D                                               (C)
And I'm not proud of my address - in the torn up town
                     G
No postcode envy

D
But every song's like: gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ballgowns (tuxedos), trashin' the hotel room
C                                           G
We don't care - we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
                                D
But everybody's like Cristal, Mayback, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
C                                      G
We don't care - we  aren't caught up in your love affair


                          D
And we'll never be royals - It don't run in our blood
                 C
That kind of lux just ain't for us
                 G
We crave a different kind of buzz
                      D
Let me be your ruler - you can call me Queen Bee (kingpin)
                  C
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
G
Let me live that fantasy


D
My friends and I we've cracked the code
                  (C)                                (G)
We count our dollars on the train to the party
              D                                                           (C)
And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this
                            (G)
We didn't come from money


D
But every song's like: gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ballgowns (tuxedos), trashin' the hotel room
C                                           G
We don't care - we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
                                D
But everybody's like Cristal, Mayback, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
C                                      G
We don't care - we  aren't caught up in your love affair


                          D
And we'll never be royals - It don't run in our blood
                 C
That kind of lux just ain't for us
                 G
We crave a different kind of buzz
                      D
Let me be your ruler - you can call me Queen Bee (kingpin)
                  C
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
G                            D
Let me live that fantasy

D
oh ooh oh ohh
         C                                 
We're bigger than we ever dreamed
               G
And I'm in love with being queen (king)
D
oh ooh oh ohh
C
Life's a game without a care
              G
We aren't caught up in your love affair
                          D
And we'll never be royals - It don't run in our blood
                 C
That kind of lux just ain't for us
                 G
We crave a different kind of buzz
                      D
Let me be your ruler - you can call me Queen Bee (kingpin)
                  C
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
G                            D
Let me live that fantasy
