Trust Fund Baby — Why Don’t We

Trust Fund Baby — Why Don't We

I don’t want a girl who
Gets a car for her sweet sixteen
Or spends a stack of dollar bills
On a limousine
I want a girl who takes the bus
And who wears baggy jeans
Rockin’ Nike Airs
What the hell are Louboutins?
Don’t want no fake tan, short skirt
Daddy’s money don’t work
Shop until you drop on the town
I want a smart girl
Stronger than her father
Someone who will laugh and
Try and fit in the crowd

And all we used to dream about
Is getting rich and getting out
Move to the nicer part of town
Where we’d have numbers on our house
It took a while to figure out
What type of girl that I’m about
Who brings the real man out of me

I don’t really want a trust fund baby
I like my women independent
And I say to people, “That’s my lady”
And we don’t need nothing else
I don’t want a trust fund baby
Save your money, don’t spend it
And I say to people, “That’s my lady”
And we don’t need nothing else

I don’t want a girl who take selfies
Want her makeup-free
Don’t want no mean girl lady
A pink prom queen
I want a girl who climbs trees
Always dirt on her jeans
Her daddy told her how to fix cars
Maybe she could fix me
I need a throwback kid
Who loves Missy Elliot
Who for my birthday
Makes a mix tape and puts it on cassette
Want a girl with common sense
Who’s dripping in competence
Don’t wanna die to get rich
But she loves Fifty Cent

And all we used to dream about
Is getting rich and getting out
Move to the nicer part of town
Where we’d have numbers on our house
It took a while to figure out
What type of girl that I’m about
Who brings the real man out of me

I don’t really want a trust fund baby
I like my women independent
And I say to people, “That’s my lady”
And we don’t need nothing else
I don’t want a trust fund baby
Save your money, don’t spend it
And I say to people, “That’s my lady”
And we don’t need nothing else
