Nicki Minaj Starships Lyrics

Intro

RedOne
Uh

Verse 1

Let’s go to the beach-each, let’s go get a wave
They say, what they gonna say
Have a drink, clink, found the Bud Light
Bad bitches like me is hard to come by
The Patrón own, let’s go get it on
The zone on, yes, I’m in the zone
Is it two, three? Leave a good tip
I’ma blow off my money and don’t give two shits, oh-oh

Pre-Chorus

I’m on the floor, floor, I love to dance
So give me more, more ’til I can’t stand
Get on the floor, floor like it’s your last chance
If you want more, more, then here I am

Chorus

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop

Drop

We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka

Verse 2

Jump in my hoopty-hoopty-hoop, I own that
And I ain’t payin’ my rent this month, I owe that
But fuck who you want, and fuck who you like
Dancehall life, there’s no end in sight
Twinkle, twinkle little star
Now everybody let me hear you say, “Ray, ray, ray”
Now spend all your money, ’cause today payday
And if you a G, you a G-G-G
My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki (Woo)

Pre-Chorus

Get on the floor, floor like it’s your last chance
If you want more, more, then here I am

Chorus

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop

Drop

We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka

Chorus

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop

Drop

We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka
