Final version[]

They all know my name now
It's just another lonely day on the playground

(Okay, let's go, one, two, three, four)

No, I'm not vintage, no, I don't care
No, I'm not Kylie, no, you can't compare me
To another one, there's no one else
I'm nobody, I'm just myself

It's not Fight Club, I'm a rare snowflake
But if I hear you bringin' me down, callin' me "so fake"
I will fight you (yes), I will fight you (yes)
'Cause in the end there's only truth and God is gonna smite you
Besides that, I don't like you

I just wanna party, boy, I don't wanna fight
But everybody knows that that's the way it is
Only players can survive

They all know my name now
It's just another lonely day on the playground
(Only players can survive)
Rain, rain, go away now
Come again another day in the game now
(Only players can survive)

No, I'm not retro, no, I'm not fair
Yes, I like to re-record in heels and underwear
And it's not Scarface, 'cause I'ma live forever
If I hear from anyone you're try'na get too clever, then
I will fight you, I will win, I will rise again, soar in the wind
It's my destiny and where my life begins
So if you're in my way, I'll knock you down like Kingpin

I just wanna party, boy, I don't wanna fight
But everybody knows that that's the way it is
Only players can survive

They all know my name now
It's just another lonely day on the playground
(Only players can survive)
Rain, rain, go away now
Come again another day in the game now
(Only players can survive)

Ring around the rosie, ah, I don't wanna fall down
Keep my feet on the ground
Pocket full of nursery rhymes, I'm just biding my time
Writing my lines

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do

I'm wearin' the invisible crown, you can't see it yet
Tourin' up and tearin' the town, a soul sinner, yes
Sometimes I rap too, I'm a white girl, but
The world is my oyster, I'm a little pearl, yep

They all know my name now
It's just another lonely day on the playground
Rain, rain, go away now
Come again another day in the game now

Ring around the rosie, ah, I don't wanna fall down
Keep my feet on the ground
Pocket full of nursery rhymes, I'm just biding my time
Writing my lines

But everybody knows that's the way it is
Only players can survive

They all know my name now

Rain, rain, go away now
Come again another day in the game now

I just wanna party, boy, I don't wanna fight
But everybody knows that's the way it is
Only players can survive

They all know my name now
It's just another lonely day on the playground

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do
