27 lyrics – m.i.a.


said your all mouth and no brains
all rock stars go to heaven
you said you’ll be dead at 27
when we drunk in a english tavern
the owner poured you the bourbon
and you drunk your self so rotten
so he got so rich he bought a bentley
and moved himself to devon

you started dirty dancing
and you bar tended a dozen
i took you to the clinic
to get you clean but you couldn’t
said in 2 days your 27 and your destiny was coming
so your papa p*ssed so sudden
and left you with lil’ something

you blew that money on a mountain of drugs
and staged your self a bed in
a month later when i popped in
your still high but the winter set in
i bought you a coffee and a m*ffin
and you quoted me some lenin
i wished i was that clever
but that’s what kept me coming
your friendship did mean something
but you left me for nothing
when i left, you befriended a rope
and i saw you both were hanging.
