Lyrics

Trustafarian

Written By: Michael Cooper

I'm a Trustafarian
Livin in a loft on the upper west side
I drive a Porsche Cayenne
But me parents handle the insurance man
Me and my boy Ryan
Sometimes we slum it and we order in
A little roti or a jerk chicken
From Dean and Delucca or the Four Season
Maybe next weekend
Go to a party in the West Hampton
Hopin me parents are in Boston
I charge the whole thing to Express American

Don't judge me
I understand what it means to be poor
I just donated
So don't hate it
To the Haitians I can't give anymore

Trustafarian
Livin in a loft on the upper Rosedale
I drive a Porsche Cayenne
But me parents handle the insurance man
Maybe next weekend
go to a party in the West Hampton
Hopin me parents are in Boston
I charge the whole thing to Express American

I wish I was Jamaican
I wish I was Jamaican
I wish I was Jamaican
