Lyrics

[Starz]:
Uh, what?
Starz, Starz
Lana Del Rey, Lana Del Rey
Sing it to me, sing it to me

[Lana Del Rey]:
You're so easy to love
You make me coo-coo like a turtle dove
So hot that I can't get enough
Enough of you

Hit me and it felt like a kiss
You know it hurt so good when you do me like this
So sad when I hear the girls talk
When I walk by, they start to cry

(Sing it to me, babe)

'Cause you're a beautiful player
You're a beautiful player, baby
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, baby (how you like that?)
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh (uh)
Uh-uh, ah (sing it to me, girl)

Sunset on a Saturday night
Having a chopped-up bike ride, time of our lives
He's selling songs on the boulevard
Of broken dreams, in faded Queens

Live young like we wanna die fast
'Cause he's been breakin' the law and he's not goin' back (goin' back)
I love him violently all through the night
And yes, it's true, I live for you

(Sing it to me, babe)

'Cause you're a beautiful player (sing it to me)
You're a beautiful player, baby
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, baby (how you like that?)
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, (uh)
Ooh-ooh, yeah

'L' is for your love that you gave and took away
'O' is for the only one I wanted to stay
'V' is for my valiant Valium, baby
'E' is for the X that we took with champagne

[Starz]:
I don't wanna leave, I just wanna breathe
I drive 'em crazy, baby girl, just bein' me
I'm not selfish, I can't help it
I'm just playin' the cards I was dealted

The name Starz got a lotta love to give
Ridin' down Broke Dream Boulevard in a Benz
How d'ya love that? I think too much
A thin line between insanity and true love

[Lana Del Rey]:
Hit me and it felt like a kiss
Baby, if it don't hurt, then I'll have to insist
We have just one life to live
But true love's more than he can give

(Sing it to me, babe)

'Cause he's my beautiful player
He's my beautiful player, baby
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, baby (how you like that?)
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh (uh)
Uh-uh, ah

(Sing it to me, babe)

'Cause he's my beautiful player (sing it to me)
He's my beautiful player, baby
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, baby (how you like that?)
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh (uh)
Ooh-ooh, yeah
