Lyrics

Jungkook:
'Cos ah, ah, I'm in the stars tonight
So watch me bring the fire and set the night alight

Shoes on get up in the morn'
Cup of milk let's rock and roll
King Kong kick the drum rolling on like a rolling stone
Sing song when I'm walking home
Jump up to the top LeBron
Ding dong call me on my phone
Ice tea and a game of ping pong (bang)

RM:
This is getting heavy
Can you hear the bass boom, I'm ready (ooh-ooh)
Life is sweet as honey
Yeah this beat cha-ching like money, huh

So you should keep your eyes on the ball, huh
