Lana Del Rey - Fucked My Way Up to the Top

[Verse 1]
Life is awesome, I confess,
What I do, I do best.
You got nothing, I got tested,
And I passed, yes.

[Pre-Chorus]
Lay me down tonight,
In my linen and curls.
Lay me down tonight,
Riviera girls.

[Chorus]
I fucked my way up to the top,
This is my show.
I fucked my way up to the top,
Go baby, go.
(Go, go, go, go, go)
This is my show.
(Go, go, go, go, go)
This is my show.

[Verse 2]
I'm a dragon,
You're a whore,
Don't even know what you're good for.
Mimicking me is a fucking bore,
To me.
But babe.

[Pre-Chorus]
Lay me down tonight,
In my diamonds and pearls.
Tell me songs at night,
About your favourite girl.

[Chorus]
I fucked my way up to the top,
This is my show.
I fucked my way up to the top,
Go baby, go
(Go, go, go, go, go)
This is my show
(Go, go, go, go, go)

[Bridge]
Need you baby, like I breathe you baby,
Need you baby, more, more, more, more
Need you baby, like I breathe you baby,
Fuckin' need you baby, more, more, more, more.

[Pre-Chorus]
Lay me down tonight,
In my linen and curls,
Lay me down tonight,
I'm your favourite girl.

[Chorus]
I fucked my way up to the top,
This is my show.
I fucked my way up to the top,
Go baby, go
(Go, go, go, go, go)
This is my show
(Go, go, go, go, go)

[Outro]
Need you baby, like I breathe you baby,
Need you baby, more, more, more, more
Need you baby, like I breathe you baby,
Aaahh.

In an interview with Grazia magazine, Del Rey spoke rather candidly about “Fucked My Way Up to the Top”, saying: "It’s about a singer who first sneered about my allegedly not authentic style but later she stole and copied it. And now she’s acting like I am the art project and she the true super artist. My God, and people actually believe her, she’s successful! I shouldn’t continue ranting; it doesn’t get anywhere." Lana hasn’t name-dropped the artist, but speculation would suggest that the song is directed towards Lady Gaga and the record executive in “So Legit”, or indie newcomer, Lorde.
