Street Sweeper Social Club - Paper Planes Lyrics




I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got warrants in my name
If you come around here, we workin' all day
Your life gon' pass you in a second if you wait

I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got warrants in my name
If you come around here, we workin' all day
Your life gon' pass you in a second if you wait

Just like Jesse James when I'm sittin' on trains
Every step we get see we're clockin' that game
Dog food for dinner, the world is in flames
Bona fide hustlers making that change

Just like Jesse James when I'm sittin' on trains
Every step we get see we're clockin' that game
Dog food for dinner, the world is in flames
Bona fide hustlers making that change

All they wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All they wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All they wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All they wanna do is
And a
And take your money

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and bullets and bombs
Running when we hit 'em
A little poison for the system

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and bullets and bombs
Running when we hit 'em
A little poison for the system

All they wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All they wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All they wanna do is
And a
And take your money

All they wanna do is
And a
And take your money

  20. Anonymous Marxist

    they missed the chance of calling themselves street swiper social pub. now that would have been funny. shame.

  21. Yunes Fadel

    SSSC makes a cover of M.I.A. 'Paper Planes' that's already a cover of The Clash 'Combat Rock'.
    Crazy world...

    felix knott

    +Yunes Fadel paper planes isn't a cover it samples the song "straight to hell" from the album Combat Rock.

  22. 44Edbuoy

    Solo sounds like Audioslave's "Wide Awake", not bad song. 

    Nickthefiretype

    +44Edbuoy Same guitarist

  23. gille jack

    " All i want it s you do it... and take your money!"   fuck consumerism of this modern society

    This is unmitigated bum 

  25. Steve Brown

    Wow the Coup emcee doing rock covers for Paper Planes. Life is full of surprises!

  26. dose999

    Shout out to MIA! WEST SIDE! That's Tom Morello, one of the best guitarists ever, and Boots Riley preachin the word. Listen to "100 Little Curses" AND "Clap for the Killers" too. love

  27. Ryan B

    Love them, but this isn't their best

  28. Markus Aurelius

    Visit the Czech Republic

  29. Markus Aurelius

    viva Tom Morello...

    Nico 88

    espese a escuchar esto por el mismo... ajaja

  30. Blackmilk81

    This is dreadful. MIAs song has way more punch to it.
    Toms in a covers band now? Disappointing.

    Sean Linkoln

    Although I agree that this could be a lot better, just because a band covers a song doesn't mean they're a cover/tribute band.

    Patrick Clyde

    One song versus an entire album of covers?

    lame

    A cover is a cover, they sing all the same lyrics as the original. Must be that this is a remake of the song and not a cover... Bet your mom was disappointed when you popped out but she didnt TALK ALL THATSHIT!!

    insertrandomcleverusername

    Its not a cover band

  31. Jacob Sporlein

    I seen them play this shit at NiN:JA, Tom started playing with his teeth, had me like :O

  32. Carlos Santa

    Tom Morello is so badass that he can play "twinkle little star" and make it badass.

  33. Andrew J. Smith

    They need to come off of hiatus.

  34. Alex Ferren

    He shaves his head, I think I discovered the secret.

  35. snugglebear97653

    the hell is this?

  36. enmac500

    They are

  37. ThisJuanTime

    I'm baffled. Sounds exactly the same. How can you not like it?

  38. Emile

    Challenge accepted!

  39. Adam Maliski

    Looks like they're wearing dress blue coats

  40. Luis Terrazas

    this version of this song is fucking awful.

  41. Adam Klassen

    Go bald

  42. bigpimpdaddy69

    Troll detected.

  43. JohnMellor5202

    He's probably refferencing the fact that the tune was originally lifted from the song Straight To Hell by The Clash

  44. maicon douglas monteiro

    além do som legal é divertido vê a dança kkk

  45. Michael Oconnor

    This is very bad. The only really had 1 good song...Promenade

  46. Nisemekut Mk

    after every crazy new guitar solo he creates, God makes him younger...a gift for kicking slash's ass =O

  47. PISTOLWHIPTECHIES

    Aint the same without the gunshots

  48. tallicdeth

    This is beast!

  49. rougesu11y

    Thats not him.

  50. TheBillswill

    Lenny Kravitz sounds greAT!

  51. steven baster

    Boots Riley yes and Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine.

  52. ncp9one

    why isn't the original paper planes suggested?

  53. sohcahtoa1212

    Now, MIA's song was catchy (owing mainly to the choice of samples), but groundbreaking? No.

  54. Jimmeiiii

    Cause he's a god.

  55. MyFistFullOfDollars

    They managed to take everything that MIA did with the original that made it so groundbreaking and brilliant, and throw it out the window. They turned into common hip hop drudgery, even if they are playing real instruments.

  56. IllicitPopsicle

    1:58 Tom Morello is the honey badger. No fucks given.

  57. kai hes

    The music and music video is so great.

  58. Non Zilch

    he's balded actually...

  59. 11geosno

    The original riff was sampled from a Clash song called Straight to Hell, that sample was used in an M.I.A song called Paper Planes, and this is a cover of that track. AR Rahman had nothing to do with this song, aside from appearing on the Slumdog Millionare soundrack alongisde M.I.A's track.

  60. MusicJverstra

    imagine this song with Zack de la Rocha :o

  61. frostic3

    Dafaq!! This is clearly a soundtrack by AR Rahman!!!! :/

  62. Twiz

    then why are you here or even bothering to express your opinion when you know you will only bring shame to yourself and cause arguments ..

  63. Poop Bras

    The guitarist is Carl Restivo and YES, he did help with the album. The Bassist is Dave Gibbs. They're also part of the "freedom fighter orchestra" when Tom does his Nightwatchman gigs. They've all been a part of SSSC since they toured for their first album.

  64. Julien Daigle

    this is beyond terrible......

  65. Juleduto97

    @orsadam yeah .. he don't have gray hair-.... i want to know his secret..

  66. jack haw

    i really enjoyed amanda palmers cover alot

  67. TheLostGuitar

    this cover makes the original so much less annoying..

  68. Franek Sułot

    one of the worst covers all over the world

  69. DRP

    @orsadam He's 47! :O

  70. yung vegemite

    Better than the original.

  71. daniel san

  80. BobDawg173

    @patrickgduggan stfu you do it then you can say that.

  81. PinkAngel360

    I bet M.I.A loves this...and I ♥ Tom Morello♥

  82. Jeremy Febres

    i luv how boots just stands there singing and making hand motions:D

  83. xXSasukeXx89

    *tom morello forever*

  84. JohnTheZaptist

    I didnt know that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson played guitar!?! lmfao xD jk

  85. zeemonkeyman1

    why so many haters??? i reckon its epic, turn it up loud.

  86. jerry bomcool

    @gezzed812 and lil wain

  87. Ditri Charron

    the Clash are immortals :-)

  88. snugglebear97653

    buh this shit fucking sucks....this is right up there with Audioslave's cover of Killing in the name of....everything else i heard from this project is pretty cool tho....not trollin, just sayin, yo.

  89. snugglebear97653

    @oklahomandn49 yep. agreed.

  90. AZAPY

    good the coup and tom morello

  91. Poop Bras

    @SPGameBroadcast SSSC's music might be in-your-face but the vocal delivery between Boots Riley vs Zach Dela Rocha is completely different. The rhythm section sounds nothing like Brad Wilk/Timmy C, and overall the two bands only sound similar because they have the same guitarist. SSSC's lyrics are just as political, but they are far more laid back. Boots doesnt scream like Zach does. However, Boots uses a clever sense of humor to get the point accross. Love 'em both but they dont sound the same.

  92. Poop Bras

    @toxicbiscuitj28 Because Tom Morello is the only member of that band in this one. Entirely different group of people, making a somewhat familiar to RATM yet at the same time totally different vibe. RATM was in-your-face about their political issues while SSSC is more laid back and with a sense of humor.

  93. Amarino Rocha

    @orsadam yeah, he's immortal, he's a vampire.

  94. KeaStudios

    @toxicbiscuitj28 Social Street Sweeper is a totally different band. Notice an extra guitarist? Tim Crawford isn't on Bass either.

  95. Sidney Murray

    @pumx3 OOoohh!!! *raises hand* His epic custom Arm The Homeless? :3

  96. reaper1545

    @orsadam the funk keeps him young
