Billionaire feat. Bruno Mars - Travie McCoy

It is not a doubt that the Philippines is home to small businesses, commonly called the small-and-medium enterprises.  In Manila, we see retail stores (or what we call "sari-sari store" meaning a store that sells "various" things according to the needs of the community) and around 3 to 5 of them ply these streets.  Barber shops, junk shops, mini-marts, jewelry stores, including dress shops or tailoring.

I thought of these businesses as an aid to the economic progress of this third world country.  As the featured song of the day goes, I want to be a billionaire.  I think all of us, or at least majority of us would want to but as my famous mentor Bo Sanchez said, we are not prepared.

I remember his words when I went to the dress shop I hired to sew my uniform.  I left it there a week ago and we even agreed on the price.  One week thereafter, she informed me that she is only about to cut my linen. What? She hasn't touched my linen for a week considering that it is her business.  She gave me excuses... excuses that I think shouldn't be necessary when you are a business person trying to earn a living.

She lost a customer and possible advertiser of her business. 

That was an experience which confirmed that people wants to be rich but they don't know how to do it.  She let go of a business opportunity, a possible earning!

Yeah, we want to be a billionaire but we let good opportunities pass.  We want to be a billionaire but some people does not realize that opportunities has to be grabbed once they knock on our door.

This is for today folks, thank you for reading.




Billionaire Feat. Bruno Mars – Travie McCoy Song and Lyrics Code
Bruno Mars

I wanna be a billionaire so frickin bad
Buy all of the things I never had
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes Magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights, yeaaah
A different city every night oh I swear
The world better prepare for when I’m a billionaire
Travie McCoy
Yeah I would have a show like Oprah
I would be the host of
Everyday Christmas give Travie a wish list
I’d probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt
and adopt a bunch of babies that ain’t never had sh!t
Give away a few Mercedes like here lady have this
And last but not least grant somebody their last wish
It’s been a couple months since I’ve single so
You can call me Travie Claus minus the ho-ho
Get it, I’d probably visit where Katrina hit
And damn sure do a lot more than FEMA did
Yeah can’t forget about me stupid
Everywhere I go Imma have my own theme music
Bruno Mars
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh I swear
The world better prepare for when I’m a billionaire
(oooh ooh) when I’m a Billionaire
(oooh ooooh)
Travie McCoy
I’ll be playing basketball with the President
Dunking on his delegates
Senator … his political etiquette
Toss a couple milli in the air just for the heck of it
But keep the fives, twenty’s …completely separate
And yeah I’ll be in a whole new tax bracket
We in recession but let me take a crack at it
I’ll probably take whatever left and just split it up
So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks
And not a single tummy around me
Would know what hungry was
Eating good sleeping soundly
I know we all have a similar dream
Go in your pocket pull out your wallet
And put it in the air and sing
Bruno Mars
I wanna be a billionaire so frickin bad (so bad)
Buy all of the things I never had
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes Magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh I swear
The world better prepare for when I’m a billionaire
(oooh ooh sing it) when I’m a Billionaire
(oooh ooooh)
I wanna be a billionaire so frickin bad
