Arnold Schwarzenegger in the motherfucking house
Hasta la vista, baby

It's ancient Greece
I'm eating grapes at the Parthenon
Watching lions eat prisoners at the Colosseum
I'm fucking bored at the vomitorium
Waiting to catch my flight
I got my backpack, I got blueberry scones
I got my noise-cancellation headphones
And I'm off to the Hyatt Regency
This is a load of crap
I said "Another fucking Hyatt Regency?"
They got the best of me

The best of me, the best of me
They got the best of me
The best of me, the best of me
They got the best of me

I'm Drew Bledsoe(?) I got an afro
I got my head up in a mask
I'm like a ninja, I got my nunchuks
And I've been training like a seal
So I won't give a fuck
I'm like Caesar
You could stab me in the back
Pour my blood on your salad
I'm like a senator
Tweet my dick, stick(?) maids, interns, prostitutes
And then my wife
Oh, I love my life
They got the best of me

The best of me, the best of me
They got the best of me
The best of me, the best of me
They got the best of me

I could buy a million dollars
If I had a million dollars I could spare
At the gym, I'd run for hours
And I would not have to go out anywhere
I'd take a class on how to take a class
And when it's over, I'd just be glad that I pass
Pass the class
Pass some gas

Got the best of me
The best of me, the best of me, motherfuckers
Got the best of me
The best of me, the best of me
They got the best of me

(Got the best of, got the best of, got the best of me)
