Icon for Hire – Sticks & Stones

Sticks & Stones

[Intro]
(Sticks and stones
Sticks and stones)

[Verse 1]
It's been brought to my attention, got my name on your lips
You been blowing dirt on it for days
Telling everyone my head is too big for my crown
'Cause when a woman wears it that's what they say

[Pre-Chorus]
I built this kingdom from the ground up
Any castle's what it's made of, oh

[Chorus]
Hurl your sticks and cast your stones
I sit higher with each blow
I know something you don't know
Your sticks and stones just forge my throne

[Post-Chorus]
Sticks and stones
Sticks and stones

[Verse 2]
I'm not after the attention but all eyes are on me
Feel my power, I think I'll let it reign
King of clubs, they'll want me dead
They'll be screaming, "Off with her head"
For the queen of harlots and deranged

[Pre-Chorus]
I built this kingdom from the ground up
Any castle's what it's made of

[Chorus]
Hurl your sticks and cast your stones
I sit higher with each blow
I know something you don't know
Your sticks and stones just forge my throne

[Post-Chorus]
Sticks and stones
Sticks and stones

[Bridge]
Familiar places on her throne
Built off every insult thrown
Build a castle, build a home
Every traitor overthrown
Hell, there's no fury like me
Don't mess with her majesty
Well-behaved women rarely make
An empire

An empire
An empire

[Chorus]
Oh, hurl your sticks and cast your stones (cast your stones)
I sit higher with each blow
I know something you don't know
Your sticks and stones just forge my throne

[Outro]
Sticks and stones
Sticks and stones
(Sticks and stones
Sticks and stones)
