GRAND PIANO

Author: Niki Minaj

Singer: Shannon King

LYRICS

Am I just a fool?

Blind and stupid for loving you

Am I just a silly girl?

So young and naive to think you were

The one who came to take claim of this heart

Cold hearted shame you'll remain just afraid in the dark

And now the people are talking

The people are saying that you have been playing my heart

Like a grand piano

The people are talking

The people are saying that you have been playing my heart

Like a grand piano

So play on, play on, play on

Play on, play on, play on

Play on, play on, play on

Play on, play on

Am I Queen of Fools?

Wrapped up in lies and foolish jewels

What do I see in you?

Maybe I'm addicted to all the things you do

'Cause I keep thinking you were

The one who came to take claim of this heart

Cold-hearted shame you'll remain just afraid in the dark

The people are talking

The people are saying that you have been playing my heart

Like a grand piano

The people are talking

The people are saying that you have been playing my heart

Like a grand piano

So play on, play on, play on

Play on, play on, play on

Play on, play on, play on

Play on, play on

Thanks for listening!!!!
