Lyrics:

I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name
If you come around here, I make them all day
I get one down in a second if you wait

Sometimes I feel sitting on trains
Every stop I get to I'm clocking that game
Everyone's a winner now we're making our fame
Bona fide hustler, making my name

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bombs
Running when we hit them
Lethal poison through their system

No one on the corner has swagger like us
Hit me on my banner, prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going to hell just pumping that gas

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

M.I.A.
Third world democracy
Yeah, I got more records than the K.G.B.
So, uh, no funny business

Some, some, some I, some I murder
Some, I some I let go
Some, some, some I, some I murder
Some, I some I let go

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money

All I want to do is BANG BANG BANG BANG!
And KA-CHING!
And take your money


More notes: I want to be Toph when I grow up. No, seriously. She is just that awesome. Her introduction episode may have been the highlight of the entire series for me.

This vid was a lot of fun to make, mostly because I think I like vidding action scenes the best, what with all that movement and energy, and bending is just gorgeous. This song got stuck in my head for a while last year, and I think it totally captures the right sort of badassery for Toph.

Also, I switched to a new vidding software for this, because video editing on Linux is still the flakiest thing ever. I apologize for the mediocre source quality. I wasn't sure I'd be able to get better quality source before halfamoon ended.

Anyway, if you haven't seen this show yet, you should, because it is awesome.
