Lyrics

Sam:
I wanna be a billionaire so freakin' bad
Buy all of the things I never had
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smilin' next to Oprah and the Queen
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
Yeah, a different city every night oh right
I swear the world better prepare
For when I'm a billionaire

Artie (with New Directions Boys):
Yeah I would have a show like (Oprah)
I would be the (host of), Everyday (Christmas)
Give Artie a (wish list)
I'd probably pull an (Angelina and Brad Pitt)
And adopt a bunch of babies that (I never had it)

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 Artie Claus minus the (Ho-Ho)
Get it, hehe, 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

Sam (Artie):
Oh every time I close my eyes (Oh what ya see, What ya see bro?)
I see my name in shining lights (Huh huh, Huh huh)
Oh yeah hey!
A different city every night oh right
I swear the world better prepare (For what ?)
For when I'm a billionaire (New Directions Boys: Oh oooh oh oooh)
For when I'm a Billionaire (New Directions Boys: Oh oooh oh oooh)
For when I'm a Billionaire

Puck (with New Directions Boys):
I'll be playing basketball with (The President)
Dunking on his (delegates)
Then I'll compliment him on his (Political etiquette)
Toss a couple million in the air just for (the heck of it)
But keep the fives, twenties, tens and Bens (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's 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

Sam (Artie):
I wanna be a billionaire so freakin' bad (So bad)
Buy all of the things I never had (Buy ev'rything haha)
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen (What up Oprah? Haha)
Oh every time I close my eyes (Oh what ya see, what ya see, bro?)
I see my name in shining lights (Uh huh, Uh huh)
A different city every night oh right
I swear the world better prepare (For what?)
For when I'm a billionaire (New Directions Boys: Oh oooh oh oooh) (Artie: Sing it)
For when I'm a Billionaire (New Directions Boys: Oh oooh oh oooh)
I wanna be a billionaire so freakin' bad

Trivia

  • The first time Sam claims to have sung in front of anyone.
  • This song also happened to be Chord's audition song, but he had to sing one key higher than in his audition due to time constraints, as Adam Anders (The Glee Music Producer) had no time to tailor the song for it.
  • The lyrics were changed to "I wanna be a billionaire, so freakin' bad[...]," because they contained profanity.
  • Puck (Mark Salling ) never had a solo in the episode version as it was cut short. His solo only featured on the album version.

Errors

  • During Sam's performance, there is a minor continuity error, where the guitar strap is being worn differently in different shots. At times, he is wearing it correctly, with the red side showing outwards; other times, it is upside-down, showing the black side.
