Billionaire by Travie McCoy featuring Bruno Mars is featured in Audition, the first episode of Season Two. In the episode, it is sung primarily by Artie and Sam, although the other male members of the New Directions, with the exception of Kurt, sing back-up vocals.

Lyrics

Sam:
I wanna be a billionaire so freaking 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
I, I swear, the world better prepare
For when I'm a billionaire

Artie:
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 ain't 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 that I've been single, so
You can call me Artie Claus minus the "Ho, ho"

Hehe, get it, I'd probably visit where Katrina hit
And darn sure do a lot more than FEMA did
Yeah, can't forget about me, stupid
Everywhere I go I'mma 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 (Uhu, uhu)
Oh yeah, yeah (And what else?)
A different city every night, oh (Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I, I swear the world better prepare (For what?)

For when I'm a billionaire (New Directions Boys: Ooh, ooh) (Oh)
For when I'm a Billionaire (New Directions Boys: Ooh, ooh) (Puck: Let's go)

Puck:
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
Wuld 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 freaking bad (So bad)
Buy all of the things I never had (Buy everything, haha)
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen (What up Oprah? Aha)

Oh, every time I close my eyes (Oh, what ya see, what ya see, bro?)
I see my name in shining lights (Uhu, uhu)
Oh yeah, yeah (And what else?)
A different city every night, oh (Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I, I swear the world better prepare (For what?)

For when I'm a billionaire (Yeah) (New Directions Boys: Ooh, ooh) (Sing it)
For when I'm a Billionaire (New Directions Boys: Ooh, ooh) (Oh)

I wanna be a billionaire so freaking 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 due to explicit language.
  • Puck (Mark Salling) never had a solo in the episode version as it was cut short. His solo only featured on the album version.
  • This is the first song where Chord, Kevin and Mark all have solos. The second one is Friday and the third is Bella Notte.

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.
