Some of the lyrics include:

I wanna be a billionaire so bad
Buy all of the things I never had
Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen

McCoy has called Dutchess County home for years.

Neither are actually billionaires, but turns out many billionaires live in New York State. More than anywhere else in the world, actually.
