7 Bruno Mars Lyrics that will add Instant Swagger to your Day

Ah, Bruno Mars. Didn’t he grow up so fast? One minute he’s hanging onto our every word, catching grenades for us and telling us he wants to marry us; the next minute he’s strutting round in edgy shirts telling us we’re lucky to have him.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I am ALL OVER this Bruno with added ‘tude, and can’t help but notice that my walk turns into something more of a strut whenever he comes on the radio (if I’m driving, this manifests itself as an infinitely more assertive gear change).

Read on and you too can inject that swag with a little help from the B man. Trust me - there's one for every occasion:

Video Calling all the laydeez

Video

Calling all the laydeez

For a night on the town:

Well, looky here looky here
Ah what do we have?
Another pretty thang ready for me to grab

- Runaway Baby

 

When you and the squad enter the club at just the right amount of drunk and genuinely believe anyone in there would go for you.
 

Video But which one is Bruno?

But which one is Bruno?

For a duvet day with added swagger:

I’ll just strut in my birthday suit
And let everything hang loose
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah….

- The Lazy Song

This one’s pretty self-explanatory. The yeahs are integral. 
 

Video Not dissimilar to me on payday.

Video

Not dissimilar to me on payday.

For payday:

Ooh s**t, I’m a dangerous man with some money in my pocket (Keep up)

So many pretty girls around me and they waking up the rocket (Keep up)

- 24K Magic

Tell me this isn’t THE tune to hit Tescos with on payday. Only in my fantasy I substitute pretty girls for savoury treats. Branded hummus, come at me.

Video If you can have a good time alone with some chalk the possibilities really are endless.

If you can have a good time alone with some chalk the possibilities really are endless.

For miscellaneous good times:

I’ll rent a beach house in Miami

Wake up with no jammies

- That’s What I Like

Somehow Bruno has turned the age-old nightmare of waking up with no clothes on into a luxury fantasy. Sign me up.

 

Video He's got his eye on a girl with a help to buy ISA.

For when you're adulting:

Shout out to the girls that pay they rent on time

- Chunky

FINALLY someone has acknowledged the sheer agro of paying for what I have.

 

Video Getting good price per wear on that hat.

Video

Getting good price per wear on that hat.

For when your look is on fleek:

It’s my birthday

No, it’s not

But I still look good though

 - Perm

The most versatile of the sass quotes: can be used 364 days a year.

 

Video What do you mean your phone ran out of battery??

What do you mean your phone ran out of battery??

For when Bae ain’t treating you right:

I got too many girls on hold for you to be so bold

Too many on my team for you to act so mean

 - Calling All My Lovelies

Full diva mode descends circa 15 minutes after Bae doesn’t reply. 

 

Bruno, thanks for adding a boatload of swagger to our lives, whatever the day. Keep walking tall, man. Keep walking tall.
