Bill de Blasio Took The Stage At His Victory Party To Lorde's "Royals"

"Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room, we don't care." The New York City mayor-elect came out Tuesday night to a very non-traditional election victory song in Brooklyn.

Here are the lyrics to "Royals"

I've never seen a diamond in the flesh

I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies

And I'm not proud of my address,

In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom

Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,

We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.

But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.

Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.

We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair.

And we'll never be royals.
