We Own It – Lyrics to the Fast & Furious 6 Movie Song

cars in fast and furious 6
Don’t ‘own this’ at home, kids.

I’m binging through The Fast and The Furious franchise as a fresh newbie to get ready for Hobbs & Shaw. Music is as useful in scene setting these films as the sound of revving cars and screeching tires. (Also, the word “family” — which is the beating heart of this strangely affectionate flashy fantasy.)

Although We Own It doesn’t pop up until 2013’s Fast and Furious 6 (that I recall — these films are kind of blurring together, with only increasingly wilder set pieces fixing them to memory), the lyrics are rooted in the series’ foundation of street racing/street fighting/street ‘tude.

I’ll go so far as to call We Own It as the Fast & Furious musical anthem. The studio wrote it for F&F, after all.

It also makes sense with the sentiments expressed by the characters. The leads grow past those roots as the series progresses, getting entangled in international plots of espionage and world domination (!), but are in essence, still a crazy bunch of car toughs living by the motto Ride or Die. Or in a poignant moment by Giselle in F&F 6 (especially in retrospect): “This is who we are.”

Learn the lyrics to We Own It here, and enjoy. Just don’t try to make your car fly. Or take on a supertank. Or, well…here’s RunPee’s own compilation of the most exciting Fast and Furious chase scenes in the series.

We Own It — Lyrics

[Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz – 2013]

Money’s the motivation, money’s the conversation
You on vacation, we gettin’ paid so
We on paycation, I did it for the fam’
It’s whatever we had to do, it’s just who I am
Yeah, it’s the life I chose
Gunshots in the dark, one eye closed
And we got it cooking like a one-eyed stove
You can catch me kissing my girl with both eyes closed
Perfecting my passion, thanks for asking
Couldn’t slow down so we had to crash it
You used plastic, we ’bout cash
I see some people ahead that we gon’ pass yeah!

I never feared death or dying
I only fear never trying
I am whatever I am,
Only God can judge me now
One shot, everything rides on tonight
Even if I’ve got three strikes, I’mma go for it
This moment, we own it
And I’m not to be played with
Because it can get dangerous
See these people I ride with
This moment, we own it

And the same ones that I ride with,
Be the same ones that I die with
Put it all out on the line with,
If you looking for me you can find Wiz
In the new car or in the crown with
My new broad, that’s a fine chick
And the wonder squad, I’m down with (And no way around it)
What you say, tell me what you say
Working hard, reppin’ for my dogs, do this everyday,
Takin’ off, looking out for all, makin’ sure we ball,
Like the mob all you do is call
Catch you if you fall, Young Khalifa

I never feared death or dying
I only fear never trying
I am whatever I am,
Only God can judge me now
One shot, everything rides on tonight
Even if I’ve got three strikes, I’mma go for it
This moment, we own it
And I’m not to be played with
Because it can get dangerous
See these people I ride with
This moment, we own it

This the biggest day of my life
We got big guns, been graduated from knives
It’s the day in the life and I’m ready to ride
Got the spirit, I’m feelin’ like a killer inside uh
Financial outbreak, I’m free but I ain’t out yet
Ridin’ with the plug so I’m close to the outlet
At the red light, rims sittin’ off set
I look better on your girl (Than her outfit)

Stuck to the plan, always think that we would stand up, never ran
We the fam’ and loyalty never change up
Been down since day one, look at where we came from
Jumpin’ out on anybody who try to say somethin’ one thing about it
Got a problem, I got the same one
Money rolls, we fold
Plenty clubs we closed
Follow the same code
Never turn our backs, our cars don’t even lose control

One shot, everything rides on tonight
Even if I’ve got three strikes, I’mma go for it
This moment, we own it
And I’m not to be played with
Because it can get dangerous
See these people I ride with
This moment, we own it

This moment we own it
I ride or die for mine
I’m ride or die material
One life to live so here we go
This moment we own it…

10 Most Exciting Scenes (with video clips) from the Fast and The Furious Franchise

 

10 Most Exciting Scenes (with video clips) from the Fast and The Furious Franchise

I just watched the entire Fast and the Furious oeuvre, and here are my Top 10 Favorite F&F Action Scenes. It’s listed from top to bottom, with Number 1 being the BEST scene. Agree, disagree? Comment below which scenes you thought were most exciting after viewing the clips here. I could have easily added another half dozen scenes.

#10 — Fast Five: Opening Scene (1:13)

My only problem with this scene was seeing the bus rolling over, and over, and over, thinking: ummmmm, you know you might have just killed the guy you were trying to rescue, right? 🙂

#9 — Fate of the Furious: Havana Race Scene (5:18)

So ridiculously over the top. How can you not love it?

#8 — Fast and Furious 4: Gas Scene (7:00)

Driving under the tanker full of gas at the very end: that’s something Riddick would do.

#7 — Fast and Furious 4: Kidnapping Braga (Desert Escape) Scene (6:45)

Cars, crashes, humor, and video game level action.

#6 — Fast and Furious 6: Ending Plane Chase Scene (5:28)

Gisel sacrificing herself for Han. This was the first dramatic death in the franchise. Ouch! (No, Letty’s death scene doesn’t count, because we knew that wasn’t going to stick.)

#5 — Fast and Furious 7: Bus Rescue Scene (6:14)

Just another day at the office for these guys.

#4 — Fast Five: Stealing the Vault Scene (6:10)

This was the first scene in the franchise that my wife and I really reacted to. It was just fun to watch that much carnage, no matter how impossible it is for those cars to pull that vault that fast.

#3 — Fast and Furious 7: Car Jump Scene (3:45)

This scene was made all the better by setting up the “Dom, cars don’t fly,” line from Brian, earlier in the movie.

#2 — Fate of the Furious: Zombie Cars Scene (5:10)

OMG. This was brilliant. Forget the fact that it doesn’t work this way. This is F&F; go with it.

#1 — Fate of the Furious: Baby Rescue Scene (5:35)

This was such an adorable scene. No one could have pulled this off better than Jason Statham, other than maybe Dwayne Johnson. Yeah, he could have done it as good, or better. Hey, these two should make an action movie together. That would be the best! 😉

What do you think? What’s your Top 10 F& F chase scenes??
