[Intro]
Man, I don't know what the fuck goin' on lately, bro
Everybody actin' all different and shit
Ain't nobody, nobody was talkin' to me like a few months ago
And now everybody hittin' my phone up and shit


[Verse]
I'm a mothafuckin' schema boy, I'm a dreamer boy
I love a girl that don't even fuckin' need a boy
Baby, I'm a beamer boy, I need a beamer, boy
I want a Z3, that's a two-seater, boy
Okay, I pull my cash out, shawty pass out
Take her ass out, then I spaz out
Okay, yeah I hit that, shawty, get back
I got death notes, where my list at?
Yeah, I'm in my zone now, I put my phone down
I'm on my own now, I'm on my own now
Ya girl, she wanna go down on a real one
I hit JGRXXN, like "What's the deal bruh?"
You see me doin' shows now, I'm a pro now
I got hoes now and I got some dough now
But they don't wanna hear that, they want that real shit
They want that drug talk, that "I can't feel" shit

I'm never comin' home now, all alone now
Can't let my bros down, can't let my bros down
I feel like I'm a no one, that's what they told me
I'ma show ya, baby, I was chosen, aye

[Outro]
Beamer boy

Beamer Boy is definitely one of the first Lil Peep tracks I heard that really got me interested in him. It’s catchy and fun and has a different sound to it that is unique to Peep.

A “Beamer” is a nickname for BMW, which is a luxury German car automobile brand. A “beamer boy” is just someone who loves BMW’s. In the song he mentions a Z3, which is a legendary BMW two-seater sports car.

Many BMW car owners refer to the German brand as Beamer and Beemer. Interestingly, Bimmer is the correct term for the cars and the former are used to refer to BMW motorcycles.

Nonetheless, on “Beamer Boy” Peep expresses his fondness of the established automobile brand, speaks on how people are appearing to view him differently now that he has fame and money and makes references to one of BMW’s most recognizable and iconic models, the Z3, which was most famously featured in the 1996 James Bond movie, “GoldenEye.”

In the beginning of the track, Peep is speaking and brings up the fact that he’s kind of made it now, and it’s weird that people are hitting him up and now trying to be around him.

People are hitting up Lil Peep now that he is blowing up and is becoming recognized as a rapper. However, he acknowledges things weren’t always like this – before, people saw him as a nobody which probably made him feel isolated. The line also suggests that he doesn’t like the fame and would prefer to be less-known again.
