The music starts with RM singing the chorus part in the beginning, followed by Lil Nas X's verse. Halfway through the song, RM's own lyric comes out and here are the lyrics.

I got the homies in the back
Have u heard of that
Homies made of steels from Korea
They the best
Ridin’ to the farm
Grabbin’ all the corn
We gonna get your money with my homie in your backyard

So I guess you will be confused by the line "Homies made of steels from Korea". Well actually, homie has two meanings in his lyric. One is as we all know it, it means friend. And in Korean it means a type of Korean gardening tool to dig up the soil, thus the line that says "we gonna get your money with my homie in your backyard".

Funny how RM chose the word "Homie" as wordplay because of what he mentioned in this year's Bangtan News. According to him, his recent hobby is to plant potted plants!
