Singing in the old bars
Swinging with the old stars
Living for the fame

from Lana Del Rey – Video Games Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Before Lana became a popular singer, she was a lounge singer. Lounge music, usually, features in older, jazz bars — this song is a link to Lana’s past.

She’s met this man, who has lots of money and they’re living a life Lana never thought was possible. Instead of swinging in her backyard, Lana is knows swinging in the limelight with class B celebrities. Her life is has become something like a silver screened film — Lana was always a fan of Marilyn Monroe.
