Lyrics

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & Missy Elliott]
Let's go
Baby, I just want you to be mine
Won't you give me a bit of your time, oh woah
Chasin' you, no, I won't stop trying
Just meet me at the borderline
It's loose

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
You play hard to get
But I know you want me, too
Ain't out here looking for other dudes
So I'm keep it tight for you

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande & Missy Elliott]
You know I'm the wifey type, babe
You know I be one of a kind, oh
Once you taste my ice cream, I bet you won't ever leave
I know it's hard to believe
Boy, you got me all on my knees
Bada-da-dum, bada-da-dum
It ain't too hard for me
Bada-da-dum, bada-da-dum
Stop playing, too hard for me

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Baby, I just want you to be mine
Won't you give me a bit of your time, oh woah
Chasin' you, no, I won't stop trying
Just meet me at the borderline

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
Seems like I'm coming on strong
But I don't want this time to pass
I know you got a lot of chicks down at you
But I bet they cannot last

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande & Missy Elliott]
You know I'm the wifey type, babe
You know I be one of a kind, oh (let's go)
Once you taste my ice cream, I bet you won't ever leave
I know it's hard to believe
Boy, you got me all on my knees
Bada-da-dum, bada-da-dum
It ain't too hard for me
Bada-da-dum, bada-da-dum
Stop playing, too hard for me (let's go)

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Baby, I just want you to be mine
Won't you give me a bit of your time, oh woah
Chasin' you, no, I won't stop trying
Just meet me at the borderline

[Verse 3: Missy Elliott]
I'm like, you got me so on a chase
Got me feeling so out of place
Think 'bout you all of my days
Wish you'd chew on me like fresh grapes
Not tryna cuff you or crowd your space
I'm tryna find you words just to say
Dang you fine, and look at that face
At the borderline, beside me, you lay

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Baby, I just want you to be mine
Won't you give me a bit of your time, oh woah
Chasin' you, no, I won't stop trying
Just meet me at the borderline
