Lyrics[]

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
You got to be stronger baby, do it for us
Cause if you give up then I will to
You got to be stronger baby, I’m just not strong enough
Cause if you leave what will I do?
Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh (woo)
Cause if you give up then I will to (hey)

[Verse: Ariana Grande]
Show me that you love me one time, uh
I’m looking to get it off of your mind, uh
Try not to fall away
You know I like it your way
Lips like a sip of sweet wine
You know I love you long time
You take my breath away
No time to waste but you got to

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
You got to be stronger baby, do it for us
Cause if you give up then I will to
You got to be stronger baby, I’m just not strong enough
Cause if you leave what will I do?
Oh, oh

[Chorus: T-Pain]
You've got to be stronger baby, do it for us
Cause if you give up then I will too, oh
You've got to be stronger baby, I'm just not strong enough
Cause if you leave what will I do? Oh, oh
Cause if you give up then I will too, oh, ah, hey

[Verse 1: T-Pain]
Show me that you love me, one time uh
Been looking to get it off of your mind, yeah
Try not to fall away, you know I like it your way
Do it baby, don't talk it just wind up
Brb, I love you long time uh
You taking my breath away, no time to waste cause you've got to, you-

[Chorus: T-Pain]
You've got to be stronger baby, do it for us

You've got to be stronger baby, I'm just not strong enough
Cause if you leave what will I do? Hey, oh

[Verse 2: T-Pain]
Feel it just to look up, be your pressure
Promise me I'll never get you lower
Come on baby, let me see you step up
Baby I can't do it alone, yeah I'm gon' mess up
Show 'em never be up and down my latter
Steppin' on the blitz to make them get up
Papi, don't take it up a level
Tell them to God damn shut up, cause you, you, you

[Chorus: T-Pain]
You've got to be stronger baby, do it for us
Cause if you give up then I will too, oh

Cause if you leave what will I do? Oh, oh
Cause if you give up then I will too, oh, ah, hey
Cause if you give up then I will too

[Bridge: T-Pain]
You heard me right, I'm hers for life
There ain't no breaking us apart
You cannot take her off my heart
She stands for me, and I stand for her
This mom is a writer, and I am a roller
Put us together, you gon stop bolders
We both go-

[Post-Chorus: T-Pain]
Cut them up, cut them up
Cut them up, cut them up
Killer crosser, killer crosser
Killer crosser, killer crosser
Round the world, round the world
We go round the world, round the world
We go up again, up again
Up again, up again

[Chorus: T-Pain]
You've got to be stronger baby, do it for us
Cause if you give up then I will too, oh
You've got to be stronger baby, I'm just not strong enough
Cause if you leave what will I do? Oh, oh
Cause if you give up then I will too, oh, ah
Cause if you give up then I will too, oh-oh-oh
