[Intro]
Ah-ah, nah, nah (Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
Nah, nah, ah, mmm (Oh, ah, aye)

[Verse 1]
Okay, maybe this one is the right click, yeah
Okay, I think it's the, really like that, yeah
Okay, I think and, yeah, I find that, yeah
Any night, anything they let me
Done it before, yeah, yeah, yeah
Done it before
You told me you done it before
You wanted me to hear it all (Another dirty fault)

[Chorus]
I don't wanna love you lately
And I don’t belong to thee
I’m not addicted, baby
And I know, I'm with that, baby

[Post-Chorus]
Ah, yeah, baby
You can have whatever done, baby
You the one, to holding that, baby
All I do, all I've done, baby
And I didn't need that before
And I didn't need that before
And I didn't need that before
Yeah, baby

[Verse 2]
Chillin' with whatever before
You ain't really with it before, yeah
And you know I like it like that
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da

[Chorus]
I don't wanna love you lately
And I don’t belong to thee
I‘m not addicted, baby
And I know, I'm with that, baby

[Post-Chorus]
Ah, yeah, baby
You can have whatever done, baby
You the one, to holding that, baby
All I do, all I've done, baby
And I didn't need that before
And I didn't need that before
And I didn't need that before
Yeah, baby
