  • No, no, no, no, no

    I heard he spent five hundred pounds on jeans
    Goes to the gym at least six times a week
    Wears both shoes with no socks on his feet
    And I hear he's on a new diet at watches what he eats
    He's got his eyebrows plucked and his asshole bleached
    Owns every single Ministry CD
    Tribal tattoos and he don't know what it means
    But I heard he makes you happy, so that's fine by me
    But still, I'm just keepin' it real
    Still lookin' at your Instagram and I'll be creepin' a lil'
    I'll be tryin' not to double tap, from way back
    'Cause I know that's where the trouble's at
    Let me remind you of the days when
    You used to hold my hand
    And when we sipped champagne out of cider cans
    I guess if you were Louis Lane, I wasn't Superman
    Just a young boy tryin' to be loved
    So let me give it to ya

    I don't wanna know about your new man
    'Cause if it was meant to be
    You wouldn't be callin' me up tryin' to
    'Cause I'm positive that he don't wanna know about me
    I don't wanna know about your new man
    We'll get there eventually
    I know you're missin' all this kind of love
    But I'm positive that he don't wanna know about me

    Your new man rents a house in the 'burb
    And wears a man bag on his shoulder, but I call it a purse
    Every year, he goes to Málaga with all the fellas
    Drinks beer, but has a six pack, I'm kinda jealous
    He wears sunglasses indoors, in winter, at nighttime
    And every time a rap song comes on, he makes a gang sign
    Says, chune, boy never light up the room
    But enough about him, girl, let's talk about you
    You were the type of girl who sat beside the water readin'
    Eatin' a packet of crisp, but you will never find you cheatin'
    Now you're eatin' kale, hittin' the gym keepin' up with Kylie and Kim
    In the back of the club, kissin' a boy that ain't him
    Okay, you need to be alone
    And if you wanna talk about it, you can call my phone
    I just thought I would tell you, 'cause oughta know
    You're still a young girl tryin' to be loved
    So let me give it to ya

    I don't wanna know about your new man
    'Cause if it was meant to be
    You wouldn't be callin' me up tryin' to
    'Cause I'm positive that he don't wanna know about me
    I don't wanna know about your new man
    We'll get there eventually
    I know you're missin' all this kind of love
    But I'm positive that he don't wanna know about me

    Baby, I'm not tryin' to ruin your week
    But you act so differently
    When you're with him, I know you're lonely
    Please remember you're still free
    To make the choice and leave
    Don't call me up, you need to show me

    I don't wanna know about your new man
    'Cause if it was meant to be
    You wouldn't be callin' me up tryin' to
    'Cause I'm positive that he don't wanna know about me
    I don't wanna know about your new man
    We'll get there eventually
    I know you're missin' all this kind of love
    But I'm positive that he don't wanna know about me

    But I'm positive that he don't wanna know about
    But I'm positive that he don't wanna know about
    I don't wanna know about your new man Writer/s: Ammar Malik, Benjamin Joseph Levin, Edward Christopher Sheeran, Jessica Ware
