    Yeah, I made a profile on Tinder
    Since you left me to be with her
    I think that means I'm gettin' desperate
    Wish I could return to sender
    But you don't love me no more
    And I don't even know what for (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

    Knew it was real when you blocked me
    Now I sit at home judgin' my body
    Wondering what I did to lose you (what I did to lose you)
    Why in the hell you ain't choose me?
    Why you don't love me no more? (Yeah)
    And I don't even know what for (nah, ah-ah)

    You must've wanted somethin' different
    Still don't know what I was missin'
    What you asked I would've given
    It ain't right how these hoes be winnin'
    Why they be winnin'? Yeah (why they be? Why they be?)
    No hope for a girl like me, how come they be winnin'? Yeah
    (Why they be? Why they be?)
    And I ain't wanna be
    But you gon' make a hoe out of me

    Yeah, you gon' make me a gold digger (gold digger)
    Maybe I should look like a stripper
    Wearin' Fashion Nova dresses
    All these dudes be so pressed and impressed with it
    You leave me with no choice, ohh
    I can't do this good girl shit no more

    Oh-oh, oh-oh, I just wanted somethin' different
    Still don't know what I was missin'
    What you asked I would've given, yeah
    It ain't right, how these hoes be winnin'
    Yeah, they be winnin' (Why they be? Why they be?)
    No hope for a girl like me, how come they be winnin' (how come they?)
    (Why they be? Why they be?)
    And I ain't wanna be
    But you gon' make a hoe out of me

    Y'all niggas be makin' us sad (makin' us mad)
    Then say y'all don't know why we mad (know why we mad)
    So we start actin' like we don't care
    'Cause y'all niggas be takin' us there
    'Cause you don't want us no more, ooh (ooh-ooh)
    It breaks us to the core, ooh

    Boy, you must wanted somethin' different
    Still don't know what you was missin'
    What you asked I would've given
    It ain't right how these hoes be winnin'
    Why they be winnin'? (Why they be? Why they be? Why they be?)
    No hope for a girl like me (why they be?)
    How come they be winnin'? (Why they be? Why they be?)
    I ain't wanna be
    But you gon' make a hoe out of me (ooh)
