Working Lyrics – Tate McRae & Khalid


[Intro: Tate McRae]
We’re not working, working, oh, oh

[Verse 1: Tate McRae]
It’s a feeling that I can’t explain
That I miss you more when I’m away
And I swear I’ve been counting the days (Oh, ooh-ooh)
But when you’re here, I think I need some space
Well shit, we’ve always had good conversations, or we used to
But I haven’t been serious since high school
Maybe I’m the one to blame (Blame)
Mm-hmm
But in real life it’s not the same, no, oh

[Chorus: Tate McRae & Khalid]
And when I’m working (Yeah, ayy)
You’re the only one that I want
But we’re not working (Ooh, ooh)
Yeah, I told you from the start, I’m not perfect (No, oh)
Yeah, that’s why you like me so much
We’re not working (Yeah), we’re not working (No, ooh)

[Post-Chorus: Tate McRae & Khalid]
La-da, da, da-da, da
La-da, da, da-da, da, da (Ayy, yeah)
La-da, da, da-da, da
La-da, da, da-da, da, da

[Verse 2: Khalid]
You say all we need is time (All we need is time, yeah)
I don’t wanna dim your light
But I can’t say I’m an introvert (No, I can’t)
The time is right, we just don’t work
Don’t work no more, no

[Pre-Chorus: Khalid]
Oh, oh, I don’t mean to be rude (Mean to be rude)
Still got a thing for you (Mm-hmm)
I gotta tell the truth, yeah, ayy
Oh, oh, no more leadin’ you on
That’s wrong, so wrong

[Chorus: Khalid & Tate McRae, Both]
And when I’m working (Yeah, yeah)
You’re the only one that I want
But we’re not working (No, ooh)
I told you from the start
I’m not perfect, no, oh (Oh)
That’s why you like me so much
But we’re not working (Yeah), we’re not working

[Post-Chorus: Tate McRae & Khalid]
We’re not working
La-da, da, da-da, da
La-da, da, da-da, da, da (We’re not working, working, no, oh)
La-da, da, da-da, da (Ooh, ooh)
La-da, da, da-da, da, da
We’re not working, working, no, oh
La-da, da, da-da, da

[Pre-Chorus: Tate McRae, Khalid, Both]
Now, oh, I don’t mean to be rude (Don’t mean to be rude)
Still got a thing for you
I gotta tell the truth (Oh-oh, ooh, oh)
No more leadin’ you on
That’s wrong, so wrong

[Chorus: Tate McRae & Khalid, Khalid, Tate McRae]
And when I’m working (When I’m working, no)
You’re the only one that I want
But we’re not working (Shawty we’re not working)
I told you from the start, I’m not perfect (Yeah, yeah)
That’s why you like me so much
But we’re not working (No, oh), we’re not working

[Post-Chorus: Tate McRae & Khalid]
We’re not working
La-da, da, da-da, da
La-da, da, da-da, da, da (We’re not working, working, no, oh)
La-da, da, da-da, da (Ooh, ooh)
La-da, da, da-da, da, da (Ooh, ooh)
We’re not working, working, no, oh
La-da, da, da-da, da
Ah
