Lyrics

Jesy:
I always say what I'm feeling
I was born without a zip on my mouth
Sometimes I don't even mean it
It takes a little while to figure me out

Leigh-Anne:
I like my coffee with two sugars in it
High heels and my jewellery drippin'
Drink and I get all fired up (Hey hey hey)
Insecure but I'm working with it
Many things that I could get rid of
Ain't about to give it up

Jade:
I made a few mistakes, I regret it nightly
I broke a couple hearts that I wear on my sleeve
My mama always said "Girl you're trouble" and
And now I wonder could you fall for a woman like me?

Perrie:
And every time we touch, boy you make me feel weak
I can tell you're shy and I think you're so sweet
Spending every night under covers and
Still I wonder could you fall for a woman like me?
(A woman)

Little Mix:
Woman like me, like a woman like me
La-la-la woman like me, like a woman like me (A woman)
La-la-la wo-man like me, like a woman like me
La-la-la woman like me, like a woman like me

Jesy:
And baby just be mine for the weekend
We can get a takeaway and sit on the couch
Or we can go out for the evening
Hopefully end up with you kissing my mouth hey hey

Leigh-Anne:
You got them blue jeans with the rip up in 'em
My hair with your fingers in it
Love it when you turn me on
Yoncé with a little bit of
Love drunk in the middle with it
Get down to our favourite song

Jade:
I made a few mistakes, I regret it nightly
I broke a couple hearts that I wear on my sleeve
My mama always said "Girl you're trouble" and
And now I wonder could you fall for a woman like me?

Perrie:
And every time we touch, boy you make me feel weak
I can tell you're shy and I think you're so sweet
Spending every night under covers and
Still I wonder could you fall for a woman like me?
(A woman)

Little Mix:
Woman like me, like a woman like me
La-la-la woman like me, like a woman like me (A woman)
La-la-la wo-man like me, like a woman like me
La-la-la woman like me, like a woman like me (Nicki: Yo)

Nicki:
Woman like me, yes a woman like me
Soon as I brush up on him, I can tell he like me
I know all the mandem ah try fi swipe me
Nah the duppy could afford to ice me
Tell em there's a bad Trini bitch up ina your area
But the more bad bitches then the more merrier
Baddies to my left and to the right they little scarier
Rude boy, tell me, can you handle all this derrière?
Rrrr
A million, I'm getting my billion
Greatest of all time cos I'ma chameleon
I switch it up for every era, I'm really bomb
These bitches really wanna be Nicki, I'm really mom
Apple cut the cheque, I want all this money
7-Up girl group the tech and leave all this bloody
It's the Queen and Little Mix, skated on em sorry
My daddy is Indian (swish), all this curry

Little Mix:
Woman like me, like a woman like me
La-la-la woman like me, like a woman like

Jade:
(with Perrie: I made a few mistakes, I regret it nightly)

My mama always said "Girl you're trouble" and
And now I wonder could you fall for a woman like me? (Jesy: Like a woman like me yeah)

Perrie:
And every time we touch, boy you make me feel weak
I can tell you're shy and I think you're so sweet (Perrie: So sweet)
Spending every night under covers and
Still I wonder could you fall for a woman like me? (Leigh-Anne: Fall for a woman like, for a woman like me)
(A woman)
