Entertainer
Zayn Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You thought you had me, didn't you?
When you lied to my face, I could see the truth
Every step with the way I knew
How you fooled me, boo

Guess you didn't know that
You were my favorite entertainer
I watch you, I laugh with and fuck with you
Don't you take me for a fool
In this game, I own the rules
You were my favorite entertainer
I watch you, I laugh and we fake it too
Don't you take me for a fool
I'ma show you a thing or two

Never seen you comin'
I'll turn you down
When you need me the most, I will turn you
When you need me the most, I will turn you down
Never seen me comin'
I'll turn you down
When you need me the most, I will turn you
When you need me the most, I will turn you down

Thought that you were smarter
I'm ashamed for you
I knew it right away when you stopped lovin' me
It happened when your touch wasn't enough for me

Thought that you should know that
You were my favorite entertainer
I watch you, I laugh with and fuck with you
Don't you play me for a fool
In this game, I own the rules
You were my favorite entertainer
I watch you, I laugh and we fake it too
Don't you take me for a fool
I'ma show you a thing or two

Never seen you comin'
I'll turn you down
When you need me the most, I will turn you
When you need me the most, I will turn you down
Never seen me comin'
I'll turn you down
When you need me the most, I will turn you
When you need me the most, I will turn you down

Know it's harder to take
And let's face it
No one's playing your games, let's face it
I'm bein' straight up
I know a fake love when I see it anyway
I'ma turn you down when you need me anyway, anyway, anyway

Never seen you comin'
I'll turn you down
When you need me the most, I will turn you
When you need me the most, I will turn you down
Never seen me comin'
I'll turn you down (I will turn you down)
When you need me the most, I will turn you
When you need me the most, I will turn you down

I know you need me the most
The most, the most

Overall Meaning

The song "Entertainer" by ZAYN and Topic is about a relationship in which the singer realizes that their partner has been lying to them all along, but they played along with the lie because they found it entertaining. The lyrics suggest that the singer had been aware of their partner's deception all along but continued to play along with them because they enjoyed the entertainment value of being fooled. However, the singer eventually realizes that they have had enough and decides to turn down their partner and treat them the same way they had been treating them.


The chorus of the song "Entertainer" emphasizes how the singer enjoyed the deception and entertainment their partner provided, but they were not going to accept being played for a fool any longer. The lyrics "You were my favorite entertainer, I watch you, I laugh with and fuck with you, Don't you take me for a fool, In this game, I own the rules" suggest that the singer knew what was going on and enjoyed playing the game. However, their partner did not realize that they had been caught until it was too late.


The song's message is that you can only deceive someone for so long before they figure it out and turn the tables on you. It speaks to the dangers of playing games in a relationship, and how eventually, it will backfire on you.

@ioanamoldovan7658

Just listening again to this song, I realise it is a masterpiece.
I think it talks especially about people that are very egocentric and egoistic in a relationship and seek their first wellbeing before the relationship’s.

You can only take as much as you take, even if you truly love someone a lot. You are taken for granted so many times, that you hold so much grudge in you that at some point you begin to hate. You are not sure what is it that you hate. You hate yourself the most, because you suffer because you accepted a lot of boundaries breakings.

You are so angry that people take you as being the demon the devil the one that fucked up.


Sadly, no matter what you do good or bad it comes back to you in a bad form.



@infinityproducts3034

The reason why zayn is underrated is
1) not going to reality shows like
James cordon show
Jimmy Fallon show
Ellen and others
2) not going for a tour but having two album
3) it's actually a very important job for celebrity to speak in front of the crowd and on other stuffs

If he do all these things he can go far and he can be unstoppable

imagine if zayn actually promoted his music

@denisearmani3373

We would top all the charts but he don't need to do that because streams or views cannot define if someone is successful or famous or talented.
This boy is immensely talented and the world knows that and everyone admits that. 😇

@FirstNameLastName-gq4tb

Lauren Ashleigh I wish he did interviews, made appearances, and went on tours :(

@hrishaant
