Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You got me some type of way (hm)
Ain't used to feelin' this way (mm mm)
I do not know what to say (yeah, yeah)
But I know I shouldn't think about it
Took one fuckin' look at your face (hmm)
Now I wanna know how you taste (mm mm)
Usually don't give it away (yeah, yeah)
But you know I'm out here thinkin' 'bout it

Then I realize she's right there
And I'm at home like, "Damn, this ain't fair"

Break up with your girlfriend
Yeah, yeah, 'cause I'm bored
You can hit it in the mornin' (mornin')
Yeah, yeah, like it's yours
I know it ain't right
But I don't care (care)
Break up with your girlfriend
Yeah, yeah, 'cause I'm bored

This shit always happens to me (yeah)
Why can't we just play for keeps? (Mm mm)
Practically on my knees (yeah, yeah)
But I know I shouldn't think about it
You know what you're doin' to me
You're singin' my songs in the streets, yeah, yeah
Actin' all innocent, please
When I know you're out here thinkin' 'bout it

Then you realize she's right there (yeah)
And you're at home like, "Damn, she can't compare"

Break up with your girlfriend
Yeah, yeah, 'cause I'm bored
You can hit it in the mornin' (in the mornin')
Yeah, yeah, like it's yours
I know it ain't right
But I don't care (I don't care, yee)
Break up with your girlfriend (with your girlfriend)
Yeah, yeah, 'cause I'm bored

With your girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend
With your girlfriend
With your girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend

You can say I'm hatin' if you want to
But I only hate on her 'cause I want you
Say I'm trippin' if you feel that
But you without me ain't right (ain't right)
You can call me crazy 'cause I want you
And I never even never fuckin' met you
Say I'm trippin' and it ain't right
But you without me ain't nice (ain't nice, yeah)

Break up with your girlfriend (with your girlfriend)
Yeah, yeah, 'cause I'm bored
You can hit it in the mornin' (hit it in the mornin', yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeah, like it's yours
I know it ain't right
But I don't care (care, yeah)
Break up with your girlfriend (with your girlfriend)
Yeah, yeah, 'cause I'm bored

With your girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend, baby, girlfriend
With your girlfriend




With your girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend
With your girlfriend

Overall Meaning

In "Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored," Ariana Grande sings about wanting someone who is already in a relationship. She is attracted to this person and wants to know what it would be like to be with them intimately. However, she understands that it is not right to interfere in someone's current relationship. The lyrics express her conflicting feelings about this situation and her struggle to resist her desires. She also acknowledges her problematic behavior and the fact that it's not fair to the girlfriend.


The chorus is the most memorable part of the song and delivers a straightforward message. Ariana wants the person she likes to break up with their girlfriend because she is bored and wants to be with him. The lyrics express her feelings of insecurity and longing and also indicate that she understands it is not an acceptable thing to do. The second verse adds emotional depth to the song, where she confesses how this person has affected her and that she is willing to compromise on her morals for him.


Overall, the song seems to be more about Ariana's personal struggle with wanting someone that she cannot have rather than an actual attempt to break up someone's relationship. The lyrics showcase her vulnerability and insecurities as she navigates her feelings.
