Lyrics

Jung Kook:
Smooth like butter
Like a criminal undercover
Gon' pop like trouble
Breakin' into your heart like that

Cool shade stunner
Yeah, I owe it all to my mother
Hot like summer
Yeah, I'm makin' you sweat like that

Jung Kook:
Break it down

Jin:
Oh, when I look in the mirror
I'll melt your heart into two
I got that superstar glow so (Ooh)

RM:
Do the boogie like

Jung Kook:
Side step, right, left to my beat (Heartbeat)
High like the moon, rock with me, baby

Jimin:

Let me show you 'cause talk is cheap

Side step, right, left to my beat (Heartbeat)
Get it, let it roll

Jung Kook:

Pull you in like no other

V:
Don't need no Usher
To remind me you got it bad

Jin:

Straight up, I got ya
Makin' you fall like that
Break it down

Oh, when I look in the mirror
I'll melt your heart into two
I got that superstar glow so (Ooh)

Got that right body and that right mind
Rollin' up to party got the right vibe
Smooth like butter
Hate us love us

Fresh boy pull up and we lay low
All the playas get movin' when the bass low
Got ARMY right behind us when we say so
Let's go

Side step, right, left to my beat (Right left to my beat)
High like the moon, rock with me, baby

Let me show you 'cause talk is cheap (You know that talk is cheap)
