Song of the Day #4,882: ‘Stay’ – The Kid LAROI feat. Justin Bieber

For the next two weeks, I’m taking my first look in six months at “What the Kids are Listening To,” a snapshot of the top songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 (as of November 10).

Sitting at the #1 spot is Adele’s ‘Easy On Me,’ which has occupied that perch since its debut a month ago.

At #2 is ‘Stay’ by Australian rapper Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber. The pair previously collaborated on a track for Bieber’s album Justice, released earlier this year.

I kind of want to smack both of these guys, but I have to admit the song is pretty catchy.

[Chorus: The Kid LAROI]
I do the same thing I told you that I never would
I told you I’d change, even when I knew I never could
I know that I can’t find nobody else as good as you
I need you to stay, need you to stay, hey (Oh)

[Verse 1: The Kid LAROI]
I get drunk, wake up, I’m wasted still
I realize the time that I wasted here
I feel like you can’t feel the way I feel
Oh, I’ll be fucked up if you can’t be right here

[Pre-Chorus: The Kid LAROI]
Oh, ooh-woah (Oh, ooh-woah, ooh-woah)
Oh, ooh-woah (Oh, ooh-woah, ooh-woah)
Oh, ooh-woah (Oh, ooh-woah, ooh-woah)
Oh, I’ll be fucked up if you can’t be right here

[Chorus: The Kid LAROI]
I do the same thing I told you that I never would
I told you I’d change, even when I knew I never could
I know that I can’t find nobody else as good as you
I need you to stay, need you to stay, hey
I do the same thing I told you that I never would
I told you I’d change, even when I knew I never could
I know that I can’t find nobody else as good as you
I need you to stay, need you to stay, hey

[Verse 2: Justin Bieber]
When I’m away from you, I miss your touch (Ooh)
You’re the reason I believe in love
It’s been difficult for me to trust (Ooh)
And I’m afraid that I’ma fuck it up
Ain’t no way that I can leave you stranded
‘Cause you ain’t ever left me empty-handed
And you know that I know that I can’t live without you
So, baby, stay

[Pre-Chorus: Justin Bieber, The Kid LAROI & Both]
Oh, ooh-woah (Oh, ooh-woah, ooh-woah)
Oh, ooh-woah (Oh, ooh-woah, ooh-woah)
Oh, ooh-woah (Oh, ooh-woah, ooh-woah)
I’ll be fucked up if you can’t be right here

[Chorus: The Kid LAROI with Justin Bieber]
I do the same thing I told you that I never would
I told you I’d change, even when I knew I never could
I know that I can’t find nobody else as good as you
I need you to stay, need you to stay, hey
I do the same thing I told you that I never would
I told you I’d change, even when I knew I never could
I know that I can’t find nobody else as good as you
I need you to stay, need you to stay, hey

[Outro: The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber]
Woah-oh
I need you to stay, need you to stay, hey

    I know this will sound like I have joined the Tipper Gore Music Appreciation Club, but I really miss the days when you would not have F-bombs and other profanity so casually dropped into commercial pop songs that are either targeted to or likely to be heard and sung by kids 6 to 12 years old.
