Here is the complete lyrics of "Problem" by Ariana Grande.

Baby, even though I hate ya
I wanna love ya
I want you
And even though I can't forgive ya
I really want to
I want you
Tell me, tell me baby
Why did you leave me
Cause even though I shouldn't want it
I gotta have it
I want you

Head in the clouds
Got no weight on my shoulders
I should be wiser
And realize that I've got
One less problem without ya

Big Sean
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem
One less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem

Ariana Grande
I know you're never gonna wake up
I gotta give up
But it's you
Know I shouldn't never call back
Or let you come back
But it's you
Every time you touch me
And say you love me
I get a little bit breathless
I shouldn't want it
But it's you

Head in the clouds
Got no weight on my shoulders
I should be wiser
And realize that I've got

Big Sean
One less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem
One less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem

Ariana Grande
It's Iggy Iz
What you got?

Iggy Azalea
Smart money bettin' I'll be better off without you
In no time I'll be forgettin' all about you
You sayin' that you know
But I really really doubt you
Understand my life is easy
When I ain't around you

Iggy Iggy
Too biggie to be here stressing'
I'm thinkin' I love the thought of you
More than I love your presence
And the best thing now
Is probably for you to exit
I let you go
Let you back
I finally learned my lesson
No half-stepping
Either you want it or you just playin'
I'm listening to you knowing
I can't believe what you're sayin'
There's a million you's baby boy
So don't be dumb
I got 99 problems
But you won't be one
What

Big Sean
One less, one less problem
One less, one less problem

Ariana Grande
Head in the clouds
Got no weight on my shoulders
I should be wiser
And realize that I've got

Big Sean
One less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem
One less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem
