"Acquainted" is the sixth track from The Weeknd's second studio album Beauty Behind the Madness. It was released on February 16, 2016 as the fifth and final single off the album.

Background

Demo of the song, titled "Girls Born in the 90s", was leaked alongside "Can't Feel My Face" and "In The Night" before album was released. The Weeknd re-recorded and re-titled it. The original lyrics from that version appeared as the outro to "Acquainted".

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Baby you're no good
Cause they warned me 'bout your type girl, I've been ducking left and right
Baby you're no good
Think I fell for you, I fell for you, I fell for you

[Pre-Chorus]
You got me puttin' time in, time in
Nobody got me feeling this way
You probably think I'm lying, lying
I'm used to bitches comin' right 'way

[Chorus]
You got me touchin' on your body
You got me touchin' on your body
To say that we're in love is dangerous
But girl I'm so glad we're acquainted, oh
I get you touchin' on your body
I get you touchin' on your body
I know I'd rather be complacent
But girl I'm so glad we're acquainted
We're acquainted

[Verse 2]
Baby you're no good
All my niggas think I'm crazy' cause I'm thinkin' 'bout us lately
But really if I could
I'd forget about you, 'get about you, 'get about you

[Pre-Chorus]
You got me puttin' time in, time in
Nobody got me feeling this way
You probably think I'm lying, lying
I'm used to bitches comin' right 'way

[Chorus]
You got me touchin' on your body
You got me touchin' on your body
To say that we're in love is dangerous
But girl I'm so glad we're acquainted, oh
I got you touchin' on your body
I got you touchin' on your body
I know I'd rather be complacent
But girl I'm so glad we're acquainted
We're acquainted

[Verse 3]
Momma called me cryin', cryin', cryin', cryin'
'Cause I won't find somebody that's real (she wants somebody that's real,) yeah
'Cause every time I try to, try to, try to run
The fast life keeps gaining on me (the fast life keeps gaining on me,) shit
But ever since I met you (ever since I met you)
I couldn't believe what you did
So comfort me babe, ain't no rush from me babe
(Woooooh)

[Chorus]
I'll keep on touchin' on your body
I'll keep on touchin' on your body
To say that we're in love is dangerous
But girl I'm so glad we're acquainted, oh
I got you touchin' on your body (touchin' on your body)
I got you touchin' on your body (touchin' on your body)
I know I'd rather be complacent
But girl I'm so glad we're acquainted
We're acquainted

[Outro]
I'm not tryna talk at all
Tryna love you crazy
Put some more inside your cup
And drink till you numb the pain
I got you touchin' on your body
These girls keep touchin' on their body
They got accustomed to the life we live
These girls born in the '90s are dangerous
I got 'em thinkin' that they want me
Although they know they not the only
I got 'em wanting to embrace their sins
These girls born in the '90s are dangerous
