Breadwinner Lyrics

[Verse 1: Kacey Musgraves]
Here's what he'll do, he'll play it cool
When he hangs out with a woman like you
Say he ain't pressed by all your success
Tell you he's different than all of the rest

[Pre-Chorus: Kacey Musgraves]
You're gonna give it all and give it all
But you won't get it back
I'm telling you, it's gonna hurt
Stay away from a boy like that

[Chorus: Kacey Musgraves]
He wants a breadwinner
He wants your dinner
Until he ain't hungry anymore
He wants your shimmer
To make him feel bigger
Until he starts feeling insecure
I wish somebody would've told me the truth
Say, "He's never gonna know what to do
With a woman like you
With a woman like you"

[Verse 2: Kacey Musgraves]
I see the games a mile away
They only end when another heart breaks
But all of his wounds ain't an excuse
For you to put up with how he treats you

[Pre-Chorus: Kacey Musgraves]
You're gonna give it all and give it all
But you won't get it back
I'm telling you, it's gonna hurt
Stay away from a boy like that

[Chorus: Kacey Musgraves]
He wants a breadwinner
He wants your dinner
Until he ain't hungry anymore
He wants your shimmer
To make him feel bigger
Until he starts feeling insecure
I wish somebody would've told me the truth
Say, "He's never gonna know what to do
With a woman like you
With a woman like you"

[Bridge: Kacey Musgraves]
I can sleep at night
Knowing I really tried
I put in the time
But the fault isn't mine

[Chorus: Kacey Musgraves]
That he wants a breadwinner
He wants your dinner
Until he ain't hungry anymore (Anymore)
He wants a breadwinner
He wants your dinner
Until he ain't hungry anymore (Anymore)
He wants your shimmer
To make him feel bigger
Until he starts feeling insecure
I wish somebody would've told me the truth
Say, "He's never gonna know what to do

[Outro: Kacey Musgraves]
With a woman like you
With a woman like you
With a woman like you and me"
He likes what he sees
