Liam Payne & J Balvin - 'Familiar' Lyrics

[Intro: J Balvin]
J Balvin, man
Liam Payne
My G

[Verse 1: Liam Payne & J Balvin]
It's simple, you dip low
Your hips roll, you do the Calypso
An intro is all that I need, oh, yeah
And I start first
You know what I mean
From scratch, you know I'm pa 'ti (you, you)

[Pre-Chorus: Liam Payne]
Ooh, ooh, I just wanted your name, baby
But if it's cool, I wanna get inside your brain
Oh-uh-ahh

[Chorus: Liam Payne]
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar? (yeah)
I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' ya (hey)
What's on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar?
I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin', I'm feelin' ya
What's on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get

[Verse 2: Liam Payne]
Your waistline, the bassline (bass)
In real life, don't want it on FaceTime
'Cause great minds, they think just the same (hey, yeah)
You shake like vibrato
A model or some kind of bottle
Well, pour up 'cause I want a taste (a taste, oh)

[Pre-Chorus: Liam Payne, J Balvin]
Ooh, ooh, I just wanted to get your name
Sólo quería tu nombre, bebé
But if it's cool, I wanna get inside your brain

[Chorus: Liam Payne, J Balvin]
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar? (familiar)
I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' ya (familiar)
What's on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar?
I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' ya (feelin' ya)
What's on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get

[Bridge: J Balvin, Liam Payne]
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Only you and me
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Only you and me
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get

[Verse 3: J Balvin]
I would like you and me to familiarize ourselves
A little chemistry and the party we light
Forget critics, that's how we understand each other
What do you think if we get into your mind?
Miss, what do you need?
It would be much better if you participate
So far no, better close
I'm going to do everything that I can
And you know that what you wear looks good on you (it looks good)
I fall much better than a hundred dollar bill

[Chorus: Liam Payne]
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar?
I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' ya
What's on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar?
I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' I'm feelin' ya
What's on your mind for later tonight?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get

[Outro: Liam Payne]
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Can we get famili-familiar?
Ah-ah-ah-ah
I just wanna get to know ya
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Can we get famili-familiar?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get
Ah-ah-ah-ah
I just wanna get to know you
Ah-ah-ah-ah
I just wanna get to know ya
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Can we get famili-familiar?
Let me be the one to fill it up
Can we get
