Lucy Liu with my girl, Drew
Cameron D. and Destiny
Charlie's Angels, come on

Question, tell me what you think about me?
I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings
Only ring your cell-why when I'm feelin' lonely
When it's all over please get up and leave

Question, tell me how you feel about this?
Try to control me boy you get dismissed
Pay my own fun, oh and I pay my own bills
Always 50/50 in relationships

The shoe on my feet, I've bought it
The clothes I'm wearing, I've bought it
The rock I'm rockin', I've bought it
'Cause I depend on me

If I wanted the watch you're wearin', I'll buy it
The house I live in, I've bought it
The car I'm driving, I've bought it
I depend on me, I depend on me

All the women who are independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honey's who makin' money
Throw your hands up at me

All the mommas who profit dollas
Throw your hands up at me
All the ladies who truly feel me
Throw your hands up at me

Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?
Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?

Tell me how you feel about this?
Who would I want if I would wanna live
I worked hard and sacrificed to get what I get
Ladies, it ain't easy bein' independent

Question, how'd you like this knowledge that I brought
Braggin' on that cash that he gave you is to front
If you're gonna brag make sure it's your money you flaunt
Depend on no one else to give you what you want

The shoe on my feet, I've bought it
The clothes I'm wearing, I've bought it
The rock I'm rockin', I've bought it
'Cause I depend on me

If I wanted the watch you're wearin', I'll buy it
The house I live in, I've bought it
The car I'm driving, I've bought it
I depend on me, I depend on me

All the women who are independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honey's who makin' money
Throw your hands up at me

All the mommas who profit dollas
Throw your hands up at me
All the ladies who truly feel me
Throw your hands up at me

Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?
Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?

Destiny's Child, wassup?
You in the house? Sure 'nuff
We'll break these people off Angel style

Child of Destiny
Independent beauty
No one else can scare me
Charlie's Angels

All the women who are independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honey's who makin' money
Throw your hands up at me

All the mommas who profit dollas
Throw your hands up at me
All the ladies who truly feel me

You thought that I'd be stressed without you, but I'm chillin'

Bootylicious

length: 3:29
writer: Beyoncé, Rob Fusari, Falonte Moore, Stevie Nicks
Kelly, can you handle this?
Michelle, can you handle this?
Beyoncé, can you handle this?
I don't think they can handle this!

Barely move, we've arrived
Lookin' sexy, lookin' fly
Baddest chick, chick inside
DJ, jam tonight
Spotted me a tender thang
There you are, come on baby
Don't you wanna dance with me
Can you handle, handle me

You gotta do much better if you gone dance with me tonight
You gotta work your jelly if you gone dance with me tonight
Read my lips carefully if you like what you see
Move, groove, prove you can hang with me
By the looks I got you shook up and scared of me
Hook up your seat belt, it's time for takeoff

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

Baby, can you handle this?
Baby, can you handle this?
Baby, can you handle this?
I don't think you can handle this!

I'm about to break you off
H-town goin' hard
Lead my hips, slap my thighs
Swing my hair, square my eyes
Lookin' hot, smellin' good
Groovin' like I'm from the hood
Look over my shoulder, I blow you a kiss
Can you handle, handle this

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

Move your body up and down (whoo!)
Make your booty touch the ground (whoo!)
I can't help but wonder why (whoo!)
Is my vibe too vibealacious for you, babe

I shake my jelly at every chance
When I whip with my hips you slip into a trance
I'm hoping you can handle all this jelly that I have
Now let's cut a rug while we scat some jazz

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for yo babe

I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
'Cause my body too bootylicious for you babe

What?
Look
Where?
Hold up don't turn your head. Just slowly turn your head
Oh yes
Oh
Girl
He's definitely fine
That's right

(He's fine) he walks in the club with love in his eyes
As he steps flock, flockin' females by his side
Lookin' scrumptious, even though he ain't tryin'
The finest thang that you ever did see
The sexy creation had his hat tilted to the side
Starin' at me, had my nostrils open wide
Can't even vocalize what I visualize and my body paralyzed
As he smiled at me I said
Hey boy would you enjoy sittin' next to me in your corduroys?
I'm from Texas my girl is from Illinois
Where you from, can I come visit you sometimes?
My oh my you seem like husband material
Caught in your cheerial
Are you married 'cause you're very very extraordinary, kinda scary
I want your name in my vocabulary

Lullaby love
Where have you been all of my life?
Your chocolate covered, strawberry, apple pie a la mode

Lullaby love
Where have you been all of my life?
Your chocolate covered, strawberry, apple pie a la mode

Tell me your dreams and aspirations
What's your future plans?
What's your motivations?
Boy I'm lovin' how you so unpredictable, but I'm feelin' you
Guess I got the gift with you
Admirin', you might check again
As I step say a prayer
You available? So sensual
Lullaby love heartbreakable, so special, baby makeable

Lullaby love
Where have you been all of my life?
Your chocolate covered, strawberry, apple pie a la mode

Lullaby love
Where have you been all of my life?
Your chocolate covered, strawberry, apple pie a la mode

It's all in the way you look at me (apple pie la mode)
I'm sure I'll enjoy your company (apple pie la mode)
You're turning me on with your modesty (apple pie la mode)
You have such a beautiful personality (apple pie la mode)

Perfect Man

length: 3:42
Oh oh oh oh
Caramel complexion
With the sexiest expression
Curly hair and corn rolls

Very nice physique ?? clothes
He looked at me
I looked at him
He asked me what I was thinking

Because he walked so beautiful
I didn't know what to say to him

He was what I wanted
Exactly what I needed
He was what I fantasized
He was what I dreamed
And it would be so perfect
If him and me would leave
Why couldn't I just tell him my feelings?
We were meant to be

[Chorus]
I spotted him walking in the doorway
Of the restaurant of the other day
When I met that perfect man
I didn't speak when I had the chance
I didn't know exactly what to say
At the restaurant the other day
When I met that perfect man
I didn't speak when I had the chance

Sexy lips, platinum wrists
Ten tips like he gets manicures
I can't resist those eyes of his
Staring at his lips and then his ears

And his voice is hypnotizing
And his hand was tantalizing
I dismissed what I wished
Without me realizing

He was what I wanted
Exactly what I needed
He was what I fantasized
He was what I dreamed

And it would be so perfect
If him and me would leave
Why couldn't I just tell him my feelings?
We were meant to be

[Chorus: x2]

All you ladies listening if you ever have the chance
To run into your definition of that perfect man
Don't be blinded by how fine the man is
And miss the chance that might be your last
Make him understand that he's your perfect man

Na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

[Chorus]

Independent Women, Part II

length: 3:46
writer: Beyoncé, Cory Rooney, Samuel Barnes, Poke
What you think about a girl like me?
Buy my own car and spend my own money
Only ring your celly when I'm feeling lonely
When it's all over please get up and leave
Please don't call me baby
Cause I'll call you
Don't mean to hurt you feelings, got a lot to do
Cause I am my number one priority
No falling in love, no commitment from me

All my independent women
Throw them hands up at me
And all my s**y women
Throw them hands up at me

All my money making women
Throw them hands up at me
All my baller women
Throw them hands up at me

If you feel it
Throw them hands up
Where them hands at?
If you feel it?
Where the ladies?
Where my homegirls?
Where my females?
Where all my women?

How you feel about a girl like this?
Try to control me, boy you'll get dismissed
Do what I want, live how I wanna live
Buy my own diamonds, and pay my own bills

Please don't call me baby
Cause I'll call you
Don't mean to hurt you feelings, got a lot to do
Cause I am my number one priority
No falling in love, no commitment from me

All my independent women
Throw them hands up at me
And all my s**y women
Throw them hands up at me
All my money making women
Throw them hands up at me
All my baller women

Throw them hands up
Where them hands at?

Where the ladies?
Where my homegirls?

Where my females?

How did you feel about this groove I wrote?
Hope you got the message ladies take control
Don't depend on no man to give you what you want
Keep that in mind next time you hear this song

If you're independent
I congratulate you
If you ain't in love
I congratulate you
Do them boys like they used to do you
If you pimp him
I congratulate you

All my independent women
Throw them hands up at me
And all my s**y women
Throw them hands up at me
All my money making women
Throw them hands up at me
All my baller women
Throw them hands up at me

Happy Face

The sunshine was shining
I put on my happy face
I'm living, I'm able,
I'm breathing, I'm grateful
To put on my happy face

Woke up and realized this world's not so bad after all
Looked at it through a child's eyes, and I saw these beautiful
Things that you never think about
Like the ocean, moonlight, stars and clouds
It's amazing how we don't appreciate our blessings
There's plenty of people who don't like me
But since there are more who love me and I love myself
Sometimes, it gets tough, it gets tough
But I can't give up, can't give up
Just take a deep breath, close my eyes
Feel the love and give a smile

My Heart Still Beats

length: 4:09
performer: Beyoncé
You're holding me
I close my eyes
You're whispering
And I start to cry

You feel so good
So beautiful
For as long as you live
Don't let me go

Just hold me
Touch me
Feel me
As long as you love me

Reach for me
And need me
If you could trust me
And teach me

Never let go of me
Because you're half of me
My heart still beats
Looking in the eyes

The eyes of love
I hold your face
And I see the sun
And I taste your kiss

You touch my soul
I'm feeling things
I've never felt before
Just hold me

Touch me
Feel me
As long as you love me
Reach for me

And need me
If you could trust me
And teach me
Never let go of me

Because you're half for me
My heart still beats

I am feeling
What they call pure love
I never know
Feelings like this

Could exist
Inside of me
I'm soaring
Emotions exploding

I don't want to live
Another day if you're
Not here with me
Just hold me

Touch me
Feel me
As long as you love me
Reach for me

And need me
If you could trust me
And teach me
Never let go of me

Because you're half of me
My heart still beats
Because you're half of me,

My heart still beats
My heart still beats

Emotion

length: 3:56
writer: Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb
It's over and done
But the heartache lives on inside
And who's the one you're clinging to
Instead of me tonight?

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you go(GO)
Cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back

Come home to me, darling
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world kiss goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight,goodnight

I'm there at your side,
I'm part of all the things you are
But you've got a part of someone else
You've gotta go find your shining star

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you are
Cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling

Don't you know there's nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you go
I'll cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back

Come home to me, darling
Nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight

Nobody to kiss me
Goodnight, goodnight

Brown Eyes

length: 4:36
Remember the first day when I saw your face
Remember the first day when you smiled at me
You stepped to me and then you said to me
I was the woman you dreamed about
Remember the first day when you called my house
Remember the first day when you took me out
We had butterflies, although we tried to hide it
And we both had a beautiful night

The way we held each others hand
The way we talked, the way we laughed
It felt so good to find true love
I knew right then and there you were the one

I know that he loves me 'cause he told me so
I know that he loves me 'cause his feelings show
And when he stares at me
You see he cares for me
You see how he is so deep in love
I know that he loves me 'cause it's obvious
I know that he loves me 'cause it's me he trusts
And he's missin' me if he's not kissin' me
And when he looks at me, his brown eyes tell his soul

Remember the first day, the first day we kissed
Remember the first day we had an argument
We apologized, and then we compromised
And we haven't argued since
Remember the first day we stopped playing games
Remember the first day you fell in love with me
It felt so good for you to say those words
'Cause I felt the same way too

The way we held each others hands
The way we talked, the way we laughed
It felt so good to fall in love
And I knew right then and there you were the one

I know that he loves me 'cause he told me so
I know that he loves me 'cause his feelings show
And when he stares at me
You see he cares for me
You see how he is so deep in love
I know that he loves me 'cause it's obvious
I know that he loves me 'cause it's me he trusts
And he's missin' me if he's not kissin' me
And when he looks at me, his brown eyes tell his soul

I'm so happy, so happy that you're in my life and baby
Now that you're a part of me you've shown me
Shown me the true meaning of love (the true meaning of love)
And I know he loves me

I know that he loves me 'cause he told me so
I know that he loves me 'cause his feelings show
And when he stares at me
You see he cares for me
You see how he is so deep in love
I know that he loves me 'cause it's obvious
I know that he loves me 'cause it's me he trusts
And he's missin' me if he's not kissin' me
And when he looks at me, his brown eyes tell his soul

He looks at me and his brown eyes tell it so

Dangerously in Love

length: 5:07
I love you, I love you, I love you

Baby, I love you, you are my life
My happiest moments weren't complete
If you weren't by my side
You're my relation in connection to the sun
With you next to me there's no darkness
I can't overcome
You are my raindrops, I am the seed
With you and God who's the sunlight
I bloom and grow so beautifully
Baby, I'm so proud, proud to be your girl
You make the confusion go all away
From this cold and mixed up world

I am in love with you
You set me free
I can't do this thing called life
Without you here with me
'Cause I'm dangerously in love with you
I'll never leave
Just keep lovin' me the way I love you loving me
'Cause I am in love with you
You set me free
I can't do this thing called life
Without you here with me
'Cause I'm dangerously in love with you
I'll never leave
Just keep lovin' me the way I love you loving me

And I know you love me, love me for who I am
'Cause years before I became who I am
Baby, you were my man
I know it ain't easy, easy loving me
I appreciate the love and dedication from you to me
Later on in my destiny I see myself having your child
I see myself being your wife
And I see my whole future in your eyes
Thought of all my love for you
Sometimes make me want to cry
Realize all my blessings
I'm grateful to have you by my side

I am in love with you
You set me free
I can't do this thing called life
Without you here with me
'Cause I'm dangerously in love with you
I'll never leave
Just keep lovin' me the way I love you loving me
'Cause I am in love with you
You set me free
I can't do this thing called life
Without you here with me
'Cause I'm dangerously in love with you
I'll never leave
Just keep lovin' me the way I love you loving me

Every time I see your face my heart smiles
Every time it feels so good it hurts sometimes
Created in this world to love, to hold, to feel
To breathe, to love you

Dangerously in love

I am in love with you
You set me free
I can't do this thing called life
Without you here with me
'Cause I'm dangerously in love with you
I'll never leave
Just keep lovin' me the way I love you loving me
'Cause I am in love with you
You set me free
I can't do this thing called life
Without you here with me
'Cause I'm dangerously in love with you
I'll never leave
Just keep lovin' me the way I love you loving me

The Story of Beauty

length: 3:32
writer: Beyoncé, Ken Fambro
Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

It was a Saturday
This cold afternoon
Inside this house there lived
A frightened young girl
She didn't know what she should do
'Cause she missed her mother so
She was left home all alone
With her step father

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

He touched her places
That he shouldn't have touched
He did some things to her
That he shouldn't have done
So she ran into her room
Paged her mother 9 1 1
And the tragedy began
For this young girl

She told her mother
Her family, and friends
No one believed her
'Cause before this happened
She was filled with hate and anger
Towards her step father
'Cause he took her mother
From her when they married

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

She looked for her father
In the men that she saw
Thought that all she had to offer
Was her body
No one to figure out why
This young girl would live her life
In such pain and unhappiness
'Cause she was so beautiful

She rebelled and one day
The young girl fell in love
With another man like her stepdad
He abused her emotionally
And made her feel like she was worthless
Hope one day she realize
And see the beauty in her eyes
All she needs is prayer and strength
She's beautiful

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

Don't hold your head down low
You've got so much, so much
So much, so much, so much to be proud of
You can still live your life
I promise you you'll survive
Girl I love you
You're beautiful

You are my best friend

Gotten me through places I have been
You are my best friend
Through our situations
You have been my inspiration
My best friend
Your still here and I love you

I think you got angel wings
Hiding up under there somewhere
Michelle, my belle
Dunno where we would be
If we never met you girl
I love you, I thank you
You such a blessing
I am so grateful
I truly believe the Lord
Sent you to me and Kelly
The smile the laughter
Always makes me happy
When I am too serious
Or too intense
With a voice that beautiful
You was heaven sent

My sister my life couldn't be better
Doing what I love with my best friend
And making Cheddar Kelly
The most beautifulest girl in the world
You are my survivor and I admire you
You have no idea how special you are
Humble, talented and blessed you are
Sometimes I wish I could be more like you
Sometimes they don't wanna give your credit to you
Wouldn't be a Destiny's Child if it wasn't for you
DC 3 forever I'm thanking you

Lord thank you for your vision
That we see down here on earth
Thank you for your precious gifts
Your sweet precious gift of love
Through everything can no one come between
Us three

Michelle, ah
Ain't it funny
God always know what he is doing
And he showed me some of that when you came
Into me and be in his life
And just let us know that we can count on you
And actually stay with a relaxed heart
Together we are sisters
Your smile has so much meaning so much life
You are the perfect fit
What more could we ask for
We got Michelle
Your voice is like water
Your voice is like rain
And the world ain't ready for you
I love you and I will always be here for you

Beyonce, we have come so far together
And it feels so good to have traveled
Half the road of life with an angel
Walking and learning and teaching you the whole time
God is so awesome
And I thank him for answering my prayers as a child
I never told you this, but I prayed for
A lifelong friend as a child
And God just has his way of sending precious treasures
And I found mine
Everyday our relationship gets stronger
And I love you for the loyal, unselfish
Generous, gifted, wise and beautiful
Person you are
No one absolutely no one can take that away from us
You are the definition of a true friend

B and Kelly you two mean so much to me
Only God knew that this union was meant to be
Only God knew all the things we couldn't see
But if we pray together
We'll stay together

Beyoncé and Kelly
You both exemplify coming from my eyes
What love is
Love is patient Beyoncé that's what you've been
Love is kind Miss Kelly, that's what you have shown
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud
It is not rude It is not self seeking
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes
Always perseveres
First Corinthians 13, four through seven
