Beyonce - B'Day Lyrics






Déjà Vu

[ Featuring Jay-Z ]

[Intro:]
[Beyonce:] Bass
[Jay-Z:] Uh
[Beyonce:] Hi hat
[Jay-Z:] Uh
[Beyonce:] 808
[Jay-Z:] Uh
[Beyonce:] Jay
[Jay-Z:] Uh-huh
Ready?
Uh-huh
[Beyonce:] Let's go get 'em
[Jay-Z:] Uh-huh
C'mon

[Jay-Z Rap]
I used to run base like Juan Pierre
Now I run the bass hi hat and the snare
I used to bag girls like Birkin Bags
Now I bag B ([Beyonce:] Boy you hurtin' that)
Brooklyn Bay where they birthed me at
Now I be everywhere, the nerve of rap
The audacity to have me whipping curtains back
Me and B, she about to sting
Stand back


[Verse 1]
Baby seems like everywhere I go
I see you, from your eyes, your smile
It's like I breathe you, helplessly I reminisce
Don't want to compare nobody to you

[Pre-Hook]
Boy, I try to catch myself
But I'm out of control
Your sexiness is so appealing
I can't let it go
Oh

[Hook]
Know that I can't get over you
'Cause everything I see is you
And I don't want no substitute
Baby I swear it's Deja Vu
Know that I can't get over you
'Cause everything I see is you
And I don't want no substitute
Baby I swear it's Deja Vu

[Verse 2]
Seeing things that I know can't be
Am I dreaming? When I saw you walking past me
Almost called your name
Got a better glimpse and then I looked away
It's like I'm losing it

[Pre-hook]
Boy, I try to catch myself
But I'm out of control
Your sexiness is so appealing
I can't let it go, oh

[Hook]
Know that I can't get over you
'Cause everything I see is you
And I don't want no substitute
Baby I swear it's Deja Vu
Know that I can't get over you
'Cause everything I see is you
And I don't want no substitute
Baby I swear it's Deja Vu

[Jay-Z Rap 2]
Yes! Hova's flow so unusual
Baby, girl you should already know
It's H-O, light up the dro'
'Cause you gon' need help tryna study my bounce, flow, blow
What's the difference?
One, you take in vein while the other you sniffin'
It's still dough, po-po try to convict him
That's a no-go
My dough keep the scales tipping like 4-4's
Like I'm from the H-O-U-S-T-O-N
Blow, wind so Chicago of him
Is he the best ever, that's the argu-a-ment
I don't make the list, don't be mad at me
I just make the hits, like a factory
I'm just one-to-one, nothin' after me
No Deja Vu, just me and my, Oh


[Bridge]
Baby I can't go anywhere
Without thinking that you're there
Seems like you're everywhere, it's true
Gotta be having Deja Vu
'Cause in my mind I want you here
Get on the next plane, I don't care
Is it because I'm missing you
That I'm having Deja Vu

[Pre-hook]
Boy, I try to catch myself
But I'm out of control
Your sexiness is so appealing
I can't let it go
Whoo...

[Hook]
Know that I can't get over you
'Cause everything I see is you
And I don't want no substitute
Baby I swear it's Deja Vu
Know that I can't get over you
'Cause everything I see is you
And I don't want no substitute
Baby I swear it's Deja Vu

Know that I can't get over you
'Cause everything I see is you
And I don't want no substitute
Baby I swear it's Deja Vu
Know that I can't get over you
'Cause everything I see is you
And I don't want no substitute
Baby I swear it's Deja Vu

Upgrade U

Yeah B
Talk yo' shit
(Partner let me upgrade you)
How you gon' upgrade me what's higher than number one?
You know I used to beat that block
Now I be's the block (partner let me upgrade you)

I hear you be the block, but I'm the lights that keep the streets on
Notice you the type, that like to keep them on a leash though
I'm known to walk alone, but I'm alone for a reason
Sending me a drink ain't appeasing, believe me
Come harder, this won't be easy
Don't doubt yourself trust me, you need me
This ain't no shoulder with a chip, or an ego
But what you think they all mad at me for?

You need a real woman in your life (that's a good look)
Taking care, home and still fly (that's a good look)
And I'ma help you build up your account (that's a good look)
Better yet a hood look, believe me (ladies that's a good look)
When you're in them big meetings, for the mills (that's a good look)
You take me just to complement the deals (that's a good look)
And anything you cop, I'll split the bill (that's a good look)
Better yet a hood look, believe me (ladies that's a good look)

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars-Piguet you
Switch your neck ties to purple labels
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I? (Up), lett me (up) grade you
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page
Introduce you to some new things, and upgrade you
I can (up), can I? (Up), let me, upgrade you?
Partner, let me upgrade you

I can do for you, what Martin did for the people
Ran by the men, but the women keep the tempo
It's very seldom, that you're blessed to find your equal
Still played my part and let you take the lead role, believe me

I'll follow, this could be easy
I'll be the help, whenever you need me (you need me)
I see your hustle with my hustle, I can keep you
Focused on your focus, I can feed you

You need a real woman in your life (that's a good look)
Taking care, home and still fly (that's a good look)
I can help you build up your account (that's a good look)
Better yet a hood look, believe me (ladies that's a good look)
When you're in the big meetings, for the mills (that's a good look)
You take me just to complement the deals (that's a good look)
Anything you cop, I'll split the bill (that's a good look)
Better yet a hood look, believe me I can upgrade you (ladies that's a good look)

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars-Piguet you
Switch your neckties to purple labels (have you rocking purple labels)
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I? (Up), let me (up) grade you
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page
Introduce you to some new things, and (uh) Upgrade (HOV) You
I can (up), (uh), can I? (Up), let me, (HOV), upgrade you
Partner, let me upgrade you

Uh huh, I be's the d-boy, who infiltrated all the corporate dudes
They call shots, I call audibles
Jacob the Jeweler, baubles, Lauraine Schwartz, oughta do
It's big balling baby, when I'm courting you
I'm talking spy bags, and fly pads, and
Rooms at the Bloomberg, and rumors you on the verge
Of a new merge, 'cause that rock on ya finger'ss like a tumor
You can't fit ya hand in ya new purse
It's humorous, to me they watching and we just yachting
Island hopping off the Amalfi coast
Mafios, oh baby, you ever seen Saturn?
No, not the car, but everywhere we are
You're sure to see stars, this is high level not eye level
My bezel, courtesy of Audemars
I order yours tomorrow, now look at the time I saved you
Mama, let me upgrade you

Just when you think we had it all
Big ends, condos, collecting cars
Picture your life elevating with me
Make you my project celebrity I keep your name hot in them streets
And it's that little glimpse of light that makes that diamond really shine
And you already is a star, but
Unless you're flawless
Then ya dynasty ain't complete without a chief, like me

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars Piguet you
Switch your neckties to purple labels
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I? (Up) let me upgrade you
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page
Introduce you to some new things, and upgrade you
I can (up), can I? (Up), let me, upgrade you
Partner, let me upgrade you, upgrade you

Audemars Piguet watch, dimples in ya necktie
Hermès briefcase, Cartier tie clips
Silk-lined blazers, diamond creamed facials
Vvs cuff-links, six-star pent suites
Partner, let me, upgrade ya, 'grade ya
Partner, partner, let me, upgrade you, 'grade you
Let me, let me, let me, upgrade you, 'grade you
Partner, partner, partner, let me upgrade you

Ring The Alarm

[HOOK:]
Ring the alarm
I been through this too long
But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm
Won't you ring the alarm
I been through this too long
But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm

[CHORUS:]
She gon' be rockin' chinchilla coats
If I let you go
Get in the house off the coast
If I let you go
She gon' take everything I own
If I let you go
I can't let you go, damn if I let you go

She gon' rock them VVS stones
If I let you go
Couped in the 'Bach or the Rolls
If I let you go
She gon' profit everything I taught
If I let you go
I can't let you go, damn if I let you go

[VERSE 1:]
Tell me how should I feel
When I know what I know
And my female intuition tellin me you a dog
People told me 'bout the flames
I couldn't see through the smoke
When I need answers, accusations
What you mean you gon choke
Oh

[PRE-CHORUS 1:]
You can't stay, you gotta go
Ain't no other chick spendin' your dough
This is taking a toll, the way the story unfolds
Not the picture perfect movie everyone would've saw...

[CHORUS:]
She gon' be rockin' chinchilla coats
If I let you go
Get in the house off the coast
If I let you go
She gon' take everything I own
If I let you go
I can't let you go, damn if I let you go

She gon' rock them VVS stones
If I let you go
Couped in the 'Bach or the Rolls
If I let you go
She gon' profit everything I taught
If I let you go
I can't let you go, damn if I let you go

[HOOK:]
Ring the alarm
I been through this too long
But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm
Won't you ring the alarm
I been through this too long
But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm

[VERSE 2:]
Tell me how should I feel
When you made me belong
And the thought of you just touchin' her
Is what I hate most
I don't want you, but I want it
And I can't let it go
To know you give it to her like you gave it to me, come on
Oh

[PRE-CHORUS 2:]
He's so arrogant and bold (Oh)
But she gon' love that shit, I know
I done put in a call, time to ring the alarm
'Cause you ain't never seen a fire like the one I'm a cause...

[CHORUS:]
She gon' be rockin' chinchilla coats
If I let you go
Get in the house off the coast
If I let you go
She gon' take everything I own
If I let you go
I can't let you go, damn if I let you go

She gon' rock them VVS stones
If I let you go
Couped in the 'Bach or the Rolls
If I let you go
She gon' profit everything I taught
If I let you go
I can't let you go, damn if I let you go

[BRIDGE:]
(Ooh)
How can you look at me
And not see all the things
That I kept only just for you
(Ooh)
Why would you risk it babe
Is that the price that I pay
(Oooh)
But this is my show, and I won't let you go
All it's been paid for, and it's mine
How could you look at me
And not see all the things
(See all the things)

[CHORUS:]
She gon' be rockin' chinchilla coats
If I let you go
Get in the house off the coast
If I let you go
She gon' take everything I own
If I let you go
I can't let you go, damn if I let you go

She gon' rock them VVS stones
If I let you go
Couped in the 'Bach or the Rolls
If I let you go
She gon' profit everything I taught
If I let you go
I can't let you go, damn if I let you go

Kitty Kat

You know I hate sleeping alone
But you said that you would soon be home
But baby, that was a long time ago

I'm not feeling it, I'm not feelin' it
On top of you not callin' me back
You see, I bet you think it's all on track
And you actin' like it's all o' that
I'm not feelin' it, I'm not feelin' it

Let's go, let's go little kitty cat
I think its time to go, let's go little kitty cat
He don't want no mo', let's go little kitty cat
Quite frankly no more givin' it
I'm not feelin' it

It's like we at two places, but different paces
We in trouble but you won't meet me at the bridge
It hurts, it feels deserted
Did you forget where your heart lives?

What about my body, body?
You don't want my body, body?
Acting like I'm not nobody
You gon' make me call somebody
What about my body, body?
What about my body, body?
You would rather go and party
Somehow somewhere I'll be naughty

You know I hate sleeping alone
But you said that you would soon be home
But baby, that was a long time ago

I'm not feeling it, I'm not feelin' it
On top of you not callin' me back
You see, I bet you think it's all on track
And you actin' like it's all o' that
I'm not feelin' it, I'm not feelin' it

Let's go, let's go little kitty cat
I think it's time to go, let's go little kitty cat
He don't want no mo', let's go little kitty cat
Quite frankly it let me show you how to get there (no more givin'I'm not feelin' it)

Take a left to compassion (lights will be flashin')
Keep straight and you'll see the sun right there
Affection (you're in the wrong direction)
If I get caught, see, it just seems that you don't care

What about my body, body?
You don't want my body, body
Acting like I'm not nobody
You gon' make me call somebody
What about my body, body?
What about my body, body?
You would rather go and party
Somehow, somewhere I'll be naughty

You know I hate sleeping alone
But you said that you would soon be home
But baby, that was a long time ago

I'm not feeling it, I'm not feelin' it
On top of you not callin' me back
You see, I bet you think it's all on track
And you actin' like it's all o' that
I'm not feelin' it, I'm not feelin' it

Let's go, let's go little kitty cat
I think it's time to go, let's go little kitty cat
He don't want no mo', let's go little kitty cat
Quite frankly no more givin' it
I'm not feelin' it

I'm taking back the things I got from you, you
And that includes my sweet little nooky too, too
Let's go, let's go, let's go little kitty cat (kitty cat)
He don't want you anymore, no
Let's go

Let's go, let's go little kitty cat (kitty cat)
He don't want you anymore, no

Got diamonds on my neck, got diamonds on my records
Since sixteen I was coming down ridin' Lexus'
How you gon' neglect this? You is just a hot mess
You can call Tyrone, you ain't gots to lie Craig

What about my body, body?
What about by my body, body?
I'm in the house all alone, you rather go and party?
What about my body, body?
You don't want my body, body?
Acting like I'm nobody
You gon' make me call somebody

Let's go, let's go little kitty cat
I think it's time to go
Let's go, little kitty cat
He ain't want no mo'
Let's go little kitty cat
No mo getting' it, I'm not feelin' it

Irreplaceable

(feat. Trina)

[Beyonce:]
You must not kno bout me
You must not kno bout me

[Trina:]
Ughh taxi come pick this nigga up; a used condom in his truck
Used to trick it with tha sluts; tellin me I'm number 1
But u was better than tha rest; truth be told u'z a mess
Who loved tha playin games; rollercoaster with my brain
I'd cry myself to sleep cause it hurt so bad
I'm askin how could u expose everythin we had
Now I gotta go inside the little black bag
I bet he'll be back tryna wave tha white flag
Nigga-nerve of u sayin I wouldnt find another
U don't bump yo head, u gon need me sucka
Changin my number; I ain't thinkin bout you
I'm in love with myself; if u wanna kno tha truth

[Beyonce:]
In tha closet... that's my stuff
Yes, if I bought it babii please don't touch
And keep talking that mess, that's fine
But could you walk and talk at the same time
And It's my mine name that is on that Jag
So remove your bags let me call you a cab

Standing in the front yard telling me
How I'm such a fool - Talking about
How I'll never ever find a man like you
You got me twisted

You must not know bout me
You must not know bout me

[Beyonce & Trina:]
I could have another you in a minute
Matter fact he'll be here in a minute babii

[Trina:]
Keep talkin slick...
Ones a killa; ones a drug deala
One who wines *&* dines me with million dollar even tho rap it to equality
I even kno a rapper who wanna dig in it
Or my football playa friend whose been beggin me to end it
My attorney on Brickle with a big popsicle
Who ain't neva had a hard time aimin at tha middle
MY NBA All Star who make it with a sizzle
That's tha shizzle my nizzle; he think his time when he nibble
Don't make me remind u; to tha left, to tha left

[Beyonce:]
Everythin u own in tha box to tha left
In tha closet... that's my stuff
Yes, if I bought it babii please don't touch
And keep talkin that mess, that's fine
But could u walk and talk at tha same time
And It's my mine name that is on that Jag
So remove your bags let me call you a cab

Standing in tha front yard tellin me
How I'm such a fool - Talkin bout
How I'll never ever find a man like you
You got me twisted

You must not kno bout me
You must not kno bout me

I could have another you in a minute
Matter fact he'll be here in a minute babii

You must not kno bout me
You must not kno bout me

I could have another u by tomorrow
So, don't u ever for a second get to thinkin; u're irreplaceable

So, go ahead and get gone
Call up that chick *&* see if she's home
Oops, I bet ya thought that I didn't kno
What did u think I was putting u out for?
Cause u was untrue
Rolling her around in tha car that I bought u
Baby u dropped them keys; hurry up before your taxi leaves
Standing in tha front yard telling me
How I am such a fool - Talking about
How I'll never ever find a man like u
You got me twisted

You must not kno bout me
You must not kno bout me

I could have another u in a minute
Matter fact he'll be here in a minute babii

You must not kno bout me
You must not kno bout me

I could have another u by tomorrow
So, don't u ever for a second get to thinkin; u're irreplaceable

So since I'm not your everything
How about I'll be nothing
Nothing at all to u
Baby I won't shead a tear for u
I won't lose a wink of sleep
Cause tha truth of tha matter is
Replacing u is so easy

To tha left, to tha left
To tha left, to tha left
To tha left, to tha left; everythin u own in a box to tha left
To tha left, to tha left;
Don't u ever for a second get to thinkin; u're irreplaceable

You must not kno bout me
You must not kno bout me

I could have another u in a minute
Matter fact he'll be be here in a minute - babii

You must not know about me
You must not know about me
I can have another u by tomorrow
Don't you ever for a second get to thinkinnnnnn...

You must not kno bout me
You must not kno bout me

I could have another u in a minute
Matter fact he'll be be here in a minute

You can pack all your bagsss
We're finished
You made your bed; now lay in it

I could have another u by tomorrow
So, don't u ever for a second get to thinkin; u're irreplaceableeee

Resentment

[Verse 1:]
I wish I could believe you then I'll be alright
But now everything you told me really don't apply
To the way I feel inside
Loving you was easy once upon a time
But now my suspicions of you have multiplied
And it's all because you lied

[Chorus:]
I only give you a hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I haven't tried to forget this
But I'm much too full of resentment

[Verse 2:]
Just can't seem to get over the way you hurt me
Don't know how you gave another who didn't mean a thing, no
The very thing you gave to me
I thought I could forgive you and I know you've changed
As much as I wanna trust you I know it ain't the same
And it's all because you lied

[Chorus:]
I only give you a hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I haven't tried to forgvie this
But I'm much too full of resentment

I may never understand why
I'm doing the best that I can and I
I tried and I tried to forgive this
I'm much too full of resentment

I'll always remember feeling like I was no good
Like I couldn't do it for you like your mistress could
And it's all because you lied

[Bridge:]
Loved you more than ever
More than my own life
The best part of me I gave you
It was sacrificed
And it's all because you lied

[Chorus:]
I only give you a hard time
'Cause I can't go on and pretend like
I tried and I tried to forgive this
But I'm too damn full of resentment

I know she was attractive but I was here first
Been ridin' with you for six years why did I deserve
To be treated this way by you, you
I know your probably thinking what's up with Bee
I been crying for too long what did you do to me
I used to be so strong but now you took my soul
I'm crying can't stop crying can't stop crying
You could of told me that you wasn't happy
I know you didn't wanna hurt me
But look what you done-done to me now
I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's had half of me
How could you lie?

Listen

Listen,
To the song here in my heart
A melody I start
But can't complete

Listen, to the sound from deep within
It's only beginning
To find release

Oh,
The time has come
For my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own
All cause you won't
Listen...

[Chorus:]
Listen,
I am alone at a crossroads
I'm not at home, in my own home
And I've tried and tried
To say what's on my mind
You should have known
Oh,
Now I'm done believin you
You don't know what I'm feelin
I'm more than what, you made of me
I followed the voice
You gave to me
But now I gotta find, my own...

You should have listened
There is someone here inside
Someone I'd thought had died
Sooo long ago

Ohh I'm screaming out for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside or worse
Into your own
All cause you won't
Listen...

[Chorus]

I don't know where I belong
But I'll be movin on
If you don't...
If you won't...

LISTEN!...
To the song here in my heart
A melody I've start
But I will complete

Oh,
Now I'm done believin you
You don't know what I'm feelin
I'm more than what, you made of me
I followed the voice, you think you gave to me
But now I gotta find, my own...
My own...

B'Day is the second studio album by American singer Beyoncé. Originally set to be released in 2004, B'Day was planned as a follow-up to Beyoncé's solo debut Dangerously in Love (2003); however, it was delayed to accommodate the recording of Destiny's Child's final studio album Destiny Fulfilled (2004) and Beyoncé's starring role in the 2006 film Dreamgirls.

While on vacation after filming Dreamgirls, Beyoncé began contacting various producers and rented Sony Music Studios, completing the album within two weeks. Most of the lyrical content of the album was inspired by Beyoncé's role in the film, with its musical style ranging from 1970s-1980s funk influences and balladry to urban contemporary elements such as hip hop and R&B.

Live instrumentation was employed in recording most of the tracks as part of Beyoncé's vision of creating a record using live instruments.

A commercial success, the album debuted atop the US Billboard 200, selling over 541,000 copies in its first week. Among numerous additional accolades, it won Best Contemporary R&B Album at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards (2007). B'Day Anthology Video Album, which featured 13 music videos to accompany the album's tracks, was released alongside the album's Deluxe Edition reissue in April 2007.

B'Day has been certified quintuple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and, as of 2013, has sold over 8 million copies worldwide.

B'Day produced six singles. "Déjà Vu" peaked at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100, while "Ring the Alarm" became Beyoncé's highest-debuting single at the time but broke her string of top-ten singles after peaking at number 11. "Irreplaceable" became her fourth Billboard Hot 100 number-one, while "Beautiful Liar" peaked at number three; both singles achieved widespread international success. "Get Me Bodied" was released exclusively in the United States, while "Green Light" was released internationally; neither replicated the success of their predecessors.

To further promote B'Day, Beyoncé embarked on her second solo concert tour The Beyoncé Experience (2007); a live album titled The Beyoncé Experience Live was also released.
