Beyonce - Before I Let Go Lyrics

(Tay Keith, fuck these niggas up)

You make me happy, this you can bet, yeah
You stood right beside me, yeah, and I won't forget
And I really love you, you should know
I want to make sure I'm right, boy, before I let go, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Now, we had a good time, that we can say
We hurted each other, yeah, and, boy, it's a shame
I won't be foolish, no, I wanna know
I want to make sure I'm right, boy, before I let go, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You know I thank God' sun rises and shines on you
You know there's nothing
Nothing, nothing I would not do, whoa

Before I let you go, woah
I would never, never, never, never
Never, never, never, never
Let you go before I go

I pull up to Coachella (Pull up)
In boots with the goose feathers (Pull up)
I brought the squad with me (Pull up)
Black on black bandanas
Aight, D'USSÉ and champagne (Chins up)
I did the damn thing
Dirty Diana, singin' and dancing all in the rain

Ooh (To the left)
I just wanna have a good time (Turn around)
Turn around, dip then slide
And twirl that ass to the right now

Bunny hop, bunny hop, drop, pop
Cross your legs, turn around and clap
And shuffle to the left, let's glide now

Drop it down, drop it down low, low
Low, low, low to the floor
Bring it up, clap, then roll

Step on 'em, step on 'em, step on 'em, step
Step on 'em, kick on 'em, stomp and you step
Swag the right, surf the left
Work the middle
'Til it hurt a little

(Before I let)
(Before I let, be- befo- before I let go)
(Before I let)
(Before I let, be- befo- before I let go)

    I have to give it to her for making it as a singer who can't sing.... No range, no tone, no vibrato. What happens when the body is no longer nice to look at?

    Anybody hear the very close copy to "I'll Be Good To You" by the Brothers Johnson during the lyrics. 1976, good year, good grove - glad Beyonce does nothing new here - but great feel! Loved it back in 1976, like that it came back!!

  42. Jnyja Billings
