Beyonce - Green Light Lyrics




Give it to mama
Give it give it
Give it to mama mama (oh)
Give it
Give it to mama mama

For some strange reason (huh)
You done pleasing me like it's OK (Oh oh oh)
Like a perm that's been left too long
It's like a burn
The result is it just won't take (Oh oh oh)
I can see
Now it's all coming so clear to me now
I can see
Misinterpreted all of my naiveness
Was just thinking if I had no you
Than I can't do
My stock just went up over 2 million

So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (want to, want to) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
Give it to mama

Go go go go
Go go go go
Go go go go
Go go RED LIGHT (ah) GREEN LIGHT!

Some sillies say I should be trophied
Cause it gets no stronger (Oh oh oh)
Ladies you all know (yea girl you all know)
This pimp ish gets no older
Is that a threat (what's another threat)
Yep! (that's another threat)
I'm immune, you can't get colder
You got the green light (whoa)
You're the king, right? (whoa)
You holding up traffic
Green means go!!

Go go go go
Go go go go
Go go go go
Go go RED LIGHT (I said you're holding up traffic green means go!!) GREEN LIGHT!

So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (you got the green light babe!) (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (go!) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (ooh!) (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (want to, want to) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
Give it to mama

[Sung over go's]
Oh no problem you can go
I'm gonna' find somebody else
It's alright I'll move along
You want a green light...so you can...GO!! (go, go, go)

Go go go go
Go go go go
Go go go go
Go go RED LIGHT (ah) GREEN LIGHT!

I gave all I could give
My love, my heart (my heart)
Now we're facing the end (the end) of what you did from the start
My love

[Instrument Solo]

(You're holding up traffic, GREEN MEANS GO!!)

So if you want to (WHOA oh oh!) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (WHOA oh oh!) (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (WHOA oh!) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (WHOA oh oh!) (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (Go!) (want to, want to) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (Go go go go!) (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
Give it to mama

[Sung over go's]
Oh no problem you can go
I'll go find somebody else
It's alright I'll move along
You want a green light...so you can...GO!! (go, go, go)

Go go go go
Go go go go
Go go go go
Go go RED LIGHT (ah) GREEN LIGHT!

  24. Ron Miller

    Literally invented traffic lights!

  25. Vincent maduka

    Tyra banks is that you?

  26. Otávio Nunes Dias

    Is the chorus a sample from 1 Thing by Amerie?

    Sans Nom

    She copied her whole style. She sabotaged her career and stole her producers.

    MrsB055

    @Sans Nom No she did not. 🙄🙄🙄

    Sans Nom

    @MrsB055 yes she did. She also ruined Keri Hilson career. She also is a copycat. That woman is evil. From destiny child to present day.

    MrsB055

    @Sans Nom Wrong and wrong again. Beyoncé never said nor spoke on Keri Hilson even though Keri dissed her(AND Ciara)and talked shit about her on the radio(for a reason still unknown) and Keri went on to have more hits after all that(Pretty Girl Rock,etc), but she fell off like many 00s stars in this decade. As for Amerie, Beyoncé didn't "steal" anything from her. Rich Harrison willingly produced a total of 4 songs for Beyoncé(as well as for folks like Usher), across 2 separate albums, 3 of those were album cuts, one of those was Crazy in Love. That was a hit that she then followed up with 3 more hits produced by Scott Storch. Did she "steal" Scott Storch?? All this lying ya'll keep doing when you could be supporting Amerie. She released 2 EPs last year did you buy them?? I did. Do you support her books and Youtube channel?? Or do you spend your time under the videos of someone you "don't like" like a fan giving them views and clicks??

  27. Saraya N.

    Who's got this wig?

  28. LETICIA MARQUES

    this look of the diva is fantastic and she is wonderful

  29. GIULIO MUCCIACITO

    Buon lunedì pomeriggio Lara Soccio qui Beyoncé con un vestito a strisce mi fa venire in mente te

  30. GardenofRoses

    This is her best video

  31. Gamecube Grant

    I miss when she sang

  32. Thando Joka

    Beyonce does a lot of Gay sh!t because her choreographers and people around her be gay. That is why when home girl came to the scene; she fulfilled fantasies in every way possible. The concept of “Beyonce” (the moves, hair, clothes, dances, confidence etc), all of this existed long before in the Black gay community. She, with her team brought it to the public in a way only Beyonce could do it. So when you hear things like the “gay agenda”, do not be alarmed or quick to defend. it is kind of true in a sense, if you think about it using reason. However, it does not mean it is wrong.

  33. GoodOlAllisonHarvard

    Remember when those shoes @3:20 were all the craze by female pop-stars and celebrities thanks to people like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga? 😝🙈🙌🏾👠✨ #ICONIQUE

  34. Matthieu

    It sounds pretty similar ewww

    I mean it's like "One thing by Amerie" or maybe that's just me 🤣

    Ben Grantham

    Just you boo

    Sans Nom

    She stole her style and producers so yes its true

  35. steamyboy69

    One of Beyonce’s songs that I dont mind hearing over and over. Her Dangerously in Love and B’Day and 4 albums were superb! She gone weird in albums that came after LOL.

  36. Whitney Houston

    2:01 - 2:18 slaps so hard

  37. Vando Varela

    I am fan even before that bday era, and i crazy when i look and bey now and then, she went from a singer to a diva, we sow how a diva is made, we should celebrate that.

  38. Brian Perone

    This is a song that I didn’t appreciate and totally understand back when I was 14 when I jammed out to bday... 13 years later it’s my fav on the album. Such an underrated classic and top 10 for Bey

  39. Phillip Key

  47. somto ofoma

    This was beyonce's producer's attempt to mimmick the sound of amerie's 1 thing, following its success!

    MrFirefire1

    somto ofoma you’re joking right. This was produced by the Neptunes who were known for that sound before One Thing you fool

    Sans Nom

    Yes, exactly what happened. Evil B is a notorious copycat.

  48. Gianna Gordon

  70. goku360100

    I'd have to see her without makeup at that age where she was in her prime, but with makeup she was the most beautiful woman on the entire planet. I remember when I was a kid and she was the woman I would've wanted to marry the most because she looked like absolute perfection. Jay Z even being rich as hell as he is is a lucky ass man.

  80. Dante Goodman

    Wooooow

  81. Aku The Shapeshifter

    my 1st time ever seeing the video🤦🏾‍♂️

  82. gotta love summer

    I never used to understand what this song about when I was little and listened to this on our CD player. It’s a bop though.

  83. mg19cal

    All I see is half a ripoff of "1 Thing" by Amerie, which obviously was out before this

    gotta love summer

    mg19cal LMAO SO TRUE

    mg19cal

    @gotta love summer as long America gets to cash big royalty checks on the regular, I'm ok with that 😁

  84. mg19cal

    This video has just as much in common with "Simply Irresistible" as it does with "Addicted To Love." But folks don't want to admit it

    mg19cal

    @Jaken Lich12 as a 80s kid, it was the first thing I noticed when I saw this vid

  85. Adriana Pena

    Robert palmer vibes. Great video.

  86. Omer Berk

    Heavily influenced by Amerie 1 thing XDXDXD

    I Love Chicago

    Omer Berk yess the video

  87. Thayson Victor

    essa música é tão estranha, mas eu adoro kkkk

  88. Crepuscular Creates

    They try to compare Amerie to Beyoncé like she stole from her. Y’all stay coming for her..

  89. Seth Brolsma

    1:46 best moment of any Beyonce video

  90. ayee rogers

    I’m BEYHIVE BEYHIVE literally know every thing about her / song / performance , etc. but I can not get into this song or sugar mama 🤷🏽‍♂️

  91. Venus Pollard

    I wonder if she made this song as a response or prelude to Jimi Hendrix's "Cross Town Traffic?" The road metaphors in both songs do match pretty well!

  92. Joshua H

    I'm sorry but, Beyonce really just stole Amerie whole style! Smh!! She released this video after 1 thing, to try to taunt her!

    XY XCVI

    Aamerie stole from Beyoncé actually. Beyoncé made the gogo sound mainstream in the 2000. She started with crazy in love.

    I Love Chicago

    They both had the same producer and he sold his produced tracks to not only Amerie, but to Beyoncé, Mary, usher and j-lo, etc ....go look him up. His name is rich Harrison. However Pharrell produced this track. I will say this video similar to 1 thing video but that’s it.

  93. Toni Kea

    you got the green light, you the king right ?? *mood*

  94. Erin Wheeler

    This was Beyoncés first visual album. B’day was an ERA.
