Kendrick Lamar - Beyonce Lyrics




Man, Beyonce, I'm mad at you, man

[Chorus 1]
They say hello (hey), hello (hey)
I can daydream about Beyonce all day
Thinking bout the good times 'fore she met Jay
See ya know, they say hello (hey), hello (hey)
I really thought I had a chance to be your man
till I seen the video with the ring on your hand
It hurt me so

I remember you were sixteen on the TV screen with Wyclef
Were you my type? Oh God yes, I was impressed
You was like 'No, no, no', I was like twelve years old
Hoping that one day I could chaperone while you're on the road
You wore braids with a banging body
Looked like you did Pilates, a lot of sit-ups probably
But bump that, I was there from the start
Even when LeToya Luckett and that other doo-doo bucket broke your heart
Hope you didn't cry, cause honestly they were just so-so
They couldn't sing anyway, you deserved to go solo
No disrespect to Kelly and Michelle, I'm just saying
They cool, but you? You something like Wonder Woman
And I just want to hold your hand, bring you to Compton
Gonzales Park, we can build castles in the sand
Eating Hot Cheetos with pickle juice in it
Put that napkin down, you know I'll lick your fingers when you're finished

[Chorus 1]

I just bought the Sasha Fierce CD
I gazed at the cover for a whole five minutes till my girlfriend hit me
She's jealous of you B cause I don't love her like I love you
I even make her do the "uh-oh, uh-oh, oh-no-no" just like you do
She tell me I'm obsessed, I tell her we connect
like Ice Cube way before the Mack 10 feud
She like, you goddamn fool, that girl's rich and you're broke
I said, so, I'm five-hundred mill' away, there's still hope
Anyway, I had feelings way before you got paid
And I didn't laugh when you bust your ass on the stage
And I salute Kanye for taking up for you
I would have stole the award just to prove that I love you
But Jay shoulda did that, I thought he had your bizzack
What happened Mr. Izzo? Hopico with Frederico?
He used to be my favorite till he abandoned my diva
Now I tell everybody Nas had killed him on 'Ether'

[Chorus 2]
They say hello (hey), hello (hey)
I can daydream about Beyonce all day
Thinking bout the good times 'fore she met Jay
See ya know, they say hello (hey), hello (hey)
Hopefully I still have a chance
Maybe if I sabotage your man
You never know, hmm

I'ma sneak backstage at a Mary J. Blige concert
with an 'I Love Mary' shirt, then find Jay-Z
and push him into a dancer, hopefully they lock lips
That's when I yell out, Sounwave, hurry up, take the pic
Put it on Bossip the same night, yeah, that sound quite right
Publicity like that? Yep, they'd be sure to fight
Better yet I'ma steal his cell, then call up Affion
He impersonates Jay well, get Beyonce on the line
Then make up some bogus shit
Like you don't the back of my knees right, so this marriage is over with
And the ring that's on my finger, guess what, I'm throwing it (cling)
You heard the sound, so you know I did
Ha-hahhh, that should get him
I should break 'em up like a Kit Kat when I do that, yeah true that
I'ma put the plot in motion, that's for sure
But if I end up with Macy Gray, this plan never worked

Yeeeea, man I hope Jay don't be mad at me bout this song
Start-, ay Wizzle start me back from like the first verse
Like right before I come in
Haha, what you say? Nah, you think it'll be hot for real though?
Nigga, you stupid, they probably laughing as hard as you
Nig' got the best wife in the world and shit
Run that back though?

Kendrick Lamar Beyonce Comments
  1. Jason Smalls

    [Chorus: Kendrick Lamar & Beyoncé]
    One time I took a swim in the Nile
    I swam the whole way, I didn't turn around
    Man, I swear
    It made me relax when I came down
    I felt liberated like free birds, I'm stimulated now
    Plunging away 'less my body's on top
    All of these currents might cost me my life right now
    When danger finds me, it follows with tides
    Many miles ahead of me, still I'm in stride
    She said

    [Verse 1: Beyoncé]
    Hey little buddy, where you goin'?
    I'm not sure of how to know I'm still motion
    You seem regular, I seem regular
    These streams may take me out to the ocean

    [Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
    Told myself if I dive in it without precaution of a lifejacket
    Then I'll dive in it 'til I'm exhausted and I'm type lacking
    Waistline on four deep, senses on four deep
    Feel like there's four of me

    [Chorus: Kendrick Lamar & Beyoncé]
    One time I took a swim in the Nile (One time I took in a swim in the Nile)
    I swam the whole way, I didn't turn around
    Man, I swear (I swear)
    It made me relax when I came down (When I came down)
    I felt liberated like free birds, I'm stimulated now (Stimulated)
    Plunging away 'less my body's on top (Stimulated, stimulated now)
    All of these currents might cost me my life right now (Right now, right now)
    Where danger finds me, it follows with tides (Follows with tides)
    Many miles ahead of me, still I'm in stride
    That's some good


    [Verse 3: Beyoncé]
    Got the Nile runnin' through my body
    Look at my natural, I'm so exotic
    Darker the berry, sweeter the fruit
    Deeper the wounded, deeper the roots
    Nubian doused in brown, I'm lounging in it
    Fountain of Youth, I said I'm drowning in it

    [Refrain: Kendrick Lamar & Beyoncé]
    I'm in the Nile, deep in denial
    I'm in the Nile, deep in denial

    [Outro: Kendrick Lamar]
    That's some good

  2. Agatha Silva

    Poxa qualquer música que a Bey faz com o Kendrick fica perfeita

    Darker the berry, sweeter the fruit
    Deeper the wounded, deeper the roots

    I tend the youth, I said I'm drowning in it
    I'm in denial, deep in denial
    I'm in the Nile, deep in denial
    That's some good

  36. Julie Redmond

    💥💥💥💥

  37. Odile Jones

    People complaining about the length everything about this album is intentional the artists involved, the songs that reflect the movie’s themes etc. I think part of the reason why it’s so short is think about the context it’s just after Simba has fled the kingdom wracked with guilt thinking he had caused his father’s death. He runs for through the savanna for God knows how long he passes out which is how Timon and Pumba find him. He is literally in limbo between life and death. Beyoncé says in the making of the album the song is sort of like your life flashing before your eyes before you die. Ita not a huge long epic moment it’s quick, it’s intense it’s a arguably even a spiritual experience. It’s Simba’s experience as he’s in that place emotionally as well as physically. There’s only so much he can do. On a grander scale the theme of being deep in denial that they cleverly interchange with “the nile” is a temporary pit stop. Like the moment you hear bad news you can only be in denial for so long it will catch up with you. You can try to AVOID thinking about it through multiple means food, sex, alcohol or in Simba’s case adopting the hakuna Matata lifestyle. But you can’t deny reality. It’s actually pretty cleverly done.

    Also Beyoncé and Kendrick work so well together because they both are incredibly deep thinkers. Watch either being interviewed they are not just musicians chasing money or fame they are artists that are trying to speak to the human experience through their work. It doesn’t surprise me that their track is the most introspective on the album.

  38. Himanshu Singh

  52. Naglaa Ibrahim

    It's ironic before this song came out weeks ago some people I mean a lot of people been killed in Sudan and thrown in the Nile by rapid speed forces and tied rocks in their feet so they never float and no one know about them.... I literally cried when I heard this it reminded me of 3rd of June. Mascare may the souls of our brothers and sisters rest in peace

  66. Gavin Kinney

    SOMEONE PLEASE READ THIS.. Someone who knows how to mess with beats needs to go into this song and take out the background filler music/beat, so that way the song is ONLY them singing (including the effects to their voices) & the sort of wave crashing sound effect in the background and NOTHING else.. I PROMISE IT IS THE WAY THIS SONG SHOULD BE HEARD

    Lyrics from www.beyonce.com (Bey's official website)

    Verse 1: Beyoncé and Kendrick
    One time I took a swim in the Nile
    I swam the whole way I didn’t turn around
    Man I swear
    It made me relax when I came down

    I felt liberated like free birds
    I’m stimulated now
    Plunging away unless my body on top

    All of these current might cost me my life
    Right now

    When danger finds me it follow with tides
    Many miles ahead of me still I’m in stride
    She said

    Bridge: Beyoncé
    Hey little buddy where you going
    I’m not sure but I know I’m still in motion
    This ain’t regular I seen regular
    These streams may take me out to the ocean

    Verse: Kendrick
    Told myself if I dive in it without precaution of a life jacket
    Then I’ll dive in until I’m exhausted and I’m type lackin’
    Waste line on 4 deep
    Senses on 4 deep
    Feel like there’s 4 me

    Chorus: Beyoncé and Kendrick
    One time I took a swim in the Nile
    (one time I took a swim)
    I swam the whole way I didn’t turn around
    Man I swear

    It made me relax when I came down
    (when I came down)
    I felt liberated like free birds
    I’m stimulated now
    (stimulated) Plungin away unless my body on top
    (Stimulated now)
    All of these currents might cost me my life
    Right now
    (right now)
    When danger finds me it follows with tides
    (stimulated right now)
    Many miles ahead of me still I’m in stride

    That’s some good

    Verse: Beyoncé
    Got the Nile running through my body
    Look at my natural 
    I’m so exotic 
    Darker than berry
    Sweeter than fruit
    Deeper the wounded
    Deeper the roots
    Nubian doused in brown
    Boy I’m lounging in it
    Fountain of you, I said I’m drowning in it
    I’m in the Nile, deep in denial
    I’m in the Nile, deep in denial
