BEYONCE – “SINGLE LADIES” LYRICS


All the single ladies (7x)
Now put your hands up
Up in the club, just broke up
I’m doing my own little thing
Decided to dip but now you wanna trip
Cuz another brother noticed me
I’m up on him, he up on me
Don’t pay him any attention
Cried my tears, three good years
Ya can’t be mad at me

[Chorus]
Cuz if you liked it then you should have put a ring on it
If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it
Don’t be mad once you see that he want it
If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it

(Chorus)
I put gloss on my lips, a man on my hips
Hold me tighter than my Dereon jeans
Acting up, drink in my cup
I could care less what you think
I need no permission, did I mention
Don’t pay him any attention
Cuz you had your turn
But now you gonna learn
What it really feels to miss me

(Chorus)

Don’t treat me like things of this world
I’m not that kind of girl
Your love is what I prefer, what I deserve
He’s a man that makes me and takes me
And delivers me to a destiny, to infinity and beyond
Pull me into your arms
Say I’m not the one you own
If you don’t, you’ll be alone
And like a ghost, I’ll be gone

All the single ladies (7x)
Now put your hands up

(Chorus)

  • lady t

    I LOVE BEYONCE AND I AM TOTALLY LOVING IIWAB AND SINGLE LADIES…LOVE…LOVE…LOVE…=)

  • cyn

    Angel, go sit down somewhere, I just saw you on another site saying the same exact thing. Did you not know that BC Jean’s song was a DEMO? That’s what songwriters do, they sing (or get someone to sing it for them) demos then they shop around for someone to buy it. She gonna get paid, trust me.

  • ruben

    lol what can we win if we get the words right? ;)

  • bht

    im a fan of bee.i love “single ladies”yeah i admit it resembles get me bodied but who cares it is a cathy song especially i like the part that starts
    with “Don’t treat me like things of this world…” but i have some doubts about “if i were a boy”this song is ok but i can’t decide whether it is true to come up with a slow song especially for a highly anticipated album but even so i think it will do it well.and im just laughing for the comments like “don’t buy her album she wont pay for your mortgage” it is such a ridiculous comment and i saw it another page too(funny:)and its better than listening such artistswho cant sing at all.Anyway,cant wait to see videos especially single ladies and to listen the rest of the album.

    go bee!

  • Marco

    OMG!! I LOVE THIS SONG

    The perfect combination the great ballad if i were a boy and the club song SINGLE LADIES is so catchy!!!

    I want the album right know!!!!! Nov 18

  • http://www.myspace.com/yagurlkyra Kyra

    I got the correct lyrics!!! if u want them i put them on metrolyrics.com

    All the single ladies(7x)

    Now put your hands up

    Up in the club, just woke up

    I’m doing my own little thing

    Decided to dip but now you wanna trip

    Cuz another brother noticed me

    Im up on him, he up on me

    any attention

    cried my tears, three good years

    Ya can’t be mad at me

    [Chorus]

    Cuz if you liked it then you should have put a ring on it

    If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it

    Dont be mad once you see that he want it

    If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it

    I got gloss on my lips, a man on my hips

    And we tighter than my Dereon jeans

    acting up, breaking my cup

    I could care less what you think

    I need no permission, did i mention

    Dont care him attention

    But he really dont like to miss me

    (Chorus)

    Dont treat me to things of the world

    Im not that kind of girl

    Your love is what I prefer, what i deserve

    He’s a man that makes me and takes me

    And delivers me to a destiny, to infinity and beyond

    Pull me into your arms

    Say I’m not the one you own

    If you dont, youll be alone

    And like a ghost, Ill be gone

    All the single ladies(7x)

    Now put your hands up

    (CHORUS)

  • Amanda

    No just no.

  • zonz

    i love this song.beyonce is back and you cant deny it. she will be all other the radio, tv and media streams as always. gotta give her credits she is a hustler.

  • WhosDat

    she’s no single lady with that $5mn engagement ring she’s sporting:

  • tori232

    OMG… she stole BC JEAN song!!!!! fucking bitch!!!!

  • Mims

    Love ‘Single Ladies’. I think it should have been the main single instead of ‘If I Were A Boy’, which is an okay track, not first single material. But even so, like some people have put it, she’ll still come up on top.. And that’s because she has such loyal and supportive fans.

    And.. OMG. Some of you haters are so childish. If you want to critique, use reasonable criticism.. Like ‘Angel’, yes it’s obvious that Beyonce isn’t going to pay for your parents’ mortgage. But so are the other singers.

    Moreover.. Stop saying that Beyonce STOLE the song from BC Jean. Yes, BC Jean did record the song before Beyonce did, but haven’t any of you ever heard of covering a song? Of course BC Jean would be credited for the song.

  • nikki

    I am not a Beyonce fan by any means, however I heard this in passing and fell in love. Only because I can relate… the lyrics may not be that hot but the chorus is so true for all these lame brothers that say “you’re the one” and a few months later start tripping…

    “If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it…”

    Point blank!

  • nado

    single ladies is a really great song, if I were a boy is too.
    If you don’t like beyonce why the —- are you even commenting
    it’s kinda sad and perthetic and you should stop being so negative
    —-head! And to all the nice people in the world, the 4 stars are back
    britney
    beyonce
    p!nk
    christina
    and I hope they all go to #1
    Mouth me back I dare you —–

  • cindy

    Kyra
    Your lyrics are totally wrong!!!!!!!
    I’m gonna correct them.

  • Malik gaston

    Hi Everybody,
    I’m a true Beyonce fan..
    yea as everybody all ready knows this song does
    remind you of beyonce but its still a great song…I really don’t
    see why so many people out here have to just plainly hate on Beyonce….
    Just because she has the whole package and you don’t doesn’t mean you have to try to put here down!!
    She’s a very great singer and performer and also ENTERTAINER!
    ST0P THE HATING!!!!!!! ESPECIALLY ON BEYONCE!

    Just too hot for words!plus i know she’ll kill the video!if i were a boy showed her vocal skills which were flawless! MAKE WAY:QUEEN BEE IS BACK!

  • BC

    All I can say is…I like both songs. But I am disappointed. The reason I am disappointed is she leaves people believing that she co-wrote (to me it means she contributed at least 50% or more) the song…when in actuality…she wrote none of it!! Not only did she not write the song…she didn’t even change it up!! I have noticed that any song that is lyrically incredible…she didn’t write them.

    Beyonce published the following statement:

    I have worked on this album for close to one year. I have taken the time so I can create my sound. Something that says who I am at this stage in my life. I have poured my heart and soul into it. It is my baby. It is the most time I have spent on any project since my first records as a member of Destiny’s Child when I was 15 years old. I have recorded over 70 songs and have created a sound that reveals all of me. I am in a different place right now and I wanted people to see the many sides of me. The music is upbeat for the dance, fun side and it is reflective, passionate and serious for the personal side. I have taken risks here. I am not afraid and my music will explain it all. There is no label or tag on my sound. It’s me and I am so excited to share it with the world on November 18.’

    So when you say things like this…you make people believe it is your sound…and it isn’t hers…it is BC Jean’s. Oh well…I guess one day we will get an album that she will truly create on her own.

    Either way…we know that Beyonce will make it a hit and hopefully BC Jean will get her credit.

  • Shut Up

    “If I Were A Boy” was written by Toby Gad who wrote “Big Girls Don’t Cry” for Fergie and he had BC Jean sing the song as a demo for Beyonce….it’s just that BC Jean posted it on her myspace….BC Jean did not write the song, TOBY DID and Beyonce even change some lyrics because hers and Beyonce’s version is a little different, so people like Angel and the rest of you idiots need to STFU.

    Single Ladies is a great song, it is already getting a lot of airplay and the video is great so back off

    3. Don’t be mad when you see that HE WANT IT.

    4. On me tighter than DEREON JEANS

  • 2good2Btrue

    OMG…..People have nothing better 2 do than to hate on her. Most of you just mad because she’s a beautiful successful woman. She on top of the game and ain’t nothing you can do about it but bitch and whine. Go on with your damn life. Anyways “Angel” or whoever you are in order for you to acutually call it rubbish you have to listen to it first. Which in the first case if you didnt like her you wouldn’t have listened to it in the first place. Come on people she coming out with two cds in one day and she has had hits since Destiny’s Child. And the lyric is ” Dont pay him any attention. Love Ya Bey keep doing ya thang.

  • victoria

    I haven’t heard B’s first single but I must admit that I’m feeling the Single Ladies track. It’s very catchy & a song that I can jam to with a drink in my hand in the club….which is the purpose of the song. Yes she may be married but she still has a fan base to cater to. She’s a business woman first, A married woman Second!!!!!

  • bfan84

    here are the missing lyrics. they correspond to the blanks.

    1) we just broke up
    2)don’t pay him any attention
    3)cos he won it.
    4)got me tighter than my dereon jeans
    5)acting up, drink in my cup
    6)don’t pay him any attention
    7)like a ghost I’ll be gone.

    there ya go :)

  • Jeressia

    I’m not that kind of girl
    Your love is what I prefer, what I deserve
    He’s a man that makes me then takes me
    And delivers me to a destiny, to infinity and beyond
    Pull me into your arms
    Say I’m the one you own
    If you don’t, you’ll be alone
    And like a ghost I’ll be gone
