01. The Writing's on the Wall (Intro)

LeToya Barzini
I wanna thank you
For having you organize
This meeting here today

And Kelly Steracki
I also want to thank you
And all the other Dons of the four families
Beyonce Corleone, from the South West
Ah, LaTavia Clemenser from the Four-Four

Our objective of this meeting today
Is to discuss Destiny's Child's
Commandments of relationships

You know it's so unfortunate, so unnecessary
For us to end up with brokenhearts

Yes Godfather
Times have changed
Relationships aren't like the old days
You know?

See what we need is a man of his word
All this, uh cheating, uh backstabbing, uhm hating
No more, no more

But Godfather, how do we avoid all these mishaps?

It's obvious, the writing's on the wall


02. So Good

Hey how you doing?
Yeah, I'm doing mighty fine
That's how I say 'it's been a long time'
Stop smiling at me, get that look off your face
Please dont even front, stop being so fake
I know you don't like me, yeah you've made it very clear
You always talkin' 'bout me from what I hear
Always put me down when you thought that you could
But I want you to know that I'm doin' so good

Wasn't it you that said I thought I was all that and you
Said and I didn't have a clue
Wasn't it you that said that I wouldn't make it through
And wasn't it you that said that I didn't look too good
That I wouldn't do too good
I'd never make it out the hood
I want you to know that I'm doing so good

(Chorus)
So good so good so good
I know you hate it, but I'm
So good so good so good
I'm doin' so so so so so good
So good so good so good
It's hard to face it but I'm
So good so good so good

This is for the haters that had said we wouldn't make it
Now we're down platinum and now you can't take it
For all the people 'round us that have been negative
Look at us now, see how we live
I stay down with my people, all the ones who keep it real
Didn't get caught up and how that make you feel?
All the things I'm doin' that you thought I never could
I want you to know that I'm doin' so good
Wasn't it you that said that I thought I was all that
And you said I didn't have a clue
Wasn't it you that said
That I wouldn't make it through
Wasn't it you that said that I wouldn't do too good
Look at me, NOW AINT GOD GOOD
And now I made it out the hood
I want you to know that I'm doing so good

(Chorus)

I'm doing so so so so so
I'm doing so so so so so
I'm doing so so so so so good good good good good good
I'm doing so so so so so
I'm doing so so so so so
I'm doing so so so so so good good good good good good


03. Bills, Bills, Bills

At first we started out real cool,(cool)
Taking me places i ain'tnever been
But now your getting comfortable
Ain't doing those things that you did no more
Your slowly makin me pay for things
Your money should be handling


And now you ask to use my car (car)
Drive it all day and don't fill up the tank
And you have the audacity
To even come and step to me
And ask to hold some money from me
Until you get your check next week
(bridge)
You triflin',good for nothing type of brother
Silly me,why haven't I found another
A baller, when times get hard he's the one to help me out
insted of, a scrub like you who don't know what a man's about

(chorus2x)
can
you pay my bills
can you pay my telephone bills
can you pay my automo'bills
then maybe we can chill
I don't think you do
so you and me are through

now you been maxing out my card(card)
give me bad credit,buying gifts with my own ends
haven't paid the first bill
but you steady heading to the mall
going on shopping sprees
peprpetrating to your friends that you be ballin'

and then you use my cell phone(phone)
callin who ever that you think at home
and when the bill comes all of a sudden you be acting dumb
don't know where none of these calls come from
when your mamma's numbers here more than once


(bridge)
(chorus 2x)

(bridge4x)

(chorus4x)

[Missy]
Uh, uh, oh

[Beyonce:]
Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh Ooh Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh

The day you pissed me off I told Mike to pick me up
I told him you was buggin' and I don't like to fuss
He said he would look out for me If I needed a friend
He took me to his house and then he invited me in
Then we sat on the couch, he put his arms around my waist
Knowin' I need lovin' and then he grabbed my face
He kissed me like a guy could never kiss a girl before
So you know what happened baby I need to say no more

[1] - I'm just confessing 'bout the things I did
I might as well come clean What you feel about that baby
I'm just confessing 'bout the things I did
I might as well come clean What you feel about that baby

[2] - I'm just guessing that you're through with me
Cause I just came clean What you feel about that baby
I'm just guessing, are you through with me
Cause I just came clean What you feel about that

[Beyonce:]
Remember the time you wondered where your money went
I called my friends and bought some clothes And took them on a trip
I met a dude that had a Jeep And we talked all the time
He asked me about my man And you know that I had to lie
He thought I had no man and I was chillin' by myself
Don't get mad cause I feel sad That's why I must confess
Too many times I wanted to let you know my dirt
But everytime you said you loved me I knew it would hurt

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 2 (with addlibs)]

[3] - I was mad, what was I to do?
Never had it in mind to play on you
But look at all the hurt you put me through

06. Temptation

(Chorus 4x)
I know you see me watching you
And I see you watching me
Cuz boy your body's callin'
The temptation is killin' me

I'm chillin' at the spot and my posse's 4 deep
Had my man on my mind, turn my head, what did I see
The fellas lookin' fly, there was one that caught my eye
So I bit my lip, switched my hips as I walked by
Sayin' "Sexy boy, you so fly
I just might give you a try
I'ma write yo' number in the palm of my hand
Oops, I forgot I got a man"

(Chorus 4x)

I'm thinkin' to myself, should I even take the chance?
Should I do what's on my mind or should I stay down with my man?
This boy here got me fiendin' and I'm wantin' him so bad
Should I chill when I'm with him
and risk everything I have
Saying "Sexy boy, you so fly
I wish I could give you a try
But my man's at home waiting for me by the phone
Sorry, can't get my groove on"

(Chorus 4x)

(Bridge 2x)
Temptation is callin'
I be wantin' you so bad I could cry
Relationship's callin' me
To do what's wrong, but I gotta do right

(Chorus 4x)

(Bridge 2x)

(Chorus to fade)


07. Now That She's Gone

(Chorus)
Now that she's gone, you wanna come back
Is that a fact?
You've got it like that
You've made me wait too long, I'm gone
Now that she's gone, you wanna come back
Is that a fact?
You've got it like that
You've made me wait too long, I'm gone

Take her to the movies, dinner all the time
Shopping sprees for her; on me you never spent a dime
But I was there for you when you had nothing at all
Then you got a lil job and she's the one you call and

(Chorus)

You've taken me for granted but you only get one chance
Then you left me hurting and it won't happen again
So she finally left you, it ain't no surprise
That you miss your water 'cause your well went dry

(Chorus 2X)

Bridge:
Understand, I understand, why you think I want you back
After what you did to me
Did you think you blinded me?
Boy you know whatever you do it will all come back to you
'Cause you tried to play me like a fool
Understand, I understand, why you think I want you back
After what you did to me
Did you think you blinded me?
Boy you know whatever you do it will all come back to you

(Chorus with adlibs to fade)


08. Where'd You Go

09. Hey Ladies

(Chorus A - 2X)
Hey ladies why is it that men can go do us wrong
Why is it that we just decide to keep holdin' on
Why is it that we never seem to just have the strength to leave
But he's got to go, he's got to go

My man's been cheatin' on me
Been runnin' round here wit' this little tenderoni
And don't think I haven't noticed
He's been actin' funny
Takin' too long to call me
And somebody told me
That the worst thing of it all is that he gave her money

Now how he gon' give her my ends
That's a no, no
My first reactions telling me he's got to go, go
But I just ain't for sure
Should I just let him go
Oh I don't know

(Chorus B)
Yeah he did me wrong
But I love him so
I keep holding on
But he got to go, he got to go
Thought he was the one
But now I don't know
After what he's done
He's got to go, he's got to go

(Chorus A)

You keep rewinding it
Stoppin' it and playing yourself over again
See I'm sick and tired of you doin' that same old thing
Sick of your same routine
Now you've got to come clean
Cause it's killing me

(Chorus B)
(Chorus A)

I just don't understand
You get chance after chance
And you say that you'll do right
But I really do not know if you can
It's not in your plans
That you've shown
Can you change, don't think so
Now I gotta let you go

Got to go-go-go-go-go
Got to go-go-go-go-go

(Chorus A until fade)


10. If You Leave

[1] - [Destiny's Child]:
If you leave her, I'll leave him
We'll pack our bags, don't say a word
Let's go far away, to another place
Let's hide away, oh just you and me

[Beyonce:] I peeped him long time ago when he told me
(He's never seen the chick before)
He wouldn't give me no explanation
Cause he knows when I pack my bags it ain't for no vacation, so

[Destiny's Child:]
I'm gonna do my thang,
I'm leavin' his ass alone (Oh I'm gone, Oh I'm movin' on my way)
He's history(he' history),
Too late The game is over
He'll see a girl's
Gotta do what she's gotta do

[Repeat 1 2x]

[R.L.]
I called 612-555-2422 to find you
I packed my bags, gassed up the Jag
And I told my dad
you're the finest girl I never had

[Next] And so my lady, what's the message, page me
I know it might sound crazy, but say you'll be my baby
She crushed my new Benz,
slept with my best friend
Spent all my ends, it's got to end

[Beyonce] Ooh, how do I know you won't hurt me like he has? (I know I'm afraid he'll want me back)
[R.L.] You've gotta have faith in me (you know I do) I'd never play ya babe Cause my love is all right (Cause my love is all you'll ever need)
[Beyonce] Cause I need someone for me
[R.L]This love was meant to be
[Beyonce] It's our destiny
[Beyonce & R.L.]Just run away with me, oh ho

[2] - [Next] If you leave him, I'll leave her
Let's pack our bags, don't say a word
Let's go far away, to another place
Let's hide away,
Oh just you and me

[Repeat 1 Repeat 2]
[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 2]
[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 2]
[Repeat 1]


11. Jumpin, Jumpin

(Chorus A)
Ladies leave your man at home
The club is full of ballers and their pockets full grown
And all you fellas leave your girl with her friends
Cause it's eleven thirty and the club is jumpin', jumpin'

(Chorus B)
Though he say he got a girl
Yeah it's true you got a man
But the party ain't gon' stop
So let's make it hot, hot

Last weekend you stayed at home alone and lonely
Couldn't find your man, he was chillin' with his homies
This weekend you're going out
If he try to to stop you, you're goin' off
You got your hair done and your nails done too
A new outfit and your Fendi shoes
And when you're through parlayin' at the hottest spot
Tonight you're gonna find the fellas
Rollin' in the Lexus, drops and Hummers

(Chorus B)

(Chorus A - 2x)

(Chorus B)

Call your boys cause tonight you're not gonna stay at home
Should tell your girl she ain't comin' tonight
You're goin' solo
Cut her off cause she talk some noise
You know you got the right to get your party on
So get your haircut and your car washed too
Lookin' like a star in your Armani suit
You need to look your best cause you're turnin' heads tonight
You're gonna find a sexy chica that's gonna dance all night
If you wanna

(Chorus B)

(Chorus A - 2X)

(Chorus B)

Sexy women do that dance
Fly ladies work your man
Balling fellas time to clown
We can get down now

Bounce baby, bounce, bo-bounce bounce, bo-bounce
Twirk it, twirk it
Shake baby, shake sha-shake shake
Work it, work it
Twist baby, twist tw-twist
You better dip that thing
(One more time papi's mommies)

Bounce baby, bounce, bo-bounce bounce, bo-bounce
Twirk it, twirk it
Shake baby, shake sha-shake shake
Work it, work it
Twist baby, twist tw-twist
You better dip that thing
(Bounce it up and down papi's mommies)

Sexy women do that dance
Fly ladies work your man
Balling fellas time to clown
We can get down now
(Chorus A - 4X)


I ain't thinkin' about my man tonight
Uh huh, I ain't worried my girl aight
(Chorus A until fade)


12. Say My Name

(Chorus A)

Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say "baby I love you"
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name
You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin me baby
Why the sudden change?
Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say "baby I love you"
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name
You actin' kinda shady
Ain't callin me baby
Better say my name

Any other day I would call, you would say
"Baby how's your day?"
But today it ain't the same
Every other word is uh huh, yea okay
Could it be that you are at the crib with another lady?
If you took it there, first of all, let me say
I am not the one to sit around and be played
So prove yourself to me
i'm the girl that you claim
Why don't you say the thangs
That you said to me yesterday?

(Chorus B)
I know you say that I am assuming things
Something's going down that's the way it seems
Shouldn't be the reason why you're acting strange
If nobody's holding you back from me
Cause I know how you usually do
When you say everything to me times two
Why can't you just tell the truth?
If somebody's there then tell me who

(Chorus A)

What's up with this?
Tell the truth, who you with
How would you like it if I came over with my clique
Don't try to change it now
Sayin' you gotta bounce
When two seconds ago, you said you just got in the house
It's hard to believe that you
are at home, by yourself
When I just heard the voice
Heard the voice of someone else
Just this question
Why do you feel you gotta lie?
Gettin' caught up in your game
When you can not say my name

(Chorus B)
(Chorus A)

(Where my ladies at) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yea-yeah
(Can you say that? C'mon) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(All the girls say) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(I can't hear ya) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(All the ladies say) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah..yeah
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(All the girls say) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

(Break it down) Ohh ooohh oh ooh ohhhh
(D.C., take it to the bridge c'mon)

(Chorus B)
(Chorus A until fade)


13. She Can't Love You

[Beyonce:]
I saw your new girlfriend the other day
And i expected for her to be so much more than she was
I checked out her style, the way she smiled
The way she moved, the things she said
The way she looked at me like, "i got yo man"

[1]-She cant love you like i can
Her awful love just cant compare to what i have
She cant touch you like i do
Cause when y'all touching, you pretend its me and you

And theres no way her love's as good as mine
Theres no reason for you to waist your time

[Beyonce:]
When we were together you told me what you didnt like
And you went out and got exactly that type
Except that your new girl is nothing compared to me
Everything that she did wrong i always did right

[2]
She cant hold you like i can
Boy you a fool if you cant realize what you had
She cant feel you like i can
Cause im a girl thats always standin by my man

And theres no way her loves as good as mine
Theres no reason for you to waste your time
And theres no way her loves as good as mine
Theres no reason for you to waste your time

[Bridge:]
theres no way, theres no way
that her love could be could be good as mine
theres no reason no reason
for you to even go and waste your time, your time

and theres no way her loves as good as mine
theres no reason for you to waste your time
and theres no way her loves as good as mine
theres no reason for you to waste your time [repeat until fade]


14. Stay

[1:]
Baby i want for nothing just your tender sweet loving
I know youve got your things to do
But tell me what means more to you
Hanging out with me or with your boys
Sometimes i do get lonely
But no you and no one to hold me
You want so much to lay me down
Is that what keeps you hanging round
Is that the only way to win your heart?

[2:]
Well if i loved you a little bit longer
if my love was a little bit stronger
would you stay, stay? baby please stay
if i granted all of your wishes
give you more than touches and kisses
would you stay, stay? i need you to stay

[3:]
I'll be, be yours forever but can we keep us together?
I know the time is drawing near
I promised you has it been a year
Baby now im ready will you stay? sta-ay

[repeat 2:]

[4:]
Every night I lay and think about it
If you love me you could live without it But i dont wanna do you that way no no, no no no
I dont know exactly what im feelin
I'm kinda scared but then I'm kinda willin
Will you promise me just one thing?
No matter what you're gonna stay...

[repeat 2]


15. Sweet Sixteen

You couldn't tell little Jackie nothing
Sixteen, thought she knew it all
(She was searching for the love she missed yeah)
And so she ran away

(Chorus)
(Slow down)
You're moving way too fast
(Sixteen)
There's so much for you ahead
Sweet sixteen
Do you know where you're running to

She fell in love with a man who was so fine (so fine)
He made her promises, yeah
She didn't stop to think if he was serious
(No, no, no)
Until she had his baby
Sweet sixteen
(Chorus)


Sixteen years, sixteen prayers
Sixteen reasons why I care
Sixteen tears, you're sixteen still
Sweet sixteen (girl)

I know you're feeling lonely
Who you gonna turn to
Just like the worlds closing in on you
Sweet sixteen
You need cherish what you have
You can forget about the past
Now you can start all over, you can start all over again
And cherish your life
(Chorus)


Sweet sixteen
Do you know where you're going to
Ba ba ba ba ba

At sixteen
Do you know where you're going to
Slow down
Do you know where you're going to

Sweet sixteen
At sixteen
Sweet sixteen
