Beyonce’s musical catalog as a whole is fire, but there are some songs with some iconic lyrical moments. Here are some of our favs.
"Formation" - My daddy Alabama/ Momma Louisiana/ You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bama/ I like my baby heir with baby hair and afros/ I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils/ Earned all this money but they never take the country out me/ I got a hot sauce in my bag, swag.
"Best Thing I Never Had" - So sad, you're hurt/ Boo hoo, oh, did you expect me to care/ You don't deserve my tears/ I guess that's why they ain't there.
"Run The World - This goes out to all the women/ Getting it in, you on your grind/ To all the men that respect what I do/ Please accept my shine/ Boy you know you love it/ How we're smart enough to make these millions/ Strong enough to bear the children/ Then get back to business.
"All Night" - Our love was stronger than your pride/ Beyond your darkness, I'm your light/ If you get deep, you touch my mind/ Baptize your tears and dry your eyes.
"Daddy" - Even if my man broke my heart today/ No matter how much pain I’m in I will be okay/ ‘Cause I got a man in my life that can’t be replaced/ For this love is unconditional it won’t go away.
"Survivor" - You thought that I’d be broke without you/ But I’m richer/ You thought that I’d be sad without you/ I laugh harder/ You thought I wouldn’t grow without you/ Now I’m wiser/ Thought that I’d be helpless without you/ But I’m smarter.
"That's Why You're Beautiful" - Diamonds used to be coal/ Look young ’cause they got soul/ And my heart used to be cold/ ‘Til your hands laid on my soul/ Somebody’s got to stay deep in love/ That could be us.
"Bow Down" - I'm bigger than life/ my name in the lights/ I'm the number one chick/ I don't need no hype/
"Sorry" - Middle fingers up/ put them hands high/ Wave it in his face/ tell him, boy, bye.
"Brown Skin Girl" - Brown skin girl/ ya skin just like pearls/ Your back against the world/ I never trade you for anybody else.
