  • (Ay)
    (Ay)
    (Ay, nobody likes being played)

    Oh, Beyonce, Beyonce
    Oh, Shakira, Shakira (hey)

    He said I'm worth it, his one desire
    I know things about that him you wouldn't want to read about
    He kissed me, his one and only, (yes) beautiful liar
    Tell me how you tolerate the things you just found out about

    You never know
    Why are we the ones who suffer?
    I have to let go
    He won't be the one to cry

    (Ay) Let's not kill the karma
    (Ay) Let's not start a fight
    (Ay) It's not worth the drama
    For a beautiful liar
    (Oh) Can't we laugh about it?
    (Oh) It's not worth our time
    (Oh) We can live without him
    Just a beautiful liar

    I trusted him, but when I followed you
    I saw you together
    I didn't know about you then till I saw you with him again
    I walked in on your love scene
    Slow dancing
    You stole everything, how could you say I did you wrong?

    We'll never know
    When the pain and heartbreak's over
    I have to let go
    The innocence is gone

    (Ay) Let's not kill the karma
    (Ay) Let's not start a fight
    (Ay) It's not worth the drama
    For a beautiful liar
    (Oh) Can't we laugh about it?
    (Oh) It's not worth our time
    (Oh) We can live without him
    Just a beautiful liar

    Tell me how to forgive you (ooh)
    When it's me who's ashamed (oh)
    And I wish I could free you
    Of the hurt and the pain
    But the answer is simple
    He's the one to blame (hey)

    Ay, Beyonce, Beyonce
    Ay, Shakira, Shakira
    Oh, Beyonce, Beyonce
    Oh, Shakira, Shakira

    (Ay) Let's not kill the karma
    (Ay) Let's not start a fight
    (Ay) It's not worth the drama
    For a beautiful liar
    (Oh) Can't we laugh about it?
    (Oh) It's not worth our time
    (Oh) We can live without him
    Just a beautiful liar

  • Martamjlover from UsaI've had this happen to me more than once. And I hated to have my heart broken so many times it sucks. Like Else Debarred say's in one of his songs the heart is not so smart. But this song is good not the having u'r heart broken part though. But Shakira and beyonce' are right the guy is the to blame.
  • Nadia from Phoenix, Azthis is one of those songs that the video is so good it will carry it further then the song alone.
