  • You were bad girl and your friends bad too
    Oh we got the swag sauce she drippin' swagu

    You were bad girl and your friends bad too
    Oh we got the swag sauce she drippin' swagu

    I may be young, but I'm ready
    To give you all my love
    I told my girls you can get it
    Don't slow it down, just let it go

    So in love
    I'll give it all away
    Just don't tell nobody tomorrow
    So tonight,
    I'll do it every way
    'Cause knockin' till the morning light

    'Cause we like to party, hey hey hey hey hey hey
    'Cause we like to party, hey hey hey hey hey hey
    'Cause we like to party

    Your touch is driving me crazy
    I can't explain the way I feel
    Tuck down with the radio on
    And the night belong to us
    Just hold me close, don't let me go

    So in love
    I don't care what they say
    I don't care if they talking tomorrow
    'Cause tonight's the night, uh uh uh, oh
    That I give you everything
    Music knockin' 'til the morning light
    'Cause we like to party

    Set the scene, three thousand degrees
    Ain't worried about them fuck niggas over there
    But they worried 'bout me
    I got a homeboy named Butta and another homeboy
    That nigga named Cheese, fuck wit' me baby,
    I make it milk till it drip down yo' knees
    Spit this shit fo' rillo, brain brillo
    Kiddo say he looks up to me, this just makes me feel old
    Never thought that we could become someone else's hero
    Man, we were just in the food court, eating our gyro
    Yesterday, that's the way, every single mornin'
    I try to pray grandmom 'n them, they never forgot
    And nothin' else really mean nuttin' to me
    I ain't stuntin' to beat, talkin' to me?
    Girl, why you fickin' wit' me?
    Move on, ain't nuttin' to see
    Pssh, always somethin' to salt,
    I'm the raw, off the rip
    'Cause of him, all of them, will remember the men
    And that they fell in love with rap,
    Black like havin' your cousin back
    Blue like when that rent is due,
    Cream like when I'm lovin' you, yeah

    So in love
    I'll give it all away
    Just don't tell nobody tomorrow
    'Cause tonight's the night, uh uh uh, oh
    That I give you everything
    Music knockin' 'til the morning light

    'Cause we like to party, hey hey hey hey hey hey
    'Cause we like to party, hey hey hey hey hey hey
    'Cause we like to party

    You were bad girl and your friends bad too
    Oh we got the swag sauce she drippin' swagu

  • Lynness28 from Sydney, AustraliaOne of the Beyonce songs I have listened to again, a lot lately. It reminds me of my dad who used to play ‘For your love’ Stevie Wonder when we were growing up.
    Surprised it’s not referenced for a melodic reference for the chorus and opening. Love how she used it.
