Charted: 1 1
  • Lucy Liu, with my girl, Drew
    Cameron D and Destiny
    Charlie's Angels, come on
    Uh, uh, uh

    Question, tell me what you think about me
    I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings
    Only ring your cellie why when I'm feelin' lonely
    When it's all over please get up and leave

    Question, tell me how you feel about this
    Try to control me, boy, you get dismissed
    Pay my own fun, oh, and I pay my own bills
    Always fifty-fifty in relationships

    The shoes on my feet, I've bought it
    The clothes I'm wearing, I've bought it
    The rock I'm rockin', I've bought it
    'Cause I depend on me if I want it

    The watch you're wearin', I'll buy it
    The house I live in, I've bought it
    The car I'm driving, I've bought it
    I depend on me, I depend on me

    All the women who are independent
    Throw your hands up at me
    All the honeys who makin' money
    Throw your hands up at me

    All the mommas who profit dollas
    Throw your hands up at me
    All the ladies who truly feel me
    Throw your hands up at me

    Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
    Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?
    Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
    Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?

    Tell me how you feel about this
    Who would I want if I would wanna live?
    I worked hard and sacrificed to get what I get
    Ladies, it ain't easy bein' independent

    Question, how'd you like this knowledge that I brought
    Braggin' on that cash that he gave you is to front
    If you're gonna brag, make sure it's your money you flaunt
    Depend on no one else to give you what you want

    The shoes on my feet, I've bought it
    The clothes I'm wearing, I've bought it
    The rock I'm rockin', I've bought it
    'Cause I depend on me, if I want it

    The watch you're wearin', I'll buy it
    The house I live in, I've bought it
    The car I'm driving, I've bought it
    I depend on me, I depend on me

    All the women who are independent
    Throw your hands up at me
    All the honeys who makin' money
    Throw your hands up at me

    All the mommas who profit dollas
    Throw your hands up at me
    All the ladies who truly feel me
    Throw your hands up at me

    Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
    Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?
    Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
    Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?

    Destiny's Child, wassup?
    You in the house? Sure 'nuff
    We'll break these people off Angel style

    Child of destiny
    Independent beauty
    No one else can scare me
    Charlie's Angels

    Woah, all the women who are independent
    Throw your hands up at me
    All the honeys who makin' money
    Throw your hands up at me

    All the mommas who profit dollas
    Throw your hands up at me
    All the ladies who truly feel me
    Throw your hands up at me

    Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
    Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?
    Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
    Charlie, how your Angels get down like that?

    Girl, I didn't know you could get down like that
    Charlie, how your Angels get down Writer/s: MARK ROONEY, SAMUEL BARNES, JEAN OLIVIER, BEYONCE KNOWLES
