  • Look for me, Young, B
    Cruisin' down the west-side, highway
    Doing what we like to do, our way
    Eyes behind shades, this necklace the reason
    All of my dates been blind dates
    But today I got my thoroughest girl wit' me
    I'm mashin' the gas, she's grabbin' the wheel; it's true to the heart
    She rides with me--the new Bobby and Whitney
    Only time we don't speak is during "Sex and the City"
    She gets Carrie fever, but soon as the show is over
    She's right back to being my soldier
    'Cause mami's a rider and I'm a roller
    Put us together--how they gon' stop both us?
    Whatever she lacks, I'm right over her shoulder
    When I'm off track, mami is keepin' me focused
    So let's lock this down like it's supposed to be
    The '03 Bonnie and Clyde, Hov' and B

    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend
    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend

    The problem is you dudes treat the one that you lovin'
    With the same respect that you treat the one that you humpin'
    Dat ain't 'bout nothin
    If ever you mad about somethin', it won't be that, oh no, it won't be that
    I don't be at places where we comfy at
    With no be-atch; oh no, you won't see that
    And, no, I ain't perfect; nobody walkin' this earth's surface is
    But, girlfriend, work with the kid
    I keep you workin' at Hermes, Birkin' bag
    Manolo Blahnik, Timbs, aviator lens
    600 drops, Mercedes Benz
    The only time you wear Burberry to swim
    And I don't have to worry--only worry is him
    She'd do anything necessary for him
    And I'd do anything necessary for her
    So don't let the necessary occur, yup

    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend
    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend

    (Talk to 'em, B)
    If I was your girlfriend
    I'll be there for you if somebody hurts you
    Even if the somebody was me
    (Break it down for 'em, B)
    Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be
    And so I put this on my life
    Nobody or nothing will ever come between us
    And I promise I'll give my life
    My love and my trust if you was my boyfriend
    Put this on my life
    The air that I breathe in, all that I believe in
    I promise I'll give my life
    My love and my trust if you was my boyfriend

    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend
    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend

  • Maylis from Brussels The part from Prince If I was your girlfriend... was also in a TLC song
  • Jason Daniel Contreras from Detroit, Michigan I've been in conspiracy about this song for awhile now, my theory is that Beyonce and Jay z had something to do with Aaliyahs death back in 2001. The video shows us that they've pulled some sort of crime together at least Beyonce did, so they fled south to Mexico and still til this day escaped the police and punishment for them murders. Look at what Beyonce's career, she was nothing without Destiny Childs until she copied aaliyah career, her dances, the motorcycle, etc, Beyonce is a fraud. Beyonce couldn't handle competition very well so instead of competing against it she wiped it out of existence. Also Illuminati killed her but had Beyonce sabotage the plane, listen to her last music video backwards and it says who killed her and why. Rock the boat backwards.
  • Tameka Simmons from St.louismo., MoAnother thing is I think B'and Jay honestly expressed they're love for one another through the song.They gave a message to one another and obviously showed a real couple side,which made
    something amazin' glow.
  • Diane from Brooklyn, NyI'm okay with samples, provided that the sample is more than just sped up and rapped over. For instance, I personally loved Kanye West's song "Impossible" for the MI:3 soundtrack. It's a good sample and the remake is hot.
  • Stacey from Nowra, Australiachanged my mind i think its just about how they are a couple together forever like bonnie and clyde
  • Stacey from Nowra, Australiaagree wit luana and natasha eminem often talks about clyde mathers and bonnie jade
  • Casey from Toronto, CanadaTLC also re-made Princes' song
  • Lawrence from SingaporeIt hell isn't
  • Natasha from Bethany, Oki thought that the song title was probably based on the Eminem song.
  • Nathan from Defiance, OhStolen name, stolen song, stolen lyrics. Can rappers come up with anything original nowadays?
  • Luana from Perth, Australiaeminem recorded a song called 97 bonnie and clyde, on the "slim shady LP" (1999)
