Beyoncé – Countdown lyrics

Boy!

Oh, killing me softly and I'm still falling
Still the one I need, I will always be with you

Oh, you got me all gone, don't ever let me go
Say it real loud if you fly
If you leave me you're out of your mind

My baby is a 10
We dressing to the 9
He pick me up we 8,
Make me feel so lucky 7
He kiss me in his 6
We be making love at 5
Still the one I do this 4
I'm tryna make us 3
From that 2
He's still the 1

There's ups and downs in this love
Got a lot to learn in this love
Through the good and the bad, still got love
Dedicated to the one I love, hey

Still love the way he talk, still love the way I sing
Still love the way he rock them black diamonds in that chain
Still all up on each other, ain't a damn thing changed
My girls can't tell me nothing, I'm gone in the brain
I'm all up under him like it's cold, winter time
All up in the kitchen in my heels, dinner time
Do whatever that it takes, he got a winner's mind
Give it all to him, meet him at the finish line

Me and my boo and my boo boo riding
All up in that black with his chick right beside him
Ladies, if you love your man show him you the flyest
Grind up on it, girl, show him how you ride it
Me and my boo and my boo boo riding
All up in that black with his chick right beside him
Ladies, if you love your man show him you the fliest
Grind up on it, girl, show him how you ride it

Oh, killing me softly and I'm still fallin'
Still the one I need, I will always be with you
Oh, you got me all gone, don't ever let me go
Say it real loud if you fly
If you leave me you out of your mind

My baby is a 10
We dressing to the 9
He pick me up we 8,
Make me feel so lucky 7
He kiss me in his 6
We be making love at 5
Still the one I do this 4
I'm tryna make us 3
From that 2
He still the 1

Yup, I put it on him, it ain't nothing that I can't do
Yup, I buy my own, if he deserve it, buy his shit too
All up in the store, shorty, tricking if I want to
All up in the store, shorty, fly as we want to

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Damn I think I love that boy
Do anything for that boy
Boy!
Now I'll never be the same
You and me until the end

Me and my boo and my boo boo riding
All up in that black with his chick right beside him
Ladies, if you love your man show you the flyest
Grind up on it, girl, show him how you ride it
Me and my boo and my boo lip locking
All up in the back because the chicks keep flocking
All that gossip in 10 years stop it
London speed it up, Houston rock it

Oh, killing softly and I'm still falling
Still the one I need, I will always be with you
Oh, you got me all gone, don't ever let me go
Say it real loud if you fly,
If you leave me you're out of your mind

My baby is a 10
We dressing to the 9
He pick me up we 8,
Make me feel so lucky 7
He kiss me in his 6
We be making love at 5
Still the one I do this 4
I'm tryna make us 3
From that 2
He still the 1

    I love beyonce. She is the world's most beautiful woman. She is my biggest idol. She is my roll model. She is so cute in her own way, and there's so special. She can put a bag on her body and I still think she's beautiful. I love the song countdown. But it's just a shame that you can not see she is pregnant in the video. :-/ but any ways. Greatings from denmark:-d

    Why are most of these comments so negative? Beyonce is happy and in love ans she sings about it, if she was miserable and sang about that you people would be happy. So what she signs about diamonds and cars! Get off your butt work hard, go to school, learn a trade or do something so that you can get diamonds and cars. I so sick of hearing about this illuminati nonsense where is the real proof? The illuminatti is supposed to be a secret society if this were true do you think the average person would know they in this "secret society" be real! Jay-z and beyonce are great artist and if you don't like them don't buy their albums. They are filthy rich so people hate on them and make up rumors about them because they lack the ambition, brains, and will power or talent to become wealthy.
    Just because you are pregnant does not mean you can't dance. I'm sure her doctor has made her aware of what she can and can't do.

    All people don't see how wrong beyonce and jay are. They are soo rich and care for nobody else. Beyonce even sells now her unborn baby just like christina aguilera and watch on YouTube "the arrivals" you can see they are devil worshipers. I know it sounds soo strange but its totally true even the us state is doing rituals from the mayas on the capital building. And we all see how they say they are soo good but usa is really doing people want to hide. But the truth always comes out.

    The words are not for her age, she should try growing up I mean. Her so called mr 10 already got her pregnent so W. T. F does she want now. The video is just exploitation of her pregnancy I mean hasnt anyone ever told her not to wear heels when pregnant, or make rough movementshe has a great voice but she should stick to showing her body to her mr 10, we don't wanna know about her s*t, and again she is exploiting her pregnancy for fame.
