Beyoncé – Dance For You lyrics
I just wanna...
Show you how much I appreciate you
Wanna show you how much I'm dedicated to you
Wanna show you how much I will forever be true
Wanna show you how much you got your girl feelin' good
Wanna show you how much, how much you're understood
Wanna show you how much, I value what you say
Not only are you loyal, you're patient with me bay
Wanna show you how much, I really care about yo heart
I wanna show ya how much, I hate being apart
Show ya, show ya, show ya til you're through with me
I wanna keep it how it is, so you can never say how it used to be

(Bridge)
Loving you is really all that's on my mind
And I can't help but to think about it day and night
I wanna make that body rock, sit back and watch

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna put my body on your body
Boy I like it when you watch me, ah
Tonight it's going down
I'll be rockin' on my babe rockin', rockin' on my babe
Swirlin' my babe Twirlin', swirlin' on my babe
Baby lemme put my body on your body
Promise not to tell nobody cuz
It's bout to go down

You'll never need 2, cuz I will be your number 1
Them other chicks are superficial
But I know you know I'm the one
That's why I'm all into you
Cuz I can recognize that you know that
That's why I'm backin' this thing back
Pop, poppin' this thing back
Drop-drop-drop-dropping this thing back
This is for the time, you gave me flowers
For the world, that is ours
For the mulah, for the power of love
I know I won't never ever eh-ever give you up
And I wanna say thank you in case I don't thank you enough
A woman in the street and the freak in the you know what
Sit back sit back it's the pre game show
Daddy you know what's up

(Bridge)
Loving you is really all that's on my mind
And I can't help but to think about it day and night
I wanna make that body rock, sit back and watch

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna put my body on your body
Boy I like it when you watch me, ah
Tonight it's going down
I'll be rockin' on my babe rockin', rockin' on my babe
Swirlin' my babe swirlin', swirlin' on you babe
Baby lemme put my body on your body
Promise not to tell nobody cuz
It's bout to go down

Imma take this time
To show you how much you mean to me
Cuz you all I need
No money can emphasize or describe
The love that's in between the lines
Boy look into my eyes
While I'm grinding on you
This is beyond sex
I'm high on you
If it's real then you know how I feel
Rockin on you babe
Rockin rockin on you babe
Swirlin on you babe
In my mind all I can think about
Is a frame for our futures
And the pictures of the past
And a chance to make this love last

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna put my body on your body
Boy I like it when you watch me, ah
Tonight it's going down
I'll be rockin' on my babe rockin', rockin' on my babe
I be swirlin' my babe swirlin', swirlin' on you babe
Baby lemme put my body on your body
Promise not to tell nobody cuz
It's bout to go down

Watch me pop it, pop it, pop-pop-pop-pop it for you baby
Drop it, drop it, drop it, drop it for you baby
Watch it, watch it, watch it, watch me throw it baby
Wanna make that body rock, sit back and watch

Watch me pop it, pop it, pop-pop-pop-pop it for you baby
Drop it, drop it, drop it, drop it for you baby
Watch it, watch it, watch it, watch me throw it baby
Wanna make that body rock, sit back and watch

    It's about giving yourself fully, being yourself - loosing control on that one person you love deeply, for the one your ment for. I love music, I love dancing because through my dancing I'm able to express my emotions. The lyrics and the beat to this song makes this very seductive, mysterious, and classy for a lady to show that one he is her everything. I only wish I can have the opportunity to dance for the one I love and give it my every breathe and passion. O 143 4 life and after.

    Song is beautiful about a woman who just wants to let her man know how much he is valued in her life there's nothingthat compares and dancing for him is just a small expression she can show him but the words are strong like wedding vows its like a promise n a thank you my fave parts are "i wanna keep it how it is so u can never say how it use to be" and "u will never need 2 cuz i will be your number 1 "

    Its a song of appreciation from a woman to a man that she loves truly. Most especially the part where she emphasises her thanks to him and where she says "this is for the time you gave me flowers, for the world that is ours for the moonlight, for the power of love". If a lady wants to tell her man how she feels, this song says it all. Keep it up beyonce. I love it!

    Well this song means a lot to me. Not only having the best thing ever with me, but for finding a best friend in him. The one that knows me like no one else. The one that keeps promises that are never broken unless they are needed to. The one that's always been by my side through tough times. The one that just started off as someone that used to walk past without saying hi, then my best friend and now my man! I just love him. This song means a lot.

    Wow lol. I saw the video and of course all the adults know what this is about. On a spiritual level its about two souls connecting, on a physical level its about them expressing what she is feeling for this man, she kind of took an idea every woman thinks about. Dancing for her man. Especially when he has been taking great care of her and appreciates the woman she is too.

    To me this song means that a woman loves her man and she is going to give him a dance to show him how much she loves him. She wanna think him for all he has done for her. So the way she expresses her self is by dancing for him. Let him sit back and watch and enjoy his self while she gives him a good time. --sheurekaaa "rekaaa"!

    Beyonce is pretty much saying that beacause this man has been so good her and the way he makes her feel makes her want to dance for him (get in the mood). Shes rewarding her man.

    -'dance for you' is about giving yourself fully to one person. It's about being able to lose control with the person you're meant for. Both the melody and the lyrics make it one of my most intimate songs, so I wanted the video to have the same rawness. I wanted the video to have a classic feel; to be seductive but still keep the sense of mystery. When I write, when I perform, and when I make music videos, I don't hold anything back. Dance for you is about that same passion; to be free and unrestrained. " - beyoncé

    Dance for you is a tongue-in-cheek look at being an exotic dancer. That those in the s** industry are only selling their bodies is a silly notion, as anyone who has witnessed this kind of exchange knows that what they are really giving the customer is a play at love. Faking affection, devotion, and passion is something that these dancers must become experts at.
    "no money can emphasize or describe / the love that's inbetween the lines" tells us that she is trying to increase the amount of money her client will give her by producing a "priceless" performance full of "love. " many people interpreted this song incorrectly by taking it at face value. In the video for the song, however, beyonce clears up any misconceptions by dancing like a stripper for an old white guy in a suit.
