'03 Bonnie & Clyde
Beyoncé Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Uh, uh, uh
You ready, B?
Let's go get 'em

Look for me
Young, B, cruisin' down the Westside Highway
Doin' 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 with me
I'm mashin' the gas, she's grabbin' the wheel, it's trippy
How hard 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's 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, holla

All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend (me and my girlfriend)
Down to ride 'til the very end, is me and my boyfriend (me and my boyfriend) (that's right)
All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend (me and my girlfriend) (look for me)
Down to ride 'til the very end, is me and my boyfriend (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'
That 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 beatch, 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' that Hermès 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 do anything necessary for him
And I do anything necessary for her
So don't let the necessary occur, yep

All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend (me and my girlfriend)
Down to ride 'til the very end, is me and my boyfriend (me and my boyfriend) (that's right)
All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend (me and my girlfriend) (look for me)
Down to ride 'til the very end, is me and my boyfriend (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 that somebody was me (that's right!)
Yeah-hee (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 (one more time!)
It's 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 (me and my girlfriend)
Down to ride 'til the very end, is me and my boyfriend (me and my boyfriend) (that's right)




All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend (me and my girlfriend)
Down to ride 'til the very end, is me and my boyfriend (me and my boyfriend)

Overall Meaning

In the song "Bonnie and Clyde 03," Beyonce and Jay-Z come together to create a powerful narrative about a couple who will stop at nothing to stay together. Beyonce opens the song by describing their affluent lifestyle, riding down the Westside Highway with her man, protected by her shades and her extravagant necklace. She acknowledges that she is not perfect, but she has a partner who keeps her on track. The second verse takes on a more serious and poignant tone, with Jay-Z discussing the lack of respect that many men show to their girlfriends compared to how they treat other women they may be involved with. He highlights the importance of treating your significant other with love and respect, and not allowing anything or anyone to come between them. Beyonce then echoes this sentiment in the final verse, promising to always be there for her partner no matter what, all while accompanied by the driving beat and catchy melody of the song.


Overall, "Bonnie and Clyde 03" is a love story, but it is also a commentary on how society views relationships and how we should strive to treat our partners with respect and devotion.

Beyonce describes riding down the Westside Highway with her partner, both wearing sunglasses. The necklace she is wearing has been a reason for her not seeing her dates properly. She now has her girlfriend with her, and while she drives, Beyonce mashes the gas. Beyonce can't stop admiring how her girlfriend rides with her, and she even compares themselves to the iconic duo Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston. They don't speak when watching "Sex and the City," but she's always back to being Beyonce's soldier when the show is over. Together, they cannot be stopped. Beyonce supports her girlfriend and keeps her focused whenever she's off track. She believes in them and wants to lock the relationship down just like Bonnie and Clyde.


All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend (me and my girlfriend) Down to ride 'til the very end, is me and my boyfriend (me and my boyfriend) (that's right) All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend (me and my girlfriend) (look for me) Down to ride 'til the very end, is me and my boyfriend (me and my boyfriend)
Beyonce repeats her desire for a life with her girlfriend and boyfriend, who are both down to ride until the very end with her. They are what she needs in this sinful life.


The problem is, you dudes treat the one that you lovin' With the same respect that you treat the one that you humpin' That 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 beatch, 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' that Hermès 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 do anything necessary for him And I do anything necessary for her So don't let the necessary occur, yep
Beyonce sings about how men often treat their side chicks and main girlfriends with the same respect. She believes it's not about anything important, and if she's ever upset, it won't be about that. Beyonce doesn't go to places where they are comfortable with their side chick around. She isn't perfect, but she wants her girlfriend to work well with her. She provides for her girlfriend and makes sure she has the best. Both of them would do anything for each other, and Beyonce trusts her girlfriend. She encourages them not to let anything bad ever happen in their relationship.


(Talk to 'em, B!) If I was your girlfriend I'll be there for you, if somebody hurts you Even if that somebody was me (that's right!) Yeah-hee (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 (one more time!) It's 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
Here, Beyonce addresses her girlfriend's boyfriend and tells him that if she were his girlfriend, she'd always be there for him, even if she hurt him. Sometimes, she thinks about how happy they could be together. She promises that nothing and no one could ever come between them. She would give her life, love, and trust if he were her boyfriend. Beyonce believes in these values unconditionally.

Lyrics: Bonnie & Clyde

Uhh, uhh, uhh
You ready B? Let's go get 'em
Look for me, Young, B, cruising down the Westside 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 mashing the gas, she's grabbing 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?
What ever she lacks, I'm right over her shoulder
When I'm off track mami is keeping me focused
So let's, lock this down like it's supposed to be
The '03 Bonnie & Clyde, Hov' and B
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til 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 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend
The problem is, you dudes treat the one that you loving
With the same respect that you treat the one that you humping
Now they 'bout nothing if ever you mad about something
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 walking this earth's surface is
But girlfriend, work with the kid
I keep you working at Kermain, 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 do anything necessary for him
And I do anything necessary for her
So don't let the necessary occur, yep
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til 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 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend
If I was your girlfriend
I'll be there for you, if somebody hurts you
Even if it's somebody takes my place
Yeah-hee
(Break it down for 'em)
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
And all of 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
And all of my trust if you was my boyfriend
All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride 'til 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 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend

I almost forgot this song until I saw the Airbnb commercial with that old couple on what looks like a trip overseas. What a classic song!

The mid 80s- mid 2000s era will remain unique in music history. The record industry was making so much money they could afford to allocate $1 million plus to music video budgets and that gave us some of the most creative, cinematic and memorable videos. Now all videos are shot on portable digital cameras and all look the same. No more helicopters, speedboats, action sequences. This video, Honey by Mariah Carey and Remember the Times by Michael Jackson are prime examples of absolute classics.

Facts

@marvinhoward2698

Damn haven’t thought about it. Yeah, these new videos are trash. The concepts are really weak with extras in the video doing nothing. Literally sometimes doing nothing, like a statue

@ObeAroundTheGlobe

the music industry is making even more money today. I think the difference is that technology has improved. Janet and Michael's scream video is still the most expensive video of all time because CGI was so damn expensive back then. Also, nowadays the music videos focus more on the artist rather than the plot. There isn't a need for all the expensive effects. Artistry changes over time
