Nine, four, eight, one
B day

Mission one, I'm-a put this on
When he see me in this dress, I'm-a get me some, hey
Mission two, gotta make that call
Tell 'em get the bottles poppin' when they play my song, hey
Mission three, got my three best friends
Like we do it all the time, we gon' do it again, hey
Mission four, got the vintage Rolls
Drop a couple hundreds, tell 'em leave it at the door

I ain't worried, doing me tonight
A little sweat ain't never hurt nobody
While y'all standin' on the wall
I'm the one tonight gettin' bodied
Gettin' bodied (Gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied (Gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied (I'm the only one tonight gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied
Want my body (Gettin' bodied)
Won't you get me bodied? (Gettin' bodied)
If you want my body (I'm the only one tonight gettin' bodied)
Won't you get me bodied?

Hey can you get me bodied?
I wanna be myself tonight
Can you get me bodied?
I wanna be myself tonight
Don't you see my body?
I wanna let it out tonight
Wanna party, wanna dance, wanna be myself tonight

Mission five, skip to the front of the line
Let me fix my hair 'fore I go inside hey
Mission six, gotta check these chicks
'Cause you know they gon' block when I take these flicks hey
Mission seven, gotta make my rounds
Givin' eyes to the guys, now I think I found him hey
Mission eight, while we're conversating, we can skip small talk
Let's get right to the chase hey

I ain't worried, doing me tonight
A little sweat ain't never hurt nobody
While y'all standin' on the wall
I'm the one tonight gettin' bodied
Gettin' bodied (Gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied (Gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied (I'm the only one tonight gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied
Want my body (Gettin' bodied)
Won't you get me bodied? (Gettin' bodied)
If you want my body (I'm the only one tonight gettin' bodied)
Won't you get me bodied?
You see my body?
I gotta know, I'd like to know if you can get me bodied
I'm kinda tight, I'm feelin' right, I'd like to see somebody
I wanna let it out tonight
Wanna dance, wanna party, wanna be myself tonight

Can you get me bodied?
I wanna be myself tonight
Can you get me bodied?
I wanna be myself tonight
Don't you see my body?
I wanna let it out tonight
Wanna party, wanna dance, wanna be myself tonight

Baby, all I want
Is to let it go
Ain't no worries, no
We can dance all night
Get me bodied
That means come closer to me
While we grind to the beat
And your body is touchin' me

All I need
Is to let it be
Ain't no worries, no
Boy, dance with me
Feel my body
Don't stop, just come closer to me
While we grind to the beat
And your body is touchin' my body

Gettin' bodied
Ain't no shame 'cause I gotta get mine
I swing my hair and kick off my shoes
Come here, boy, and let me work on you

I ain't worried, doing me tonight
A little sweat ain't never hurt nobody
While y'all standin' on the wall
I'm the one tonight gettin' bodied
Gettin' bodied (Gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied (Gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied (I'm the only one tonight gettin' bodied)
Gettin' bodied
If you want my body (Gettin' bodied)
Won't you get me bodied? (Gettin' bodied)




If you want my body (I'm the only one tonight gettin' bodied)
Won't you get me bodied? Hey

This is a black american tribute to Fosse.

Beyonce had them popping on point. It has more of a black culture swag added to it than Bob Fosse.

When she incorporates traditional black party dances it's officially a mix of both cultures.

Consider it an update to Fosse and not plagarism. In fact I believe it's a genius homage.

Even in the music you hear old style musical motifs from movies like sweet charity mixed with southern hip hip hop/black club sounds. Like chants and antiphone everywhere.

Mad respect for Beyonce.



@jakhammer4209

U slim. You need for your man to play this 4 you in the line at Häagen-Dazs.
Git him body.
Git him body.
Git him BODY!
Work ya fork & get him body!

I would feed you macaroni n cheese.
Give ya Rocky Road N Cream ice cream for desert! But I'm a chubby chaser.

That was the YOUNG ME.

NOW?? Now is the time to be ATHLETIC. On some Venus & Serena stuff!

Walk your walk. Jog your jog.
Dance with Bey. Stay HEALTHY

I love the "B'Day" era the most. Beyoncé is singing in her soprano range and/or her highest range on nearly every song... and the beats were just dope!

@brandonbowers2932

table kun I know she's a mezzo lol... I DID comment "and/or her highest range" #tryagain

@brandonbowers2932

@annettejenkins383

Brandon Bowers No disrespect and This is not specifically for you- just the first I can reply to. The problem nowadays is there's Supposedly a category and term for everyone. Not so. Even with voice- James Browns confused and broke that mold many years before Bey!!!
