Scene Three: Beyoncé
Beyoncé Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

To the left, to the left
To the left, to the left

Mmm, to the left, to the left
Everything you own in a box to the left
In the closet, that's my stuff
Yes, if I bought it, please, don't touch
And keep talking that mess--that's fine
But could you walk and talk at the same time?
And it's my name that's on that Jag
So remove your bags; let me call you a cab

Standing in the front yard tellin' me how I'm such a fool
Talkin' 'bout
How I'll never ever find a man like you
You got me twisted

[Chorus]
You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I could have another you in a minute
Matter fact, he'll be here in a minute, baby

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I can have another you by tomorrow
So don't you ever for a second get to thinkin'
You're irreplaceable

So go ahead and get gone
Call up that chick and see if she's home
Oops, I bet you thought that I didn't know
What did you think I was putting you out for?

Because you was untrue
Rollin' her around in the car that I bought you
Baby, drop them keys
Hurry up before your taxi leaves

Standing in the front yard tellin' me how I'm such a fool
Talkin' 'bout
How I'll never ever find a man like you
You got me twisted

[Chorus]

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I will have another you by tomorrow
So don't you ever for a second get to thinkin'
You're irreplaceable

So since I'm not your everything
How about I'll be nothing
Nothing at all to you
Baby, I won't shed a tear for you (I won't shed a tear)
I won't lose a wink of sleep
'Cause the truth of the matter is
Replacing you is so easy

To the left, to the left
To the left, to the left
Mmm, to the left, to the left
Everything you own in a box to the left
To the left, to the left

Don't you ever for a second get to thinkin'
You're irreplaceable

[Chorus]

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I can have another you by tomorrow
So don't you ever for a second get to thinkin'

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I could have another you in a minute
Matter fact, he'll be here in a minute
You can pack all your bags--we finished

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me ('cause you made your bed; now lay in it)
I can have another you by tomorrow





Don't you ever for a second get to thinking
You're irreplaceable

Overall Meaning

"Scene Three: Beyoncé" is the third track on Beyoncé's second studio album, "B'Day", released in 2006. The song is a fierce break-up anthem where Beyoncé is telling her partner that she is done with him and he needs to leave as soon as possible. The repeated phrase "to the left, to the left" is a clear instruction for him to pack his bags and go. She's confident in herself and knows that she can have someone else in a heartbeat. The lyrics are cutting and straightforward, with lines like "You can pack all your bags - we finished". She's not letting him get away with any excuses or tears, and it's clear that she's done with the relationship.


The song's chorus is the most memorable part with the line, "You must not know 'bout me". It's a powerful statement where Beyoncé is saying that her partner doesn't know how strong and independent she is. She's telling him that he's replaceable and that he shouldn't think otherwise. The song has a strong, empowering message for anyone going through a break-up. It shows that even in a difficult and emotional situation, you can still hold your head high and move on.


Line by Line Meaning

To the left, to the left
Moving everything to the left side


Everything you own in a box to the left
All of your belongings are in a box on the left side


In the closet, that's my stuff
The stuff in the closet belongs to me


Yes, if I bought it, please, don't touch
Please don't touch anything that I bought


And keep talking that mess--that's fine
It's okay if you keep talking nonsense


But could you walk and talk at the same time?
Can you multitask?


And it's my name that's on that Jag
My name is on the Jag


So remove your bags; let me call you a cab
Please leave and I'll call a cab for you


Standing in the front yard tellin' me how I'm such a fool
You're outside in the front telling me how foolish I am


Talkin' 'bout How I'll never ever find a man like you
You're saying that I won't find anyone like you


You got me twisted
You're confusing me


You must not know 'bout me
You don't know about me


I could have another you in a minute
I can find someone like you in no time


Matter fact, he'll be here in a minute, baby
Actually, he'll be here soon


So go ahead and get gone
You can leave now


Call up that chick and see if she's home
Call up that girl and see if she's available


Oops, I bet you thought that I didn't know
You thought I didn't know


What did you think I was putting you out for?
Do you understand why I'm kicking you out?


Because you was untrue
You were not truthful


Rollin' her around in the car that I bought you
You're driving her around in the car I bought


Baby, drop them keys
Give me your keys


Hurry up before your taxi leaves
Go quickly before your cab leaves


So since I'm not your everything
Since I'm not your world


How about I'll be nothing
I'll just be nothing to you


Nothing at all to you
Absolutely nothing to you


Baby, I won't shed a tear for you (I won't shed a tear)
I won't cry for you


I won't lose a wink of sleep
I won't lose any sleep over you


'Cause the truth of the matter is
The truth is


Replacing you is so easy
Finding someone else like you is easy


Don't you ever for a second get to thinkin' You're irreplaceable
Don't ever think that you can't be replaced


You can pack all your bags--we finished
You can pack all your things; our relationship is over


('cause you made your bed; now lay in it)
You made your choices, and now you can deal with the consequences

I think BEYONCE should break the record of having certain amount of songs in an album...why not release a album with 80 songs in it. We can never have enough of Queen B!! :)

21locusts

but for this album specifically i think it's good to keep it as small as she did because there was gonna be a video for EVERY song on the album and shooting 80 videos would be VERY hard and tiring to do.

Tied

+21locusts lmao. Could you imagine 80 videos. 😂😂😂😂😂😂

21locusts

+TheMrAmiel that would be heaven (for us)

Taylor Winter

"Beyonce is the shit" period! 

love di choreo

I have a new found respect for Beyonce's liberation

jjjonse

This album is totally dope!

Carla Diniz

Beyoncé I Love You
