Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh
Diamond, diamond
Shinin', shinin'
Ooh boy
You so fine
Gotta be the finest thing
That I've seen in my life
I will pay whatever
Just to get a better view
And yeah, your body looks so sick
I think I caught the flu

Look at you
Look at you
Be my sweetie
Be my honey tonight

Look at you
Look at you
Be my sweetie
Be my honey tonight

'Cause you're beautiful
(Drop dead)
Beautiful

You're some kind of fine

Boy, you know
You're beautiful
I know you heard it before
Boy, you know
You broke the mold
Nobody even come close
Nobody even come close
You're some kind of fine

You must be B-I-G
Because you got me hypnotized
Whoever said that beauty on the inside is a liar
'Cause, what I'm looking at right now
Would make a big girl cry
So fasten up your seat belt
It's gon' be a bumpy ride

Look at you
Look at you
Be my sweetie
Be my honey tonight

Look at you

Be my honey tonight

'Cause you're beautiful

Oh, I think I like you

Boy, boy
Look at you
I wanna get, get, get next to you
Got me kinda hot
But, I ain't sweatin' you
Steamin' like like a pot full of vegetables

Boy, boy
Look at me
I know you wanna touch
But it ain't for free
I don't need your money
I just want your D
Boy, come over here with your sexy ass

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Britney Spears's song Beautiful are about how stunning the object of the singer’s admiration is. She describes his beauty in the most superlative terms, stating that he is “the finest thing” that she has ever seen in her life, and that his body looks so good that she thinks she has “caught the flu”. The chorus repeats that the boy is beautiful, teasingly telling him to drop dead, while the bridge goes on to suggest that the singer would be willing to pay money just to get a better view of him. The rapper Sabi appears for the final verse, suggesting that the feeling of attraction in the song goes both ways.


Overall, the song is about being swept away by the beauty and physical magnetism of another person. It is written in a playful, teasing tone, which stands in contrast to some of the more intense romantic ballads that Spears has become known for. The song emphasizes physical beauty, suggesting that it is just as important as any other quality that a person can possess.
