Lyrical Foolishness: Run The World (Girls)

5.23.2011

I have a like/dislike thing for Beyonce. Rarely do I like her hit singles which are typically the songs written solely by her. Single Ladies grated on my last nerve but I really liked If I Were A Boy and a few of the unreleased songs from her last CD. 

Her latest offering Run The World (Girls), is another one that caused me to scratch my head when it debuted. I have only heard the song once and that was one time too many. The epic (according to the masses) video will remain a mystery because I cannot bear to hear the song ever again. The lyrics are just awful. Banal and nonsensical rush to my mind as perfect adjectives for the lyrics of Run The World.

Mrs. Carter's self appointed patron saint of female empowerment schtick is getting old and repetitive. Take a gander at the stellar lyrics below and if you will excuse me, I'm going to go read a really thick book or maybe I'll get all up in some dude's grill and tell him he might think he freak this like I do...but he don't. Yeah. That does seem like the thing to do. And for the bitches who can't fade her, do they not run the world??? How can we girls determine if we are in fact a girl who runs the world or not??? Exactly who is included in this world of girl domination??? So many questions... :/
 
Girls, we run this mutha (yeah) - repeat 3 times
Girls, we run this mutha
Girls

Who run the world? Girls

Some of them men think they freak this like we do
But no they don’t
Make your check come at they neck
Disrespect us no they won’t
This goes out to all my girls that’s in the club rocking the latest
Who could buy it for themselves and get more money later
I think I need a barber
None of these bitches can fade me
I’m so good with this
I remind you I’m so hood with this
Boy I’m just playing
Come here baby
Hope you still like me
If you hate me
My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power our love we can devour
You’ll do anything for me

Who run the world? Girls

It’s hot up in here DJ don’t be scared to run this run this back
I’m repping for the girls who’re taking over the world have me raise a glass for the college grads
This goes out to all the women getting it in get on your grind
To other men that respect what I do please accept my shine
Boy you know you love it how we’re smart enough to make these millions
Strong enough to bear the children then get back to bidness
You better not play me oh come here baby
Hope you still like me if you hate me
My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power our love we can devour
You’ll do anything for me

Who run the world? Girls
Who are we
What we brought
The world
Who are we
What we brought
The world
Who are we
What do we brought
We brung the world
Who are we
What we brought
We brought the world
Who run the world? Girls

Yay. Girl Power.

Yeh Lyrical foolishness is right, did she write this mess?

I'm going to go out on a very short limb and say she wrote it.

Beyonce is too old to be writing and singing such foolishness. She is a married woman for goodness sake. Not many people like the song anyway. Her video is a Janet Jackson/Michel Jackson wonna be video.

Keiana I agree with you. She is entirely too old for these dumb lyrics. This is just the state of the music industry. Very little music and lots of image with no substance.

I am not feeling this song at all. And no matter how many times the radio and media try to shove it down my throat, it is one of her worst songs. I am looking forward to another single because this one is o_O. Kelly Rowland's Motivation is much better than this. :/
