"My Boo (feat. Alicia Keys)" as written by Manuel Lonnie Jr. Seal, Barry White, Adonis Shropshire, Alicia Keys, Jermaine Dupri and Usher Raymond....
There's always that one person
That will always have your heart
You'll never see it coming
'Cause you're blinded from the start
Know that you're that one for me
It's clear for everyone to see
Oh baby ooh you'll always be my boo

I don't know bout cha'll
But I know about us and uh
This is the only way
We know how to rock
I don't know bout cha'll
But I know about us and uh
This is the only way
We know how to rock

Do you remember girl
I was the one who gave you your first kiss
'Cause I remember girl
I was the one who said put your lips like this
Even before all the fame and
People screaming your name
Girl I was there and you were my baby

[Chorus]
It started when we were younger girl
You were mine my boo
Now another brother's taking over
But its still in your eyes my boo
Even though we used to argue it's alright
I know we haven't seen each other
In awhile but you will always be my boo

I was in love with you when we were younger
You were mine my boo
And I see it from time to time
I still feel like my boo
And I can see it no matter
How I try to hide my boo
Even though there's another man who's in my life
You will always be my boo

Yes I remember boy
'Cause after we kissed
I could only think about your lips
Yes I remember boy
The moment I knew
You were the one
I could spend my life with
Even before all the fame
And people screaming your name
I was there and you were my baby

[Chorus]

I was in love with you when we were younger
You were mine my boo
And I see it from time to time
I still feel like my boo
And I can see it no matter
How I try to hide my boo
Even though there's another man in my life
You will always be my boo

My oh, my oh my oh, my oh, my boo
My oh, my oh my oh, my oh, my boo

[Chorus]

I don't know bout cha'll
But I know about us and uh
This is the only way
We know how to rock
I don't know bout cha'll
But I know about us and uh
This is the only way
We know how to rock

    General Commentthis song's perfecccct !

    IT'S ABOUT FIRST LOVE !
    and no matter how many people here will try to disagree with me,
    it's true.

    THE FIRST PERSON YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH, YOU WILL ALLLLWWWAAAYYYS LOVE !
    you get jelous when they start seeing other people, its impossible to be truly happy for them, heaps of things remind you of them, and you cant forget, as much as you want to,

    you cant.

    General Commenti think that this song relates to everyone at some point in their life. everyone has that one person they have been in love with for so long and no matter what happens "you will always be my boo." i know i have it and he's actually the one that introduced me to this song. even though we're not together anymore we will always be in love with one another, we both agree to that. i love you, avi. usher - great song, great song.

    General Commenti totally agree with whoee, but besides that:

    the "first kiss" part of the song is definetely just a metaphor, so it definetely doesnt have to be your first kiss that it relates to. it could be someone you met when you were 25, and it could still relate to you. and looking back on it, you will always love that person, but you didnt end up together. you're both okay with it, and you know that the love will never die.

    General CommentI can totally relate to this song right now. I think I will always have love for my first love; he will always be my boo. Things don`t always work out with the person you love so both people have to just move on with things. It sucks, but that`s life.
