"Cater 2 U" as written by Rodney Roy Jerkins, Robert Waller, Michelle Williams, Beyonce Knowles, Ricky Lewis and Kelendria Rowland....
Baby I see you working hard
I want to let you know I'm proud
Let you know that I admire what you do
The more if I need to reassure you, my life would
Be purposeless without you (yeah)
If I want it (got it)
When I ask you (you provide it)
You inspire me to be better
You challenge me for the better
Sit back and let me pour out my love letter

Let me help you
Take off your shoes
Untie your shoestrings
Take off your cufflinks (yeah)
What you want to eat boo (yeah)
Let me feed you
Let me run your bathwater
Whatever your desire, I'll supply ya
Sing you a song
Turn my game on
I'll brush your hair
Help you put your do rag on
Want a foot rub (yeah)
You want a manicure
Baby I'm yours I want to cater to you boy

Let me cater to you
Cause baby this is your day
Do anything for my man
Baby you blow me away
I got your slippers, your dinner, your dessert and so much more
Anything you want just let me cater to you
Inspire me from the heart
Can't nothing tear us apart
You're all I want in a man;
I put my life in your hands
I got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I want to cater to you

Baby I'm happy you're home
Let me hold you in my arms
I just want to take the stress away from you
Making sure that I'm doing my part (oh)
Boy is there something you need me to do (oh)
If you want it (I got it)
Say the word I (I will try it)
I know whatever I'm not fulfilling (oh)
No other woman is willing (oh)
I'm going to fulfill you mind, body and spirit

I promise you (promise you)
I'll keep myself up (oh)
Remain the same chick, you fell in love with(yeah)
I'll keep it tight, I'll keep my figure right
I'll keep my hair fixed, keep rocking the hottest outfits
When you come home late tap me on my shoulder
I'll roll over
Baby I heard you, I'm here to serve you
(I'm lovin' it, I'm lovin' it)
If it's love you need, to give it is my joy
All I want to do is cater to you boy

Let me cater to you
Cause baby this is your day
Do anything for my man
Baby you blow me away
I got your slippers, your dinner, your dessert and so much more
Anything you want just let me cater to you
Inspire me from the heart
Can't nothing tear us apart
You're all I want in a man;
I put my life in your hands
I got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I want to cater to you

I want to give you my life, my strength
My will to be here
That's the least I can do
Let me cater to you
Through the good (good)
The bad (through the bad)
The ups and downs (ups and downs)
I'll still be here for you
Let me cater to you
Cause you're beautiful(you're beautiful)
I love the way you are (you are)
Fulfill your every desire (desire)
Your wish is my command (command)
I want to cater to my man
Your heart (your heart)
So pure your love shines through (shines through)
The darkness we'll get through (so much)
So much of me is you (is you)
I want to cater to my man

Let me cater to you
Cause baby this is your day
Do anything for my man
Baby you blow me away
I got your slippers, your dinner, your dessert and so much more
Anything you want just let me cater to you
Inspire me from the heart
Can't nothing tear us apart
You're all I want in a man;
I put my life in your hands
I got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I want to cater to you

    General Commentwhat happened here??? this is awful, women are not here to serve men and "put on their do-rag " for them.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, definitely one of my favourites on Destiny Fulfilled. It doesn't take much to decipher the meaning. I don't think it's meant to be seen as 'women serving men' as talkischeap said, it's just that she wants to cater to him to show him how much she loves and appreciates him. It's not like he's forcing her.

    General CommentI have to admit that when I first really listened to the lyrics of this song, I was shocked. I would never cater to a man in this manner, and I pity the woman who would. Still, overall, it's a beautiful song.

    General CommentI'm gonna add to what teardrop was saying...the song is definitely about a woman showing her man how much she loves and appreciates him. I think the song is supposed to have this understanding of the woman is giving back what she has been receiving. So her man is catering to her and now it's her turn to cater to him. It's all about a mutual effort.

    General CommentI can see that the song is suppose to be about loving someone so much that you'll do everything and anything for them but it's poorly worded and just comes off as being subserviant to your man and doing everything for him. be a good girl, keep thin and look good so your man looks good, cook his food, run his bath and all that crap.
    i see the original meaning but the one that the majority is going to see is 'girls do what your guy wants' and it disgusts me.

    General CommentCool song, cool video, cool everything. Girls who don't like this song are lying.
    When i first heard it i was laughing as it is by far the most controversial song on the album especially in the day and age we are in today. I doubt they meant this or are trying to be ironic since both kelly and beyonce have shown that they want to be percieved as the family type. but they are far too young for this and could have milked their old image for many an album before releasing this. still a cool song though. girls, you know you love it.
