"Irreplaceable" as written by Kasseem Dean, Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, Sean Garrett, Makeba Riddick, Angela Renee Beyince and Solange Knowles....
To the left, to the left
To the left, to the left
To the left, to the left

Everything you own in the 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 mine name that is on that tag
So remove your bags let me call you a cab

Standing in the front yard telling me
How I'm such a fool, talking about
How I'll never ever find a man like you
You got me twisted

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 thinking you're irreplaceable

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

Because you was untrue
Rolling her around in the car that I bought you
Baby you dropped them keys
Hurry up before your taxi leaves

Standing in the front yard telling me
How I am such a fool, talking about
How I'll never ever find a man like you
You got me twisted

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I can 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'll have another you by tomorrow
So don't you ever for a second
Get to thinking 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 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
To the left, to the left
Everything you own in the box to the left
To the left, to the left
Don't you ever for a second get
To thinking you're irreplaceable

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I can 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 thinking, baby

You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I can have another you in a minute
Matter fact he'll be here in a minute

You could pack all your things, we're finished
(You must not know 'bout me)
'Cause you made your bed, now lay in it
(You must not know 'bout me)
I can have another you by tomorrow
Don't you ever for a second
Get to thinking you're irreplaceable

    General CommentIts so strange at times when you come across good music like this.....
    It brings back old memories and truly speacking when my wife left me
    its was difficult to imagine the pain and all the good times we had
    share together...... and even though she's gone from my life she is still
    irreplaceble
    the song is great...... I love it.

    Song MeaningI think this song is mainly telling about someone that had given her world for someone she really loved, but he had been cheating on her back instead. She found it incredibly disappointing but she knows he's an unworthy jerk. She might have been in love with him but shw had to get over him. And she convinces both herself and that guy that he's easy to replace. Maybe, she's some girl next door who had rejected all other guys (probably ones who'd never break her heart) to be with him; it's not hard to get a guy chase after her. But she still even needs to ensure herself that she can fall for another guy instantly.

    I really understand this song; the very same thing once happened to me. I could have just walk away with another guy who seemed much better than him, but I chose him. And I gave him everything. And he eventually cheated on me. I know he's a jerk and thing.. And I know I could just walk away with some other guy.

    But this song is mainly about a broken heart, and be tough afterwards.

    General Commentagree with previous comments, it's v.catchy. It's about her throwing out her partner who's cheated on her and saying that he'll be easy to replace.
    I really like the 'you must no know bout me' lines
