"Miss Independent" as written by Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Eriksen and Shaffer Smith....
Yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Oh is something about
Just something about the way she move
I can't figure it out
Is something about her

Say, oh is something about
Kinda woman that want you but don't need you
Hey, I can't figure it out
Is something about her

Cause she walk like a boss
Talk like a boss
Manicure nails just sent the pedicure off
She's fly effortlessly

And she move like a boss
Do what a boss
Do, she got me thinking about getting involved
That's the kinda girl I need

She got her own thing
That's why I love her
Miss independent
Won't you come and spend a little time
She got her own thing
That's why I love her
Miss independent
Oh, the way she shine
Miss independent

Yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Ooh there's something about
Kinda woman that can do for herself
I look at her and it makes me proud
There's something about her

Something ooh so sexy about
Kinda woman that don't even need my help
She said she got it, she got it (she said she got it, she got it)
No doubt, there's something about her (there's somethin' about her)

Cause she work like a boss
Play like a boss
Car and the crib she 'bout to pay 'em both off
And bills are payed on time, yeah
She made for a boss
Only a boss
Anything less she telling them to get lost
That's the girl that's on my mind

She got her own thing
That's why I love her
Miss independent
Won't you come and spend a little time
She got her own thing
That's why I love her
Miss independent
Oh, the way she shine
Miss independent

Her favorite thing to say, don't worry I got it
And everything she got best believe she bought it
She goin' steal my heart ain't no doubt about it, girl
You're everything I need
Said you're everything I need

Yeah, yeah yeah,
Yeah yeah,
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah.

She got her own thing
That's why I love her
Miss independent
Won't you come and spend a little time
She got her own thing
That's why I love her
Miss independent
Oh, the way she shine
Miss independent

Miss independent
That's why I love her

    General CommentI also agree...He's after a girl with a bit of class...
    Also he likes the fact she can look after herself...and shes with him because she wants to be not because she needs to be....
    Shes doesnt need no guy to look after and provide for her because she does all that herself.....Fabulous song...x

    General Commentwhenever i hear this song i can't help feeling it's subtley quite sexist. somehow it seems like he's implying women who are 'independant' are very rare. maybe it's just me... anyway not a fan of the song

    General CommentDope. Ne-yo is a great singer. Great topic. An Independant woman is something all us men want. I got mine, My woman takes care of me. And I gotta say she's way more independant than me, word up.

    General CommentWell, lately in society, there has been an epidemic of women being unable to exist on their own, thinking they need to have another source of income, and emotionally need someone else to go out into the world. I think what Ne-Yo is trying to say that he has found a woman who is unlike this, and it excites him.
