"Why Don't You Love Me?" as written by Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, Angela Beyince, Solange Knowles, Eddie Smith Iii, Jesse Rankins and Jonathan Wells....
[Intro]

Now, now, now, honey
You better sit down and look around
Cause you must've bumped yo' head
And I love you enough to talk some sense back into you, baby
I'd hate to see you come home, me the kids
And the dog is gone
Check my credentials...
I give you everything you want everything you need
Even your friends say I'm a good woman
All I need to know is why?

Why don't you love me?
Tell me baby
Why don't you love me?
when I make me so damn easy to love
Why don't you need me?
Tell me baby
Why don't you need me?
when I make me so damn easy to need

I got beauty, I got class
I got style, and I got it
And you don't even care to care
I even got money in my bank account
Don't have to ask no one to help me out
You don't even notice that

Why don't you love me?
Tell me baby
Why don't you love me?
when I make me so damn easy to love
Why don't you need me?
Tell me baby
Why don't you need me?
when I make me so damn easy to need

I got booty, I got heart
Hit my head in your books, I'm shopper
But you don't care to know I'm smart
I got moves in your bedroom
He'd be happy with the nice plans I do
But you don't seem to be in tuned

Why don't you love me?
Tell me baby
Why don't you love me?
when I make me so damn easy to love
Why don't you need me?
Tell me baby
Why don't you need me?
when I make me so damn easy to need

There's nothing not to love about me
No, no, there's nothing not to love about me
I'm so lovely
There's nothing not to need about me
No, no, there's nothing not to need about me
Maybe you're just not the one
Or maybe you're just playing...

DUMB!

    Lyric CorrectionNow, now, n-now, honey, (why?)
    You better sit down and look around (Why? Why?),
    Cause you must've bumped yo' head! (Dumb...)
    And I love you enough to talk some sense back into you, baby. (You..)
    I'd hate to see you come home (love...),
    Me, the kids, and the dog is gone. (me...)
    Check my credentials:
    I give you everything you want, everything you need; (Everything you need - Why?)
    Even your friends say I'm a good woman! (Why?)
    Now, all I need to know is, why? (Why?)

    Why don't you love me? (Love me...)
    Tell me, baby, why don't you love me, (Why don't you love me?)
    When I make me so damn easy to love? (To love...)
    Wh-wh-wh-why don't you need me? (Need me...)
    Tell me, baby, why don't you need me, (Why don't you need me?)
    When I make me so damn easy to need? (To need, to need me...)

    I got beauty, I got class,
    I got style, and I got a... - huh!
    And you don't even care to care...
    Looka here. I even put money in the bank account,
    Don't have to ask no one to help me out;
    You don't even notice that....

    Why don't you love me? (Love me...)
    Tell me, baby, why don't you love me, (Why don't you love me?)
    When I make me so damn easy to love? (Easy, to love me, l-l-love me, love me)
    And why don't you need me? (Need me...)
    Tell me, baby, why don't you need me,
    When I make me so damn easy to need?

    I got beauty, I got heart;
    Keep my head in them books, I'm sharp!
    But you don't care to know I'm smart...
    Now, now, now, now, now, now, now,
    I got moves in your bedroom,
    Keep you happy with the nasty things I do,
    But you don't seem to be in tuned... (Ooh...)

    Why don't you love me? (Love me...)
    Tell me, baby, why don't you love me, (Why don't you love me?)
    When I make me so damn easy to love? (Easy, to love me, l-l-love me, love me)
    Hey, yeah... why don't you need me? (Need me...)
    Tell me, baby, why don't you need me,
    When I make me so damn easy to need?

    (Nothin' not to love about me...)
    There's nothing not to love about me;
    No, no, there's nothing not to love about me...
    (No, nothin' not to love about me...)
    I'm lovely...
    There's nothing not to need about me;
    No, no, there's nothing not to need about me...
    (Nothin' not to need about me!)
    Maybe you're just not the one,
    Or maybe you're just plain...

    DUMB! (DUMB! DUMB!)

    Song MeaningI believe it's pretty obvious how feminist the song is.
    It talks about how women want to be loved yet their men take them for granted...
    Super smart song with a powerful message!
