Well she thinks that she is drunk in love. That is what her song is about....
I've been drinking, I've been drinking
I get filthy when that liquor get into me
I've been thinking, I've been thinking
Why can't I keep my fingers off you, baby?
I want you, na na
Why can't I keep my fingers off you, baby?
I want you, na na

Cigars on ice, cigars on ice
Feeling like an animal with these cameras all in my grill
Flashing lights, flashing lights
You got me faded, faded, faded
Baby, I want you, na na
Can't keep your eyes off my fatty
Daddy, I want you, na na
Drunk in love, I want you

We woke up in the kitchen saying
"How the hell did this shit happen?"
Oh baby, drunk in love we be all night
Last thing I remember is our
Beautiful bodies grinding off in that club
Drunk in love

We be all night, love, love
We be all night, love, love

We be all night, and everything alright
No complaints for my body, so fluorescent under these lights
Boy, I'm drinking, walking in my l'assemblage
I'm grubbing on the rope, grubbing if you scared, call that ribbon
Boy, I'm drinking, get my brain right
I'm on the Cognac, gangster wife
Newer sheets, he'd swear that I like washed rags, he wet up
Boy, I'm drinking, I'm sinking on the mic 'til my boy toys
Then I fill the tub up halfway then riding with my surfboard
Surfboard, surfboard
Graining on that wood, graining, graining on that wood
I'm swerving on that, swerving, swerving on that big body Benz
Serving all this, swerv, surfing all of this good, good

We woke up in the kitchen saying
"How the hell did this shit happen?"
Oh baby, drunk in love we be all night
Last thing I remember is our
Beautiful bodies grinding off in that club
Drunk in love

We be all night, love, love
We be all night, love, love

Hold up
That D'USSÉ is the shit if I do say so myself
If I do say so myself, if I do say so myself
Hold up, stumble all in the house tryna backup all that mouth
That you had all in the car, talking 'bout you the baddest bitch thus far
Talking 'bout you be repping that verb, wanna see all that shit I heard
Know I sling Clint Eastwood, hope you can handle this curve
Foreplay in the foyer, fucked up my Warhol
Slid the panties right to the side
Ain't got the time to take draws off, on site
Catch a charge I might, beat the box up like Mike
In '97 I bite, I'm Ike, Turner, turn up
Baby no I don't play, now eat the cake, Annie Mae
Said, "Eat the cake, Annie Mae!"
I'm nice, for y'all to reach these heights we gon' need G3
4, 5, 6 flights, sleep tight
We sex again in the morning, your breasteses is my breakfast
We going in, we be all night

Love, love
We be all night, love, love

Never tired, never tired
I been sippin, that's the only thing keeping me on fire, me on fire
To me it's feeling like all of my entire life I've been drinking
Watermelon
I want your body right here, daddy I want you, right now
Can't keep your eyes off my fatty
Daddy I want you

We be all night, love, love
We be all night, love, love

    Song MeaningThis song is about having sex with someone. The line about filling the tub up half way and then riding on the waves with her surf board is really about how you fill the tub up half way when you're having sex with someone tub so you fill it up halfway and then sit on their "you know what" and then riding it. "Graining on that wood" is obviously talking about a hard cock going inside her.

    She's basically singing about getting drunk and having sex in a tub with Jay Z.

    "I've been drinking, watermelon" isn't about drinking cum, it's about drinking watermelon flavored vodka.

    She even said "gangster wife" to reference her marriage to Jay Z.

    My Opinion@johnnymike
    *dumbing
    *brainwashing
    *Warhol's first name is ANDY---maybe you should of looked him up while you were spell checking double entendre

    This song is street smart to the point where no one could have listened to the lyrics for the first time and known exactly what Beyonce was referring to so the comments about this being another "dumb, boring song about club hopping and sex" are basic.

    I'm willing to bet any amount of money that each and every one of us hums/sings/recites the opening lines " I've been drinkin, I've been drinkin.." when the song comes on. Let's ground ourselves a little. No one is above enjoying a popular song by Beyoncé and Jay-Z nonetheless.

    My InterpretationIn the bridge she says :" we woke up in the kitchen saying how the hell did this shit happen" she means her and Jay-Z had sex and they can't remember what happened or how it started. When she says she's been drinking watermelon she's talking about a drink called "WTRMLN WTR"
    (Watermelon water w/o the vowels) it's not alcohol but,it's almost like a Viagra for both genders. She doesn't mean cum,however her song "Blow" does talk about her and Jay-Z giving each other head. The infamous "surfboard" line talks about her getting in the tub w/ Jay-Z and having ride her "surfboard" which is JayZ's man parts. Graining on the wood is speaks of the same thing only adding a description of JayZ's arousal ("wood" = boner) Fatty means her butt,as in her butt is fat hence the word fatty. When JayZ says " your breastesses is my breakfast" he means he woke up to her breast and gave it a lick or too"

    General CommentThe fact that she's a married mom now makes her have to reach harder if she wants acceptance from her male audience . She no longer belongs to us and the fantasy/illusion is virtually non existent.

    General CommentSo sad to see yet another example of an ILLUMINATI SLAVE in pop culture (e.g., Katy Perry, Kesha Rose Sebert).

    That this song is popular only speaks to the dumming down of America and the brain-watching of teenagers, club goers, and pop culture in general, etc. Very sad.

    My uncle works for the IRS and he has told me for a FACT that her birth name is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles. Just FYI.

    Her lyrics in this song use a lot of double entendre (look it up, if you don't know what it means, you will see that I am RIGHT, lol).

    But more sinister, as with Katy Perry, her lyrics incorporate many masonic symbols: e.g., the surf board in the bath tub, the art work askew in the foyer (LOL how she brags about having a "Warhol" -- it is probably a counterfeit, which is certainly ironic since A. Warhol's prints, not sure how you spell his first name, aren't even that expensive, and you would think a MILLIONAIRE like Beyoncé Giselle Knowles could afford the "real deal" but let's leave that aside....). Other masonic symbols: the fancy liquor, the cigars on "ice" (hmmmm, wonder what she means by "ice"? Diamonds, anyone? LOL).

    My uncle has more information, but I cannot post it publicly.

    People should listen to Chopin or Beethoven and hear what GOOD music actually sounds like!

    Oh well, too bad.
