"Countdown" as written by Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, Cainon Lamb, Julie Frost, Nathan B Morris, Wanya Jermaine Morris, Michael Bivens, Terius Nash, Shea Taylor and Esther Dean....
Boy, oh, killing softly and I'm still falling
Still the one I need, I'll always be with you
Oh, you got me open, don't ever let me go
Say you're real out of your block
If you leave me you're out of your mind

My baby is a (ten)
We dressing through the (nine)
He pick me up with (eight)
Make me feel so lucky (seven)
He kiss me in his (six)
We be making love in (five)
Still the one I do this (four)
I'm trying to make a (three)
From that (two)
He still the (one)

There's ups and downs in this love
Got a lot to learn and it's love
Through the good and the bad, still got love
Dedicated to the one I love, hey

Still love the way he talk, still love the way I sing
Still love the way he rock them black diamonds in that chain
Still all up on each other, ain't a damn thing change
My girls can't tell me nothing, I'm gone in the brain

I'm all up under him like it's cold, winter time
All up in the kitchen in my heels, dinner time
Do whatever that it takes, he got a winner's mind
Give it all to him, meet him at the finish line

Me and my boo and my boo boo riding
All up in that black with his chick right beside him
Ladies, if you love your man show you the fliest
Grind up on it, girl, show him how you ride it

Me and my boo and my boo boo riding
All up in that black with his chick right beside him
Ladies, if you love your man show you the fliest
Grind up on it, girl, show him how you ride it

Oh, killing me softly and I'm still falling
Still the one I need, I'll always be with you
Oh, you got me open, don't ever let me go
Say you're real out of your block
If you leave me you're out of your mind

My baby is a (ten)
We dressing through the (nine)
He pick me up with (eight)
Make me feel so lucky (seven)
He kiss me in his (six)
We be making love in (five)
Still the one I do this (four)
I'm trying to make a (three)
From that (two)
He still the (one)

Yup, I put it on him, it ain't nothing that I can't do
Yup, I buy my own, if he deserve it, buy his shit too
All up in the store, shorty, tricking if I want to
All up in the store, shorty, fly as we want to

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Damn I think I love that boy
Do anything for that boy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Now I'll never be the same
You and me until the end

Me and my boo and my boo boo riding
All up in that black with his chick right beside him
Ladies, if you love your man show you the fliest
Grind up on it, girl, show him how you ride it

Me and my boo and my boo lip locking
All up in the back because the chicks keep blocking
All that gossip in ten years stop it
London speed it up, Houston rock it

Oh, killing me softly and I'm still falling
Still the one I need, I just wanna be with you
Oh, you got me open, don't ever let me go
Say you're real out of your block
If you leave me you're out of your mind

My baby is a (ten)
We dressing through the (nine)
He pick me up with (eight)
Make me feel so lucky (seven)
He kiss me in his (six)
We be making love in (five)
Still the one I do this (four)
I'm trying to make a (three)
From that (two)
He still the (one)

    My InterpretationSo I just heard this song for the first time a few hours ago and thought it was completely stupid, but it really grew on me after i read the lyrics so I like it now, lol. Either way, I was reading the chorus where it says "I'm tryna make a (3) from the (2)" and at first I just though it was a filler line, like the line from the "doe, a deer" song that says "la, a note to follow so", but it just dawned on me that maybe she meant she was trying to make a (3) from the (2), like make the two of them become three, like have a baby! ...Maybe I'm reading into it too much, but that's just what I thought.

    General CommentAs soon as i heard it thats what i thought too. preparing the world for her belly.
    she says i'm tryna make us three from the two. which makes more sense. i wish it said he pick me up at 8 instead of he pick me up we ate.. it makes more sense. and i wish there were more songs like this and end of time. such a slow album. its ok i guess.

    General CommentI really like the chorus idea with that countdown! The only one I'm confused about is 'he kiss me in his 6' .... does any one know what that means?

    General Comment^I thought maybe it's sposed to sound like "seat" (which is still stretching). Maybe it's sposed to mean "he kiss me in his sex"?

    Does anyone know what we dressin' to the (9) is supposed to mean?

    General CommentAs for what dressed to the nine means... phrases.org.uk/meanings/…

    And I imagine the kissed me in his 6 is a reference to a car. Probably a BMW 6 series.

    General Commentwhat does the phrase "Say it real loud if you fly" mean?
    and what does the "boo" mean?
    I'm not a native speaker so don't mind of my questions sound a little silly!
