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 up 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 rubbin' on it, rub-rubbin'
If you scared, call that reverend, boy I'm drinking
Get my brain right
Armand de Brignac, gangster wife
Louis sheets, he sweat it out, like washrags, he wet it up , boy I'm drinking
I'm singin' on the mic to my boy toys
Then I fill the tub up halfway then riding with my surfboard
Surfboard, surfboard
Grainin' on that wood, grainin', grainin' on that wood
I'm swerving on that, swerving, swerving on that
Big body been servin' all this
Swerve, surfin' all in 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 up in that club
Drunk in love

We be all night, love, love
We be all night, love, love (I'm nice right now, 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
Time to back up all that mouth
That you had all in the car
Talkin' about you the baddest bitch thus far
Talkin' about you be reppin' that Third
I wanna see all that shit that I heard
Know I sling Clint Eastwood
Hope you can handle this curve, uh
Foreplay in a foyer, fucked up my Warhol
Slid the panties right to the side
Ain't got the time to take drawers off on sight
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, Anna Mae!" Said, "Eat the cake, Anna Mae!" I'm nice!
For y'all to reach these heights
You gon' need G3, 4, 5, 6 flights, sleep tight
We sex again in the morning
Your breasteses is my breakfast, we goin' in

We be all night (we be all night) love, love
We be all night, love, love

I'm never tired, never tired
I been sippin', that's the only thing, that's keepin' me on fire, we on fire
Didn't mean to spill that liquor all on my attire
I've been drinkin', 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

    My InterpretationThis 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.

    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.

    Song FactThis is an over romanticized song about having to take a crap. It's about any kind of shit taking experience, as long as it's epic, profound and violent. The kind of shit that changes your life forever. A nails dug in, raking across your bleeding sweating thighs dump. Teeth clamped down on a rolled up bible, heart on the inside out death camp rape down murder dump. A mike Tyson vs That pig who shot mike brown "hands up I cant fucking breath" dump. A parade of unicorns and drunken clowns. A pyroclastic juggernaut of underripe and oversized Chilean cantaloupes mixed with battery acid and rusty nails. A dump that cleanses your soul. Redemption dump. New beginnings and hope, until tomorrow, and that cup of office joe.

    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"
