About Beautiful Girls

"Beautiful Girls" is the debut single by reggae-influenced musician Sean Kingston from his eponymous debut; it was first released in 2007. The song samples Ben E. King's classic "Stand by Me". The song is about a boy who is suicidal (or rather "in denial" in the edited version) over the failure of his relationship with a "beautiful girl". It is Kingston's signature song. The music video featured actor Tom Hardy who became friends with Kingston whilst living in Los Angeles in his early years of acting. Rapper Lil Mama and actors Kenny Vibert and Lil' JJ are featured in the music video directed by Marcus Raboy.

Your way too beautiful girl
That's why it'll never work
You'll have me suicidal, suicidal
When you say it's over
Damn all these beautiful girls
They only wanna do your dirt
They'll have you suicidal, suicidal
When they say it's over

See it started at the park
Used to chill after dark
Oh when you took my heart
That's when we fell apart

'Cause we both thought
That love last forever (last forever)
They say we're too young
To get ourselves sprung

Oh we didn't care
We made it very clear
And they also said
That we couldn't last together (last together)

See it's very divine, girl
You're one of a kind
But you mush up my mind
You ought to get declined
Oh Lord
My baby is driving me crazy

Your way too beautiful girl
That's why it'll never work
You'll have me suicidal, suicidal
When you say it's over
Damn all these beautiful girls
They only wanna do your dirt
They'll have you suicidal, suicidal
When they say it's over

It was back in '99
Watching movies all the time
Oh when I went away
For doing my first crime

And I never thought
That we was gonna see each other (see each other)
And then I came out
Mami moved me down South

Oh I'm with my girl
Who I thought was my world
It came out to be
That she wasn't the girl for me (girl for me)

See it's very divine, girl
You're one of a kind
But you mush up my mind
You ought to get declined
Oh Lord
My baby is driving me crazy

Your way too beautiful girl
That's why it'll never work
You'll have me suicidal, suicidal
When you say it's over
Damn all these beautiful girls
They only wanna do your dirt
They'll have you suicidal, suicidal
When they say it's over

Now we are fussing
And now we are fighting
Please tell me why
I am feeling slighted

And I don't know
How to make it better (make it better)
You're dating other guys
You're telling me lies

Oh I can't believe
What I'm seeing with my eyes
I'm losing my mind
And I don't think it's clever (think it's clever)

You're way too beautiful girl
That's why it'll never work
You'll have me suicidal, suicidal, suicidal, suicidal
