About Girl

"Girl" is a song recorded by American girl group Destiny's Child. Columbia Records released it as the third single from the group's fourth studio album Destiny Fulfilled (2004) on April 25, 2005. The band co-wrote the song with Darkchild, Ric Rude, Angela Beyince, Sean Garrett, and Patrick "9th Wonder" Douthit; the latter co-produced it with band members Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. Sampling "Ocean of Thoughts and Dreams" by The Dramatics, the soul song was written about an abusive relationship Rowland went through during the time of writing. The song received mostly positive reviews by music critics who praised its composition and lyrical content. "Girl" had a moderate success in the US and across most European countries in comparison to the group's other singles; in the former it peaked at number 23 on its Billboard Hot 100 chart and was certified gold. It was more successful in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia where it peaked inside the top ten on the countries' respective singles charts. A music video for the song was directed by Bryan Barber and it depicted a story inspired by Sex and the City. The song was performed live by the band in 2005 at three televised appearances as well as during their final tour Destiny Fulfilled... and Lovin' It. In 2015, "Girl" was sampled on "The Girl Is Mine" by British music duo 99 Souls.

Take a minute girl come sit down
And tell us what's been happening
In your face I can see the pain
Don't you try to convince us that you're happy
We've seen this all before
But he's taking advantage of your passion
Because we've come too far
For you to feel alone
You don't let him walk all over your heart
I'm telling you

Girl, I can tell you been crying
And you needing someone to talk to
Girl, I can tell he's been lying
And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you
Girl, you don't have to be hiding
Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
Don't you know that we love you

See what y'all don't know about him
Is I can't let him go because he needs me
It ain't really him its stress from the job
And I ain't making it easy
I know you see him bugging most of the time
But I know he be tired he don't mean it
It gets hard sometimes
But I need my man
I don't think ya'll understand
I'm telling you

Girl, I can tell you been crying
And you needing someone to talk to
Girl, I can tell he's been lying
And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you
Girl, you don't have to be hiding
Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
Don't you know that we love you

Girl, I can tell you been crying
And you needing someone to talk to
Girl, I can tell he's been lying
And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you
Girl, you don't have to be hiding
Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
Don't you know that we love you

Girl, take a good look at yourself
He got you going through hell
We ain't never seen you down like this
What you mean you don't need us to help
We known each other too well

Girl,
You're my girl, we're your girls
Don't you know that we love you

Girl, I can tell you been crying
And you needing someone to talk to
Girl, I can tell he's been lying
And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you
Girl, you don't have to be hiding
Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
Don't you know that we love you

Girl, I can tell you been crying
And you needing somebody to talk to
Girl, I can tell he's been lying
And pretending that he's faithful and he loves you
Girl, you don't have to be hiding
Don't you be ashamed to say he hurt you
I'm your girl, you're my girl, we're your girls
Don't you know that we love you
