Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter (born September 4, 1981) is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child, and rose to fame in the late 1990s as lead singer of R&B girl-group Destiny's Child. Managed by her father, Mathew Knowles, the group became one of the world's best-selling girl groups of all time. Their hiatus saw the release of Beyoncé's debut album, Dangerously in Love (2003), which established her as a solo artist worldwide, earned five Grammy Awards and featured the Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles "Crazy in Love" and "Baby Boy". more »

I said yes to your number and yes to you dating me
Yes we can be together but you gotta wait for me
The first time I say no, it's like I never said yes (it's like I never said yes)
I said yes we can be together, yes you can stay with me
But when I say no not tonight, you actin' so ungratefully
The first time I say no, it's like I never said yes (it's like I never said yes)

You was on the wall
I was with my crew
You was watchin' me baby
I was watchin' you
Slowly you walked over
I maintained my cool
You said hello to me, I
Said hello to you
You ask me where I'm from
I asked you what you do
You somehow intrigued me
I thought you were so cool
Somewhere between hi and goodbye
I felt so comfortable
I felt like we could talk all night
So I gave my number to you

I said yes to your number and yes to you dating me
Yes we can be together but you gotta wait for me
The first time I say no, it's like I never said yes (it's like I never said yes)
I said yes we can be together, yes you can stay with me
But when I say no not tonight, you actin' so ungratefully
The first time I say no, it's like I never said yes (it's like I never

Certainly you can call me baby
I love to hear from you
Yes of course you can come and see me boy 
I wanna get to know you more, sure I'm feelin' you
No baby, not yet, we can't take that next step
Why you getting so upset, boy you 
Act as though I never told you yes before
You are so ungrateful

You was at my house
I was sittin on my couch
You was really buggin' so I 
Told you to get out
I had been misjudging you
You had a lotta nerve, you
Too damn old to be so immature, I hope you learn
You said I move too slow, I
I showed you to the door
You said you'd call me later
I said don't call no more
It is cool if you can't wait for me
I'm glad you let me know
'Cause you show me your true face baby
The first time I said no

I said yes to your number and yes to you dating me
Yes we can be together but you gotta wait for me
The first time I say no, it's like I never said yes (it's like I never said yes)
I said yes we can be together, yes you can stay with me
But when I say no not tonight, you actin' so ungratefully
The first time I say no, it's like I never said yes (it's like I never said yes before)

I said yes to your number and yes to you dating me
Yes we can be together but you gotta wait for me
The first time I say no, it's like I never said yes (it's like I never
