If you're interested in my ethnicity, cool. If you want a guessing game and start rattling off stereotypical questions that you could easily google or randomly ask how to say something in Chinese, you can begin to fuck off.

ESL Lesson 02012014: Beyoncé - Drunk in Love (Explicit) ft. JAY Z

[Intro: Beyonce]
I've been drinking, I've been drinking
I get filthy when that liquor gets 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

[Verse 1: Beyonce]
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

[Hook: Beyonce]
We woke up in the kitchen saying
"How in hell did this shit happen?"
Oh baby, drunk in love we be all night
Last thing I remember is our
Beautiful bodies grinding off in that club
Drunk in love we be all night
Love, love
We be all night, love

[Verse 2: Beyonce]
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 rubbing on …
