Say My Name Lyrics


Darkchild '99

[Chorus]
Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say “baby I love you”
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' me baby
Why the sudden change?
Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say “baby I love you”
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' me baby
Better say my name

[Verse 1: Beyoncé]
Any other day, I would call,
 you would say (Say)
"Baby, how's your day?"
But today, it ain't the same
Every other word is "uh-huh, yeah ok" (Uh huh, ok)
Could it be that you are at the crib with another lady?
If you took it there, first of all, let me say (Let me say)
I am not the one to sit around, and be played
So prove yourself to me, if I'm the girl that you claim (Claim)
Why don't you say the things that you said to me yesterday?

[Pre-Chorus: Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé]
I know you say that I am assuming things
Something's going down that's the way it seems
Shouldn't be no reason why you're acting strange
If nobody's holding you back from me
'Cause I know how you usually do
When you say everything to me times two
Why can't you just tell the truth?
If somebody's there then tell me who

[Chorus (Beyoncé)]
Say my name, say my name (Say my name, is around you)
If no one is around you, say 
“baby I love you“ (love you)
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' 
me baby (baby, yeah, hey yeah)
Why the sudden change?
Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say 
“baby I love you” (yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
If you ain't runnin' game (no no no no, no no)
Say my name, say my name
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' me baby
Better say my name

[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
What is up with this?
Tell the truth, who you with?
How would you like it if I came over with my clique?
Don't try to change it now, saying you gotta bounce (Bounce)
When two seconds ago, you said you just got in the house

(The house)
It's hard to believe that you are at home by yourself
When I just heard the voice, heard the voice of someone else
Just this question, why do you feel you gotta lie? (Feel, lie)
Gettin' caught up in your game, when you cannot say my name

[Pre-Chorus: Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé]
I know you say that I am assuming things
Something's going down that's the way it seems
Shouldn't be no reason why you're acting strange
If nobody's holding you back from me
'Cause I know how you usually do
When you say everything to me times two
Why can't you just tell the truth?
If somebody's there then tell me who

[Chorus (Beyoncé)]
Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say “baby I love you”
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name (say my name)
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' me baby
Why the sudden change?
Say my name, say my name (Say my name)
If no one is around you, say “baby I love you” 
(If ain't nothing changed, oh ooh)
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name (Baby, say my name)
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' me baby (woah)
Better say my name (oh yeah)

[Bridge: Beyoncé (DarkChild)]
(Where my ladies at?)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (Can you say that? Come on)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (All the girls say)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (I can't)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (Break it down)
Ooh, ooh, woah
(Uh, uh-uh, D-C, take it to the bridge, come on)

[Pre-Chorus: Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé]
I know you say that I am assuming things
Something's going down that's the way it seems
Shouldn't be no reason why you're acting strange
If nobody's holding you back from me
'Cause I know how you usually do
When you say everything to me times two
Why can't you just tell the truth?
If somebody's there then tell me who

[Chorus (Beyoncé)]
Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say 
“baby I love you” (If no one is around you, call me your boo)
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name (And tell me what you like to do, woah, oh)
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' me baby
Why the sudden change?
Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say “baby I love you”
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' me baby (Shady, baby)
Better say my name

Say my name, say my name
If no one is around you, say 
"baby I love you" (say "baby I love you")
If you ain't runnin' game
Say my name, say my name (say my name)
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin' me baby (say my name)
Why the sudden change? (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Say my name, say my name (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
If no one is around you, say “baby I love you” 
(yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah)
If you ain't runnin' game (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Say my name, say my name (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
You actin' kinda shady, ain't callin'
 me baby (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Better say my name
