Irreplaceable Lyrics

To the left,To the left
To the left,To the left
To the left,To the left

Everything you own in the box to the left
In the closet that's my stuff - Yes
If I bought it nigga please don't touch
And keep talking that mess, that's fine

    If you watch the video, the song is about her husband. He has been cheating on her and she has finally decided to kick him out. He is telling her that she will never be able to replace him, but she is telling him that she already has.

    I think this song is about that a guy thinks that's she's doing the wrong thing in breakin' up with him. That she would not find anyone like him again.
    "standin' in the front yard telling me how I 'm such a fool
    Talking 'bout I'll never ever find a man like you"

    But she says that he's wrong. That she doesn't care about him. That she can find someone like him anywhere

    "I could have another you in a minute"

    and that he should never think that he's Irreplaceable

    "And don't you ever 4 a second get to thinkin, you're irreplaceable"

    I think it may be about a woman giving a man the boot. The woman doesn't need him but he must think she does. "You must not know about me, I can have another you in a minute. Matter of fact he'll be here in a minute." He deserves it for thinking she's stupid and nieve. It's just about a woman who's had enough of this man in her life. "Don't you ever for a second get to thinking your irreplaceable." There's plenty of fish in the sea!

    The woman is upset for settling for replaceable guys and is lashing out to bring him down with her.

    Everyone gets the text, but few get the subtext: SHE is the one who keeps using the word “irreplaceable”. Her feelings have been so hurt that she’s lashing out in anger, saying things she doesn’t mean, but she unwittingly admits that he IS irreplaceable. It’s hurt sarcasm. Sad.

    A song about breaking up with a guy & feeling empowered because they are begging the woman to take them back. Totally original. Never heard a song like that before! Oh wait, every female singer has at least one of these songs. Yawn

    The song is about her being a whore. Obviously! Is going to have another man over in "a minute" then obviously she is or at least has been window shopping for another man. So the both of them are some cheating WHORES. Drop Mic.

    It's a celebration of a breakup and makes women feel like they're worth more.
    He was,Dismissed, dumped, broke off.

    dumped: means to get out of one's face and life so that a new partner can be established.

    3Indicating where the door is located, even if it is not actually located to the left -- "To the left" indicates that your exit is expected right now.

    AS A PLAY:

    BF: Baby, it wasn't me with that girl!
    GF: Ain't got time for your excuses, playa.... to the left.

    She's over the dude! She's to good for him and fed up with him. The man thinks she won't be able to do better but she's good and knows her worth. You can be a looker but it's whats on the inside.

    ! Actually, the parts of the Mass that are most meant to be sung are those parts that are the dialogue teewben the people and the priest (The Lord be with you, and also with you, lift up you hearts, we lift them up to the Lord, etc.). I have a theory why this is so. The Mass is very much a dialogue . It is the dialogue teewben God and Man, the Father and the Son (the priest in persona Christi) such as in the Agony in the Garden. It is also the dialogue teewben the Bride and the Bridegroom, Christ and His Church. Which is seen in the Song of Songs! It's a love song!

    This song is about sending her living-in partner out of her own house because it cheated. She claims back all the things she gave the man. Beyonce also hides in this song the pain that she feels on the departure of the man by saying that she does not care and she can find another man that is better than him in less than an hour.
    She states here that the man must have not known much of her.

    The songs about how her guy has cheated on her and she's kicking him out for it. And he's telling her that she's making a mistake by doing that because she's never gonna find someone as great as him.
    (Standing in the front yard telling me
    How I'm such a fool - Talking about
    How I'll never ever find a man like you )

    So she's saying she could find someone to replace him anytime she wants.

    (I could have another you in a minute
    matter fact he'll be here in a minute - baby...
    ... I can have another you by tomorrow
    So don't you ever for a second get to thinking you're irreplaceable)

    This song isn't about JZ becaise she even said it wasn't. Ne-yo made this song for her and she fell in love with it and the idea of the song suited her very well. This song about a man who cheated on her but she is telling him that : No she isn't gonna take him cheating on her, he needs to take all his stuff out of her house and get the stepping, leave, get out, but all the stuff that she bought for him ( the jacket in the video she takes off him), his car ( that's why he is taking a taxi) she's telling him she doesn't need him, and she'll have another man quick fast. He is Replaceable, not Irreplaceable. <33

    Beyonce, God Bless Her Soul, Has always written about empowering Woman to be able to stand on their own Two Feet. The Suga Mama Syndrum has become an extremely "NEED TO PLEASE" Disease. As Per "Oprah" This was highly reported to be occurring to Woman of Color in a higher percentage, Just a stat, over all as more Woman entered the Working Force, Stats proved that the Male's had to compete with Woman for Employment. Woman often had the option to either Work or be A Wife/Mother/Household Care Tender. A Wife/Mother/H.C.T. If Paid was Equal in hours and wage earnings to be that equal of a 250,00.00 Job Position. "NICE A 1/4 of a MILLION FOR THEIR JOB" WHO MAKES THAT KIND OF MONEY ???? Doctors, C.E.O's of Corporate America, Lawyers, Entrenpenturs ???? = Highly Educated Which Takes $$$$. (Artists being the exception, they need Talent & Skill'z and a lot of people that they can trust.) A lot of Parasites were produced. Hense, the "He broke Their Deal". She Foot the Bill For Them in a higher % even if he was even working or going to school Up Till then. He Cheated, Tried to Hide IT. "She Knew" ! "Bright Lady" She Being Empowered said " Ta Ta'z "
    Irreplaceable pertains to a very good "motto" for any human "NOT" to incorporate into their way of thinking, in Work, Relationships of any nature, friendships, Business partners, etc. Once Betrayed the Deal Has Been Broken. What can be worse of Betrayal??? Is the denial that a betrayal Occurred. <3 2 All |30M|3 aka BOMB, DA BOMB SHELL,
