Lucy Liu
With my girl, Drew
Cameron D. and Destiny (Uh, uh, yeah)
Charlie’s Angels, come on

(Come on)
Uh, uh, uh
(Bring it, bring it)

Question:
Tell me what you think about me
I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings
Only ring your celly when I’m feelin’ lonely
When it’s all over, please get up and leave

Question:
Tell me how you feel about this
Try to control me, boy, you get dismissed
Pay my own car note, and I pay my own bills
Always 50/50 in relationships

The shoes on my feet – I bought ‘em
The clothes I’m wearing – I bought ‘em
The rock I’m rockin’ – I bought it
‘Cause I depend on me
If I wanted

The watch I’m wearin’ – I bought it
The house I live in – I bought it
The car I’m driving – I bought it
I depend on me
(I depend on me)

All the women who independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honeys who makin’ money
Throw your hands up at me, baby
All the mamas who profit dollas
Throw your hands up at me
All the ladies who truly feel me
Throw your hands up at me

Girl, I didn’t know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that
Girl, I didn’t know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that

Tell me how you feel about this
Do what I want, live how I wanna live
I worked hard and sacrificed to get what I get
Ladies, it ain’t easy bein’ independent

Question:
How you like this knowledge that I brought
Braggin’ on that cash that he gave you is a front
If you’re gonna brag make sure it’s your money you flaunt
Depend on no one else to give you what you want

The shoes on my feet – I bought ‘em
The clothes I’m wearing – I bought ‘em
The rock I’m rockin’ – I bought it
‘Cause I depend on me
If I want it

The watch I’m wearin’ – I bought it
The house I live in – I bought it
The car I’m driving – I bought it
I depend on me
(I depend on me)

All the women who independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honeys who makin’ money
Throw your hands up at me
All the mamas who profit dollas
Throw your hands up at me
All the ladies who truly feel me
Throw your hands up at me

Girl, I didn’t know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that
Girl, I didn’t know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that

Destiny’s Child
Wassup?
You in the house?
Sure ’nuff
We’ll break these people off Angel-style

Child of Destiny
Independent beauties
No one else takes care of me
Charlies Angels

Woah
All the women who are independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honeys who makin’ money
Throw your hands up at me
All the mommas who profit dollas
Throw your hands up at me
All the ladies who truly feel me
Throw your hands up at me

Girl, I didn’t know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that

Girl, I didn’t know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that

Girl, I didn’t know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that

Girl, I didn’t know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that
