    Apparently We've All Been Singing "Baby Boy" Wrong And Beyoncé Has Some Explaining To Do

    Great, my whole childhood was a lie.

    We all know the classic bop that is "Baby Boy". To keep with the facts, it's iconic.

    Columbia

    But hold up (no, don't sing the song, I mean wait a damn second) – apparently we've all been hearing the lyrics wrong this entire time?

    Wow! So Beyoncé ain't say "Baby boy, let's come singaling.." ? 😭😭😭🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT'S NOT SOMETHING ABOUT SINGALINGING??????? HUH BEYONCÉ? WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

    BET

    This is Beyoncé watching us all get the lyrics wrong and not correcting us.

    I mean OK yes I'm not gonna lie, whenever I've been singing along I've never quite been certain what she's saying at that point. But I know for damn sure she said "singaling" and I won't hear any different.

    Although this is a fair point and now my whole life has changed.

    i just realized, i don't think i've ever looked up Beyoncé's lyrics. i just listen to the song till i memorize what… https://t.co/joO0Nx0j6R

    Which other Beyoncé songs have I misheard? What else is a complete lie? I just don't know anymore.

    CBS

    This is all of us reaching for answers.

    And before any of you liars come in here like I ALREADY KNEW THAT – I'm not the only one who's had their childhood robbed from them like this.

    @whoisBryanB I knew I wasn't the only one!!! I thought she was making up words!

    Not everybody was on the "singaling" train though.

    @whoisBryanB I'm not going to lie, I thought he was so fine she started speaking another language at that point.

    And some people were on a completely different wavelength altogether, so basically everybody in the world is wrong.

    @sharasvp @rcapsalin @whoisBryanB Listen I don’t care what her real lyrics are, that’s gonna always be the lyrics for us

    Well, I need to go lie down. In the words of Beyoncé...

    Republic

    Or are they even the words, who knows?!
