Howard: Just get the board feed. If someone off key. It’s pretty funny. This is Beyonce form the Today Show. It’s always funny. Remember Enrique Iglesias. Man: Enrique Iglesias and McCartney was another. Howard: Yeah. Beyonce: If I were a boy even just for a day I'd roll out of bed in the morning And throw on what I wanted And go drink beer with the guys Robin: Where did this happen? Howard: The Today Show. Beyonce: And chase after girls I'd kick it with who I wanted And I'd never get confronted for it 'Cause they stick up for me if I were a boy Everyone: Whoa! Ha ha! Howard: What a shriek. Beyonce: I think I could understand How it feels to love a girl I swear I'd be a better man I'd listen to her 'Cause I know how it hurts When you lose the one you wanted Howard: That’s good. *Howl* Beyonce: 'Cause he's taking you for granted And everything you had got destroyed If I were a boy I would turn off my phone Tell everyone it's broken So they'd think that I was sleeping alone Robin: Wait a minute, what did the people hear? Man: They were hearing the cd or the track. Robin: So she’s lip syncing? Howard: Yeah, basically. But you know she’s singing along with it. Having a hard time I guess. Isn’t a good voice. Beyonce: I'd put myself first Robin: And how did this get leaked out? Howard: I don’t know. This is all over the internet. Robin: Wow. Man: A funny board man sent it out. Howard: Yeah. Somebody I’m sure she wants to strangle. Robin: Yeah I’m just wondering why he picked on her. Howard: Cause remember Enrique Iglesias had to come in here and prove he can sing. Beyonce: And make the rules as I go 'Cause I know that she'd be faithful Waiting for me Howard: Why can’t these people just sing a song and not sing it to a track. I mean I don’t get it. Man: They don’t do it that way anymore, I swear to god. They just want the most perfect… Howard: They’re worried about the audio quality on television… Man: They’re worried about the audio quality. They’re worried about time; they can’t get a sound check. And especially if they’re throwing them outside on that plaza. They’re not going to have great sound. Enrique: All I need is a rhythm divine Lost in the music, your heart will be mine All I need is to look in your eyes Viva la musica, say you'll be mine Robin: I think hers is worse. Hers is about the worst there is. Beyonce: To come home, to come home Howard: I think she’s hotter now because she can’t sing. Man: That’s the way a hot chick should sing. Howard: Now I get it. Beyonce: If I were a boy I think I Howard: That’s probably why it took Jay-Z so long to marry her… Robin: She can’t sing. Howard: Yeah. I don’t want that secret getting out. I guess when they sing to a track they don’t care. She obviously can sing right? Robin: Well it sounds like she can’t hear anything. Man: They probably have it running through the monitors a little bit. What she’s probably hearing is her voice the pre-recorded fact…. Robin: Right, but you know how it is when you have head phones and whatever you can’t hear what you’re doing. Howard: Yeah, whenever I sing it doesn’t sound quite right. Beyonce: could understand How it feels to love a girl I swear I'd be a better man Howard: What else do I have to play? I got a ton of things to play here quite frankly.
