London speed it up refers to the music charts. There is a huge competition in music between London artists and American artists. I think she is referring to London needs to improve their quality of music or work harder to “rock it” or make it to the top of the music charts fast, as she has and will.

Good insight on chorus.

The “London speed it up, Houston rock it” line is also a sex metaphor.

“London speed it up”= Beyonce like her sex fast

“Houston rock it”=“Houston rocket”= Beyonce wants to have sex until they reach the climax

Add a suggestion

Jay-Z and Beyoncé began dating, reportedly, in 2002

An opposition to the view that war/big-government/communism/totalitarianism can solve world problems and improve nations. Those in power world wide need to open their minds and work towards peace, freedom and improvement of human lives worldwide

An often overlooked accomplishment of the Beatles, regarding their ostensible sympathy for the Soviets, is that they brought Western thought and the freedom of music, into Russia, during the cooling down period of the tense “Cold War”, at exactly the right time, to plant
Seeds of freedom there.

It caused great concern to the Western governments, thinking that they were being used to promote the growth of communism. When John sings of “Revolution” like the first Lenin, it’s not daft to see why there was a real concern. The Beatles were almost as popular as Jesus Christ.

In fact, the Soviet leaders, at the time, absolutely loved their anthem, “Back to the U.S.S.R.” so much, that it opened a door for them to perform. The Beatles literally “Rocked The Kremlin”!

The Beatles (and particularly John) spoke of anti-war and pacifist ideals, largely in response to the Vietnam War, which members of the ‘hippie’ movement frequently protested against.

In Revolution, broadly the same song as Revolution I, the lyric is simply “you can count me out”.

John did go through a period of supporting the violent overthrow of governments, to establish a fair world, where wealth would be redistributed and people would live in better conditions.

Many of the revolutionaries of the 60s desperately wanted Lennon’s patronage, for his ability to reach billions, and for his money. Much to his credit, John was leery. He came to understand that this kind of revolution always fails, even when it succeeds.

"Yeah, this is my Guinness flow I'm going for the world re..." (Chiddy Bang – Guinness Flow) | pending

This may not be relevant, but pubs often have Guinness-pouring contests (competitions for pouring the popular Irish dry stout from a drought in accordance with exact specifications for technique and timing)

"[Hook/Intro: Joe Strummer] / All your life dreamed a drea..." (Chiddy Bang – Silver Screen) | rejected

“Silver Screen” is an old-fashioned term for movies

"Houston rock it" (Beyoncé – Countdown) | accepted

Another bit of information, Knowles was born and raised in Houston, TX

"Yup, I buy my own, if he deserve it, buy his shit too" (Beyoncé – Countdown) | pending

She’s not talking about their albums. It’s not that complex. She’s saying she can provide for herself and if her man deserves it she’ll buy things for him as well.

"Me and my boo in my boo's coupe riding" (Beyoncé – Countdown) | accepted

I believe the lyric is “me and my boo in my boo’s coupe, riding”

"And the Bible told us every girl was sour" (Lil Wayne – A Milli) | accepted

Torah is the Jewish holy book, Wayne is a Christian so he’d be referencing the Old Testament of the Bible. They’re one and the same though.

"Fuck your city and your town, I state facts" (Lil Wayne – You Ain't Got Nuthin') | rejected

I feel like there was a version of “Brain Quest” called “State Facts” back when I was in elementary school (a decade ago). Wayne might be referencing this as well. Not certain though, don’t quote me on it.

"She told me you be beastin', you be checkin' for the burn..." (Lil Wayne – You Ain't Got Nuthin') | rejected

It’s a common joke that a girl with injured or scraped-up knees has been giving blowjobs

"I admit my first watch was a Fossil" (Kanye West – See Me Now) | rejected

Possible double meaning- ‘fossil’ is used to refer to anything archaic or old-fashioned, ie out of style

"My niggas is home" (Kanye West – See Me Now) | rejected

And in the final line of this verse, about Kanye’s deceased mother. Beyonce is clearly speaking someone else’s words, I don’t think she’d write a song with the n-word
