Glasses up! It’s Beyoncé and Jay Z’s wedding anniversary and we’re toasting to their love. As the Carters celebrate nine years of wedded bliss, we take a trip down memory lane to recall every time the Queen gushed about her King on a track.

“Baby, seem like everywhere I go I see you/From your eyes I smile, it's like I breathe you/Helplessly I reminisce, don't want to/Compare nobody to you” You know the love is real when you see your man in everything around you!

“My man made me feel so God damn fine (I'm flawless!)” Nuff said.

“Now everybody ask me why I'm smiling out from ear to ear/(They say love hurts)/But I know/(it's gonna take the real work)/Nothing's perfect but it's worth it/After fighting through my tears and finally you put me first” We don't know if the lyrics to this song are special because Bey her baby bump with daughter Blue made it's debut following the performance of this song at the 2011 MTV VMAs or because it's simply amazing. Either, "Love on Top" will always be a bop inspired by the love of her life!

“But nothing I know could slow us down/Couldn't slow us down/I thought I could live without you/Cause nothing I know can break us down” With all the salacious headlines that are often reported about this power couple, Bey always lets the world know that nothing is coming into she and her man...not even Becky with the good hair.

“Baby kiss me/Before they turn the lights out/Your heart is glowing/And I’m crashing into you” Sweet kisses from her man? This line was definitely written about HOV.
6 of 12 STAN HONDA
“The way that you know what I thought I knew/It's the beat my heart skips when I'm with you/But I still don't understand/Just how your love can do what no one else can.” Heart skipping a beat when you're with that someone special? That's love!
7 of 12 Ray Tamarra
“It's very seldom, that you're blessed to find your equal/Still play my part and let you take the lead role, believe me/I'll follow, this could be easy/I'll be the help, whenever you need me” No one will argue that both Bey and Jay are bosses both in and out of the music game and their marriage is of no exception--they are bosses who bow down in the name of love!
8 of 12 Bruce Glikas
“In December every sign has it's own mode/I was in love with a Sagittarius/See the emotions he put me through” Queen Bey loves her some Jay who was born on December 4th, which makes him a sagittarius. It totally makes sense that this line in the song from her first album is absolutely about him!
9 of 12 Kevin Mazur
“I don't care if they give me life/I get all of my life from you/And if loving you had a price/I would pay my life for you” Paying for your life over the love of your life? Damn, that's deep.
10 of 12 Kevin Mazur
“Damn I think I love that boy, do anything for that boy/Ooh ooh ooh ooh/Now I'll never be the same, you and me until the end”
When you'll do any and everything for love, that's when you know you're in deep!
11 of 12 Larry Busacca/PW
“I'll be your friend/I will love you so deeply/I will be the one to kiss you at night/I will love you until the end of time”
The foundation of Bey and Jay's relationship is friendship. That's the best kind of love.
12 of 12 Christopher Polk
“When my days look low/Pull me in close and don't let me go, make love to me/So when the world's at war, let our love heal us all”
The soon-to-be parents of three are just a love overload!
