Aaliyah – “4 Page Letter” and “If Your Girl Only Knew”

Saturday, February 06, 2010 - Music

Today you get a two-for-one deal! That’s right, it’s a “buy one, get one free” kind of day! :-p

These are my two favorite Aaliyah songs. I’m not much of an Aaliyah fan, actually, so quizzing me about any of her other songs would be pretty pointless, but I love these, two.

The videos are pretty cool, too!

Mama always told me to be careful who I love,
And daddy always told me, “make sure he’s right.”
I always had my eyes on this one particular guy.
I was too shy so I decided to write.

I’m sending him a four-page letter,
And I enclosed it with a kiss,
And when I write him he better get it on time.
I’m sending him a four-page letter,
And I enclosed it with a kiss,
And when I write him he better get it on time.

People always sayin’ that I play myself for you,
They say that you don’t even notice me.
Maybe when I get the nerve to come to you,
Promise me that you won’t diss me.

I’m sending him a four-page letter,
And I enclosed it with a kiss,
And when I write him he better get it on time.
I’m sending him a four-page letter,
And I enclosed it with a kiss,
And when I write him he better get it on time.

I’m writin’ you a love letter tonight,
You better keep a watch cause the mailmain’s comin’.
I’m writin’ you a love letter tonight,
You better keep a watch cause the mailmain’s comin’.

I’m sending him a four-page letter,
And I enclosed it with a kiss,
And when I write him he better get it on time.
I’m sending him a four-page letter,
And I enclosed it with a kiss,
And when I write him he better get it on time.

If your girl only knew,
That you was trying to get with me,
What would she do?
If your girl only knew,
That you was dissin’ her to talk to me.

She would probably leave you alone,
She would probably curse you out and unplug her phone.
I bet she’d be glad that you was gone,
And then she wouldn’t have to worry.

If your girl only knew,
That I would want to kick it with you.
And if your girl could only see,
How you be calling me, getting fresh with me.

She would probably leave you alone,
She would probably curse you out and unplug her phone.
I bet she’d be glad that you was gone,
And then she wouldn’t have to worry.

She’s crazy to put up with you.
Oh boy I won’t be no fool,
Let you like what you see,
It ain’t easy to get with me,
But it’s dumb to put up with you.
I won’t be no fool,
Let you like what you see,
It ain’t easy to get with me.

She would probably leave you alone,
She would probably curse you out and unplug her phone.
I bet she’d be glad that you was gone,
And then she wouldn’t have to worry.
[repeat…]

If your girl only knew
(What you saying, what you saying, what you saying, huh?)
[repeat…]

And yes, I know, I still haven’t gotten around to hosting the videos myself. I swear I’m going to do it! Soon, I hope.
