Aaliyah - Are You That Somebody Lyrics




[Timbaland:]
Dirty South (uh-huh)
Can you all really feel me (feel us)
East coast feel me (feel us)
West coast feel me
Dirty south (say what)
Can you all really feel me (huh)
East coast feel me (baby girl)
West coast feel me (huh uh)
Dirty south (yeah)
Can you all really feel me (say what)
East coast feel me (feel us)
West coast feel me (feel us)
Dirty south (dirty dirty)
Can you all really feel me (yeah)
East coast feel me (baby girl)
West coast feel me (ha)

Boy,
I've been watching you
Like the hawk in the sky
That flies, but
You are my prey (my prey)
Boy, I promise you
If we keep bumpin' heads
I know that one of these days (days)
We gone hook it up
Probably talk on the phone
But see I don't know if that's good
I've been holding back
This secret from you
Probably shouldn't tell it but if I

[Chorus:]
If I let you know
You can't tell nobody
I'm talking bout nobody
Are you responsible?
Boy I gotta watch my back
'Cause I'm not just anybody
Is it my go, is it your go
Sometimes I'm goody goody
Right now I'm naughty naughty
Say yes or say no
'Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody

Boy,
Won't you pick me up at the park right now
Up the block while everyone
Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
I'll be waiting there
With my trench, my locs, my hat
Just so I'm low key
If you tell the world
Don't speak, you know that would be weak
Oh Boy,
See I'm trusting you
With my heart, my soul
I probably shouldn't let you, but...

[Chorus:]
If I let this go
You can't tell nobody
I'm talking bout nobody
I hope you're responsible
Boy I gotta watch my back
'Cause I'm not just anybody
Is it my go, is it your go
Sometimes I'm goody goody
Right now I'm naughty naughty
Say yes or say no
'Cause I really need somebody (uh)
Tell me are you that somebody (uh)

[Timbaland:]
Baby girl
I'm the man from the big Va
Won't you come play round my way
And listen to what I gotta say
Timbaland
Don't you know I am the man
Rock shows from Virginia to Japan (what)
Have people shaking shaking my hand (what)
Baby girl
Better known as Aaliyah
Give me goosebumps and high fevers
Making playahaters to believers
Don't you know
Gotta tell somebody 'cause...
'Cause I really need somebody (Uh huh)
Tell me are you that somebody! (Say What!)

[Chorus:]
If I let this go
You can't tell nobody
I'm talking bout nobody
Are you responsible?
Boy I gotta watch my back
'Cause I'm not just anybody
Is it my go, is it your go
Sometimes I'm goody goody
Right now I'm naughty naughty
Say yes or say no
'Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody

[Pause]

You can't tell nobody
I'm talking bout nobody
I hope you're responsible
Boy I gotta watch my back
I'm not just anybody
Is it my go, is it your go
Sometimes I'm goody goody
Right now I'm naughty naughty
Say yes or say no
'Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody

[Pause]

Is it my go, is it your go
Sometimes I'm goody goody
Right now I'm naughty naughty

[Pause]

'Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody

[Pause]

You can't tell nobody
I'm talking bout nobody

  10. GINA POALERO

    This was published almost 20 years ago. Why does it say 2014?

    Idris Zakir

    The original video got taken down due to copyright issues because it contained some scenes from the Dr doolittle movie.

    GINA POALERO

    Idris Zakir I got it . Thought I deleted that comment. Sorry

  21. mg19cal

    I always felt like that dancer dude was just trying too hard in this video. I'm sure he was probably the choreographer who got the chance to be in a video, but still. Take it easy homeboy

    Also, I remember the ORIGINAL video had the clips from the Dr Doolittle movie playing in background. But.......YouTube legal reasons I guess

    David Smith I got one even better in her video we need a resolution ...The Whole video shows Aaliyah in a dead woman clothing and even layed in the style of a casket and even had a flower 🌸 that is infamous in the Bahamas 🇧🇸...something to check out

    David Smith

    @DevanteTheDCGuy Reacts too I'm sure the clothing was no coincidence mate.
    Good catch.
    Aaliyah's last album cover featured a red background foreshadowing that Aaliyah would be sacrificed by the Illuminati.

  30. Anthony

    I’m so happy that this music video is back!!!🙌🏾❤️ love you Aaliyah!

  31. Dis Master

    Aliyah was the queen. Unique style. You would've topped every one. Gone to soon.

  32. Mernel Byfield

    Missing You Aaliyah

  33. Aliyah Murphy

    Love this song

  34. Ivan Valencia

    that baby sound in the background was genius! this song will live to be recognized for centuries!

  35. Mike Thieman Jr

    Now WHY ain't Timbaland ruling the world right now?!

  36. Jazzmar

    So glad we FINALLY getting her music on all platforms on her birthday!!!

  37. Keaton8706

    Why can’t you find this within Apple Music?

    Walnut Spice

    Her music is being held hostage by old people who don't understand modern day streaming services. A lot of artists that passed are suffering from this. If you want to hear most of her stuff, head over to ebay and search for it on CD or Cassette.

  38. JR Ewing

    Aalyiah was a legend.

  39. Brittahnye Patton

    The Princess



    Why Ciara sound like her tho??

  40. El Nubian

    People commenting about race and pitting talented black women against each other is so very sad.
    How about human beings with a special gift? Is that too boring?

  41. Livla

    The first time I heard "Baby girl I'm that man from the Bigby,"

  42. M Z

    This song is so hard to sing and only Aaliyah can sing it. Her voice goes so low that contralto is so hard to reach. I just love this song 😭😭

  43. Astacia Mckinnis

    Man, I love how she dance

  44. Netta Wiggins

    I truly miss her

  45. Sinnamon Big buns

    Why does she not have her own VEVO channel

  46. Sxpreme Destineee

    I’m here from a Grayson Dolan edit

  47. Misstimuli

    That dance at the end was everything!!!

  48. Faith Lovkins

    I remember my aunt used to blast this in her car while was picking up my sister with me. Good times.

  49. Tiffanye Young

    This and "Dust yourself Off And Try Again" are my two favorite videos and songs. The Flamenco routine is my favorite. Aaliyah is such a talented bad ass! I miss you girl!

  50. Shaquille Oatmeal

    Best song ever, I don’t even want a discussion.

  94. Trish Farrugia

    Jokes start. Difficult bones. Hard to read the pages and the beginning is Horry. Sistum outbreaks. Happy days. Evenings of adventure. Mindless time. Behind the scenes was the day of hip hop. Starters jacket. Color of it don't remember. Do you forget the phone with the calling cards. Collect call from the wash this ad. Lovers lane. And a little bit of the grand something.
