Aaliyah, sing

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

She would probably leave (probably leave)
You alone (you alone)
She'd probably curse you out and unplug her phone, oh
I bet she'd be glad, oh, yeah that you was gone
And that she wouldn't have to worry

Oh, check

If your girl only knew, knew
That I would want, to kick it with you
If she knew, and if your girl could only see, see
How you be callin' me, gettin' fresh with me

You alone (you alone)
She'd probably curse you out and unplug her phone, oh
I bet she'd be glad, oh, yeah that you was gone
And that she wouldn't have to worry

She is crazy to put up with you
But, boy, I won't be no fool
Won't be no fool, bet you like what you see
It ain't easy to get with me, no, baby
If I was gonna put up with you, I won't be no fool
Bet you like what you see
It ain't easy to get with me

She would probably leave (probably leave)
You alone (you alone)
She'd probably curse you out and unplug her phone, oh
I bet she'd be glad, oh, yeah that you was gone
And that she wouldn't have to worry
