Songtekst

Timbaland:
It's been a long time
I Know I shouldn't left you, left you,
Without a dope beat to step to
Step to, step to, step to
Step to,
Freaky, freaky, freaky( baby girl)

Aaliyah:
What would you do
To get to me?
What would you say
To have your way?
Would you give up?
Or try again
If I hesitate to let you in?
Now would you be yourself
Or play a role?
Tell all the boys
Or keep it low?
If I say no
Would you turn away
Or play me off
Or would you stay (oooohhh)...

Chorus:
If at first you don't succeed
( First you don't succeed )
Then dust yourself off and try again
You can dust if off and try again, try again
'Cause if at first you don't succeed
( at first you don't succeed )
You can dust it off and try again,
Dust yourself off and try again, try again
Again, again

Aaliyah:
I'm in to you
You in to me?
But I can't let it go
So easily,
Not 'till I see
What this could be
Could be eternity
Or just a week?
You know our chemistry
It's off the chain
It's perfect now
But will it change?
This ain't a yes
This ain't a no
Just do your thang
And we'll see how it goes (oooohhh)...

Chorus

See you don't wanna throw it all away
I might be shy on the first date
but what about the next date (huh, huh, huh, huh)
See you don't wanna throw it all away
I might be buggin' on the first date
but what about the next date (huh, huh, huh, huh, oh)

[Chorus 3x]

TIMBALAND
It's been a long time (long time)
Shouldn't have left you (left you)
Without a dope beat to step to
Step to, step to, step to

CHORUS

TIMBALAND
It's been a long time (long time)
Shouldn't have left you (left you)
Without a dope beat to step to
Step to, step to, step to
