I'm looking for a girl like you
Well here I go

Now, now, now, who's the baby bobbing
Dipping, dodging, crying, sobbing?
Looking to be mobbing cause it's just clocking and robbing
Oh hi now, welcome to my town
The illy I town, you got kids lifting eyebrows
Every time you fly down, so lie down
Full maxing, seeing you laughing
With passion happening
Every action has a reaction
In fact you got my mackin' cracking
I heard your lackin' satisfaction from your other half
And honey you're packing from the back
And the captain makes it happen
Pardon, what's the matter?
He got you shattered
Or that's your man that's scattered
That backward bastard
You fine thang thang
Look at me good and when that game ain't true
You make me wanna go, ooh (woo)
Like Tang Clan man
Known for my slang bang
Don't be alarmed when my fangs hang
My love like bang bang, then I maintain
I need a diva like Aaliyah
Plush like a cleaner, 850 Beemer
Hot to let me bake her like Anita

I'm looking for a girl like you
Well here I go
I hope, I hope to me you won't lie to
Well tell me more, I'm looking for a guy like you
Yeah, you know me, I hope
I hope (hope) you feel it in your knees
Oh, yes indeed

I'm looking for a girl like you
Well here I go
I hope, I hope to me you won't lie to
Well tell me more, I'm looking for a guy like you
Yeah, you know me, I hope
I hope (hope) you feel it in your knees
Oh, yes indeed

When I first saw you (first saw you)
That's when I knew, I really knew
I wanted to get close to you
I'm watching, clocking you
I just spend my days, wondering when I will see your face
Boy, I just wanna see your face and hear you say

I'm looking for a girl like you
Well here I go
I hope, I hope to me you won't lie to
Well tell me more, I'm looking for a guy like you
Yeah, you know me, I hope
I hope (hope) you feel it in your knees
Oh, yes indeed

I'm looking for a girl like you
Well here I go
I hope, I hope to me you won't lie to
Well tell me more, I'm looking for a guy like you
Yeah, you know me, I hope
I hope (hope) you feel it in your knees
Oh, yes indeed

Dada-dah-dah
Dada-dah, dada-dah-dah
Uhnda-dah
Dada-dah-dah
Dada-dah, dada-dah-dah
Uhnda-dah

It would not be too hard
If you want my heart, just say you love me (I'm loving every inch)
No one in the world could tear us apart
I'll be your lady (Well, can I have a pinch?)
So what you say (what do I say?)
Baby, tell me what's your name (Treach, you wanna play?)
Will it be okay? (Guaranteed A-ok)
Let me take it to you my love

I'm looking for a girl like you
Here I go
I hope, I hope to me you won't lie to
Well tell me more, I'm looking for a guy like you
Yeah, you know me, I hope
I hope (hope) you feel it in your knees
Oh, yes indeed

I'm looking for a girl like you
Well here I go
I hope, I hope to me you won't lie to
Well tell me more, I'm looking for a guy like you
Yeah, you know me, I hope
I hope (hope) you feel it in your knees
Oh, yes indeed

Oh baby I could touch ya
Dada-dah-dah
You kiss me right
Dada-dah-dah
Be your lover undercover, get a woman wet
Dada-dah

I wanna get to know a little more about you
And then you smile
And then what follows?
Our love is pouring down
Like there ain't no tomorrow
Baby, can we talk?
My heart ain't hollow
About us
Melts in my mouth but that ain't all though
And then you smile
And then what follows?
Our love is pouring down
Like there ain't no tomorrow
Baby, can we talk?
My heart ain't hollow
About us
Melts in my mouth but that ain't all though

I'm looking for a girl like you
Here I go
I hope, I hope to me you won't lie to
Well tell me more, I'm looking for a guy like you
Yeah, you know me, I hope
I hope (hope) you feel it in your knees
Oh, yes indeed

I'm looking for a girl like you
Well here I go
I hope, I hope to me you won't lie to
Well tell me more, I'm looking for a guy like you
Yeah, you know me, I hope
I hope (hope) you feel it in your knees
Oh, yes indeed

    I love this song, it's one of my favs off "One in a Million" I can't believe it has no comments. Come On you guys show AALIYAH some respect. Anyways it's about a guy and a girl trying to talk to each other. (relationship wise) I guess, I could be wrong, but that's what I got out of it.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
