(Richard Fagan/Rick Peoples)

Well I better tell you upfront you've always been my friend
The kind of woman you found won't come your way again
She's the kind of lady that every man dreams of
Son if you don't treat her right she'll find someone that does

If I were you and she was mine
I'd give her all my lovin' all the time
I'd thank the Lord each morning she wakes up by my side
That's what I'd do if I were you and she was mine

Well I've never been a preacher and I ain't gonna start
Buddy what you're thinkin' 'bout can tear your world apart
You know that barroom beauty would be better left alone
She can't hold a candle to the girl you got at home

If I were you and she was mine
I'd give her all my lovin' all the time
I'd thank the Lord each morning she wakes up by my side
That's what I'd do if I were you and she was mine

Now we've been friends for so long and I hope we'll always be
But if she leaves you for someone new that someone might be me

Oh... I'd thank the Lord each morning she wakes up by my side
That's what I'd do if I were you and she was mine
That's what I'd do if I were you and she was mine
