(by Prince)

Look at the bargains over here, ladies... If I was your girlfriend
Would you remember
2 tell me all the things you forgot when I was your man?
When I was your man If I was your best friend
Would you let me take care of you
And do all the things that only a best friend can
Only best friends can If I was your girlfriend
If I was your girlfriend If I was your girlfriend
Would you let me dress you
I mean, help you pick out your clothes
Before we go out Not that you're helpless
But sometime, sometime
Those are the things that bein' in love's about If I was your one and only friend
Would you run 2 me if somebody hurt you
Even if that somebody was me? (Even if that somebody was me?) Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be
Please If I was your girlfriend
If I was your girlfriend Would you let me wash your hair
Could I make you breakfast sometime
Or then, could we just hang out, I mean
Could we go 2 a movie and cry together
'cause 2 me baby that would be so fine (That would be so fine) (If I was your girlfriend)
Baby can I dress you
I mean, help you pick out your clothes
Before we go out
(If I was your girlfriend)
Listen girl, I ain't sayin you're helpless
But sometime, sometime
Those are the things that bein' in love's about (Sugar) Sugar do you know what I'm saying 2 you this evening? (Sugar)
Maybe you think I'm being a little self-centered (If I was your girlfriend)
But I, I said I want 2 be (Sugar)
All of the things you are 2 me (Sugar) (If I was your girlfriend)
Surely, surely you can see Is it really necessary 4 me 2 go out of the room
Just because you wanna undress? (If I was your girlfriend)
We don't have 2 make children 2 make love
And we don't have 2 make love 2 have an o****m (If I was your girlfriend) Your body's what I'm all about (If I was your girlfriend)
Can I see it?
I'll show you (If I was your girlfriend)
Why not?
You can do it because I'm your friend
I'll do it 4 you
Of course I'll undress in front of you! (If I was your girlfriend)
And when I'm naked, what shall I do?
How can I make you see that it's cool? (If I was your girlfriend)
Can't you just trust me?
If I was your girlfriend you could (If I was your girlfriend)
Oh, yeah, I think so
Listen, 4 you naked I would dance a ballet (If I was your girlfriend)
Would that get you off?
Then tell me what will!
If I was your girlfriend, would you tell me? (If I was your girlfriend)
Would you let me see you naked then?
Would you let me give you a bath?
Would you let me tickle you so hard U'd laugh and laugh (If I was your girlfriend)
And would you, would you let me kiss you there (If I was your girlfriend)
You know down there where it counts (If I was your girlfriend)
I'll do it so good I swear I'll drink every ounce
And then I'll hold you tight and hold you long (If I was your girlfriend) And together we'll stare into silence
And we'll try 2 imagine what it looks like
Yeah, we'll try 2 imagine what, what silence looks like
Yeah, we'll try 2 imagine what silence looks like
Yeah, we'll try...
