Mark Knopfler – If I Had You lyrics

Oo-ooo if I had you, yeah the things that I could do
Honey, if I had you

Now I could sing like an angel, fly just like a bird
Sing you the best love song you ever heard
I could be a poet like Mohammed Ali
Float like a butterfly, sting just like a, just like a bee

Mmm, ooo, if I had you, ahhh the things that I could do
If I had you

Now I'd go get your name tattooed on my chest
Well it'd just say 'my baby, my baby, she's the best'
Could be your Superman, you could be my Lois Lane
I could be a Tarzan, you could be my sweet Jane - if you wanted to

Mmm if I had you, ah the things that I could do
If I had you

Yeah one more time

Ooo if I had, only had you, Yeah the things that I could do

Oh boy
Only if I had you

So come on dance with me baby, don't let me go
Yeah dance with me baby, don't let me go
Baby don't let me, don't let me
Don't let me go, oh no
