Look at the bargains over here, ladies...
If I was your girlfriend
Would u remember 2 tell me all the things u forgot
When I was your man?
Hey, when I was your man
If I was your best friend
Would u let me take care of u 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 u let me dress u
I mean, help u pick out your clothes
Before we go out
Not that you're helpless
But sometimes, sometimes
Those are the things that bein in loves about
If I was your one and only friend
Would u run 2 me if somebody hurt u
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 u let me wash your hair
Could I make u breakfast sometime
Or then, could we just hang out, I mean
Could we go 2 a movie and cry together
Cuz 2 me baby that would be so fine

If I was your girlfriend
Baby can I dress u
I mean, help u pick out your clothes
Before we go out
(if I was your girlfriend)
Listen girl, I aint sayin you're helpless
But sometimes, sometimes
Those are the things that bein in loves about (sugar)

Sugar do u know what Im saying 2 u this evening? (sugar)
Maybe u think Im being
A little self-centered (if I was your girlfriend)
But i, I said I want 2 be (sugar)
All of the things u are 2 me (sugar)
Surely, surely u can see (if I was your girlfriend)
{{title repeated in background}}
Is it really necessary 4 me 2 go out of the room
Just because u wanna undress?
I mean, we don't have 2 make children 2 make love
And then, we don't have 2 make love 2 have an orgasm
Your bodys what Im all about
Can I see u?
Ill show u
Why not?
U can think it's because Im your friend I'll do it 4 u
Of course I'll undress in front of u!
And when Im naked, what shall I do?
How can I make u see that it's cool?
Cant u just trust me?
If I was your girlfriend u could
Oh, yeah, I think so
Listen, 4 u naked I would dance a ballet
Would that get u off?
Then tell me what will!
If I was your girlfriend, would u tell me?
Would u let me see u naked then?
Would u let me give u a bath?
Would u let me tickle u so hard ud laugh and laugh
And would u, would u let me kiss u there
You know down there where it counts
Ill do it so good I swear I'll drink every ounce
And then I'll hold u tight and hold u long
And together well stare into silence
And well try 2 imagine what it looks like
Yeah, well try 2 imagine what, what silence looks like
Yeah, well try 2 imagine what silence looks like
Yeah, well try...
