If Was The Man In Ur Life
Recorded circa 1999 and released as the 8th track on album Musicology (March 27, 2004). Written by Prince.

 
If I was the man n ur life, uh
I'd make U happy, I'd treat U right
I'd buy U flowers every single day
I'd give U power, I'd do whatever U say

I heard a rumor that ur man, he said he'd do U wrong
And U're so vain U think that U're the 1 behind this song
Surely U know he got plenty lyrics, yeah, up his sleeve
And after he got what he want, he just go up and leave
Sunday chocolate on the roof right after his game
He like the Lakers but the Sixers on when he came
If he's with another now U best believe the party's crackin'
U gettin' played girl, U better get ur mack on

And do un2 others as they do un2 U
And call me on the day that U and him r just 2 thru
Ooh

If I was the man n ur life
I'd make U happy, I'd treat U right
I... would buy U flowers (yes I would) every single day
I'd give U power, I'd do whatever U say

Was it U that I saw outside the liquor store?
Waitin' on that fool 2 purchase what U'd been dyin' 4
Never thought I'd see a drop of spirit ever bring U down
Now U got that chocolate barracuda hangin' 'round
Hangin' 'round ur neck like a cheap gold chain
He don't deserve 2 say that he ever knew ur name
Much less he get 2 smell the perfume I gave ya
Please don't tell me that U all got down

U better do un2 others as they do un2 U
And call me on the day... that U and him r just 2 thru

If I was the man n ur life (Yeah, I would make U happy)
I'd make U happy, I'd treat U right (Don't U know I would treat U so right?)
I'd buy U flowers every single day (Oh...)
I'd give U power, darlin', I'd do whatever U say, whatever U say
