"Look at the bargains over here ladies"

Ooh...

If I was ur girlfriend, would U remember
2 tell me all the things U 4got when I was ur man?
Hey, when I was ur man
If I was ur best friend, would U let me
Take care of U and do all the things that only a best friend can?
Oh
Only best friends can
Ooh

If I was ur girlfriend
Ooh...
If I was ur girlfriend

If I was ur girlfriend, would U let me dress U?
I mean help U pick out ur clothes b4 we go out
Not that U're helpless but sometime
Sometime those r the things that bein' n love's about
If I was ur 1 and only friend
Would U run 2 me if somebody hurt U even if that somebody was me?
Yeah-ooh
Sometime I trip on how happy we could b
Please!

If I was ur girlfriend
Ooh...
If I was ur girlfriend

Would U let me wash ur hair?
Could I make U breakfast sometime?
Well... then could we just hang out, I mean
Could we go 2 a movie and cry 2gether?
Cuz 2 me, baby, that would b so fine
Whoo

If I was ur girlfriend
Baby, can I dress U?
I mean help U pick out ur clothes b4 we go out
(If I was ur girlfriend)
Listen girl, I ain't sayin U're helpless but sometime
Sometime those r the things that bein' n love's about (Sugar)

Sugar, do U know what I'm sayin' 2 U this evening? (Sugar)
Maybe U think I'm bein' a little self-centered (If I was ur girlfriend)
But I... I said I wanna b (Sugar)
All of the things U r 2 me (Sugar) (If I was ur girlfriend)
Surely, surely U can see

Is it really necessary 4 me 2 go out of the room
Just because U wanna undress?
(If I was ur girlfriend) {repeat}
We don't have 2 make children 2 make love
And we don't have 2 make love 2 have an orgasm
Ur body's what I'm all about
Can I see it?
I'll show U
Why not?
U think it's because I'm ur friend, I'd do it 4 U
Of course I'd undress n front of U
And when I'm naked, what shall I do?
How can I make U see that it's cool?
Can't U just trust me?
If I was ur 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 ur 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 U'd laugh and laugh
Would U, would U let me kiss U there?
U know, down there where it counts
I'll do it so good, I swear I'll drink every ounce
And then I'll hold U tight and hold U long
And 2gether we'll stare n2 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, we'll try 2 imagine what silence looks like
Yeah, we'll try
