"Look at the bargains over here, ladies"

Ooh...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is it really necessary 4 me 2 go out of the room
Just becuz U wanna undress?
(If was ur girlfriend) {repeat}
We don't have 2 make children 2 make love
& we don't have 2 make love 2 have an orgasm
Ur body's what 'm all about
Can C it?
'll show U
Y not?
U could do it becuz 'm ur friend, 'd do it 4 U
Of course 'd undress N front of U
& when 'm naked, what shall do?
How can make U C that it's cool?
Can't U just trust me?
If was ur girlfriend, U could
Oh yeah, think so
Listen, 4 U naked would dance a ballet
Would that get U off?
Then tell me what will
If was ur girlfriend, would U tell me?
Would U let me C U naked then?
Would U let me give U a bath?
Would U let me tickle U so hard, U laugh & laugh
Would U, would U let me kiss U there?
U know, down there where it counts
'll do it so good, swear, 'll drink every ounce
& then 'll hold U tight & hold U long
& 2gether we'll stare n2 silence

& 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
