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 Mohammad Ali
Float like a butterfly
Sting just like a, just like a bee

Mmm, ooo, if I had you
Ahh, 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'

I 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
