If I Was Your Girlfriend APP thread

This is such a clever song, I love his voice in it. It is so different than anything else he has sung. I think this is my fav song on the SOTT album.


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 youre 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 youre 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 dont have 2 make children 2 make love
And then, we dont 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 its because Im your friend Ill do it 4 u
Of course Ill undress in front of u!
And when Im naked, what shall I do?
How can I make u see that its 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?

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 Ill drink every ounce
And then Ill 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...

It's not just clever. It's brilliant.
From time to time, Prince throws in a song to the mix of his already impressive repertoires and shows us just why there will never be in our lifetime, another Prince. He's a once in a lifetime phenomenon.

From beginning to end, this is a song of excess and understated elegance at the same time. A call to commitment hinting on the profane such as only Prince could pull off.

A brilliant song.

Okay, who is the real Prince?

If I Was Your Girlfriend makes Prince come across like he's this new age man intouch with his feminine side.

Is this really the Prince we know??

One minute it's all about physical attraction and blah, blah, blah. The next he just wants to be your friend and just wants to talk to you...

Damn, I can't work him out..???

One minute he's wanting to be in a relationship that is more than just physical attraction and the next minute he is saying the complete opposite...

I don't buy into the sweet, sentimental Prince lyrics anymore..

sad

Genious song. I just heard it on the radio and sounds as fresh/cutting edge/vital as it did when it was released (87!) The bassline is one of his best.

Fun Fact: Honored writer/professor bell hooks used to examine this song in her women/gender studies classes.

Man oh man...I love this song. Too boot, a man wrote it. Gotta hand it to Prince... clapping @)-}----

The lyrics of this song (as well as many others) have hooked me to his talent, for life.

LizaWoman08, thanks for this thread. @)-}---

I've been away from P's music for a number of months now. But this thread
(a breath of fresh air, really) gave me "total recall" as to why I love Prince's
music. Thanks, again. Oh & yeah...Camille was all over the place! Such yummy nastiness!!! giggle

I too, love this song! The part of it that really makes me shake my head is near the end, where the background vocals just keep saying..."if I was your girlfriend, if I was your girlfriend...It just sounds so mental! I have also played it on 45rpm, just for kicks, and the music is just slammin'!
If it breaks when it bends, U better not put it in!

the live version from the sott film is my favorite version
man, he has such an amazing body of music that it's sad to see him constrict it down to the basics. he's too talented for the lineup he's doing. estelle 81
