"If" as written by Aaron James Babcock, Collin Rigsby, Timothy Ryan Skipper and Jared Keith Rigsby....
I could be in love if you wore that dress every day
With your hair just so and your eyes of grey
You'd make a beautiful bird on a line
A beautiful bride of Frankenstein
A beautiful drop of iodine
If you were mine, if you were mine, if you were mine

I could be in love if the sun came out every day
Set the sky on fire and the city grey
I'd be there at the drop of a dime
If you were mine, if you were mine, if you were mine

If you were mine I'd tear the altar down of all that I'd lost to romance
If you were mine I'd risk my dignity if only to give love a chance
If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine

And I could be in love if the sirens sang every day
You draw me closer to destiny
Give us this moment to shine
Me and my bride of Frankenstein
A beautiful bird on a line
If you were mine, if you were mine, if you were mine
Would you be mine? Would you be mine?

If you were mine I'd tear the altar down of all that I'd lost to romance
If you were mine I'd risk my dignity if only to give love a chance
If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine
If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine

Ohh, if you were mine.

If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine
If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine
If you were mine

If you were mine I'd tear the altar down of all that I'd lost to romance
If you were mine I'd risk my dignity if only to give love a chance
If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine
If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine

If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine
If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine
If you were mine, I'd have the world
I'd have the world if you were mine.

    General CommentGreat song, musically and vocally.

    "i could be in love, if,
    you wore that dress everyday.
    with your hair just so,
    and your eyes are grey."
    This line shows the world's view of love: attraction. However, true and sincere love goes beyond physical attraction to the inside.

    General CommentGreat song! I always found it a bit of a parody on the over-the-top-infatuated love song. The speaker unintentionally betrays the fact that his attraction to the girl is mainly physical (if you wore that dress everyday / with your hair just so) and that he is drawn in like Odysseus to the Siren's Song in "The Odyssey." He also alludes to his own unpredictability (and perhaps his less-than-pure motives) by comparing himself to Frankenstein. What an awesome, deep, yet catchy tune!
