Un, deux, trois

Oh la la (x2)

You got me down on the floor
So what’d you bring me down here for? (x2)

Cause if I was a man I’d make my move
If I was a blade I’d shave you smooth
If I was a crow then I would caw
And if I was from Paris, if I was from Paris
I would go: oh-la-la-la-la-la-la, a-oh-la-la-la-la-la-la

Hey! You got me up on your swing
So when you gonna shake that thing?

Oh! If I was a man I’d make my move
And if I was a blade I’d shave you smooth
If I was a crow then I would caw
And if I was from Paris, if I was from Paris
I would go: oh-la-la-la-la-la-la, oh-la-la-la-la-la-la

[rocking break]

oh-la-la-la-la-la-la
You got me high as a kite
So we can kick it by candle light
You got me high as a kite
I said we can kick it by candle light

Cause if I was a man I’d make my move
If I was a blade I’d shave you smooth
If I was a crow then I would caw
And if I was from Paris, if I was from Paris
I would go: oh-la-la-la-la-la-la

    General CommentThe ones listed are correct. This is for the one that was a bonus track on This is Somewhere. The ones you listed are off their self-titled album which is a reworking of this song.

    Lyric CorrectionYou got me down on the floor
    So what’d you bring me down here for?
    You got me down on the floor
    So what’d you bring me down here for?

    If I a man I’d make my move
    If I was a blade I’d shave you smooth
    If I a judge I’d break the law
    And if I was from Paris
    If I was from Paris
    I would say
    Oooh la la la la lala

    You got me up on your swing
    So when you gonna shake that thing?
    You got me up on your swing
    So when you gonna shake that thing?

    If I a man I’d make my move
    If I was a blade I’d shave you smooth
    If I a judge I’d break the law
    And if I was from Paris
    If I was from Paris
    I would say
    Oooh la la la la la la

    If I a man I’d make my move
    If I was a blade I’d shave you smooth
    If I a judge I’d break the law
    And if I was from Paris
    If I was from Paris
    I would say
    Oooh la la la la la la


    correct lyrics from their website. =]


    btw, love this song and band, but the video from 'divas salute our troops' is the best!
    i think the line 'if i was a man, id make my move' sums it up the best. i think she's saying that you are acting like you want me, so take your shot before you miss it.
