"What If" as written by Dow S. Brain, Bradley K. Young and Rich Cronin....
Marlyn without a Joe D'maggio
Oh where'd that horse and carriage go?
In the castle I'll build for you
On an island meant just for two

What if people stuck around?
What if all that's lost was found?
What if I could be
The only one that she'd ever dream of?

If I were some movie star
With some big expensive car
At some big first night premiere
With Ben Affleck and Richard Gere

Would you give me just one look
If I wrote some obscure book?
Would you give me just one chance
In some other circumstance?

Someone like me deserves someone like you

Marlyn without a Joe D'maggio
Oh where'd that horse and carriage go?
In the castle I'll build for you
On an island meant just for two

What if people stuck around?
What if all that's lost was found?
What if I could be
The only one that she'd ever dream of?

If I was the great Houdini
Granting wishes like a genie
If I were some big tough guy
Who went to Mars and made you cry

Told you lies because they say
Nice guys will lose anyway
In some other circumstance
Would you give me just one chance?

Someone like me deserves someone like you

Marlyn without a Joe D'maggio
Oh where'd that horse and carriage go?
In the castle I'll build for you
On an island meant just for two

What if people stuck around?
What if all that's lost was found?
What if I could be
The only one that she'd ever dream of?

What if I, what if I was the only one?

If I were a super hero
A good fella like De'niro
If I could face all my fears
Dated girls like Britney Spears

Wore black leather on a Harley
In Jamaica like Bob Marley
In some other circumstance
Would you give me just one chance?

Marlyn without a Joe D'maggio
Oh where'd that horse and carriage go?
In the castle I'll build for you
On an island meant just for two

What if people stuck around?
What if all that's lost was found?
What if I could be
The only one that she'd ever dream of?

Marlyn without a Joe D'maggio
Oh where'd that horse and carriage go?
In the castle I'll build for you
On an island meant just for two

What if people stuck around?
What if all that's lost was found?
What if I could be
The only one that she'd ever dream of?

    General Commentthis song definitely shows the writing talents of LFO. The only thing I really ever had against them was when they tried to rap in their songs, or use cheesy lines in order to make a rhyme. But I definitely applaud this song, all the lines actually make sense!
