"If" as written by Leah Jacqueline Cooney, Martin Karl Sandberg and Rami Yacoub....
Sittin over here
Starin in your face
With lust in my eyes
Sure don't give a damn and ya
Don't know that I've been dreamin of ya in
My fantasies
Never once you looked at me
Don't even realize that I'm wantin you
To fulfill my needs
Think what you want
Let your mind free
Run free to a place no one dares to

How many night I've laid in bed excited over you
I've closed my eyes and thought of us a hundred different ways
I've gotten there so many times I wonder how bout you
Day and night
Night and day
All I've got to say is

If I was your girl
Oh the things I'd do to you
I'd make you call out my name
I'd ask who it belongs to
If I was your woman
The things I'd do to you
But I'm not
So I can't
Then I won't
But
If I was your girl

Allow me some time to play with your mind
And you'll get there again and again
Close your eyes and imagine my body undressed
Take your time cuz we've got all night, oooh
You on the rise as you're touchin my thighs and
Let me know what you like
If you like I'll go
Down da down down down da down down
I'll hold you in my hand and baby

Your smooth and shiny
Feels so good against my lips sugar
I want you so bad I can
Taste your love right now baby
Day and night
Night and day
All i've got to say is

If I was your girl
Oh the things I'd do to you
I'd make you call out my name
I'd ask who it belongs to
If I was your woman
The things I'd do to you
But I'm not
So I can't
Then I won't
But
If I was your girl

If I was your girl
Oh the things I'd do to you
I'd make you call out my name
I'd ask who it belongs to
If I was your woman
The things I'd do to you
But I'm not
So I can't
Then I won't
But
If I was your girl

I've laid in bed excited over you
One hundred different way I've thought ya
Many, maaany
(day and night, night and day)
Allll I got to say is

If I was your girl
Oh the things I'd do to you
I'd make you call out my name
I'd ask who it belongs to
If I was your woman
The things I'd do to you
But I'm not
So I can't
Then I won't
But
If I was your girl

If I was your girl
Oh the things I'd do to you
I'd make you call out my name
I'd ask who it belongs to
If I was your woman
The things I'd do to you
But I'm not
So I can't
Then I won't
But
If I was your girl

If I was your girl
Oh the things I'd do to you
I'd make you call out my name
I'd ask who it belongs to
If I was your woman
The things I'd do to you
But I'm not
So I can't
Then I won't
But
If I was your girl

    General CommentThe meaning to this song is pretty obvious...Someone fantasizing over somebody who doesn't look their way.

    I remember loving this song back when I was in elementary school haha...I knew the lyrics but I'm not sure if I completely "knew" the lyrics at that time..

    General CommentI like the chorus and every verse before the chorus.. the song could've been much more than raw lust, though. >_>

    Or, well, I dunno, better written. Smooth and shiny? Jesus, Janet.

    General Comment"Your smooth and shiny"? Shouldn't there be a noun after that? Nevermind, I don't want it. This seems to have begun the whole musical pornography phase that lead to "Damita Ho". We get it! Enough already. Play another note, for the love of God!

    General Commentha... I think the "smooth and shiny" line is perfect for this song. Plus, I think the point of the song is supposed to be about raw lust.

    General Commentsuper sexy! super real! It's just so true, face it, every one has this kind of experience during his lifetime , fantasizing about someone in a sexual scenario. Janet has the gut to sing it out!
