I mean everybody say "What if." What if I could fly? 
What if man could fly for real? Wouldn't that be something? 
Man I would surely touch the sky if I could just fly
You know we have our dreams, we always say what if
What if this what if that
What if you and me were together? What if? 
Forever, I mean eternity for real
What if? 

Ooh hoo if: yeah: Ooh: aww baby: yeah: listen

If I were a painter baby, I'd paint a picture of us
Some where on a private island making love (yeah)

Now if I were a pirate baby I'd discover (yeah) 
You for me cause girl you are a treasure (yeah)

If I was a dream baby here's what I'd do
Allow every good dream you dream to come true (yeah)

If I were a promise baby then you could bet 
(yeah) that every promise made to you girl will be kept yes it would

If I was a magician baby then you'd have no 
Fear cause I'd snap my fingers and make your worries disappear if I were

If I were all these things then girl to you I'd give all these things
Fly you straight to heaven and Step with
You while the angels sing
I'd ask you to marry me give you the sun for a diamond ring
If I could I'd do those things

Now If I were a preacher baby, my sermon would be about how 
God opened up heaven and rained you on me (yeah)

If I was a doctor baby I surely would give 
You something for your pain that'll make you feel real good 

Now if I were a psychic baby then our love 
Would last cause I'd go into the future 
And prevent all break ups from coming to past - Lord

If I were feeling down baby and really going through
All friends are gone then I know that I can count on you

One more, If we were at a club baby and this jam came on
I'd grab you by the hand and tell you let's Step to this song

If I were all these things then girl to you I'd give all these things
Fly you straight to heaven and Step with
You while the angels sing
I'd ask you to marry me give you the sun for a diamond ring
If I could I'd do those things

If I could blink my eye and be a giant eagle in the sky girl
I would swoop down and fly you straight into the sun ooh

If I could pick a number out of every number girl you'd be my number 1
Ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah

If I were all these things then girl to you I'd give all these things
Fly you straight to heaven and Step with
You while the angels sing
I'd ask you to marry me give you the sun for a diamond ring
If I could I'd do those things
