i’ll be that girl lyrics – barenaked ladies

if i were you
and i wish that i were you
all the things i’d do, to make myself turn blue
i suppose, i’d start by removin’ all my clothes
tie my pantyhose around my neck

i’ll be that girl, you would be right over
if i were a field, you would be in clover
if i were the sun, you would be in shadow
if i had a gun, there’d be no tomorrow

if you will not have me as myself
perhaps as someone else
perhaps as you, i’ll be worth noticin’
then even a eunuch won’t resist
the magic of a kiss, from such as me

i’ll be that girl, you would be right over
if i were a field, you would be in clover
if i were the sun, you would be in shadow
if i had a gun, there’d be no tomorrow

it’s time to kick off your shoes
learn how to choose sadness
it’s time to throw off those chains
addle our brains with madness
’cause we’ve got plenty of time
to grow old and die
but when at last your beauty’s faded
you’ll be glad that i have waited for you

when you’re done
with being beautiful and young
when that course is run
then come to me

i’ll be that girl, you would be right over
if i were a field, you would be in clover
if i were the sun, you would be in shadow
if i had a gun, there’d be no tomorrow

there’d be no tomorrow
(la la la la la la)
there’d be no tomorrow
(la la la la la la)
there’d be no tomorrow
(la la la la la la)
there’d be no tomorrow
(la la la la la la la la la la)
