If I was ...

If I was (If was) a better man (a better man)
Would fellow men (would fellow men) take me to their hearts

If I was a stronger man
Carrying the weight of popular demand
Tell me would that alarm her
I'd never harm her at all

If I was a soldier
Captive arms I'd lay before her

If I was a sailor
Seven oceans I'd sail to her

If I was (If I was) a wiser man (a wiser man)
Would other men (would other men) reach out and touch me

If I was (if I was) a kinder man (a kinder man)
Dishing up love for a hungry world
Tell me would that appease her
I want to please her again

If I was a painter
I'd paint a world that couldn't taint her

If I was a leader
On food of love from above I would feed her

If I was a poet
All my love in burning words I would show it

If I was her lover
Her eyes in kisses I would cover

Come here my baby
Oh, they can't touch you now
I'll keep you safe and warm
I'll never leave you at all

Come here my baby
Oh, they won't touch you
Dishing up love for a hungry world
Tell me would that appease you
I want to please you again

If I was a painter
I'd paint a world that couldn't taint her

If I was a leader
On food of love from above I would feed her

If I was a poet
All my love in burning words I would show it
