If You Were a Woman (And I Was a Man)

(if you were a woman and I was a man)
(would it be so hard to understand)
(that a heart’s a heart and we do what we can)
(if you were a woman and I was a man … I was a man …)
(ooooh)

How’s it feel to be a woman
How’s it feel to be a man
Are we really that different
Tell me where you stand
I look at you, you look away
Why do you say we’re night and day?
I’d like to try another way
Oh baby, for just one day

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand?
That a heart’s a heart and we do what we can
If you were a woman and I was a man
If you were a woman and I was a man, noh, ho

How’s it feel to be a hunter
How’s it feel to be the prey
Is there really a reason
For this game we play?
I look at you, you look away
Why do you say we’re night and day?
I’d like to try another way
Oh darling, for just one day

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand
That a heart’s a heart and we do what we can
If you were a woman and I was a man
If you were a woman and I was a man …

Instrumental

Hey, we’re just two people trying to love
Oh but how, how can we love?
With this wall between us, holding us back?

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand
That a heart’s a heart and we do what we can
If you were a woman and I was a man
If you were a woman and I was a man
If you were a woman and I was a man, oh

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand
That a heart’s a heart and we do what we can

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand
That a heart’s a heart and we do what we can

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand
That a heart’s a heart and we do what we can

If you were a woman and I was a man
(I was a man) …

Under Suspicion

I put my trust in you ‘cos I’m not the suspicious kind
But it seems to me that there’s someone on your mind
And maybe I’m wrong and maybe there’s some mistake
But I won’t take any chances, I’m watching every mover you make
I never felt so scared and helpless before
I wish I could believe in you but I just gotta be sure

You’re under suspicion all the time
You’re under suspicion all the time

When we talk I can see you can’t look me straight in the eye
What’s all the secrecy, you got me wondering why
Is there someone you met to make you regret your decision
How could you forget all our plans and all our ambitions
Don’t try to pull the wool right over my eyes
You think you’re pretty smart but I can see right through your disguise

You’re under suspicion all the time
You’re under suspicion all the time

Instrumental

You’re under suspicion all the time
You’re under suspicion all the time
You’re under suspicion all the time
You’re under suspicion

Instrumental

You’re under suspicion all the time
You’re under suspicion all the time
