  • If I said you have a beautiful body
    Would you hold it against me?
    If I swore you were an angel
    Would you treat me like the devil tonight?
    If I was dying of thirst
    Would your flowing love come quench me?
    If I said you have a beautiful body
    Would you hold it against me?

    Now we could talk all night about the weather
    Could tell you 'bout my friends out on the coast
    I could ask a lot of crazy questions
    Or ask you what I really wanna know

    If I said you have a beautiful body
    Would you hold it against me?
    If I swore you were an angel
    Would you treat me like the devil tonight?
    If I was dying of thirst
    Would your flowing love come quench me?
    If I said you have a beautiful body
    Would you hold it against me?

    Now rain can fall so soft against a window
    Sun can shine so bright up in the sky
    But daddy always told me, "Don't make small talk"
    He said, "Come on out and say what's on your mind"

    So if I said you have a beautiful body
    Would you hold it against me?
    If I swore you were an angel
    Would you treat me like the devil tonight?
    If I was dying of thirst
    Would your flowing love come quench me
    If I said you have a beautiful body
    Would you hold it against me?

    If I said you have a beautiful body
    Would you hold it against me?
    If I swore you were an angel
    Would you treat me like the devil tonight? Writer/s: David Bellamy

  • Lee Johnson from WiltshireAnd the Bellamys only prevented their asses getting sued by Britney's people by publicly apologizing for the comment. It's a great title for a song, but no one person or organization owns those words outright.
  • Luke from Manchester, UkMajor similarities between this song's rhythm and melody and Lyin' Eyes by the Eagles.
