Lyrics Print lyrics

I could be your sister

I could be your mother

We could be friends

I'd even be your brother

But I'd rather be your lover

That's right

I'd rather be your lover

 

I don't know where I stand with you

I never ever make any plans with you

I don't know what I mean to you

The only thing I know is I dream of you

 

And all that I know (all I know)

Is I just don't understand (just don't understand)

Why my mmmm happiness

Always lies in the palm of your hand but

 

I could be your sister

I could be your mother

We could be friends

I'd even be your brother

But I'd rather be your lover

That's right

I'd rather be your lover

 

Sometimes I know what you're thinking next

But wouldn't it be better if I loved you less

Sometimes I think that I made you up

But wouldn't it be better if I gave you up

 

And all that I know (all I know)

Is I just don't understand (just don't understand)

Why my mmmm happiness

Always lies in the palm of your hand

 

I could be your sister

I could be your mother

We could be friends

I'd even be your brother

But I'd rather be your lover

That's right

I'd rather be your lover

 

Are you surprised

 

(Me'Shell NdegéOcello:)

Tell me whatcha want, tell me whatcha need

Tell me whatcha want, tell me whatcha need

I I betcha I I give you whatcha need

Take a walk within me venture through the dark sea

Can't you see I need you beside me

Don't you see I want you to want me

 

And all that I know (all I know)

(Tell me whatcha want, tell me whatcha need)

Is I just don't understand (just don't understand)

Why my mmmm happiness

(Tell me whatcha want, tell me whatcha need)

Always lies in the palm of your hand

(Now sing the chorus)

 

I could be your sister

I could be your mother

We could be friends

I'd even be your brother

But I'd rather be your lover

That's right

I'd rather be your lover

 

I could be your sister

I could be your mother

We could be friends

I'd even be your brother

But I'd rather be your lover

That's right

I'd rather be your lover

Are you surprised

 

I could be your sister, 'cause

I could be your mother

We could be friends

I'd even be your brother

But I'd rather be your lover

That's right

I'd rather be your lover

 

Are you surprised

Are you

Credits

Written by Madonna, Dave Hall, Isley Brothers and C. Jasper

Produced by Madonna and Dave -Jam- Hall

Featuring Me'Shell NdegéOcello

 

I'd Rather Be Your Lover contains a sample of 'It's Your Thing', performed by Lou Donaldson

 

Madonna originally wrote a demo of this song with Shep Pettibone, but she abandoned the project and reworked the demo with Dave Hall. Pettibone isn't credited in the album booklet, though his name has been added on Madonna.com.

 

There exists a version of the song featuring the late rapper Tupac Shakur. It's commonly assumed that this was the original version but for certain reasons his lines were replaced by Maverick artist Me'Shell.
