I'd Rather Be Your Lover Written：Madonna/Dave Hall/Isley Brothers/C.Jasper 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 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 Bridge: And all that I know Is I just don't understand Why my, mmmm, happiness always lies In the palm of your hand, but (chorus) 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? (bridge) (chorus) Are you surprised? (Spoken:) Tell me whatch-ya want, tell me whatch-ya need Tell me whatch-ya want, tell me whatch-ya need I, I betcha I, I give you whatch-ya 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 (bridge) (chorus, repeat) Are you surprised? (chorus) Are you surprised? Are you?
