about

Sarah describes her second single as the album’s TNT song. The lighthearted, drum driven, uplifting ukulele combined with electric guitar and Music Hall-esque piano compliment Sarah’s thorny tongue in cheek dispassionate view of social norms expressed through her lyrical mastery and Yorkshire accent. This summer ready single will boost the seasonal heat and ignite spontaneous human cavorting all around.

lyrics

If I Said
By Sarah Caltieri

Verse 1
If I said, I don’t really own a lot
And that a walk in the park would do just fine.
If I said, I’m not really one for big fast cars.
A mini’s about the size of mine.
Would you love me for everything I’ve got,
Even if I couldn’t always be on time.
Would you love me for everything I’ve got,
Even if I don’t always drink red wine?
If I said, sometimes I get a little grumpy,
But I don’t mean to cause anybody harm,
Would you love me for everything I’ve got,
even if It was just that time of the moon?

Chorus
And what’s the point of a big old house,
If there’s nobody at home?
And what’s the need for a zillion cyber friends
If we’re forgetting how to speak through the phone?

AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh,

Verse 2
If I said, I don’t always like reading some magazines,
They’ll only imply I’m not thin enough,
And if I said, Don’t always like wearing makeup, but sometimes I’ll stick a good dress on,
Would you love me, for everything I’ve got,
Even if I didn’t always look the part?
Would you love me, for everything I’ve got,
even if I’ll keep my curves right where they are?

Chorus
And what’s the point of a big old house,
If there’s nobody at home?
And what’s the need for a zillion cyber friends
If we’re forgetting how to speak through the phone?

AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh,
AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh,

If I said, If I said, If I said, If I said,

AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh,
AAAAHhhhhhhhhh, AAAAHhhhhhhhhh,

If I said, I don’t really own a lot
And that a walk in the park would do just fine.
