I'd like That if we could cycle down some lane
I'd like that if we could ride into the rain
No macs, getting wet
I'd be your Albert if you'd be Victoria, hah hah
We'd laugh because each drop would make me grow up
Really high, really high like a really high thing
Say, a sunflower

I'd like that

I'd like that (What would you like?) if we could lay before my fire
I'd like that (What would you like?) if you could slide me from this wire
Toasting fork, I'll be done
I wouldn't hector if you'd be Helen of Troy, oh boy
We'd laugh because each flame would make me grow up
Really high, really high like a really high thing
Say, a sunflower

I'd Like that

I'd smile so much my face would crack in two
And you could fix it with your kissing glue
I'd like that
Yes, I'd like that

I'd like that (what would you like?) if we could float away in bed
I'd like that (what would you like?) if I could row your heart and head
With you laid on one arm
I'd be your Nelson if you'd be my Hamilton, what fun
We'd laugh because each stroke would make me grow up
Really high, really high like a really high thing
Say, a sunflower (repeats)

Say a sunflower I became
I'd be growing in your lane
