Lyrics (Album Version)

Cher Lloyd - I Wish ft. T.I 03:49

Cher Lloyd - I Wish ft. T.I.

T.I.:
Aight, ha ha, make a wish girl, you deserve it

Cher Lloyd:
Uh uh, yeah

Baby I seen the chick you're with
Wish that I never did (Oh oh, uh)
Freaking perfect and five foot ten
Just wanna punch her lip (Oh oh, yeah)
'Cause I know I've been wastin' time
Tryin' to catch your eye (Oh oh, uh)
Yeah, I know that I've been so blind
Thinking that I'm your type

And now I'm at home, I'm all alone
'Bout to pick up the telephone
Got to call my Genie so he knows

Yeah, I wish I was tall and I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
I wish I had style and I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a butt and a rack
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)

Oh, uh uh, yeah

Baby I'm gonna keep it real
Boy you're the one I want (Oh oh, uh)
I don't own any five inch heels
Just got my Nikes on (Oh oh, yeah)
Never thought I was insecure
Boy look at what you done (Oh oh, yeah)
I don't know what I studied for
Clearly you like 'em dumb

And now I'm at home, I'm all alone
'Bout to pick up the telephone
Got to call my Genie so he knows (So he knows)

Yeah, I wish I was tall and I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
I wish I had style and I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a butt and a rack
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)

T.I.:
Hi, ha ha ha

Hey, now don't you wanna do
Somethin' baby with the roof gone
Baby Aston Martin look retarded
Like the coup gone crazy
I'm not sure what kind of fella you like
But I can get you paradise
Have it however you like

I'm talking solitaire iced out
Ring, watch, necklace
Ain't no talking reckless
Girl I'm certified respected, girl
You like to run your mouth
Well you about to learn a lesson girl

Yeah you the one but I'll
Replace you in a second girl
And I ain't even trying
To see you naked girl
Wait, there I go exaggerate
Clearly carried away

But what I'm saying you could true that
I wanna be wherever you at
So you're wishing you could kiss me
Do you really wanna do tha-at?
Make a wish girl, ha ha ha

Cher Lloyd:
Yeah, I wish I was tall and I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
I wish I had style and I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a butt and a rack
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)

I wish I was tall
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
I wish I had, I wish I had
I wish I had, yeah yeah, ooh
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)

Ow, ha ha ha!

Lyrics (Solo Version)

Uh uh, yeah

Baby I seen the chick you're with
Wish that I never did (Oh oh, uh)
P-p-perfect and five foot ten
Wish that I never did (Oh oh, yeah)
'Cause I know I've been wastin' time
Tryin' to catch your eye (Oh oh, uh)
Yeah, I know that I've been so blind
Thinking that I'm your type

And now I'm at home, I'm all alone
'Bout to pick up the telephone
Got to call my Genie so he knows

Yeah, I wish I was tall and I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
I wish I had style and I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)

Oh, uh uh, yeah

Baby I'm gonna keep it real
Boy you're the one I want (Oh oh, uh)
I don't own any five inch heels
Just got my Nikes on (Oh oh, yeah)
Never thought I was insecure
Boy look at what you done (Oh oh, yeah)
I don't know what I studied for
Boy look at what you done

And now I'm at home, I'm all alone
'Bout to pick up the telephone
Got to call my Genie so he knows (So he knows)

Yeah, I wish I was tall and I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
I wish I had style and I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)

She ain't it
Yeah I'm talking 'bout the one you're with
Yeah I'm talking 'bout the way I wish
You'd come closer to me
You'd come closer to me
You'd come closer to me

She ain't it
Yeah I'm talking 'bout the one you're with
Yeah I'm talking 'bout the way I wish
You'd come closer to me
You'd come closer to me
You'd come closer to me

Yeah, I got to call my Genie so he knows

Yeah, I wish I was tall and I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
I wish I had style and I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a bag full of cash
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)

I wish I was tall
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
I wish I had, I wish I had
I wish I had, yeah yeah, ooh
'Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come, kiss me boy)
