I Wish is a song by British recording artist Cher Lloyd. It was released on 2 September 2013 as the lead single from her second studio album, Sorry I'm Late.

Critical Reception

Critical reception of the single thus far has been positive. Rick Florino of ArtistDirect described the song as a "kind of sputtering spunky pop that bona fide hits are made of. As the beat bounces and horns pipe up, the singer bobs and weaves through a myriad of attributes she "wishes" she had—namely "a butt and a rack"". He also stated: "Add to that a flavorful verse from T.I., and you've got one of the catchiest and (sassiest) gems this year. Her next album might just be her Mona Lisa to date". Digital Spy awarded the song 3/5 stars, and called the single "undeniably fun".

Music Video

The music video was released on September 24, 2013. It was directed by Gil Green.

Lyrics

Solo Version

Baby, I seen the chick you're with, wish that I never did
Perfect and five foot ten, wish that I never did
'Cause I know I've been wasting time tryinna catch your eye
Yeah I know that I 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, 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, I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a butt full of cash
'Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

(Uh-huh, yeah)

Baby, I'm gonna keep it real, boy you da one I want
I don't own any five inch heels, just got my Nike's on
Never thought I was insecure, boy look at what you done (what you done)
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, yeah

I wish I was tall, 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, I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a butt full of cash
'Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

T.I.:
Hey, now don't you wanna do some, baby,
With the roof gone, baby
Aston Martin look retarded like the coup gone crazy
I'm not sure what kinda fella you like
But I can give 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
Yeah, you like to run your mouth, well you're 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 wishing you could kiss me
Do you really wanna do that, eh?
Make a wish, girl

(Yeaah..)

I wish I had, I wish I had, I wish I had yeah yeah

'Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
