About the song:

 

"If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body ..." derived its double understand title from a Groucho Marx line. Songwriter David Bellamy told country music journalist Tom Roland that he regularly watched Marx's program, You Bet Your Life, where Marx sometimes used the quote while interviewing an attractive female contestant, then shake his cigar and raise his eyebrows to elicit a reaction. The comment stuck in Bellamy's head as a possible hook line for a song.

 

The song earned its first success in Northern Ireland before becoming a hit in the United States.

The Bellamy Brothers - If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Lyrics

 

[Chorus]

If I said you have a beautiful body

Would you hold it against me?

If I swore you were an angel

Would you treat me like the devil tonight?

If I was dying of thirst

Would your flowing love come quench me?

If I said you have a beautiful body

Would you hold it against me?

 

[Verse 1]

Now we could talk all night

About the weather

Could tell you about my friends

Out on the coast

I could ask a lot of crazy questions

Or ask you what I really wanna know

 

[Chorus]

If I said you have a beautiful body

Would you hold it against me?

If I swore you were an angel

Would you treat me like the devil tonight?

If I was dying of thirst

Would your flowing love come quench me?

If I said you have a beautiful body

Would you hold it against me?

[Verse 2]

Now rain can fall so soft

Against the window

Sun can shine so bright

Up in the sky

But Daddy always told me

"Don't make small talk"

He said, "Come on out and say

What's on your mind"

 

[Chorus]

So if I said you have a beautiful body

Would you hold it against me?

If I swore you were an angel

Would you treat me like the devil tonight?

If I was dying of thirst

Would your flowing love come quench me?

If I said you have a beautiful body

Would you hold it against me?

 

[Chorus / Outro]

If I said you have a beautiful body

Would you hold it against me?

If I swore you were an angel

Would you treat me like the devil tonight?
