If I was a noted architect, I'd wanna be an Antonio Gaudi type architect. (I'd watch more carefully for streetcars, though.)

If I was a skilled guitarist, I'd wanna be a Stevie Ray Vaughn type guitarist. (I'd pass on the helicopter ride, though.)

If I was a famous ship's captain, I'd wanna be an Edward J. Smith type ship's captain. (I'd stay up into the Middle Watch, though.)

If I was a Cyburbia poster I would want to be a Maister style poster. Oh wait. Nevermind.

I also want to give dandy props for giving exactly the right number of 'dibba dibbas'. You could tell she was singing while posting.

If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it's broken
So they'd think that I was sleepin alone
I'd put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I know that she'd be faithful
Waitin for me to come home
If I were a boy

Heaven loves ya
The clouds part for ya
Nothing stands in your way
When you're a boy
Clothes always fit ya
Life is a pop of the cherry
When you're a boy
When you're a boy
You can wear a uniform
When you're a boy
Other boys check you out
You get a girl
These are your favorite things
When you're a boy
Boys

If I was your girlfriend
Would U let me dress U
I mean, help U pick out your clothes
Before we go out
Not that you're helpless
But sometimes, sometimes
Those are the things that bein' in love's about

Do people want this topic to stay light, or shall we drop down the rabbit hole?
It gets dark quickly.

If I were a well-paid jazz & folk music singer around the New York City night scene,
I'd be me until I lost most of my vocal chords to Covid-19.
