Music Trivia -> Same Title, Different Song -> If I Were You

This section lists songs with identical titles, but different lyrics. To help us keep track of which songs are which, the first two lines of each unique song are listed.

"If I Were You"

The following are all the different songs that are titled "If I Were You". Check out the index for more examples of songs that have Same Title, but a Different Song.
