If You Wanna


Paul McCartney paulmccartney.filminspector.com




"If You Wanna" is an album track from Paul McCartney's 1997 album "Flaming Pie." It is a "driving across the United States" kind of song, and there is some great guitar work on "If You Wanna." "Flaming Pie" was sort of a comeback for Paul after a lackluster period, and this is one of the reasons why. He seems able to come up with unheralded winners all at once, out of the blue, as if the creative genius ebbs and flows, echoing the mysterious pulses of his own life.

Paul has said about "If You Wanna":
We had a day off in Minneapolis when we were on tour. Linda was going off to do something and I stayed behind in the room and wrote a song on guitar. Recording wise, I used the same process as the other songs I did with Steve Miller: me on drums, Steve on guitar, both playing acoustic guitars, I did the vocals and produced Steve’s guitar stuff. This is the kind of song you might hear when you’re driving across the desert in America, Easy Rider country.
Paul worked with Steve Miller in recording "If You Wanna," but he actually had written the song years before during his "New World Tour."



If you wanna
If you wanna
If you wanna love me again
I'll take you for a ride in my Cadillac
He'll be in the front, we'll be in the back

When you're ready
Let me know
I'll be waiting
To make arrangements for the trip
To make arrangements for the trip
To make arrangements for the trip

And if you wanna
If you wanna
If you wanna do it again
I'll take you to the coast for a holiday
You can be my guest
You can let me pay-yeah

When you're ready
Well, let me know
I'll be waiting
To make arrangements for the trip
To make arrangements for the trip
To make arrangements for the trip
Whenever you're ready

When you want to love me
This is what you need
To be thinking of me
When you plant the seed of love

When you're ready
Let me know
I'll be waiting
To make arrangements for the trip
To make arrangements for the trip
To make arrangements for the trip

Well, if you want to love me
This is what you need
To be thinking of me
When you plant the seed
The seed of love

If you wanna
If you wanna
If you wanna love me again
I'll take you for a ride in my Cadillac
He'll be in the front, we'll be in the back

When you're ready
Let me know
I'll be waiting
To make arrangements for the trip
To make arrangements for the trip
To make arrangements for the trip
