"If You Were a Woman (And I Was a Man)" is a song that was written and composed by Desmond Child and recorded by Bonnie Tyler.
Produced by Jim Steinman, the dramatic, rock-leaning song was released as the first single from her 1986 album Secret Dreams and Forbidden Fire. The track features a saxophone solo by Lenny Pickett, formerly of Tower of Power and then a member of the Saturday Night Live band. Critics have noted that this song's chorus has a melody and chord progression similar to the #1 Bon Jovi hit "You Give Love a Bad Name", which was also co-written by Child and released later that same year.
