ROLF HARRIS


If I Were A Rich Man Lyrics

IF I WERE A RICH MAN,
DAIDLE, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DIGGUH,

DIGGUH, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DUM.

ALL DAY LONG I`D BIDDY, BIDDY BUM,

IF I WERE A WEALTHY MAN.

WOULDN`T HAVE TO WORK HARD,

DAIDLE, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DIGGUH,

DIGGUH, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DUM.

IF I WERE A BIDDY, BIDDY RICH,

DIGGUH, DIGGUH, DEEDLE, DAIDLE MAN.

I`D BUILD A BIG TALL HOUSE WITH ROOMS BY THE DOZEN,

RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TOWN;

A FINE TIN ROOF WITH REAL WOODEN FLOORS BELOW.

THERE COULD BE ONE LONG STAIR CASE JUST GOING UP

AND ONE EVEN LONGER COMING DOWN;

AND ONE MORE LEADING NOWHERE JUST FOR SHOW.

I`D FILL MY YARD WITH CHICKS AND TURKEYS

AND GEESE AND DUCKS

FOR THE TOWN TO SEE AND HEAR;

SQUAWKING JUST AS NOISILY AS THEY CAN.

AND EACH LOUD QUACK AND CLUCK AND GOBBLE AND HONK

WILL LAND LIKE A TRUMPET ON THE EAR;

AS IF TO SAY HERE LIVES A WEALTHY MAN.

IF I WERE A RICH MAN,

DAIDLE, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DIGGUH,

DIGGUH, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DUM.

ALL DAY LONG I`D BIDDY, BIDDY BUM,

IF I WERE A WEALTHY MAN.

WOULDN`T HAVE TO WORK HARD,

DAIDLE, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DIGGUH,

DIGGUH, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DUM.

IF I WERE A BIDDY, BIDDY RICH,

DIGGUH, DIGGUH, DEEDLE, DAIDLE MAN.

I SEE MY WIFE GOLDE LOOKING LIKE A RICH MAN`S WIFE

WITH A PROPER DOUBLE CHIN;

SUPERVISING MEALS TO HER HEART`S DELIGHT.

I SEE HER PUTTING ON AIRS

AND STRUTTING LIKE A PEACOCK

OY! WHAT A HAPPY MOOD SHE`S IN.

SCREAMING AT THE SERVANTS DAY AND NIGHT.

THE MOST IMPORTANT MEN IN TOWN WILL COME TO FAWN ON ME;

THEY WILL ASK ME TO ADVISE THEM,

LIKE SOLOMAN THE WISE,

`IF YOU PLEASE, REB TEVYE, PARDON ME, REB TEVYE.`

POSING PROBLEMS THAT WOULD CROSS A RABBI`S EYES.

BOI, BOI, BOI, BOI, BOI, BOI, BOI, BOI, BOI.

AND IT WON`T MAKE ONE BIT OF DIFF`RENCE

IF I ANSWER RIGHT OR WRONG?

WHEN YOU`RE RICH, THEY THINK YOU REALLY KNOW.

IF I WERE RICH, I`D HAVE THE TIME THAT I LACK,

TO SIT IN A SYNAGOGUE AND PRAY;

AND MAYBE HAVE A SEAT BY THE EASTERN WALL.

AND I`D DISCUSS THE HOLY BOOKS WITH THE LEARNED MEN
SEVEN HOURS EV`RY DAY;

THIS WOULD BE THE SWEETEST THING OF ALL.

IF I WERE A RICH MAN,

DAIDLE, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DIGGUH,

DIGGUH, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DUM.

ALL DAY LONG I`D BIDDY, BIDDY BUM,

IF I WERE A WEALTHY MAN.

WOULDN`T HAVE TO WORK HARD,

DAIDLE, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DIGGUH,

DIGGUH, DEEDLE, DAIDLE, DUM.

LORD, WHO MADE THE LION AND THE LAMB,

YOU DECREED I SHOULD BE WHAT I AM;

WOULD IT SPOIL SOME VAST ETERNAL PLAN,

IF I WERE A WEALTHY MAN?
