Sheldon Harnick. Fra »Fiddler on the Roof«, 1964

 

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 wood'en floors below.

There could be one long staircase 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 whife, my Golde, looking like a rich man's

whife 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.

If I were rich, I'd have the time that I lack,

To sit in the synagogue and pray;

 

And may be 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,

Coda:

You decreed I should be what I am;

Would it spoil some vast eternal plan,

If I were a wealthy man?
