If I Were A Rich Man (Fiddler On The Roof) - Musical Cast Recording

Dear God You made many many poor people

 

I realize of course that it's no shame to be poor

 

But it's no great honor either

 

So what would have been so terrible

 

If I had a small fortune

 

If I were a rich man ya ha deedle deedle

Didle didle deedle deedle dum

 

All day long I'd biddy biddy bum

 

If I were a wealthy man

 

I wouldn't have to work hard

 

Ya ha deedle deedle didle

Didle deedle deedle dum

 

If I were a biddy biddy rich yidle

 

Diddle didle didle 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 would 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

 

Walking just nosely as i can

 

And each loud 'Cheep'

 

And 'Swaqwk' and 'Honk' and 'Quack'

Would land like a trumpet on the ear

 

As if to say "Here lives a wealthy man"

 

If I were a rich man ya ha deedle deedle

Didle didle deedle deedle dum

 

All day long I'd biddy biddy bum

If I were a wealthy man

 

I wouldn't have to work hard

Ya ha deedle deedle didle

Didle deedle deedle dum

 

If I were a biddy biddy rich yidle

 

Diddle didle didle man

 

I see my wife my Goldie

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

Would come to fawn on me

 

They would ask me to advise them like a Solomon the Wise

If you please Reb Tevye

 

Pardon me Reb Tevye

 

Posing problems that would cross a rabbi's eyes

 

And it won't make one bit of difference

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 the synagogue and pray

 

And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall

 

And I'd discuss the Holy books with the learned men

Several hours every day

 

That would be the sweetest thing of all

 

If I were a rich man ya ha deedle deedle

Didle didle deedle deedle dum

 

All day long I'd biddy biddy bum

 

If I were a wealthy man

 

I wouldn't have to work hard

Ya ha deedle deedle didle didle

Deedle deedle dum

 

Like make a lie make a lie

 

You don't cry should be that i lie

 

Would you for you some fest turn fly

 

If I were a weathy man
