If I were a rich man! Clip from
Fiddler on the Roof - song sung by Topol
If I were a rich man,
Daidle, deedle, daidle, 
diguh diguh deedle daidle dum,
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum,
If I were a wealthy man.

Wouldnt have to work hard,
daidle deedle daidle
diguh, diguh deedle daidle dum
If I were a biddy, biddy rich
diguh, diguh, 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 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.
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

I see my wife my Golde 
looking like a rich mans wife with a proper double chin
Supervising meals to her hearts delight.

I see her putting on airs and struuting like a pea-cock 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 a Solomon the wise
If you please Reb Tevye pardon me Reb Tevye
Posing problems that would cross a rabbis eyes
Boi boi boi boi boi boi boi boi boi

And it wont make one bit of difference 
If I answer right or wrong.
When you're a rich man they think you really know
If I were a rich man I'd have the time 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 seven hours evry day.
This would be the sweetest thing of all.

Daidle deedle daidle 
diguh diguh deedle daidle dum
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum
If I were a wealthy man
Wouldnt have to work hard
daidle deedle daidle diguh diguh
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!!!
