I realize, of course, that its no shame to be poor
So, what would have been so terrible if I had a small fortune?
Id build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen
There would be one long staircase just going up
Id fill my yard with chicks and turkeys and geese and ducks
And each loud cheep and swaqwk and honk and quack
I see my wife, my Golde, looking like a rich mans wife
I see her putting on airs and strutting like a peacock
The most important men in town would come to fawn on me!
Posing problems that would cross a rabbis eyes!
And it wont make one bit of difference if I answer right or wrong
And Id discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day
